I also am waiting for my book.  My Mom has to send it to me in Israel.  Waiting during the first weeks is rough!  

However, I may just take Whimsical's advice and go to the online calculator.  Somehow, I thought the GT website was not really operational yet.  I am going to see now!

I just did the calculator.  I came up that I was a teacher.  According to the menu, I am eating correctly already!  And my cheating on soda water seems fine.  The only thing that seems Way off is that I am not a peach=loving tolerant personality type at all!  I think I have the personality of a warrior or explorer!  I only have metric measurements, and I had to calculate.  I made a mistake at first on my torso measurments and came up as a Warrior.

The diet seems correct.  I do tolerate dairy, though I never touch cows milk.  I see I do fine on lots of goat and sheeps milk yogurt and feta cheese.  I eat a lot of it and it never gives me any trouble.

Still, I can't figure out the personality issue!

2 things: I'm a Hunter. No surprise there but where Spinich was a beneficial for me on the BTD, it's toxic for the Hunter, as is all green leaf lettuces. So what's a girl to do who LOVES salads?



Amy


I was wondering that myself.  My mind cannot process the fact that one day spinach is good and the next day bad.  Somebody please help.

Thanks, I haven't shopped for any cottage cheese for probably around 6 years. I need to figure out what is and where to find the good stuff.

"There are salad options, just not iceberg lettuce. I've been having escarole, very tasty. Romaine is a neutral. Chicory is a diamond superfood."

Thanks Lloyd! I will certainly try the other tasty greens available for Hunters, especially Escrole.

But...isn't Romaine a green leaf letuce? (Toxins to Limit - Lettuce, green leaf, iceburg)

I'm assuming if it's a superfood it's listed as such and all other green leaf lettuces are off limits for the initiation pd??

Romaine has a seperate designation. Look at the Warrior superbeneficials for confirmation.

While it is much 'cleaner' and simpler to not list all the neutrals, it also has that drawback. Benefits to both ways of listing.

On the genotype site can one tell whether a food has not been tested or was tested and determined to be neutral?

Thanks Don and everyone who has posted to this thread.  I've finally confirmed with your help that I am a gatherer.  If Kate can be a gatherer, I certainly can.

I just wrote a blog of my feelings and plans in relation to GTD.

Now I get it.  An O nonnie can be a Hunter or a Gatherer based on finger length.  Oh this is stressing me out!!!

Hi accidental_chef,

Well, with all your measurements it looks like you are a "Hunter",

Your Legs are longer than your Torso;
Your Lower Leg is longer than your Upper Leg;
Your Ring finger is longer than your Index finger
(it doesn't matter if it is only on one hand or both hands for you)
You are 0, Rh+, Secretor.

According to the Advanced Table on Pg. 297, that classifies you as a " GT1 Hunter".

You can still have Beef and chicken and trout (Oh, look at the cheeses you can eat) and brocolli and blueberries.....Enjoy!

As a "Gatherer", I can't have any of those. But I do get cottage cheese. Hooray for cottage cheese!

Cordially,
Margaret


Oh thanks Margaret, and Sluggerbean too!

Measurements - Get somebody else to help you!! The fist time I measured myself I came out at a Gatherer. I thought there was no way, I am a Hunter "everything" I re-teseted my self. I came out as a Hunter. I think a so wanted to be one that I convinced myself 1/4 inch difference to error on the Hunter side. THEN...my sister came over and measured me. It's true I am a Gatherer. Although I am tall, lean, love exercise (work in the fitness industry even) have white lines in my fingerprints, the measurements don't lie so I will be a Gatherer. I am O+Non, not to much room for error.

Rather than fret and complain, I will embrace the changes, look forward to trying new foods and while I felt like a million bucks on the BTD, maybe I'll feel like 2 million on the GTD!!

I freted and re-measured my fingers over and over... I just can't make my ring fingers longer than my index! HAAA. ... I drove my hubby nuts!  Our sex life suffered... I was manic for about 12 hours!  ha....

But now I'm settling in to my sentence! Ha...

I'm finding I like it here in the land of ricotta cheese and chocolate!  ha...

Quoted from HarmonyKitty
You can get Friendship cottage cheese at Publix.  No bad ingredients (as of this writing).  Just ask a B when it comes to cheese........

