Quoted from Averno

Even on BTD, I was still eating it on occasion in very small amounts up until about 6 months ago (mostly gluten additives in otherwise healthy foods. Ahem.. Ezekiel english muffins anyone?). Now, 100% wheat free, the difference is quite noticeable. More content? At ease? Less agitated, for sure.


I'm really trying to get off wheat. I would be easier if I lived alone and had total control of the food.  After I broke my wrist, I was eating it in the hospital... hey I was on morphine   and percocet.  So of course I have to start all over again.  I went off it yesterday again.  I may just have to resign myself to the fact that I will have slip ups and I'll just have to treat wheat like alcohol.  Good thing I'm not a celiac or I'd be in big trouble. Just will have to take it day by day. After all it's addictive like heroin

Quoted from Chloe
Not all Warriors are the same.  My DH is a Warrior....Many of his ancestors had diabetes....


No but we're pretty  close.  My father had senile diabetes and he had to take oral insulin.  He never exercised except he would walk from the train station to work. When he retired, he stopped walking and had a stroke a year later. (he also had high blood pressure which I don't have).
This is what I'm working on now. ...to avoid diabetes.

Folks, I just wanted to make a connection with warriors because I believe this is my genotype.  I have only been involved about a month and still learning that if I stray from my recommended diet I start feeling lousy.

So I was reading about genotypes and wondering "What is an O+ maybe non secretor maybe warrior to do?"  Do I bite the bullet and buy secretor and genotype test kits, and SWAMI?  Is this what you all did?  Or do I shoot from the hip (body shape, fingerprints and german-irish heritage) and do what others have done?

I hope to hear from some of my (I suspect) war-loving brothers and sisters!



In my youth my motto was "Live Fast!'  Now I face old age with a body that has been lived fast in.

First, Type O can be Gatherer, Hunter or Explorer genotypes only...

The best choice without seeing a practitioner, in my opinion, is to get SWAMI Xpress.  It uses many more points of data to determine a very accurate diet specifically for you.  You can also get results for yourself either as a Secretor and Non and compare those results to see how important it is for you to get a Secretor test - ie., how many conflicting food ratings, etc.

I personally started by reading Eat Right, then Live Right, got the Secretor test, followed this diet for about 2 years, when The Genotype Diet came out, I transitioned to that diet and shortly after SWAMI Xpress was available, I moved to it and have been very happy as it seems to be the most comfortable and effective for me.

Hi everybody. I've lost 85 lbs on WW but time to move on and get involved here again. Hoping to get Swami early next year...

Hi - after thinking I was a Teacher for years, I finally got a Swami and find that I am a Warrior today! How many other Type A Secretors are here and can you tell me what is different about the diet? The major difference that popped out at me was the wheat thing - which makes sense to me. I really want to make this work.

Definitely a lot less cheese.  A few other differences, too.  Almost all wheat is neutral for me on my SWAMI.  I could probably go on either diet, as I flip between the two based solely on changing caffeine sensitivity.  I decided to go with Warrior and get back on the caffeine and ditch all the cheese.  The Warrior 3-pack seems to calm me pretty well.  After a cup of morning coffee, I only feel a slight buzz and actually start to mellow out after my oat bran with dates and maple syrup.  I can lose weight easier on the Warrior diet, too.

I just found out I am a Warrior after purchasing the genotype diet book, and working out the clues. It seems to follow that for years of eating red meats and gluten wheat flour having all sorts of gastric problems, increasing weight 100kgs which required huge amounts of sacrifices to return to 80 and reasonable fitness.
My history is 100kg at age 29, then back to 60kg. Fit for life diet worked but then the weight stacked back on again and at age 40. 97kg. Hovered up to 100kg
at Age 50 i discovered that serious exercise and high protein diets can work but gastric problems and feeling blocked up resulted. I tried the A Blood group diet from a friend but did know the full story until reading Eat right for your type last year. my weight began to reduce but also stabilize around 80kg. As the warrior I am introducing different amounts foods and utilising the recipes on this site. of course it is impossible to be compliant at all times but I am resolute

Well Graham, how is your diet coming along? We middle aged Warriors can make quick progress when we focus on more appropriate foods, but a lot of detoxing can occur if we've been eating like Hunters our whole life. Any thoughts along that line?

