I haven't seen any polls like this, so I thought I'd write one  .  Go ahead and vote for all the women in your household whose genotype you know.

Either way I've measured it I am a gatherer. At first the index finger were longer now the index on one hand and the ring on the other is longer-still a gatherer. The only problem is I am catching every stinking 'bug' that is going around. Got sick on my drive back east to Fort Bragg, NC. Then got to feeling better then on the last day heading home I got sick again and it is sticking to me real hard. I am trying to minimize any neutrals and the avoids are gone anyway. What else can I do?

I second that.  The good thing I got out of thinking I was a Nomad was that I went gluten-free for several months, and it healed up my gut.  Or at least, my sensitivity to eggs went away, and I think that's a sign of gut healing.

All of my measurements are so so close but with my migraine and anemia issues, it just has to be explorer. My body shape fits it too. The Geno-Calculator (using my measurements) also confirms explorer.

Like RedLilac, I am also waiting for the swami tweek. I already took out the mozzarella and added back some beef. Just had too because I feel better that way. Gotta figure out why my joint pain came back on the gtd and won't go away. It hurts!

slyparrot, I had joint pain issues when first trying the GTD, and all year have had homelife issues that kept me from focusing more on diet the way I had when I started BTD. Unsure of the cause, I leaned back more toward BTD. Whatever I go with, I'll never leave these systems, BTD saved my bee-hind in a big way. I notice you and I have alot in common, tho I don't know what kind of taster I am yet. We probably have alot of similar food responses.
Joint pain theory - nightshade vegetables, increased dairy.
I am now in a position to focus more on my diet and responses to changes.

Can anyone tell me why, when you measure fingers, they are measured on different sides? For a couple of days there after I remeasured my fingers (wrongly...) I had convinced myself I was an explorer???! I think if there was a 'type' in between them both, that's where I would be, as I relate so strongly to issues both types have...

However I think I am happy being a gatherer... Really find it very hard to sweat anyway. And rice and lentils are NO substitute for chocolate and cashews (even if the latter are still only black dot status)
But....there was popcorn to have occasionally I loooove popcorn) Still, think I'd rather have choc though and I'll satisfy myself with pumpkin seed 'faux popcorn...'

Here's another one - How come I can strength test for 3 different genotypes, even including Nomad    (which comes out at least 5 points higher than Gatherer) And yet there "are no combination types" p104 Genotype Diet...??
Isn't swami kinda combination typing???? I'm confused!!  

Also what happened to A+an's comment to this thread "19 minutes ago"??? Is it just that they take a while to appear???

And...when I posted yesterday, how come the thread stayed down where it was???

Possum 2: I 'strength test' for Nomad high & I think for Explorer, but am a Gatherer.  The main thing is the 3 measurements & the BT components(type, rh factor, & secretor status[sometimes]).
The strength tests are to confirm or to get a general idea.
We are Os so can't be Nomads, but we have certain things in common with them!
I know it can be confusing at first, but stay with us!!!!

I prefer to think SWAMI identifies an individualized type. A computer program generates a personal diet profile based on many factors. The type/diet selected is one of millions of possible types (not just the six listed in the book).

Not only are blood type and genotype considered, but also a number of items related to your family's health history are considered in determining a personal diet plan.

It may be a matter of semantics but I prefer to think of it that way rather than SWAMI deciding that I am 43% Teacher and 57% explorer.

Thanks Mrs T 0+ & C_sharp That's what I thought, but thanks for the responses... At least I know now I'm not the only 0 who test strong for Nomad - I thought I was going mad there, esp when it was stronger than the 0 types??!!
Don't worry Mrs T; I'm...not...going...any...where... This is like way too much fun and helpful!!!

Anyone got any thoughts re other couple questions ???? pls see 2-3 posts back

My only advice, Possum, is to choose the one you're closest to, and follow it very strictly for a month or more.  Then switch to a different one and follow it for a while.  The more strict you are with it the better you'll be able to tell if it was right or not if you change diets.  It might be very subtle.  When I changed to the Teacher diet for two weeks, the only real changed I could put my finger on was the weight I gained.  I didn't feel any different, although at the time I remember thinking my back didn't hurt as much.  But I'm a Warrior for sure; thanks to my SWAMI results I now know.

all the details will be given to you once the three months have been achieved.

a detailed questionnaire needs to be filled in, the info submitted and the swami report will then be sent to you.....
if you need specific info, call NAP, they will know more.