Thanks for the tip, HK!  I seem to recall that Breakstone, while mighty tasty, does contain a few baddies, as do all the brands at most "regular" stores.  I'm glad to know that Publix has one brand that is pure.  I shop at the HFS for 99.9% of all my groceries, but I do hit Publix once every two or so weeks, for my precious seltzer water and pine cat litter *lol*!!!  I get a few other things there sometimes, such as pineapple chunks, watermelon chunks (I'm big on chunks), lamb shoulder cuts (although, now that my HFS has so much more variety in the area of MEAT than it used to, I don't usually hit the Publix meat case), etc.  Once in a great while, there is a pint of Haagan Das vanilla involved...I don't suppose that is a Gatherer super bennie, by any chance?



...Dang it, didn't think so!

Thanks again for the tip!  It's so great to have a fellow BTD/GTDer who lives in the same town and knows about such things as Publix having a pure brand of cottage cheese.  btw, I've noticed that, for about the past year, Publix has REALLY stepped it up in terms of organics, have you?

Quoted from Whimsical
If you don't have your book yet, you can still go on the GenoType website on your free week trial and do the full online calculator, which is the most accurate anyway.  

Personally, I am quite pleased with the Gatherer menu, except for fruit and veggies.  Some of my faves have gone from neutral to superbeneficial (pineapple, raspberries, celery, cranberries, tomatoes)

  !!!!!

Hold the frickin' phone and stop everything!!!


Are you telling me that tomatoes are a Gatherer super bennie?!!!!!!!!!!  And here I was thinking that tomatoes were going to become an AVOID!

Oh joy, oh rapture!  

So then tomatoes are a super bennie AND cottage cheese is a super bennie?  Tomatoes and cottage cheese together are (is?) a CLASSIC!!!!!!!!!!

Stand back, world, I need a lot of room to embrace my probable Gathererness with the HUGE BEAR HUG I am fixin' ta lay on it!!!

Tra!  Tra!  Tra la LA!

Quoted from Whimsical
and some bennies stayed (bell peppers, onions, okra, spinach) but we seem to have lost some awesome beneficials to infrequent neutrals (broccoli, kale, mango, banana, blueberries, cherries, avocado).


     ...Well, that was a short-lived party out of bounds.  Broccoli, INFREQUENT?  Those two words don't go together!  Why, because it is a goitrogen?  And KALE?  No!  No.  Stop right there.  Step away from the kale and no one gets hurt!!!

Mango, banana, blueberries, cherries, avocado...WHAT?!!!!!!!  Stop the madness!  I can't hear you!   La la la la la!

Quoted from Whimsical
In the other food categories, for an O-non it is mostly win as far as I can tell - we get some dairy, more grains, keep all meats (except chicken), eggs are beneficial, CHOCOLATE is beneficial...

Yes, I'm happy about the dairy and WHAT--eggs, beneficial, oh YEAH, babe, keep news like that comin', but omg, I would definitely toss back chocolate for my KALE!  And bananas and broccoli and blueberries, mango, etc.

You'd rather have chocolate than kale?  Well, I'm guessing many people would agree with you, but, see, that is why I'm weird.  I would take kale any day over chocolate.  NO contest!

KALE!!!!!!!!!!!  STELLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S.  Is there any negotiation allowed in this, like at middle eastern bazaar?

Other Genotypes:  I will give you this nice truckload of chocolate AND this entire warehouse full of okra if you will kindly trade me for your kale, bananas and broccoli!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, Dev, just a heads up:  I read in another thread around here somewhere that there is a bug in the on-line calculator and sometimes warriors come up as teachers.  Don realized the bug in the calculator's programmed logic and has alerted the proper pups who will fix it.  You might want to use the calculator again a bit later, once it has that one issue worked out.  Unless it is already worked out and this is a day late and a dollar short!

Pt,
Glad to see you're taking these changes so well.  As expected I am a gatherer as well.  I don't feel so bad about not being so perfectly compliant with dairy pre-GTD, but will have to change from mozarella to something else.  I do use goatmilk if I need a milk product. The gatherer diet looks like a fusion of O and B features.  I'm happiest about getting a little more dairy.  The paneer is used in an Indian dish with spinach that was a favorite of mine. I'll add that back to my standard diet.

There were several foods listed I had never heard of, so it will be fun checking into those.   Anyone know what pumello(sp?) is or what stores carry it?  I'd like to try it first.
