I ate one thick hershey bar every single day for the last ten years. I haven't had one since last friday. That cocoa/ghee/agave mixture has replaced the hershey. I probably had a half cup the first three days but the next three days...much less..all i seem to need is 3 to 5 teaspoons and i have a feeling that my desire will be less and less. I'm really beginning to think that the desire for chocolate is masking a desire for fat. Yesterday I made the mixture with tumeric/ghee/agave and used it as a dipping sauce on the vegetables and got the same satisfaction as with the cocoa. I know some of you will think i'm a little freaky and this isn't for everyone...but it is so satisfying to me that it takes away any cravings for more.  I'm a firm believer that if you crave something...its probably not good for you. On the truely freakier side of my nature..i've even thought of going on a little fast..and eating nothing for a couple of days but the ghee/agave mixture with any spice of my choice(or compliance).  Kind of a precursor to some heavy duty weight loss. Actually, thinking of this limited diet makes me want to throw up. It just takes my appetite away and thats how i'm going to lose weight. Thanks again, ribbit...you've helped to create a monster.

cozzete I like the idea of ghee, turmeric and agave on some veges! steamed spinach maybe?

i found this really suprisingly good raw-cocoa single-origin chocolate made here, the one i tried has maca powder in it, it was like the fudgiest choc bar ever, swoon, new love!

the ingreedients are: Organic raw cacao butter, Organic raw cacao powder, Organic agave syrup (dark), Organic lúcuma powder, Organic maca powder, Himalayan crystal salt.

gatherers esp; check it out!

Cozzete, no O will do badly on compliant veggies and meat.  Fasting does the soul good, but it doesn't take away an appetite (in my experience).  I think lots of ghee is great too, to help you feel full, but maybe the rice cake isn't such a great idea.  How about reducing carbs (and no more chocolate bars!  The sugar in one chocolate bar may be enough to keep your weight up).  How about a raw diet combined with your daily meat?  Like fry up a steak in ghee and then a little later drink a green juice (wanna talk about appetite reduction!  Wow--that takes mine away right there!)  When I do raw, as an A, I can get away with just the veggies and fruits and some nuts and cheese.  But I realize you Os need meat, and maybe you can combine the two.  Just do your meat before your juicing so the meat stops the stomach acid production, not the juice.  You want meat on your tummy first so it benefits from all that acid.

I was feeling lousy the other afternoon and really wanted a nap, but having small children who weren't tired, I couldn't.  I remembered that a green juice always perks me up, so I juiced kale, cilantro and an apple together.  It wasn't any more than about 4 oz, but it made me feel fantastic the rest of the day.  I actually got a room cleaned.

ouuu we have fasted and it just made us want to eat more.  Even my wife who does not have an eating addiction issue like me.  be careful... it can backfire.  but everyone is different... some seem to do well on it.  I think I remember reading somewhere that O's should not fast... but can't remember where.  

and man that chocolate bar looks great!  i think i'm going to order one!!!

P.s.   why did you say especially 'Gatherer's'?  It looks ok for a Hunter ??

Even I am getting into chocolate now, as a Gatherer (it is a diamond superfood, afterall).  Only I prefer mine in the form of pure cocoa powder, which I then add to all manner of fruit smoothies.  Some come out better than others *lol*!

At some point, I am going to try a "mole" sauce on a savory poultry dish or the like.  According to gcg, a good mole sauce really rocks.


I want to be a gatherer !

hey there.. only have the gatherers on the top of my head at the time
as maca and lacuma powder are not rated I treat them as neutral -- may be ok for hunters (and gatherers for that matter?!) , but I am not certain?
certainly is delicious chocolate though! they also supply agave syrups and raw cocoa powder of v. good quality.

a question from a total chocaholic...because I'm confused by what I've read on this thread.

In the book, chocolate is an OK food for me, obviously not milk as dairy is an avoid, but I notice reading the ingredients on my dark chocolate that it has soy lecithin.  Is this the same thing as soy (which is an avoid)? or something else?

any clarification much appreciated...

lecithin is fine
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?220

so is chocolate, understood as cocoa, or made from permissible ingredients
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?113

try make your own compliant one
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?515

soy isn t an avoid being an O secretor
but that s beside the point....

Well sadly the shipping cost is horrid!  Can't go there...  

I make our own anyway but it's not the same texture as these and  you have to keep Katy's in the freezer.  But that's ok.

thanks for the clarification Lola, I got myself confused becauase soya oil is an avoid...

I also think I'm a Hunter...and soya is definitely an avoid for those...not that I like/eat it much anyway.  

I'm still rather confused about the Genotype diet, and haven' t quite got my head around it, it's somewhat contradictory, so am stickingt to the BTD for the moment.
