There was a request in the genotype percentages thread to know genotype percentages by blood type.

Here is a survey.

Can't vote yet as I don't know for sure. I'm excited because I'll be getting my book on Saturday, so most of my time will be spent reading and measuring. I will be back on Monday to post the results.   Can't wait can't wait can't wait!

It never hurts to verify the measurements, but if these are correct, Welcome to Warrior-ville.  I have been feeling like this diet fits better than the pure AB diet did...  Hopefully, you will feel the same when you start eating this way.

I have been going kind-of up and down for a while, so I'm waiting for a bit to be really exuberant...

Well, finally decided to cast my vote...yeah!! I'm a Warrior too! Joseph's a Teacher, so that's no surprise to me! (cause he is one anyway! )

Sure don't seem many of us?
I've really got to wait for my book to arrive to read all about everything but have had a look at the food lists for us...some changes but not so many.

So far I have measured a Worrier---ahem...uh, Warrior, but when I read the characteristics, it's just not me.  I'm not Choleric.  I'm not nimble-minded.  Actually, I am very much except sometimes when my brain completely shuts down, which is often.  When I exert myself, I'm very nimble-minded, but it takes a lot out of me.  I don't "pursue a mental challenge inexorably until it is mastered."  I give up very easily when it comes to a mental challenge.  So Biometrically and Biochemically, I'm a Warrior, but Psychologically, I'm not at all.

I don't have ox-like strength.  I've always considered myself pretty weak, but then struggling with food allergies all my life might be the cause of that.  Oooh, although there was that time in 8th grade when I beat the class jock at arm wrestling.  Hm.  I don't recover well from illness.  If I don't take a couple extra days to recover from something, I relapse.  Usually the day I begin to feel better, I jump up, run around and overdo myself because I feel so much better, but then it ends me up right back in bed sicker than I was to begin with.  I wasn't a beautiful specimen in youth.  Unless you call 30 youthful.  I think I look better now than I ever have, thanks to the BTD.  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.

Maybe some of this is my view of myself. Kinda like the ecto/endomorphic body type.  I looked at it and said, "That's me, the endomorph," and my husband said, "No it's not; you're just like me.  An ectomorph."  My fingers wrap WAY around my wrists.  But my trunk is thick.  Not fat, just thick. And it doesn't have anything to do with having three babies.  I've always been thick through the trunk and skinny through the limbs.

Maybe I am choleric, instead of a melancholy, and my cholericness was always squelched by my older, meaner choleric brother and my choleric mother.  Maybe I do recover well from illness (which is why I bounce back with tons of energy) and I just need a few more immune-enhancing herbs to keep me from relapsing.  My mom always said that IF I got sick as a child, it was something major, but I never ran a very high fever.  I got 2 colds a year, when the seasons changed, but the colds were severe and lasted at least a month.  I read in a parenting magazine last year that children nowadays get on average 6-9 colds a year.  That's insane.

My motto is more like, "I'll do it my way," not "Time flies when you're having fun."  I used to tell my mom, "You know, I don't mind you telling me what to do, but please don't tell me how to do it."

Okay, I'll stop thread-hogging.  This diet is amazing to me and I'll do what I can to change and enhance what I'm doing.  I love it, which is why I'm here all the time.  It's my life now.  Thanks, everybody, for taking part in such an important part of my life.  Y'all are such good buddies.  *sigh*  *sniffff*  I love you all.  *sigh*

Ribbit, when I finally found that I was a Spring not a Summer as I had been told for about 20 years, the joy of wearing orange and chartreuse were palpable. Along with the BTD I started looking 10 years younger. I was mistaken for my brother or sister's child at a family funeral. Now, with the GTD I plan to continue this game of trop d'oeil or whatever you call it.Instead of being boring grey I am a kind of moggie mixed blond which is rather fun.(with a bit of chemical help of course). Life has always been a bit of an adventure for me
despite a very conservative core, and I have had an equal number of highs and lows but always came out a survivor. My children speak of my ability to reinvent myself after every disaster. I think they have learned from my life how to avoid  disasters simply by observation. So its not all bad.
cheers,
Jenny Warrior

I went straight to the Advanced Calculator because all my meauserements were easily verified.
Then I immediately went on the Warior diet, and I am elated with the results.
I have lost some weight which is a welcome outcome already. since i gain in the winter.  Now I don't have to wait for summer and all the weight losing activity.
As I have said on another thread...start the diamonds and supers and don't look back.
And they say old people can't change!!

