It seems people shy away from the Explorer (and Warrior) diet. But, I feel so much better that If eye of newt was on the list I'd probably eat it!  


I guess i'm one of the few who actually welcome the explorer diet.  Coming from the o-nonnie diet my food options have expanded quite a bit and i still have some of the same avoids that i did on the BTD (which makes it easier to transition).  I'm following a combo of both the BTD/GTD, but mostly sticking to the GTD.

Anyhow, great to see you all on here.  Let me know if you are able to find quail eggs, emu meat, and eye of newt (or whatever obscure foods we are supposed to be eating).  Peace!

Welcome!  Japanese restaurants tend to have fresh quail eggs.  You can order it as a topping for sushi / sashimi, which I did once.  (It's served raw, and it's somewhat difficult to eat with chopsticks.)  But I've not found them in a grocery store.

Good luck!


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I agree with you, Mickey.  (I presume myself to be a nonnie.)  I especially like all the sweets!  But I don't like the change on walnuts.

Oh well.

I tend to just try to avoid wheat, dairy, soy & corn (and derivatives.)  Nothing else bothers me all that much.

Quail eggs are no problem most of the asian markets here sell them.  Some whole foods and grocery stores with extensive gourmet food sections have them.

Emu is not quite as common. If you have difficulty finding it locally you can always order it online. http://www.emusingsecrets.com/meatorder.html

Here is a recipe for faux eye of newt:

12 eggs

Green food coloring as needed (or diet allows)
1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish or appropriate substitute for diet
1 tablespoon compliant mayonnaise
1 pinch celery salt
1 Mustard powder

1 can pitted black olives

Fix like devil eggs. Food coloring is for making yolk mixture green.
After you refill the eggs with the green yolk mixture,
you should place one of the olives in the center of each "eye"



MIfHI                            I follow a SWAMI diet.

Quoted from Tea Rose
Wheat changes my personality and handwritting.  Perfume/Cologne makes me angry and mean, really mean. I can feel the cells in my body celebrating the music I hear.  I avoid malls because of everyone's energy.  I hate going to wakes and funerals because I can feel the sadness.  


That's fascinating, especially about the handwriting.

I've worked in the same building for 7 years and have dreaded going there every day.  It isn't the content of the work I resist, since I'm passionate about what I do.  I used to think my issue was the lack of windows and horrid cubicle space, and I'm sure that is part of it.  But just a year ago, I learned that our office is build on top of a cemetery!!!  Not only that, but it used to be a fire department before it was an administrative building.  Well, no wonder!  The land is teeming with grief and anxiety.  

I couldn't believe nobody had told me before.  It seems like something you should tell people before you hire them, but I guess a lot of people think "energy-sensitivity" is just superstition.  If they lived in my body, they would think differently!

If I am in the mood then I love being around people, but I NEED to have alone time.  I hate the thought of going to a party, I will dread it for a week and then when I get there, I have a great time (usually), but I am usually the first one to leave also.
I can feel the cells in my body celebrating the music I hear.
I feel energy from trees.  


T Rose I can definitely relate to this.

Laura T I can also relate to what you said about your work place.

One of the reasons that the Chinese developed feng shui is that they, like many of our ancestors, understood such things. HONOR the Ancestors, honor the energy of a place, because such things are real.

When I discovered shamanism it helped me to put into context my sensitivities to energy, and I found remedies for such problems.

The good news it that once you understand what's happening you can do something about it.

Like using the GTD to know what foods enhance our immune systems and which help protect us from environmental sensitivities and such.

Quoted from LauraT

I also did some searches for the 'skull types' Dr. D mentions when he describes how Explorers look, and they totally resemble me (& ancestors):  narrow face, squarish jaw, and often with 1 eye squintier than the other.  


I'm an INFJ, used to be an INFP.  I think I'm Enneagram Type 6 - The Loyalist and 4 strongly too.  Can be paranoid, very sensitive, introverted and quiet but sometimes very bold and outrageous as well.  Reactive to others emotions and surroundings.

I love your description of how explorer's look.  It cemented my certainty that I'm an explorer.  

The squinty eye part got me thinking. If you were Clint Eastwood, how could one eye be more squinty than the other one!!  He's got the squintiest eyes ever and made a career out of it. With his height, he's could be a Hunter though, not sure. He's right into health could be reading this you never know! He's certainly creative and entrepreneurial, lateral thinking and different though.  Probably alot of explorer on his SWAMI.  Would love to find out!

cozzete - thanks for sharing your knowledge, very interesting about introverted/extraverted.  

Great thread everyone.  It would be good if there could be more sections under the boards for the different genotypes and one general section.  It's getting really busy.

Oh!  I never thought of it being motion sickness.  There are times I get unreasonably dizzy for a second for no apparent reason (when I'm in crowds, for example), (and it's not related to the low blood pressure).  


No way, I thought I was the only one who got dizzy like that... it is really hard for me to go to wal-mart. I always thought it was because there was so much going on. The lighting, that makes so much sense!

Also, I've been sensitive to the weather for as long as I can remember and the warm temp during the summer has always bothered me until this summer, I've hardly noticed it. I'm four months on the diet... weird, huh?

