Believe it or not, I received the Genotype Book yesterday via mail from Chapters/Indigo.  WHAT AN INCREDIBLE BOOK!!!

Couldn't wait to read it and do the testing, it appears that I am an Explorer (O non +) ring fingers on both hands long (1 cm longers than index), longer torso, long upper legs in relation to lower legs),  my husband is a Warrior (A sec +) long ring fingers, short body, long legs.

I think my sons (still need to do measurements) are either Hunters or Explorers.  Oldest Son is O sec +, Youngest Son is 0 non + both have long ring fingers.  

Interesting how blood type slides quite nicely into Genotyping.  Hunters = 0's others are mixed.  

Really interesting information about in-utero conditions that set your footprint.  My mother smoked and drank right through her pregnancies.  She always said that she added exactly 12 lbs to her 100 lb frame with each of her pregnancies and she could slip into her prepregnancy clothes within 12 hours of giving birth.  My sister was a premie at just 5 lbs, and she started having weight problems while in elementary school, now she suffers from high blood pressure, early stage of diabetes, and high cholesteral.  She is only 49.  (A-).  

My brother and I have weight issues, but we fight it with exercise and food.  It gets more difficult every year.  Both of us have nasty allergies that can get out of control when we are not well fed.  

I always thought the weight/diabetes thing came through my father's side, but now I have an inkling, it might be related to my mother's "habits" during pregnancy.  

Haven't read up on the food choices thoroughly yet...Warrior looks similar to A sec, Explorer is really different, where in God's name am I going to find goose eggs!!!

While you are waiting for the book did you read Martha's blog: GenoTypes and Blood Types?

Quoted from jayneeo
wellllllll.........I am so jealous.. ....I checked out the genotype site and under recipes, I was surprised to find a vegetarian recipe for the gatherer...(me) and surprising as that was....I was thrilled, actually.

But did you notice that the Asian Vegetable Stir-Fry recipe was also listed as being OK for:

Hunter
Gatherer
Explorer
Nomad

That will be a major shock if it turns out that cornstarch is OK for Hunters, Gatherers, and Nomads since those should be primarily type O, B, and AB.

I suspect that is just an oversight or they ignored it. They may not be used to using the substitutes such as arrowroot that regular BTDers use.

The Barbecued Burgers recipe has bread crumbs, ground pepper, and hamburger buns, whole wheat. That can't be right.

It is listed as OK for Hunters (O), Gatherers (O,B), Explorers (any) and Nomads (B,AB).

Didn't I read that eDiets has similar problems with their BTD recipes?

Hi all,

I loved seeing the posts about the book.  The real pub date is December 26, and we at NAP are prohibited from selling it until then.  We've been encouraging everyone to pre-order through Amazon and B&N online, as it really is the most efficient way to get the book asap, other than to head into the bookstores on the 26th.  Interesting about Chapters/Indigo...

I can address a lot of the issues about the menus/meal plans on the new genotypediet.com site.  The site has "soft-launched," meaning that it is up and running and we are finding out lots of programming issues that would result in Type A warriors getting a steak recipe!  I am collecting all of these issues and sending them on to our partners who are programming the site so that these can be corrected.

Bear with us on this, and please feel free to email me with any queries you have.  It's going to take a few days or so for us to get the kinks worked out, but I think it will be well worth it!

The book looks great!  It's been an incredible journey witnessing Peter's process as he researched this material as well as having the opportunity to participate in many aspects of the book and the website development.  We are hard at work at NAP, finalizing all the companion products, support materials, and establishing some new systems for GenoType.

Thanks for all your good wishes, for your enthusiasm and support, and for being part of this very special moment in time.

Wishing you a splendid holiday and many blessings in the new year!

Martha

Most cities have a china town, or some kind of asian market.  You may be able to find some there.  Or go to Asia, you are just as likely to get a goose egg as chicken egg when ordering out.  They usually do not differenitate between the two.

I did my measurements over again last night (leg measurements) and found my lower leg is slightly longer than upper leg, so on a redo I am a Hunter.  

I am curious why a publisher would release a book on December 26 rather than before Christmas.

