Congratulations on getting your SWAMI...  Glad you like the food lists, as I had a similar reaction when I did mine.

I hope you get in the kitchen and do your cooking so you heal quickly...

Hi Lisa and welcome....We have a few common denominators....I am a Sagittarius, A+ Teacher but
I'm an INFP...

In my experience with cheese, see if you can find manchego cheese.  It's made from sheep's milk and
the one I tolerate best.  Same with ghee.  Don't focus heavily on cheese.....try to get plenty of plant
foods, especially vegetables, beans, soy foods and stay within your grain portions or go a bit under.  I find I will gain
weight on maximum portions of grains.  So what I do is bake with almond flour.....muffins.....and
check out the recipe file on this website and look for some of the gluten free options.  That will take
you away from grains that are likely going to be troublesome if you're trying to heal your gut.
A "ton" of digestive issues needs plant foods, not gluten grains.  Although the low overgrowth
cheeses will help heal your gut so try to incorporate a few to see how you do.

At first, I did super poorly on dairy.  WIth time and diligence I did a lot better.  I now can eat
pecorino, manchego, yogurt without issues.   I find imported cheese when cows or sheep have
grazed on grass is way more tolerable.

Gut issues....Check out Intrinsa, Gastro D.

Good luck.....come back and ask questions if you have any.....Lots of Teachers here will be happy to help you out!

Thanks for the Welcome!  

Chloe, thank you for your suggestions.  I had never heard of manchego cheese before.  We have a local cheese market - if they don't have it, I am pretty sure they can bring it in for me.  I made some ghee last week and I love it!  Hard to stick to just 1 tsp though.  SWAMI has my grains pretty low already 3 servings a day with 1/4 cup cereal, 1/2 muffin or 1 slice bread being a serving.  I have never had soy products before, but willing to give them a try.  I will also check into Intrinsa and Gastro D.

Hi Lisa!

Isn't swami great? It makes this way of eating much easier. I love the teacher diet, too. Even though I have many explorer tendencies, I much prefer this plan and do pretty well. I enjoy the large variety of foods for the teacher.

I am going to transition into the Teacher's Diet over the next month or two.  I have too much wheat in my house right now to go cold turkey.  I was wondering if there are any packaged breads or artichoke flour pastas out there that you guys can recommend.  Also, if I make bread with a bread maker, are there any good recipes that you can recommend.

I have a lot of white lines in my fingerprints.  I'd like to see what this diet can do for me, but I think the wheat is going to be the hardest thing for me to remove from my diet at this point.

Hi Altinker and welcome

Cannot find 100% artichoke pasta anywhere.  If you can't get rid of your wheat products cold turkey at least consider sprouted wheat breads, brown rice pasta (Tinkyada is my favorite brand
but if you're near Trader Joe's they have their own label of brown rice pastas which is just as good).

Recipes are on this forum and many are great...  Search for "gluten free" muffins, cookies and
just browse in general.  I'm sure you're going to see a lot of recipes you'd want to try.

This is my favorite gluten free website for baking.
http://www.elanaspantry.com/

This is my favorite site on the web for finding whatever recipe I'm looking for....no matter what
the ingredients.

http://www.yummly.com/

But you can google any recipe you're looking for and wind up at great websites too.  SO much
free recipes online....so many of them can be compliant if you read the basics.....

You can try going to the foodnetwork.com

Or Allrecipes.com

I've learned how to sub applesauce and soaked dates for sweeteners.....I use EVOO in everything
I bake even if it's a cookie or muffin or else I use ghee.  Try to use your beneficials in place of
ingredients when you can.  And most gluten free flours work well in baking....sometimes the
batter is heavier, but I fix that with beating eggs separately and folding together to give lightness
to batters.

Consider buying some new flours for baking....quinoa flour, spelt flour, amaranth, brown rice,
sorghum.....Go by your SWAMI list of beneficial grains.

And try not to focus on grains very much..  In all likelihood, your gut has been damaged from gluten in wheat and you want it to heal on this diet.....and it's likely you would do well to take a few months of the supplement Deflect for type A just to clear your
body of lectin damage.

  IF you still think you need wheat, like I mentioned before, buy sprouted wheat bread,
but honestly, I don't eat any gluten grains and don't miss them at all.. Focus on fruits, vegetables, beans, good fats, nuts, seeds, soy foods like tofu, tempeh.  Think PLANTS and good
sources of protein....cheese, eggs, high quality fish, some turkey...

