Might be too much fiber for you.

Hmm maybe so.  It's strange because I thought pumpkin was supposed to cure diarrhea/constipation...at least in dogs/cats. Guess it is not always the case for humans. I think I'm gonna cut it out of my diet at least temporarily because I can't stand the horrible stomach aches.

Problem solved - my stomach is still uneasy from the food poisoning (from the lettuce last week) so everything I eat makes it uneasy but ESPECIALLY the pumpkin (probably because of the fiber).  I shouldn't have jumped to conclusions.  Hopefully I get better soon. I need a probiotic.

I got food poisoning from Red Lobster once.. years ago when my kids were small.. way before BTD.
I had shrimp (avoid) fra Diavlo (also avoid) After the initial feeling like I was going to die, ..I was sick for a month .  I had pain in my stomach I was on a bland diet for awhile..

Wow, that sucks I never got food poisoning that badly but one year (about three years ago), I accidentally food poisoned myself three times within the course of only a few months which is the main reason I have digestive issues today (leaky gut etc.) other than abusing my body with fast food sometimes.  I've gotten food poisoning from everything but beef now!

I did find this interesting though - http://www.huffingtonpost.co.u.....tics-_n_1470327.html. So I've just been eating crushed, raw garlic on light rye crackers with olive oil and sea salt like it's candy and it's the only thing that makes me feel better.  And fortunately, I find it extremely delicious too.  It's the only thing that doesn't turn my stomach to mush.

I love garlic. I'm Italian   so I am a garlic lover. I did find if I ate it raw, I would get a stomach ache from it.  I put garlic on everything and I cook with it fresh. Might be why I don't get food poisoning much...well especially since I've been on the BTD.  All of the things I got sick from were avoids. I can count on one hand how many times I've had food poisoning. I suspect being a lover of garlic has save me a few times that I didn't know of   Thanks for the link

I must be Italian at heart then (rather than by blood) because I love garlic too It's great learning how something so yummy is also so good for us

I've been leaning toward a vegan type of diet again. This time though I'm doing it while giving up gluten..which is really hard. I used dairy to make up for the lack of wheatness in my life...   I just don't do too well on dairy, being born allergic to it.. I don't think I ever really out grew my allergy. My nose still gets stuffed up when I partake..  I'm also reading about bovine leukemia viruses and lymphoma viruses being transmitted to humans via cow's milk       I'm still eating eggs right now..

What are the Warriors here doing?  My only beneficial meat is fish.

My only beneficial meat is fish, but I do eat a lot of beans/legumes/nuts, and some cheese, though I limit myself to feta (a bennie). I also eat a fair amount of plain yogurt (diamond), both savory and sweet-ish (using dried chopped dates or dried unsulphured apricots). I'm still off added sweeteners for the most part, though I did make a decadent dessert last night using avocados, unsweetened cocoa powder, unsweetened carob powder, date sugar, and soy milk. I don't have a problem with soy or gluten, so that makes things easier for this Warrior.

Avacados and cocoa? I never heard of that being a dessert..   Well on the yogurt, Dr. D has just "yogurt" listed so that could also mean almond yogurt or soy yogurt. They even have coconut yogurt but I can't have coconut.  

I'm down to 1-2 servings of wheat a week. I gave up dairy.. though I love paneer cheese so I know I will have some on occassion due to my love of Indian cuisine.

I'm pretty sure (at least in my swami report) that yogurt is of the cow milk variety..."Minimize your use of processed cheeses, cream cheese, high butterfat forms of milk and cream."

Who can share their experience with this product? My concerns are what amount of caffeine from the yerba mate and green tea it my have. I don't do well with stimulants, and would like some feedback.

While we're at it, I got the Warrior 3 pack with the CLA and the catalyst too. Any comments or feedback will be appreciated. I don't want to take them until I can find out some more info.

My concern isn't about any blood or genotype, it's because or personal health problems, that stimulants make worse.

I wasn't going to ask this until later, because I wanted to get my first question out of the way, but seeing as my thread got moved to page 25 of this already enormous thread and most people wont read it now anyway.......

Any comments on the cancer causing properties of the CLA formula are welcome as well.

Hi everyone. I have been reading the geno type book and did my measurements and questions yesterday and appear to be a warrior.

I have been sticking to the type a food list for 5 weeks now and have found it relatively easy. Thing is in the geno book it says no chicken or turkey for warriors so I am now looking at giving this a go till Christmas (will have chicken on Christmas Day).  I need to loose about 5 kilos and still cant get my head around eating so much fruit. Has anyone found the warrior diet shifts those kilos?

