I just got off the phone with Peppermint Twist and she's not very happy at all.  Seems she's done all her measurements and it has come down to a 1-3 mm difference in her fingers that has now typed her as an Explorer instead of a Gatherer.  

Her ring fingers are just a tad longer than her index fingers.  And this now makes her an Explorer.  She's none too happy with her food choices.  Her beloved cottage cheese is gone and she can't even have regular eggs!  It wasn't a pretty conversation!

She should be back tomorrow (Monday), so consider yourselves warned!  

Her fingers should be burning up the old keyboard!

Oh dear   What a shock for poor PT.

The Exporer diet is not so bad once you get used to it. The meats are about the same so she can still have her ostrich   and cottage cheese will be back as a black dot occasional treat and so will the eggs.

Welcome to the Explorer club Peppermint Twist  .  Even though you'd rather not be here

What a wonderful gift for PT!  Some of her health challenges never disappeared on the BTD and, mayhap this will be the solutions that really works well for her!

Oh gosh! Thanks for letting us know, HK! Poor PT. This is going to take some getting used to for her, to say the least. But Vicki's right, here's hoping it helps her find better health.

Great attitude!

You win some, you lose some.  As Explorer she gets to keep lots of great veggies, chicken as a neutral, and get lamb, turkey, ostrich, mozzarella cheese, lentils, all types of rice, apples, spelt, and countless other great foods become superfoods.  

We are all lucky to have this new, deeper knowledge to work with to get closer to optimal health.

It's great to hear of all this positivity!  There's gotta be SOME things on the diet she'll love (or at least like)!

Wow,
I know she must be in shock.  She was so sure that she was a Gatherer.
Maybe your are right and this will be the answer to a lot of her challenges.

Hey PT,  I know she will be reading this thread the first chance she gets.

So PT once you are over the initial rebellion. I am connfident you will embrace the changes with the same joy you found in the BTD.
So welcome to the Explorers!

Maybe we should list the things we like about the Explorer diet.

One improvement is that corn gets promoted to a block dot avoid.  That's a relief for me because a lot of gluten-free foods tend to have some corn in them.  And it means the occasional taco is allowed!

And we have some cheese and grains as a superfoods.  I expect to see Chicken Parmesan recipes with spelt flour breading and mozzarella cheese showing up.  Isn't that great!

So PT, it will be alright!  


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Oh PT,
You know we love you here.  It's not that bad.  I wanted to be other than  a Gatherer.  I mean, I am left handed, play ball righty, have lots of awful worn fingerprints that show gluten intolerance.  But I measured out a gatherer.  So I am still not sure about all this, but will follow the low glycemic gatherer plan for now.  But my fingers are really so close, with the index fingers being equal or longer than my ring fingers.  Someone above was right, you may finally have the answers to your weight issues!  Please know we are here for you!

Yeah, good morning, Twisty, and good luck! I "was" an Explorer for a week, myself, . Unfortunately, I super-grocery-shopped a kitchenful of explorer food, which I now have to get rid of by eating!
Those pesky fingers, tsk tsk!

Cheer up, kid, things will get better!

Oh dear, PT!  I can empathize.  Reading the book, I was sure that I was a warrior.  Nope - I'm a Teacher.  I actually thought about sticking with the known A - Secretor diet.... at once, more freedom and more responsibility.

You will be fine.  Many of your previously restricted beloved foods will again be available and yes, some foods friends will become toxins.  You can do it!

Since starting the Teacher genotype, my body fat has reduced and my water saturation has increased.  The fat volume in my body has reduced to the point that I am concerned... and will have to break out my skin brush to condition up that skin.  All in 2 weeks.  Perhaps the Explorer list will hold the right answers for you.  I'm sure that it will!

I had a feeling from reading the book that I was most likely a gatherer, and I was correct.  Imagine my shock to find that Mr. KK, whom I was "certain" was a Hunter is ALSO a gatherer!

He is "somewhat" thrilled with the new program but at a loss that all soy is now history.  It will make his beloved Asian food with soy a thing of the past.

It will certainly take some time for me to make new food lists and learn them like I knew my O diet by heart.  Change is hard, but life is always changing.  It's how we react to change that matters.  Embracing it, moves us forward.


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

KK - It's nice for you that both you and Mr. KK are gatherers.  DH and I have been working on opposites for years, he's a B-Sec and I'm an A-Sec.  Now with the GTD, we're more closely related (Nomad and Teacher) food lists wise.  

Sure makes cooking a bit easier!

All right, whoever's got PT, let her go.   I'll make the sacrifice to keep us all safe.

In case anyone sees what appears to be an early sunrise this morning, look towards Florida, and search for the mushroom cloud that is PT.

All the genotypes have a lot to gain over O-nonsecretor...it's like a whole new world opens up.  It's a bit hard when it's not the world you expected.  I was really eyeing that coconut milk that hunters get as a black dot, before I got the book, but was shocked and amazed at how much more I get.  Never would have guessed any dairy would come my way.

Mozzarella?  Hard to beat that!

Well, we shall now see how you enjoy trudging through those rough waters!!!  Get trudging!

It is not easy being challenged with new restrictions!!!

I just cooked my two large Quinces.  They taste like dry apples.  I added some fresh black currants for fun.  Now it tastes cleansing.

I long for raw vegetables, soy milk, and apricot jam!!!

Car PT - where are you? We are all here waiting for lift off!!
At first I thought I was a gatherer or explorer & got psyched up for that, & now think I am a hunter & have accepted that. If that proves wrong, maybe there may be a small mushroom cloud in Illinois.....
On one hand, I think my finger lengths are 1 mm different!
How about that? If I am a hunter, I'm a borderline one, just inside the fence. I still haven't gotten anyone else to do the torso, but am sure the legs are a little longer.....
We will see