Lola-

You also mentioned that we could get a practitioner to do the swami. Right? I asked my ND, the one that had me start the GenoType diet and she said she has never heard of it. What does it take for a ND to be able to preform the SWAMI tests? If my ND can't do it how can I find someone local that can? Is there some sort of practitioner search engine?

Thanks,

your ND if interested might want to attend the next certification in
Norwalk!

check the practitioner registry for other certified IFHI practitioners familiar with Dr D s swami program.

No, Cozzete, you don't have to be a N.D. to be certified, but being certified doesn't make you an N.D. either.

It's great if you find an N.D. who is also certified at the Master's level by Dr. D.  That would be a wonderful practitioner to work with!

Yes we have quite a few here.
Are you new to the Genotype diet?

May want to start your own thread looking for Gatherers rather then tag it here, no one will know you are looking for them.

I'm a Teacher who thought I was an Explorer for more than a year! I became more compliant recently and realized I wasn't feeling that great--especially in my digestion. I decided to remeasure and discovered I didn't originally measure the seated height properly. I am SO glad I did that!

Now that I'm on the teacher diet, I have found that my watch is fitting much nicer than it had. I was so annoyed that it had gotten tighter in the last year. My digestion, which was really worsening, is getting much better. Thank goodness. I had followed the A diet (secretor) a while back but felt I needed more protein, so I would try different, higher protein things. I am so glad to be back on track. This reemphasizes how certain aspects of the A diet have been important to me. In the last 2.5 years, I strayed the most from the A diet and also consumed more teacher avoids than ever. That is when my digestion got really messed up!

A's and digestion. I know that mine can be a problem. even after all this time.

I ate Spelt Crepes made with almond milk (from Cook Right) I made myself with a tablespoon of almond milk mixed with hot water, I shook it up in the jar, added it to the crepes, I ate a tiny piece of the crepe, a torn off piece that the kids didn't eat. I had gas pain so severe I could barely stand for 12 hours.  The kids  ( 20 and 16) had no problem with the crepes, but my poor A Warrior body was a mess.

I have been avoiding all gluten for close to 4 years, I think. I discovered by chance I have celiac disease, although I never even knew I had digestive problems at the time. My main symptom was problems with my nerves. Then I developed diverticulitis a couple of years later--while on a somewhat low carb diet where I ate a lot of veggies that were teacher avoids and also ate too much meat. Finding the teacher diet will hopefully eliminate the difficulties with my digestion that seemed to start back then. It already appears to be working. So I'm feeling some genoharmony right now! It sort of weird to think that something finally might be right for me, diet-wise.

Daughter 14 years : O rh- , sec
- keeps switching between Hunter and Gatherer
- In January G, In June Hunter- and now back to G
- She hasnt finished growing so well wait she does well on O sec diet - and she fits the picture of Hunter better than G


well I am back to swami explorer
- and well the diet fits well now that we got rid of all the bad stuff in regular explorer diet  

I havent measured Emma again
- but I am quite sure she is more Hunter than Gatherer and more Explorer than Gatherer. She simply doesbt fit the gatherer profile at all
So my guess is that she has to wait to get swamied later

I am about 95% sure I am a hunter. I am waiting on my secretor tests results. I want them now! Even then, there is a slim chance that I could be an explorer but I still have to know, I want to be 100% sure.

Most of my measurements and AB group make me a nomad (don't know secretor status), but I have whorls on 8 fingertips, and ecto/meso physique and a small waist. And no way do I have the right personality for a nomad. Maybe I need to test again.

Hi Kje.

Are your index prints loops?  If so, when you hold both palms up is the delta on those loops on the same side?

You could be an Explorer, and apart from the fingerprints and the strength test in the Genotype Book you best bet is the secretor status which you havn't taken.