Hi Ruthie,

You seem to have created a new Genotype - Old Warrior. I like what Dr. D. says " if you are a Warrior GenoType, with modest effort you can get back into great shape and give yourself a second "silver age" of health and vitality." Wondering if you are already in that second "silver age".

Dr. D. said that you won't have all the attributes of the Geno type that you are, you could have attributes of others but he also said there can't be a split like Warrior-Explorer or something like that.

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?

Susie, there's a book called "Color Me Beautiful" that became popular in the '80s that tells you all about warm vs. cool colors and how to tell which you should wear based on your skin tone, whether it's got yellow undertones or if it's just white ("blue" undertones).  Makes a big difference once you know what you're looking for and what colors to wear.

My understanding is that if you are A there are only four
choices:

Warrior
Teacher
Explorer
Nomad

If you are A+ and secretor you are either Warrior or Teacher.
As I have been told time again, stick to the torso/leg, lower leg/upper leg and finger measurements.

For example, if your torso is longer than your legs, your
lower legs longer than the upper ones and the index fingers are
longer than than your ring fingers and you are A+ then you are
a Warrior.

Keep us posted and good luck. (Took me a week to figure out what I was.)

A's will be either Teachers, Warriors or Explorers. Those are our only options. What are your measurements Tipitee? If you have the book, use the advanced tables in the back, if not post them and we can help you out.

So my intuition was right, I am a warrior.
Not too much of a change from the A non sec diet, but I will miss the chicken and turkey. I am happy that I can eat anchovies and green olives ! and chocolate as super super yum yum always knew that 87% chocolate I was eating was good 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

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.

Listen, this is what I think: I think we can't go around measuring our goodness by what we don't do, by what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we've got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include. Pere Henri (Chocolat)

I've gone back over the measurements etc. and believe I'm a Teacher instead.


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!

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...

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!

  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?

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

Quoted from 1415
Sept 9 2008

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


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.

Ok, after doing some checking and rechecking, Teacher and explorer come up. I don't know my secretor status, or I could narrow that down. Will have to decide if I really need to do that or not. All of this is very interesting!

Cyn,
I am sort of the same way. I feel good with the teacher diet but am going to get Swami this month and hopefully fine tune between teacher and explorer.
The secretor status does have a slight impact on diet regarding avoids and superfoods, etc.

But until you do the secretor test, you can try one diet and see how it fits you.  You really have nothing to lose, and if you feel awful, try the other one.

feel awful is a bit exaggerated.....again, it all depends on how far you wish to go, to determine more about your individuality, like secretor status, subtype of A, MN status, even mitochondrial dna haplogroup,....aso

all in all, you ll be eating far better than the SAD diet out there, or a diet not fit to your physiology, like Atkins for an A, and vegetarian for an O ......

this is a journey of self discovery, and it needs to be fun!!!

Teacher vs Explorer for an A can be very difficult to sort out because there is so much that is similar.

I would pay close attention to the dental and dermatoglypic differences.  We had the greatest trouble with my wife - an unusual A + sec Explorer.  Personality and exercise habits/reactions are also a key place to observe differences.  Genotyping is an art form of a science.

Paul,
This is what I am going through, also. Chloe just mentioned something similar on another thread. We feel we are teachers but with many explorer tendencies.
Just curious, would your wife be ISFJ?
What do you observe as different exercise/personality traits between the two genotypes?

The thing is that I have 4 whorl fingerprints which is very typical of a Teacher....(and possibly 6 because two I can't read....so, on the slight assumption that the invisible prints could be whorls, I listed 6 whorls in my SWAMI intake)....but I'm also an A2...which is very Teacher-like too...but I have no real obvious wrist tendons...(subtract that Teacher characteristic but I'm still a Teacher).  Still when it comes to allergies, this is where the BTD diet for type A (which I followed for almost 20 years) was a bit different. I ate no dairy and no eggs for all those years..
I didn't have nasal allergies...but I did have fibromyalgia and following my SWAMI seemed to
have (almost) resolved it.  So that's huge.  I'm not sure if all that soy was the cause of my
fibro/chronic fatigue/mood issues...but I was eating a low animal food diet when I followed
the BTD for A and right now, the more protein I eat from fish/poultry/lamb, the better I feel.
I just thought the A diet was too low in animal protein for me...so I've got tons of energy now,
which I didn't have before.

