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.

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.

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

Since I am sensitive to caffeine, I generally won't have it in any form after 12pm.  So I am not positive green tea will keep me awake if I have it at night.  If I knew for sure it wouldn't be a problem, I might drink it later in the day or early evening, but I haven't been willing to take a chance.

Yes, that's true, but only when many other factors were taken into account.  Caffeine sensitivity alone is not enough to change a person unless it's appropriate for lots of reasons.

Only to the bathroom if I have it late enough in the evening. Otherwise, green tea does not have the same effect on me like coffee does. Just one cup of coffee can give me a "buzz" and cause tension (clenching of teeth), but nothing like that ever happens with green tea, even after 3 or 4 cups.

hi!  i understand Nomads are good with dairy but as of now, the only dairy in my diet is yogurt, was thinking of adding some cheese into my diet Any recommendations? does dairy make you guys full for a long time?

Also, any of you tried decaffinated tea like apple/fruit tea or peppermint tea? are they alright for our genotype?

Dairy makes me feel full enough, about teas I don't drink any hot teas. I don't like them and they feel funny in my body. I do drink iced tea. Regular southern sweet tea or unsweetened.

I eat a cup of goat yogurt every day, cook with ghee and have some goat or sheep's cheese a couple of times a week.  Dairy is a true comfort food for B's and Nomads.  But it's not a license to overeat it, or the wrong kinds of it.  Depends on if you are doing BTD or GTD, and which genotype you are.  Nomads can handle a little more than Gatherers, usually.

I don't drink any "flavored" teas.  My favorite green tea is Genmaicha (green tea with toasted rice) and the blood type store sells the most delicious one I've tasted.  As far as herbal teas, I drink an occasional peppermint tea if my tummy doesn't feel quite right.  There is a Chinese herbal tea that I drink every day that has siberian ginseng, schizandra, astragalus, lycium, and gynostemma (jiaogulan). . cold in the summer and hot in the winter!

I couldn't understand why I was feeling nauseous yesterday.  Since I've been pretty BTD & GTD compliant I don't tend to get those queasy feelings...then I remembered: The night before a friend was serving pasta with sauce and chicken.  I gave the wheat pasta to my boyfriend, but being hungry with no choice decided the chicken wouldn't be too bad. I haven't had chicken since I learned it was a BTD toxin and a GTD dot.  Then to top it off, later they offered peanuts! Why oh why didn't I just skip it.  Dr. D. is such a smart man

Be careful when buying all these wonderful food-based vitamin C products.  Acerola powder tends to be cut with Maltodextrin.  And Camu-camu tends to be combined with Tapioca starch.  Evidently this is because these powders tend to clump into hard rocks and the starches keep it from doing that. We all just have to weigh the benefits against the possible avoids.

"Camu-Camu Mega-C™

Wild harvested from small lakes in the center of the Amazon jungle. The grape-sized red and purple berries are juiced directly after harvest and then freeze dried onto a tapioca root starch base-an ideal semi-sweet carrier for blending into juices and for use as a supplement in fresh fruit smoothies and candies. The pink powders add a fruity and semi-sweet acid flavor to most types of food and drink. Until recently, Japan bought most of the entire world harvest making Camu-Camu Mega-C™ a rare commodity even in the Amazon jungle. Today, tribes are beginning to care-take wild plantations and increase production by maintaining local trees. Planting orchards with grafted trees has become more widespread. This wild jungle berry contains the highest recorded source of vitamin C on the planet! About 20x more vitamin C than oranges or lemons. Much higher than acerola fruit. The fruit also contains natural rutin and bioflavanoids, which increase the effect of vitamin C and provide prime bioavailability. Compared with an orange, Camu-Camu Mega-C™ contains ten times more trace elements, such as iron, two times more phosphorus, proteins, beta carotene, calcium, vitamin B1, B2 and B3 as well as a comprehensive complex of minerals and amino acids. Tasty whole powers are perfect for smoothies and juices. This species occurs abundantly in wild swamps along rivers and lakes in Peru, and in Amazonian Brazil and Venezuela, often with the base of the trunk under water. During the rainy season, the lower branches are also submerged for long periods."

However, one of the sites that Lola provided seems to sell a camu powder that has no fillers.  This is from the Live Superfoods site:

"Our raw camu camu powder is drum-dried at a low temperature (under 110 degrees) and contains no additives or carriers."

speaking of swami, caffein and gather/explorer/nomad controversy......

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.

