ABNW, there's no rush to get on the GTD.  I pre-ordered the book and got it in December, but didn't start doing GTD until about a month ago.  I dipped my toe in it, and from reading it and experimenting I discovered my gluten intolerance, but I mostly stayed with BTD until last month.

I believe BTD was a better diet for me up to that point, because I was still quite sickly.  GTD does a lot of remodeling, while BTD mostly cleans and repairs the house.  I needed to get the cleaning up and repairs done before I was ready to start the serious remodeling (i.e. the epigenetic reprogramming of GTD).  If you still feel like you are improving on the AB diet, stick with it a while longer.  If you are having trouble with your weight, eat more grains.  I know you're trying to kill off the candida, but maybe it would be better to do it in bursts.  Go a few weeks on that diet, then relax and eat more starches and sugars for a couple of weeks.  Three weeks of total warfare again that alien was all I could stand, and I lost 10 lbs. over that time.  I still haven't regained, but at least I'm holding steady now.

You know, I just thought about something.  You could try what I'm thinking about doing with my daughter.  As an AB she's supposed to do well with soy and peanuts.  Both make her sick.  I tend to think that she's a Nomad because of this.  She's dairy-intolerant and allergic to eggs too, which doesn't make any sense, but if she's a Nomad at least the soy and peanuts makes sense.  What I'm saying is this:  Maybe you can make better sense of the food lists themselves rather than worrying about your measurements.  Is there a particular food list that fits you better?  Do you find yourself looking at one particular beneficial list and saying, "I don't feel good when I eat those"?  Chances are, that's not the list for you.

That's not a bad idea.  But what would be the difference in doing that compared to following the BTD and staying away from things I know are no good for me?  

  
As far as which genotype list feels best to me, I can't make the call.  There are foods that work and don't work for me on more than one list.  And there are also traits I can identify with very strongly in more than one of those.  Especially the Teacher and the Nomad.  Maybe some people can relate to one type more than any of the others.  Like my Mom.  We measured her, we found her as a Gatherer.  She fits the description real well, and she said she felt even better once she started doing it.  She hasn't lost a ton of weight.  But some, and she has a little more energy overall than BTD.  It just hasn't been that clear cut for me.  I do admit, I don't feel like I was getting worse doing the Nomad.  But I did lose 9 lbs that I didn't really want to.

Ribbit: I'd be very careful with that line of thinking. As you know, I'm an AB, too. However, I do not do very well with peanuts or soy either. Peanuts give me heartburn and tempeh and many other soy products make me sick to my stomach, etc. and I originally thought I was a Nomad. Turned out I am a Teacher - yet another supposedly soy & peanut friendly type...but not for this particular AB GT3. I know that the GT3 is the correct diet for me though. I've been following it since the day after Christmas and there have been far too many positive changes for me since then for it to be the wrong diet.

ABNoWay: My apologies for hijacking your thread.

Chanur, do you plan on trying soy and peanuts again one day to see if your body has healed enough to handle them?  You make a valid point.  And the AB nonnie diet has done her wonders, but she still has stomach aches and headaches (including migraines) and she needs a chiropractic adjustment at least once a week.  Something's still not quite right.

Don't feel bad about hijacking.  All banter is welcome here.  I think Chanur makes a good point.  I personally don't think everyone that knows their GTD for sure, still won't have some issues with certain foods.  Because we are all different.  That's why there is the SWAMI.  Otherwise, why would that be necessary?  At the same time, I can see why you, ribbit, would want to figure out her genotype to see if there is some positive changes that could happen with it.

Furthermore, My doctor is really not up on soy for anyone.  He does realize it may be better for some than others, but he says there are things in a lot of soy products that are toxins for everyone.  Maybe he's wrong.  I realize this is a controversial thing.  Same goes for Gluten.  I think they pretty much recommend everyone be gluten free, if you're having issues.   Even A's.  At least for a little while.  He believes in the BTD but they kind of fine tune everyone to their issues that come up on testing. I think it may be that sometimes you need to avoid things.  Maybe not forever, but it may be a piece of the healing puzzle for some of us.

ABNoWay: I couldn't have said it better myself. And since I have your permission to change the thread topic somewhat, my reply for Ribbit follows.

Ribbit: Because you said you already know that she does better on the AB nonnie diet I looked at the Explorer lists instead of the other three AB possibilities. On those lists I found that peanuts and soy are out for them just like for the Nomads. It is my understanding that most of the Explorer group is made up of nonnies. Is there any reason you have eliminated this genotype as a possibility for her?

