Thanks for your input guys....  I am certainly not calm enough to be a teacher which would
be the only other type I could be IF my torso turned out to be longer or equal to my legs.

I don't feel very teacher-like at all....so  I guess I'm back to the Warrior diet with some lingering rebellion on the part of my mind and body.  It's not that I wanted to be an Explorer particularly, it's just that I keep flipping back to their characteristics in the book  and feel so many Explorer traits are mine too~

I guess there isn't any point in knowing what my fingerprints look like or finding out if
I'm a prop taster, right?  What I mean to say is that it wouldn't change my overall results
given my measurements are the final determinant.  Is this a correct assumption?  Measurements are the most important way to type yourself once you know your BT, rh factor and secretor status?

I doubt many of us here fit our genotype perfectly.
I don't fit every aspect of the Explorer. One example is that my fingerprints are symmetrical. But over all it does feel "right".


I am a symmetrical Explorer too on all accounts. All 4 fingers measured were identical in length, give or take 1 mm. The diet feels right regardless.


I'm onto you, 'euphoria'

I think measuring torso length is far easier by just sitting on floor with your back against wall and then have someone marking your height using a levelled book or even by yourself using some right angle tool.

I agree! It's much easier. I measured my mom that way.

Absolutely hooked to some soy food and now I'm trying to kick the habit. Jaundice may have been due to tons of apricots and spinach that has went down. I even used to drink carrot juice daily years ago. Some slight inclination to food addictions maybe.


Hi again Proto,

I used to be hooked on soy foods, too. I have often been hooked on various foods, including carrots. I definitely am inclined to food addictions. My latest thing is romaine lettuce. I guess sometimes it can mean allergies, but I think that my body is needing certain nutrients, too.

I got hungry thinking of the great rye bread you have in your area. I can't eat gluten at all. I had to give it up. But wow, that bread must be great. I understand why you indulge!

Hi All,

I'm not sure if I am an Explorer or Warrior, but hoping not to be
an Explorer as I live in Japan and soy sauce is used in many, many
dishes.

Most commerical soy sauce has too many chemicals, like sugar, coloring, wheat, and so on. The trick is to purchase soy sauce made
from organic beans and prepared in the traditional Japanese way. Macriobiotic soy sauce should be safe and some stores in the States
should have it. Why is soy sauce a no-no?

By the way, my lower leg (37cm) is slightly longer than the upper leg
(36cm) which shows Warrior for A+. But, I have a whorl on my index
finger and a loop on my right hand (Explorer). My head is square and
broad (Explorer) but my blood type does not fit. As to caffeine, I can
drink it in small amounts. Anything more than 1~2 cups and I am in
trouble (heart races).

I'm pretty sure for gatherers, not sure about explorers, but the no soy sauce is because of soy's estogenic (sp?) properties. For gathrers pretty much anything soy related is out. Fermented or not.

And while I'm at it, is there any condiment left worth putting on a salad or sandwich?  Assuming there is anything left to make a sandwich of. I don't think I did well with spelt bread.  Turkey on a rice cake is not a sandwich but it would taste better with a condiment... not honey thank you.



It looks like cream cheese is neutral for you and cranberries are superfoods so whole cranberry sauce (you'd have to make your own with a suitable sugar substitute) with cream cheese would be delish with turkey. Or maybe you could mash up some whole cranberries right in the cream cheese.

Northstar,

Measurements trump any strength testing (fingerprints, head shape, etc.). I am very close on strength testing between Hunter and Nomad but my measurements say I'm a Nomad. You may identify with traits across many GTs but the torso/leg/finger measurements override it all.

That is what others have told me. Anyway, I am sticking with the Warrior diet and guidelines and doing quite well on it. I have lost weight and feel full energy! So, Warrior it is! Thumbs up for GTD!

Yum, good options.  I've got some unsweetened cranberry juice in the fridge, maybe a little of that with some cream cheese would work with a little agave syrup.  If it ends up too liquid for a rice cake it would still be a good salad dressing.    I wonder if a little pecan meal to thicken it up would taste ok?  Worth trying.