My swami recommends 1 serve of turkey/duck/cornish hen/squab which are neutrals and ostrich is a diamond/per week, not chicken. I will most likely have a small amount of turkey on Christmas day but I know for me tofu is a better choice of protein.  Turkey is a better choice for warriors than chicken.
I love this time of the year for fruit, cherries, apricots, blueberries, raspberries, plums etc are all ripening now so daily quotas are easily filled.  Fruit replaces desserts and sugary treats you may (or may not) have enjoyed in the past & are full of fibre & nutrients... yummm i think warriors get the best range of foods!
Do you eat the five cups of vegetables recommended?  That i think is the key for warriors to lose kilos if they need to & I have found a morning freshly squeezed grapefuit & lemon with warm water is the most refreshing start to the day!
I just replied to a different post about the discount & free postage on supps from NZ, if you were considering the warrior pack now might be a good time to do so.

Thanks for the reply Serenity. Yes the fruit is unbelieveable atm specially for someone like me that has been on high protein low carb(no fruit for 3 years). Hence my joy at eating any fruit. I love grapefruit and am having half before breakfast after my lemon and water and got a vitamix blender the other day to have green smoothies for breakfast to get in more green veges.

I do eat veges and salad so just need to fine tune which ones I eat. I like tofu and buy minced turkey to make burgers and found a lovely turkey roast piece in coles the other day. We are big fish eaters so basically the diet is good for me and although restrictive with a lot of seafood choices and no red meat the fruit makes up for it. Am experimenting with various grains for making my own breakfast cereals (muesli) and will look into the supplements in the new year.  I feel this morning as if I am going to loose weight with the diet principles as I can see I need to eat more of the right veges and less of the grainy breads etc. The vitamix is great for making fruit sorbets which are just frozen fruit and do make fantastic desserts.

Hi, welcome. Biggest mistake I made with diet was trying to follow Atkins. What I managed to do following Atkins and low carb was activate my gluten intolerance gene, and now I can't eat wheat anymore. I mean I get acid reflux, and extreme indigestion and nausea, vomiting, when I eat gluten. I couldn't figure out why I was all of a sudden gluten intolerant when I had no trouble eating wheat. I just recently read a article about following low carb diets, would activate a gluten intolerance gene and I realized that's what happened to me.

I wonder if that happened to me.

I don't get those severe reactions but I feel awful for a long time. Even coffee does it to me. It seems like oats bother me too. I can tell because my digestion gets way off, and I get depressed super easy. It takes over a day for coffee to stop bothering me.

In the last few days I have had interesting bowel things happen the more I don't touch any potential gluten, and consume Intrinsa. They are good things though, and my nervous system seems to work based on keeping off gluten and gluten like stuff. It might explain a lot of non-responsiveness to warrior diet for myself.

This sounds like a breakthrough for you, DOS. It is amazing how just reading an article like Mayflowers did that can make a big bright bulb light up!!

I can't tolerate oats anymore either.   I'm getting the same symptoms from oats too.  When I can find the article I'll post it. I can't find it!   I also have mental effects from gluten and oats. Anxiety, irritibility,  depression and sadness that goes away when I stop gluten and oats. I am so much more patient off wheat.. and happier! Better outlook!  

I found it!

Hm nothing really in the article. I think it has more to do with suppressed symptoms and body function. The sickest I have been was when I was really young I felt bizarre regularly, lots of ear infections, lymph annoyances, almost had tonsils removed etc. Then I became a weird picky eater and preferred to subsist off of things that wouldn't particularly boost health. Everything evened out more towards adulthood. I was never a sickly child, just emotional, super picky, etc.

If you had those issues as a child, and then you stop eating the stuff later in life... Perhaps you would have to acclimate yourself to lowered function again. You don't have the budding resilience of youth at hand though. All you got is a more powerful, less tolerant, system to let you know it does not like it.

Plus from blood type to blood type and secreter status, we respond differently to these things.

I didn't have but one ear infection. I had tons of sore throats and had my tonsils out at 6.  No lymph problems until I got mono at 17..  in bed a couple of weeks.  I think it's age related too. I'm going to have to be more diligent with my diet and exercise routine. I've been under a huge amount of stress this past year and I haven't been practicing stress reduction..Like we're supposed to do.. yoga or chi gong.  I'm going back to chi gong.  This chi gong master is a great healer.  People have healed themselves of cancers and stones, and arthritis. He's the one that I got the 'Good, Better and Best' from in regards to the BTD and practicing chi gong.  No more lazy Taurus..  
I'm listening to this song... my son played it on the alternative station.. I love it.. I'm a typical Warrior..
It's all about youth.
