Here's a song for Dr. D.. fellow Warrior. He might like it because he loves Gettysburg and the Civil War.

But I'm going back to making some green smoothies and get more antioxidants. I have to get this weight off too. I'm on a mission!

Just thought I would mention that I have been eating a lot of avoids over Christmas - shellfish and wheat based deserts although sticking to basic diet guidelines most of the time and I feel bloated. Spare tyre blew up over Christmas and felt quite hard - has now gone back to normal size - I feel the prawns/calamari/potato/wheat deserts really are my downfall.  Will be sticking to basic typea diet for a few weeks before getting back into the warrior which I find difficult to follow.  Dont really feel that I fall into the warrior descriptions and yet I can see my sister and father in other genotypes without knowing their true type other than being a.

The difficulty with the warrior diet for me is that some of the avoids are on the typea as ok  and are things that we eat as a family.  Would doing type a strictly for a few weeks and then giving warrior a go be the way to handle this?  Am interested in everyones input as I have found some amazing comments in these threads

I'd like to see some potential changes in warrior food/exercise/something plans. They seem to struggle the most with actually being healthy and fit. It may not be easy for Gatherers, but they love the hardcore exercise that makes them trim; they just have to get up to do it. They at least have the option to consume lots of the right calories, and work the weight off like a battle to the death. Neither are available to warriors.

It seems a bit wild to think that throughout history such undesirable traits could really be those that prolong your blood line.

Quoted from 815


We don't all get that youth. In fact I didn't know how physically off I was until more recent years. I still barely know what it is like to feel sort of normal. All the pursuits of youth and benefits are mostly unfamiliar to me. You might imagine I'm not really excited about getting older and owning up to an even less functioning body than I have now. It is like I blinked and now I am getting old. But when I remember what I can, I realize how it was all a waste of time and did nothing for me today. The world is a different place for those that get to enjoy their youth as a healthy young adult than those having to choose the best fit lie.

It has to feel different to be someone like Dr. D'Adamo, or other warriors I have seen. You look back and realize you did a lot of stuff. You accomplished something, maybe started careers, maybe had kids, maybe invested something... Perhaps you traveled. Maybe you even did a lot of physically demanding things and looked good. Whatever it was, the great ability to process a lot of information and meet demands probably allowed you to do almost anything you wanted. It might seem unnerving to have that "I don't look like myself anymore" time in the mirror at middle age Dr. D talks about, but it is strangely more tolerable for warriors that have ever seen themselves. It really does seem easier for those that have ever been themselves. Your values and cares shift often as you age, so knowing what you have been and maybe could squeeze out again, provides some kind of confidence that allows you to be more concerned with other things. However that youthful figure had benefits that help acquire partners, children, jobs, etc, that are not connected to the later midlife look; but they are certainly important for confidence. There are warriors in my family just not that concerned with youth as they age, but they had it to start with.

I gained weight mostly because I had some extra animal protein.. turkey, duck. I also had some pumpkin pie.. (minus crust) and I made a batch of grain free brownies.. with evap cane juice..a neutral for me. That was the extent of my holiday goodness.  I stopped the meat, so I lost 2 lbs already.  I had gained 4 lbs.  I wasn't eating any gluten that I know of... except I got some palak paneer that was contaminated yesterday and my stomach let me know it last  night. I get stabbing pain and it does back flips... I cannot get anymore takeout..  
(who would put flour in palak paneer??!)  One of my resolutions is no more laziness about cooking. I like to cook  but, I don't always have time with working full time and two needy sons. (grown but can't seem to operate on their own yet)

You could be a Warrior ...teetering on Explorer? Just not enough for Dr. D to genotype you as an Explorer.  You never spoke about your visit to him so I don't know what your story is.  I know my dad was a Warrior and not sure about my mom. She was an A though.  

My son is a B, Nomad. He's a lot like me. We like the same music and movies, TV shows.  The environment that you're raised in has a lot to do with it too.

Here's some relaxing music for y'all. Personally helps me when I get too high strung. Music always makes everything better. Whatever challenges you are currently facing, you can get through them. You are stronger than you think.

COE says I am a Warrior. Warriors and Explorers have almost nothing in common.

I still don't know what is so wrong with me. For a few days it seemed like I was doing real well. Now since I am home I am not? Stress? Maybe. I can't figure it out. Part of me wonders about the water... Any anti-bacterial type stuff makes me feel better. Anti-biotics make me feel awesome. I need to figure it out. I am losing the battle to be healthy.

Yeah I got a 0. Funny, I thought I would be off the charts but now I think I see that in order for that to happen you can't have a dry digestive track that isn't feed too much of your blood antigen to bacteria.