My AB husband has the classic personality characteristics, but my AB aunt doesn't seem to. (I'm figuring she is an explorer GTD which would be a very rare bird-I mean the combination of those 2 things.)She has the dietary interests of an explorer more or less.

What do you mean by "she has the dietary interests of an explorer more or less"?  I find the personality aspects of Genotypes quite interesting.  I'm a warrior and our motto is "Time Flies When You're Having Fun." This motto describes me perfectly.  I never have enough time in the day.

The http://www.genotypedient.com
was originally a subscription site. The full GenoType lists (including neutrals that are not listed in the book) were available on the site, but you had to pay a weekly fee to access it.
lists were removed at the same time as the site was given public access without the payment of a subscription fee.

The types of fingerprints that you have make a difference in your Genotype?  I guess you learn something new everyday, lol

I have 8 loops and 2 whorls, where can I find out what it means?

I'm a hunter and, o boy, I fit the personality exactly     Hubby even agrees.  Also, I think that the only thing different in the physical part of it is that I do not have a squarish jaw... it's almond shaped.

Other than that, I am 6 feet tall with long limbs, narrow boned

yes in fact, all the foods on typebase not appearing on your lists can be considered neutrals.

those new additions on your book, for other GTs, not on your list, as well.

if that answer is not in your book, for any of the GTs, try a search on the main page

have you read the monographs for each GT up at the store

I just added my Nomad self to your databank.

I have a question: I remember reading Dr. D'Adamo's saying that each individual is only one of the six genotypes. I understand that some of you would like to enter two or more types to represent those who aren't in the forum (and that isn't the purpose of the poll, is it?) But I also see some of you saying you're of mixed genotype. What'd I miss? (This is the moment when Lola usually comes up with the telltale link...)

When I first voted, I said Teacher. Now I'm an Explorer and feeling really great about it seeing SWAMI has created an Explorer diet that is just for me. I'm either 38% or 41% depending on whether I say I'm a shoveler. I could be at the slight end of shoveling. Too bad I don't have the cast they took when I got braces!

Explorers, non-secretor, Lewis double-negatives are more likely to have unusual issues.

When Dr. D' Adamo put an individual, systematic approach to health out there these kinds of people hoped, questioned, tested and demanded more of him.  He has risen to the occasion and developed deeper understandings and gone in different directions than those he originally intended.

The Genotypes of board members are slanted towards Explorer because Hunters Gatherers, Teachers, Warriors and Nomads who don't have serious issues will eat as Os, As, Bs, and ABs and be content with that.  We Explorers and non-secretors who are not Explorers, and others who don't neatly fit into the broader categories have to be more demanding because our bodies are.

I know how that indecision can push you off balance, Isa.  Happy that you have your balance back.  Now that you are past the theshold of fear, more learning, connecting, synthesies!

Hi.....just voted and new to this site. I am a Gatherer. Here's the kicker.....I went for 10 years following a Type A+ diet because of a high school teacher's blood test results with our class a very long time ago. Never had it tested medically, just followed the diet recommended for A's and recently my joints have become stiff and I have bursitis in my right shoulder, so I ordered a geno-type kit and blood test kit and
Wall-AH! I am an O+ Gatherer! I am excited about eating Buffalo and Lamb. I threw away the leftover peanut butter, replaced it with Almond butter, bought some low-fat cottage cheese, and got rid of the lentils, brown rice and potatoes! I am looking forward to healing with this high-protein diet, losing weight and feeling like I did at 40!

voted as gt2 gatherer, i'll get the taster test and secretor test soon. I kept jumping from gatherer to explorer during genotype testing but seemed more gatherer than other. Someone said popcorn, don't like corn much, but you should try the gluten free rice chex that's out now. I just fill a bowl full and eat away.

I know I am BT A and Rh +. I am Ao because my Mom is A+ and my Dad is O-.
According to the Genotype book I fall mostly under teacher due to measurements, longer torso and meso-ecto, however, I am gynic, almond jaw, and longer ring fingers with 8 loop and 2 arch fingerprints.
I just wonder if my Dads blood has any effect.We seem to tolerate more foods in common than my Mom and I.

