Quoted from Don

Based on that you are a confirmed Hunter.



Wow those upper and lower leg lengths are awfully close.  If the finger margin of error is 2-3mm...the leg would surely be more?  Might make a difference?

I wouldn't make any assumptions about leg length differences based on the tolerance of the finger length measurements. Dr. D had specific reasons for the finger length tolerance.
Quoted from Dr. D
in evaluating the results from the clinic studies it was easy to see why ties (or even close neck and neck issues) should go to the index finger. True androgenic types have way longer ring fingers; a distinction often obvious enough to preclude a  any need for measurement whatsoever.

...nope, ring fingers still longer...

Well, this morning I started charting out the types of foods I should be eating and how many X per day. Also started a shopping list of supplements. This is definitely going to be interesting! However now that Mr. OSuzanna seems to be a Hunter, I won't be able to feed us identically. I'll worry about that later. He willingly usually avoids grains except for rice, and peanut butter. These things seem to make his skin itchy & flaky. Hence the nickname "Hannibal Lectin."

Osuzanna have you figured out what to eat in the morning yet ?
Grains and fruit seems pretty high sugar rush for me.

Love the "Hannibal Lectin."

Im wondering how to match my daughter diet with this as well
especially if she turns out to be a garther  

My list are all colour matched   ( visual B explorer)
I left some of the more weird stuff out...
My problem is especially with the diamond fish ...
most of them we cant get here...
but at least I can get cod, cusk monkfish  sea bream whitefish and turbot...so ill be ok
Some of the fish is pretty revolting for me

I am still struggling with breakfast.  My normal routine was to eat a hard boiled egg and a banana in the car while driving to work.  Id wash it down with Water Joe (spring water & caffeine).  Lets see chicken egg is dot avoid (no geese flying by have left any of their beneficial eggs for me), banana is a dot avoid, and caffeine is a full fledged avoid.  

I totally love butter which is now an avoid for me. Yesterday, I made brown rice, with sea salt, mozzarella cheese (one of the few of my beloved cheeses available to me) and olive oil.  I need to buy or make some ghee.

We all have to chant Trust in Dr D, he knows what is good for us.

OK Explorers, well get though this transition together.

Awe Actually I wondered about maybe being an explorer. I've definitely figured out I have the caffeine sensitivity but I am Rhpos(though I'm thinking about retesting), right handed, ring fingers longer than index fingers on both hands, have a rock solid sense of direction, and am sensative to barometric pressure changes. I definitely like my food lists better than yours and following it seems to be working.

Don't worry Kristin, Victoria, and I still consider you our cousin. You can still drop by the camp as long as you don't try to swipe our goats

I've been going between rice cakes with mozzarella, butter and pinto beans, and ostrich or beef w/onions. So far. It's only been a few days for me.

Okay did the Eldon card at my local health food store and I am definately Rh positive B. This health food store was counseling a shop full of people on the BTD and doing blood test(certified technician)like every saturday. A grandmother carried her college football playing grandson in and paid to have him typed. When they found out he was an O Jim, the owner, filled him in on the diet. They are reviewing the Genotype book and getting ready to order suppliments and test kits. They also carry goat meat but no moose or ostritch. So back to my tent with the other Nomads.

i am really going to get into this ricotta thing!
On a side, am feeling like a bit of a lonely wandering B, my book hasn't showed up when supposed to, the food lists are spinning round and round in my head, but i do have some nice fennel, licorice and peppermint tea. it is soothing, it ok for all B geno's and I can not wait to start trading sweet goat meat and illicit chocolate with u all

The food list on the GTD website does not list butter as a toxin to avoid but in the book it does. I've been using it as neutral. Can someone clarify which is correct?

Aha, I was looking in the dairy food category where butter is not listed at all. It is listed as a toxin to avoid in the fats and oils category, though, so that answers my own question. Not that I'm happy about the answer, no way!

I bought Ghee today and tried it on my rice cake.  I can live with that.

Im very sad about my loss of cheeses.   Im going to miss them.

My sons nomad diet looks very similar to our B diet, but cows milk is listed as an avoid.  He balked at that one and said No way am I giving up my milk.  It is like all those years he was growing up I told him to drink his milk and now dont.

Well good for you GCG

Yes ghee works well in all the situations were butter would have been melted...however I still dont like it on bread... miss the smooth feeling of butter.However I dont plan on eating a lot of bread so ... maybe a bit of butter on my sunday bread will be ok.
Yes thye cheese is sad There is not a single flavourfull cheese on the explorer list.
I mean mozza and feta is ok ... but they dont taste of cheese like Gouda or cheddar.

About the "overnight detox" in the Genoptype book.
Do not think it would be wise for Gatherers to do this detox because apple juice is an avoid for them.
And with this detox you must drink lots of apple juice.

I think my husband might be an Explorer in the GTD, and I am hoping that someone will help me to type him so he will know for sure (book in transit...):

A+
Height = 172 cm
Torso = 86cm
Legs = 86 cm
Upper leg = 39 cm
Lower leg = 42 cm

He is left handed

Left hand = Index finger 5mm longer than ring finger
Right hand = Ring finger 2mm longer than index finger

The finger length difference has really got to him, he never noticed it before I measured them, and now he simply must know what it all means  

Thank you
-Ruth