Hi, Martha!!!  I love your narration of the youtube Genotype Diet learning modules!  I just want to respond to your post to say that a few days or so to work out the kinks of an entire new web site is totally understandable!  Where I work, we recently added a program to a suite of programs we have that are all part of one software company.  IMHO, both the software company (as in, their service/support) and the software itself (as in, the primative, poorly-designed programs) are horrible and anytime we even have an update to the software or a new version, chaos ensues.  But to implement this whole new program of the suite, we had to completely shut down the "production environment" for the entire suite, including the program that I work in, for MONTHS.  It took several (4) full-time people every working moment of those months, as well as several of us who were not involved in the project full-time to help out, in order to finally get the thing up and running a week ago, and the entire suite is now back up.  Again, I'm talking several MONTHS of downtime for the entire system.

So a few days to get an entire new site up, running and debugged/dekinked is totally understandable and admirable!!!  We can certainly bear with you, as the book isn't even out yet, but however long it takes to get the site worked out, we will be patient because we know how well this BTD site is programmed and run, so we're glad to give all the time and space needed to get the new site to follow in that legacy.

Have a great holiday!  Christmas should be interesting at Chez D'Adamo, because it is not only Christmas but also "Genotype Diet Eve"!!!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Happy Genotype Diet Eve!

We'll have kid tables in due time. In the meantime, I'll publish a patch that uses blood type and the strength-testing components to let parents have some sort of insight.

Maybe because no one in his right mind would decide to start a diet right before Christmas!    It's timed perfectly for New Year's Resolutions Day.


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.

I cannot speak to why, but it is not an unusual date to release books on. On Amazon, I noted in the "diet" category alone there 21 books being released on December 26th.

Did the Geno-type research directly refute any of the blood type research or did it fully support the blood type findings and simply further define those findings?

I know this is a 'duh' question, but I would like to hear the answer.


Very little 'direct refutation'. I think the filmed lectures get into it a bit...

Any chance an  A would be able to eat meat after he was tweaked into the correct geno type?


Teachers (GT3) get goat or mutton a couple times a week.   Plus Emu and Ostrich, which are meat-like birds.

Explorers get a bit more. Warriors are mainly 'stuck with fish'.

Pepperminttwist, you're not leaving the BTD behind. Dr. D. said the BTD is still the most important part of his research.

Yay!  It's just weird to think of making such a big changaroo after TEN years.  The BTD is in my blood, no pun intended.  I know sometimes I go haywire and plunge into avoids, but normally, when I'm on my game, you can't tear me away from the BTD.  What IF my genotype's diet per the new book is all WEIRD-like?  For example, on the Genotype Diet website, the sample dish for Gatherers is a vegetarian stir-fry with "lite soy sauce" added.     Where to start, where to start?!  At least it didn't contain wheat or corn, although, wait, "lite" soy does usually contain wheat--but apparently they are still tweaking the recipes, the site is not officially ready for prime time.  And, anyway, I could add a little meat, leave out the soy sauce, and be fine.  ...But if that lite soy sauce isn't in there erroneously, I still won't choose to have it.  And what if there are a lot of things like that, a lot of differences between my BTD type's food recommendations and my GTD type's?  Not that I even know I am a Gatherer yet, but of course I'm already assuming *lol*!!!  What if I loathe my genotype?  What if I'm an "x" trapped in a "y"'s body?!  Hey, if it can happen to people with gender, why couldn't it happen with genotype?  And don't you just know I'd be the one it would happen to *lol*?

...I would make SUCH a terrible Buddhist.  I'm just not a big fan of change, in any way, shape or form.  I'm not good at dealing with it, let alone accepting it.


What if I'm a Warrior trapped in a Gatherer's body?!  I've got some of the traits of Warriors.  And that's just one example of things on my list to worry about!

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh!

Chicken Little, OUT!

Goat, lamb, and mutton are all neutral for A nonsecretors on the blood type diet, have not looked at what happens with the genotype diet.

Hello everyone!

Guys, what are you complaining about?I have to wait till January 7th
to get my copy. Even then there is no guarantee it will arrive
in time.

That's what comes from living in Tokyo!!!!!
After seeing the video and reading the sample chapter, I've
been dying to read this book.

Something to look forward to next year!
By the way, according to Chinese astrology, 2008 is the Year of
the Mouse/Rat.
