I decided to create a better thread for the Warriors as the other one was created for a different reason.
This thread is a Warrior Support Thread for us and anyone who'd like to offer guidance for us.  

So, I made split pea soup yesterday. I soaked them overnigight and after an hour, I still had some hard pieces!    Really annoying. I just bought them the other day. Some store brand.  I knew I should have gotten Goya, oh boy a.   I even put a piece of kombu in it! Do you believe it?!     But even though there were some hard pieces, I puree'd it and it was better. I had  leeks, carrots, onion, garlic, bay leaf, turmeric, ginger and barley miso!  The miso kicked it up a notch!  A real Warrior stoup.  I like it thick. May not sound great but it tasted really good.

The other day I bought some rice/spelt crackers and today I brought them to work with me with some goat cheese for lunch... It's a good thing I only brought three crackers otherwise I would have eaten the whole pack. They are delicious!!!

And yesterday I had lamb with wild spinach for dinner... Another yummy!

Lentil soup is good. I've always liked beans..My favorite is black bean soup and split pea soup. I have a lemony lentil recipe that's really good. It has slices of lemon in it..

The only beneficial food that I have tried that I just can't eat has been Tofu.  There were some suggestions to use tempeh, but the body just hasn't wanted it whenever I have tested it at the store.  I eat pinto beans, peanuts, and lentils, so maybe I'm getting enough bean protein to not need it.  I also haven't done SWAMI, yet, so the rating may change, but I doubt it...

Mayflowers, I researched snails and couldn't find the beneficial kind that didn't have questionable ingredients, so I just take the Helix supplement...  Makes the decision easy - even though I liked the snail I ate when in college...
The split pea soup sounds really good.  I have been thinking that it would be good to start a pot soon...

I eat about two servings of vegetables per day now and I know that per the portion guidelines, I should be eating more, but I just don't seem to tolerate more well.  Maybe they, like too much exercise, cause too much detox...

I am slowly getting better, as my supplement usage has dropped considerably and there are areas of the body that don't hurt near as much as they have in the past, so the body is healing.  It sometimes takes a long time to clean and rebuild everything, in spite of the desire to have it done yesterday.

Wow I want some of that soup!!! I love it!!!

I bought a bunch of cans of black beans and I keep planning on making soup with it, I just haven't gotten around to it yet. Maybe tonight!

I have a can of snails in the cupboard. I just can't bring myself to even open them. lol I keep seeing the trails they leave on the cement in my mind! haha

Yes! Yes! Dr.D said that when I went to see him. He mentioned that after awhile, I'd need less and less supplements as my body balances out. I noticed that too. I'm taking less supplements and having less reactions to things now.     I had the same thought about taking helix...snail in a capsule.  I wouldn't have to think about it.  Maybe I'll try it.  

Joe, you can try adding some tofu to your smoothie, maybe that would cover up the taste.   I made a kefir smoothie at lunch time. I use regular soy powder. The NAP powder has rice in it and I don't do well on rice.

Just use a cup of split peas, and soak them over night because they'll cook faster, other wise it would take 3 hours to cook them.  Just chop up the veggies and cook them in the pot with a piece of kombu (kelp another beneficial for me) and a bay leaf. The kombu is supposed to make them cook faster. Adds iodine also. At the end, I added a good heaping teaspoon of miso mixed with some soup from the pot, pour it back in and turn off the heat. Never boil miso.

I think snails are cute. That's my problem with eating them.  Cute little stalks for eyes....  Even slugs with no shell are cute.

Joe, my dad was AB+ and he had gout.  An AB eating too much meat..    He ate like a B or an O diet.

I eat lentils a lot. On my SWAMI they're only neutral, but sprouted lentils are beneficial.  So I put some on today to sprout.  We'll see how it goes.

I muscle tested it...

Joe, my dad was AB+ and he had gout.  An AB eating too much meat..    He ate like a B or an O diet.

I've had gout symptoms, also.  My pre-BTD diet was too much meat (beef, chicken, pork), corn and potatoes...

It hasn't been the flavor that bothers me.  I don't like to vomit it...


I made a pot of split pea / lentil soup today.  I used:
1 C. ea lentils and split peas
3 carrots
1 onion
7 C. water.

Put it all in the pan and simmered it for about 2 hours.

This morning I feel like making a big pot of black bean soup for the day! I have noticed that I'm starting to eat a lot more things that I wouldn't have ever thought of eating as breakfast foods when it comes to breakfast. But I feel fantastic!!!

Last night I had a salmon sandwich on rye with soy mayo and had some yerba mate ice tea. I slept like a baby! The first full 8 hours I've had in over a month! Wow, I feel good! Woke up at 5am this morning and actually feel like doing something with my day!

The thing about chocolate is that it's meant to be eaten as more of a condiment. That goes for everyone that can eat it. I have found that I have to be careful of the brand and the higher % of the chocolate that is in it the better. I found a really good one that also had sea salt in it. Sad to say though that it was just so overly sweet that it felt far from being a "super food" for me. Hopefully I can find chocolate that isn't so full of dairy of sugar!

So, it's the texture you don't like? ..

Try putting the miso in the split pea soup..it really enhances the flavor and doesn't really add any of it's own. You'll get the benfits of soy then.

Leanne do you sprout regular store bought beans or do you buy organic ones?  We tried sprouting back in the 70's ..the seeds used to get rancid on us.  I'd really love to start sprouting again..

Black bean soup..Mmmmm one of my favorites.  I had a recipe for Brazilian Black Bean that had orange juice in it. Then you'd serve it with marinated rice (marinated in vinegar)
I had to change the recipe to pineapple or apple juice and lemon juice..

Mayflowers, It's great to have a Warrior thread. Thanks for starting it. Here's my food list for today:

Breakfast:

3 scrambled eggs cooked in ghee over Suzie's thin rice cakes with a layer of farmer's cheese. I finally found a store that carries farmer's cheese and I'm loving it. Never had it before because I couldn't find it in stores.

Snack:

Lots of watermelon with some Ricotta Cheese


Lunch:

Skinless and Boneless Sardines mashed with sour cream (neutral) over Suzie's thin Rice Cakes. One Rice cake with peanut butter and cucumber slices.

Snack:
Plums and a teaspoon of peanut butter

Dinner:
Brown Rice vegetable stir fry with one egg, onion, garlic, cauliflower, and celery.

I'm with you, Mayflowers, I won't even try snails. Another one I won't try is sardines. All those years of working in pizza restaurants turned me off to tinned small fish with bones. I can't even eat tinned salmon, and especially not tinned salmon with skin and bones. Not sure I'll ever get over that one.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

I doubt that it is the texture...  I think the tofu doesn't digest well.  It'll sit for half hour to two hours then report back.  One of these days, I'll get the gut healed enough to be able to handle it...

The black bean soup was soooo good! Actually it was too good. lol Felt a bit like it cleaned out my system so well that my metabolism has been so good that I had to eat some grains for the rest of the day to feel "full". I am constantly hungry but not in the mood to eat or make anything. haha I never thought I'd complain about my metabolism being "too" fast! lol

I'm constantly hungry too chris...Is that a Warrior thing?  
Sharon, nice menu.  I hate rice cakes though.   It's like eating styrofoam.  I don't have to eat sardines. They're only a neutral for me thank goodness right Drea?  
Joe, I found lately..and I don't know if it will last, that food combining is helping.  If I eat fish or turkey I don't have starch with it. I try to have fruit alone and I have my starches separately. When I combine meat and bread, I get acid reflux..pressure..pain. I'm getting checked for pylori soon and gluten intolerance by blood work. I'm also getting a complete serotyping panel to see my blood sub stuff..the MM or NN or whatever and the secretor.  If' it's pylori, then food combining won't help. I mean I get burning..
Also getting the vitamin D levels checked.  
Today I made a good smoothie.. Kefir, soy powder, ground flax, lecithin, cocoa powder, vanilla, frozen mixed berries and black berries..with two packets of stevia. Very tasty. I had that with almond butter on whole wheat.

Being constantly hungry a Warrior thing? I'm not sure. I hope for that it's just a pregnant thing. lol
My metabolism seems to be faster than it ever has in my entire life and I didn't know my correct blood type or my geneotype until after I was pregnant already. So really I'm not sure how I'll feel being not pregnant and following this diet. The only thing I can think is... THAT MUCH MORE AMAZING! lol
Yep, don't know about the hungry all the  time bit or not.

I can't get into eating rice cakes either. Not a fan of sardines. I must say though the artichoke I had today was a take it or leave it experience. I sprayed some braggs amino acid on it for flavor after I steamed it. But really I didn't enjoy it or anything.

Feeling like it's time for a nap but also like I should shower and get out of the house. I think the nap will win though.

Thanks for the tip mrstwobears.    

I ordered some powdered kelp, spiralina and barley powder for my green smoothies. I use raw spinach and or beet greens, sometimes kale.. in the vitamix.  I'm looking forward to a nice green smoothie today.  I add some frozen berries for flavor.  I just can't seem to mix the protein smoothies with the greens..it tastes weird.

I've always had to eat frequently and usually more than others...  After I first started the diet, it seemed like I was able to eat less, but that may have only been while I was losing the extra weight...  Now, my metabolism is definitely on high and I can eat almost constantly, but I try to limit it to "mealtimes".  Sometimes I need to have 5 meals in the day!

c**p! lol There's goes my "only because I'm pregnant" hope. Well I guess I'll just have to get used to eating more often. When I do eat though I don't feel like eating a lot. Portion control is just naturally getting better without any conscious efforts on my part. YAY!
I'll have to keep everyone updated on how quickly the extra weight comes off after I have my son. Should be fun to see what happens! I'm exciting already!

Small meals are healthier than 3 large ones, and easier on the digestion.  I always ate like that when I was younger.  I'm trying to get back to that. It makes the metabolism faster. I do seem to have more energy when I eat smaller frequent meals.

How similar we are one Tribe.

