BTD Forums  /  The GenoType Diet  /  Other Hunter GT - questions on beef, pepper
Posted by: aussielady582, Tuesday, October 22, 2013, 4:19am
To other GT 'hunter' types, especially the leaner tall people, just wondering which types of quickly cooked beef steaks work best for you, in terms of energetic yang effect / support for your adrenals/stress response?
I found New York steak very powerful last week, more so than lamb chops.  I felt pretty  good, and more  energy/stamina than usual.
Pepper:  are you eating black pepper, or just cayenne pepper? is black pepper ok or as mentioned in GT book, could it be toxic to some body organ/system? I eat it due to the effect it has on brain metabolism.
How about tomatoes, cucumber, avodaco, red lentils - how do you feel when eating these. Look forward to hearing from you.

sorry, of course I meant avocado.  I seem to be losing my taste for it, for some strange reason. I like a little tomato in the morning, as a little red to give energy and resonates with the base chakra (red). and of course, umebushi plum (red) before early morning walk/exercise.

I'm not sure there's a difference between the energy-load of a New York steak and a filet, which two cuts are separated by one bone (T-bone). I don't think I'd refuse a filet for being less energizing than a NY strip or quibble about the cut of good beef being served.
I'm no GT1 or even O, but a B who derives a strong energy kick from beef, and I note no difference. I am energized by the chuck in a burger, the cubes in a stew, the brisket, u-name-it. Enjoy it!  :)

Lean rare beef > lean beef > lamb > fatty beef.

Grass fed > grain fed.

Cayenne but not black pepper. Tomato sometimes, cukes = lentils = avocado = never. If anything, tomato slows me down.

thankyou san j and Lloyd for your contribution. sensible, also, when do you like your red meat, any time of day? do you eat with salad, veg or any grains, curious??
fish still wins my heart and taste buds most of all, chicken sometimes, duck less often, still not sure about red meat - maybe in small amounts.  turkey sometimes.
vegetables helping a lot. plus tumeric, garlic, ginger.

Any time with anything.  ;D

Duck is wonderful but I only roast one a couple times a year. Agree on last line quoted.

Again: I'm no Hunter, and I don't have a SWAMI, but I do know that beef is a serious energizer for me.
I am energized by it at any time of day.
I like it with virtually any accompaniment, including such grains as pasta- for instance, in ravioli - and breads (as, say, burritos/fajitas and the classic hamburger).

As Hunters are not to indulge in wheat, I am not suggesting you violate the rules! If you are hooked on flour products, do seek advice from our O friends here re: non-wheat versions.

But I'm very fond of beef in stir fries and in curries with vegetables, in salads, and, best of all, grilled as steak and savored quite simply with a vegetable or two. Cubed steak on skewers as kebabs with vegetables is a great way to enjoy it.

I don't eat it all that often, and every time I do I notice how much energy it delivers!