Try not to eat the same foods every single day.  It's how we get hooked on foods like wheat...

Do your best....we're all here to help you.

Good luck

Please come back and report your progress, issues or struggles... We've all been there....and are
still going forward!

Okay, I have a question.  I just got my secretor test back, and I'm a non-secretor.  I also don't know if I am ecto-meso or meso.  I initially set my profile to ecto-meso and secretor and came out a teacher.  Then, I changed it to meso and non-secretor and came out a warrior.  I did a wrist test from one of the websites, and it said I was ecto.  I'm 5'2", 44, and 121 lbs.  I really don't fluctuate on weight much, but this is the heavier end of the spectrum for me.  If I change the body type, it seems to change my profile.

Do you guys have any good info on this?

don t get too hung up on the GT
Quoted Text
Dr D
It doesn't pay to get too hung up on the genotype determination that SWAMI supplies. The six basic types were more mission-critical with the GTD book. In
software you can make an infinite number of gray-scale variations, and indeed if you cross-compare between the different diets that result due to subtle
changes that result in different genotype outcomes you will find that they still bear considerable similarity to each other; the genotype serving to provide
a sort of 'targeted filter' more than a specific either-or type outcome.


As an AB it can be a bit more frustrating as there are the greatest number possible genotypes (which in a way makes sense, since the physical determinants become more important; and indeed ABs do seem to have a significant amount of physical distinctions between themselves and between the genders.)

Hey everyone new to the forum thing but I'll get it figured out in time. Another a+non secretor teacher genotype here at least I think I'm a teacher. Been dealing with health issues most of my life and after learning I was non secretor last year now suspect why. In the last year or so figured out I cant do the dairy recommended any wheat products, eat spelt instead, and recently peanut butter and peanuts, pretty sure its the molds on nuts and seeds that stuff me up and make my ears itch. Was thinking the non secretor blood type diet without the moldy foods might be my best option, or and the reason I'm on here maybe try the swami program, looking for opinions.

Thanks,

Paul

Hi unclepaul and welcome.

Did you take the test to see which diet would work best for you?

I'm a Teacher who began on this diet without tolerating dairy.  A few years into it and I'm somewhat able to eat a few things like yogurt, manchego cheese and parmesan/romano, but
days afterwards, I feel the effects.  So I don't think I really tolerate dairy either and am totally
intolerant of gluten.  It's easy to substitute gluten free grains, but to totally eliminate dairy,
it might just be easier to do the A non secretor diet for a few weeks and see how you feel. You
might get enough benefits before you decide to delve into the Teacher's diet.

Maybe read this and see if the BTD feels right for you.
http://www.dadamo.com/knowbase/newbie/1.htm

Spelt I'm sure you know is a gluten grain....but still, if you're not celiac or have severe gut
problems, spelt should work.

Sounds like you've got allergies and perhaps mold/yeast issues.  If given a choice, I'd choose
good quality peanut butter over loose peanuts.  Peanut butter isn't a moldy food.  As for
other nuts, you could soak them and then dry them in your oven on a low temperature...Or
just be careful where you buy your nuts.  I like nuts.com  Their nuts are super fresh and I
never had a mold problem.  Buying nuts in bins in a health food store is where I find the
nuts aren't rotated well.  Mold can become a problem.

My opinion is that you'd probably be fine on the BTD for A....following the non secretor options.
Here's my logic.  If you're sure you're definitely type A, and sure you're a nonnie, then there is just
one diet to follow with many options to be taking BTD specific formulas plus following health protocols.  If by any chance you're an Explorer or remotely a Warrior due to faulty measuring (this happened to me), then being on the wrong diet and finding out when it's not feeling right is simply wasting time.
Just seems like there is less room for error if you're not 100% positive you're a Teacher.

For specific health issues, check here for protocol support.
http://www.dadamo.com/protocols/index.htm

Good luck.