This makes sense, it looks like the women here are mostly like the women in the real world. Many women have shorter legs, and it looks like 58% of you are a part of the three short legged genotypes.

Genotype 2 includes two bloodtypes - O and B. O is 43% of the US population, so there should be alot of GT2s. B's are 9%, so they just serve to boost the GT2 further.

Genotype 4 includes all bloodtypes, so they should have quite a number of women.

Genotype 3 has only one bloodtype, A, which is 38% of the US population. But GT4 steals some of the type A's...

So far I'm Swami Expressed as an Explorer and I redid my finger prints many times and my index finger measurements.  Being a B non-secretor and RH-  and my index fingers are shorter than my ring fingers and their fingerprints don't match really put me in the Explorer category.  However I do have a lot of Nomad traits being a B.  My diet is a mix of both I see. Seeing the Nomad printout in the beginning is not too different than the Explorer printout in the end except for some few minor changes.

Family and personal history does make a difference too!  Glad SWAMI can work it all out and make it easier for all of us.

GTD - Nomad
Ee Dan

I am a short Nomad. 5'3" and my "normal weight" is 100 lbs. I gained almost 20 lbs thanks to a whole bunch of steroid medicines from the doctor for allergies and stuff. YUCK.

I am an ectomorph but I gain muscle quite quickly when I start working out. I have some asymmetries as Dr. D. notes... shorter Nomads are lankier, have smaller frames, and have asymmetries.

My legs and torso (approximate lengths since I measured myself without help) are either equal or legs may be slightly longer. I was a size 0 long at my height.

The funny thing is, I am told most "shorter" Asians have shorter legs compared to their bodies. I was considered being exotic as a result of seemingly longer legs. Both my parents share the same figure, though (Dad is O and Hunter without a question.. I would say STRONG without even measuring him. Mom is AB and I need to measure her but she has the same frame but medium frame).

The whole leg length issue makes me wonder if Asian Bs tend to be more explorers. Asians seem to have larger head sizes, making their faces seem bigger, too. If there are other Asians here, I am quite curious about your responses to my comments.

Sidebar: Dr. D. says in general, Nomads tend to be taller in height with red hair and green eyes. In my funkier days, I would dye my hair bright red or purple and wear green contacts... My past life regression shows me as a typical Irish "redhead" living in Ireland, making paper. I am wondering if I was being drawn to my Nomadic tendencies in my past life, as well.


Simplifying my life. Only the best for my body, mind, and soul!

okay, now I am confused on the correct way to measure the index and ring fingers.  If I measure using the "palm method"  I change back to a teacher.  Please tell me the correct way to measure.

Palm up is recommended because you can see the crease between the finger and the hand.  You measure finger tip to crease on the side of the finger next to the middle finger.

So, I am a hunter. Longer ring fingers with symmetrical lengths on fingers. I think I am more "square" in all my body parts than I thought.

I wonder if my German/French ancestry has anything to do with it.

I'm a gatherer according to swami and a nomad according to the advanced calculator.
My ring fingers are also longer than my index fingers and my fingers are all the same length on both hands. My shoulders, chest and hip measurement are all within 1inch of each other, with a defined waist and I'm German (born, raised and citizen of)

I really enjoy learning about the genotypes, body composition and the heritage behind our looks..

When I get stressed about eating tooo much protein, I always think of my father who passed away of cirrhossis of the liver ((we owned a bar for 20 years in NY).... he was an O and def a hunter I think- anyhow, he always said "YOU NEED MEAT" and You will feel better;)

I think we need to listen to our bodies. That is one of the best things the BTD/GTD/Swami way of life has taught me.

totally agree with cajun about listening to our bodies.

when i first did all of my measurements, i came up as a nomad - I was using the intermediate calculator and there was no other option with my combination of body, limbs, fingers, etc.

After 4 weeks of following the nomad diet... i felt like c**p, i had gained 5 pounds, felt dumber than a sack of hammers, was completely depressed and completely lost all interest in sex.  

