Did you know that he recommended 22 supplements for me
Dr D tell it to print the 'highly recommended' ones. Your bill will drop precipitously. Also realize, that it can't really tell you if you need this stuff. It just goes by strength of indications.

I understand how specific recommendations cannot be made here due to legal reasons, am I right? One must find this out on their own, reading their own body's signals, taking it a step at a time. I guess I could switch over completely to Dr. D's supps if this is the way I should go. But, at present, I see these available options to me at the moment:
Polyflora A Live Cell A Cortiguard Tranquility Base Warrior 3 Pack (Activator, Catalyst, Synergist) All GenoTypes Multivitamin (Exakta) All GenoTypes Multimineral
1) Take all of them at recommended doses 2) Take some of them at recommended doses 3) Take none & just let the diet run its course 4) Go out to Golden Corral for fried chicken and mash potatoes and gravy
On the supps, it's really up to you how much money you want and have to spend. I have always been told that with this diet you don't really need supps unless you have specific issues. Take me as example I have lots of overweight, pre-menopausal and probably pre-diabetic and cancer prone. So I take the warrior sups, special female hormone supps and something to keep my blood levels in check. And I got Swami to eat anti-cancer (it's the best way I can describe it).
Like I said before, you don't have any specific issues so you don't really need any supps, but if you just want something just for the support. I would go for warrior supps, the cortiguard (since you're trying to loose weight and keeping cortisol low definitely helps) and one of the multivitamins (either geno or btd). I have exacta as well and like it.
Personally I think that should be enough for you. When you are a bit further into the diet you can see if there is anything not completely right and then find the specific supp for that. Perhaps something to help your foot?? Or something for more flexible joint?
Ah, but I do have specific issues. Skin and Stress. My skin is pealing off my hands. It is getting better, but it is still there and I want to keep up the Skin Protocol. Polyflora A is part of that protocol. Stress is the reason I ordered Tranquility Base and Cortigard. Anyway, tomorrow I'll be switching entirely to NAP supps in small amounts.
So, on to another issue, the personality test in the SWAMI. Initially, I ended up as an ISTJ but as I studied some websites and particularly this one:
Well, last night, cooked for my son who told me yesterday he wants to be on the Teacher diet for a week to prepare for a play he's doing (Tom Sawyer, he's playing Huck Finn). Anyway, I cook up a bunch of compliant spelt biscuits and turkey/carrots/peas/onions/ghee/salt/arrow root/water (essentially a soup). So, I end up eating 3 biscuits and the turkey soup from 8pm to 9pm. Went to bed at 9:30. Way to go Adam! High fives all around!
I also left him a nice note that I cooked for him, enjoy, and also please do the dishes. I awake to only maybe half of the dishes done, and a scale reading of 229. Yay I gained 2 pounds! More high fives!
So, I guess it's fresh start weekend. I'll be mowing the lawn and always lose tons of weight doing that. But I guess that neutral turkey (which was delicious, btw) decided to stick around for a while. Gotta say, though, it sure was good. And I have zero desire for breakfast.
Hi and thanks Adam have really enjoyed reading this post as have confirmed that I am a Warrior not a Teacher as thought previously. Have a little tip of using Lemon flavoured Kelp powder with Soy Sauce when frying tofu. Simply delicious. Also a Nia Therapy Dance class for stretching and light cardio.
Hi Adam, just stumbled over your thread, and wanted to tell you my entrenched breakfast in case you ever want to try something different to your lovely egg dish.
Home made muesli: Cook 500 or 750 gm of oats in the oven for about an hour at about 150 degrees, stirring to prevent over browning every 15 minutes or so. Add masses of preferred beneficial nuts and dried fruits and psyllium if you need it, of about equal volume to the oats. Serve with soy milk, the best you can afford, especially without sugar, and some fresh fruit if you like. I am as attached to this thought-free breakfast as you are to yours!
The quantity above lasts me at least a fortnight, depending on how much I eat. It takes me through about 4 hours of morning activity until lunch most times.
