Quoted from ABJoe

The only thing I would add to this is get stress reducing exercise...  Cortisol tends to cause weight gain in Blood Type A people...  


This is actually great advice.  I'm really trying to step up the exercise. I actually used to lift heavy weights a lot, and was in excellent shape at 240 lbs, but didn't get a wink of sleep due to being hungry *all the time*.  After getting rectal bleeding a lot from eating too much meat and gobs of protein shakes, I decided to quit.  And heavy weights are a no no for Warriors so it makes sense.  This was about 4 years ago.

The mowing (argh!) and walking around campus (which I'm doing a lot more of lately) seem to do the trick.  I thought about swimming, but it is more of a pain in the butt, getting a rec pass, undressing, showering, dressing, etc.  Too much grief for me these days.  I may start doing some pushups and light weights at home when I start getting an abundance of energy and time.  

And forget golf, boom zing.... where did my ball go?

Oh contrare',  you just need to be creative. I slice tofu, saute it in ghee and then I put it on the plate and pour maple syrup on it.. Tastes like French Toast.  tasty.  


That does sound tasty, I'll have to try that as an afternoon snack sometime on the weekend.

This is funny... I had seen maple syrup in the Warrior list for months (years?) and then one day about 2 or 3 months ago decided to get some.  I had a fresh loaf of whole wheat bread from the Co-op sitting on the counter along with some ghee.  So.....In goes a slice of bread in the toaster, *pop* *grab* on goes the ghee, then pour on the maple syrup... syrup falling onto the plate, a little sprinkle of sea salt.  I think I went through that whole loaf in one day, maybe day and a half.

Now that was crazy, I know.  I'm pretty sure I ate that from past noon into the evening.  But, not in the morning.  Why?  The one thing my system can't really handle is concentrated sweetener first thing in the morning.  I always have my coffee BLACK, no sweetener.  Even the little bit of honey that is baked into the bread I toasted this morning, I could taste it.  

So, anything, even tofu, with maple syrup would make me have some kind of diabetic "passing out" feeling.  It just would not sustain me from 6am into, say, 9:30am in the middle of the morning at work.  I've done this before, and it's not pleasant.  

Now, I love a small piece of fruit (if only just a bite of an apple) in the morning, but it doesn't really have much sugar.

paprika?

Thanks MF...  It has the color, but not the flavor...  I don't care if it is real hot but I like a little warmth, and paprika is about all color...

True dat.  I don't even bother with paprika.  Hot sauce?  Forget it!  I'm burping and burning.  Argh!  But this chili powder from India is so subtle.  Kind of like a hot paprika.  Hmmm....maybe it is.

Beans are good for breakfast too.

it is one of those Warrior things.. miscommunication---- we hear it one way and the world hears it another.


Oh, my goodness.  Is this true!?  I live with a warrior and it explains a lot of things.

I thought that was true for most people, not just Warriors.  Don't most people in general feel misunderstood?  (Sorry, Adam, I just hijacked your thread.)

Hijack at will, Ribbit.  I don't mind.  

Ok, I may have to relent, Andrea, and try some pintos with my eggs this weekend to see what happens.  Sometimes you have to hit me with a brick to make me change.  

Last night was pretty crappy.  When I got home, I just didn't have anything "vege" that appealed to me, so I got out another basmati rice and lentil, made some whole wheat toast w/ ghee and maple syrup, green olives, and some dark chocolate.  What a combo, eh?

Well, this morning I weighed right under 230, at 229.8.  I suppose this would be the case since I had a vegetarian day yesterday.  Today I'm having my can of salmon, yay!

Interesting stuff, Lola.  I also took that 20 question test to see what supplements I should get.  I'm already taking the recommended ones mentioned in the book.  Maybe when those run out I'll try Dr. D's top of the line stuff.  I did notice a few were missing from Dr. D's supp's, for example, Alpha Lipoic Acid.  I wonder why that is?

Probably.  Not sure if this person is feeling misunderstood or not.

In this case, I have known this warrior for decades and it has always been common for this person to be in a room with several other people and hear what was said differently than all of the rest of the people in the room.

Hi Adam and a big (albeit late) welcome from sunny London town!!  It's been cool reading your thread - I love hearing how others are getting along!

I have to beg to differ in regards to paprika not being hot.  You just have to find the right one  .

