I actually couldn't answer my own poll as I don't know my secretor status yet. I think I'm going to finally take the test in the next few months. But I've been curious about my fellow Explorers. I've been wondering how many B Explorers there are compared to the other types.

If you don't know your secretor status, please just guess so I can at least see the different blood types.

Thanks!

I'm assuming Elizabeth's secretor status (AB nonnie) as well as her genotype, but she improved so dramatically on both diets that I think I can safely say I'm right.

Once I get a few more secretor tests done, I think I'll find a bunch more explorers in my family.  I'm anxiously awaiting my A+ son's test.  He seems to be a teacher, but he's celiac and allergic to milk and eggs which is a bit too reactive for teacher methinks.  If he's a nonnie then maybe he could be an explorer.  My O- son seems to have a radial loop on one index finger.  Only problem is that they both seem to have the right D2 : D4s for their gender, is that something that changes as they grow?

I also need to get the test done on my mom - by the measurements, if she's a non-secretor then she's an explorer, and she is one who would love the explorer diet, other than the chicken egg avoidance.  She loves many explorer superfoods, and taught me to enjoy them at a young age.

My sister and neice, both Os, also have longer D4s and seem quite explorer-like.  Actually my sister's whole family seems explorer-like.  My neice has been quite sick lately, and my sister's fibromyalgia has mostly resolved with a GF diet, but she still gets headaches, so they're game for finding out.  My type B celiac brother has a lot of explorer traits as well, in fact all of us who are gluten free seem like explorers.  

Is it something that really runs in families, despite blood types?

My oldest son is a secretor afterall, so no explorer there.  Onward and forward, as a dairy free teacher.

My youngest is still an explorer in my book, and had his first obvious reaction to milk today.

My husband is still unconvinced of anything when it comes to limiting their diets.  He understands allergies, but aside from that he wants to stuff them with anything they'll eat that won't require immediate medical intervention or cause hours of pain.  That's the kind of thinking that lands celiac kids in hospitals before they finally get an "adequate" diagnosis.  What's so bad about changing their diets that it takes something life-threatening to bring it about?

Ok, it's been a hard day...signing off before I rant into oblivion.

I dont think their cow milk allergy has anything to do with being an Explorer, but rather A & O which had milk as an avoid on the BTD.  Dr D took milk away from everybody on the GTD, but on the BTD it was beneficial for Bs.  Im a B Explorer and milk moved up to a dot when I had my Swami done.  My B son is a Nomad who refuses to give up milk.

Explorers are such a diverse quirky group.   The common thread that I see is allergies and food sensibilities.  We may not all be allergic/sensitive to the same things, but we all are allergic/sensitive to something.   More so than the other Genotypes.

I made the mistake of voting as B Secretor.
I don't actually know my secretor status, but I guess most Explorers are nonnies.
I can sure tell I'm an Explorer though.
I've been on the diet for only a month and:

Painful skin rash on hand nearly clear
Constipation gone!
Lost 5 lbs without trying
Green eyes turning more blue and very clear!
Dry, cracking and peeling skin softening (everywhere)
Pain under ribs, gone!

Amazing!

I'm very curious about the "Explorers" GT. I measured my daughter today and her only choices came up as Gatherer or Explorer, she is NOT a Gatherer, lean and muscular no padding on that girl!and the strength tests pointed to Explorer as well. I came close to Explorer, coffee is only consumed in the A.M. tobacco smoke makes me gag-literally & etc.

So, even though I'm and A and she's an O we would both use the same diet if we were both Explorers?

I do wish I understood which foods were avoided for what reasons, eg. I have No cancer history and no fingerprint whorls-am I avoiding foods unnecessarily?

My mother and one of my brothers are Explorers O non, my sister is a left-handed O so she may also be an Explorer.

I have a left-handed A brother who likes experimental music so maybe he is exploring?
I measured him, he`s a Warrior or an Explorer. The strength test was nearly a tie.

My father is a Warrior A, everything fits exept for one thing; I don`t think he has a thrifty metabolisme. And since he is lefthanded can he be an Explorer too?

