Hi, I've been having success on the Hunter genotype and my measurements and blood type all pointed to the Hunter.  I am now having a lot of fatique lately and can barely stay awake during the day.  Although I do see some other improvements my energy is really low.  To be honest I haven't been totally compliant but about 90% and the last 2-3 days completely compliant diamonds.  

The thing is I looked back into the book, and did my strength tests and found that I scored a 23 on Nomad and a 16 on Hunter  without the PROP taster test.  I have the characteristics of a nomad more than a Hunter.  Although the Hunter is close Nomad is more like me although I'm not a B, I'm an O.  What should I trust?

IMO, trust Dr. D's research, trust your blood type with your secretor status, and your measurements. We can all strength-test out differently.
For instance, I have a lot of Explorer traits.

you can't be a Nomad unless you are a B or AB..too much stress can fatigue an O...have to make sure you exercise as this invigorates and at the same time reduces the stress adrenaline axis in O's.

nomad is not an option for O's.

After two years of following the type O diet (because my mother told me with such great certainty that I'm an "O"), I actually tested myself today and found out that I'm an "A".

This changes everything, including my genotype.  I'm now an "Explorer".

saverain,
I am a hunter and experiencing something similar.  I was going back to just diamonds for a few weeks (or so I thought) to jump start a weight loss plateau I had hit, but I got very tired, even when I wake up in the morning.  

I was feeling really dragged out one day, when my gatherer husband (who has reached his goal weight), wanted to go have an ice cream cone.  I went with him and had a baby sized vanilla soft serve custard (no cone).  I perked right up - I couldn't believe it.  This led me to believe that I am not getting enough complex carbs.  I guess I have been neglecting this category lately...but there are no diamond ones.

I have also noticed that I have had a few headaches that have been relieved by putting a teaspoon of demorara (sp?) sugar into my green tea.  Years ago my naturopath muscled tested me for sugars and this was the only sugar that was okay for me.  It is a very sticky sugar, I think it still has some of the molasses in it.  I get it in Canada.

I know that these sugary things are not the long term answer, but I think that from a seasonal aspect, I have decided to eat foods that span the diamond - neutral food lists for the summer.

Im excited about having the Swami done at the TN mini conference in October.    Ive never been comfortable with the Explorer diet.  I like the BTD.  Maybe a tweaked diet just for me will answer  some questions.

Wow!

Would your secretor status no longer be valid as well? Since they ask for your bloodtype I assumed they only test against what you tell them.

IceBearRon, well at least now you know and can move forward. I tested my grandson and because he fiddled and fussed we got a wrong blood type of AB. When he was in the hospital though we found out he was a B...Aani  


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 have the most points for Nomad also, even tho I am an O.

Is this some kind of allergy season for you?
Do you have a personal food allergy--something that is designated for your GT, but to which you are personally allergic.  Is there some stress in your life?

I have a mild allergy this time of year & it should be ending, but since the weather has been cooler & the planting season late, I'm sure it isn't over. Then I have the stress about my aunt along with other normal stresses. I am trying to get more sun, which is good as we have a short sun season, but I know that I have to go gradually. However, there isn't enough time to go gradually. Maybe the sun has overstimulated something!

Also, as we all detox, it affects us differently!
Just some ramblings....

ARe you serious?


Surreal and shocking as it is, especially to me, I promise you that I am totally serious.

I only did the test last night -- twice, mind you, because the first one was so unbelievable -- and both times it came up "A"... and Rh-positive, no less.

I was actually wrong about being an "Explorer", though.  I misread the charts.  As my ring fingers are slightly longer on both hands and, if I've measured my torso/leg measurements correctly, I'm a "Teacher".

I apologize for all the confusion and tumult I've possibly caused, but I've learned a very valuable lesson through all of this:  verify your sources!

IceBear, regardless of whether you decide to follow the BTD or the GTD, I'll be interested to know how you fare. Do keep us updated.

On another note, I second (or third?) the suggestion to donate blood -- if you are eligible -- to be typed "for sure".

Well, after hearing some of the horror stories about hospital and blood bank mistypings, I'm actually more inclined to trust the home kit I just used -- especially considering that it gave the same result both times.

That's my concern, too.  I just emailed them today but, since it's the weekend, It'll probably be this upcoming week sometime before I hear back with a definitive answer.

I had to donate some blood for my own surgery many years ago; and since then I've been donating blood at various blood banks, depending on where I'm living. Every time I've come up A+, so that's where my experience comes from.

If you feel confident that the two home tests gave you your correct blood type, go with that. One thing I think we humans don't do enough of is trust ourselves and our judgment.

Turns out I'm an A+ and a teacher.  The O type diet has worked for me so never took the test.  I don't know how I'm going to transition.  I'll try I guess.  I don't feel confortable with the foods listed but we'll see.

Yeh, I don't have many of the physical characteristics it describes for a teacher and a lot of the foods listed make my muscles ache but I'm going to stick with it and see if it works in the long run.  Just a little down about the whole thing but hopefully it'll end up good in the long run.

Do you feel like the type O diet worked well for you?

Well we both like shakespeare so that's a common teacher thing maybe?

If the O diet worked for you, I would think that you are more likely to be an explorer than a teacher (But i may think wrong, very wrong).

Using your more measurements and the advanced calculator,
would a nonsecretor status make you an explorer??

If you are a teacher, I certainly hope the diet works for you-It is a lot different than the O diet.

Maybe you can get used to ostrich(if you can afford it!) & turkey is nice. Ostrich with seasonings can pass for mild beef. I gave it to my AB husband a few times as I think beef is hurting him. He likes beef in small doses & I don't force him to go on the diet. But I try to steer him that way gently.
[You don't tell Greek men what to do!(Really he isn't as bad as many of them, but the Greek genes are there! )]
Dairy is bad for both As & Os, so that is one biggie that you don't have to change. I just know you are going to do so much better!!!!
