Quoted from ABJoe

What computer you have doesn't really matter, as long as you can access the Internet, as SWAMI "runs" on Dr. D's computer.  You just need the web browser to interface with it...

I do understand about the price of admission, however, it'll be the best $70 you've spent in a long time...


So true, from this Explorer. It made all the difference.

it is prooven that epigenetically you won't loose any weight if some of your genes are
"off-line"....you can do all you want...sports until you'll japs off ...eating low fat or low carb diets.. you will experience... n o t h i n g ... but literally nothing will work!!! Until you are going to *put on* your genetic make up properly... and I also was a bit   asking myselve  about Swami... until I realized.. yep so it is... and gave a try... and today I don't regret it at all ...


btw.. I guess Dr. D is an NT as well... so far our tendencies to be clear in our approaches and speech is nothing but normal.... NF's always are sooooo f-sidings ... feelings... nothing but feelings ... jaaauuulll...

btw... please remember..... we aren't thaaat special ....

Oh - did not know that. But I bet a lot of people prefer the Dr.-adjusted one. Don't they?

There are benefits both ways...  
The practitioner is sure that all of the measurements are correct, but you have to go back to the practitioner to have any adjustments made.

With the Xpress version, you have to make sure the measurements are correct, but you can make adjustments as you heal, etc. without the practitioner.

We watched the video to make sure the measurements were correct...

Yeah. That's exactly why NT's wander over to the NJF forums to stay and learn how to get more in touch with their emotions. We're a very comforting group once we let them in. In fact, so comfortable and accepting, many of the "other types" just hang around our forum ad infinitum, and feel like they need to stay and run the place, for some odd reason. Check it out!

Maybe you need to stay over there with the rest of those "pee-pull!" You sounded everything but "comforted" in your post on the site.

Use your common sense & count calories, carbs etc- whatever you need to do to get & stay on track.  I have never eaten all the portions in the book because duh I'm 5'1" & need fewer calories.  I tailored the diet to my activity level which has increased so I can eat more now but I still don't eat a ton of carbs daily- doesn't work for personally & not in keeping with original O info which says Os don't do well on starches.  You really will need to figure it out yourself; I agree times are hard but there  is a ton of weight loss info online, maybe you need to do some additional research.

I have to disagree on the SWAMI. I don't have weight issues myself but have arthritis. As soon as I started SWAMI my symptoms came back (mildly, but that is how it starts and I am not going back to where I was). I do the arthritis BTD (which is pretty close to an elimination diet) and that works best. It's still not perfect but I like having structure and can weed out what isn't working for me and have done so. Does the BTD work for you at all? I don't have much support from doctors because in Canada it is standarized care. Being in the US, can you get help from your doctor regarding your weight, as far as diet goes? I do feel for you as it's frustrating to be stuck or regress. It's a huge undertaking if nothing seems to be working for you. I tried a couple of arthritis programs and really, kind of had to adopt my own thing working with naturopaths and my own research. Good luck.

I think this was SWAMI kicking some detox / healing into the mix...  I have been continuously healing since I started BTD.  Each time I move to a more specialized diet, the healing has gotten more intense for a period of time...

I'm saying this not to persuade you to continue SWAMI right now, just offering suggestion as to what might be happening...

What you say is certainly true for me, ABJoe. Every time I have gotten to a "comfort zone," I know it is time to gear down more on my diet. Right away, it is like stirring up a hornet's nest!! It isn't long before there is indisputable proof that it has worked, though, because I feel even better than ever before!

You could always read The Zone, The Warrior Diet, Fast 5 etc- there are so many ways to portion your meals in order to lose weight.  If you aren't able to manage your food issues intuitively this is probably your next step though it isn't what's preached on this board I know.  In the meantime you may also want to use some Bach essences to stabilize your emotions.  You will get the answers about what & how to eat.

I think a good number of us have issues with certain foods on our SWAMI diets. I know I do, but I simply work around them. Grapefruit is my love/hate fruit. I love it, but hate what it does to me. If I eat one about once a month, I don't have a problem. It used to make my joints hurt but not anymore. The problem is the pain I get in my stomach.

Pineapple used to do the same thing to me but now I can eat it every single day for weeks (maybe all the time!) and have no problem with it! I love pineapple!

Lamb is a super food for me, but I don't feel my best if I eat it more than a few times a month. It just seems too "heavy" after I've eaten it a time or two in a week. But I do enjoy it very much around four times a month.

However, I do realize that some people have issues with foods that are harder to identify than mine are.

Dr D doesn't reccomend low-carbing for most A's..


I've tried low carb and low carb vegetarian and low carb semi vegetarian. I had struggled and had no energy and had much indigestion... Yes. Dr.D  is right.
I'm back to being totally vegetarian. My stomach never felt better.

Glad you are feeling so much better Mayflower... I guess it is about working out what our individual bodies do best on

Interesting Sahara that you mention The Zone... I just picked it up yesterday to peruse, simply out of interest/curiosity...

Also Possum, there are a lot of books at the library you can check out. I am all about gathering information and playing around to perfect my lifestyle. It's coming along and it has taken me a good year to get to where I am. For me, it's pretty good - with a lot of discipline but it is what I have to do. I tried many different programs but my body just didn't respond and I have to keep my foods to a minimum. It's just the way it is for me right now. The right diet for me shows up in days in my body just like the wrong foods show up within hours in my body. Good luck to you.
