Hi Snowflake...I will do my best to answer you although if others have more information, I'm
hoping they'll share their opinions.

I tried to search for you online....attempting to see what lupine beans are.  As a general rule, if something isn't listed on typebase/books/swami it would be considered a neutral and possibly considered neutral because it hasn't been tested or perhaps a plant species isn't universally known or available....but in this case, being that you're using something regularly which might have a lectin in it that is bad for your blood type or GT, it's difficult to tell exactly what bean this lupine is. Or
what other plants it's commonly related to. Do you have a SWAMI?  Is a lupine bean listed at all?
...


just noticed no one answered your question.

Lupin Seed  is listed in my SWAMI under Vegetable Protein as a Total Avoid at least it is me. I don't know if this is the exact same thing you are referring to.

I am 54% Teacher from SWAMI and Secretor Test is not done. When I run the SWAMI Secretor and Non-secretor there is no big difference in food choices.

I am debating on doing Secretor test. I appreciate your experience.

purlgirl, when you re-ran your SWAMI and got spelt and kamut eliminated did you change anything
in your intake form?

Welcome Lauren....

I agree with purlgirl that a secretor test would be very helpful for you.  So would a SWAMI.


Don't know how I missed your question.

No I didn't change anything this time.  But I have updated it several times as I figured stuff out.  I think it is just catching with my input and Dr D's ongoing work.  I will check it out again soon. WE and SWAMI are all work in progress

Thanks for gettin' back to that question, purlgirl! Your answer was actually excactely what I needed to read!! That's how I found out I made a mistake in searching my swami since I was typing (I use it as pdf) lupine, with 'e' at the end , so this little mispelling "sabotaged" my search . Lupin seeds are on my Swami as an absolute avoid, too!!  Goodness, I was still drinking this lupin(e) coffee. So I am glad that I know now I should avoid it from now on. Lupin(e) coffee is made of the lupin seeds, so your answer was of great help to me, thanx very much

"I stopped two avoids a week, while eating all beneficials, I had very serious health problems, and they started disappearing soon, afterwords, arthritis pain, from walking with a walker baby steps due to COPD and congestive heart failure, with diabetes, and a heart attack.  No pain in one month, walked with cane within 2 months, off of oxygen completely now, lost 100 pounds, walking on my own, and feeling so much better.  So,I believe, getting rid of wheat and corn,first most important, beneficials important, if serious problems, if not too serious neutral to spice things up, as desired. Within, three weeks, possibly have all avoids eliminated.

Remember your compliant spices and herbs, important!  "

Anyone eating snail? It is superfood for me as a Teacher. I am reading Live Right for Your Type and it  is especially recommended for ability to unmask cancerous cells.

Whole Food carries in butter sauce and it costs more than $20.00 per pound with shell.

I appreciate any inputs. Thanks.

I looked around some time ago and couldn't find any that didn't have avoids included, so I opted to go with "Helix Plus" supplement:

Hi Sunnyside!

I ate it as a child because I didn't know what it was, just that my Grandmere made this great smelling sauce with butter and garlic! Not anymore! My DH loves escargot and eats it at nice restaurants, but he is an O and doesn't "need" it like I do! So, I do as ABJoe does...take the helix from NAP.

Hi Cajun, I rather eat the food than supplement but I will consider Helix Plus. I found out Trader Joe used carry frozen one two years ago. TJ's customer service says they discontinued because it is not selling. I am going to keep looking.

Thank you.

Snails - Escargot   === also a Diamond for me, but I haven't really got into them.  Really should bc there is so much cancer in my family.

One of my sis got a can of snails - opened, drained, froze enough to be able to chop them --- then saute them with mushrooms -- made a wonderful Speghetti sauce.  Really couldn't tell them apart (mushrooms and snails)  

I would eat them again - but not raw

Subject - my saying: Spelt and Kamut went from Beneficial to Avoid in my SWAMI.

Update:  I reran my SWAMI and found I had somehow changed something -- can't figure out how.  Some information fields were completely blank - don't know why.

Corrected my info and it's very close to what it was before.    

So if you see any radical changes (example - food goes from Diamond to Avoid) go right back and make sure you haven't erraced some info accidently

Still love my SWAMI.

Do you know where you can get the can? I have checked local stores or online but no luck yet. Some online article mentioned get from your garden.

New to the GenoType as of this past weekend.  Can anyone tell me if there are updates to the food lists based on GenoType?  All I see on the main site is links for Blood Type.  Based on results from a web quiz I came across on one of the links, it's recommended I follow GenoType more closely than BTD.

Also, any recommendations on substitutions for someone who's Gluten Intolerant as well?

Haven't tested secretor status yet, and can't afford the test at present until I find a job.  Waiting on SWAMI as well until I've made some changes myself and can afford the cash outlay.

There isn't a place for updates to the Genotype Diet food lists, and I haven't heard of any.  SWAMI makes the best diet, but I understand the need to wait for the budget...

It is hard to make any yeast based bread without gluten, but many use a flax focaccia style bread.  
We make pancakes with rice flour, flax, and almond flour along with the standard wet ingredients.  We also use rice and flax to make a pizza dough.  We use rice, arrowroot, and almond for sugar cookies...  It just depends on what carbohydrates you can use and mix and match until you get a good combination...