Here I can get a really hot Spanish one or there's a Hungarian variety that can blow the socks off an airfield  !  I love it!

Now that I've dug out the book and looked at Spices, I see that paprika, chili powder, red pepper flakes, all that stuff are Toxins.  Egads!  What am I doing?  I need to cut that out.  Seriously.  Until I get the SWAMI, of course, then it all changes.

I've decided I'm going to postpone posting for a while so I can plan out my diet a bit better.  I'm going to incorporate beans and veges in the morning, somehow, as I need at least 5 servings of live foods per day, and I'm just not getting them.  This is going to be tough for me, but I can do it.

Once I get more definitive meal plans worked out for myself I'll post them here.  All suggestions welcome!

Quoted from SandrAruba
Try replacing the whole wheat for spelt. It suits the A body better. Also if you want to loose weight as an A you should limit your grain intake for a while.


I talked to our Co-op which bakes wonderful bread with all organic ingredients.  I was told to talk to the head bread maker on Friday about making some Spelt bread.  

Can I get a consensus on limiting grains/carbs?  Should I really do this?  I'm planning on 3 times a day like it says in the book.  I've done low-carb in the past and was always starving, which should not be the case on the Genotype diet, am I right?

My Live Foods intake varies some, but I usually get 2-4 servings daily.  So I guess I should add about 50% more on avg. since reco is 4-5...

Once I get more definitive meal plans worked out for myself I'll post them here.  All suggestions welcome!  


I should eat more fish and less eggs, according to the reco, but I'm getting about the right number meals of total protein, and my body seems to want the eggs rather than the fish.  I keep trying to add more veggies, but it seems to bog down the digestive travel time, and with the amount of detox I'm doing, I don't want to do that - since I end up with toxic headaches...

About your question on carb. limit... I do what feels good, most days I hit the portion frequency pretty close, sometimes I am short, and very rarely I go over for one day and make it up with less the next...

I know both of these feelings well...  the being misunderstood was more pre-BTD than now, because when I was really toxic, it affected my thought processing.  I attribute this to several things, 1) the brain was toxic and I just didn't think correctly, 2) I was in so much pain that this probably affected #1, 3) I wasn't able to think of all the different ways a comment could be taken before saying it.

All of these are getting better, or I'm getting better at knowing when to keep my mouth shut.  At least now, I know when and where I'm hurting - when I was toxic on corn, I had such a presence of pain that the bottom half of my head internally had been numbed...

Welcome to the forums Adam.  I just discovered your thread.

Dat?  Are you, by any chance, also a Saints' fan?  I really hadn't heard many people use that phrase, outside of my home town, until the Super Bowl run this past season.

Again, welcome and it's nice to hear about your journey here.

don t believe anything has been left out....provided you follow your guidelines and frequency values given......Dr D has done the summing up of nutrients for you and has included the necessary in your diet.

According to the book, frequency and portion size says 16 oz. per week for cheese is the max.  I tend to flex these a bit, especially if I'm eating all Superfoods in the category...  if it feels good, then why limit it.  

If you start having a problem, you may look at this as one of the first possibilities...

Well, this morning I was able to stay home due to a Dr.'s appt to see about skin peeling off my hands.  I've been doing a lot of dishes lately, and we have been using orange Ajax.  I got rid of it and replaced it with clear hypoallergenic Dawn.  I'm still concerned.  I'm going to investigate to see if I can find a dish soap from our Co-op.  The doc recommended getting our dish washer fixed.  He also said it might have been something as simple as the orange dye they use in the Ajax.

OK, so since I went carb-crazy yesterday, I decided on only fruit and coffee for breakfast, then flax/spelt crackers and Vital Choice 3.5 oz can of salmon for lunch.  Been sipping on water with lemon.  I have some tofu, greens, garlic, soy sauce, brown rice waiting for me later in my lunch bag, along with some cut up cantaloupe melon.

I spent the morning at home at my desk writing out more definitive diet plans.  I have a M-W-F-Su plan and a Tu-Th-Sa plan.  I'll share these when I get home from work.

Which brings me to this...being on this diet is HARD when you are a person that works.  Lots of pre-planning, pre-cooking, freezing, packing, all that stuff.  And I get ZERO support from my wife.  That's the saddest thing of all.  But, I keep reminding myself to keep at it.  The benefits outweigh all the rest.
