Thanks Vicki, I'm going to try and stick to the diamond foods for a while because I need to shed some pounds. I'm hoping this warrior diet will do that for me

I'm holding back from voting just now because I thought I was a teacher, but as an A negative, left hander I am pretty borderline with explorer, but I am a secretor according to my test, which is more teacher.  The profiles both have lots I can relate to.

perhaps I should re-measure - is it the measurements that make the final judgement?

Yes Vicky, the measurements will give you your answer along with your blood type and secretor status. The rest, like left handedness, don't really factor in to the final result. They are just "typical features" of the GT's.

Make sure you use the advanced charts in the back of the book too since you have all your info. No strenght testing needed

Thanks, Heidi,  I've been back over everything and Teacher it is!

better vote then!

What amazes me here is that, of the voters who know their secretor status, almost half (17 of 38 ) are non-secretors.  Maybe that just means that nonnies are more likely to be interested in special diets (due to our increased susceptibility to physical ailments), and therefore more likely to be active on this forum.

Even more amazing is that the ratio holds for Teachers.  The book describes Teachers (p. 138 ) as "Secretor" (not "usually" or "typically" -- just "Secretor").  But 9 out of 20 the Teachers who have voted on this A poll are nonnies.

OK, I'll run over and check the other poll threads ....

For the O's, nonnies are 24 of the 57 with known secretor status.  Almost as high as here.

For the B's, nonnies are actually 10 of 16!  Zow!

The AB poll had to be set up differently, since they apparently have four possible GenoTypes, but there's only 1 nonnie out of 7 total votes.

jenny, where did you discover that you were a spring, not a summer?


I had been tested by 'trained' "Colour me Beautiful" consultants both 20 years ago and again about 3 years ago, and followed their advice in my colour choices; however my sister finally shot from the shoulder and told me to reconsider as she could see so much golden in my appearance. So I went to St Vincent de Paul, and bought about $50 work of coloured clothes at $2 a piece,that I would never have dreamed of buying at normal retail prices and had a ball. I think actually that I am fairly borderline between Spring and Summer but choose to stay with Spring because once you change your wardrobe over you really need to have things blending. Hope this answers your question.

I have a good friend who is border-line Winter and Autumn.  She looks great in anything, and has always worn Autumn colors.  But her husband said he liked cool colors (he's an artist), and she started experimenting with wearing them.  Lo and behold, she's a Winter.  The difference is subtle for her---the only difference, really, is that she looks younger.  

I was "tested" 3 different times and each one said Summer.  I read the book myself recently and realized they were wrong.  I have lots of gold undertones. I don't know why nobody could see them before, or why I couldn't see them, but the difference has really been dramatic for me.  Men hold doors open for me now.  (Yeah, even hauling around 3 kids).  People pay attention when I say something.  People catch my eye and smile instead of ignoring me.  I had a nasty, scruffy old man say to me, as we sat side by side in our vehicles at a traffic light with windows down, that I was beautiful and he wanted to know if I was married.  I sarcastically said, "No, what do you think?  I drive a minivan with three kids packed inside."  Then I rolled up my window.

Ok... I'm a little freaked out b/c I'm an A blood type, but tested out as a Gatherer which is usually an O or B.  Did I totally test wrong or is this possible?  The books says that Gatherers are "typically" either O or B... so I'm just atypical?  

Can anyone reassure me here?  


Thanks for the responses to this post... I've gone back over the measurements etc. and believe I'm a Teacher instead.    

Thanks again!

which measurement was decisive of you being a teacher besides your blood type?

Well, I measured again just to make sure I did it right the first time, which I had.  The problem/confusion was b/c I had done all this with my niece who does not know her blood type, so I just used the chart on pg. 87 for us both, not paying attention to the one on pg. 91 for those who know their blood type.  After I read the Teacher profile, I'm positive it's who I am.  

I think what was most confusing was how well the Gatherer type fit my weaknesses and risks.  But I guess that has more to do with the Environmental part of epigenetics - I am the worst of my type O Father and the best of my type A mother, nearly half and half when you read the type descriptions.    But my body/health is true to my type A blood and what I now know is my Teacher Genotype.  

Typing my niece will be impossible without knowing her blood type - she's an exact combination of Nomad and Hunter... daughter of a type O mom and type B dad.  We'll see... fascinating stuff though, huh!

