Sure Ribbit, I never had any complaints about it. I loved it just for the sake of the experiment actually. And it has been great fun, although a bit narcissistic one? Well, only I can judge as I live alone at the moment  hehe (I liked that one)


Wanted to comment on your earlier post aswell Ribbit:

Quoted from Ribbit
Lasse, you're not alone ... Can you post your measurements and let us help figure you out?


Ribbit...my measurements: H 5f 4-5i ; W 133-136lbs ; red-blonde hair ; green eyes ; no weight problem ; could live on fruits and vegetables (but I also like meat) ; naturally muscular ; ... so thats it for now

But really Ribbit, it all changes, according to wether my fingers can "barely reach" or "not reach" ! Its weird   or I am weird ? Of course I know that in reality this fact alone cannot make all the difference in it self. But that's how the simple site-test worked on my measurements... weird weird weird...

Without having studied D'adamos deductions in detail, my first impression is that the whole thing might work in reverse of what he initially intends with this whole diet thing. I mean isn't it an assault on the "individualization" to reduce the entire human population to 6 genotypes? Of course we cannot fit into those boxes. I am sure he has found some useful metabolic processes linked to certain genes, and that it could improve the BTD to take them into account. But that is not the same, as grouping everybody into 6 genotypes. Well I am full of prejudice here I know that (everyone should be) and I will look forward to study it all in more detail... There is "food for thought" at least. No matter what blood- or geno-type you are, it might be good to digest it, I guess?  


bye bye

The jury is still out pending another run through of the measurements and doing the fingerpringing.  Also secretor test has to be done yet.  

So far it is looking like A+/ Teacher/Taster maybe SuperTaster/.  Descriptions resonate with me, except legs are more gynic than andric and am a "square" jaw.

Everything on left side of body seems larger or longer than on right.  Both ring fingers longer than both index fingers.  Although I am not left handed or totally ambidextrous, I know I am left-eye dominant and I keep rhythm with my Left Foot=not normal.  (My sister, Type A+, is ambidextrous.)

More on this soon, I hope.  What an adventure this is.  I just did, for an experiment, a Teacher diamond foods meal that was amazing:  Onion, garlic, leftover salmon (with kelp), alfalfa sprouts, two eggs on top and a couple of pieces of puffed brown rice cake.   Well, I liked it.  It was a lot of food but I feel good from it.  Hope I really am Teacher because I can live without goat or mutton, can't really do emu, ostrich, don't want to do squab, but turkey and chicken and the fish and cheese could make up for the wierd meat list.

I started with BTD since 2006 and it worked for me. (You need objective evidence like change in body/blood parameters to tell if it has worked.) Then I started Teacher diet. Though some food items changed, it was fine too overall. Then again, three months back, I switched back to BTD, after checking the 15-question program in this website. But then, I always follow the basic rules: I do not indulge in red meat (except occasional goat meat, allowed by teacher diet), avoid milk and most cheese but eat ghee and yogurt regularly, avoid potato and tomato, avoid banana, mangoe, orange/tangerine and recently stopped eating papaya (allowed by teacher diet). I will check body parameters in six months' time or so and see if there is some significant negative or positive change and then adjust some food items accordingly. As long as we have no major health challenge to combat, we can take the liberty of experimenting on ourselves too. Good luck!

"Type A" BTD diet made me feel terrible.  Explorer diet makes me feel great!  Gotta have the meat and hate the tofu.  I guess that's the trouble with cutting edge science is that it changes.

  Also, I found my colors recently!  I'm a Spring, not a Summer like I thought I was.  Now I glow gold instead of being a washed-out, sallow "blue" wannabe with graying hair.  Now my hair looks golden!  Amazing what you can do with warm/cool colors.


Ribbit,

How did you find your colors?

Answering on behalf of my Explorer wife....


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.

Up till now GTD is not really making me feel very good, but perhaps that's because it's working better and my body needs more adjusting (the headache I have really feels like a detox headache). So I am sticking with it. I should try at least three months before giving a conclusive answer.

yeah - I've been on GTD for 3 weeks and I currently have:

an infection
sore throat and ears
muscle twitches
low blood pressure / NO energy
sore, aching muscles
horrible skin
headache
weakness

I don't know what's going on, but I only hope it's detox.
I don't usually have too many ailments.

Mine may not be accurate, I put Secreter Teacher but it is really hard to say for sure... I respond so well to a lot of Teacher/Warrior things that I just am riding the fence and doing what works best right now.

I thought Teachers do not typically gain weight but several members of my family have made a good point to do so... not one of them eats like a Teacher/Warrior/Type A should however so if toxicity makes weight gain well then we know how to do it! In Youth several of us were real skinny, mostly my uncles and mother though. I got screwed up real early on. The other side too hard to say, but none are big weight gainers.

