Cajan -  I did it about a week ago and came out 50% Teacher.

My SWAMI is a   "synthesis of GTD and BTD  Food values" (combo I guess)

My food list is quite a bit dif.
Red meat & poultry are about the same (only sheep, goat & some poultry)
Lots more fish  
eggs reversed - egg yolk is diamond & white a beneficial

Less Dairy.  I think they may all be sheeps milk cheeses - not sure
Lots more fruits and veggies.
I get back some of my fav foods. Yea!

I'm happy with my program - it is a lot to learn
So glad I was finally able to get it done.

Oh Purlgirl...you are lucky! Good for you. I loved my teacher diet! I thought it was the best one of all. Oh well, now I have to explore....

I think I may be  a teacher now not explorer, as I had mentioned in a previous thread....but for me, I only have ghee, manchego, and yogurt as beni's. Kind of bummed, as I had been Explorer, and had more cheese then, like mozz, ricotta, and cottage. can't exactly cut a slice of ghee

use common sense .....weighing the ghee or by spoonful, might be in order, no?

I wasn't meaning that I can't measure the amount of ghee, I was meaning it's not exactly a quick snack...a slice of cheese a few times a week is an easy source of protein, after exercise, or in the a.m....that's what I meant...and after readind on this thread about the awesomeness of being able to eat cheese (which I love) and having only one cheese I can eat..I am bummed. Plus, I realized I lost tomatoes and chocolate, which I had recently added. Just frustrated, Lola. But thanks!

Cleo,
What thread re: genotype? I would like to know how the change came about.
Are you a secretor? You and I are both A+ and tasters with some uncertainty about whether we are more teachers or explorers. Just curious as I am re-running my Swami and trying to figure it all out.

Cajun, I saw some other people post re. how SWAMI had been updated, so I reran my SWAMI, and a few things were added to beni's--like tomato and chocolate, I was thrilled! Then, I went and took a look and realized I had the category that asks genoype set as "Explorer"--which it had computed for me originally. I reset that to "determine my genotype for me"-and I wound up as a teacher. Now, if I list myself as a secretor, I am a teacher, and if I leave the secretor status question unanswered I am also a teacher (both are changes), yet if I say non-secretor I am an Explorer. I will get my secretor status test done, the only reason I haven't is BC it's a hassle as I live in New York, where we can't get the test mailed to, or mail it from. Stupid antiquated law in NY, not NAP's fault. Anyway, a lot of the food changed--I lost tomato and chocolate which I just added a month or so ago--and I lost ricotta, mozzarella. Not a lot of things I love were added. I even lost pears which I had been eating religiously for months. So, I am frustrated--having chosen items only beni, some of them the pricier option, and now to find they are avoids. Plus, a few years ago, when I just had the book (before SWAMI), I was a warrior, even strenth-tested for it on the old website, which showed the net most likely thing to be explorer, never teacher. In reading this thread, I am bummed, because I am a total cheese-lover (not much of a meat eater), and yet, I can only have Manchego, even though I'm a teacher. Ugh. Ironically, in life, I am a teacher, and come from a family filled with teachers (career, not geno, but maybe both). I am going to get the test sent to my sister's in CT and have her send it to me, since this will be the only way to really know for sure. That is, until another update is applied to the software and I switch again. aAnd A LOT of the foods changed. A LOT>How about with you cajun? thanks for letting me whine.

Cleo --- Lola is right - your on the right track.

I was hoping you would be another Teacher.   There arn't many.  

Are you eating only Diamonds/Bennies (not neutrals)  
and   Are there a lot of temporary avoids (black dot) that you will get back in a few weeks.
Maybe avoiding dairy is helping your body clear out some problem???

Check your GenoHarmonic food combinations -  I found a cheese (Colby) in mine that is a Neutral but obviously  becomes more acceptable  in combination with other desirable foods.  

Secretor status is really a big deal.
  
I am a GT3 Teacher  - no doubt in my mind  ---but there were foods I just couldn't eat.  I believe it's my being a non secretor.  (not usual for teachers)
Sure enough SWAMI really adjusted my foods. Some are gone and some are added.  I'm still learning my program.   I havn't played with it much yet.   But I do feel I'm on the right track.  

Look at it that way -- your on a quest  -- much progress has been made -- and still more to come. Find a way to enjoy your current foods.     Get the secretor test done as soon as possible -- it's a biggie.  

Meanwhile do the best you can and find some joy in it.  Hang out here and on the A+Explorer thread.  We will all try to be supportive.

One more thing   -  How do you feel on you SWAMI foods???   Thats what really matters. Don't give up.

Cleo,
Believe me, you are not whining.....  
I agree...get your secretor test done! It will make some difference.
I am going to  re-run my Swami right now! I'll let you know....