Yes that's true! I know it seems strange, but it sure is working for me. I've eaten a few things that were avoids (on the BTD as a B) that still feel wrong, but a few things that were avoids that feel right. I think the MOST important thing is to eat mostly Diamonds and superfoods and forget about nuetrals and black dots for a while and just see what happens. I've had amazing results.

Try everything on the "good" list at least once and just see how you feel and how your body reacts. I couldn't drink cranberry juice at all until after I started the Explorer diet. I loved the taste, but it made my stomach upset. Well... once I stopped drinking black tea and milk products (which were ok for me as a B) I had no problem with cranberry (or apple and pineapple). So I think it might be a good idea to revisit superfoods you don't like every so often to see if there's been a change!

What do his fingerprints look like? Arches or Whorls?

Hei nowishow!

His fingerprints are arches, I read somwhere that`s a hallmark of Warriors, he also has longer legs than torso wich is also common amongst Warriors.
He has always been in good health and I think the reason for that is that the tradiotinal
Norwegian diet is closest to the Warrior food list.
That`s why I think he`s a Warrior rather then an Explorer.

Do you know your secretor status, or can you find it out?  I think As have to either be rH- or non-secretor for explorer to be an option.  My little Teacher is allergic to milk and eggs, so he often eats what the explorers eat plus a few helpings of soy.

I don't know my secretor status, I've done so well on the A diet that I never bothered to find out. The only reason I'm even looking at the GTD is out of curiosity. I am probably a Teacher, in fact according to the on line tables that is really my only option even if I am a nonnie, my torso is longer than my legs and my upper legs are longer than my lower legs, Teacher is it. But, the strength tests for Teacher vs. Explorer came up with a tie.
I borrowed the book from the library and unfortunately it is an audio book, so I don't know what "black diamonds" are etc.

I do love the cheeses listed for Teachers !

Samy,
Welcome to the teacher circuit.  From one Teacher to another, although Swami may change my genotype to something else, in the meantime I consider myself a teacher.

The only cheeses I used to eat before were the soft ones, believing that the harder type cheeses I grew up with, were no good.  The same with coffee. But Teacher GT has changed that and I am loving including these in my diet (still with moderation) and enjoying a cup of coffee with soya milk or almond milk, everyday!!

D'adamo has said that explores are "largely a genotype of bloodtypes A and O." However, all blood types can be explorers.  He even said that an interweaving of A and O in generations is what gives explorers their traits of activation and silencing.  It says this stuff in the descriptions he has of the explorer genotype.  
I noticed that my blood thickens when i'm fired up but not able to have a physical outlet, such as when i'm driving and another driver does something to aggravate me.  So exercise gets my blood moving again.  I also get this way when i'm bored.
Anyone else feel this?

Yes Easy E, I get restless energy from too much inactivity.

When I was a highly inactive teenager in London, I used to force myself to briskly walk through the streets for hours after midnight.  Given my poor diet at that time, it seemed to be a lifeline of a kind.  I would push myself to take a quick breath with each step; two in and two out. I could literally walk for miles and feel an exhilarated kind of exhaustion - but only when I stopped.  It was essentially an aerobic form of walking.  As I performed this unusual exercise I revelled in the feeling of freedom, my bad mood was alleviated, and I seemed to be in some sort meditative trance.
Quoted from Dr. D' Adamo, the Explore Monograph
The Explorer GenoType has an interesting glycome --the universe of all their signaling sugar molecules. Once the Explorer glycome activates, it tends to behave like a diesel engine, which was once explained to me as 'Not wanting to be turned on, and having endured that insult, next not wanting to be turned off.'
If this was not the result of science, it would have to be called prophetic!

I am very grateful to have this deep understanding of myself.

Yeah I can relate to this!! I well remember one day taking off on my bike in a filthy mood to clear my head...I rode for miles, eventually down a steep hill, only to realise I would then have to pedal all the way back up again to get home Needless to say I was too out of breath on return, to be angry...
