After you add the shield you should probably figure out whether you are a Gatherer or Nomad.

You need to determine which you are before you can really follow the GenoType diet.

There is a lot of material on this site to assist you in choosing your GenoType. If you look at the old threads you will probably find others who have worked through whatever questions you might have on determining a GenoType.

Also there are handy videos at:

I am so confused. EVERY test I take, I am a Warrior.  However, the foods that it tells me to eat could kill me (eventually). I have Celiac Disease (gluten allergy - need to avoid wheat, rye, barely, malt and any form thereof),


If we know we have an allergy or a food intolerance like celiac, we should avoid those things. I avoid gluten-containing grains/foods. I have been avoiding oats for a long time, but I think I will try out Bob's Red Mill's gluten-free oats. If I react, then I'll give them to my husband to eat.

What about bizarre Gatherer laws like: no orange juice, but you can have oranges & no string cheese but you can have mozzarella.  Entirely confusing.

Started my diet five days ago and feel no differences so far.  How long has it taken others before feeling better?


Orange juice takes away the fiber so it might have different values. String cheese is different from mozzarella because it is highly packaged and different cultures and molds are used to produce string cheese.

I was just looking at the recipes from the link that was posted on the genotype site. So what is the black dot ingredient for? Does that mean the food is good for you or you should avoid. I'm thinking it's avoid but want to be sure.

consider it an occasional neutral, once your genes have reset.....and you have lost the excess weight.

For me, the Genotype is a fair bit more accurate than the Blood Type, with regard to compatibility with foods. There was the odd item, though not many at all, in the Blood Type where I wasn't sure if they quite fitted with the rest of it. Rye bread is a perfect example. I used to be quite a bit of pain at work until by chance I just cut it out by simple deduction. When I read the Genotype book rye was a no - no. I smiled.

"Genotype and Blood type diets are two different programs, and they really can't be compared.  It helps me to remember that they have different goals:

Blood type diet helps us make the best of the bodies that we have inherited, and to be as healthy as possible with the health or illness tendencies that we have.

Genotype diet re-programs our genes to express positive traits that may have been dormant for generations, and to tone down (suppress) traits that may have shown up as disease in our ancestors for generations.  This diet is designed to make deeper changes."


I read this quote from page two of this thread and found it interesting.  I've struggled with GTD for two years now.  Not in eating according to the diet but rather understanding it.  
On BTD I felt IMMEDIATE changes.  Within three days the constant runny nose that I'd had for over 15 years was gone!  However, switching to GTD I've felt nothing.  NOTHING!  Are you supposed to feel anything?  Are the changes so deep you won't notice it until your 90 years old and healthy as a horse?  
Switching from BTD to GTD took things away that I didn't think needed to be taken away.  Very little changed, actually, from eating as an O non-secretor to eating as a Hunter.  So perhaps I'm not expected to feel anything.
I stopped eating Iceberg lettuce and switched to Romaine, took out spinach, the seasonal cherries and that's about it.  I reckon that not much will change from just three items.

That is the uniqueness within us all.  Your diet was almost OK for your type, the minor changes are making a deeper difference for you to enjoy even without noticing it!!! Enjoy it!!

if you feel you need yet more changes, health wise, you might now want to try a swami

if you are pleased with the changes BT now GT have already given you, it means you fit the basic BTD program, the way Dr D designed it from the start......I see nothing wrong with that, on the contrary! sounds great!

I feel really good for the most part.  Doing the non-secreter diet for O's made the final difference for me.  
Avocados are something of a question.  I use to love them on BTD because they were highly beneficial on the non-secreter diet.  But on GTD they became a complete avoid, not even a black dot.  I was greatly disappointed because I dearly love avocados.  
But I discontinued eating them anyhow.  Now when I eat them I wonder if it's a neutral for me.  Because they don't make me feel bad yet I don't feel good either.  
My husband and I are hoping to be able to do a SWAMI before the year is out.

I did far worse on the GTD than on the BTD. When I had my SWAMI done, it ended up with mostly O foods, with a few Gatherer adjustments. Chicken and turkey are both neutral for Os, turkey's beneficial and chicken's an avoid for Gatherers; I kept the O neutral value for chicken but gained the GTD Beneficial value for turkey. I had a lot of subtle adjustments like that.

Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

swami gave me back things that BTD had taken away. Interesting note, I had not paid attention to all the details of swami when I had a few red pepper flakes in a curry dish. I thought, oh well I know it's an avoid but it's too late now, however, I did not have a bad reaction to them (as I had in the past). Come to find out, swami gives me red pepper flakes as a black dot.

Lose your disease, lose your identity.

Great quote.  

How about also, loose your disease by remembering your identity?

Got a question.

Probably asked a bazillion times. I am AB, which typically leans towards Nomad, Warrior, Explorer, Teacher. Well, I tested out undeniably at Gatherer.

Did I possibly do something wrong?