I am less ravenous then I once was.
Ordered my first case of sardines for my family, they said they would eat them. They are boneless and skinless

I don't mind them, I am a taster, how about everyone else?

taster too here, not warrior though, but I definitely don t mind skin and bones....
NPI......

make sardine salad like you would tuna....chop all veggies up add whatever you normally add to make it creamy...like tofu or an egg for those not eating tofu....remember mayo is in fact oil and egg.....

Like I said previously, sardines are not a beneficial for me. Anchovies on the other hand are. I like them on pizza...now white pizza.

Sardines are a superfood for me on my Swami and I eat a can in water drained almost everyday. Sometimes I put lots of chopped celery, onion, olive oil, lemon, and a pinch of kelp or turmeric. Some days I put a spoonful of sour cream or yogurt and mix it all together or make my own mayo like Lola mentioned, just olive oil and egg. The sardines help keep my mood level.

My Swami says Sardines are geno harmonic with these foods:

Black tea
Broccoli Raab, Rapini
Celeriac
Cranberry juice
Endive
Hearts of Palm
Green leaf lettuce, iceberg
Mamey Sapote
Oyster mushrooms
Squash
Watercress
Watermelon seeds (anyone know where I can get this? is this the black seeds from watermelons?)

Sounds like the GenoHarmonic combinations would make SWAMI worthwhile, but I just don't know how I would tolerate more detox...  I'm having a hard time doing much with the discomfort and need for rest.  I wish Sevin insecticide had never been invented!

I'm working on a recipe Joe. I'll post it soon.  Sharon...I'm glad you like sardines...I'll eat them once in awhile..but I don't like em. I think you get more fish than me because you're an AB...  

Lola, the seedless watermelon has seeds in it..tiny ones. So you get the benfits of the seeds when you eat that.  Watermelon is a neutral for me..I don't eat it very often.  I used to love it as a kid but I got sick of it as  I got older.

Mayflowers, I just looked at my Swami and it says only 3 fish servings/week. I don't eat any other fish except the occasional wild salmon when it's in season. I'm going to start to pay more attention to the serving suggestions. I'm a very hungry Warrior so servings and portion conrol are hard for me.

Leanne do you sprout regular store bought beans or do you buy organic ones?  We tried sprouting back in the 70's ..the seeds used to get rancid on us.  I'd really love to start sprouting again..


Well, I checked them this morning because I've been.....uh...tied up, you might say, and they're sprouted!  No mold, which is what I thought might happen.  They taste like dirt, but if they're good for me, I'll eat them.  I watered them again and tomorrow I might put them in the fridge so they don't try to make leaves or anything.  The sprout part is about half an inch long.

WOWZERS! I FEEL SO GOOOOOOOD! I found blackberry juice today and after my shopping I was exhausted and cranky. I am drinking blackberry juice right now and feel FANTASTIC!!!

Question: What does "blocks polyamine synthesis or lowers indican levels" means? Cause that's what blackberries and blackberry juice does for us that it's highly beneficial for.

Hmm. I guess a Warrior is a Warrior is a Warrior.. I would have thought you got a little more meat than me because of the B-ness.  Do you get lamb?  I can have veal once a week if I want. I can also have duck, cornish hen, (black dots) emu, caribou, kangaroo...

My only meats are lamb, mutton, and rabbit and they're all neutral. The serving is 1/week. My superfood poultry is turkey 1/week. I think the B in me gives me a lot of beneficial dairy- 5 servings weekly and my superfoods are:

cottage cheese
farmer cheese
ghee
kefir
paneer
Quark
Whey
Yogurt

Neutrals:
Feta Cheese
Manchego
Milk, Goat
Mozzarella
Ricotta cheese
sour cream


Mayflowers, is my dairy list similar to your dairy list?

If you have a superfood, it's gotta be more than once a week. Diamonds should be eaten daily.
You have more meat and more cheese than I do.  I have paneer, cottage and farmer.  that's it. All the other cheeses are black dots.

Awesome! Thanks! So really drinking blackberry juice is going to speed up my metabolism... YAY! and just do overall really healthy stuff for me! AWESOME! Well I do feel fantastic this morning. At 15 dollars a bottle I'm not too stressed by the cost of it. Could be worse. At least I finally found a good source.

christaalyssaA+, My mom is a B Nomad. Do you know what your AB mom's genotype is or what your mom's mom (your grandmother) blood type is? My beneficial dairy works well for me and doesn't give me mucus but red meat slows my digestion. I do eat lamb occasionally 1/week. Maybe the fact that I spent 9 months in the womb with a dairy tolerant B gives me an increased tolerance for dairy than an AB who had an A mother? I'm trying to learn more info about relationships between mother and child's blood type. Shelly, another AB, on this forum has an A mom and can't tolerate dairy very well. Maybe I'll make a poll.

I'm still trying to figure out if my mom was a Warrior also..or an Explorer. She was right handed..but she loved red meat. I mean "chewing on the bones" loved red meat. She was A+ like me but only 5'1"
She had a weight problem when she got out of her twenties. She was heavy..which of course led her to get interested in health and nutrition.  I don't think she was a Teacher because she had weight issues and Teachers usually don't (right?)  But she had a quick, short temper... Maybe she was a Warrior...

I don't know that I agree with this statement!  If I understand the comment correctly, this response is to a statement that turkey (a superfood) was being eaten 1 time per week.  The question comes in then - does this statement mean that turkey should be eaten everyday? or that superfoods in general should be eaten everyday?

As a Warrior, the emphasis should be on vegetable proteins, therefore, the meat frequency is very light...  It is my understanding that while turkey is a superfood for Sharon, she should still only eat it one portion per week and the rest of her protein needs should be from other sources (fish, eggs, nuts, and beans)...

I do agree that in general, diamonds and superfoods should be emphasized in the diet, but I think the frequencies apply to them as well.

Am I not understanding this correctly?

Hi Joe,
I probably should have stated that the frequency portions should be followed on your own individual SWAMI but the Diamond foods, "Are exempt from the portion and frequency guide" They are great metabolic activators. "If you are not interested in rapid weight loss, you can eat as much as desired of these foods"    So if turkey has a diamond next to it, then unless you're trying to lose weight, you can eat as much of it as you desire.

I get what your saying about as a Warrior we should concentrate on vegetables..but the diet is synergistic. All of the beneficial foods  listed are beneficial for you. Turkey for me is a neutral. I have 0-2 servings a week. But Dr. D finds fish is beneificial for us so really all vegetables and fruits isn't totally healthy for a Warrior. If it were, he'd have us vegans.

After two nights out late (Thursday and Friday) last week, and busy Saturday and Sunday, I finally got an early night last night to catch up on some sleep.  I don't feel like quite the zombie I did at times...  In spite of eating out three times over 4 days, I was able to eat mostly compliant, so the rest was most of the requirement to feel better.  I'll still need to get a couple more early nights to completely recharge, but I am happy with the rebound so far.

At a luncheon banquet yesterday, Beef and Chicken fajitas were served, with sides of refried beans and rice and condiment were tomato salsa, guacamole, sour cream, etc...  I waited until last to get my plate so I could pick some onions out of the beef, get refried beans and rice and top it with sour cream.  Couldn't pick onions out of the chicken due to the lectins...  It was a reasonably compliant meal in spite of how it sounded going in...  

I had tuna salad - made with yogurt, garlic, and Italian seasoning on two rice cakes with a large portion of peas for dinner.

As I've mentioned before, I haven't eaten meat since I watched the movie Food, Inc. And I've not missed it! I thought I might, because I used to eat a fair amount of turkey (even though it was neutral). I'm doing great on beans and compliant cheeses, and seeds and nuts for my protein. I try to eat as many greens as I can; I seem to crave them, especially in the warmer months. So on that note, for lunch I'm eating a large salad of arugula, broccoli stems with a few carrots for color, great northern beans, feta cheese, evoo, and ume boshi vinegar. So good.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Hi all!  I have been on BTD for about a month and have lost  10 pounds or so.  I recently bought the Genotype diet book to see what the difference was.  If I did it correctly I am a warrior.  My blood type is A+.  Anyway I noticed that there were some additions to foods like tomatoes that a warrior can have but shouldn't be had on BTD.  This made me pretty happy even if they are limited because I have missed my tomatoes!  

I have been looking through a couple of cook books that I have and found a couple of recipes that have beneficial items in them but call for buttermilk.  I am wondering if any of you know of a substitute for buttermilk.  The one recipe that I am looking at specifically already has tofu, lemon juice, salt, dry mustard, cayenne and olive oil but calls for 1/4 c. buttermilk and the recipe is for light mayo.  Any suggestions on a substitute would be greatly appreciated.

Blessings,
Sage

Lentil soup is good. I've always liked beans..My favorite is black bean soup and split pea soup. I have a lemony lentil recipe that's really good. It has slices of lemon in it..

Care to share that recipe Mayflowers?  A recipe that incorporates both lentil and lemon sounds like delicious medicine straight from Mother Earth to my ears or, ummm, stomach.  

I just recently discovered Lentils despite using beans as my main source of protein for many years now.  I was really disappointed to learn that kidney beans were avoids.  However, I quickly got over the separation anxiety upon my discovery of lentils.  Although they taste nothing like kidney beans they certainly don't give me that miserable feeling which I used to think was satiation.

try sprouting the lentils or any legume in your list, before cooking......3 to 4 days after soaking all night in a colander, keep them covered with cloth and rinse them twice daily......feel the goodness!

Care to share that recipe Mayflowers?  A recipe that incorporates both lentil and lemon sounds like delicious medicine straight from Mother Earth to my ears or, ummm, stomach.  


Hi Rob,
Sure. No problem! I'm at work so when I get home I'll get the cook book out that has it. It calls for home made vegetable stock also!! yummo.  

As far as kidney beans, you can have the white kidney beans instead. Those are ok to eat.

