Do other 'hunter's eat millet, just wondering if anyone knows if millet affects thyroid function?
also, which mushrooms do you eat? oyster or ennoki?
how about anchovies? I noted they were on avoid list when I read one of Dr D's books.
thanks for any contributions.

I eat ennoki, but only when I get to the Asian market to shop (infrequently). I would like to have them more often.

Millet does contain goitrogen (considered to be a bad factor for thyroid function) but latest knowledge shows that wheat is worst for thyroid function and millet (despite goitregen) is good for many people.

Thanks, Kumar for your comment.  Wheat was a big part of my diet for a long time (unfortunately), I also was on macrobiotic diet for a while, which is when things got even worse - in terms of neuro-endocrine and digestive function declining, as heavy use of grains and legumes, and perhaps the problems with proteins due to slower metabolism.
I just don't want others to go through such hardships, esp other type O and GT 'hunter' people.
Today, stocked up on veggies, bok choy, Chinese broccoli, yellow squash, broccoli, pumpkin, swede (rutabaga), ginger, garlic.  Some salmon was on sale in the supermarket, and I will still stop off at the fish shop for fresh fish soon, plus chicken for my delic chicken & veggie soups which are helping a lot.

I tried the macrobiotic diet a few years ago, too. I kept waiting for it to feel good! Now I understand that it was so wrong for me and my body!
Thanks for the info on where to buy hunter-safe mushrooms! I've missed mushrooms

Millet is actually a superfood for me (explorer), but whenever I eat it, I get GI issues. I have heard that it looks really similar to wheat and in people whose guts are messed up, their bodies sometimes mistake it for wheat?

I'm not SWAMIed, so maybe given my history, it wouldn't be a superfood, but that's been my experience. I do much better on the GT 4 Explorer diet than Hunter diet, so no clue. I don't think I'm a nonnie, since I do poorly and get migraines and overall body pain without some of the beneficial grains (mostly just brown rice, though).

Interesting misspudding, as millet is supposed to be a superfood for my Hunter husband, but he feels better on rice?! Mind you I always forget to rinse/soak it, as I use it when I don't have time to cook rice!!

By "looks similar to wheat" I meant that the protein structure is similar? This is where I read it:

I felt very tired and experienced cramping/stabbing pains in the thyroid when I consumed millet. When I checked it out on the internet, it mentioned that it contained a goitregen and was not recommended for someone with thyroid problems. That was a loud message that my body was sending me and would be foolish of me to not respect that! Everyone is an individual and common sense should prevail.

Too bad as I really like millet and was making a nice gluten free flat bread with it. While SWAMI is personalized and I do get it as a beneficial, I opt to not eat it. I do well with rice & amaranth and use those in my baking with great results.