Plus everyone seems to fall into the medium frame on my mothers side of the family which is not warrior or teacher characteristic...

Hello everyone! I'm new to GTD, too. I was wondering, same as Samantha, if anyone can help with determining what type am I.
I recently bought the GTD book and went through the Intermmediate calculator. The results revealed that I am either The Explorer or The Warrior. When strength tested these two types (without the PROP test) I had 14 points for The Explorer and 6 points for The Warrior. But then I realised that I know my Rh and that I can go step further and check the Advanced Calculator. Although the advanced calculator requires you to know wheather you are a secretor or non-secretor it appeared that (since I am Rh plus) it doesn't metter-I am The Warrior. When I was reading The Warrior type I couldn't relate to almost anything said for the type. I am now totaly confused. I think that the principle behind the GTD is great but don't know how to start. What worries me even more is the fact that if I didn't know my Rh I'd confidently embark onto the program as The Explorere, while the Rh determined that I am The Warrior. I could've done more damage by following the wrong diet and lifestyle. I would really appreciate if someone has a wisdom or knowledge to understand and help with this typology.
My details are:
Torso longer
Lower leg longer
Index finger longer on both hands
Sensitive to coffee ( I'm drinking it but not after 5pm)
No depression, Alzheimer etc in the family
Two cases of heart disease and one diabetes in the family (one on each side of the family)
No cancer in the family
No autoimmune disease in the family
Fingerprint pattern
Right:Thumb-W, Index-W,Middle-L, Ring-L, Pinkie-L
Left:Thumb-W, Index-A,Middle-W, Ring-W, Pinkie-L
I have white lines accross the fingertips
I am not lefthanded
My knees are touching when standing with ankles together
My wrist tendons are not visible
wasn't sure about the body type. I have never been perceived as MASCULAR or LANKY in my life. However, whenI did the wrist test, my index finger and thumb were touching if not slightly overlapping
Teeth pattern: I couldn't feel any extra cusps on my front molars but there was no a distinct shovel like indentation on my incisor too
Square jaw (narrow gonial angle)
waist to Hip ratio:0.8 HIGH
Head Shaperachycephalic 0.9
Prop tester:didn't do it
Blood Type:A Rh plus
Pleeeeeese help
Thanks

I would start with the Warrior diet, as the Advanced Calculator takes precedence over all others in the book.  You can always stop eating a food if you find it doesn't do well in you...

Even though the Secretor information isn't needed for you using the advanced calculator, you may want to get the information to include if you want to get a more individualized plan with the SWAMI software.

Hi MK and welcome fellow Australian to this forum and way of life.

With your information and guided by the GT book, it looks like you are a warrior.  But that is a very generalized definition.  If you do not have any health issues or do  not need to lose much weight, it could be a good starting point. In the meantime you could keep on working to get as much information about yourself and your family medical history as you can, readying yourself for the time when you may want to acquire a license to get access to the more personalized lifestyle report given by Swami Xpress.

Whereabouts are you in Australia.  In Qld we can use QML with referral from a MD to get all the bood tests done to give us information on Secretor status, A1 A2 subtypes and more (as part of your normal anual blood check routine).

But, I do not want to overwhelm you, one step at the time.  Start with the Warrior diet and let us know how you are doing, paying attention to your body reactions.  That is something we all become very aware and focus on while in this journey...

Above all enjoy, have fun, tap onto your positive energy ... this way of life nurtures that ...

Thank you, ABJoe and Cristina,
You advice gave me the re-assurance I really needed to start on the diet. I'll try to keep you posted on the progress and I'm sure I'll have more questions down the track.
Cristina, I'm in Melbourne.
Thanks again

Hello, I am very new at this. Genotype diet has been suggested for me by a little quiz I took on this site. I am an A Pos blood type. My basic genotype calculator came out Nomad when I did the strength testing. Then I looked at the Intermediate since I knew my blood type and it said 3 or 4. Which type should I go with, or are there suggestions as to how I figure that out?

Thanks

Lasse, you show remarkable prescience here, as of course we now know that Dr Peter did go on to individualize the GTD 'clusters' by making it possible for us to fine tune them with the 'swami' material. Hope you are still on line, and sharing our journey.

Welcome Cyn!
You can strength test either GT3 or GT4 at the back of the Genotype book.
Do the measurements and read about both all the way through.
I am also A+ and I came out closest to GT3 but wonder about the possibility of being an explorer. We need to get our Swami's to know for sure.

Not sure I understand how the genotype calculator pegged you as a Nomad, seeing as you have type A blood.