At which point i went back, redid EVERYTHING, and it still said nomad. But it felt wrong! So I decided... for the fun of it... to peruse the advanced calculator pages... it turns out that for my particular combination, because i am female, there is a small possibility to be an explorer. If i was a non-secretor.

Well... I sent off for my kit, and in the meantime i started to follow the explorer diet combined with some elements from the B diet... lost the 3 of the 5 lbs i had gained and am feeling much much better... and today, i got my secretor status report ... and guess what?

yup, i'm a nonnie. Everything makes soooo much sense now.

New-ish here, but not to the way of life.

I am a Hunter....thought I was a Gatherer when I did the test in the book, then I thought I was an Explorer after I bought the kit (could finally tell which fingers were longer!), but when I put it all in Swami I became a Hunter!

That's great, zenphoenix!  It's so important to know your secretor status.  The Genotype book calculator had me as Gatherer, but Swami has me as Explorer.  I feel like both.  Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I don't.  And for anyone who wonders what that is supposed to mean (if you've gotten this far), that was an old TV jingle for Mounds and Almond Joy, which I will NOT think about even if Halloween is coming.

I thought I was Hunter or Explorer, given the descriptions & was eating like a Hunter, which felt horrible!!!! I gained 3 lbs., felt like I couldn't digest the beef I was eating & just didn't feel "good".  Apparently I'm a Gatherer according to my measurements and after 2 - 3 weeks eating this way, I've lost those 3 lbs. gained, plus 2!!!     Overall, I'm feeling better.  I know I have a long way to go & a lot of healing to do, but I'm confident I'll get there eventually!  

Thanks, O in V, now I have the Almond Joy jingle in my head!  lol!

Boy am I late on this reply - Yes. Mine are...slightly, by one mm. And they are loaded with white lines (well, they ALL are.) Such a Nomad. I also have arch patterns on all fingers and ulnar loops on the thumbs. The ring finger on my right hand looks like it may have an ulnar loop, but probably not.

I am an Explorer....not liking the food choices   so I mainly stick to the BTD for now. I am thinking about getting SWAMI so I can take it to the next level.  I also need to find out what my secretor status is soon.

wooow explorers are no one ... at top of topics ...is it coz of our troubles we might have with normal diets while not following BTD/GTD Or
is it coz of our stubborn individuality and not being able to do what others think we've to do

I am a Hunter and have been eating only beneficials for three weeks now.  I have lost 8 pounds and have trimmed my waist and stomach area without any exercise.  I am going to start the exercise program this week and see what happens.  I go to the fitness club and walk the treadmill at an incline for three minutes, run one minute for an hour then do weight machines for upper and lower body every other day.  I weigh 127 (5'8") now (I dropped a whole dress size to a 4), which is my high school weight and same weight for most of my life.  At 64 I feel and look like 45 (people often think that is my age). Not vain or trying to brag, just know that "you are what you eat" is so true.   A lifetime of good nutrition, no processed foods and fresh and organic everything, helps. I truly have eaten Hunter most of my life even though I had no knowledge of ERFBT until last 3 years or so.  Oh, I cut out the one glass of red wine since going on Hunter diet and I think that is why the stomach is slimming down.

I sent for the genotype test. I do not know secretor or RH factor. On the basic calculator I had 1 3 4 6. On the strength testing, Hunter got 16 points. The next highest score was 8 for Explorer.

Warrior here.  My mom is a warrior as well.  My sister hasn't done the measurements but she probably is one too.  Brother is one for sure (though he doesn't count). All of my immediate family are Type As as well.

I have heard of SWAMI but it isn't in the budget yet - so maybe you guys and gals can help me narrow my GT down?

My upper legs are 17 1/2 in., lower legs 15 in., Trunk 34 in., my Left Finger Prints: (Thumb - Radial Loop, Index - Plain Arch, Mid. - Tented Arch, Ring- Radial Loop, Pinky - Tented Arch); my Right Finger Prints: (All Fingers - Radial Loop) (So the Lft. vs. Rt. Index Finger being different with one radial loop pattern is also an Explorer thing right?)