What other foods does she react to or particularly like or dislike? Believe it or not, I can still remember many of my food preferences from back when I was very very young...mostly from arguing with my parents about stuff I didn't want to eat that they said was good for me. Most of it ended up not being good for me after all as shown by BTD & GTD - not that it was their fault, neither BTD nor GTD existed back then).

I remember reading about an experiment done in Japan with 5 year olds. They put out a buffet of foods and let the kids pick whatever they wanted. All or nearly all of the kids picked foods that were appropriate, for the most part, for their bloodtype. I'm guessing the same would hold true if they tried that again only tested for genotype.

As far as I am personally with the peanuts and soy: I have found that I can tolerate Mori-Nu brand tofu, Yamasa brand soy sauce, and plain edamame (no migraines), but everything else soy is still a very definite no. I can have the peanuts now, but they must be mixed in with other other things (like homemade granola topped yogurt for example).

Like ABNW said, some of us still need SWAMI and in addition to that we are still all unique. In addition to the soy and peanut issue, I still cannot do quinoa in any form. I re-tried that one, too. Instead of better, it has gotten worse.

Speaking of SWAMI, has anyone had any updates as to when it's due to be available online? I had read on the 15th on the NAP site, then I heard the 8th (yesterday). I know these things take time. I'm trying not to be impatient...just looking for more data is all.

There is only one soy milk brand that I can find that is acceptable, and even though it is the most expensive, that is the one that I always look for.

Well the reason I assumed Nomad is because her Daddy is.  And they are similar in build.  She looks like his family somewhat.  She has followed all his food intolerances.  First eggs, then corn, then dairy, then soy and finally all gluten and chicken.  That was just about the same order DH removed those foods, except gluten was the first for him.  Now DH can eat eggs and dairy again.  Peanuts make her vomit (this is fairly new).  There are a few other minor troubles that just give her red eye circles, like maple syrup and honey, which is how I came to conclude she's a nonnie.  I can't figure out how to get good fingerprints out of her, but from what it sounds like many of us have prints different from what is suggested by our genotype.

Most of the time I don't force them to eat something for that very reason.  I do believe that if given a choice (between two good, healthy foods) they'll choose the one that's best suited for them.  Unfortunately DD really, really likes tofu, peanuts and eggs and bemoans them often.  Obviously if they balk at something that is on their diets and they're just griping because they're the ages they are, I'll make them eat a spoon or two and they can't eat anything else except more of the same until the next meal.  Especially if it's a food they usually enjoy.

I also remember all too well being forced to eat things that now are on my toxin list.  Usually foods that to me were bitter or sour.  I learned to eat them, and as an adult I love just about anything that's put in front of me, but I certainly do remember getting spanked because I wouldn't finish my slaw, for instance.  (My mom would put bell peppers in the slaw, which made it very bitter.  I could eat it fine without peppers.)  I'm not going to spank my kids because they don't like a particular food.  Good grief.  There might be a good reason they don't like it.

ABNW: Did you take that 'test' to see if BTD or GTD is better?
It's somewhere on this board.
To lose weight, GTD is more recommended. I also think if cancer or heart trouble are in your family,it's GTD also.

Maybe you are one of the BTDers. I still think it would be good to concentrate on foods that are good for al types you think you are, so you don't get the wrong stuff.
Many of us went thru 'evolutions' of finding our BT secretor status & then GT. I did for each. The nonnie diet was better & the gatherer diet is slowly showing improvement.  
Too bad we have such short summers. The cooler weather sets me back. Maybe this year, it won't do it as much.  

Cheerio,

Mrs T.  I like the cool and yes I did the test.  GTD was the better for me.  I think mainly for my fatigue, but I can't remember the questions.

Chanur, isn't it funny.  I can eat quinoa like it's going out of style but millet doesn't sit well with me.  

Ribbit, I know what you're saying about eating stuff.  But something I have to say.  I did the tasting strips and it turns out I'm a super taster, I guess.  And I love peppers.  In fact, there aren't alot of foods I sorely dislike.  When I was a kid though, I was as picky as they come.  To me, the taste of things just becomes an acquired taste.

I went back and made a grid out of what you've told me so far. Here's what it looked like:
Your daughter            Rating for the four possible genotypes:
gets sick off of:         GT3            GT4           GT5            GT6
    eggs                  super         dot          super          super
    corn                      dot         dot          avoid          avoid
    dairy         many choices   few choices  few choices  many choices
    soy               super            dot         diamond        avoid
  gluten             mixed          mixed       mixed    gluten issues
  chicken             dot            neutral     avoid          dot
maple syrup            dot            super       super         super
    honey          super            super         dot         diamond
    tofu          super            avoid       diamond       avoid
   peanuts           super            avoid       diamond        dot

She seems to be lining up awfully close to the GT4/Explorer. Yes, I do see your point about her GT6/Nomad dad...but if the Nomad diet has already been tried and it doesn't seem to be doing it for her, why not try the GT4/Explorer one just for a little while?