OOPs.  Recheck of results makes me change to Warrior from Teacher (followed wrong link on finger length).  Though I don't match some of the base characteristics, I already eat most of the superfoods on the list and avoid most of the avoids for Warrior.

Thanks for the info on the bread.  I've been using some box mixes recently as well as a navy bean and rice from the farmer's market.  Going to limit the premade and check ingredients more closely.

Planning breakfasts based on eggs, occassional GF cereal or oatmeal or fruit smoothies with yogurt or kefir.  The elimination of ALL red meat and poultry and most cheese will be tough, but I've noted a few neutrals when I match up the differnt food lists.

Adjusting a few items at a time as I remove items from the cupboards and refrigerator.

It is a snowy day today and I am stuck inside... not good for this outside kind of gal!! Love the beauty and gazing out the windows and all but: not in the mood for housework, laundry is done, not ready to bake so I am in a daydreaming mood.

Questions for other teachers:

1. Do you have to plan your day ahead of time or do you wake up and go with the flow?
2. Do you feel guilty if you have not physically accomplished something each day?
3. Are you more compliant during any one specific season or pretty much the same all year? (ex: I tend to be the most compliant in spring and summer due to variety of fruits and veggies I love to fill up on.) I think I want too many carbs in cold weather.
4. Do you have chronic sinus/nasal issues year round?
5. Do you enjoy many types of music? (ex; genres on my iPod include rock, pop, oldies, cajun, celtic, Israeli(Ishtar), French, country, reggae and Gregorian/Franciscan/Benedictine chants)

Hi, cajun.

Wish I could stay "stuck inside" sometimes, especially when we get a foot of snow or during a hard rain, but, alas, I still have to get up and go to work.  When retirement comes, will be nice to just hang around the house and take care of myself.  But, I know what you mean, I get "cabin fever" even on the weekends and just have to get out at least for an hour or I go nuts.

Here's my answers to your questions:

1. About the only planning I do is making a shopping list.  If I don't, I'll surely forget something and then get so mad when I get home.  I'll start cooking and there's a missing ingredient...argh!  There are other lists, too, like for the library, what to take on a trip, etc.  I go with the flow with just about everything on a free day that I'm not working.  Except for meal planning...that is planned to a T.  If not, then there's nothing ready to eat, and them I'm faced with he horrid prospect of going out and killing my compliance.  Keeping extra meals in the freezer is a must, too, to keep me compliant.

2. Not really.  I'm not too much into exercise these days.  I plan on doing more walking when the weather improves, but these winter months are keeping me like a hibernating bear who simply drives himself from cave to work and back to cave again.  Cooking itself is exercise to me.  I'm on my feet sometimes for up to two hours straight preparing something.  I can make some really elaborate meals sometimes, and like to make extra and freeze it for later.  Not really exercise, I guess, but it wears me out.

3. It seems as if warm weather brings on the most temptations for me.  Firing up the grill for hamburgers or steaks (big no no's).  Or trips to Dairy Queen.  Or traveling somewhere, and then having to go out to eat.  Winter forces me to stay in so I then cook and stay compliant.  I can get great produce year round, so spring/summer really doesn't bring anything special to my diet.  Maybe a nice local watermelon, but that's about it.  Most of the local vege's at the farmers market here in spring/summer seem to be avoids, or vege's I don't like.

4. No chronic sinus/nasal issues, never been bothered with that.  

5. Music... well, I can play the piano.  Love just about every type of music.  Was in musicals in high school.  Been to several concerts.  Have written a little music.  Have tons of music that I listen to.  Actually listening to some jazz as I write this.  Our university library has over 6,000 CD's of many genres which keeps me busy discovering new stuff all the time.  And, of course there's the internet.  There are full albums of music on Youtube that I listen to at work all day long.  I also love movies, but only enjoy watching them at home.  I hate going to the movies, and not too crazy on going to concerts anymore either.

Hope that helped.

Good questions Cajun.

#1. I can't give you a definitive answer because there's some routineness and flexibility in my average days homeschooling 4 children. The flexibility works well for me as long as I"m not running around in the car or with the kids all the time on a moment's notice.

#2. I won't feel guilty if not much gets done from time to time because I don't need to stress myself out unnecessarily; my kids do a good enough job of that themselves. Of course, I don't make excuses for being perpetually lazy which is morally unacceptable. It's just that I"m in a season of life raising my children where sometimes you have to expect the unexpected and therefore some days I don't feel like a lot got done. Sometimes it's O.K. to let yourself off the hook. 3 out of 4 of my kids are primarily self-learners so they can have productive days when occasionally I don't.

#3. I've only been doing this diet for a little over a year, so not a lot of time has gone by. I don't find compliance is related to the seasons, but has a lot more to do with traveling or moving. I crave ice cream more in warm weather also, but I also like to buy a candy bar or 2 when I shop.

#4. I've had chronic sinus/nasal problems all my life, but I"m primarily more susceptible to problems in cool or cold weather when more viruses are going around. Therefore, I can get away with eating more dairy without a problem in the summer.

#5. I have to admit I am technologically illiterate and if it wasn't for my husband, I probably wouldn't even be on these forums. I like music from my generation (70's and 80's rock music) and also contemporary Christian music, as well as some kinds of classical music. I used to play piano and clarinet when I was young, but I did not continue in it.