I had thrush off and on (a yeast infection) while nursing my first baby, I've always had irregular periods but when I get them they are heavy, I seem to always have a dip in energy around 1-3 p.m., I've had migraines in the past, I'm very sensitive to medications.

So any Explorers out there can you confirm if I've got the type right?  What is the main thing to know about being an Explorer (that might contradict the Type A BTD...)

Thanks in advance!

We don't have enough / the correct information to use the tables in the book to determine Genotype.
The measurements we need are:
Standing height
Torso - I assume this is the Trunk measurement provided.
Upper leg and lower leg are provided.
Length of index and ring fingers on both hands (or at least which is longer for each hand).
Blood Type and Rhesus factor - both provided.
Secretor status - may be necessary or not - depends on where in the table the other measurements place you.

Thanks for your reply.

I don't have the measurement anymore but we did measure them and my pointer finger is longer on both hands.
I haven't paid for the secretor status test - hopefully I can learn my GT without it....

Since height is 67" and trunk is 34, legs are 33 - torso longer than legs.
Upper leg longer than lower leg.
Index fingers longer on both hands.

Interesting.  I thought for sure I fit the Explorer profile because the upper legs are longer and because of the fingerprints where for the Teacher the upper and lower legs are equal and they often have a significant number of whorl type fingerprints which I do not.  Teachers also have index and ring finger ratios that are usually asymmetrical as per left and right sides.  Did the book info. become outdated?  The stuff I'm quoting here is from the 4 your type website....

Harmony,
I am also a teacher but have many explorer qualities...such as the index fingerprints are opposite and I do not have any whorls! My legs are the same as yours...my torso is longer than my total leg length and my thighs are longer than my lower legs. I believe this is normal for both teachers and explorers...only A's with longer legs than body are the warriors.
I strongly recommend Swami as soon as you can swing it.

When I did my measurements a week ago - I was warrior no question.  

Is it usual to have fingers on both hands same measurements -index and ring I mean and same patterns - arch? my hands seem to be perfect copies.

I see a comment about legs being longer than torso which is true but when I look in the mirror I dont see that which I do with other family members so measurements need to be accurate.

Also my own observation of half a dozen A type friends - we all have the same style of feet - gradual decrease in height from big toe to little toe on both feet - you could almost draw a straight line. Friends with o type seem to have different toe sizes - some the toe next to the big got very long etc and not the gradual change in height that As seem to have. Does anyone else see this?

Del,
Interesting observation about the toes.
My toes are exactly how you describe the other "A" toes.
My DH is an O hunter and his second toes on each foot are longer than the big toe.
Now I will be looking at my O and A family members and friends to see if this is consistent.

Welcome Maybe!

If you're having trouble identifying your genotype, another option is to follow the Type A diet from Live Right 4 Your Type.

You can't guess secretor status from the measurements in the genotype book. I mean, sure, you can guess, but it's not an accurate way to figure it out.

All of the "book diets" are wonderful diets, but every human being is unique and some of us don't fit too well into any one category. I personally did poorly on the Gatherer diet, and I would have reverted to the Blood Type Diet for Os if SWAMI hadn't been available. The diet I have now is personalized just for me and works better (and is easier to follow/feels less restrictive) than any of the diets from the books.

But SWAMI is an investment and if you're not in a position to spend the money right now, rest assured that the diets in the books are still wonderful- it just might take some time to figure out which one is the best fit for you.

If you have your measurements and blood type, it's generally considered more accurate to use the advanced calculator at the back of the book. You can pretty much ignore the strength testing that goes along with the basic and intermediate calculators.

However, SWAMI does use those strength testing things and often comes up with a different "genotype label" than people measure for in the book. But with SWAMI, the label isn't important because all the foods are individually evaluated against your specific needs, and the list may vary widely from any of the books.

If you measure for one genotype in the advanced calculator, but the genotype description "just doesn't make sense" and you strength test much more strongly for a different genotype (one that's possible with your blood type) then you may not do as well on "by the book" Genotype diets. Such individuals really benefit from a SWAMI. If that's not a current option, then you may do better on the Genotype that you strength test/intuitively feel is a better fit rather than the one you measured for. Or you can use the blood type diet instead of either genotype diet.