Thanks Chloe

First did the blood type diet back in 98 when going through heavy metal detox, was really strict with it, no joke I lost 40lbs in 3to4 weeks it was almost scary how fast the pounds came off. Dr. D talked about extreme weight loss for some on the diet. I'm older and fluffier now and the weight doesn't come off like that now. Mostly trying to regain lost health. Would like to lose weight but would like to keep as much muscle as possible. Back in 06 figured out thru trial and error that my body wont process supplements anymore and I no longer take OTC and usually react negatively to prescription drugs after taking for a short time so food is my only option. Caffeine can definitely cause me problems sometimes but not all the time it depends on how my diet is. My best proteins are eggs, fish and turkey once in a while chicken and lamb. My conundrum is my teacher measurements torso, leg, finger, head shape etc. with my inability to handle some of the teacher foods. I'm also not one of the low body fat percentage small framed ectomorph teachers he describes, I'm more a meso ectomorph medium framed medium body fat percentage teacher. When the genotype book came out it kinda got me confused, when I do the teacher diet I start having issues with dairy and the wheat, but from experience I know that to much red meat on say the explorer diet and I start developing gastric problems. The problem that I have is with the fruit and vegetable suggestions because all the recommended produce on the blood type diet doesn't gel with the recommendations on either the explorer or the teacher diet. For instance a lot of the fruit and veggies I could eat on the blood type are now either or on the genotype diet, grapes for example. And also the thing with peanuts, when I start eating a lot of peanut butter or the nuts themselves I have allergy problems and I cant seem to lose weight a little less so with almonds yet these would be highly beneficial on the BTD or genotype diet for me. What it boils down to for me is should I eat the foods on the BTD and not worry about eating things like grapes, bananas or corn because of my secretor status or should I eat the teacher diet and modify it according to my personal intolerances or should I narrow it down more with the swami program?  

Thanks

I like to know which way you eat pecorino cheese.

I was following Swami Teacher diet and manchigo cheese was diamond.
I just changed one item that I had a history of allergy and manchigo changed to super and pecorino becomes diamond from back dot.

I am allowed a lots of it but it is very salty.
It has lots of flavor but more suitable for grating.

Any suggestion?

I love pecorino grated and sprinkled on my roast veggies like zucchini and pumpkin, this makes a genoharmonic blend for me according to my swami.  A little stirred into pumpkin soup, on a salad, grilled on top of fish.
I love the sharp salty flavour but only have a tablespoon or it is too intense.  It is one food that appears frequently in almost every genoharmonic blend & i have found an organic one in the supermarket!

unclepaul...

A SWAMI requires that you take and enter very accurate measurements.

The SWAMI you can order online is in my opinion better than what you can follow in the book, however, I had issues dealing with how to enter "dairy" because it doesn't exactly ask you if you're allergic to  dairy proteins, it asks you if you're intolerant of lactose, which is the sugar in dairy.  Casein would be  the dairy protein.  So from that perspective, when I did my online SWAMI, I still wound up with a lot of dairy.  Only way to get rid of dairy was to get a professional SWAMI and to me, this was the most effective way to get a truly personalized diet that I didn't have to tweak at all.

But still, I don't want to discourage you from a SWAMI because it's better than what's in the book....it
will take your family genetics into consideration and make adjustments based on your potential for
specific diseases.  As a type A, saying you have a history of cancer, diabetes or heart disease or maybe
all three, your diet will be a much healthier one than anything you can adjust by yourself.

Remember, not all foods that you're allergic to or are reacting to right now necessarily means you can
never eat them again.  Low overgrowth cheeses (the right ones) help to heal the gut....so from that
perspective, I find that I tolerate my 3 beneficial dairy options (ghee, yogurt and manchego cheese)
about once a week...Any more and I'm feeling it's too much.  But I think even the small amount of
dairy I can tolerate helped my gut heal to a great degree.

Not giving you clear options, am I.....

I think it's either BTD for A nonnies or a SWAMI....but if you order a SWAMI, get someone to help you
measure. Watch the video and carefully go over the instructions in the book to make sure you're
getting the right measurements.  I followed the Warrior diet for 18 months because I sort of measured
myself and kept telling myself I could never be a Teacher because I didn't tolerate all that dairy.

And I too went back and forth saying "maybe Explorer?"  I found that when I did my own SWAMI, just
one or two questions answered differently pushed me over to Explorer.....so my professional SWAMI
(done at the Bridgeport clinic in CT with Dr. D) typed me as a Teacher.

If you can afford a SWAMI, I'd maybe just order one....see how you feel after you get the results.....
whether it feels right to you or not.

Another option is seeing a practitioner in your area who has SWAMI software.  Many do, some
don't.

Thanks Chloe, I looked at the SWAMI software program and I checked out the forum, it looks like that's gonna help narrow my genotype down and get me on the right track. I know I'm a blood type A+ non secretor and today I did my finger prints, 4 whorls and a loop on my right hand and all loops on my left,  the asymmetry might push me more towards explorer. I also have the tooth shoveling and no extra molar cusp. So come payday I'm gonna order SWAMI and get this figured out. I've been trying to get the Teacher diet to work for several years with limited success so after awhile I just kind of gave up. I'm hoping this can help me regain my emotional and physical well being. Thanks again.