Hey Averno... I'm not Graham, but for me personally, I'm getting back to near 100% compliance after some November/December pigging out on all the wrong foods.  I lost about 10 pounds in two weeks and currently stabilizing weight-wise.  My current issue is bloating and gas.  I'm taking the Warrior 3-pack and Deflect, but my stomach just seems to not like anything I give it lately.  I'm getting zero exercise (which I'm not proud of) so maybe that would boost my metabolism and help chew through whatever is going on down there.  But, lately, I'm just dreading the idea of exercise.  I hate the germ-ridden, noisy rec center.  Walking outside is miserable.  Walking at the mall is noisy and monotonous.  I'm 6'1" and 250 lbs., so something is going to have to give.  And, being a food lover, even if I'm on my SWAMI, I'm eating too much of it.  Only thing that works for me on weigh-loss is counting those calories and hearing/feeling my stomach growl which I hate as much as the bloating/gas.

Adam, you've described me here as well. A 6'  250 lbs, sedentary foodie (pre BTD).

I think your body is having a hard time dealing with the overeating, even though compliant. The key is to get your gut in balance and your chemistry stabilized. Amazing things begin to happen when glucose, cortisol, etc. adjust to normal levels-- you begin to cruise, the nagging stops and you gain control. Some supps, and getting some exercise will go a long way. Start by parking farther away than necessary, taking the stairs etc.  It feels good.

Two things about really enjoying food:

1- Little cheats can have a big impact. For example, paprika is an avoid for me, and just trying to limit it doesn't work. I end up bloated, sluggish, tired and hungry all the time. Grains do this too.

2- Your body is constantly communicating it's needs. Our response is often to simply eat more, substituting one form of satisfaction for another.




Which brings me to being a foodie on this diet. This is just my opinion.

The great pleasure of preparing and enjoying food is sensual and wonderful. it is also entirely possible to experience this while observing healthy choices. While I no longer indulge in that heady sauce or that sinful dessert, I no longer miss it. The sheer joy of eating food in it's least adulterated state, sometimes really tasting things for the first time, has been a revelation for me. A communion with the physical world that borders on- if not crossing into- spirituality. Less about indulging in eating, more about indulging the senses.

From what I recall of some earlier posts, your preferred tastes are similar to mine: rich, bold, savory. I get that. Dinner tonight is lamb kabobs seasoned with an awesome marinade, and lovely peas on the side. 1 glass of red wine. But gone are the days that accompaniments would include a rich sauce, grains or starches, and half the bottle. Dessert (later) will be a small piece of chocolate with that last sip of red. Sensually Indulgent. Satisfying.

I've learned that a slice of salted, sautéd tofu for breakfast, with a few raisins and pecan or walnut pieces has a beautiful flavor much like the cheese danish I used to enjoy. Lunch may be Wild Planet sardines. Right out of the can and astonishingly good as is. Paired with a few raw broccoli crowns in lemon juice sweetened with a few drops of agave, then finishing with a small handful of blueberries. All in all a geno-harmonic powerhouse with enough fuel until dinnertime. Never mind the mayo, celery, and onions... Forget the sour cream on the blueberries. All just gilding the Lilly.

Maybe one day when you're at a healthy weight and your metabolism is in full swing you'll enjoy the heavy stuff on occasion. I'm betting though, that you'll enjoy eating healthy a lot more.

Averno... I greatly appreciate the time you took to write that.  It's good to find a male Warrior on here that I can relate to.  We seem to be a rarity here.  

I made a conscious decision last night to toss all the wheat in the house, except for spelt.  I had rolls, pita bread, and sliced bread... now all gone.  I'm going to get some Amaranth (which I never eat) tonight and see if I can pop it like popcorn, which I read about today.  I've got some other healthy carbs in the house that I'm just not eating because wheat is so yummy and convenient.  Carbs seem to be my Achilles Heel on my SWAMI.  

I recently made some nice curry powder by toasting the seeds whole and grinding them up and putting it in a spice bottle.  Never did that before and now I'm putting it on everything.  It is a superspice for me.  Cauliflower is a diamond for me and I just couldn't figure out anything to do with it that pleased me, until recently.  I steam it along with some carrots.  Then saute some onion and mushrooms in olive oil or ghee.  Add some ginger/garlic paste, the curry power, some nutritional yeast, lemon juice, a little honey, and a little soy milk.  This makes the most wonderful sauce and is very close to a dish I've found in the past on Indian buffets.  This stuff is highly addicting and a great way for me to get my daily live food requirement.