Awww thanks guys! It is a journey, I've just been going through some major changes in other areas of my life, so I think at the moment I'm super-resistant to change, at first...now I'm feeling better about it. I went back and took note of some things I haven't enjoyed (and nearly forgotten about) for a while, and already ordered them via peapod to be delivered Friday night. Yeah to plums, and papayas. Woo Hoo. And yes, I HAVE TO get the secretor test done. My sister's going to think I'm so weird when I explain this to her "you're going to get a package....do not open it...mail it to me....it is for my saliva, but I have to elude the government...in a few days, you will get the package back an re-mail it for me". Wish I could see her face

Oh and PS I just made a stupid joke to myself, but also very poignant on one of the major changes in my life: there's no more smoking in the teacher's lougne. At least not by me. Over the last few months I have gotten down to about 2-3 cigarettes PER WEEK. And I have been smoking since I was about 16, so that's some pretty awesome stuff. Having tried to quit many time in the past, I can't tell you exactly how I quit this time...first of all in NY, they shot up to almost $12/pack (taxes people, want to move to NY?), and then, it somehow came naturally, and I have to think that somehow the diet helped with this. I wasn't obessed with smoking like I had been in previous quitting attempts, it almost "came naturally". And, like everyone who's ever quit smoking, I managed to gain weight, even though on the diet and exercising because you do just tend to eat more. But that is levelling out and I hope to start my ascent into bikini weather, a non-smoker for the first time in over 15 years. WOOT!

Wow, good on for giving up smoking Cleo - that is such an achievement!!

And welcome to the Teacher lifestyle - I love being  Teacher. Mind you I think we all get different foods even though we might be Teachers - SWAMI is so individual. I get lots of cheeses and yoghurt so I am very happy. Friends of mine who were A's did SWAMI thinking they would get similar foods, but they turned out to be and Explorer and a Warrior and got hardly any dairy at all.

Thanks, guys. When I get my next paycheck next pay period, I am going to order the secretor test. Who knows, maybe Ill get more cheeses. For now, I got gorgonzola as a neutral, and I'm going to be eating in, just in case I lose it in two weeks. I love the zola! And thanks for the well wishes re. smoking, sometimes I have to remind myself to speak kindly to myself when Ive done things right And that, along with this diet, and exercise, is the best thing I could have done for myself--ever, all times!

Cleo,
First, congrats on the not smoking. I never have, but all of my family and many friends did for so many years. It was very hard for most of them to quit and it took several attempts. So, keep up your good work!
Second, I did re-run my Swami and it changed from 40% explorer to 42% teacher!
I read over all my data and changed a couple of things....should have paid closer attention the first time! Little things make a difference!
Finally, how do you determine Leo/Scorpio? Just curious. When exactly is your birthday?

I am new to the Teacher's Lounge and figuring out how to do this program. Does anyone know if Raw cows milk is okay?  I read about beneficial bacteria of yogurt and kefir but wondered why raw milk isn't listed under the "avoid" dairy.  Can anyone answer this question?

Hi Kim and welcome.

What are you following?  The Genotype Diet book?  Because the diet is listed for each genotype in the book and I'm wondering if you measured yourself and determined you were a Teacher from the book.

Is your blood type A?

Do you know your secretor status?

As a Teacher I don't get milk....raw milk or any cow's milk and I'm pretty sure most Teachers don't get milk as a food option.......but I've done a SWAMI which is a computer software program Dr. D created for personalizing our diets.  You can purchase it on this website under
products and services.

Or you can follow the Teacher's diet from the book.

Just be sure you measured correctly and that you truly are blood type A and a Teacher.

You could also be an Explorer or Warrior if you're type A.

Cajun, Leo/Scorp explanation. My birthday Is August 10th, so I am a sun-sign Leo. However, both my Moon and Ascendant are conjunct to about two degrees precision in Scorpio...making me more Scorpionic, I also have another planet, I think Uranus in Scorpio, so...some feel the Moon sign is more important or at least of equal importance compared to the traditional sun sign, but there are so many factors that go into it, like angles made, etc., etc. I'm interested in astrology in all its manifestations.

Teachers have so many choices for bene bacteria.  All the cheeses will aid in your digestion no need for cows milk.. which will only make you constipated.

So enjoy the other foods on your list.

Chloe,

I measured so many times to make sure what geno type I am.  I am definitely a teacher with A+ blood type but I do not know my secreter status right now.  I have to figure out how to pay for the test so I can find out.  I get that fermented foods and yogurt add good bacteria to the digestive system but raw cows milk has beneficial bacteria in it.  The avoid list didn't specify pasturized or raw.  I can not drink any pasturized milk but do very well with raw milk.

I am just starting the program and am hoping it will help with my health.  I became ill 4 years ago and have chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalga and am testing positive for Lupus.  I do not at this time have any of the internal damage that comes with Lupus and am trying to stop the "mack truck" from coming.  I have been a vegetarian for 14 years of my life and then started eating fish and some other proteins.  

Reading how this program has helped so many others is giving me hope.

The avoid list didn't specify pasturized or raw.  I can not drink any pasturized milk but do very well with raw milk.

If I were you, I'd disregard the question of raw or pasteurized and just avoid milk altogether, at least until you get most of the inflammation under control...  

Lupus is a highly inflammatory disease, so avoiding your avoids (replacing them with superfoods) will be very good to reverse the diagnosis.  Chronic fatigue takes some time to recover from, as you will have to re-energize at a cellular level.

Much success on your healing journey.  Stick with us, you'll continue to learn and get support to stick with this lifestyle.
