Henriette, I wish I was a Nomad too, like my mother, she gets to eat lots of easily available foods!

What do you think Emma might be? I can't believe she is 14, so grown up sounding!

Well first in January the program on genotype website said she was gatherer
- and I was like:
WHAT   - that for sure does not fit her at all

So I decided to measurer her again this summer 6 months later after growing a lot :
and suddenly it said Hunter and I think that sounds MUCH more like her.

I think my sister (B) is a gatherer as well ( she looks so much like you Ellie  
and my mum (0) is either gatherer or more likely Explorer....I havent measured her compleetely - but she is O  rh- , well built and got the same weird fingers like I do  

well I am just  this kind of rare" egg, dairy,cheese, chocolate" eating Explorer from far up  in the North that dr D forgot to mention

I must say I have been confused about my type. When I first read the book I assumed I was a Gatherer but when I signed up at the website I was an Explorer. Explorer diet makes my blood sugar drop very suddenly and I feel ill. Then I found out the site did not calculate the even finger lengths correctly so I was a Gatherer after all. Really didn't feel well with that diet either (I know, I know. Should have tried for longer than 3 weeks). Then I decided to remeasure and came up Nomad. I have measured and remeasured tens of times and still come up Nomad. Guess that makes me a Type Hopper too.


SWAMId  Gatherer then Nomad then Gatherer. Currently 40% Nomad - Again.

I had problems with the Genotype algorithms as well. I was real close on Gatherer and Explorer, but Gatherer felt totally wrong. Strength testing ultimately favored Explorer and the description is much more me.

I really wish I was a nomad but I have been faithfully following the Explorer diet. It is just so challenging because it seems like even at the HFS I am struggling to find compliant options. It seems I need to make everything from scratch and frankly I don't have the time. I want to get a SWAMI done just so I can see if I can introduce more foods back in.

Like it says in my description: Nomad.

Surprising addition to my diet: Beer! I never used to drink it, now I have a couple a week, and I feel better having incorporated it into my diet . . . never thought I would, since I've been pretty much a non-drinker my entire life. Now, I only drink about 6 oz at a time, mind you, so I'm not exactly puttin' it away.

Cheap date, that's me!!

Oh, I'm left-handed too (though I do write, pretty illegibly, with my right hand, courtesy of the Sisters of Mercy in the 1950's parochial school system).

Any info regarding handedness and blood type?

I'm sure there is, but I haven't seen it.

No expert info here.  I'm right-handed as a B.  My uncle is an A and is left-handed.  My husband and father, both As are right-handed.

Being left-handed is more correlated to fetal stress than anything else I know of (I'm a lefty too).

I am not really sensitive- sure I can feel a cup of coffe late at night
but neither green tea, chocolate or black tea bothers me.

In my swami
coffee and black tea = black dot
chocolate and green tea = diamond  
and I treat decaffinated coffe as neutral
