Girls I can really feel your pain....  
I have lost butter, milk and egg plant for ever....


Maybe not 'forever'... remember, this is an evolving science.

I was really shocked to be put into the "Gatherer" category.  It's just crazy the way we Bs have been separated out into about 3 categories.  Yes, a whole lot of cheeses have been lost to me.

Wow!  I didn't know that.  
Another thing I have noticed is that for the gatherers mutton is beneficial and lamb is a black dot.  When is the last time you saw mutton in the store???  Lamb is all I ever see and I have learned to love my lamb chops.  Just have to cut down on the frequency of those beloved chops, I guess.

Lamb and mutton are superfoods with diamonds for Gatherers.

You should have left the Nomad foods off of your list, since based on your B- non-secretor status you can't be a Nomad.

That's good!  I double-checked and see I made a mistake.  I'm obviously getting my lists confused with my husband's lists.  I'll have to quit doing that, pronto!!

But we're all still B's together  

I think of it like another "typing" category... first there were B's... and then there were B  secretors and B non-secretors.... and now there are B gatherers, B explorers, and B nomads. Sure... other blood types are in those groups too but that makes it even more  like an extended family.

Hi lisalea, i cant copy and paste as it is a visual hand-drawn pages  
sorry!

And Don has suggested I leave off the nomad foods- but  only added nomad food that was common super/ neutral or blackdot with both other types..
And the bias is that i have only bothered to list the foods i would eat, ie left off pigs and rabbits and livers for example, as they do not appeal anyaway.

so, for example if i was o try explain my 'logic' of combining the gatherer, nomad and explorer foodlists: you have to imagine the diamonds and black dots too

..in the meats i have super as lamb, goat and turkey, neutral is beef and kangaroo, avoid is duck.

ie, in herbs i have super scaled: curry, garlic, thyme, tumeric
super-neutral is: parsley, coriander, basil, cardamom, paprika
neutral is fennel, rosemary, sage, licorice, lemongrass, nutmeg, oregano
neutral-avoid: chocolate
avoid: allspice cinnamon, pepper, vanilla, clove, cornstarch, caper, anise, dry mustard

this probably makes no sense to anyone but me lol -
it is only temporary until i have my exact Rh status and consequently then genotype

I like that sentiment Kristen.  

Mutton is a diamond super food for my B+ secretor Nomad son and emphasize for me.  Lamb is diamond for me and emphasize for my son.

He doesn’t want to eat baby animals.   He liked the mutton we had on our two trips to India. The regular grocery stores in USA and the on-line meat places only sell lamb.  I’m going to look for a European or Asian store.  But then I’m concerned with how the animals were raised.  I usually buy my meat from Whole Foods or on-line.

having all the avoids listed is a good way to start until knowing what your genotype is Lisalea. I decided to also list the superfoods etc so I can then mphasise the common ones for all three..

Nomad definately looks like the more flexible and diverse type! We can still hope!

I found a little Euro Market near my HFS.  I asked for mutton not lamb and he took me into the back and showed me the sheep in the freezer, asked me how much I wanted and gave me free spices to cook it in.  He also explained to me how to cook it.  My son made it for dinner tonight.  Absolutely delicious!!!!!  My son cooked it in the oven with vegies that were compliant for us both.

Hi folks,
I'm new here, and this seems like a good place to say "Hello."
... so hello!!

I'm a B Rh+ Secreter - and 99% sure on being a Nomad. I live in Maine and there seems to be very few BTDers or GTDers from this area (I see NH is represented somewhere on the forum, though).

My difficulty is cold weather and craving those 'comfort' foods. When it's cold out, I don't want my food cold - i.e. salads, and salads seem to be the most efficient way to get sufficient "live foods" consumed daily. I miss milk and cream - cream soups are so warming. ...oh, well...

Hello there and welcome WoodsWoman and fellow INFPer  

I do feel your pain there... I miss cream and milk, especially for cooking. But I have been thinking of trying some of the rice and nutmilk recipes that have been floating around as a substitute for milk in cooking. Since cream is not listed on the Nomad diet, I am assuming that it is a neutral for now... until directed otherwise... (or my body gives me a clear message that it is not acceptable to ingest).

Hi there!!
You know, I didn't look specifically for cream on that list - all other forms of cow milk are avoids (or black dot). I had to go back and look. Time for a minor indulgence - it's just noon here and the temp is up to 20 deg. F. - finally, with below zero temps anticipated tonight.

As a fellow INFP, have you had difficulty staying on the diet without others around who are also interested in it? (Maybe you do have others... if so you are very fortunate!!) I think the GTD is making a difference for me - more results, especially weight wise, than I got with the BTD. Don't get me wrong - BTD improved my life immensely, but it didn't do all I had hoped.

I am confused about my Geno-type. Just got the book on friday and not totally done reading it, but after doing the measurements I appear to be a Gatherer. I was thinking that I was a hunter for sure. I have RA, extreme asthma & allergies to just about everything. Also a lot of nervous energy. Although I want to lose weight,(most people tell me I do not need to) and most of my life I have been a big eater with a  thin build. Gatherers are supposed to be full figured and I am not that either. I am a B+, not sure if I am a secretor yet. After reading ER4YT and noticed that after only a couple days of following it strictly my joint pain was gone! So, I really want to make sure I am doing this the right way. Any thoughts?