The ginger/garlic paste I mentioned above is also something I'm doing lately that I've never kept around before.  I puree in a food processor equal amounts of fresh ginger and garlic along with some olive oil.  Then seal it in a glass container and keep it in the fridge for about a week.  Boy do I go through it!  I'm adding it to about everything.  The entire paste is a diamond for me.

Another new thing I'm cooking these days because of the winter is miso soup.  I never really got into it until now.  Miso is a superfood and everything else I add to the soup is either super or diamond... soft tofu, Asian greens, mushrooms, green onions, and ginger/garlic paste.  This is what I have for lunch about every day now.  Very easy and quick to make.  Also surprisingly filling too.  And that daily soy intake is supposed to be medicine for us Warriors.

If I just stay on track and quit freakin' cheating here and there, I'll get over the hump and do fine.  Usually after about 30 days of near 100% compliance does the trick, but there's always a transition period with me.  I can't seem to stop cold turkey on the bad stuff, because of that mentality "You only live once, go on and treat yourself."  But all that treating adds up and messes with me, so I gotta focus and do what's right for my health's sake.  

One obvious thing I'm noticing, which happens every time I get back on 100% compliance, is the skin on my fingers clear up.  Every darn time I get on the Cheat Train, I get these red inflammation sores all over my fingers.  It drives me nuts.  And, then after about a month of 100% compliance, the inflammation completely disappears.  Then, in my mind I go "Ok, you're all better now, time to cheat" which I wish I'd quit doing, as it is a nasty cycle of heal-cheat-heal-cheat-etc. that I know is not doing me any good.

I'm guessing that what you see on your fingers is also in your gut. Probably from grains. Might want to monitor the spelt reactions, too. It's a diamond for me, but I can't handle it.

If your tofu intake is limited to just a few soft cubes in miso, try it as I've described. It's by no means "yummy", but it's not bad and really energizes. Other times I'll spread miso on it. On-the-go food.

Nut butters really kill my carb appetite. Spread it on anything.

I can't emphasize enough, though, how overeating stresses the body. Even diamond foods. Think of yourself at a reasonable weight, and the amount of healthy food that's needed to sustain you there. More than that amount stresses the organs to the point of disfunction. Keeping in that mode will certainly lead to a lot of discomfort, and eventually disease. You won't know how good you can feel until you come down the other side of the mountain.

Hello! I'm new here. English is not my native language, so I apologize for mistakes in advance.

I red book "The GenoType Diet". My blood type is A+. I think I'm warrior.

I'm 29 years old. I was skinny as a child. I have 10 kg overweight now.
I have digestive problems, convulsions, constipation....hormonal disbalance...
abdominal fatty tissue... I had candida infection.

Other symptoms: Early aging, stress overload....

I do not eat wheat & sugars & industrial products since 2012.

I tried low carb diet (LCHF) & anticandida diet... but  nothing helped me.

Solution was BICOM therapy. Bioresonance therapy

I had intolerance on lot's of foods, mostly vegetables and fruits.



After 9 months of BICOM therapy, things get better.

I eat fruits till noon (healthy sugars which helps me with alkaline acid balance) and vegetables after noon + seeds, nuts, oils or cheese. I also tried to eat mostly raw food, but it is hard, because genotype diet has lot's of restrictions.

I'm still looking for right diet/food for me.


I'm confused with all kinds of "diet", becase I still have digestive problems, no matter what "diet" I implement


I want to follow Genotyp diet - Warrior.

I have some questions, because I'm not sure is it allowed to eat this NEUTRAL food (are they neutral?):

30) RED WINE

31) KOMBUCHA

32) STEVIA

33) ARUGULA

34) lambs lettuce

35) COCOA BUTTER? COCOA POWDER? Chocolate is marked as diamond.


Furthermore, about NOT ALLOWED food. Is it realy toxic if I eat that food sometimes (once a month or rarely):

1) chicken & chicken liver - local farming

2) pork, bacon, ham...-local farming

3) lamb

4) duck

Hi, and welcome.  

