Posted by: Joeyy, Sunday, January 19, 2014, 3:11pm
Well it's been a few days since I returned to the diet and already my weight has been coming off steadily.. I never had this on the vegan diet, so that's great news

I also found out that I'm a non-secretor which had cemented my feeling that I was a Hunter :-)

Just one thing... I'm a bit uncertain how hunters respond to oats. For some strange reason I can't find my book  >:( grrrrr lol... Can someone please let me know

Oats are an "add back" after 3-6 months on my husbands Hunter SWAMI.

Oats are an "avoid" for O nonnies on the BTD, and a "black dot" for Hunters according to the GTD book.

I would suggest that you avoid oats for now. It's likely you'll never be able to tolerate them, even after being on the diet for 3-6 months.

See how you respond to them, if you do, make sure you have them simmered in water - in a nice moist form which you intestines should be ok with, not dried out or baked as in meusli, or meusli bars, or biscuits/cookies.
Choose some other grains too on other days, like quinoa, amaranth, sprouted khorasan/kamut bread if you can find it. or rice. millet? buckwheat?
If your system is working well, maybe some oats once a week would be fine, esp if you are underweight as I remember my Ayurvedic dr recommended oats for me - served warm simmered in water, oats are also nourishing for the nervous system.  the best way is to buy whole oat groats/grains, soak them in warm water overnight, then simmer lightly to maintain the enzymes of the whole grain.

In mine as well. I seem to tolerate them well possibly because they are one of my 'lifetime' foods. ;D
