Lloyd...and what will happen for explomad's I feel as I am a mix of explorer and nomade.....yummy foods here to be to expected......tirili..tirila..tiriloo..ooo
(have to compare with lr4yt and my newest personal guyde for healthy nutrition )


Isa, there are no 'mixes'. You will be what you are, not part one and part another.

Explorers can choose among calf liver, lamb, goat, mutton and rabbit 2-3 times/week. Beef is available as a neutral. Lots of poultry as well, including the red meat ostrich, and emu, 1-3 times/week.

Come on you are joking right? We don't really have to eat emu's and stuff right? I can eat beef and chicken and turkey but not goats and stuff.

Once you get the book, measure twice, think once

Any one of us could squeeze into any of the 6 categories based on description alone.  The descriptions are just analogies.  The truth is in measuring and testing to find out your actual genotype.

Reading the book will clarify alot of things, at least it is fairly clear to me.

I also wonder if Dr D will update any of the Health Series books at some point, that is a good question.

Rodney, it is in the front of the chapter. They are foods that only need to be avoided for 3-6 months after starting the diet, or while trying to lose weight or solve health issues. Other than that they may be used in modest amounts. I would guess that to be no more than, say, once a week to once a month. It probably depends on the individual.

Wow, what a great, helpful, user-friendly way to break down avoids, I love it!  I think it is meant to be like the tiers of yesteryear, only this way of categorizing things is much clearer and more user-friendly.

The more I hear about the Genotype Diet, the more I can't wait for mine to get here!

PT, if you truly are a gatherer, you would need to avoid sunflower seeds during weight loss, or intial diet of 3-6 mos.  Then they are allowed occasionally, like a neutral I believe.....but I really need to read some more.....I think I am a gatherer, almost positive.  But I haven't done all the calculations.

Quoted from 319
I question my results, It shows me as a hunter do to my torso being longer than my legs, my lower legs clearly longer than my upper legs, and my ring fingers  longer than my index and an o pos secreter, I cant possibly be a hunter  I am short very large boned heavy since day 1 and a clear endomorph, when I did  the strength testing the book advices i tested extemely low for hunter. I have an odd body shape with very short  upper legs which cause me to waddle like a duck, not very hunter like, what could be the problem? and which genotype should I try to follow? I am a bit dissapointed by the this THANKS!! Any suggestions appreciated.


Double check your ring finger measurement. If it is correct you are clearly a hunter from a GenoType standpoint, no matter how you may feel about it. O+ males with long ring fingers are default Hunters as it turns out.

Question I asked earlier when I went the website yesterday, I did not see anything about a free trial. Anyway I had done most of the measurements anyway via the info videos through itunes. the others were not that hard to figure out. I came out as a gatherer, but is it true that I can have more grains and dairy, and giving up seet potatoes and plums( after I worked really hard tog et two jap. plums planted. I know the diamonds are super food for ideal wt and body mass. the dots are food temporarily given up for 3-6 months and added in slowly once a week or month. But help me understand why I may eventually be able to enjoy cucumbers, broccoli (I may have to give up??? I like broccoli and haven't had too many problems with the tatse unless it is bad.) and avacado .Does this supercede the LR4YT and the health series books what about the wheat in some of the meal plans offered, do allergies and reactions still precedence over super good and limited foods. My book is on back order like everyone elses from amazon.
FOr kids do we just apply LR4YT if we know BT/ RH and secretor status?

angel, I believe allergies and bad reactions still should keep you away from particular foods, at least for a time, like a few months, after which maybe you could try the problematic things, one at a time, so the guilty parties are obvious..

It looks like Gatherer or Explorer from the advanced calculator, depending on finger lengths. You might strength test those two if you can't get a reliable finger measurement. If you want Explorer, root for longer ring fingers on both hands.

Okay, I'm up again, back on the trail of the elusive genotype. I'm either explorer or gatherer. I'm over the panic re: the food, once I remembered the unlisted ones are neutral. Whew.
Oh, and the whining was the same when I found out I was a nonnie, all crying & thumb-sucking
The oddest thing. The small ruler I found in a jar of paintbrushes, pencils, etc., has a heat-impressed notch at the exact length of my index fingers. Is that weird or what. I wonder what project caused it to be put there. Could have been me, for all I know. After all, it is in my art supplies.
The variation in finger lengths is coming from how firmly or gently I nestle the ruler into the webbing between my fingers. So I guess the trick would be to use the same pressure each time. Way to go, Captain Obvious.
I don't think I've ever bookmarked and underlined in a book as soon into ownership as I have with this one.
I'm also going to back off alot with the helpfully-meant advice, til I get my feet under me abit more vis a vis the new dietary info.
I like that Dr. D isn't shy about "talking science" in this new book.