And as far as eating the meats that an Explorer can eat....I think I'd be fine on most of them
and be better off not eating the eggs (which I'm pretty sure could be responsible for my often stuffy left ear -- which sometimes starts hissing like in tinnitus).  These are things I didn't eat on the BTD...(but I am much older now and who knows).  Explorers don't get chicken eggs...
And soy foods are generally not digestible in my body. (Explorers don't get lots of soy).  My
best soy would be natto in pill form and sprouted soy which is in Live Cell A.  As far as
actually eating soy foods, I rarely do it.

I'm not left handed...most Explorers are...and this lopsided left side of the body vs. right
side is only evident in my jaw...which seems to be a bit off center...as it is with my sisters...
and we all have TMJ...Is TMJ an explorer thing?

Only once did SWAMI call me an Explorer...I played around with my intake form and managed
to get SWAMI to change me from being a Teacher.  Yet, are there many A2 Explorers?  I
never did follow the Explorer diet...It doesn't seem right, yet the Teacher diet isn't 100%
right either due to the cheese I know I'd do better without.  I eat it sometimes...and then
decide I'm better off without it.

And I don't think I'm that allergic.  My sister is....I'm pretty sure she's an Explorer although she's right handed too.

It's mainly the cheese on the Teacher's Diet that I'm not sure about...I go back and forth
between eating it (then craving it), giving it up (forgetting about it), going back to it...and then
wondering should I just avoid it completely.

I would think if I were an Explorer then SWAMI wouldn't have helped my fibromyalgia....I've
got more energy than I've ever had...So I don't think the wrong diet would cause improvements
quite this profound.

I'm pretty sure if we had the professional SWAMI done, our diets could be further refined...
but still, the cheese perplexes me.  It causes lots of mucous and that doesn't seem like a good
thing.

Thanks, Chloe....
I sort of identify with the cheese thing. I can eat many that don't bother me but know those to stay away from!
You and I are both right handed, Rh+, and secretors......none are hallmarks of an explorer. You have the hallmark whorl fingerprints and I the hallmark very visible tendons of teachers.
Were either of your parents bloodtype O ?  My dad is an O- explorer, my Mom is A+...apparently being an Ao falls in line with explorers.
I am going to re-run my swami and look deeper. You are probably correct about the professional swami. Experts and all....

I don't know if I am imagining it, but I ate a lot of feta last week and it's the best I have felt in a long time. I kept trying to work out what had made the difference and that was all I could put it down to. I even had some avoids (although in pretty small quantities as we had quests staying) and I still felt great. I then realised I wasn't feeling quite so good for the last few days and last night I had some feta again and I am feeling great this morning.
Again, it could be just coincidence and I am eating WAY more feta than SWAMI advises to, in fact I eat a lot more cheese and yoghurt as well as more ghee than I should, but I have been feeling great. I made spelt bread yesterday and ate far too much of it and expected to feel bad later, but I didn't!!

I have been following the GTD for only a few days and already feel a bit better.  I was going to wait and see how I did before investing in swami or secretor testing but I just squeezed out the money and jumped in.  I should get both items today and can't wait to see what is recommended for me.

It will be interesting to see what swami says as I know my body does not like eating low fat at all. I am betting I am a non-secretor.

According to the Advanced Calculator in the GTD book, you are a Warrior.

We didn't have the ratio of Upper to Lower leg length, but the results are the same in either case.

I feel like I ought to go back to the drawing board.  I might be a teacher and not an explorer after all.  Something about adding nuts back into my diet and trying to eat protein other than yogurt, and I just have NO energy. Eating additional fat is just making me crave sugar. I felt better before I started trying to fix what wasn't broken....

Not yet.

Rh negative.
Torso & legs are of equal length.
Lower leg longer than upper leg (I think I measured it right).
Index and ring fingers are of equal length.
No whorls; 6 loops; 4 arches (arches are on index and middle fingers)
Average waist-to-hip ratio (.73)
History of cancer in family.
No history of heart disease or diabetes in family.
Jaw is not square -- it is more angled.
Tendons are very visible in the hands, less so in the wrists.
Zero tolerance for perfumes and cigarette smoke.
Good caffeine tolerance in general but am more sensitive to coffee than tea.
Poor tolerance for almonds, eggs, red meat, coconut, etc.  Eating fat and protein pretty much guarantees I will feel lousy
Cheese ok in moderation and yogurt always ok.

I might be better off just sticking to the BTD until I find out the secretor status.  Then, skip this stuff that is making me neurotic, and just get the swami!

Or, I'm a "teachwarplorer."