Another thing you could consider trying: even though she's too young to measure perhaps she's old enough that her measurements would give you an indication as to which genotype she is tracking towards. See if it's again more like Nomad or more Explorer or makes the question more complicated by favoring one of the other two.

Sorry about the uneven columns...tried to straighten them out for you...didn't work much as you can see.

Well, this brings up a good point.  I don't fully understand this, but from what I can tell you could be a totally different genotype from your parents, no?  Because it's what happens in the womb, not outside that turns certain genes on and off.  And that's got more to do with what mom is doing, I think.  So even if ribbits husband is a Nomad, that doesn't mean any one of the kids has to be. If I'm understanding that correctly. Yeah, we get the blood types from our parents though.  Am I correct?

Chanur, thanks so much for doing that.  I haven't had the time to put together a chart like that, though that is the way my brain works.  I used to make lists and lists of foods DH ate, trying to figure out what was making him feel so awful.  Turns out, looking back at them, the days he felt the worst was when he had either soy or chicken.  Duh!  He's a B!  But we weren't on the BTD then (it was only a few months later than I went on it).

Can I ask a really dumb question?  I feel terrible even having to ask this.  I'm sure it's been covered and I just missed it.  And I know what it means, by the way it's used, but....here goes....What does SWAMI stand for?  

I haven't actually tried the Nomad diet with her.  She's so sensitive that I haven't wanted to rock the boat.  Maybe I should go ahead and try it anyway.  She's pretty open to trying new foods.  She has a cold right now that she caught from some snotty-nosed kid at a store who wouldn't stop trying to play tag with her even though she (and I) told him to stop.  His mama thought it was cute.  It might have been if he hadn't had a cold.  So we're home from church this morning.  She's watching Pooh, the baby's toddling from one to the other of us trying to find things to chew on (cutting 4 molars at once! Aaaaah!  Does it ever end?!) and I'm enjoying the quiet.  

I don't know about Explorer.  It could be that if she were on the proper GTD, her body would heal, as mine has, and she would be able to eat those foods again.  Eggs was the first biggie for her.  Just a couple of days after she was born she began to scream a high-pitched wail that didn't end, night or day, for 4 months.  I was on the verge of suicide, I lie not.  The only thing that kept me alive was the question of who would care for her if I did myself in.  Can you say Postpartum Depression?  I went to a La Leche League meeting and they suggested she was allergic to something I was eating (and it was going through the breastmilk).  Sure enough, it was eggs.  I stopped eating eggs and she stopped screaming and started sleeping.  Every 6 or 8 months I try eggs with her again and she still hasn't outgrown the allergy.  Corn and soy are worse.  Chicken makes her cry and she says it makes her feel sad.  Can chicken cause depression in some people?  Huh.  

With the combination of foods available on these lists, I'm going to assume that once I figure out what she is, her body will heal on that diet and she'll be able to eat some of those foods again.  I've been feeding her ghee nearly every day for about 6 months (since I started making it) and maybe that'll set her up for being able to tolerate some of these foods again one day.

The only thing that seems to go back and forth is gluten.  She can occasionally have oats.  When they don't bother her for a while I'll give her some spelt or rye or something, but if they start giving her loose stools, I take it all away again and she goes back to rice.  We've repeated this cycle several times.

Ok, I just read the entire section on Explorers in the book and it sounds just like her!  Super sensitive (we eat at Cracker Barrel a lot when we're on the road because we can all find something safe there, but when we walk in she starts rubbing her nose and scratching her cheeks--many restaurants do that to her, but Cracker Barrel is the worst) and tends to have unexplained, sudden complaints.  I'll try the Explorer diet for a couple of weeks.  Thanks, Chanur.

Wow ribbit.  4 months straight of screaming.  How did you figure out eggs?  Did you just fast and start putting foods back in?  Seems like it would've been hard to figure out.

Quoted from Ribbit
Chicken makes her cry and she says it makes her feel sad.  Can chicken cause depression in some people?  Huh.  

I wouldn't discount it...  It is difficult to determine all of the possible "reasons" why she would feel sad...  

I've had some really "different" reactions to some foods.  There are times when I don't think right, but I often can't find a specific cause - although I presume it is now caused by detoxing...  I have found that my moods are smoothed significantly by taking Nitricycle and Catechol.