Oy. If the clinic wasn't closed for the week I'd drive down there & insist on Dr. Natalie or somebody there measure me themselves & tell me, my brain hurts.
Back to the drawing-board. Sigh.


Awwww...  If your Torso > Total Leg Length; your Upper Leg > Lower Leg; and you are an O+ non-secretor - then you can only be either an Explorer or a Gatherer. The determination of you being an Explorer rather than a Gatherer is dependent on your ring fingers on both hands being longer than your pointer fingers.

Have someone help you with measuring your fingers.  Placing a piece of paper on top of your finger perpendicular to the ruler can help you determine the exact measurement....

  Sweet mother of pearl!  I can tell you right now, sans measuring anything that my body is like a fun-house mirror distorted reflection!  My torso is loooooooooooong and my legs are stuuuuuuuuuubby.  My upper leg is longer than my lower leg.  I haven't measured, but it is.  Heck, Howie Mandel's hair is longer than my lower legs.  Howie Mandel has no hair, you say?  Well, I rest my case!

The Gatherer Genotype is closing in all around me.  Everything is fading to black.  I'm melting, melting....what a world, what a world!

You might be surprised when you do your own measurements. Since I have such long femur bones I thought there was no way that my lower leg would be longer than my upper. But it is. And... I thought that my torso would not be nearly as long as my leg length. Guess what... it's longer.  

The measurements are based on structural markers, such as the bony protuberance of the condyles which can be different than our general appearance makes it out to be. Rats... I'm not saying that very clearly, but you get the gist...

I did think, as I posted my post, Edna, you don't know for SURE until you measure, because how you see your body is subjective and skewed somehow.

New prob:  what if you don't HAVE any bony protuberances, of the condyles or otherwise?!

PT, you crack me up!  Every time you solve one problem, you sniff out a new one!   (kind of remind me of me!)

As for the bumps...you'll find them, don't worry!  Might take a bit of firm palpating here and there, but they will be there.  Even in places where there is no padding it might take copping a few serious feels before you are sure you have the right spot.  And, if you are like me, you will do said feeling and measuring a million times until you are SURE you have the right things.  (well ok most of my doubts.  maybe I will go measure again...)

Holy Highly Beneficial Foods, Batman, I think my book is gonna be at my house when I get home!!!!!!!!!!!

I just went to "track my package" and, while that whole thing remains WEIRD in terms of this order on Amazon (now the earlier info is gone and it only tracks it since yesterday), it was in Orlando, Florida as of 7:04 p.m. last night!  I'm only a few hours from there, in an undisclosed location in the Witness Protection Program (   ) here in west central FL!  This means that, unless my book was sucked into the swirling vortex that is the gravitational field around Walt Disney World in Orlando, it should be at my house today, by my calculations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We'll get to the bottom of this chicken situation!*

* edited to add:  oh, I just realized I was referencing another thread there *lol*!  In another thread (I think it is "Gatherers Unite!"), they are tawkin' 'bout how Gatherers thrive on chocolate but should eschew chicken.

Meanwhile, chocolate repulses me and I subsist mainly on a curried chicken salad that my HFS makes.

It's a brave new world, starting as soon as I read that book, huh?

Thank you, Dr. Natalie!
My love affair with minutiae (the measurements) got commingled with my conflicts over which diet I wanted to live with, I suppose. (No yellowtail? I'll die! )

I think I'm an Explorer.
How 'bout I "explore" the Gatherer diet?

I got stumped for a bit on exactly which bump below my kneecap was the right one. The video on utube helps alot. You do have to feel around for those bony protuberances, even when you CAN see them.

Hey at least I get to keep chocolate, and we know that's all I really care about, lol!

the website is asking for a card even for the "free" trial....

I signed up with my card and cancelled it within hours and I still have access to it for this week.  I'll still make sure my card is not charged at the end of the week, but everything looks fine so far.
