I have been eating for my genotype of gatherer for a little over 2 months now. I dont feel good. I felt much better while just eating for my blood type. I am tired all the time. I can not recover from my work outs as quickly, and I feel like I am hormonal.

The time required is as individual as everything else...  I spent 3 or 4 months adjusting to SWAMI...  I have just recently felt like I was getting through the adjustment period and I started following SWAMI at the start of the year...  I'm still cleaning and healing, so have short-term symptoms, but the major, all of the time wipe-out has passed.

I can't build up bulky muscles, no matter how much I lift weights. I can get stronger, but I won't build big, obvious muscles. The fact that you're able to build muscle means that you're "muscular" genetically.

I'd suggest playing around with the leg measurements- see if changing the inputs by half an inch either way changes your genotype and food lists.

Whatever else you do with your SWAMI, I'd suggest cutting out tomatoes for a while and see if you feel any better. Tomatoes may be something SWAMI gave you due to incorrect measurements, or it might simply be a food you can't tolerate right now, no matter what SWAMI says.

Hello...Does anyone have support/comments/experience with this great program with hypothyroid and gluten issues?
I am just getting started with my swami...also not sure about what exact position in the head to take the cranium measurement...ear to ear? back of skull to top of head?
Many of the vegatables on my B+ bennie list are "knock-out-foods" for me with my thyroid issues..and the millet is a real problem..and am suspect of the yeast in vegan bullion cubes..or yeast in anything..also feel the larch products make me sleepy as well..
any support is appreciated.  I am loving this program..love sleeping through the night for three weeks now..love the way lamb make me feel and do not miss chicken one peck!

Very well.  This plan is very anti-inflammation, so it allows the entire body to heal from all types of malady.

There are pictures and descriptions of this measurement on pg. 82 of The Genotype Diet book.  Basic spot descriptions are:
Front - about an inch below the hairline at the "bump" in the front of the forehead.
Back - the bony bump at the base of the skull.
Sides - the points where your head is the widest.  This varies per individual head shape...  
For me, it is very high, near the top of my head, whereas, my DD it is just above the ears...  My head is shaped like an almond, where hers is more hexagonal shaped...

Hope this helps...  Much success with your healing.

So - update!!!!

I removed tomatoes from my diet this week, and also added in some lowfat dairy...Feeling GREAT again! Not tired, but a little wound up! The exact opposite! I have so much energy - I am working running back into my routine, and it is going well.

So, staying with the gatherer diet with a little tweak. Thanks guys!

BTW, I had my body fat measured yesterday and I was down 1.3% from 5 weeks ago. I lost 1 inch in my waist and 1/2 in my arms, and 1 inch around my chest , and NONE around my legs ;( .....I didnt lose any weight...I stayed at 134lbs. So what I did was lose 2 lbs fat, gained 2 lbs muscle.

Just waiting for the fat to come off my legs.....That will hopefully happen in the next 5 weeks. We shall see!

Tomato is a black dot for me.  I have always hated them so I avoid them.  The only time I have a tomato product is pizza & then I pick up the cheese and scrape off the excess.

I’m a big fan of keeping a food diary to see how you feel and your body reacts.

I despise raw tomatoes, but I like tomato-based sauces (esp. chili).  Tomatoes are neutral for me on BTD and SWAMI, probably because I'm a nonnie.  I'm still careful with them, though, because they can cause me joint pain if I go overboard with them.

My B son gets bad behavioral reactions to tomatoes. The past few times I've let him "cheat" and have pizza with sauce or burgers with ketchup, he's had horrible tantrums within the next few hours. It's just not worth it.

I haven't had a secretor test for him, but his reaction to tomatoes alone makes me think he's a secretor. It would be nice to get a lab test and confirm it,  but it's not a high priority in the budget.

Ordered some today from IHerb.com  as follows, never tried it before, but read some reviews:  

Navitas Naturals, Camu Powder, Raw Camu Camu Powder, 3 oz (85 g) Price was $17.58
They say it is bitter, but fine in smoothies. 60 reviews pretty favorable, one person said she loads it into gelatin capsules because she doesn't like the taste, sour, bitter, but what do we expect if it is natural, others say it is great in their smoothies. Also: Other Ingredients: Organic camu camu powder (myciaria dubia)
Allergen Information: Packaged where they have tree nuts.

I also ordered below: and (Free shipping in orders over $20.00)

2 Arrowhead Mills, Organic Quinoa, 14 oz (396 g)
$5.33 each
2 Bob's Red Mill, Organic, Whole Grain Amaranth Flour, 22 oz (623 g)      (for baking)

Important point.
I don't think Peter D'Adamo meant for his work to replace intuition, for instance.
His recommendations exist to be consulted and factored into our lives, not vice-versa.

Well said San-J!

Although SWAMI is a great tool, one must use one's intuition and common sense. If one were to go and see Peter at the clinic, you can be sure that his version of SWAMI for us will be have been tweaked from our version.

It will be a while
- I tried to test Emma when she was 14- or 15 but she was not done with growing and she grew uneven so it was first after 16 I had a more correct picture- however she is just as weird as her mum so she need a swami IF she is going to do the GTD- but regular O diet is fine for her.

So Keep Morgan on a good B diet- to he grows up unless he has problems that are not solved then I would try to GT -test him.

Hmm.. are you all B's finding it hard to build muscle as much as i do? I find my system catabolic, and seems to burn off my muscle to 'heal' myself. I've tried really hard doing interval training and strength/core, but the muscles doesn't seem to be defined.

Hi Ayaka
Welcome
Well not really - but I am also a very strong( and chubby ) Dane.

What works best for me is to avoid doing too much cardio-It make me tired and bored.
When I exercise I prefer- walking/cykling- working hard in my garden etc- as well as a few short high intensive periods where I might run very fast/ride bike very fast etc.
Combine that with some yoga or Tai chi and my body is happiest.

thanks!

yeah that's right CARDIO bores me to death!

i do more strength training than cardio. i have a 3-second attention span. which is great for interval runs shuttle run 50m and walk back and so on.

i'm yoga-ing but it doesn't build 'visible muscles' though it's rather effortless to lift weights.

i couldn't agree more Henriette :p

I think we can't exercise for the 'sake of exercising' but need to incorporate it into our daily routines

I too enjoy exercise with purpose the best. My husband and I are currently building a large stacked stone wall, and I am lifting and carrying a lot of rock! I'm definitely stronger than when I started, and  more toned. But my muscles are not really prominent.

Sometimes I go to the gym to work out (especially if I don't have outdoor projects), but then I like to set my own purpose or goals to keep me motivated.