My advice is to double-check all the measurements, then follow the genotype that you measure for. If it's not working for you after 4-6 weeks, re-evaluate at that time. Alternatively, double-check the measurements, and if you don't feel confident with any of the genotype results, go with the Blood Type Diet.

Thank you, Ruth.

I'm still in the procedure of reading the geno type diet but having done thesemi-advanced test and having read the introductioin before the individual diets, it seems like the explorer is a good fit compared to the other genotypes...even though I have no idea where I should get most of the reccommended meat and fish...and most of it seems bit too expensive for an everyday food as well.

I haven't looked much into blood type diet. But I understand that it's pretty much vegetarian for type a. ? And that's out of the question for me.

Don't know much about the SWAMI test thingy. But I'll have a look around.

The A diet does not need to be vegetarian. It CAN be, but it doesn't have to be. A's get plenty of poultry, eggs, and fish- it's only red meat that you need to limit or avoid. You'd also want to include plenty of beans in your diet,and have some vegetarian meals (something I could never feel satisfied on) but there's no need to be completely vegetarian.

Don't worry about the food list seeming exotic or expensive. There are many foods in my own SWAMI that I've never tried, and some fruits that I've had a small serving of once or twice, usually for holidays. I base my meals on the foods that are readily available within my budget. For my family of Os and Bs, that means a lot of turkey and beef- lamb is better for all of us but I can only afford it a few times a year.

Welcome, Maybe!
I noticed that you are A-. One of my friends is also A- and she naturally needs more "meat" (usually lamb) than I do...even though my body has to have turkey and fish. I would not be satisfied or feel healthy as a strict vegetarian, but I do not need to eat fish or turkey daily....about 5 days out of 7. Red meat is plain toxic for me in many ways, especially digestion.
Ruthie gave you great advice.

Interesting about your a- friend...well I tried eating meat only every other day a few years ago. But I felt a lot better with the low carb, high animal protein and fat diet I stared after that.  
Actually I always score "protein type" and don't feel satisfied after low-fat meat. So type a diet lists were quite a turn-off   and I wished I were an o.

I haven't seen any polls like this, so I thought I'd write one  .  Go ahead and vote for all the women in your household whose genotype you know.

Does anyone remember if there was some hypothesis or angle driving the survey?

I only voted for myself (Teacher, A+) but I do have a daughter.  That being said, she's only 8 months old and since she was born at home we do not know what her blood type is.  We don't even know my husband's yet because we keep forgetting to ask the hospital!

All things considered I'm almost certain he fits the A+ Warrior status and since she takes so much after him in build (so far) I'm thinking she might also be an A+ Warrior.  We'll have to wait and see.

Also, on the toe and leg thing:

My torso is longer than my legs and even though my toes do decrease in size, they are at a rather sharp angle, especially the last three on both feet.

So I think that might have more to do with genotype/ancestry than blood type.

An easy way to determine blood type is using an eldon card. Kit is available here:

For infants, the four drops of blood needed for the test are often gotten from a heel prick.

When Genotype book came out I measured exactly 50% Nomad and 50% Exprorer. Very frustrating, and so I strayed off of the B diet for a time. A couple of years ago I discovered that Swamie was available for individuals, ordered the kit for measuring using the new guidelines and found I also have Teacher characteristics. Swami has made a huge difference! Since my Swami I've had a string of medical issues including open heart surgery and ruptured appendix. I'm firmly on the diet now and exercising lots. Finally down 10 pounds with more to loose. I'm currently reading old threads and putting together my supplement plan - and will start eating more diamond foods, like beets, that I really don't like. The more I read these threads the more aware I become of the multiple layers of wisdom that Swami provides. Who knows, once I can see my fingerprints clearly I may end up an Explorer. Meanwhile My goal is to get every benefit I can from my Nomad diet. A huge thank you to Dr D and to all of you who post to these forums. It is great to be back and posting again.