Sounds like you are really getting into the Genotype diet.  That is great.  I would strongly suggest you go further and get a SWAMI, which is a more personalized diet program:

http://www.dadamo.com/media/swami.htm

Then you can reap the benefits of Dr. D's up-to-the-minute knowledge and research that is programmed into it, and apply it directly to you.  The Genotype diet book is getting dated, and although is will work fairly well for any Warrior, if you want optimum benefit, I'd suggest getting a SWAMI.  You may also want to look for a local practitioner to measure you and obtain a professional SWAMI:

http://www.generativemedicine.org/ifhi/memberlist.pl

No one can really comment on your foods, because you are an individual and a SWAMI report will tell you specifically what you should and should not eat.  However, I can certainly say that you should not eat white potatoes.  Now, a sweet potato, maybe, but you'd have to run a SWAMI to make sure.  These other items I'd be cautious about eating:  

veal
hare
YOGURTH
CREAM
sour cream
paprika
tomato
eggplant
cabbage

Be careful of dairy.  I'd suggest only Kefir and Ghee, and stay away from cheese altogether for at least 3 months.  During that time, get a SWAMI and determine what dairy is good for you.

Also, I'd strongly suggest you get your secretor status checked:

Adam, thank you very much
I red on the first page about "muscle testing"? What' that?
Are you familiar about BICOM testing and BICOM therapy?

Bioresonance therapy: http://www.behealthy.net.au/what-we-do/bicom-therapy

It helped me with:
- food intolerances (I was intolerante on planty of fruits and vegetables, and other food (meat, sugar, wheat, spices etc... ))
- candida

I bealive (actually I'm sure) that BICOM test on precise food is correct.
It shows if some food is:
- BAD for me, makes damage in my body.
- NEUTRAL (doesn't make damage, but also doesn't have any beneficial)
- is GOOD for me, like diamonds in Genotyp diet.

I eat food which I'm allowed by BICOM diagnostic.
I'm allowed to eat almost 95% od all food, after 9 months of therapy.

BUT, due to new informations, I'm constantly reducing number of ingredients/foodstuffs.

I implement LCHF (low carb high fat) & anticandida diet for 2 years.
It was very acid diet for me, because I couldn't eat vegetables and fruits due to hard intolerancy.
When I ate some fruit/vegetable (or other food that I had intolerance on it), I had pain, digestive problems, convulsions immediately.
I ate meat, cheese, kefir, butter, eggs, fats/oils.
It was good for me because I didn' t have PAIN, but I had toughly candida problems.
Now I know what was the problem; acid body.

Candida was the reason why I started with BICOM therapy.

NOW, I'm trying to keep alkaline acid balance.

I red Norman Walkers books about RAW FOOD.
I also red FIT FOR LIFE.
I analyzed Ayurveda.
I observe right food combination for digestion.
Do not mix carbs and proteins, fruit only on empty stomach, do not mix 2 types of protein (meat, eggs, cheese)

I'm reading Macrobiotics books now.

And I'm trying to follow Genotype diet - warrior.

I'm not sure if SWAMI will give me better instructions than BICOM diagnostic does.

Anyhow I'm allowed to eat meat (chicken, pork) and dairy (cheese, sour) by BICOM, I'm avoiding it due to alkaline acid balance.

On the other hand, Pummelo and brussels-sprouts is GOOD for warriors, but I avoid them because they are BAD for me by BICOM test.

I'm aware that health starts in healthy gut.

Improper/unmatched food and STRESS (I can't emphasis enough impact of STRESS) cause candida.
Candida causes LEAKY GUT.
LEAKY GUT = PROBLEMS

Therefore I eat:
- fruits (alkaline) - but just WARRIOR allowed (good and neutral) and BICOM good.
- vegetables (alkaline)- but just WARRIOR allowed (good and neutral) and BICOM good
- spices (alkaline))- but just WARRIOR allowed (good and neutral) and BICOM good
- KEFIR (dairy, acid) but it is PROBIOTIC
- KOMBUCHA tea (warrior neutral, but BICOM says BENEFITIALS)
- GARLIC, ONION
- extra virgin olive oil (FAT instead of CARBS)

I'm trying to reduce acid food: fish, meat and cheese. But I eat chicken, pork and fresh cheese sometimes. Probably I should reduce it at all. Maybe TURKEY MEAT sometimes? BICOM says OK, Warrior is neutral.
CHICKEN and PORK are forbidden for warriors, but my BICOM says OK.

SOUP BONES are very good for LEAKY GUT.
What do you think, will chicken soup bones be beneficial for me & my gut?

Adam, you say " NO white Potato". Ok, I also think that is too much carb in potato. But BICOM says OK.

Ironical, I ate white POTATO entire my life! I was skinny! I didn't like meat, vegetables, soups, salats... About age 20 I've started eating meat, vegetables, rice, pasta... And I get fat...