I've decided to introduce a new beneficial from my Swami every week. This week I started eating pinto beans mashed with farmer's cheese. It's like a healthy pintos and cheese alternative.

Andrea, do you partake of dairy or do you choose to avoid it?  I was allergic to dairy and then out grew it..

Doesn't sound like a true allergy. We are lactose intolerant as A's it may not be full blown like some people but it is B and we are A. Bad blood transfusion for us.


I eat yogurt  or kefir every day  probably more then I should but my weight is stable for now so I feel it is ok. Very rarely will I eat goat cheese. If I eat any cheese it is usually  a small piece like at work, they had some brie that no one was eating so I had a piece .
I also try and keep in mind my sister tribe of Teacher and eat something from her list .  Ah to have been a B... how my life would be different.


My reaction to milk products and some avoids is that I get a bottom rash/ chaffing.. sort of embarrassing,  it must make bad bacteria grow in me. It goes away quickly.

When I was a baby, my mother said she had to boil milk and mix a formula for me because I was allergic to regular cow's milk. Some how boiling it ..changed the protein so I could digest it..?
But I had chronic D up until I was 7 years old and my mother ...God rest her soul, didn't realize it was a milk allergy and tried everything to get it to stop..all the time giving me milk every day on cereal  . I finally out grew the D part but I continued to have a stuffed up nose till I was 14. I didn't have any problems with dairy after that until maybe M and now when I eat cheese, my nose stuffs up for an hour or so after I eat it. Like my allergy is coming back again.  

I don't drink cow's milk. Since I started the GTD, I drink soy or almond milk. I never liked cow's milk to drink.  I love soy milk.. I can tolerate yogurt. It doesn't seem to stuff up my nose.   The odd thing is that I went off dairy while I've been sick with the bronchitis/cold and the last few days, my anxiety is flaring up.    .  I was going to try to stay off dairy but what can I eat to keep up the calcium?  My body notices the difference between dairy calcium and calcium added to fortify soy milk.

My recommendation is to drink or use bone broth in soups, or for cooking brown rice or beans... I usually cook the turkey carcass with some lemon juice to help pull calcium out of the bones.

I have been eating pinto beans, brussels sprouts, garlic and/or curry powder, and cottage cheese.  I usually don't bother to mash them, since I am using canned beans that are pretty soft already.

Thanks, Lola! I got the idea from the recent "bean" thread and from a comment you made about combining beans and how to make complete proteins. Adding a new beneficial everyday and combining them together with other beneficials or a genoharmonic combination is so much fun!

Thanks Joe. I'm definitely going to try doing that with turkey. That would make a great stock.
It appears the only dairy that doesn't stuff up my nose is yogurt.  I made a smoothie today..I used soy milk, plain yogurt, lecithin, ground flax seed, stevia and frozen blackberries/blueberries. plus 3 scoops of soy protein powder.  In the vitamix. It was tasty.

Wow! Had the yummiest meal tonight!

Spinach, Artichoke and Mushroom Pasta

1 pkg rice noodles
1 can artichokes
sautéed onions
sliced mushrooms
fresh spinach
ghee or walnut oil

I shredded some soy cheese on it. The nicely cooked spinach with the mushrooms and artichokes and pasta... It's such a shame I was the only one enjoying it!

Here's a recipe for a fast green smoothie:

Start with Iced green tea then add, frozen blackberries (unsweetened of course) I then added
Lecithin, Harmonia, Green Magma (barley sprout powder), powdered kelp for that iodine we need, and ground flax seed.  I usually also add fresh spinach but I was out.. Plus I add one or 2 pkts of stevia.. Whirl in the vitamix and serve. It's icy cold from the frozen blackberries!

I don't eat a lot of dairy, either, but get my calcium from the loads of leafy green veggies I eat. I've been told that vegetable calcium is actually better assimilated into the body than dairy calcium and that the Dairy Board is just spouting propaganda when they say otherwise. (Read Marketing Ploy).

Here's another: On the back of the Nutella jar there is a statement that says...a glass of orange juice, a slice of toast with nutella, and a glass of milk is a healthy balanced breakfast...or something to that effect.



It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

I don't eat fish very well. I'm trying though.

Can anyone suggest a bread? I ate two slices of Quinoa bread
this morning and it almost put me to sleep. Maybe the wheat/gluten
in it? It's not an avoid on my list, but maybe my body doesn't like it.
First time I've tried it.

Otherwise eat a berry/yogurt/soy milk/lecithin/chocolate chip smoothie
with a spoon for breakfast....almost addicted to it. I'm not sure
I can have yogurt EVERY morning, but I'm doing the best I can.

This is a good thread - thanks Mayflowers!

We have determined that we just can't eat any wheat for the present at our house.  We still do spelt muffins and seem to be OK with them, but not every day.

I don't eat a loaf bread anymore...  
I use rice cakes with ghee and peanut butter or sardines.  I even had a turkey burger open-face on a rice cake, although you have to eat over a plate to catch the falling rice bits...
I make rye, oatmeal and flax pancakes and eat with fruit and maple syrup.  Leftover, they can be used in place of slices of bread.

I know there is a Flax Focaccia bread recipe in the data base here that many people like...

I use thin rice cakes for "bread". In the morning sometimes I like to make an egg and cheese " rice cake sandwich". Farmer cheese is a beneficial for me so I usually make it with farmer cheese (beneficial) or manchego cheese (neutral).

It's a bene for me, too. I think it makes me tired though.
I think I'll avoid for 60 days and see what happens.

Mayflowers: what kind of whole wheat toast do you use?
I really don't mind the rice cakes, but once in a while
it's easier to have bread (like for a turkey burger

Hi,
  You can't have wheat? I have whole wheat bread that I buy with no HFC in it. I also make spelt bread in my bread machine and I'll make spelt biscuits sometimes. Spelt is a lot easier to digest than regular wheat.  That's why wheat is so good for us A's.. The sleepy affect is good for keeping our stress down..which we need to do. I always feel more strung out when I don't have wheat.. But Dr. D said wheat causes us to also gain weight so we need to not eat tons...like I did the other day. I bought  a loaf of rye bread and it was soooo tasty.. I had a few slices...

I just melted some dark chocolate with ghee in a saucepan,
and poured it over a rice cake then sprinkled with chopped pecans!
Very tasty and geno harmonic!

I'm thinking of making a bunch and sticking them in the freezer.

Mayflowers - I read somewhere that making the spelt bread
in the machine was hard unless there was a "gluten free" setting?
Something about over kneading the dough?
Which recipe do you use (if you don't mind sharing).

I used the whole wheat setting, 4 hours, I also used the light crust setting. then I used a gluten free recipe and sub'ed spelt flour. I can't find the bleeping recipe. I've been looking for it. grrr. I figured out by adding an egg to it, that it lightened it up and it rose a lot higher. I didn't end up with a brick like one most often gets with whole wheat.  It came out like a regular loaf of bread.  I wanted to make another loaf and I can't remember what I did with the recipe..senior moment..or blonde..

You just can't throw the ingredients in and walk away. You have to stand there and help scrape it off the sides to help it mix it, and maybe add more flour or water ..depending on how dry the flour is.

We have used 3 to 4 times the amount of Lime juice (frozen, juiced from fresh limes) to replace the Cream of Tartar in recipes calling for baking powder...  Works really well.  We have eliminated the sharp taste that Cream of Tartar always added to the quick breads as well!

Just to explain that I have a rather thrifty calorie storage system, I was eating more this weekend and I  had desert once.  I gained 4 lbs in 4 days. Now it will take me 4 weeks to lose it..unless I exercise a lot...

Sorry to hear that.  I still have to eat like a pig to keep my boiler warm, but I'm burning lots of garbage, so that must be the difference.

I had some ground turkey mixed with feta cheese drizzled
with olive oil and oregano. Also a rice cake with PB and
an iced coffee. Kind of boring, but not in the mood to cook.
It's my second day with the turkey, but I was so run down this
week and it's the only protein that made me feel better.

I had a fantastic Salmon salad for lunch today.  I'll post to the recipe center when I get the exact measurements down.  Basically it is:

3 oz. canned Salmon
1/2 organic avocado
1 tbs EVOO, cold pressed
Finely chopped onion
Finely chopped celery
Finely chopped cilantro
Squeeze of lemon juice
Sea Salt

Scrumptious, I tell you.

Yes, I can get annoyed easily.....especially after lack of sleep
or time of month. I get very irritable and even stuff like too
much wind gets on my nerves. Temper is not too bad though unless
I'm really pushed.

I used to...        
Eating compliantly has reduced pain and relieved much of my stress   - I take Nitricycle, Catechol, and Methyl B-12 as needed to help with reducing stress and nerve pain as I continue to heal.  

My wife has noticed a huge difference in my demeanor and attitudes.     

I can still get annoyed, but find it much easier to control the response.

Controlling the response is important. I find that if I let things get too
out of control, I end up with a constant cycle of pain from tension. I'm a typical Warrior in that I just can't seem to relax. The atlas chiropractor yesterday couldn't believe anyone could walk around with muscles so tight. It's like they are in a constant state of constriction! Does the Nitricycle, Catechol, and Methyl B-12 help with that at all?

It's like they are in a constant state of constriction! Does the Nitricycle, Catechol, and Methyl B-12 help with that at all?

The best results I've had for muscle tension are from:
1) Exercise - enough but not too much.  Sometimes, I just work the tight areas so I don't overwork.
2) Massage, if it isn't enough by itself, I use some Formula 303 - made by Dee Cee Labs. in White House, TN.  I got it from my chiro...
3) Meditate - I sometimes concentrate on prayers / spiritual topics and sometimes on focusing energy to relax and heal a specific location.  It definitely helps me.
4) Methyl B-12 helps with nerve health and it is usually the nerves that are causing the muscles to be tensed - usually by triggering the brain...  I haven't ever done a specific test for this, but it has been some time since I had my atlas move out...  It used to happen regularly and I am still healing nerves up there, but the pain is getting less all the time.
5) Make sure I keep the toxin levels in the body down.  I get more pain, and therefore, chiro type problems when I get too toxic.  Whether it is something I eat or that I am detoxing more than the filters keep up with.  Part of this is regulating the amount of exercise I get - if I do too much, I'll release too much toxin and get behind.

