Then again you don't know about the extra molar cusp and taster status which could shift the results either way.


I figured I'd better get all the details!

Just understand you don't need those other details to 100% confirm his GT if you know is blood type, Rh, and secretor status.

If I had to guess on secretor status, I would say he's secretor as he's not sickly. He is sensitive to caffeine and his index fingerprints do seem to match


I thought I was a secretor too for the same reason. I'm 46 and never get sick (knock on wood). Last cold I had was about 7 years ago, I remember it well. It was the cold to end all colds, literally. Since then, when others in the household get one, I never do. Anyway, just found out a couple of days ago that I'm a non-secretor. Also very sensitive to caffeine.

O Suzanna,
Thanks.  I did the measurements and it comes out Explorer but when I read the description and the strength testing, it doesn't fit well.  Finger lengths are very very close.  I'll try again over the next few days.  
It's supposed to get very cold tonight and then warm up for the weekend.  Skiing is awesome!!

My understanding is that we'll fit our genotypes in varying degrees. Until I did the measuring properly, I just assumed I was a Hunter, from being an O and meat-happy. A whole lotta adjustment goin' on! Red meat went from 12+ X/week to 3 X/week

So if "potato, white with skin" is an avoid, does that mean peeled white potatoes and any other color like red or purple are neutral if not otherwise listed?


Well besides sweet potatoes and blue potatoes, I'm pretty sure all potatoes are "white". We're talking about the potato "meat"- not the skin.

Potatoes with skin are higher in nutrients, and I *think* are lower are on the GI. Keeping in mind gatherer guidlelines, I'm pretty sure that means any and all potatoes are out (cept those sweet taters we get in 3 months...)

But if it specifically says "with skin", is it the skin that should be avoided?

I have to say that I'm reacting very, very well to the top-tier supplements for the Hunter genotype that Dr. D listed.  Also, one of my concerns was for cinnamon, as I've been told I'm allergic to it but, apparently, it seems to be enhancing my metabolism.

I'm pretty much a bottom-line person; that informs all of my decisions.  If something works reliably, I don't need a logical explanation for it, because it has phenomenal validity by virtue of its simply working.  

However, nothing quite cements the deal like a nice, compact and elegant, logical explanation for its efficacy.  Once I get that, I'm essentially bulletproof in my conviction.

Quoted from Don

Not true, since the measuring tolerance is 2-3 mm.  

For more information I suggest you read Dr. D's post on finger measuring.



I did read the post and my index finger and ring are so close. in fact, the index the ever so tiny, slightely longer. So even if equal, it goes to the index. And with a longer torso, longer lower leg, O+non... I'm a Gatherer.

I am going with how I feel and if it works, great. If not, I've been thinking about visiting the clinic.

Thanks for your help.

Where diet is concerned, I have a powerful need for scientific explanation to become a believer, otherwise I always default to my own logic. Unfortunately, my body does not seem to give me clues to whether something specific is working or not (exceptions caffeine and exercise). Doesn't mean that there isn't something good or bad going on in there, though, I've always known that. Don't want to be unpleasantly surprised in the future, hence my need for the details of the science as it happens.

Book hasn't arrived yet. There is no bookstore where I live so I can't just run out and get a copy like some of you did.

When I did my measuring my index fingers were 6.1 cm and rings 6 cm. Now that is close!! I am happy with my Gatherer status. The beef was starting to get to me. I love beef but I felt I was eating the whole herd

I didn't see in the book how to do measurements for children.  Is there any difference you think?  I would suspect all the weird growth spurting kids do, that would make measuring for GT an iffy proposition.

Children have not finished growing, so the measurements will not always reflect the proper GT.

Dr. D said to start with their blood type and Rh to narrow down possible genotypes and then strength test and use intuition based on the descriptions. He said he'll work on measurements for children but I don't know how young is feasible and when Dr. D will have the time!

What I wonder is if the children's GenoType reflect the parent's as the blood type does.  
Can two Gatherers produce a Hunter?

It seems that all the Teachers are non secretors.  He has never been tested.  I am glad I finally was tested and found out my secretor status.  I guess what is good about the GTD is you can get a Label without knowing your status.  Thanks for your answer.

Yup, teacher secretor here.  We get to eat lots of good things!   Depends what kinds of things your husband likes as to what might appeal to him.  But c#'s list is a good start!  plus chicken eggs are a superfood too, and we get 6 - 9 per week!  onions, avocado, bok choy, garlic, ginger, squash...it's allll good.