I was some what discouraged to find out that I was a teacher.  But now that I have followed it for a month and a half I feel that teacher is most deffinitely what I am.  The measurements where right on!  I am thankful I have a guide to follow with eating properly, it all makes sence to me!

When I first read Color me Beautiful, my first reaction was, "Oh, dear, I sure hope I'm not a Summer!"  I thought the Summer colors (pastels mostly, grayish blues and purplish pinks) were *soooo* boring, and I wanted so bad to be an Autumn (with all those yummy russets and olives).  But two different color analysts labelled me a Summer, and when they showed me how I looked in Summer colors versus other colors, it really was obvious (which I think I'd known 'way deep down all along).  I gave away the Autumn half of my wardrobe (which I was rarely wearing anyhow), and have made a point of buying only Summer colors ever since.  I really love the Summer colors now -- though I did marry an Autumn!

Oddly enough, when I first read The GenoType Diet, my first reaction was, "Oh, dear, I sure hope I'm not a Teacher!"  I'm not sure why, except that I thought the name sounded boring.  But sure enough, the measurements show that I am a Teacher.  After a few weeks, I'm not only getting used to my new foods, I'm actually starting to prefer them.  And who knows, maybe I'll soon find that I look (and feel) better with my Teacher food, just as I do with my Summer colors!

I was happy to find out I wasn't a teacher.  I thought I might have been an Explorer which
would have felt worse.  When I found out I was really a Warrior, it was a relief.  It wasn't
that far off from the Type A diet and I know in 3-6 months, I get some foods back that
I couldn't have on the type A diet.  I'm looking forward to cabbage because I've always been madly in love with sauerkraut.  Can't wait~

No, Lola, I'm afraid I'm stuck with being a Warrior, which isn't too bad, I've found.   I have a secretor test kit but just haven't gotten it off yet. Too many other things to do right now that are more pressing.... I do want to know my status, though.

Hi.

I've been away for a while. And what a change in half a year! Whoaha

I am quite puzzled what Genotype-box I can be fitted into actually. Wether I am an Explorer or a Warrior (or perhaps a Gatherer?? ), will all depend on if my thumb and middlefinger can 'just barely reach' or 'not reach' around my wrists. Hmmmm... I think it's a bit stupid. So I checked 'A who does not know' as my little complaint

Well, so much for my voting in here.

What I was really wondering about, was what will be happening to this site in the future? Does any of you regulars know? Will everything here be closed down and moved to the Genotype pay-site? Or what...?

mood: puzzled and disappointed. (Should I try to conquer those feelings or just explore them...? :-P)

Lasse, you're not alone.  There are several of us who don't fit into one GT very easily.  I straddle the fence between Warrior and Teacher.  I follow the Warrior diet and I like it a lot.  I tried the Teacher diet for a couple of weeks and felt like I was getting fat.  I didn't gain pounds, but I gained inches.  Back to Warrior diet for me.  There's probably more in the balance for you than just if your fingers can wrap around your wrist.  Can you post your measurements and let us help figure you out?

I'm on the Genotype site now. If you have the GenoType Diet Book you can get a free 1 week trial and you enter your measurements and it tells you your GenoType..It's great for people like yourself that are new to the diet. It gives simple meal plans with easy recipes to get you started.

Hi.

Thanks everybody. You all prove to me, that this forum is still alive.  

I most certainly hope you are right Lola, as I have no intention to make any shifts or major changes in my BTD as for now or in the near future for that matter. Without reading the new GTDbook, I have the impression, that it is an "add-on feature" or a fine-tuning to BTD. Something that you can engage in or not engage in, according to your needs or curiousity? Anyway, I still feel the same about the BTD as before the GTDbook came out and if there were any science behind BTD, I guess it would never be outdated or found wrong, only finetuned and improved upon. So I hope thats how it is?

Mayflower. I am not new to the diet. Have been following the BTD since the beginning of 2007. I would love to try the "free week" later on, as I am of course curious about what it is all about! But I don't have the book and I have no intention to buy anything. I will find my way to it, if needed later on.

Ok, maybe now I have send the whole thread-subject out spinning into outer space with all this    , but I wanted to reply somehow of course...
