Shock Henriette B Sec is an Explorer! I see it in her description...


How lovely to see you back   always enjoyed your straight forward blogs a lot.

Yep I was   when I found out I am an explorer -while lots of the description fits me pretty well- the food doesn´t   I simply can´t kick out so many former B bennies- sorry- and the diet messed up my bloodsugar and my stomach - so I guess I am just a weird subtype of an explorer    And while it is true that I am physically strong I am also at least 25-30 pounds overweight  
So I am simply taking the best from the GTD and using by lovely B diet the rest of the time.

B gatherer here..there do not seem to be many of us- at least not here on the boards, and perhaps it is because you really need your secretor and RH stats to be sure of your genotype. I am thinking a few more shall turnip, ah turn up  

looking fwd to your blogs..

I follow the Explorer diet mostly but incorporate some B-non foods. There are a few Explorer foods that I shy away from still because their status changed so drastically between the two diets (ie. lentils, pomegranates, pine nuts). Will need more convincing to go there. Guess this is backwards to what you other B Explorers (all 2 of you) are doing, but it's still a version of "doing it my way". I don't, for a moment, deny my quirkiness.

Funny enough I have put some of my  B avoids into my diet like: lentils, pinenuts, Artichokes - and I have not a single bad reaction to these foods.
Tomato and chicken are still not my friends.
But I guess he is right about me properly being a weak secretor  
- however I do fit the secretor group better than the nonnie group...'

We are all individuals
- and maybe I just need my yoghurt and egg to be  fine - even as an explorer

My secretor status made me a gatherer, it helped confirm that some commonly available vegetables   really do not agree with me. so i have now given up broccoli and cauliflower! Anyway, I have lost weight in the last few months, come down a dress size   so I am happy with that.

I am still not sure about too much dairy for me, I started eating cottage cheese (and have been having some Red Leicester yummy ). I try to eat less butter because now I can tell it clogs my sinuses up but it is hard to give up completely. I shall try not to eat dairy before the wedding in case it makes me too bloated.

And I tried grapefruit, but that seemed to give me headaches like lemon does, so had to cross that off the list.  

Still, I'm doing quite well in the shops at the moment with fresh peaches and nectarines to eat  

I measured my sister and it seems she could be a gatherer or a nomad, depending on secretor status. (my mother is a nomad)

I am a yogurt, egg, blueberry, halibut, salmon and red wine-eating Explorer. All black dot foods that I elevated in status right from the beginning, making sure that all are organic (except for the red wine). Would love to become a brussel sprout-eating Exp too but hesitate to go there without more info. In some ways you are lucky to have reactions to foods. I've consumed avoids all my life and have only ever been able to recognize ill effects from coffee and soy. However, I am noticing changes in mood, energy and skin quality since starting the BTD last November so obviously the right foods are going down the hatch now. But if anyone asked me to be specific, I couldn't, except to read a list of foods from the books.

Dr. D. is quite liberal when it comes to his guidelines, both in LR4YT and the GTD. He expects us to find our own way in this strange new land.

I only bought the book in May, and I've been dancing in and out of it, experimenting with a few avoids (tomatoes are still an avoid, and I really need to stick to that!)(And funny: I was never an orange juice drinker, now an avoid. When I was a small child, this was the cause of many a breakfast table scene).

But, as many of you know, I've been a BTD adherent for over a decade. It's clear I "do better" without milk, however. Etc.

How about if one of you puts a survey up for B's? Calling all Forum B's: Tell us your Genotype! Then we can have the percentages in front of us, something I'll bet Lola already has, from those who've registered them into their little Bio Boxes...

Oh, and Lola: Wow! What a feature that Recipe World is!!!

Hi Bees!

Gosh, I'm just not here all that often, and I'm struggling to bring another Blog to the site... .

I did mention on another thread last week or so that I've been losing weight. It's kind of a hybrid diet I'm doing, and the pounds are dropping off (holding at minus 17), as are the inches, especially from the belly . I read where Ellie dropped down a dress size too. This is also exciting!

Any of you Bees losing weight? It'd be interesting to read how Bees, in particular, do so.

Nice  to see you  
Sounds great - congratulations  

Well I am loosing weight right now  
On my personal low carb/high fat version of Nomad diet - I am not prefect yet ( economy and work makes that impossible) - but I am slowly mowing to a 99% normad diet - with only very little grains- sweet fruits and sugar.

I have noticed that the coconut oil( virgin) + eating more butter and ghee really ha mad a difference in my diet .

I've been using ghee quite a bit, too. And somewhat less olive oil. I'm also eating virtually no yeasted bread/cake/cookies. And, yes, still holding at minus-17.

Well I am still using my semi paleo/normad version  
( No grains, sugar - limited fruits ) from monday to friday ( a little in the weekend as well as a beer or a glass red wine)

and I seem to loose weight still about 250- 500 gram a week - but that is fine with me- I started with more.

I tend to keep my levels of carbs less than 100 gram pr day
Keep my protein around 80 gram - and dont worry about fats   use whatever I like...

The breakdown of fats for me is ;
30 % virgin coconut oil (Use for frying, snacks, smothies)
30 % butter or ghee( baking -only weekends , on cooked veggies and frying)
15 % virgin olive oil (on salads or mayo)
15 % macdamia nut oil on salads or mayo

Sorry, folks. I can't seem to find B & I II. So, I'm not quite sure where to direct the thread.

I'm wondering about the ol' B clan! How y'all 'er doin'.
My current blog is on B personality, to an extent, and I'd like the feedback of my buddies on this. Let's sit around the B campfire and chew on this matter amongst ourselves as in days of yore.

Happy 2010, btw.

PS What's the "Message Icon" menu under the name of this thread?
PPS. How could I have located the old "B & Individuality II" thread? I went to  Sticky and it wasn't where I looked. I also searched for that title, and it didn't show up...
Will I ever get the hang of this?? Sounds like another topic for B personality discussion?

Thank you, O Lola One, ever ready to fix the world
OK. So I thought (2 posts back) to revive the thread/campfire with you other B's of any or no genotype.  Again, I ask for something of a pow-wow on B personality: Who's up for it? Chime in!

I'm totally up for a Pow Wow on blood type B and all blood type personalities. SanteJ, I just read your new blog and enjoyed it.  I also try to guess people's blood type by observing them. It's a fun game.  My mom, brother, and grandfather are all blood type B and have had lots of crazy stress in their life but they are balanced and cool in an emergency situation.  They recover well from stress and are good at finding fun things to do. As an AB, it was good for me to be surrounded by so many B's.  My B family is dependable and always on-time!