I try to do all of these things regularly so I don't get "bound up".  I muscle test foods and supps, and exercise to feel.  If I don't feel good, I will usually take a short walk, if it helps I continue or do do something else that needs to be done...  If a short walk doesn't help, I verify other needs or ultimately rest.

Hope this helps some...

Thanks ABJoe.....the info helps a lot! I figured nobody else had
these problems. Just one cycle of tension causes so much to be off.
I guess that's why they say us A's and Warriors especially should meditate
and do yoga....I get the yoga now.

Hi Fellow Warriors!   I am back from the depths of heck. Being sick and getting my last son through Graduation...Ahhhh.. Please check the Photo Album. I have a shot of him there!

My major problem is white refined sugar. It is a neutral for me, but I must treat it as an avoid. It just completely stalls my weight loss efforts.    Do any of you have this problem?  I'm open for tips. I tried fruit juices and they did the same thing. I'm using stevia and a little agave.  But what can I do to keep away the sugar cravings?

Sugar was difficult for me at one time MF.  I sympathize with what you're going through.  

I don't care for stevia; it tastes a bit like the artificial sweeteners to me.  I used agave to get me through the need for sweet things.  

Now, these days, all my sugar cravings are satisfied with compliant fruit.  

All I can tell you is once you get it out of your diet, it becomes much easier just like all the other nasty avoids.  I know it's a neutral for you but you recognize it as an avoid.

Avoid it like the plague and before you know it the cravings will magically disappear.  

Best wishes to you in tackling this unnecessary evil.

Sorry that you've been feeling down...  

Too much sweet bothers me as well...  It doesn't matter what form.  There are times when I just can't do it.  I used to have cravings, but just had to say "No"., and take a tsp. of ghee or some protein every time I wanted a sweet...  Now, I no longer have the cravings, and most of the sugars I eat are in either fruit, or the juice or light syrup they were canned in...  

I use cranberries and figs to flavor and sweeten quinoa when I cook it for cereal.  I eat fresh fruit; apples, apricots, blackberries, figs and grapefruit all from the trees / vines when ripe and canned pineapple or peaches when the body wants them.  

I use a bit of maple syrup when I make pancakes, but often use apple sauce on the bottom cake and syrup on the top cake of a two cake stack and eat as many of these as I want...

If I drink tea, which isn't often, I don't add sweet!  If anything, I put lemon or lime juice or slice in it...

Hope this helps...

Thanks for the tips.  I'm trying to "listen" to my body. It feels like it needs carbs in the morning..plus protein. If I don't have protein in the morning like eggs, I'll crave carbs all day long. Same happens if I don't have the carb in the morning. My body doesnt' require white refined sugar, it wants either, fruit, whole grains or something like that. This morning I made oat bran pancakes with cottage cheese in them.
I used pure maple syrup,(as little as I could)  and had some berries with it.  I'll see how my body is reacting. I should be good till dinner time since I ate breakfast late.  If I can just do one portion of sugary carbs in the morning or have my fruit in the morning, I think that will help...I'll report back...

MF, I like oatmeal with a little maple syrup and ghee. The ghee keeps the maple syrup sugar from making me hungry. Natural sugar makes me hungry if I don't eat fat with it. I also eat a lot of benefical fruit (3-4 servings) especially in the summer. I need to eat dairy and nuts with fruit or I'll get  hungry 5 minutes later. If I eat fruit alone, I get sugar crashes. If I eat fruit with dairy (yogurt, kefir, compliant cheese) and nuts then I feel satisfied for hours.

I hear ya Sharon, I used to live on oatmeal every morning. I love oatmeal. I had it with nuts, dates, raisins and honey.. for years. After M, now if I have it like that, I'm hungry all day long. I can have it with PB in it and it helps to keep my insulin more steady.  That's why I eat my fruit in the morning, because I read the body is most able to handle carbohydrates in the morning than during the rest of the day..(causing increasing hunger) But even when I was younger, like you, if I ate fruit alone during the course of the day, it would set off hunger and cravings for the rest of the day. That works for you eating protein with it. Some people can't digest fruit and protein together and Dr. D mentioned about eating protein with high fiber vegetables and carbohydrates by themselves.. in the GTD, on page 183

I usually mix proteins, fats and carbs in each meal, but not always...  It depends on the combination...

I can't do two meals in a day...  If I eat a late breakfast, I will eat lunch soon after...  It is like lunch is almost a continuation of breakfast...  The body needs that much food.

Sugar is a hard one to kick. For me, sugar makes me want to eat grains. The first three or four days without sugar are the hardest, but if I can survive that, it gets easier. The key is not to start up again! I'm with ABJoe, I don't sweeten my coffee or tea, and use agave where I can. It doesn't seem to react in my body the same way as sugar does.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Even ants won't bother agave. Have you noticed that?  They'll be all over the honey and maybe the molasses (if I don't wipe the containers off well), but they leave agave alone.

I heard some people use black strap molasses in their coffee or tea. I've been putting a little molasses and maple syrup in oatmeal. I always have at least one egg with my oatmeal, too. Most of my sugars like blackstrap molasses, stevia, agave are all neutral. Maple syrup is a black dot for me and honey is an avoid. Has anyone cooked with Fruit Pectin  or Vegetable Glycerin? They're both beneficial on my Swami but I haven't tried them yet.

Pre-BTD, I used Fruit Pectin to make jams and jellies...  I haven't explored this since starting BTD, since I really haven't had the extra energy and I don't use much added sugar now...  I'd rather just can the fruit and use it mashed on rice cakes or pancakes...

I bought 1 pint of Now brand Vegetable Glycerine and used about 2/3 of it.  It had a sharp after taste that nobody liked, so it has been pushed to the back of the cupboard...  As I recall, there were other people that said some other brands were better, but I don't remember more about it now...

Those numbers are exceptional!  I only mentioned it as you said something about keeping your insulin steady.  

There are quite a few BG monitors out there today that are inexpensive and are quite accurate.  It's a great tool to help you figure out what may be causing sugar spikes and lows and teach you which foods you react well to and those that have negative effects for you.  IMO, it'd be comforting for you to know how your body reacts to various sweeteners.  

My numbers always came within the broad range whenever tested in the past.  It took just one high fasting glucose number for them to finally say "Houston I think we've got a problem here".  Although I'd been telling them the same for 15+ years.  Having a good fasting BG one day doesn't mean it'll be the same the next nor the day after that.

Monitoring has saved my life, along with Dr. D's wealth of knowledge and research, and has made food choices much easier for me.  I've now figured out what causes the extremes with my blood chemistry thanks to the above.

I am always surprised at how good fresh figs make me feel...  I started picking and eating figs for this year, earlier this week and it just helps the digestion and elimination tremendously.  Even though I was still eating canned figs from last year, the fresh ones are just better.  It must be the fresh enzymes or the balance of all the good in them...

I love figs. I wish I had a fig tree.. Do they grow in the north east?   I love turkish figs.  My favorite cookie was fig newtons..

Seems my burning in my stomach was caused by wheat.   I stopped the wheat and 99% of the burning and indigestion is gone.. I had some spelt yesterday and I didn't feel good.  Unless it's the seasonal allergies and the wheat is aggravating it? Anyone have a wheat reaction only in the summer? sigh..I'm in denial.

Mayflowers, I understand what you're going through. I have a wheat reaction all the time because of my nonnieness. My Swami gives me sprouted wheat and spelt but it needs to be 100% pure and it's really hard to find in stores. Most of the store-bought products have hidden fillers of regualr wheat because it's cheaper. Now I just stay away from it all... unless I make it myself (and that's rare). I might make my own spelt or sprouted wheat bread 1 or 2 times/ year. Most of the time I just focus on the other beneficial carbs like rice, amaranth, flax bread, millet, oatmeal, rice cakes, etc.

ABJoe, I love fresh figs, too. I can only find them fresh around summer and fall when they're in season but I adore them. I never ate a fig until the BTD and I see that it has something in it that I need.

Benefits of figs...
http://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/fruit/health-benefits-of-figs-or-anjeer.html

I have read that with heavy mulching, figs can be grown in freezing climates.  Here is a web site that discusses growing figs in cold climates...
http://gardening.about.com/b/2010/01/27/gardening-question-of-the-week-can-i-grow-figs.htm

I've found that I need to avoid all wheat, but I can eat a spelt muffin or two per week.  I feel best using quinoa and rice for my grains.

Seems my burning in my stomach was caused by wheat.   I stopped the wheat and 99% of the burning and indigestion is gone..  

Discovery is so rewarding!

Wheat wrecks havoc on my digestive system also.  

Gluten-free steel cut oats just might allow you to reintroduce "oatmeal" back into your breakfast choices.  Just a thought.

As long as you don't have previous damage done from other lectins from your previous diet, the wheat will be good for you.  You should either pick the BTD or GTD diet to follow, though, as they are different programs...  Depends on the answers you provide for the test.

I have a tremendous amount of damage from my previous diet and wheat anything seems to add to the abdominal pain...  I am currently using quinoa and rice for the majority of my grain carbohydrates.  I sometimes add in some oatmeal, amaranth, and flax seed in small quantities, though.

I'm not SWAMI'fied, but it is avoid per the book and I know I don't do well with it from when I was following BTD and ate it several times...  The body told me pretty quickly that I didn't need to eat more!

Millet is a black dot for me. I eat it once in awhile. Dr. Nash said I could have a bacterial overgrowth causing the burning..from too many Z paks. So, I'm on Gastro D and a few other things

I think this is due to really poor stomach acid. HCL and coffee has been bringing back my ability to eat it. SWAMI may think I am a reactor but I am not sure because I need to change the caffeine thing on it.

