I am so glad to be back and feeling rejuvenated. I have visiting my local library to read books on food and the various diet types that have been already published. One of the books I finally was able to read and somewhat apply was The Genotype Diet by Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo, a naturopathic physician. I was introduced to naturopathic medicine by my previous employer and I am currently still on the fence on whether to pursue it, but that is a story for another day. Anyways, I have been fascinated by his findings and research especially in my search to foods related to inflammation e.g. rheumatoid arthritis.
I decided to perform some of the assessment tests outlined in Dr. D’Adamo’s book. The assessment was based on blood type, rH type, leg length, torso length, finger length and height. My results revealed that I can be either the Gatherer or the Nomad. Therefore, this week’s Sunday Game Plan I am using most of the ingredients that is allowed from either genotypes. In addition, on Tuesday 5/3/16 I have had the privilege to cover the annual Queens Taste 2016 event.
