Into genotype and swami, I didn't feel so good anywhere and I am so confused.
BTD diet is so easy, especially with the app, and now I'm just confused and frustrated to eat.
And I'm incredibly constipated!!! any advice?

Sorry you are not feeling so good!! Can you remove a few things from your meals & see if you can identify anything in particular that might be making you constipated?  I would go back to to BTD & eat that way again until you feel ok & then add things one by one in order to see what it was that changed things?!

Have you had a secretor test? If you are a non secretor, we are very sensitive to things... perhaps if you don't know, run swami as a nonnie & try eating  that way?

That's another thing, I did the saliva test and it came back I'm a secretor.  But everything about me and things I'm going through, completely lean more towards non secretor.

The test may not always be 100% accurate...(time delay, any blood - from gums - in saliva?!)
I would definitely try eating as a nonnie then - can't hurt eh? Or at least run swami as a nonnie & see if it removes any foods that jump out at you as possibly being problematic?!  All the best & keep posting

Sorry you're not feeling well   If BTD was working for you, just go back to that.  Some people do better on blood type than genotype.  Have you tried this quiz to see which diet may be best?  http://www.dadamo.com/which_diet_is_right.htm

I just saw your other thread about having an appointment with Dr D.  That's awesome, and I'm sure you'll get things better straightened out then.  Still, until then, maybe you should just revert back to how you were eating when you felt better.  Best of luck and safe travels for your appointment; you have quite a journey!

SWAMI O+ Gatherer, Healing from Fibromyalgia

It's possible that your body is doing some deeper healing right now, and that can cause uncomfortable symptoms.

It's also quite possible that you mis-measured for genotype and/or SWAMI, making the results less accurate.

I personally did well on BTD, and then quite horribly on GTD. The problem was twofold, I think. First I was incorporating way more dairy than is good for me, or that I could tolerate at that time. Secondly, I felt too deprived with the vegetable choices- it was winter and all the starchy, orange vegetables were avoids or black dots. I never felt like I could put together a satisfying dinner without squash, carrots, or sweet potatotes. Any one and I'd have been OK but I couldn't stand not being able to use any of them.

Then I got SWAMI and it was so much better than BTD had been! My cheese list stayed about the same but my portions shrunk down to  condiments, and I got back all 3 of those veggies that I felt deprived without. I felt much better on SWAMI than I had on BTD before that. It's been 2 years and I'm still not 100% healed, but I've got some chronic issues to work through.

If GTD didn't work for you, I'd suggest trying SWAMI. Since SWAMI isn't working well for you either, then something needs to change. Its' possible that you mis-measured and SWAMI is "wrong". It's also possible that you're dealing with some other health issues right now and you need some supplements and/or other therapies in addition to a fine-tuned diet.

I'd suggest resuming BTD for now, until your appointment with Dr D.

The O BTD was much better for me than the Explorer GTD, which had too much sweets and dairy.  The SWAMI cut out nearly all the diary, but it left in the sweets, which I crave but can't tolerate.

Good luck!


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

It is possible that with SWAMI you are doing a deep healing, as someone suggested, which is causing the discomfort.  If this is the case, it is possible that returning to BTD will slow the healing to allow you more energy / less discomfort.

It is also possible that something is entered incorrectly in SWAMI causing the irritation...

I would probably return to BTD until the appt. at the clinic where they will provide more proper answers...

I get so frickkin mad when I see reports of results not coming back accurate, Possum........I hope others feel this way too (for some reason) - probably because of the waste of money, time, and impact on health it causes!

So...is it even worth it to pay to have your secretor status checked if it's not always accurate? Because I really don't want to waste money on something that may or may not be accurate. It would be different if it were cheap.

I've thought about this a lot. I bought swami and I've run it both ways, once as a secretor and once as a nonnie. As a nonnie a few things shifted from neutral to beni and visa versa, nothing that I eat went from beni to avoid. As a nonnie I would get lots more meat, since I do not really thrive on an abundance of meat and since 80% of the population are secretors, and since I don't have any health issues, I stick to the secretor plan.

I think the secretor tests are pretty accurate. Yes, false negatives can happen if the sample is too old or improperly stored before testing, and false positives can happen if there's any bleeding in your mouth when you take the sample. But I don't think either of these are particularly common.

It would also depend on how you were going generally... If you suspect nonniehood, then I would get it done!!
