Recently I saw a blog with an AB body builder he was doing very well. You may be more of a B then an A. Which makes your exercise tolerance better.

Might want to take a look at the Genotype diet and see if it works better for you. :)

Welcome

Per Typebase:
Nonfat cows milk - http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?493

I don't know that there is any rating for lactose-free milk, so I'd use the rating for the "regular" milk of the fat content in the milk you purchase...

Yes i see it..i ask cause yesterday i tryed no fat milk but got some stomach problem :(,so before trying lactose free if anyone use it :)

Your meal plan looks extremely similar to mine, so I would say you're on the right track. My intake percentages is something like 50% Vegetables, 20% Grain/Fruit/Dairy & 30% Meat (Only Turkey or Fish).

I've noticed I run like a race horse when my vegetable intake is 50% or higher. Plus I should note that I only eat foods from the "High" section of the book, unless I have no other choice (ex. restaurants). When people ask "Why don't you eat beef or chicken?", I just tell them I'm a Pescetarian (with an undisclosed addition of Turkey).

Since you're AB perhaps you should also consider fasting once a year. I've done extreme (
40 days of water) fasting to moderate fasting (14-21 days water or 1-40 days juice) to light fasting (3 days water or 10 days juice). The benefits are mind blowing! I've been doing them for years.

Sounds interesting, I've always been intrigued by fasting but I've never tried it because I love to eat.  ;D  
Can you expand on the benefits?  
And frequency (you said once a year)?

Thanks.

I stumbled upon this thread looking for fellow ABs. I'd be happy to offer some observations, but I truly have more questions than answers. Any ABs out there know of an AB specific forum?

I'm also coming at this from the opposite direction. Very quickly:

I was strong and healthy in youth, but declined rapidly in my late 40s and 50s. BTD reversed everything, and in my opinion, saved my life. I suspect ABs are particularly susceptible to decline given  the "modern" diet of unnatural but common foods.

A young bodybuilder would most certainly benefit by taking advantage of dietary choices that are specifically oriented towards their natural, evolutionary constitution. I believe BTD is at the pinnicle of nutrition science, and though it will take a while, will become the norm for health enthusiasts. I'm certain of this because of the profound change I've experienced with weight loss and medical issues. I'm fond of saying "health food was killing me" because, as a long time advocate of healthy food choices, these foods were still very, very wrong for me. To naysayers, my response has been this: "I've lost 45 lbs in 18 months without altering fat and calorie intake, exercise habits, or taking drugs. My blood pressure, cholesteral, and glucose is normal for the first time since middle age began taking it's toll."

My advice to you is that you not overestimate the seeming perminence of youthful vigor, and to not underestimate the damage that avoid foods do to your body over time. Especially the insidious, ever-present nasties like chicken (added to everything for that savory rich flavor), potato, corn, and gums (stabilizers), and sugar (poison).

Good luck to you. Expect amazing results.

No, I don't know of an AB specific forum, but will be happy to answer what questions I can if you ask them here.

Dr. D'Adamo has stated that AB's shouldn't skip meals due to stress from not eating.

There is not a forum, but there is the thread I mentioned above, and some other threads like this one.

Same story as me, I agree 100%.  I think older AB's are very susceptible to decline due to avoids (especially chicken) which can have very negative effects that we really feel due to the stress it causes.

Again I agree (especially with regards to chicken).  I'm confused about including potatoes in that list though, I do pretty well with them and I didn't think they were an avoid.

I can eat potatoes fine as long as there isn't some avoid oil or table salt used in the preparation...  I don't eat them often, as I focus on beneficial foods as much as possible so prefer sweet potato and onion for high carb veggies.

My Swami has them as an avoid, black dot, and I feel bloated if I eat them. At this point I'm very aware when something bloats me even just a little, and It takes a few days to feel healthy again.

