I haven't eaten carbs on a daily basis in years but in last three years during the recession developed a once a week pizza and wine habit.  I got up on my high horse, something I think can easily happen to Hunters who are naturally thin.  Yes carbs in all starchy forms especially the nefarious wheat which is truly evil for Os cause weight gain.  I recently tried to eat rice thinking maybe I could as a Hunter.  Wrong.......Os in general can't tolerate grains regularly ever.  You'll be much happier without them & weight loss isn't a concern so long as you maintain muscle mass with exercise.  I'm a little Hunter but my weight is proportional & being little is normal for me.


I agree Sahara, but the muscle mass, spaghetti arms and sticks for legs...hahahah...well it's the truth is there muscle in there somewhere?

I've found that I can tolerate the right carbs.  At this point, I've eliminated all grains (even the pseudo-cereals) and beans.  I do fine with peas, sweet potatoes, and bananas (all sources of starch).  Going completely starch- or sugar-free just isn't doable: I don't have energy without them!

Maybe you just need to do some experimenting to find the right carbs, or maybe you really aren't going to do well with any of them.

I do eat fats and I try to buy Australian lamb which I honestly am trying to like, it's a diamond for me, and I know it's grass fed and when I eat that I don't worry about the fat on the meat.


Linda, I love lamb, but it needs to be cooked correctly or else it tastes terrible.  Most people make the mistake of over cooking their lamb.  It should be cooked medium rare to rare.  Dr. D says that Hunters should eat their meat as close to rare as they can tolerate and fortunately that is how I like all of my meat.

When I cook lamb, such as a leg or a rack, I make a paste in a mini food processor with an entire head of fresh garlic, lots of kosher salt or sea salt and fresh or dried rosemary.  I blend it all together until it is a fairly smooth paste.  I spread it on the lamb and bake until it is rare.  You cannot eat the paste once the lamb is cooked because of the high salt content, but the salt keeps the lamb from losing it's juice while cooking.  If I am cooking lamb chops, I don't bother with the paste but you can make a topping with ghee, garlic and rosemary. I like butterflied leg of lamb on the grill as well.  I marinate that in rosemary, garlic and olive oil.  Do you see a pattern here  

When lamb is cooked correctly, I think it is divine!

There has to be muscle in there or you couldn't move or lift anything...  Some of us have much leaner muscle than others, though...  

My dad used to say that I looked like 5 sticks glued together, so I know what you are talking about.

TJ, I don't like not having them because I never feel full for long after a meal. I can't tolerate bananas, but I'm doing well with the sweet potatoes and I make sure I eat the skin too. I dice them up and steam them...really nice like that, sometimes I add ghee but right now I'm not having it. I'm sure there are some fun ways to prepare them too, like baked wedges in the oven with lots of good oil and salt.  

I get violently ill from pea protein, so I'm afraid of anything with the word pea in it...I'm assuming your talking about green peas, the frozen kind? I do like them but haven't had them since getting so sick from pea protein, same thing happens to me with Lentils... I hope over time I can add carbs back in, and in the meantime I'll have some, like rice cakes for special treats and just know that I'm going to suffer...

Dr D say's in LR4YT that O's should get their carbs from sweet potatoes and root vegetables, does anybody know about root veggies, besides yucca...too much trouble to cook. We have lots of root veggies here but I really don't know much about them.  

Patty that's a great recipe thank you!! That must smell heavenly when it's in the oven with all of that garlic. I don't like Lamb much at all, but I do like my meats rare, and you made it sound delicious. I think I'll get to like it more as I continue to eat it. It's good to know about eating our meats rare... How do you know when it's rare in the oven? Thanks again!!

ABJoe, thanks for that...haha...I'll just have to put some big clothes on my sticks...

Ummm... just recently tried turnips and rutabaga. I wouldn't suggest it for you. The inulin is high and constipating. lots of  'wind'. They are said to be OK for the young and healthy.  You can give it  a try but I'd go slow. Google inulin and see what you find out

Thanks Mother, I didn't know turnips were root vegetables, I love them raw, chopped into small pieces in my salads. I'll spend the day with google...
