BTD Forums  /  The GenoType Diet  /  Guidelines for Black Dot Foods?
Posted by: joyfulheart, Thursday, April 29, 2010, 12:52pm
I am following my SWAMI GTD.  My understanding is that Black Dot foods should be avoided for the first 3-6 months.  After that they become Neutrals.

Should I trust my gut (literally and figuratively) if I adore oatmeal, feel great eating oatmeal, but SWAMI tells me it's a black dot for me right now?

Thankies!
;D

I would trust the protocol to get the best results. You can always add the oatmeal later.

A black dot is a black dot as long as is listed as a black dot on the list.  Once your system is balanced, you are functioning 100% (after 3 or 6 months of total compliance), you may try black dots in moderation.  They can provide us with variety and important nutrients, but, they also have elements in them that, if taken in excess or if our bodies are under par, they will affect us adversely (the reason why they are black dots).  I only introduce them in my diet when there is absolutely no other alternative (eating out) or in a moments of sheer weakness!!!   :) ;) :)

I view black dots as "once in a while, in small quantities" foods. They're things I'll eat on holidays, at friend's homes or restaurants (when I have little control over the ingredients). They're special treats I enjoy without guilt a few times a year. They'll never be a regular part of my diet.

With me, black dot foods affect my weight...upwards. I try to limit them..The black dot that I cheat with the most is my black dot cheeses.   :B

Thankies everyone.  No oatmeal, corn, or wheat cereals for breakfast for me!  I guess it's eggs or bust.  Or get to baking some flax & almond muffins.  Any other A+/Teacher breakfast ideas to share before I go looking that up in the recipe center?  You folks with skin on are so nice.   ;D

I have an additional question about black dot food. First off I don't really see many black dots items that I would want to immediately reintegrate into my diet (except chicken). But I see some things that I've never eaten that are black dots. Can I take those into my diet or should I wait for the 60 day period to pass?

I saw purslane at the market this weekend and have always been interested in finding out how it tastes. I didn't get it because I didn't know if I could have it, but saw at home that it's a black dot.

I d avoid black dots in your case
health issues should be a concern and thus sticking to your guidelines is key

weight as well.....
black dots only make you go one step backward instead of forward
but again, we all do what we think is best for us, given our current situation

WW makes Blueberry Cranberry Muffins using flour blend to type...
Usually uses spelt, alone or with rice.  Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get the recipe written down to share...