This is too funny.  I was just watching a youtube video of Clint Eastwood singing (lip-synching?) "I talk to the trees" from Paint Your Wagon.  I giggled the whole way through but was totally transfixed.

I could see him as a Hunter, Explorer, or Warrior.  I'm not the best a typing GTD... the enneagram is definitely my specialty.  People who type as a 6 pretty much always are.  It's far more commong for 6's to type as other numbers than the converse.

Laura T, coincidence or what? Both thinking of Clint Eastwood.  Well we both are women!

He really sung that song! so funny! and he also wrote the theme for Unforgiven on piano.  Talent!

You're so right he could be a Warrior!  He's definately Type A after reading this: http://cms.ihrsa.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=Page.viewPage&pageId=15698&nodeID=15
He eats mainly vegan, soy but also every now and then only white meats, no cheese or red meat.  He works out alot too.  WARRIOR for sure!!!  Good pick Laura T.

Thanks for confirming I sound like a type 6.  Anymore you can tell me about those

What's his jaw like?  You might be able to pin him down between Warrior and Teacher if you can see his jaw.  He does seem to have a narrow face, but he might still have a good jaw angle.  He's built like my dad, a Teacher (who I was SURE was a Warrior until I measured him).  But I'd have to get a good look at his jaw.

Good idea Ribbit!

Sorry we are highjacking this thread.  

He is long limbed and has tendon like a teacher, you're right.  Looks like a square jaw too in this picture: http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/filmblog/2007/feb/23/mychatandduetwithclintea

If we all were famous moviestars, it'd be easy to measure our finger length by our hand imprints!  Didn't think of it, googled Clints fingers .  

This page has many of his hand imprints http://theclinteastwoodarchive.blogspot.com/2009/02/clint-eastwood-hand-prints.html.  Giving a quick measure (hard to tell though in some of them), looks like his D4 is longer in both hands.  

It fits, one of the most masculine actors would be andric!

That blows the warrior or explorer theory away.  Could he be a teacher?  but he doesn't eat cheese!  He's also 6' 2" (1.88 M).
What if he's an O and is actually a Hunter.  Hard to believe he'd be eating the wrong foods with his level of health and output!

Yeah, his jaw looks just like my dad's.  I bet he's a Teacher.  It's unlikely he feels so fantastic on his current diet if he was an O.  He would be on Atkins or South Beach or something.

Is it just me or is it an explorer thing.  Like quite a number of people I can become engrossed in something.  So much so that I forget to eat.  someone mentioned in one of the threads that explorers once they are up and going are unstoppable (something like that).  My query is re energy.  I find I get going and the energy level is amazing and then suddenly wham, something floors me or there is  a change and I have no get up and go or interest in much except maybe to sit and read.  Does anyone else have that flattened battery time after feeling really good etc.

deeply allergic to cats, slightly to fluffy fur dogs.  Quite spiritual, more recently drawn to shamanism.  sounds as if am more introvert than extrovert from the various entries.  Him in doors says how can someone spend so much of their time being concerned about the way they feel react etc, especially to food.  Have attempted to explain that it runs in the background and is an awareness not an obssession?

Rosamunde, yes sometimes I clean the whole house, knowing that the day after I will be really tired and unmotivated.  But do I make that happen by doing manic cleaning or is it preconception?  It could also be prodomal before a migraine or a headache is coming.  Also to do with the pressure in the air.  With Low pressue weather, lack of energy, cold skin...  
Yeah I get engrossed in things and sometimes think eating will slow me down so I put it off.  And can get obsessive and change quickly!

Thanks for all your interesting posts.

Well here I am
B explorer 37 %
( swami- in book I am nomad)

I am mostly ENFP ( However at times I come out as INFP)
and I am a 7 with 6 wing but I used to (10 years ago or so) to be more 8 winged

Things that doesnt fit me in explorer;

I am not very allergic - apart from grass and dust mites ( but both are pretty much under control an doesnt bother me much)
I am not very caffein sensitive- coffe late at night- bad idea- but fine the rest of the time.
I am Not a nonnie
or super taster ( just a normal taster)
I am not left handed.
I dont have a problem with my liver

explorer features in me is;

I am asymmetrical - in fingerprints
(and boob( a nomad thing ))
I am Mesomorphic/with a little endomophic side
I am rh negative
I do do things my own way BIG time  
I seem to get well/heal fast
I can be accident prone
I am very hard to diagnose
and I never know how I react to medication


More Nomad sides
My world view is receptor
I am sensitive to synthetic material like polyester
and prefers cotton, bamboo, linned silk and wool
I  am very weather sensitive
just  as I am very visual
- and I tend to keep my real emotions hidden, but is raher plegmatic as well.
Optimistic
got small teeth and incisor front teeth.
White lines on 2 fingers
Proptaster

I even got a few Gatherer sides as well  

My diet isnt very explorerlike;
got chocolate as diamond  
red meat, full fat dairy and several cheeses as superfood
and lots of the normal diamonds for explorers are either neutral or diamond
so I have a truly Henriette diet
