Welcome to nonniehood Joyfulheart.  It's great to know, and I'm sure when you start following the diet you'll be surprised how healthy you'll feel.  Amazing!

Does that make you an Explorer now?  I suspected you were because of your big reactions to certain dairy types.  I wonder if SWAMI matches those reactions you had?

Thankies   - I let SWAMI determine my GT and I have a strong compliance to the Teacher GT (40%).  And like I said, the SWAM gave me more food choices, including cheeses - mostly an increase in black dot foods that I can eventually work into my diet as I get stronger.  

I am giving myself 3 months as directed, avoiding all avoids!  So I won't be enjoying Jack cheese (which has never given me a noticeable problem) until July.

I feel I have a leg up on my digestive health because I've been watching what I eat for so long - but I do remember the days when I was completely lost, eating everything and anything I wanted - and suffering for it.  Boundaries are good!

When I find a way to eat that is right for me, I feel loved by Mother Nature Herself!

I'm loving my Diet Diary - it's so helpful.  And the almond milk I made last night is JUST the BEST!  Next I'm going to tackle non-wheat bread.  I've never baked with yeast before but I'm feeling up for the challenge.  I wish I knew what spelt tasted like.  Will have to experiment first before I invest in my flours.  I will definitely be using the almond flour I have left over from making my milk this week!  (Yay for taking new steps in eco-friendly living!)

Hi Joyfulheart,

Homemade almond milk sounds great!  If you like nuts you'll like the nutty taste of spelt, what a treat ahead of you.  Making bread is so satisfying!

I keep a diary too mainly to track IBS and what causes it.  It helps the memory and keeps you on the right diet path.  Having to write down you ate an avoid is like an extra kick from your conscience.   Also handy to look back and figure out how you are improving

I am very surprised that I am a non-secretor and I just found out today.  Still in shock actually.  But then I started reading about nonnies and being more sensitive to certain foods and I can only attest to that.  Basically, I feel like a new door was opened and it did get me off track a little.

I never did get with the program to get my secretor status.  I'm pretty sure I'm a secretor though.

I guessed correctly. Besides having too many "typical nonnie reactions" I did rather poorly on a few "O secretor neutrals, O nonnie avoids" such as spelt and oats.

I'm enjoying my coconut oil, avocadoes, and lentils. Plus, on SWAMI, I get a few cheeses (such as quark- yummy!) that were avoids on both the BTD for O nonnies and the secretor version of my SWAMI.

Look at the positives: you have some new foods to enjoy you thought were avoids on BTD. Most importantly, you know more about your body now and can properly nourish yourself and gain true healing.

I was totally shocked to learn that I was a non-secretor. Never suspected it at all.

Hmmm I think I guessed correctly too, although still plagued by doubt re the delay & muckup by testing company...??!
I do poorly on the secretor foods Ruthie mentioned above, but do just as poorly on the non secretor foods mentioned as well... So what positives?? The more that I think about it, the more I am convinced I am an Explorer, but with way too many of the conflicting restrictions of a Gatherer
I am in essence, caught in no man's land
