I think your assumption about the apples are right- that they are restricted because of their high fructose content. I have SWAMI and got them as a neutral, so maybe you do need to look into getting it.
SWAMI is totally internet based, so you can use any computer that has access to the internet. You have to sign into it EVERY time with a username and password to get access to your information and you 'log out', so it is safe to use with your library computer. Take notes on the most important foods for you and look at everything else as often as you can- you'll soon know 'your' foods off by heart without having to print off the lists. Updates happen automatically, so no need for discs- just one day you'll sign in and there is new stuff in your lists
Re. info needed for SWAMI- a lot of it is family history and your medical history. Your blood group obviously, secretor status would be good, but is not needed to get started. Your weight and height, body measurements which you can do yourself, ideally with the help of a friend- it's easier. Some less known stuff like Myer-Briggs personality which again is not necessary to get started- all this can be added in as you discover it about yourself. SWAMI is personal to YOU only but you can alter YOUR info any number of times, so you can try out different scenarios which sometimes help you understand more about a food- as you saw, some hunters have apples as superfood. So inputting a certain current health issue might give you or take away the same food! For exampe: rice is black dot for me until I put in that I have an inflammatory condition in which case it turns to superfood. So, when I have a flare-up I eat rice and when it's over I stop eating it. I am assuming that somehow eating the rice helps me to get rid of the inflammation (given that all other things stay the same). Hope that make sense to you
I don't actually know about carrots, sorry Got them as black dots myself- must research
The black olives are fermented- it's something in that process that makes them an avoid- I vaguely remember that info being in the ER4YT book- which I haven't got handy right now to check
I'll keep an eye on this thread, if nobody can answer this better for you I'll go rooting for my book later this week and get back to you, OK?
Be kind to everyone; be persistent with health! Ee Dan

Thankyou, YvonneB for your comments, yes good, I may look into swami next yr. Good, I like rice.... so will keep having it, plus amaranth and sprouted spelt bread. most carrots dont' taste great or like carrots used to, unless organic or baby carrot. I like sweet potatoe, pumpkin/squash, swede, beet, turnip, parsnip. regards.
