Okay, here's a table for the Explorers to pull their chairs up to!
Set a spell and tell us who you are!
Happy about the new food? Unhappy?
Personally, I'm very sad about losing yellowtail, one of my all-time faves, but I get back my beloved apricots, apples, tapioca and mozzarella. Oh, yeah, I still get to eat that big bad mud bug, the lobster.
Now we need those pocket cards for the genotypes!

I am happy to get yams and cottage cheese on occasion again, but sad to see the peanuts and tofu go  

For the most part this looks pretty doable. My husband and I now have a few more foods in common (like lentils) so that is helpfull too.

I have a feeling that I might be an explorer, but my book will only arrive on 17th January - so I am not yet sure. But it would be great to be able to eat apricots and apples.

MyraBee, the BTD store sells laminated wallet fold-out cards for each blood type and secretor status. I love my O nonnie cheat-sheet! They just list bennies and avoids, anything else is neutral, great to have at restaurants & grocery stores. Would love to see that in a GTD version. Come to think of it, BTD has 8 cards (4 blood types in secretor and nonnie) it would take less cards for GTD, only 6!

Has anyone checked out the "overnight detox" in the book and on genotypediet.com?  It's kind of a gentle version of the infamous gallbladder/liver flush that's been discussed around here plus a castor oil pack.  

I really want to try that - the book says the blobs you might see are not gallstones, but I actually think this is a better detox.  I've done the full multiple-day gallbladder/liver flush before, but once I got to a point of feeling that I didn't need such a detox, I stopped doing them.  This version seems like a good happy medium.

Apricots are in the "give them up temporarily then you can have them back but not every day" category.
As an O nonnie, I couldn't have them at all with a clean conscience. for me, it's like getting apricots back.

I noticed that, and it looks doable. I chickened out and went the phyllanthus route 2 summers ago. Right after, people were telling me my skin tone looked tons better - out of the blue. Yeah, this isn't as extreme. I don't do nausea well.

Apricots are only a temporary avoid, they can be re-introduced after 3-6 months. I love apricots, and since I only like them fresh off the tree the timing will be perfect  

I was wondering about the flush too. Is it pointless for someone who no longer has a gallbladder? Or will it still benefit my liver.

From my readings here there and everywhere, people with gallbaldder problems will have liver problems, too, and can flush stones from the liver as well as gallbladder, so I'd say go for it. Unless somebody wiser than me (and there's lots!) says not to.

Actually, if you no longer have a gallbladder, it is probably a really good thing to do.  Your liver still produces bile, which you need to digest fats, but it just doesn't get stored in the gallbladder.  This means you can't release bile as needed, instead it is just constantly trickling from the liver.  So your liver has become even more important - anything you can do to improve its function will be beneficial to you.  Because this detox is gentler and uses less oil (therefore easier for your body to deal with if you don't have a gallbladder), it should work fine for you.  Try it and find out!

From scanning the book, I think I may be an explorer, too.
I would have to minimize my chocolate & banana combo which is important in appetite control & portability in my work situation & also a way to wake up since I can't tolerate caffeine.
Those items are very good for hunters & gatherers as are dates.
I suspect I shouldn't eat dates too much as I see how I feel if I eat too many. A tiny amount is OK.  Too bad as I found Lara Bars!!
I think my legs are a little longer than my torso, but even tho both ring fingers look longer upon first glance, if I measure them, on one hand, both fingers are about the same.
I need to get organized & test everything & need a friend to confirm things. I also need to 'bite the bullet' & pay for that secretor test as I still suspect nonniehood.
The leg bones seem very much the same length......
I was glad to see watermelon a bene for all the O GTs. I used to feel so great when eating it & was surprised to see so few bennies among O fruits. Now that changes!! Yahoo!!!!
I've got a ways to go to get it all together, but as of now, I suspect explorer as the type & maybe gatherer.
Well, we will see.

But this is where I'm completely confused and i was rather new to following a diet for my
blood type when this Genotyping book suddenly appeared. Are the blood type food lists now obsolete?
Do we now follow our Genotype lists instead of the blood type list?

Chloe,
You won't go wrong by continuing with the BTD.  The genotype program is just another step toward refining and further strengthening the results of choosing foods that suit you as an individual.  
Feel free to continue as you are, and if you wish, you can read the Genotype book at your leisure and try some transitioning.

The BTD alone is a powerful program, so keep at it as long as you wish!

Ok I haven┤t got the book yet... but I typed in my measurements and it says I┤m an explorer...
I don┤t know what to say when I read the discription it sounds very likely and I am a Rh - ... but when I look at the food list  feel   I need a tantrum face as well
.. all my favourite B secretor foods are gone......( or a lot 9 How can a bennie suddenly become avoid

Well I do need to loose weight (more than I have already on BTD) so my genotype might be the answer there... but I want to scream
I LIKED my B food !!!

So...am I the only one who find the foodlists looking pretty strange

Hi Explorers!  Looks like I am really a Gatherer, albeit a weird one!  My finger measurements are just not decisive enough and unless I turn out to be Rh- instead of Rh+ (which I thought I was), I am not one of you.

Hi Explorers!  Not exactly sure between Hunter or Explorer...longer ring fingers, never been overweight, Rh-, rely heavily on protein or I'll fade!

Oh yes, not a very patient person (waiting for the book)!

I am probably an explorer, but not sure yet (book is on its way).
A question: Do explorers have the same foods, regardless of whether they are 0's, A's or AB's?
Can someone list the really bad avoids for 0-explorers?