I entered in to my swami that I am sensitive to caffein. However, I noticed that I am not sensitive to all caffein. For instance the yerba mate tea, does not affect me like coffee would. Green tea does affect me a little.

Asa gatherer my dairy is VERY limited. As is the fruit. On the BT diet, I ate a lot of dairy and a lot of fruit. I almost want to switch back over because with the way i feel, I feel like something is wrong. i should not be so tired all the time and should be thinking more clearly...I cant seem to remember things. sigh. I fell like I need to start all over.

I disagree with RAWO+. I think two months is long enough that you should start feeling better, if you're actually eating for the correct genotype.

What diet are you following at the moment? Do you have a SWAMI or are you following the Gatherer diet out of the book? If you have SWAMI, how long have you been following it? Are you sure you entered all of your information correctly?

I am following the Swami software. I am pretty sure I am following it correctly. I followed BT dieet for almost two years, and just recently caved in and got the software for SWAMI. I would have thought i was an explorer or even a nomad, but it came up with gatherer. I cut out a lot of the dairy I had been eating because swami suggested only a few dairy items and less often. Also, tomatoes were added back in to my diet. I was happy about that, but now I question that they may be part of the reason I feel so yucky and tired!

Another change I made was I started drinking yerba mate tea rather than green tea. On the swami it listed yerba mate as highly beneficial for me - I think the green tea was better at helping burn stored body fat. Although, I LOVE the taste of the yerba mate. It's been nice.

Out of all the information that I entered into my SWAMI, the one thing I question was how it calculated me as the endomorphic body type. My upper torso IS longer than my legs a lot! I have a VERY long torso, but on the measurement of my legs, my upper leg length i measured to be only a fraction of an inch longer than my lower. Maybe I am measuring that wrong...This is the only thing I question. Everything else, I am pretty sure I am correct on. I did enter that I am pretty muscular. I put this in there because I have been lifting weights for over two years and have built quite a bit... However, I was not always this way. Would that matter?

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.

Quoted from 14545
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?

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.

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)

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.

I work a lot in my huge garden
- I am keeping 2 families + friends more or less self sufficient with veggies and fruit aprox 9-10 months a year.
Right now I am busy preparing and planting
1) a Indian bed with beans, qinter squash, zuchinni and gherkins and corn( mainly to my non BTD)
2)And a mixed cabbage, broccoli, Kale and leek bed.

Every year when I start in April I can feel I build a lot of muscle- also preparing fire wood  is exercise with a purpose

I relate, fellow B's!  When my exercise and my lifestyle merge and flow together, I'm a happy girl!  I've heated my home with a wood stove for decades, both because I love the quality of heat, but also I love the physical engagement with the process . . stacking, carrying, splitting, building and cultivating the fire. A gypsy-like thing to do.  I'm not much of a gardener, or that would also suit me.  

I get very bored with traditional exercises.  If I can walk to the store, I'm happier than just walking circles around town.  My mini-trampoline is in the livingroom so that I can bounce on it off and on throughout my day, but I'd go crazy if I had to drive to a gym and 'work out' for an hour.  



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Ayaka--I am thinking that perhaps GT may have more influence on musculature than BT.  That said:  the B in me cannot tolerate exercise without purpose, although lately I have been successful at walking the hills in my neighborhood on a regular basis.  I have never had muscle definition to speak of.  That may also be the Teacher in me.

My B nonnie son (Explorer) works like crazy to keep his muscle definition.  As a child when most of the other boys his age seemed to start developing muscle for no apparent reason, he remained thin and only developed muscle definition  when he started doing weight training.

yea susan, that's what it seems to be. I need to 'really flex it' to show only abit of scrawny muscle! Misery at best. But otherwise i choose to think we're more 'taut' or 'compact' and this will benefit us in our later years where muscle degeneration comes to play and you have 'wasted old muscle pockets' hanging loose.. Any explorers with me on aging well? Lol

p/s: b's get real bored easily doing mundane routine stuff. I won't be surprise many of the b's belong to a creative field as well.

I’m not creative, but my son is.  He’s the one into music & writing.  I do get bored very easy.  So I travel a lot for my job.  I bounce the walls if I’m stuck at my desk for 2 weeks.

Maybe more accurately-  "repetitive, unchallenging stuff".

My B side compels me to engage in creative activity, while my A side demands that it be efficient, precise and useful. There is a strong conflict there that took me awhile to figure out. For example, music satisfies this, where decorative arts do not. And once I've immersed myself and learned something to my satisfaction, it's time to move on. I guess kind of an A+B thing.
