Starting a new thread on this....


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Thank you for the link and for the suggestion.  I've thought of indicating nonnie -- I sometimes assume I am a nonnie, like when debating whether to eat avocado.
Question - how does "assuming you are a nonnie" help when "debating whether to eat avocado"? Won't you either react to it or not?
I am "supposed" to be a nonnie but I cannot seem to tolerate avocadoes (or coconut oil) but do tolerate cabbage very well... That leads me to strongly suspect my secretor status was wrong...
Interested in what your reaction to avocadoes is?

I am not sure it is that clear cut.

I know O secretors that do fine sometimes if they eat avocado and not other times. It seems to be somewhat related to how much they eat and how recently they have eaten avocado.

Good point C_sharp... I think it is probably that way for a lot of people, seeing as avocados are associated with histamine levels... That's what makes it so tricky to know with reactions, seeing as they can come & go, depending on what else you have eaten that day, or even the day before?!

The glycemic index for us here is less important per se, but it helps to sort foods with it in mind.. Swami or the book diets all have a different angle, some things change and change over time also, others stay the same, but SUDDENLY you may realize that you don't need that much sugar any more .. sort of get weaned down to manageable portions..

When I started the diet what was important for ME was never to be hungry.. I have a fear of it.  I ate to be full a pound of meat meant nothing as did anything else as long as it was on my Beneficial list.. I would not advise it, but it worked for me then to still drop 20 pounds.. a long time ago.. youth helped..

I think the HEALING your gut/intestines/organs, all starts in the brain.. eat enough good stuff and the body will benefit.. slowly..   This is a life time journey.. No one should follow any dictates to 100% but continue to use your brain to discern what works and what does not.. only you can be the judge and jury on that.. for instance just for the fun of it, read up on the Trehalose Complex thread.. It is long, but worth to see the different reactions we all have to it..

For me TC makes it possible for the world to be a good place, and that is a big thing..  it works on me emotionally.. others feel better while still others sleep better..

Here: nothing is a dogma, it is what you wish to make out of it.. for you.. so play with Swami, or the other books and adjust your own lists with likes and dislikes, just know that avoids are listed for some reason.. be fair- if you cheat, and feel lousy, don't blame the diet, - if you are compliant and still don't feel progress, then look at all the labels.. be honest and you will find what food is good for you/ culturally and emotionally, and physically. Time will tell,  and is on your side..   just listen to the body...


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I understand that O secretors are supposed to avoid avocado.  But nonnies are allowed to have it.  So if I see an avocado, which I want to eat, I assume I am a nonnie, thereby allowing myself to eat it.

I experience no reaction to avocado.  Then again, the only reaction I experience to coffee (an avoid) is increased energy and alertness -- a good thing.  But I don't think it's as simple as that.  BTW, Coconut oil produces a full feeling in my gut.  Not quite bloating, though.  Thanks for asking!