I am new to this diet. I have found that I sweat more or more readily when I do chores or any activity. Before starting the diet, same activity would not cause thus. Does this mean that my body is functioning better? Throwing out toxins? Was not looking for this result and it has been enough for me to notice it. Happens only when I am following the diet as I should.

Bee  - welcome to teacherland.

Until someone more informed comes along here is my thoughts.

To perspire is natural and healthy. So my guess is that improving your diet is causing some cleansing. Probably a temporay discomfort. Stick with your best food and drink plenty of water.

Let us know how your doing.

Welcome BEE... I would have responded to you sooner had I known the correct answer to give
you.  I agree that to perspire is natural and healthy when a person is under some exertion, however it's difficult to know how much exertion it takes for a person to sweat under normal conditions. I think if I were carrying packages and walking up a flight of stairs, I might feel my body's circulation ramping up a bit which might make me feel warmer.  But don't think I'd be
sweating.  As long as you're feeling well and the foods you're eating feel like you're receiving
benefits, I would have to agree that the diet causes detoxing and probably a temporary thing.

Plenty of water to eliminate toxins is good advice.

Good luck to you!

Hi all,

I'm very confident that I am a teacher which means I'm doomed. Reason being, I love beef and chicken, strawberries and watermelon, drink many supplements including whey proteins and feel that aside from fish and cheese, there isn't much in way of proteins. I work out often and need a high protein intake. Any recommendations out there for good protein supplements? Also, how is it that cucumbers are bad but cucumber juice is good. I'm totally new at this and want to try but feel limited to where I can eat...never even heard of a cloudberry or where to find one. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi and welcome....You're not doomed.  There are so many good foods that would be far more beneficial for you than  the ones you've listed.

You might get some of those foods back if you do a SWAMI....Not beef, but chicken might become
a neutral and so would strawberries and watermelon.  Depends on your genetic history -- the
health issues of your ancestors.  The GTD book is simply a way to start, but you can find out
so much more if you know your secretor status, order a SWAMI from the store and make sure
you're measured properly.

Don't guess your genotype.  I made that mistake when I read the GT book when it was published
and said to myself "I can't be a Teacher because I'm not good on dairy".....and voila....I AM a
Teacher when properly measured.  And my diet does include yogurt but not whey protein.  I
have chicken as a neutral and same with strawberries. Your SWAMI intake form determines
your perfect diet....highly customized and you'd be doing yourself a big favor to get the right
diet from the start.  I wasted 18 months on the Warrior diet before I found out I was a Teacher.

Who measured you?  The best way to go about this would be get your secretor status established
and then make sure you watch one of the videos that show you or someone helping you exactly
where to place the measuring tape so you're carefully getting the correct measurements.

What do you mean by protein supplement?  You can always buy the type A protein powder which
contains soy, pea protein, rice protein.  Any rice protein powder should work for most As even
if they don't know for sure what genotype they are.

I'm very confident that I am a teacher which means I'm doomed. Reason being, I love beef and chicken, strawberries and watermelon, drink many supplements including whey proteins and feel that aside from fish and cheese, there isn't much in way of proteins.

Many of us needed to change our diet dramatically when we started...  It does take effort and persistence to change the menu plan, shopping patterns, etc., but the rewards are so huge that you'll only thank yourself later...  Obviously you feel a need to make a change or you probably wouldn't be looking at something else, so much success with the transition and a healthier you!

Thank you Chloe and ABJoe. I really appreciate your words and insightful info. Not to bore you but perhaps you can shed some light on my type. Basically, I'm an A+(secretor not known). I stand 6'2" and weigh 185. Definitely and ecto in bone structure and hard to pack on mass but workout frequently and try to eat well. In the latest genotype diet book, teacher was really the only option. My torso is definitely longer than my legs with my lower being slightly longer or equal to my upper. I'm left handed with my ring finger longer than my index on both hands. My fingerprints are loop and symmetrical on both hands. Jaw appears to be greater than the 125degree and my head measure greater front to back than side to side. Family genetics are over all healthy, possibly a kidney cancer somewhere down the line. Certainly do have acid reflux and heredity cholesterol and slight blood pressure issue. Also, really not sure of the SWAMI and what that does but will try to look it up. Any and all thoughts appreciated. Thanks again.