I'm talking about that we have a certain percentage of the genotypes in us. Explorers are very sensitive to chemicals and toxins. I didn't mean what they have in common.  You could be having chemical reactions, or food reactions. I gave up gluten..feel tons better and now I'm stopping eggs.I'm trying to be more vegetarian. I'd like to stop dairy as well, but I'm doing one thing at a time. I want the weight off.  

If you want to use another form of self healing, that is recommend by Dr. D besides yoga, there is Chi Gong which is the healing form of tai chi. I practice Spring Forest Chi Gong. It's up to you if you think you can believe that the mind heals the body.

I don't think there is any validity to percentages of other genotypes at all. I think they was conjured up by the SWAMIX percentages.

You might have correlations, sensitivities being an expression of them. Sure, I have some of them. But you have to realize that some things are the problem for person X and for person Y they are a function of a different problem.

The percentages are not from the SWAMIX. They are from Dr. D.  ... Besides, for instance, gluten intolerance is gluten intolerance whether you are person X or person Y. On person X maybe it's diarrhea and on Person Y maybe it's schizophrenia and eczema.  The only way they'd know is if they stop the gluten and their symptoms clear up.

Glad you had 0-- that is one battle you do not have to face. I do wonder about what things you have in your life. A's can get a bit obsessive.

What things do you do to enjoy your time?

That is a strange question. I do stuff, but I spend most of it doing things I don't want to be doing. I am working on refinishing a guitar right now, then building an amplifier and spring reverb. Perhaps a volume control unit for stereo. But when I want to be working on a lot of things that are not so physical, my mind won't let me. I love reading books but I can't. Can't be involved in the professional world of dance either (only thing I ever really cared about). The list goes on. My body holds me back from everything.

Basically I do what I can, not what I want. It isn't good for self esteem and I don't enjoy it that much.

Weight is finally starting to move down..I stopped eggs. I am now on my compliant dairy only.. yogurt and paneer ... But it's only 5 servings a week. I was born allergic to cow dairy.  I may try stopping it and being vegan. Don't know if I can do it. I already dropped 2 lbs in  a week being off eggs.  
So I'm completely vegetarian as of this past week. I noticed a lot more energy right away since I stopped eggs. I was tested intolerant to eggs by Enterolab.. even dairy and soy. I'm not giving up soy...

Mayflowers, you can definitely do it. I thought I would miss dairy too but here I am and surprisingly, I can do without it and the pain it brings me.  Eggs and soy aren't the best for me either but I can tolerate eggs okay (don't really eat them though). You just gotta find foods that you like just as much to replace those things You can make small goals.  Say I'm going to go without this for a week, two weeks, three weeks etc. so it's not such an intimidating goal and allow yourself to have it on occasion. Keep up the good work

Thanks for the tips   When I tried to give up all dairy, I started waking up at night with anxiety attacks.  I'm having a little withdrawal from the eggs. The first day I felt great.  Tons of energy. The second day, yesterday, I felt soooo tired and 'off' feeling.  I just rested most of the day. Well my son left for CA for Army training Saturday so that might be contributing to it.    I'd like to stop grains too but then.. it may be too stressful for me stopping all this at once. The most important thing to stop was gluten. I feel so much better off it.

That's rough. Baby steps. As a major foodie, it can sometimes be hard letting go of that crutch (personally) - but it helps to have other things in my life that excite me other than food.

I didn't realize you could get withdrawals from not eating dairy and eggs any more. Do you think that is your body detoxing or something?

Oh yeah! The body gets used to and compensates a toxin affecting it.. so when the toxin stops, the body has to re-evaluate and realize it doesn't have to compensate anymore..and it kind of goes into shock IMO for a little while until it realizes its ok now and can relax...    

I was a foodie too. I'm a Taurus. We have the hardest of the entire zodiac as far as maintaining weight. We love gourmet food..rich food. The only thing that stops a lot of us from weighing 500 lbs is our vanity..which can be a good thing.  My coworker who is a Phd and a biochemist is a Taurus. She must weigh 350-400 lbs at 5'4".
Her vanity failed her.    I worry about her because she has two babies 2 and 5.  And when you say "baby steps" this girl goes to a gym and gets a personal trainer and ended up getting hurt and now she can't exercise.  I don't recommend personal trainers for anyone who's obese.  They should just get outside and walk off the weight..so much less stressful for them.  I hate that show Biggest Loser.  One of these days some huge contestant will drop dead  from  a heart attack and the BL will get sued for every penny they have

BL? How about the fact that on Gatherers, and mostly Explorers ever win it? All the Warriors on it fail. How depressing must that be?

I think it's because the Gatherer's and Explorers are heavier and lose more weight over all.

Uh or the fact that their bodies respond (positively) to hard exercise all day long and Warriors do not.