Swami is so individualized. I would really recommend it to anyone on the fence, or not wanting to spend the money. Things will change a little from BTD or GT, but all for the better. I lost most of my excess weight on BTD, but started feeling really healthy with Swami.

Thank you all for the input!

Averno, I think might be coz of thrifty genes that you felt likely with aging ??)
And I see you're a nonnie as well so far I guess nearly all carbs are a bit difficult to digest? Or makes you instantly *growing* into the false direction ;) ??)....as they do with me....I am more and more aware about the sentence *silcencing the wrongly activated genes* I think that this is really doable with BTD and GTD and your instant effects (almost to be seen even only after a week of changes) are enormous...so far congrats to you to have found the way to our forums  :D ;D(clap)(ok)(dance)(smarty)

Very good point about thrifty genes and aging poorly. I believe that is the primary cause for my middle age woe.

Though in another forum that I was reading a few days ago, a young man from Montana was saying something similar (I think, there was a slightly confusing tone that I didn't quite undertand), but was sure that thrifty genes are soley to blame for this condition, (inferring that resetting them through dietary choices and the Ayurevedic herbs in the catalyst and synergist supplements would be resposible for the improvement, not healing the gut).

I think it's both reasons. My gut was nearly ruined, and introducing probiotics saw an immediate effect that inmproved as time went on. Now, my gut's bloating reaction seems a clear protest to foods, within minutes of ingestion,  that are not acceptable. Plus, I introduced the catalyst and synergist herbs only 6 months ago. They've stabilized my metabolism greatly, but I give a lot of credit to the gut-healing that occured in the year prior. An immune system/inflammation connection? Anyone know?

Always curious about how things work,  but really, I'm just so happy to feel well!. And feel so lucky to have found this path, with such good people sharing it.

go for telomer-enhancer's called astragalus and dito for curcumin &biperine(antiinflammatory and fine for blood) and another helper for me almost is
boswellia serrata.... real great stuff .....(clap)(ok)(dance)(smarty)

Thank you for the recommendations, I'll be looking into them.

Considering how much better I'm feeling in general these days (inflammation and weight control)  with more compliance towards my warrior diet, I wonder if extra supplementation is needed.

The activator and catalyst supps have worked well, and my concern is that introducing more telomer enhancers might throw important balances off. A concern especially for a cancer survivor like myself, who needs to strike a deal between the body's job of building and maintaining healthy cells while at the same time allowing them to expire at the proper time, preventing replication in a mutated state. Antioxidant intake is another area where I've heard this balance could be crucial, and that maunufacturers compete with one another by claiming higher concentrations. Not necessarily a good thing.  This may explain the relatively low levels of resveratrol in the activator supp.

I'd be interested in hearing more about this. Anyone?

These are difficult concepts for me to grasp, but I think Dr. D does, and might also explain why my BTD recommended certain supplements, while my SWAMI doesn't --it's more personalized and takes into consideration such factors as medical history.

I just wanted to throw my 2 cents in about potatoes.  I started eating them more last year and I swear they are good for me.  It helped me gain weight and feel satisfied when eating.  I don't feel like they have the "joint inflammation" property on me like some complain about.  I don't notice any difference.  In fact, my joints hurt less now than they did last year before eating them much.  And I eat them quite a bit now.  I have a challenge keeping weight on though.

Wow!!!  This is great!  I have been looking for this AB blog.  I have been very physical throughout my life and still am.  A couple of years I began having problems here and there (eyesight and others).  Initially following the book without strength testing, it gave me the same score for nomad and explorer.  For some reason, I did not conduct the strength test and began following the explorer diet.  I saw many changes in strength and stamina.  Eventually, I did the strength test and I became faster and stronger.  Then I conducted the swami, and realized that I am a nonnie, and am still adjusting to the mostly no grain and wheat diet.
I have realized that unless I have 10 or more servings of veggies per day, my BP will be high.  I have switched to eating more turkey, lamb and goat (most accessible meats and poultry for me).