I have no idea why Millet is a black dot for me. It doesn't bother me. I make a mean curried millet salad..  
I'll have to ask why I was not prescribed hcl.  Unless it's very strong and my stomach was irritated as it was.
I'm feeling a little better. I was using the Gastro D but I was not taking in on an empty stomach. Now I am with the polyflora and tons of yogurt. I'm also going to make fermented vegetables.. ABNoway had a link for a starter for it that I bought.

I stopped the antacids. I'm using licorice solid extract, Gastro D and Deflect and I'm also taking quercitin with bromalain from Now.  I can't take NAP's bromalain because the dosage is too high.
500 mg gives me a migraine. It has to be less than 500 mg.  It's much better. I also stopped eating/drinking hot foods. (Trying to balance my Pitta dosha)

I am always surprised at how good fresh figs make me feel...  I started picking and eating figs for this year, earlier this week and it just helps the digestion and elimination tremendously.  Even though I was still eating canned figs from last year, the fresh ones are just better.  It must be the fresh enzymes or the balance of all the good in them...


Wow, fresh figs?  Do you go out and pick them from the vine?  That would be ... ahem ... "divine".  

But, yeah, I hear ya, aren't figs awesome?  I love the dried mission figs from the Co-op.  It is my favorite dried fruit.  If I could pick them fresh I'd probably pass out from the pleasure.

I used to love Fig Newtons as a kid.  Hmmm... homemade fig newtons with spelt flour.  Now I need to hunt down a recipe around here for that.

Yes, I pick them from the tree (about 20 ft. tall, due to topping)...  My figs are about 2-3" diameter and full of sugar...  I made my own fig newtons from fresh figs, but the fig flavor is very subtle in these - it is mostly just sweet.  I now either eat them fresh or can them for winter eating.  

I spread a fresh fig on a rice cake or split the fig open and fill the center of both halves with peanut butter...  So many ways to be creative...

Peanut butter?   That's interesting.  I think they're good on cottage cheese.  But then, I think any fruit is good on cottage cheese.  Or ricotta.

I learned as a child to pull each fig apart before biting into it.  Sometimes bees crawl up inside and hide there.

Do any of you lovely Warriors have a problem with Quorn?   I keep trying to eat it and I keep having problems. I bought the naked cutlets and almost choked on them, then every time I eat it, I get bloated and my weight goes up instantly  Last night I had the meatballs...I'm so bloated.. ahhhhh

Congrats... that's great news!  You know I've been a big anti-antibiotic warrior for a while.  My gut began a quick healing process upon elimination of the antacids.  
I also take a Quercetin (500mg) & Bromelain (375mg) supplement as well as Garlic + Digestive Enzymes and have no need for the damaging little purple pill.  I plan on purchasing the NAP Quercetin/Bromelain as soon as I run out of what I have.

Quorn was one of my favorite protein sources for a number of years.  I quit eating it because of the wheat gluten intolerance issue.  

Looking at the ingredients you'll notice a number of red flags:

Mycoprotein (51%), rehydrated egg white, onions, textured wheat protein (wheat protein, wheat starch), whey protein concentrate, canola oil. Contains 2% or less of dextrose, autolyzed yeast extract, salt, potato maltodextrin, tapioca starch, pectin, natural flavors from non-meat sources, citric acid, garlic powder, gum arabic, calcium lactate, onion powder, black & white pepper

Made from natural ingredients.

Allergic Consumers:
This product contains: egg, milk and wheat ingredients. We do not use any ingredients derived from genetically modifies sources.

The bloating is likely coming from the wheat protein/ wheat starch, potato maltodextrin and tapioca starch sources.

Thanks !   I'm taking liquid cal/mag so that helps also. I think I need more calcium.

Yeah, I think I'm giving up the quorn. It's listed as a beneficial on my SWAMI but I'm reacting to something in it.. As Dr. D said, I'm a Warrior with sensitivities.. I have no reaction to TVP. I know some people don't like it .. because it's processed, but I don't eat it as often as tofu and tempeh..

Interesting.  My latest lab reports from late April returned a really high calcium level which I was told was a direct response from the over usage of antacids.  I'm depending on calcium rich foods exclusively now as my calcium source and anxious to have another full blood panel done in the near future.

Depends on how big the eye opens...  If it is closed or really small, definitely no bees.  I mostly have to worry about fruit flies, but if I eat one, I treat it as a Neutral...  I squished some inside a fig when I tried to open it - wasn't appetizing...  Decided I'd just tap on the fig to get the flies out, then eat the fig...  

I like the cottage cheese idea...  Thanks!

lol lol...treat it as a neutral.  Tap on the fig? Not afraid to eat fly poop?  I figured the ones that taste like   when I bite into them are the ones that have some "other" protein in them.

Fruit flies as neutral.  

Any quorn product I ever saw was chock-full of avoids, so I never got any to try.  I don't know where Dr. D found some plain to test.  Kind of like almond cheese and soy cheese.  Any I've ever seen had avoids in them!

TVP makes me feel bloated and gross.  But I once made some really interesting Grape Nut substitute with it.  Tasty, but....not worth the bloated grossness.

There is so much sugar and little crunchy seeds in these fresh figs, that you couldn't tell if there was a whole fly, much less a little fecal matter...

Hello, Warriors !
Have been reading some of your posts and want to know how you muscle test on yourself.
My chiro has been testing me for years, but I have not been able to test myself successfully. What is the secret?
Has anyone found an effective treatament for hemorrhoids?  I have a stubborn case that has lasted for 2 weeks and I don't have any of the "common risk factors".  I comply to the Warrior diet pretty closely and can't get  what I am eating that has aggravated this so badly.
Would love to know if other Warriors have this problem and better yet, have a solution.

if you need a more personalized approach, try a swami, that will be the ultimate!

You're quite welcome W430!    Warriors are the minority in the genotypes. Not a whole lot of us.

Hi BB welcome!   I do it with the middle finger and thumb of the right hand and try to close  together the index and thumb of my left hand. If they close easily..it's bad. If I get good resistance..the thing is good.  But you're right. If someone else does it..there's less being partial.. like if you really didn't want to hear a "no" answer ..you could sway the results subconsciously but the ND would be impartial.

Would love to know if other Warriors have this problem and better yet, have a solution.

First, using MRT on self is an art which many practitioners believe can't be done reliably accurately.  I probably only have an 70 - 80% accuracy...  I confirm almost every test with a different question to increase the chances of reliability, especially if I get a weak response rather than a very strong response.
Some keys to muscle testing myself:
   Totally detach your mental from physical - you can't want a specific result to any question and expect it to be accurate.  This is the hardest thing because our brain knows what it thinks and is used to "ruling" the body.  This can be good and bad.  The bad shows up when you try to have the body tell the brain what it needs when the brain thinks otherwise.
   Ask only Yes / No questions.  Become really good at "20 questions" because sometimes the real beneficial answer doesn't come right away.
   Your spine needs to close to properly aligned.  A large misalignment or fixation will make it impossible to get an accurate result.
   Practice, practice, practice, then repeat this step...  One way I practiced to confirm accuracy was to test at the same time as the practitioner...  If they get a specific result, confirm it.  Don't do this as a challenge to their test, but just to attempt confirmation.  Also, challenge the test with a different wording to get a different or the same response.
   Remember that many practitioners do not think it is possible to accurately self-test, so this tells me that there are many who can't do this accurately and you may be one of those people...  My holistic practitioner didn't believe self-testing was possible until I showed her that I could match her results...  She still has difficulty testing herself accurately, while my NAET practitioner could test herself, as well as patients across the room or around the world over the phone.  It may have to do with how sensitive you are to your or others' energy.

About your hemorrhoids - I had one that came and went for years before BTD and several years after.  Sometimes it would bleed, others it just hurt.  After BTD, it started coming back smaller and smaller until it was gone...  I'm not sure what made it come or go, but I'm happy it seems to be gone...

I have the same thing. I thought mine was from having 2 children?    Anyway I get the same symptoms when I go off my diet.. But now since I've been compliant, it's much better. I didn't think hemorrhoids were the result of eating wrong. I just thought  you get them from straining?

Hemorrhoids are varicose veins just in a ... specific area.  From what I understand.  Somebody told me about white oak bark when I was expecting #3 and had varicose veins on my legs real bad.  Just a quick google search turned this up:  http://www.hemroidharry.com/white-oak-bark.html

Within days of starting white oak bark capsules, my veins vanished.  I kept taking it till the baby was born.

As a kid we had a fig tree amongst many other fruit and citrus bearing trees.  My mom would rake up dead pine needles and put them under the fig tree, for some reason.  Mulch, perhaps?  Anyway, one 4th of July I was playing with sparklers and as the thing was near the end of its life, I hurled it high into the air.  It landed in the dead pine cones and caught the beloved fig tree on fire.  Ooooops

Anyway, reading your thread and the suggested recipes my friend received I was desperately longing for figs.  The are just as good as I recall from my childhood.  I've just eaten a couple of them raw thus far but will try the peanut butter mix tomorrow.  Sounds delightful.

Hi W430,
My pleasure to help out..fellow Warriors..   What you're doing sounds ok..Tai chi in and of itself is cardio..do you feel that you really need the walking? I see the bowflex is to prevent osteoporosis.. do you feel stressed out from it?  Dr. D said it's ok to do resistance training but make sure you add in the stress reducer exercise.

I myself am trying to find a balance on that. If you like to come into the "A FS Fitness Log" thread..(FS means fresh start)  in the Fit Right 4 Your Type forum, you can log your workouts with the rest of us and chat about what feels good. It's all A's (mostly) so we all can compare notes.  I just started riding a bike again and I also started Oxycise and I like the body blade. (really good for rotator cuff rehab and really tightens the core)

Oh boy!  Mulch definitely helps retain the moisture, but can have other effects as well.  Hope the tree recovered.

Enjoy your figs!

