Quoted from Pixitron
Hi, recently bought genotype diet book and took tests to determine my genotype. But I am really part Hunter part Gatherer, what do I do? I am blood type O +, my torso is longer than my legs, my upper legs longer than lower and there is a small gap at the back of my legs, plus oval face with wide angle jaw and index and ring fingers same size on both hands (thus we say index is longer). All Gatherer so far. However, I have spade teeth and no extra bit on the molar, my finger prints are identical left and right and I have a lot of white lines in them. My head is long, my waist to hip is average and when putting my fingers around my wrist I am ectomorph, although I am short and consider myself pear shaped. I have instances of both arthritis and diabetes and high blood pressure in my parents and grand parents. I have poly cystic ovaries nd trouble with acne and show early signs of insulin resistance. Don't know whether to follow hunter or gatherer, help!


My measurements are exactly the same as yours!!
The book had me as a gatherer because of the finger measurements, but SWAMI made me a hunter. For arguments sake I played around with assumed different finger measurements, since I found those hard to take accurately and they had NO bearing whatsoever on my hunter-ness !!
Neither did if my legs were andric or neutral or if I was a taster or supertaster.

SWAMI must therefore put more emphasis on the combination of all the info it asks of you, which is more than in the book.

Someone posted here that they eat the beneficial foods for both gatherer and hunter.
I did that too while I waited for the SWAMI to arrive so I'd be done with the 'washing out' period and could jump straight in
In retrospect...it was quite restrictive and hard to stick to and I did not feel very good on it (even though I expected I would ).

So, my advice is, if you can, buy SWAMI it'd be excellent for ALL your health issues.
Or....be brave and eat 100% gatherer diet for a few weeks and then change to 100% hunter and see which one made you feel better with the least symptoms.
Always, always blame the food- and, you MUST keep a food diary!
A necessary pain as some reactions to food only show a day or two later

Best of Luck!

Thanks cajun - that's so sweet of you (sometimes it is still easy to feel all alone...)

I agree!  (on both statements)

So does swami give you a diet that is a mix of genotypes? Or does it show you which is majority and give you that diet? I want to follow the genotype diet, but cannot commit to such change with doubts in my mind about whether I am doing the right thing for my health, really want a diet that suits me, part hunter, part gatherers and a little explorer...


Swami will show you which genotype you express the most....and it may be verry close, but then based on your particulars, it will craft a diet that addresses all your issues.
