I like the genotype diet because the BTD protocols weren't right for me.  The genotype diet portrayed a near perfect sketch of me and i no longer have the anxiety and rage problems i had before.  I eat the explorer diet and exercise accordingly.  The A explorers do poorly with the original BTD.  Neither one, nor four sizes fits all.  Hell, maybe its six!!!!

Easy E; thats great the GTD is working for you, again, BTD doesn't work for everybody thats why u should determine which diet u need via a test. But trust me man, those nutritionist even if you tell the about GTD she will still say it lacks scientific evidence so its not we dont knw what she knows, she knows what we knw but doesn't want to admit so

She ought to at least try it with an open mind.  That is what real science is all about.  It is always a work in progress.

I've long since concluded that if you are going to do anything significant in this world you're bound to tick off some people.

I don't often quote Lyndon Johnson (LBJ), but on this subject he did have a good point:

no person should consume cereal whole grains and dairy in substantial amountsquote][/quote]
Actually Bs should consume diary in significant amounts for health benefits.

"Truth is that there is more variability within a blood type group than between blood groups.  D'adamo's work shows this to be true."[quote][/quote]
There is variability within blood types-hence Swami/genotype diets. More variability between than within-how could the blood type diet possibly work then?? Dr Ds work proves the opposite. . .
Also a paleo-meat and veggies type diet does not benefit everyone as you seem to keep suggesting. Evidently it works for you-but its a mistake to generalise to 'all people.' What Dr D'adamos work shows is that we each have a unique genetic make-up which determines inner conditions that govern whether foods affect us beneficially or detrimentally (or in a neutral way) and can be placed within the parametres of blood type.

I was saying all of these genotypes have certain meats (poultry, fish, red meats) and plants and fruits that are allowable.  Not all genotypes have many grains, dairys, etc.  Some can tolerate better these newer additions, but no one goes wrong with fruits, veggies, and some poultry, fish, or perhaps even a red meat depending on how you are geared.  I am just throwing out ideas.
I am not saying anything bad about this fantastic piece of work.

FA, thanks for finding the video of WF! She showed it to me after explaining it and my jaw dropped at the end. What a smart aleck comment by the anchor! I was stuck by the typical "balanced" superficial reporting. Except the "balance" is by someone who doesn't have a clue! It's all about the calories, same old. same old.

The only way this diet wouldn't work for everyone is if there is something else involved that's causing a destubrance in the force. Hormone changes ...things like that. or environmental factors. This diet is the bomb..

Now I can't remember enough of the XYZ article, that I mentioned in post 14, to google it!

Some British article, possibly.  

Does anyone remember reading it?

Quoted from Dr. D
Lack of evidence is not evidence of lack.


Dr. D, that's a totally new take on the famous quote by a forensic pathologist,

"Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence."  (I forget who said it, but it's in a well known forensic textbook on blood stain pattern analysis. ETA: by Paul Erwin Kish, 1996; Some attribute the quote to Carl Sagan. I don't know if he said it first or not.)


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

At least the BTD and GTD uses food, exercise, and supplements as medicine instead of using foreign chemicals in the body.  

The explorer profile described me scarily well bodily and psychologically, the same for my fiance who is a gatherer.  May not be exact, but it is hitting the nail pretty close on the head!  

I actually consider genotypes and personality when counseling clients at work.  It helped me understand that some people really are built differently than others and that what works for one person may not be good for another.

When I read ER4YT, I was amazed at how perfectly my type O immune system was described from allergies, asthma, anxiety, adrenal fatigue right down to the very antibiotics my type O son & I are allergic to!  There's no way someone could pull that info out of their hat as a "guess"!  That was all the proof I needed!

Exactly!  A dared a person on a FB group to read the Explorer Monograph.

Indentified self as Explorer - as I had expected.

That does not happen by accident.

YES indeed- had I known my Geno type 47 YEARS ago I would have been able to change my whole life!  

I would have known why I fight myself in almost all I do.. food stress exercise, and SELF image..

Yes WE are the science others can't admit their 'possibility of true science'.....  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!