Lola linked in a great overview.  I do some walking, some stretching, some meditation.  Probably not as much as recommended due to ongoing detox.  If I do too much, I get overly toxic and feel really bad for several days.  As an AB, I have less problem with Cortisol...

I saw the lemon juice thread. Do any other Warriors have problems drinking lemon juice in water?  I can't tolerate it.  I have a citrus allergy. I was even drinking copious amounts of  iced green tea with lemon and my stomach started burning after a week of daily drinking. I had to stop drinking tea with lemon.  I like raspberry or peach better anyway.

I use lime juice at home and lemon if we are out somewhere, but I don't drink it everyday because I don't seem to need it that often.  I've never had a problem associated with either.  I usually drink it tap temp or colder, unless I have hot tea.

Hi Warriors,
What's for breakfast?   I had my favorite (other than pancakes)  oatbran cereal with a dash of vanilla, stevia, raisins and peanut butter..with almond milk Mmmm..yummo. I  could eat pancakes or oatmeal every day...love it. I also had some scrambled eggs with chives for protein or I would get hungry all day long.

Sounds tasty... For those of you looking for tempeh recipes, Christina Cooks has a couple of cookbooks with a lot of tempeh recipes. She's a vegan who's following macrobiotic cooking ..says she was cured leukemia by macrobiotics.. Notice.. that she looks like a Warrior..   Might be the reason.
Japanese cooking other than sushi is not a favorite cuisine of mine, but she has Americanized tempeh recipes in there. Even recipes for brown rice syrup..Some of you might have that and not know how to use it.

I'm at war with two bacterial illnesses right now (this lingering strep throat and now a sinus thing which isn't pretty), so I'm going raw for a couple of days and see if I can get rid of it without an antibiotic.  

So this morning I had a juice made by my beloved DH with celery, apple, pineapple, ginger root and lime.

For lunch I had some cucumber slices (straight from the garden) and an attempt at a nap.

For a snack I'm having a bowl full of almonds, peanuts, dried figs and dried currants.

I had some fresh lemonade too.  Fresh squeezed lemons, water and agave.  Yum!

I'm a mess with a dog bite wound (it is healing, but the actual puncture wound is kind of pussy and slightly pink (not tender)). I also am experiencing edema in my ankles and knees, the right one being worse than the left. The right side is where the dog bite is, and I scraped the back of my heel last night on a metal door as I was walking out (also the right). The swelling got so bad today that as soon as I was done grooming, I had to soak my feet in cold water with acv, then elevate them for a better part of an hour, then finally I gave in and took 2 advils. I can now see the veins in my feet, but they are still slightly swollen. I also had (what I think was) an overdose on EmergenC last week, and actually fainted while driving. No one was hurt, thankfully. To read more about that, go to the FS thread.

Hi Drea,
Yes, I read about you fainting in the FS thread. I posted a message for you.. I don't know if you saw it there.     For your wound, get Manuka honey on it right away. It kills infection like crazy where antibiotics have failed..it kills the flesh eating bacteria as well (MRSA)
http://www.manukahoneyusa.com/customer-testimonies-with-photos.htm
Check out the photos..gross but makes the point of the healing power.

Thanks for the link for Manuka Honey, Mayflowers. Looks interesting. And yes, I did see your post. Your link was very interesting (and apropos). Sorry I didn't reply.

My legs were normal when I woke up from sleeping with my feet elevated all night, but after being up for an hour or so, the right one is now swelling again. Not as bad as last night, though. I'm drinking plain water and limiting my salt intake, as well as staying compliant foodwise.

No worries... ..  I noticed in the summer I get very bloated due to the heat. What happens is the heat makes the body retain water in case of a drought.. Efficient huh?    Not very comfortable.. The way to get rid of the bloat is to convince your body that you are not having a drought and drink a lot of water..no soda..(Lol..I saw the mountain dew..hey I love ginger ale..) The caffeine in the soda will dehydrate you, and also if you drink tea and coffee.  

Also, I wanted to add that I finally took Lola's suggestion and started body brushing after 4 years of not doing it..
I have a ex-broken ankle that stills swells up especially now..I noticed the swelling has gone way down since I been body brushing the last  two months, so I think this might help.  Thank you to Miss Lola..

I severely (so much so that I was in a cast for my HS graduation) twisted  my left ankle when I was 18 and then the next Spring, almost to the day, twisted it again (yup, another cast). It swells up too, but I've never made the connection to the warmer months until you mentioned it (makes sense since I rarely wear socks in the summer, but almost always in the winter). I used to body brush every morning. I'll start again to see if that makes a difference. I know my skin loved it. I stopped when I moved from CA to CO, where it gets cold in the winter. Now I live in NM, and it still gets cold (ha ha). If I make it a habit while it's still warm...

I just got a referral from a client on a ND in Los Alamos; not close, but may be worth a visit. My client "swears by" her, she says the ND has helped her tremendously with a until recently un-diagnosed case of diverticulitis? I'm not exactly sure what that is, but it sounded painful from Michelle's description. Anyhoo, I'm going to call this ND tomorrow to set up an appointment.

Divertivculitis, an infection in the diverticulum in the intestines..the little pockets in the wall of the colon that fill with stagnant fecal matter and get inflammed.from the food not moving fast enough. My grandmother had it. Most probably from being old, and an A and eating meat..which tends to not move quickly through the intestines..

This Warrior is very sad and depressed after his mother-in-law's funeral today.  No, I have not cheated, and will not.  Took my son to his play performance (as Huck in Tom Sawyer) and did a little shopping.  Got some baby Yu Choi that looks wonderful.  Plums, avocados, limes, scallions, all kinds of superfoods.  Asked the lady at the market where they get their Asian vege's and they said California.  It always looks wonderful.  Now doing some laundry.  Anything to keep my mind off today's events.  Too tired to do the dishes.  My mother-in-law was a terrific lady, never an unkind word to me, and terribly missed by all.  Got such a busy weekend ahead of me--cooking (then more dishes), mowing the lawn, running my son to his play, seeing him in his final performance on Sunday.  What else?  There's always something.

Sorry to hear about your loss Adam.  Good on you for deciding not to "reward" yourself for the pain you've endured through all of this.  

Speaking of super-foods, do you like mushrooms?  If so, can you find Mitake mushrooms in your area?  I highly recommend them.  I can't get enough of 'em.  

Peace be with you.

Thanks, everyone.  Had some guacamole (can't get enough of it) and flax crackers, and then some refreshing cucumbers/onions/garlic/lemon juice/oregano/salt/water that's been sitting on the counter all day.  Garlic and onion are in both, and those help me sleep. Had my Methyl-B12 and L-Tryptophan, so hope to drift off to sleep soon.  Looking for a fresh start tomorrow.

Thanks for all the support, everyone.  Was a busy day yesterday, doing laundry, shopping, cooking, dishes, mowing the lawn, then going out to the blues club for a bit of entertainment.  A nice fun ending to the day.  Should I confess about the couple of little naughty little cheats I had?    

No matter, I'm still at 225, the lowest weight yet, and looking forward to work next week, so I can get back on my normal exercise routine.  Being home all week put a damper on my walking, as there is nowhere here that I like to walk.  

The freezer is full of basmati rice & lentils, and many servings of yu choi and gai-lan.  Will be baking up copious amounts of flax/spelt crackers.  Got some fresh new miso from Japan, so looking forward to sampling some of that.  Got plans to make some saag paneer with basmati rice today.  Haven't done that in a while.  Very compliant stuff.  

All is well, and looking forward to continuing my journey to complete wellness.

I need to get with the program and make my lunch. I manage to eat breakfast but lunch is a real problem. Lately I've been having soy/almond milk smoothies I make for lunch and they are pretty dang filling..I add 3 scoops of soy powder (Genisoy) and lecithin, and brewer's yeast and either pb, stevia, almond butter,  or mixed frozen berries.  Sometimes I'll make it at home (If I can remember   ) and take it to work with me.

My lunch was a bowl of blueberries and a tofurky sausage with horseradish sauce. Not the best, but it could have been worse. I'm looking at a big pile of soy nuts, almonds, pepitas, and dried cranberries (home made trail mix) but I must have eaten too much yesterday as it just does not sound good to me today. I'm going to get a large container of ice so I can have some unsweetened cranberry water.

OK, so, I was sitting in a meeting at 3pm STARVING TO DEATH, and I'm going "Hey, Adam, how many lentils did you put in that basmati rice?".  So, I did a bit of googling and found that I was WAY OFF on the lentil measurements.  I will be adding a LOT MORE of those little guys next time.  No wonder I kept wanting to keep shoveling down the rice.  NOT ENOUGH VEGETABLE PROTEIN!!!   TOO MANY CARBS!!!!!   ARRRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!

ok i feel better now.    (especially after this piece of dark chocolate right here, yum!)

Ok, so dinner is way better than breakfast or lunch. Br. rice pasta with sauteed mustard greens, turnip greens, spinach, feta, fresh ginger root, and fresh pressed garlic. Cranberry water.

How about you?

Adam, for reference sake.  I usually eat about 3/4 cup lentils to 1/2 cup brown rice per serving.  I'd say you've probably already figured out the correct proportions judging from your post.  Certainly need more vegetable protein and less carb content.  

This is just my opinion but guessing from what I read you're eating, I'd think if you were to adjust some of your cracker and other good carbs just a tad bit you'd probably notice even more dramatic results with both your weight loss and skin care.  I'm not talking about going all out Atkins but just a minor fine tuning of the breads, cereals, rice and cracker portions.

Hi all,
Yesterday I did very good up until dinner time and them I cracked..I don't care to discuss the level of cracking but I'll say I stayed vegetarian.    And of course you all know why..My son. Not to mention..I'm having financial difficulties..I got my sons through high school that's what's important. Now if I can get James through college..I'd be so grateful..

