Exercise should be intense enough to sweat and leave you feeling like you did something and should be about 4 to 5 times a week.



I don't understand how people consistently overlook exercise recommendations. It seems a lot of A explorers think less exercise when that is the opposite of recommended. That and Gatherers pretending to not understand what intense exercise happens to be.

Explorers that are BTA may be able to eat a lot of things on the A list, but the diamonds and beneficials are not the same, nor are the amounts.

I am not an expert, but the book guidelines for explorer work great for me.

Explorers should eat red meats that are lean in lesser amounts than a hunter or gatherer (like 3 times a week).  Fatty meats should be avoided.

Little to no dairy (even cultured yogurts).  

Plenty of plant based foods, recommended grains, recommended poultry, seafood, and avoid the common toxins like caffeine and alcohol or not use them on a regular basis.

Exercise should be intense enough to sweat and leave you feeling like you did something and should be about 4 to 5 times a week.

To me, the BTD and GTD are two different methods.  A explorers usually do not do well with a BTD A diet, for example.


They DON'T???!! It lowered my blood pressure after 40 days. Shoot, I know at least half of it works for me. It's the weight loss part that didn't work so well with the A diet. That's why I'm taking the offer to SWAMI from a friend on here.

That is awesome!!

I think the explorer diet is helpful for helping liver functioning.  For me at least, this is my weak area.  When the liver is slowed and overtaxed, it can spill over and manifest in different ways.  Like for me, i think my liver was strained from drinking beer, going out, smoking cigarettes, having taken various medications, and eating badly over the years.   So different foods from the BTD may be tough for an explorer liver.

This is confusing to me - why bother with the Explorer genotype at all, then.  It seems like Explorers should be broken up into different genotypes, no?
The compromise Explorer diet is much better for Explorer epigenetic superfamily-dominant people than any other one diet that could be done.

The publishing result was better for this choice, but it does require a constant effort on the part of people who know enough.  We must advocate Explorers to get Swami Xpress, or some other, more individualized solution.  For some Explorers a practitioner will produce much better results than Swami Xpress simply because of the extra attention to the personal circumstances.

No wonder Dr. D'  Adamo wanted an Explorer-escape door for his office!

I have to disagree with what i said earlier about yogurts that are probiotic.  I've eaten some the past few days and it seems to be beneficial for me.  

Yogurt is a black dot in the book, but it may be good for me since i am A.  It was cooling to my stomach and seemed to satisfy my hunger for awhile.

It is a bit confusing, since some of the foods would seem to be avoids in the BTD for an A, such as beef and lamb for instance.


No beef on my SWAMI, but I can have lamb. I only eat it a few times a month, though.

It is a plain avoid for me, and I'm not surprised. I am lactose intolerant.

Hilarious!! What a hoot!! Sometimes some Explorers wish they had an "escape door," too!! At first, it is almost like hanging on a ragged cliff with only one good option!! You either have to figure out some things for yourself or it ain't gonna work!! Thankfully, I was able to do that fairly quickly. But I must say this: Trehalose has made for a lot smoother climb!
