I just finished the testing for the Genotype Diet and I am a Nomad. I instinctively knew I was a Nomad from reading the description a few weeks ago (it was the definition of me) but I am glad to have the test to back up the hypothesis.

I match almost everything about Nomads exactly EXCEPT I don't have white lines. I have one, maybe two, short/faint white lines on my thumb prints but that's it.

If I am reading the information correctly, does that mean I am better able to process gluten?

I would assume that even if I CAN process gluten, doesn't mean I should disregard wheat as being an avoid for me, right?

(I would like to lose weight so I will avoid gluten for now, but I do have a fondness for the occasional piece of crusty white bread with my cheese and would hope for that occasionally in the future.)

I bought the Catalyst and Activator supplements and am hopeful they really kick start my metabolism and well being (although I am ridiculously healthy... not sure how much more healthy I could get from here but I look forward to finding out!).

It is so joyful to read through the Nomad diet because the vast majority of my diamond foods are things I LOVE and CRAVE naturally so this will be the easiest diet plan ever.

My only adjustments are that I need to stop drinking cow's milk and orange juice (not that big of a deal).

I will be sure and post again with my progress as I see how many diamond foods I can eat everyday!

Welcome Nomad!

I have the white lines.  I take it as having already put yourself into a gluten sensitive zone by eating too much of it.

I don't know about the gluten.  I never felt well until I stopped eating it completely about a year and a half ago.  If the occasional bit slips in when I'm not aware of it, such as eating at someone's house, it's ok.  But on a regular basis, it does not do me good.

I don't think nomads are recommended to eat it.  Where did you read that it is good for us?

Apologies if my questions were confusing. What I stated was that my fingerprints lack white lines and if I am reading everything correctly that means I am NOT gluten intolerant (aka I can eat it and feel fine).

My question was... even though I CAN eat it I still shouldn't be, right?

I didn't know if my lack of white lines meant that I was a type of Nomad that could eat wheat (gluten). Is that clearer?

Onehorse,

I take it that since you don't eat it then it is Not showing up on your fingerprints.  

I thought the white lines in the fingerprints are an indicator to someone that they should consider eliminating gluten because it is effecting that person.

I'm going to google it. There are reg. MDs that use this test. Listen to the interview with Dr. Oz and Dr. D.  They mention it.

if wheat is a super or diamond food for your GT, then it s ok to include it in your diet.

I am full of white lines.....but that doesn t necessarily mean I am gluten intolerant.....besides, it s been 11 years since I haven t had wheat!

Welcome Nomad!...

I seem to have very few, very faint white lines...  perhaps because I had inadvertantly already stopped eating wheat back in January when I gave up most cooked/processed foods. Actually, I need to update my fingerprints to compare with a year ago. I had prints done at the local PD for work, but I haven't repeated them yet. I'm curious to find out if I have less lines now....

About bread and cheese...
I've started adding back in a few more cooked foods lately, and I highly recommend the flaxseed bread recommended on another thread. It's easy to adapt to our GTD.

If you have a dehydrator, I highly recommend making flax crackers. One of my projects for the coming week is tweaking my recipe to fit our Nomad choices. Having to leave out tomatos and a few other ingredients, I'll be experimenting with alternatives. I need to have something crispy in the form of a cracker/chip, and NOTHING on the store shelfs is ok. If dehydrated at low temps, you have a wonderfully nutritious cracker to enjoy a bit of cheese...  and we have such great choices!

Hi One Horse Farms,

I purchased the fingerprint test kit from Dr D's webiste and fingerprinted each finger. I was surprised the white lines were moderate on my right hand and faint on my left hand. I am 50 years old and had maybe too much gluten for my body over my life. I really have cut it back drastically the last 5 years. I am still surprised one hand is different than the other. I wonder if others found the same thing to be true.

Congratulations onehorse!!!

I can't wait to say I'm amazingly healthy.  I'm jealous.  Maybe that day is coming.  I think I'm an EX Nomad becoming a teacher and agree that Nomads seem to have the best diet there is.  But that's OK, I just want to feel good.  

Now someone needs to link that 80's song "White Lines" and this thread would be even more funny!!!!

Good Point about the BTD/GTD co-relation. I will take that into account and limit my white bread consumption BUT since I am absent of white lines I won't stress about the occasional consumption.

Yep, he's a gluten-free Nomad.   And I'm used to being "ostrichsized."     I have some very unique views that many don't share with me.

You've done so much in your short life & now you can shoot a gun, too! Wow!  Too bad venison is not compiant for all types. There are lots of deer in certain Illinois areas & there have been more car accidents due to them.  I think they attract other animals. We think we have seen a bobcat as well as wolves in East Central Illinois.  A few years ago, someone said that a badger was suspected to be in that area(or was it seen?). Badgers never went that far south before.
Keep the milk in Wisconsisn & maybe we can take some of your badgers! Are they edible? Can you tell I'm an O!?
Cheerio,

BTW, we're having VBS next week. They sure have some fancy programs, but it's a fun time for the kids & I hope they learn a lot.

Keep us posted as to when some of his white lines start disappearing.  It would be interesting to know.

So what's your carry piece?  Revolver or pistol?  We are one of the few states that DOESN'T allow CCW.  Or should I say there is no legislation in place.  It's all screwed up though.  Case law has sided with people that have, and had to defend themselves.  Yet there is no system for permitting and the law that stands is 100 years old that allows outside carry.  Yet if you did that in Downtown Milwaukee, the cops can slap a disorderly conduct on you and take your firearm away.

And in Illinois, OH BOY!  

Badgers are protected here, so I have no idea how they taste.  I've killed a few deer in my time and ate quite a bit.  For a Nomad it would be neutral, and I was looking forward to it, but now if I'm a teacher, it's a deal killer.  It's been a couple of years since I've hunted because of my health.  But I'd really like to get back into it.  When the turkeys start overrunning you, just give me a hollar!!!!!!  Hehehehehehhe.

Wolves???????  That's a little scary.  I've never seen a Wolf.  I you sure you're not thinking of Coyotes?  Coyotes are everywhere.  I've tried to hunt them a few times but didn't have enough time to scout where they were.  Funny thing is I heard them howling near my house last summer.  And the last place I lived I saw and heard them.  In the last NRA mag there was a confirmed attack of a Coyote on a baby.  That is a first to me.  Usually they just go after little pets.  I know, I know, it's our fault because of urban sprawl.  It is what it is.  If they're going after your kids, I don't think you'd care about the animal, sprawl or no sprawl.

.38 Special.  My favorite used to be 9 mm Glock, and I was pretty accurate with it, and I liked having 13 shots, but after I tried the .38 I was hooked.  Love it.  Don't like only having 5 shots, but hopefully if I get mugged it won't be by a group.

Well, I know yours isn't a Colt Detective Special like I have, because it holds 6.  You must have a S&W.  I like my G19.  It holds 15.  You must have the 26.  Or wait, maybe yours was in .40 S&W caliber?  

Anyways, be safe and shoot straight!
