G-day everyone   - I'm delighted to have found this site and real excited to see what I can achieve.

As a newcomer to the diet I have discovered I'm a hunter. I would just like to get some information from you about Soya and Legumes, and what effect it has for the hunter type. For some time I have been eating these foods so was wondering what problems this could have for me in the long term.

All the best

Soy is an avoid for O's in general and Hunters in particular, I believe.

What types of legumes are you eating?

In general, O's and Hunters do best with animal proteins.  Nuts, nut butters and eggs are ok for O's as well.

Been eating Kidney, Bortelli, Cannelloni, Pinto and Green beans quite alot. I've only just noticed the lectin factor also, which I know can be troublesome. The reason I'm asking is because I've noticed everywhere that Legumes and soya get a good press, and the Japanese consume alot of these foods and they're considered a real heathy nation.

Another thing that is troubling me is acohol.. I do like a good pint of lager at weekends, so was wondering if there was an alcoholic drink that didn't include gluten?... lol

run a swami and find out which legumes are best for you

try a secretor test first

and let swami compute your genotype for you!
good luck!

I can only speak for myself, since I am on the genotype diet and have a SWAMI, but I am a hunter and kidney beans are an avoid for me.  Cannelloni and pinto beans are a neutral and I believe green beans are rated differently, as a live food rather than vegetable protein,  However, I recently had food allergy testing and my reactions were somewhat different than my SWAMI.  Kidney beans remain an avoid, pinto beans and green beans are now an avoid for me as well.  Since kidney and pinto beans were the only beans tested and I reacted to both, I have decided to limit my consumption of all beans.  I was never a big bean eater anyway.  I recently tried black beans and while I like the taste, I was hungry very soon after consuming them.  

Have you read the GenoType Diet book and is that how you determined you are a Hunter?

Yeah, I borrowed the book from someone and did all the tests thoroughly with help from my family, where no doubt came to a hunter.

I can easily give up beans and soya... But my biggest problem is wheat. At some stage in a day I always eat a slice or two of bread. Especially in the morning with an egg, so this is where I'm struggling most. Yesterday I had an omlette with some veggies, but this morning I couldn't think of anything else, so had eggs on granary toast. I would love to cut gluten out of my diet but it's so hard. I've tried gluten free bread before but it was like eating cardboard  

Would love to hear how others cope without bread

use the advanced calculator only, since you know your blood type.....finding out your secretor status might be an idea

Soy & legumes are difficult for many Os to digest.  I do not include soy in my diet at all and few legumes.

I'm sure I could manage not eating legumes or soya.. It's just wheat that is my greatest problem, especially breakfast ideas. Most cereals seem to be out as they either contain wheat or oats, so what other options are there.. I'm constantly eating eggs but there's only so much you can do with them.

Does anyone eat fish for breakfast?  lol

We love what we call "Japanese breakfast" in my house... perfect for Os (and most everyone else)

Rice of your choice topped with an egg (soft boiled or lightly fried or poached) and a bit of salmon or tuna, garnished with nori or other seaweed... tamari if you are allowed it.

You'll never miss the bread!

(other grains work too)

I eat fish most days for breakfast. Days that I don't it's bison, beef or turkey. Eggs in my diet tend to be hard boiled snacks or on a salad. I actually rarely think of them as breakfast food anymore. Now that I think about it, that's strange.

The Japanese culture has a tradition of fermenting their soy and bean products. They take a lot of care doing this because they know about the phytates, etc. present in these foods.
