Well after 10 months of a strict Hunter diet I switched to Paleo diet for the better.
I dropped all grains and beans. I do not need to lose weight but I did it for health and I feel much better.No more bloating and carb/sugar swings and cravings.  I also eat coconut and avocado almost everyday and try to keep my carbs low at around 20% of calories. I ditched all veg oils and switched to tallow,ghee,coconut and red palm oil.My bowels finally like me again!

My wife suffers with IBD for 1.5 years but is now in total remission by following a very low carb diet from the book Breaking The Vicious Cycle.We also get raw goats milk that she makes into yogurt but dairy is not for me.
Hope this info helps someone.

Well, we are just discussing the issue of a grain free Hunter (with a few Nomads in there) diet: http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?m-1228431284/ Thanks for sharing .

How long have you been on Paleo? Did you ever do BTD? What blood type is your wife?

I would like to be able to go grain free as I love not experiencing cravings ! but I would love to stay under Dr. D'Adamo's philosophy.
But it is interesting for me to know that you still had cravings after 10 month of a strict adherence.

Please keep us posted.

I been strictly Paleo for 3 months. My wife is O-.
Never tried the BTD but did try higher carb Paleo before GTD.
GTD helped me learn about my body and helped me fix some things but eating rice and beans is a real slippery slope that just lead to bloating\constipation and cravings.
My body loves low carb/high fat which I have never tried before because I always thought low carb was for overweight people.Getting my carb cravings banished has been an enormous victory for this reformed sugar addict.
I highly recommend anyone with digestive or weight issues look into low carb.

Sounds good! You are a paleo-hunter!
Many Os don't do well with grains, but still do BTD/GTD without grains.  As I get older, I find I don't do as well with beans, either.
I hope you can share more of your experiences with us.

I would add that I dropped the tropical fruits also.The last time I tried to eat a banana I couldn't finish it because it was disgustingly sweet tasting after a period of lower carb eating. I stick to mostly berries now.

Getting to know our own bodies is a truly empowering thing.  

I think especially right around the mid-thirties, the metabolism will tend to start slowing down a little.  This seems like an especially good time to fine-tune what really works for us and getting honest with ourselves about what is not working/never did really work.

I hear you on the tropical fruits, Christopher.  And again, it may be different for different people, but the fruit that makes me feel the best are the berries that are superfoods on my GTD.  



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Jumping on the fruit discussion, I'm excited to focus on my GTD fruits, I of course loved the variety on BTD, but I can't ignore everytime I ate apples I got an acidic stomach.  Not they are black dots for me. Seems like GTD is more accurate for me.

One is to survive (paleo) the other to change our genes so that we live longer and better (Hunter)

I would say the only difference is cutting out legumes and grains altogether,other than that it was just fine tuning the Hunter diet for me.
The premise of a Paleo diet is to only eat the foods that were around when the Homo Sapein Sapein genotype evolved...pure hunt and gather. Its really just a broad concept rather than a diet.

What do you usually eat for breakfast Christopher? I can so relate to what you are saying! The only grains I now eat are 2 ricecakes with a boiled egg for breakfast. Even the starchy veg seem to put weight on. I do have snacks of protein on waking, 11am and 4pm usually tinned fish in olive oil or cold chicken or turkey - it seems to keep me happy.

What I have discovered is that it is crucial for me to eat a hearty breakfast.
it might be liver sausage and eggs cooked in tallow with a cup of blueberries and coconut oil or 6-8 oz of fatty grassfed ground meat with a sauteed carrot and an avocado.
My wife is addicted to homemade beef jerky with her morning eggs and a dash of homemade yogurt and almond bread which you can find a recipe for here

Yes I eat sweet potato but not white,they are a different family(nightshade). Paleo is more of a concept than specific diet but yams/sweet pots/tubers are permitted.Winter squash is great with ghee or coconut oil.If I was trying to lose weight I may not eat them.I also like turnips and rutabagas cooked in the leftover strained juice from the crock pot after a nice bone in chuck roast has been cooked,marrow is delicious.
  Also apples aren't a Hunter food but they are local and in season and if I peel them then they don't bother me at all.We are fortunate to be able to get almost all of our food localy through a co-op....grassfed chuckroast for 6$ per lb and ground beef for 4$.

I'm an O- like your wife and I also have IBD although I've been much less symptomatic since I started the BTD years ago.  Interesting that you say she makes her own goat's milk yogurt.  I occasionally eat goat's milk yogurt and also water buffalo yogurt.  Typical breakfast for me is 2 organic eggs scrambled in ghee with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast before serving, a tiny piece of manna bread with almond butter and a little cranberry pepper jelly.

This is very interesting... I'm assuming it's the  "Bread Recipe" as there are several there.

Does it rise at all or?

Ribbit have  you tried this?

OH MY GOODNESS - I really needed to read this thread.
I am a Hunter and cannot seem to drop weight. The only way is to go grain free.

Christopher - what do you like to drink in the mornings? I assume you don't drink coffee?

I have also noticed that the only way I drop weight is to avoid the tropical fruits - berries are the way to go.
It just seems strange because bananas are a diamond food for me!
Christopher - do you eat flaxseed? I make that bread and it is the only bread I can eat. It is made of flaxseed and eggs/oil and water

I have yet to do the grain free approach but in the past, this has worked out really well for me - with one flaw though. I am not sure how good my energy levels were.
