May- come to think of it- I was around 130 then, actually, not 145. 145 was my 18 year old weight leaving High School.

I have very small bones. My parents used to call me the human garbage disposal. Before track meets, I'd eat two foot long subs. I never recall a time being full at that age.

I'm adopted. Recently researched my biological family. All are very much obese. Big time bellies. Big time heart disease. I just thought I'd escaped my genes for so long, until Dr D explained it...unfortunately.

May, do you mean you feel better doing BTD, versus swami or geno?
What sucks the most of all of this, is that I'm only 25 and facing major weight/belly gain. Dr. D refers to it as middle age. Either I'm looking at topping out around 50 or it's only just starting for me


I usually mean my individual SWAMI when I say BTD. It's just easier to type three letters   After all, the SWAMI is a combination of the BTD and the Genotype diet.
I think you hit the nail on the head. It's only the lack of exercise. Man, you're only 25. I'm 56. It blows at 56 when one is a Warrior too.      I was just wondering how strict Dr. D has to be to keep his weight down being the same age as me. Or maybe it's because he ate well his whole life, that he doesn't have to work at it?  Maybe he'll  post a comment...  
Just ramp up the exrcise again and you'll probably lose it fast following your SWAMI.

Try not hot yoga. I think not over consuming calories and yoga will be fine.

Yesterday I suggested you exercise for 10 minutes after work. Were you able to find the time/energy to do that yesterday? If so, how did it  go? If not, how about starting that today?

Well if she's a pitta dosha, hot yoga is not recommeded. I'm a pitta/kapha.. I cannot take heat.

Ruthie, those 10 minute work out dvds are really good for people who don't have time to work out!
like some of these workouts.  http://www.collagevideo.com/searchresults.aspx?type=all&search=10+minute+workouts

She can even do the 10 Minute Trainer by that P90 X guy...

I don't think recovering from mild dehydration is good low stress practice. I think warriors need to keep good hydration for their large cardiovascular system.

I know that hot yoga doesn't totally dehydrate you, and that part of the idea is it helps keep you from getting too hot... but my experience is things like that and saunas feel a lot better for Gatherers and Explorers. They don't really have to think about it, it just is good.

I like sitting in a sauna.. Not for a long time. I also like the steam room. Good for the sinuses.
Well she could be a vatta/kapha.. which would be fine for hot yoga.

So, the thing about Hot Yoga is, I don't believe it's dehydrating per se. It focuses 45 mins on breathing and 45 mins of positions, which are slow and easy. Yeah, you sweat, but you sweat toxins only to be replaced by fresh water afterwards. And I find it really comfortable in the room. It's at 105 degrees F, but I'm cold-natured and it doesn't truly feel overwhelming.

Anyways, that's my 2 cents on Hot Bikram.


Mayflower- what's this pitta dosha you speak of?

Do I understand correctly that you -being a Warrior- typically don't sweat much?

I'm a Warrior and I sweat. Daily. Nightly. Live in Alabama, so except for our 2 week winter, I sweat.

No, I am pretty good at sweating; but sweat less after eating healthier. I just don't think it cleans toxins from me. Anything that gives me that impression is totally different (like cranberries).

There's something so calming about the thought of purging dirty sweat once in a while only to replace that water with fresh water. I can't truly see how it could be harmful unless it's stressful to me; however, it's on the contrary.

So, another issue. Fellow Warriors, can you have any kind of tomatoes? I'm from the south and there's few things I can live without.

Besides, becoming a vegetarian, but not eating any potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, cabbage or vinegar,  because they are avoids, just totally blows.

Please advise. I've lived 25 years never noticing any trouble with tomatoes and would desperately enjoy a slice a couple times a week.

Yes a bummer, but look at it from the bright side:

Secretor Warriors like you don't get tomatoes, but do/should get many bread grains (perhaps even wheat?). Many nonnie Warriors here do get tomatoes, but must avoid nearly all gluten-containing grains.. ;)

It's Indian Ayervedic medicine. If you practice yoga, you need to learn about the dosha's and what your's is.

Those are 'nightshade' vegetables. If  you go to any naturopathic doctor, they'll tell you that you shouldn't eat them because they are related to Deadly Nightshade and cause a host of symptoms from upset stomach to arthritis.

Don't feel if you can't give up a slice of tomato a week that you have to drop the diet. Dr. D said following the diet even 70% is excellent. I learned my my chi gong teacher, that there's "Good, Better, Best" You start out with Good and when you feel ready, you can move on to "Better" and so on. If you have some tomatoes..you're still 99% compliant... Some members here do it all the way.  Dr. D said don't worry about the avoids so much as getting as much beneficials into  your diet as you can.

Try Tomatillo's. They are on my good list, and under a lot of genoharmonic combinations. I can say that I don't get a reaction to them like I do Tomatoes.

What "world view" do you have? Mine is reactive, and when I eat some things I know it.

SWAMI says either Thrifty, Reactive, or Receptive, toward the top.

I am reactive, too.

May, according to the DOSHA thing, I was VATA in part one, and my current state of body and mind is KAPHA: Body is 13 and mind is 18. I don't really understand what I'm supposed to do with it

I wouldn't worry about DOSHA, VATA, KAPHA. Those are old hat. Plus they were developed in areas of the world that didn't even have the Warrior GenoType.

What Genoharmonic thing does it recommend for you? There will be a headline name to it (you can also specify, but I'd like to know what it says).

Methylation: One of the prime mechanisms of epigenetic gene regulation, methylation refers to the attachment of a methyl group to the DNA molecule in such a way as to prevent the gene from being ‘read.’ Such genes are considered ‘silenced’.
