I have just been "Swami-tized" and have a question about the black dots. It says (in part) avoid for minimum of 60 days for washout time. Then can carefully reintroduce these foods back into the diet.

My question is - after this time period, are these foods considered neutral then, and can be eaten accordingly?

Thanks

No it is not neutral,and if you are battling an illness or a weight,it is better to avoid it, until you recover.

unless you find they don t agree with you.....or make you gain weight, if weight were an issue......it is all very individualized.

I treat black dots as neutral except when Im feeling poorly.  No black dots when Im exposed to cold or flu viruses, when I get bit or stung by an insect, or when my knee (former injury) acts up.  All other times I dont fret about their inclusion.

Thanks to all for your input... weight is not a problem, but some foods might not agree with me after this 60+ day time period... e.g. Kamut has been black-dotted now, where under the BTD for Diabetes, it was neutral previously.

If you areworking on intestinal healing (white lines, digestive issues) then avoiding gluten containing grains such as kamut may be useful.

that would make sense, as other non-wheat grains, specifically amaranth, Quinoa and Teff are now listed as superfoods for me... I need my grains, being a runner.

Interesting, thanks. I'll keep this in mind after my 60+ day period. Seems like a sensible approach.

I treat black dots as black dots always.  But then, I'm a non-secretor and have a more delicate balance in my health.  Black dots are what I fall back on in those occasional times that I'm eating our or at someone else's house and I have few choices.  Then I will freely eat the black dots and be glad they are not full-blown toxins!  

But I never keep them in my own house.

I agree with Victoria. I wouldn't consider a black dot the same as a neutral after the washout period ends. I still think of them as "occasional foods."

I am like Redlilac I try to avoid them right now- but Ill treat them more neutral later and If I eat out I treat them as neutral as well
but then again I am an explore with a mind of my own
a bit stubborn   and not very sensitive

There is no denying that black dots are food items that provide nutrients and bulk to our diet, but my understanding is that they do that in an unbalanced way for our types and may adversely affect our systems if we abuse their use.  I treat them as black dots always, and like Victoria and others here, I only resort to their use in the odd unavoidable occasions when my choices are very limited. I sure to follow these with a few meals of only SFs. to boost my system up.

okay, don't keep it in the house, may have during unavoidable occasions, occasional foods, or when I have limited choices it is then. Sounds good, thanks to all.