I never notice pain after eating potato.

Uff, it's very complexed.

Generally, it's OK for me not to eat
veal
hare
YOGURTH industrial

I'm littlebit sad   about not allowed:

CREAM
sour cream
paprika
tomato
eggplant
cabbage
but if avoiding this will make me healthy, it's not problem  

Thank you  once again

To any Warriors out there struggling with their bodies wanting to hang onto every single calorie they consume, I wanted to share with you what seems to be working for me.  I've been recently trying to lose weight.  Been doing well, except recently it just wasn't going any lower.  

So, I did a bit of an experiment these past few days.  First few weeks of the month, I was just eating whatever amounts I wanted from the superfoods on my SWAMI, with just a few neutrals here and there, no avoids.  If it was a diamond, I especially didn't care about the amounts.  I just wanted to heal from the holidays when I fell off the wagon and ate many avoids, and subsequently gained a lot of weight and got ill.

Now, for the past few days, I changed it up.  Since I've been feeling better health-wise, but the weight wasn't coming off, I decided to shift into weight-loss mode.  What always worked for me in the past was simple calorie-counting.  So, these past few days, I've watched my calories like a hawk, and really stepped up my live foods intake.  My main guidelines have been this:
  • Limit of 1300-1400 calories per day
  • Limit of fat to 10-12% of total calories per day
  • Minimum of 6 cups of live foods per day
  • Take the Warrior 3-pack twice a day
  • Drink plenty of water
That's basically it in terms of diet requirements, in addition to maintaining strict SWAMI-compliance and emphasizing the superfoods.  I did not exercise at all, but simply watched my fat and calorie intake.  I wasn't really hungry, felt a hunger pang only once right before lunch one day.  Definitely cut out the "boredom eating" especially during TV watching which was really sabotaging my weight-loss plans.

In these past few days, yes only a few days, I dropped 3 pounds.  Went from 247, a weight that would not budge for the first 3 weeks of February, down to 244 this morning.  It is really amazing!  

Another thing I've done, which will surprise many, is that I've cut out tofu and miso, and now only get my soy via soymilk (1 cup per day).  I noticed that in order to enjoy tofu, I had to add a lot of miso or tamari to it in order to give it the flavor I wanted.  I could use other spices, like a curried tofu, but that just doesn't sound all that good to me.  Anyway, I think all that sodium was impairing my weight-loss as well.

Carbs also were an issue with me, as I had a tendency to go with wheat which is all in the neutral column.  Now, all of the carbs I'm consuming are coming from the superfood column, mainly flax bread, flax crackers, and basmati rice.  

Also, I'm limiting sweetener to about a teaspoon a day.  And I've completely eliminated dairy, except for once a week, where I'm going to use 1 1/2 teaspoons of ghee, which according to my SWAMI would complete my weekly dairy requirements.

I hope this information helps another Warrior out there.  I know there's not very many of us on the board, but just wanted to share anyway.

Just wanted to say that my husband, a 70 year old Warrior nonnie lost weight very quickly just by
giving up wheat and dairy.  He eats spelt and brown rice...and has replaced all wheat with those two
grains.  He eats a lot of ghee/olive oil but eats it on days he has eggs....2 eggs 3x a week for breakfast cooked in ghee and EVOO.........lunches he brings to work are in rotation... tuna salad, turkey and peanut butter/lingonberry jam on spelt bread.  Snacks are nuts and dried or fresh fruit.  Other days for breakfast he has granola with a cup of mixed berries and almond milk.  Starts with 1/2 grapefruit every day.... Drinks green tea 2x a day.  Using Membrosia complex with either grape juice or a mixture of grapefruit/pineapple juice.  He tends to be a starch lover but it doesn't impact his weight even slightly. Often has a large bowl or brown rice pasta with vegetables/tomato sauce for dinner....along with a salad and soup with beans.  

Given I'm the person overseeing his diet....I just wanted to share his success following it.  He doesn't
seem to walk around hungry....has a ton of energy...never really tired. I'm aware that Warriors have
issues with weight....just saying that my husband's weight dropped right off just getting rid  of dairy and wheat.

Adam, bravo! You've embraced a really clean Warrior diet here. I predict that by winning the war of willpower against those hunger urges (hint: they're lies. Ignore them and they'll go away...) you'll find yourself compelled to healthy eating all of the time.