OK, so, I was sitting in a meeting at 3pm STARVING TO DEATH, and I'm going "Hey, Adam, how many lentils did you put in that basmati rice?".  So, I did a bit of googling and found that I was WAY OFF on the lentil measurements.


Hi Adam
Do you find you can eat as much of the diamond foods that you like and still continue with weight loss?  Because if you can..eat as much as you like.  Straight from the doctor's mouth...   (or Mac)

Thanks for the input MHR and MF.  I am fine tuning my diet as we speak.  I have "plateaued" and need to continue weight loss.  Still at 225-227 for about 2 weeks now.  Still too round about the belly.  Not good.  Still too heavy to take walks comfortably.  Right foot is flat and that ankle still aches sometimes.  Anyway, I'm going to revive my SWAMI thread and put more details in there.

Warriors,

How about some dinner suggestions? Are you eating cold meals or hot meals during the summer? My stomach is begging for cold meals.

Not a supper, but a great way to get your live foods the cool way.  I've been making sliced cucumbers & sliced vidalia onions soaked in water, lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, & salt.  Let sit overnight on the counter-top and dig in the next day all day long.

It was only hot here for about a week, then back to the 70s for us.  As such, I really haven't changed that much.  I also eat more proteins than suggested by the book, but I am doing a tremendous amount of detox and healing, which requires lots of protein.

Typical dinner for me is to cook come vegetables (brussels sprouts, peas, spinach) with some brown rice in turkey or vegetable broth with some compliant spices (curry combination, garlic, onion) and have some fruit (pineapple, peaches, watermelon, or figs) for dessert.  I sometimes add turkey, sardines, or tilapia to my rice combo to up the protein a bit.

When I want something cold, I will pre-cook some protein (meat or fish on the grill or oven), maybe some refrig'd beans and get salad fixin's & turn this all into a mountain of chef salad with some homemade ranch dressing substitute...

Another cold dinner - again very basic, put out a bed of cottage cheese, spoon some pre-cooked lentils or pinto beans (spiced compliantly, of course) over the cottage cheese, top with sardines and put a bunch of carrot sticks and maybe some broccoli florets on the side.  If you want more grain, less bean - replace the beans with rice, quinoa, or whatever else you have already made...  It is a matter of personal taste anyway...

As you can tell, I won't be winning the Masterchef competition, but I will eat good!

Nah, I would consider it a snack, myself.  Or as a side to go with some cold pinto bean dip (pureed pintos/onion/garlic/cilantro/cumin/lime/salt) and some homemade flax crackers.  A glass of red wine, and now you have a complete cold summertime meal.  Let me know when dinner is served!

I made bean dip yesterday.  Everybody loved it.  I'd made white kidney beans in the crock pot, then I pureed them with onion powder, salt, walnut oil and lemon juice.  I ate it on celery sticks.  Everybody else ate it on rice cakes.  If I was making it for myself I would have put a good bit of fresh pressed garlic.  But as it was (kid-friendly), the lemon juice really shined through and I was pleased.

Oh, how I would have loved to have brought up my kids on the BTD.  I think really that's the most practical way for young kids, know their blood type, and start them on the BTD.  My son is on the SWAMI at age 21.  I think this is amazing.  He is really the one who needs it the most.  He has major sinus issues, had ear infections as a kid, needed ear surgery.  He is a Theater major and can tell that the GTD/SWAMI gets him majorly healthy and brings out energy and emotion for the stage.  Now, my wife and daughters, well, we'll not go there.

I've been putsing through this thread as time permits, but I have a couple of questions. Admittedly I don't have the book yet, but I will get it.

1) Is it typical that Warriors are off of coffee? Or is it just because I said I was caffeine sensitive?

2) What is Warrior exercise supposed to be like?

Thanks- I promise to read the book!


You guys are great!

My Ma and I are both Warriors and we love coffee.  But, we both only have one cup in the morning, early, then wait half and hour, then eat.  (No, I don't live with her, I just know this about her)  I am not caffeine sensitive, but rather caffeine addictive.  I actually build up a tolerance to caffeine and need more just to get me going in the morning.  Now, yes, if I've gone off coffee for a week, then drink a cup, I'm spazzing out.  But, I build up a tolerance quickly.  Is this true of you as well?  You are an A, so coffee is good for you on the blood type diet (BTD), and ok for Warriors on the genotype diet (GTD).

Exercise should be light weights, walking, swimming, light hiking, tennis, 9 holes golf walking the course.  Not heavy weights and running like Explorers.  We should exercise nearly every day (4 days/week minimum I think) with some kind of cardio-based exercise for 30 to 40 minutes.  Also, stretch before and after for 5 minutes.  Meditation is also very helpful.

Get the book!

That's great! I love coffee. I am sensitive to caffeine, but only larger amounts and I'm happy to switch to decaf later in the day. If I want more at all. I was happy as a coffee drinking A. Then SWAMI took it away, so I guess it is because I said I am caffeine sensitive.

The exercise feels perfect! I could never do like an A~ stand still and breathe deep. lol. Reach up an arm. I gotta move it!!!

Thanks Adam.

Hmm. I guess a Warrior is a Warrior is a Warrior.. I would have thought you got a little more meat than me because of the B-ness.  Do you get lamb?  I can have veal once a week if I want. I can also have duck, cornish hen, (black dots) emu, caribou, kangaroo...


Wait, hold it- is a black dot a good thing? I thought it must be a super-avoid.

Also, is Rockfish on the Warrior list? It isn't in the typebase, but I love it; it tastes like red snapper. I need to know cuz we have it around here.

a black dot item is an item to be avoided for 3-6 months while the genes are reset - then to be treated as an occasional neutral as long as it doesn't cause weight gain or other problem...  Paraphrased from GTD book...

Rockfish isn't specifically listed for any Genotype - good or bad...  Is it known by some other name, or a relative to something else?

According to this information, some Rockfish species are misnamed Bass and others Red Snapper...  http://www.adfg.state.ak.us/pubs/notebook/fish/rockfish.php

Since we aren't sure whether the Rockfish was rated, I would assume Neutral rating.

I got myself some coffee after a time without it; since I did my swami. And guess what. Cracks in my hands again. I totally forgot that my hands got smooth when I went off coffee.   So back off coffee for another trial.

I ate away from home as carefully as I could today, but there could have been an ingredient in the ginger dressing I had that didn't work for me. Everything else was a super or diamond.

It could be coffee. Oh well.

Hmmm. Despite being busy yesterday and eating less food because of it, I gained a pound back. Everything was compliant unless there was a wrong ingredient in the ginger dressing or apple flax muffin and my COFFEE! I eat mostly diamonds! However, I was very sedentary yesterday. Long hours in the car and sitting in chairs here and there.

I will be shocked if I learn that black coffee puts weight on me. But I'll be watching to see.

Adam, it's only difficult initially.  Practicing is what builds the core strength required to do those balancing acts.  Tai Chi should never be stressful.  That's why Dr. D has included it in the A BT exercise regimen.  It's an anti-stress exercise.

I also think Tennis is way too stressful, yet Dr. D used to love it.  I love weights, too stressful for some Warriors.  Also love challenging hiking with hilly terrain.  That little Asian dude teaching Tai Chi was peeving me off big time. Guess it's each his own.

Hmmm. Despite being busy yesterday and eating less food because of it, I gained a pound back. Everything was compliant unless there was a wrong ingredient in the ginger dressing or apple flax muffin and my COFFEE! I eat mostly diamonds! However, I was very sedentary yesterday. Long hours in the car and sitting in chairs here and there.

I will be shocked if I learn that black coffee puts weight on me. But I'll be watching to see.

Not that I watch closely, but when I don't eat enough, I gain weight - like the body starts holding onto everything due to being hungry...

I don't have anything wrong with 85% chocolate, I meant that I wouldn't have any coffee to trade for it...

My post to MHR inspired me to go for broke and head to the wilderness areas around here and go for a hike.  Take a hike, Adam!  I just *know* that's what everyone's thinking.  Hmmm?  Hmmmmm?  

The hike was around a lake with NOBODY around.  I saw these bushes that had these purple clusters of dense little flowers with all of these butterflies on them.  Blue ones and yellow ones...looked like the monarch type.  Had one flying around me and teasing me.  What a treat!

Then a hike up some hills to cliffs that had these barren-like trees that had...get this...a few vultures sitting on them.  Then I look up and there are like a hundred birds WAY up in the sky circling and floating on the wind.  The sun was shining.  What a beautiful experience.  Got a lot of Warrior frustration out of my system.  Talked myself to death.  Made all sorts of future plans for my life, etc.  Just love it when I do that.

Had a wonderful meal post-hike.  A big big salad, just like Elaine from Seinfeld, with romaine and a tiny bit of spinach, with a dressing made from tahini (a SF from my SWAMI), lime juice, garlic, olive oil (that extra virgin stuff from Sicily, just divine), a little Celtic sea salt, mixed the dressing, then added the salad and mixed it altogether.  Had a little diamond red wine (or a lot, can't remember ha! ).  Had some leftover tofu reheated in a 400 degree oven that I'd deep fried last night, coated in brown rice flour and deep fried in olive oil.  Dipped those in soy sauce with fresh minced garlic added.

Oh, boy oh boy...I'll tell ya folks...I feel like a million bucks.  Fresh air, exercise, talking out all that Warrior built up nonsense in my system, a great 100% compliant meal afterwards...words fail me at the moment as to how great I'm feeling.  Having a little 72% "Endangered Species" brand dark chocolate which has little bits of espresso beans in it.  Heaven, I tell ya...simply Heaven!

Sounds amazing Adam! Takes me back to my childhood, and I'd like to have some of that today.

Adam; I never found out where you get your dandelion root tea.... missed it if you found my post and replied.

I feel so great about my diet, too, and am exercising a little more than I did before.

I also think Tennis is way too stressful, yet Dr. D used to love it.  I love weights, too stressful for some Warriors.  Also love challenging hiking with hilly terrain.  That little Asian dude teaching Tai Chi was peeving me off big time. Guess it's each his own.