Smugalert,
Do you have a long face or head shape? That would be warrior. Leg measurements are important, also. My swami puts me at 41% teacher with andric opening and at 40% explorer with gynic. Only the warriors have the longer lower leg...both teachers and explorers have shorter lower legs.
When you do a swami it details the strengths, etc. to give you an accurate account of your genotype. I don't have any whorls but have extremely visible wrist tendons so strength test highest at teacher.

My face is not long or narrow, nor is my head. I'm not sure I'm measuring the legs correctly.  The upper legs touch at the knees. I just went back to eating the old way that was working until I get more of that old bloodwork back.  I don't think the swami would be useful until I have that bloodwork.

Ahh! My mother has those intestinal spasms when she eats meat or too much cheese!

You are eating well, Marie! Good for you! C'est bon!

I am trying to eat better, also. No wheat gluten!

I'm a male type A- Non-secretor with a shorter torso, longer upper legs, and slightly longer index fingers.  The book said I'm an Explorer.  However, I think SWAMI gave a more accurate result as a Teacher.   Keep in mind these are only archetypes, so no one matches the average description of a genotype exactly.

Johnny,
My blood test for food intolerance showed that I reacted pretty high to yeast so I try not to eat anything with it. I found out on my own that I don't do soy very well either. The verdict is still out on corn...if anything it may make more mucus. I don't eat corn or hfcs but once in awhile will make my own chips from fresh corn tortillas.
I also am a teacher but with severalstrong explorer tendencies. I eat my swami diet(41%teacher) but always am mindful of my first swami run at 38% explorer. When I compared each print out the 2 diets did not have too many major differences.
I agree about not matching exactly, we are all unique.
I am curious, because of your intolerances, what your typical daily meals consist of?

Marie,
There are days when I feel very explorer-like and my swami "teacher" diet isn't very different so I am fortunate, no? J'espere tu fais bien!

yes I'm Cajun between the professor and explorer because I see the meat allows me to keep longer without food cravings ...... I'm not really a vegetarian but sometimes I like to be a few meals and other times I feel like a good prime rib!

Cajun,
I myself am 42% Teacher.  The white lines on my fingerprints suggest that I'm gluten sensitive.  This would make sense because non-secretors don't have free-floating antigens acting as decoys.  Gluten is essentially indigestible and acts as an abrasive sandpaper on the intestinal villi.  This allows for undigested food particles (such as from soy and yeast) to penetrate the damaged intestinal wall into the blood where they're seen as foreign invaders.  This may be the underlying cause of the allergies in the first place.  Does this strike a cord with you?

Johnny,
Yes! It all makes sense. thanks for a different explanation.
I have suspected that the gluten and yeast were my worst enemies, even though I am increasingly careful with my dairy, sticking to sheep cheese, yogurt and ghee..once in awhile I can tolerate my neutral cheeses and it does not affect my sinuses. I made the mistake, this week, of eating something that I swore I would only eat in France because it is soooo much better there. Wow! I sure paid for it! I ate compliant chicken salad on a tempting croissant.. so, yeah, the yeast and gluten are deadly!!!!

Marie,
Oui! Je sais! Quelque temps j'ai besoin de turkey or poisson, mais pas de beef! My stomach cannot digest red meat at all! C'est bon. J'adore legumes!

I just wanted to weigh in once more and say: "exteachorior" for me......

I eat a full explorer type A breakfast ( a la swami )
Have one short leg and scoliosis, "muscular" overweight, shoveled incisors (explorer)
Have wrist tendons and only left hand showing gut issues (teacher)
Have oblong head and short temper and blush easily (warrior)

Only continuing for the long-term on swami will tell me how much more of my genetics will tip the scale either way

Happy 4th of July American BTDers! I see this poll pop up occasionally on the latest forum posts so I thought I should reply since I'm a type A. I was originally rated an Explorer from the book, but SWAMI made me a 40% Warrior. I know it may have been a risk entering my secretor data as a non-secretor when this hasn't been confirmed via a saliva test, but from what I've read about non-secretors I feel quite certain that I am one. In particular, the place on the website which explains the differences between secretors and non-secretors mentions A secretors having the lowest incidence of cavities (statistically speaking of course). I have had LOTS of cavities over the years including many root canals. I even just recently had to have a crown replaced over a tooth that was root canaled many years ago because there was decay forming under the crown, something I had never heard was possible. My mom was diagnosed with severe gum disease in her early 20's and had all her teeth pulled before I was even born. She definitely seems like she has non-secretor tendencies, so I probably inherited my non-secretor status from her.

Anyway, I'm proud to be an American Warrior! Greetings to all you international A's also!
