Arrowhead Mills spelt flakes. I can buy them at my regular grocery store and the Health Food Store. My spelt bread is Rudi's Organic Bakery, which I got at the local health food store




Thank-u jax129

you could make your own spelt flakes or any flakes you wish with those!
then toast them and you have yourself flakes for breakfast!

Homebrew Beer supply shops sell them.
I would imagine that companies, like Lehmans.com , can source them as well.

hello everyone.  This is my first post.  I have had er4yt for quite awhile but I was a vegetarian and it didn't fit.  Fast forward 7 years or so and I now have gone back to eating some meats.  Felt I needed more protein intuitivly after 23 years as a vegetarian.  I picked up LR4YT and yesterday got genotype. All within about 24 hours.  It makes a lot of sense but the more I learn the more confused I get.I wanted to "gather" as much info as possible...hmmm (interesting)  I also joined the gen type board and did the calculations today, not sure if I am a gatherer or nomad.  High on both. But lean a bit more toward gatherer. I am also trying to figure out what to add, what to leave out and I gained a pound yesterday. I deffinetly need more info and more time.  But I actually feel better. I am B+ do not know secreter status and I think I am a gatherer.  I am drinking my grapefruit juice with flaxses oil...Cheers to 2008

welcome!!
I d try and get tested first to see if you are a secretor or a non secretor, perhaps that will decide your real GT.

Welcome Heidi Joy!  It's good to see another B, and I agree that your secretor status is the next best step for you.  Congratulations that you are learning about both your blood type and genotype.  Very courageous.

Welcome Heidi Joy.  Definitely get your secretor status tested.  It helps to answer some of the uncertainties.

thank you for all the welcoming messages.  i do know that I am not RH- as my mother was and since I was her 2nd child I know that she said at my birth they were concerned that I may be. but I was not.  Is that rh+ factor the same as being b+ or are they seperate factors.  I know the book probably explains it all but I am on info overload.  Thanks.

i am going o get my rh status confirmed (I never have, just anecdotal from my mum,) -as the calculations are swinging all over the place depending on this factor for me.

I am tall, moved/changed careers around allot, warty and different sized breasts, tons of white lines in fingerprints like a nomad..

caffeine can keep me awake, heavy periods like explorer, and nothing really gatherish, but it has come up with a score of 6..

boh D2 fingers are 90mm, both D4 are 85.
torso greater than legs.
non secretor..
spade teeth.
square head.
    

i shall return...

yes i was actually
which was lucky --> i didnt even have to meausre my torso measurements because all 4 options were gatherer. it just seams weird to be a gatherer thats all because my bottom leg is actually longer than my top leg, and i dont have that "full" body type, myne was the more muscular one!

hmm well I guess..the gtd takes the btd a step further, incorporating more than our blood type and taking into consideration our genes, which further individualizes our diet..thats why some B's can be a nomad, a gatherer, or explorer...some people do just fine on the btd...but by fine tuning our diets to the gtd guidelines we are better enabled to prevent diseases and health issues that our genotypes are prone to...i'm looking at it as I improved on the btd..but I'm not quite there yet..so the gtd might be the last piece to the puzzle clearing up the rest of my health problems and balancing out my body..not sure if that helps at all lol but just my thoughts :O)

ya thanks that does help a bit,

i just still cannot get over the changes lol, and also how my leg lengths and finger lengths could totally change what foods i could eat.

i think ive done rele rele well on btd, and i cannot imagine getting rid of brocolli, carrots, cauliflower and my newly found kale, same with mozzerela and feta and yogurt.

does anyone else have any suggestions on how to incorporate the two??

if you have some health issues you need to clear up..you only need to avoid most of those for 3-6 months..with that said you need to make changes and individualize your plan for what best fits you...if you do fine on those foods and are not looking for more weight loss or are facing an illness then I would just follow the moderation rule..however if at some point you become ill or need to lose a few lbs then think of it as you have the resources you can resort to

I have not read the geno-type diet book so I can not really comment, but it does worry me that there are so many differences between BTD and GTD.
