Quoted from Lizzie
I have no health issues at the moment but I can do with losing about 14 pounds and am now wondering whether swami is going to do that for me. I've been avoiding the avoids and black dots (apart from potato, baked beans and mayo at the weekend) and I'm still gaining weight. Do I need to lose the weight some other way and then go back to swami to stay healthy?


This could be why u are not losing weight. Avoid these for @ least 2 weeks & see what happens.

BTD and GTD are much more personalized than any other "diet book" out there, but nothing is as personalized as SWAMI. Forget the quiz- once you have a SWAMI, it blends the best of GTD and BTD for the perfect "you diet."

If you're not doing well on your SWAMI diet, then it's due to one of three things;

1) You're not actually following SWAMI carefully. A few "avoid" meals every month can inhibit weight loss or healing from a chronic problem. Ignoring portion size and frequency recomendations and/or exercise recomendations will inhibit weight loss.

2) You didn't put accurate information into SWAMI. It won't compute the right diet if it's not "fed" correct information. Recheck the measurements you inputted into SWAMI to make sure they're accurate. Double-check that you didn't tick the wrong boxes anywhere.

3) You have additional health/nutrition concerns that go beyond SWAMI. Food allergies, fructose intolerance, and celiac disease are all examples of conditions that require avoiding a whole class of foods (your specific allergens, high-fructose foods, or gluten-containing grains) even if some of those foods are rated neutral or better for you on SWAMI. Continue to  follow your SWAMI, but exclude those foods that are problematic for you and substitute different foods from the same category (such as quinoa instead of rye for the Celiac.)

Thank you so much C-Sharp! I got it!
Thanks, Lola and Artspooner.
...I took it and it said Blood type diet was best for me!?! I need to sit and compare the type A diet and my swami because I have been on the teacher diet for so long. I know swami knows best but I think I need to re run it and uncheck the chemical sensitivities.

SWAMI will be more personalized than either the BTD or Genotype book diet.  IMO, SWAMI will always be a better fit.

I agree, Joe.
If I lived closer to Dr. D's clinic I would save the funds to have a professional SWAMI done.
I really need to take the time and do some more reading and then rerun my Swami.

I have tried the BTD, GTD and paid for 2 swami's. The BTD has been the best for me. Could it be possible that new discoveries are not in the swami or that some of us are just different? I have the backwards radial fingerprint on my pinky finger, not the index finger as stated. All of my explorer friends have them on their index finger. That is just one example.

I have and like my swami however I definately gravitate to BT foods as my staples. I wouldn't give my swami up because it has many more food values. However, some of the new swami foods, eaten too often or in the portion recommendations do pose digestive problems for me. When I first got it I was excited for all the new foods but after incorporating them I started having a few issues. I like knowing the values of the new foods but again, i still gravitate to BT staples. Not sure if that helps. Recap: better with BT but like to know more food values and do use them. Alot of the BT values that were nuetral that I ate now are sf or diamond on swmai. I like that as well

the express will show any updates done to the program, whenever those become available......a meal planner is on the making, so stay tuned

Lola, I took that quiz and it came up nearly completely to follow the genotype diet. Now, I was Teacher on genotype and explorer on swami. What do I follow now then from genotype book: teacher or explorer??

If you've done the SWAMI, Lizzie, you follow the food list for your SWAMI, not the Genotype book.

swami has labeled you explorer, and you follow YOUR personalized explorer diet, NOT the explorer diet in the book, which is a basic one size fit all explorers, if you get my meaning

Lola, I paid extra money for the swami in Tennessee. It arrived a few weeks later in a nice folder. The 2nd swami was an express. So yes, I paid for two swami's. The "one shoe fits all explorer" made me incredibly ill and the explorer supplements make me nauseous. Forgot which specific ones. It's been a while. I'm not complaining though. The BTD has turned my life around and I am grateful everyday that I found it.
