Hmmm...maybe somebody can clue me in here. Fitzing around with my SWAMI, seeing what changes cause my GT to change...for some things, I'm on the fence. One input, whichs is about ethnicity...maybe someone can suggest what I put, as changing from "Northern European" to "Western European" changes my GT from Teacher to Explorer. I'm mostly Irish, but also Portugeuse, however the Portugeuse I am comes from the Azores. So, that's pretty far west, but I'm more Irish than anything, and although that is also far west, I think of it as more Northerly. Also, I looked at my Blood Donor Card, it doesn't tell my type A1 or A2, where would I find that info>?

cleo,
I wouldn't worry about the GT Label.  I would compare the food lists and see what is common between the two or three runs when you choose different possibilities and focus on those good foods...

A1/A2 is part of a full phenotype test.  Yo would have to pursue locally to determine if anyone would do the test to find that information.  I haven't done the legwork to find out where to get it done...

I've made my own but I love this brand.  I prefer it to making my own.  Tastes better.  Comes
from grass fed cows...Just delicious!

Thanks for the tip.  I will make my own at least once from grass fed butter and then give this brand a try.

I make my own ghee too vacowgirl - it is so easy once you have made it once or twice and is delicious. I just put it on to melt while I am making dinner, or doing the dishes and half an hour later it is done. You just need to get the feel of how hot the element should be - I start it on medium until it is melted and then turn it down low to gently simmer and voila - it's done! I do tend to set a timer so I don't forget about it though - but even when it is slightly overdone, it is still yummy!!

You can keep an eye out for the unsalted butter being on special and then buy a whole lot and put it in the freezer ready to pull out whenever you need to make it.

Vacowgirl,
I buy Purity Farms organic ghee from Colorado. Whole Foods charges too much. We have a market called Henry's in CA where it is cheapest. Someday I will try and make it.

Cleo,
I am a mix of Northern, Western and Southern European ( French, Irish, Scottish and Italian) so I was really confused when the only choice was to pick one of those!
I first ran Western then Southern. It stayed Explorer. Next, I changed one
physical feature and it changed to Teacher. I have run it a few more times with Western and Southern and it stayed Teacher.

Yeah Cajun, it's weird. Plus with Irish and Scottish, that's more Northern Europe, so really you have a trifecta. I doubt you can average them, cause what if you were, oh, let's say Moroccan and Japanese, you wouldn't round it off to, say,  India (or wherever the middle is). For me also, my father was adopted, so while I know his birth parents came from Ireland (my dad was literally in utero for the trip at sea), I have no clue their health history. I really want to get that NatGeo mita-dna thing, I just have to ask one of my brothers so I can get my fathers side too, "brother, will you spare me some saliva, please?" --that will surely trump the arbitrary Euro issue. Maybe you could try that too?

Cleo,
Absolutely! The NatGeo test is my next step.
I am mostly French on both sides ( so Western Euro and Southern due to Pyrenees and Medi coast of France and Venice, Italy))  but a cousin found a lineage to Laird Lackey of Scotland! My Dad's side has a few Irish surnames.
Its cool that at least you know you have Irish roots. Do you know the ship name or where they lived in Ireland?
My husband and I were fortunate to have visited that beautiful, friendly country twice and certainly plan to return someday!  
I love reading, learning, sharing everyone's geneology. If only our DNA/ blood
could talk!?!

I am trying to figure out how to get more of the diamond fruit in my day but having trouble finding them online.  So far, the lingenberries,Loganberries, and black currants that I have found all have sugar in them or are $4.00 for just two ounces.  I can't even find Rowanberries.   Can any of you help me with a good source that doesn't cost more than gas?

You may have to wait until the fruits are more in-season to be able to get them at a reasonable price.  Do the best you can, but that doesn't mean you have to rob banks to eat...   If you have to eat non-diamond superfood fruits when the others are not in season, make the best of it...  All of the fruits you mentioned are rather rare, even in season, so they may never be really plentiful, unless you grow your own.  We are all at the mercy of the food industry regarding what additives they put in even fresh frozen foods, unless we grow and preserve our own.

You might have a different list of fruits than me, but are dates, prunes and blueberries, cantaloupe, figs, watermelon diamonds for you?  Those are easy to find in a supermarket.
For good dried fruits, try http://www.nutsonline.com

I can have dates, blueberries,raspberries--no on the figs, watermelon, cantaloupe.  I have never seen a musk melon anywhere but that is supposed to be okay.  Love, love nutsonline.  I like variety and really enjoy berries.  I was just trying to get more diamonds on the list in my diet.  I just ordered the swami today and that may or may not change the foods I am allowed to eat.  For now, my digestion is torturing me.  I take digestive enzymes, but they don't fix everything.

I think you'll probably see some food changes with your SWAMI. I did.  It's personalized so it's
going to be tailored just for you based on what information you input.  Just be very precise
with your entries and measure correctly.

Were you tested to determine you're an A1?

And do you know your secretor status?

The more information you can input into SWAMI, the better your diet will suit you.

When I did the advanced calculator (after doing the basic & strength testing)it said I was a teacher for both secretor or non secretor.  I am A+ blood type.  

I thought it was more important to get Swami first (money being tight) because the calculator said I was a teacher either way regardless of the secretor status.  I know it makes a difference in Swami, but I will have to do it next month.

You're listing yourself as an A1...were you tested?  You don't want to tell SWAMI anything that
isn't accurate.

As for completing a SWAMI without entering secretor status, not a great idea....but you can change your SWAMI later on...... Your diet would just be that more perfect for you if
you could enter secretor status and have your diet be calculated optimally from the start....Most non secretors feel their best when their secretor status has been factored into their diet.
There are issues related to being a non secretor that you might want to know about. If it were me and I had limited funds, I'd get my secretor status done first....because you can still
follow the book for awhile longer.

The chance that you might be a non secretor or even an A2 would change your SWAMI
diet's outcome.  For example, I get lamb as a neutral and chicken livers as a superfood.
It's because I'm an A2 and can process more animal protein then an A1.

I guess what I'm saying is that if you're going to want the best diet possible, why not
get as much information into your SWAMI that you can possibly get before you start to
follow it.

I think you most likely have seen muskmelon's you have just failed to call them by their correct name.

What is commonly referred to in the US as cantaloupe is actually a muskmelon. The muskmelon tern is used consistently in all the BTD books, the Genotype book, and SWAMI.

What is called cantaloupe in the D'Adamo literature is a European cantaloupe. It is described here:

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?91

It is difficult to find this cantaloupe in the US.
