I'm truly glad and grateful for the Swami but there are things in my report that I wonder if other people have run across.

I admit I'm resisting the need to understand the logic of all these lists (though it's strongly in my nature to poke at things) I am confused about one or two things I've noticed so far.

For example, chicory is listed both as a diamond beneficial and a black dot avoid. Cherry juice is a beneficial but actual cherries are a neutral. Any similar experiences, any thoughts?

Also, I can vouch for the fact that depression makes it easier to throw away foods you used to eat.

Are you sure one is not a case of one being 'Chicory' the plant and the other one being 'Chicory Root'?  They usually have two different values, that is normal and logical,  but do not ask me to explain the technicalities of it.  My intuition tells me is right though.

If you are talking about 'Chicory' the plant appearing in two different lists, that is wrong and you should report that as a bug in the bugs report thread.

Cherry juice is a beneficial but actual cherries are a neutral. Any similar experiences, any thoughts?


This is normal, they are two different states of the fruit. with different values. Processing of any form, even squeezing a fruit to extract its juice, producing a different valued nutrient.

And yes, I can imagine feeling better about getting rid of something suspected of getting me in the down road ...  But, cheers, we are here now on the road to recovery.

You could certainly have a juice wind up with a different rating than a fruit. However, as Cristina says, if you have a double entry for Chicory, I'd appreciate hearing more about it.

Cristina is right -- it's not a double entry. My bad.

juice versus fruit
Dr D.
    Many fruit juices are higher in specific nutrients (flavones, lignans, etc) than the whole fruit.

No worries, very easily done.  It is good to clarify these things though.  Enjoy your Swami!

Lola, thanks for posting about the difference between fruits and fruit juices.

A lot of people new to the diets ask me and now I have an answer.

One of the things that keeps me coming back to the forums.