Dr. D said that most exercise is fine..as long as you do the stress reduction..like meditation and/or yoga..

Ah too bad. We used to buy one 30 years ago that we just loved- it was satisfying like coffee, and then suddenly it was gone. They didn't make it anymore.

This is interesting because I took my Ma to the Co-op recently (she'd never been there before) and I showed her the bulk dandy root and she told me the same thing....that the stuff she used to buy was real dark and tasted similar to coffee.

Another good alternative is Teecino

http://www.teecino.com/     The "original" flavor has orange peel in it but the other flavors don't..like my favo..mocha It's very good. And it's made from barley. But they said no gluten was in it.
You just make a pot of coffee every day for a couple of weeks and sub one scoop for teecino..next day 2 scoops of teecino..and so on till it's all teecino and you're off coffee without withdrawals.

I always sleep a little better when I take B12. Try some melatonin, instead of sleeping pills for occassional sleeplessness.   I only take 1 mg.

Well I've yet to confirm but I'd be more surprised than I was when I found out I wasn't a nonnie if I happen to be anything else.  All of the basic/generalized questions show I'm a definite Warrior though.

I have the book but have been compliantly following the diabetes protocol for now.  I will begin reading it as soon as I'm comfortable enough to tackle a few new things.  

I take another A1c test this week.  Last results, I tested 5.9 which is just in the normal range.  A lower number this time will likely give me the boost I need to explore GTD and Swammi.

Hmm, it will be interesting. I'm sure swami will be great for you. It takes your diabetes into account. I'm really thrilled with my swami! And enjoying my added foods. Sad to see coffee go, but it seems to have a negative impact on my eczema, so it was one of those friends which are not really friends.

I pulled a muscle in my right bicep area; it's been on and off sore for over two months, but building the fence and having a lot of dogs that need a lot of brushing has taken it's toll on me. Would this be a good choice do you think?

Does anyone know where I can find out if elk meat is an avoid for my Warrior hubby? I assumed it would be since venison is an avoid, but he didn't seem to have a reaction to it...  He's also been okay with buffalo meat.
Any help would be appreciated! I'm a newbie and couldn't find anything when I did a search on elk.
Thanks much,
Dawn

I'm excited for the day I get to that point in my journey although BTD/diabetes protocol is working wonders for me.  AS for giving anything up I, fortunately, don't struggle with holding on to things that aren't good for me.  I like you're "friend that is really a bad friend" approach.  I'm also really open to trying new things once I wrap my head around the benefits.

Dawn,
Elk seems to be unrated for GTD, as I don't see it in the lists...  As such, most people would rate it Neutral for all.  I would treat it more like the other red meats for the Genotype in question, however.  In the case of Warrior, this means very little red meat or poultry.  

Dr. D. specifically stated that some of the byproducts of red meat digestion cause an increased chance of several cancer types in the Warrior Genotype.  As such, your hubby may not have immediate reactions, but the byproducts build up in tissue and aid cancer growth later.

I found the Now Brand Astaxanthin but it contains gelatin (which I don't do). I'm still searching for gelatin-free astaxanthin, but from everything I've read about it, it's the new wonder food.

Too bad. I said it before, I'm not a purist. I'll take it if there's only a small amount of gelatin. I don't eat Jello..or and kind of gelatin desserts so I'm good.  I actually hate Jello. Avoided the Jello salad rings like the plague.    Order it from NAP. You have to call them. It's about $25 for 30.  I have to go for the less expensive brand on my budget.

I'm taking a page from your book, Mayflowers. My friend picked me up a bottle of Solaray Astaxanthin, and I'm going to give it a try for 30 days. I really want to start the supp and when I've decided whether I want to continue, then I'll get the vegan variety. A little gelatin isn't going to kill me, I suppose.

Hi Mnmom!    I think your discomfort will subside..When years ago, when I first went vegetarian, beans really bothered me and as I kept eating them I got used them and the discomfort went away. I suggest trying Beano with it.  I myself like the liquid beano better than the pills. The pills made me queasy.

Great! That way you'll see if it works or not and then you can get it without the gelatin.

I'd say within the first week I noticed the pain was better..aches were gone and I knew I only added astaxanthin. I searched it on the web and other people were using it as well for pain..
check out the reviews... Only one person gave it one star.

The very first review was for shoulder pain.

As O's don't have Dairy products, what can we take to strengthen our bones? We must be short of Calcuim? Or do we need to take supplements ?

Don't allow yourself to be misguided by the standard dietary mish-mosh being spewed around by one-size-fits-all recommendations.  If you eat your green leafy vegetables and eat your meat / bone broth, you should get plenty of calcium / magnesium to have healthy bones.

Do many Warriors have problems with coffee? It is an avoid for me, but I think it is good for many of you? When I went off coffee for the first two days, my eczema largely cleared up with just some flaky skin left over. Of course I had to put that to the test a couple of times, enough to convince me that I need to stay off it.

Then, at my daughter's, she brought on Pero, which, it turns out, is made up of three diamonds for me, malted barley, barley and chicory. Yummy, with a wonderful creme on top. I added <> soy milk and it became perfect. But it threw my hands back out of whack somewhat. I ignored that for a while, actually forgetting that it was so much better before. Then for a couple of days just now I didn't have time for Pero. Voila', my hands are better again. This makes me wonder: do I have a problem with roastedness? Is that it?

Anyone else have a problem with roastedness?


You guys are great!

I can't stand the taste of coffee, never have been able to.  Even though the book says Superfood, it doesn't work for me...

That sure shows our individuality. My hubby would never get through the day without coffee, simply for the flavor. And he is an O; it is an avoid.

I enjoy my daily coffee. I don't need it for the caffeine (usually); just love the taste. It's a diamond for me.

My husband measures warrior in GTD.  We haven't gotten his secretor status, A1 A2 or MN status yet.  He is willing to try tofu.  He tried it years ago and didn't like it at all.  I was wondering what type of tofu you all would recommend trying for someone who is turned off to it and a way to cook it.

Ooh, I would not suggest Tempeh as the first try of tofu. It has a distinctive taste, whereas tofu tends to be bland and easily takes on the flavors of whatever you cook it with.

I like to eat extra firm tofu in stir-frys. Silken tofu is good for adding to "creamed" soups or soups that get blenderized.

Hi Guys

Thankyou all for such informative reading. I've just finished reading the GenoType Diet and initially thought I was a Gatherer (until someone helped me and said that Gatherers are not type A's). At that point I got very confused and had another look and thought I was a Teacher or Explorer and then realised that I'd misread the tables. When I went back for a third attempt with the tables in the back of the book it gave me a choice of Warrior or Explorer. Now, I don't know my excretor status but considering that A+ (which is me) who is a secretor is a Warrior and a non secretor is an Explorer (male) and a Warrior (female), I think the choice is simple..... I'm female so either way, I'm a Warrior!!!!! YAY!!!! I'm just glad to have finally been able to work it out...   This thread has been awesome and you guys all ROCK!!!! You all give information and assistance so freely. Thankyou.

I'm doing a degree in Naturopathy and this week (after my online exam), my studies referred me to the BTD. I looked at this years ago and found it too restrictive. However, given the fact that I'm about 65kgs (143.3 pounds) overweight and am getting married in April and want to start a family and get healthy, I need to do something about my weight and health. One thing I did notice, when I was away on holidays with my partner, everytime we ate out, I had fish. I felt so much better for it too but I couldn't figure out why. Now I know. Fish is beneficial and meat, chicken etc is not. I've ordered my SWAMI too just to make sure that I've not mucked up on my Genotype and to refine the foods I can eat. I'll keep coming back to this thread for more info from you all. However, as it's 11.54pm and I have to be up at 5am to start work, I really MUST go to bed. This will be the last late night for me and from tomorrow, I'll be incorporating much more meditation and exercise into my daily routine.

Thanks again everyone

Samantha

PS. Is anyone from Perth Western Australia? That's where I am... Have a good weekend everyone (long weekend if you have one).....

Hey guys, I hope you don't mind me asking a warrior question. I just started and also typed my husband and son. My husband came out to be a warrior, the discription was like reading my husband's bio! right down to the mid 30 spread he is under going right now. But after looking through the warrior diet I am afraid to tell him. My question, how do you tell a meat and potatos working man who raises his own pastured beef, chicken, and turkey that he needs to go to the store and buy fish??? I mean, no meat?? I'm in shock. By the way, I am explorer and my son nomad. How to work us all into a menu plan. oh my! It feels hopeless.

Hi Greyartist,
Hi and welcome!  
So you're positive husband is an A or AB?  Just be sure of his blood type before you freak.  
Yes the Warrior diet is ..sort of Spartan. ..

Warriors can have turkey (which I ate happily until I watched Food, Inc).

As a former farmer and meat and potatoes man, I can sympathize with him...  I do like turkey, although I only eat 1 or two meals of it per week...

I can tell you that I'm happier to be healing some old injuries than having beef, pork, chicken, potatoes or corn!  I had to remake my entire menu, but it is worth it in better health and less frustration about why I continue to eat "healthy" and continue getting sicker - along with the additional 30 to 40 pounds that kept growing...

My dad was a Warrior, meat and potatoes man.. He had gout and high blood pressure and diabetes as he got older..then he died young of a stroke at 67.

Yes he is an AB blood type, he gives blood regularly so he knew his without a test. Turkey?? I went back and checked again and it says no recommended poultry items(audiobook). Is it one of the black dot foods?

Hmm, I sit corrected. I thought all Warriors, regardless of blood type, could have turkey. Now, if he was Swami-ed, perhaps he could have more than turkey...

According to my paper book, turkey would be a Neutral for Warrior.  Yes, because there are no Superfood Poultry items, it says there are none recommended - but since Turkey isn't listed in the "Toxins to Limit or Avoid" list, it is considered Neutral.  

If you got his SWAMI, it may say something different.
