I am hunting...

I have more body traits of the Gatherer, but the autoimmune issues (gluten intolerance falls into the autoimmune realm, too) put me into Hunter territory.

The autoimmune issues are 'O' issues not only Hunter. So the Gatherer diet will take that into account.

I would also suggest ARA6 (Dr.D supplement, available on this website) as it is immunesystem regulating. As is drinking Rooibosh tea- check if you are allowed those!

I have Colitis which is also an autoimmune thingy, so I know where you are coming from  

There are quite a number of anti-inflammatory foods you could increase if you are allowed and if they agree with you.
They have been mentioned lots of times on other threads, but by the time I or you find them...
here they are again:

- Tumeric/ Kurcuma
- Omega 3 oil as in fish, flax/linseed, green lipped mussel extract
- curry (check all ingredients!)
- cayenne pepper/ chili
- garlic
- ginger

I am sure I am forgetting some, maybe the others will chime in here, please?

Let us know, how you get on

What about your measurements?

Are index fingers longer than ring fingers on both hands?
Are lower leg measurement shorter then upper leg measurement?
Is upper body longer then legs & feet?

If yes to all, should be a gatherer G2

Mrs. T O, I'm 39 and live in Southern California.

Geminisue, my index fingers are longer than ring fingers on both hands. Lower leg is equal to upper and torso longer than legs.

YvonneB, thank you for the reminder! Yes, I remember the description for O's in general having a tendency for autoimmune problems. I guess I was focusing too much on the specifics between Hunter and Gatherer. I've been trying to incorporate a lot more anti-inflammatory foods in my diet. It's certainly seems like slow going but I have to remind myself that getting to this point of having problems and finding out that I had them was a slow process, too.

According to the chart in the back of the book, you're a Gatherer. In your specific case, secretor status doesn't make a difference (your measurements on an O- male would be Gatherer for secretor or Explorer for non-secretor.)

So, if you're going to follow one of the diets from the book, Gatherer is the one to follow.

If you invest in a SWAMI, it's possible that the "strength testing" information would lean you towards a "Hunter" genotype label, but the actual food list would likely vary quite a bit from what's in the book.
