Quoted from DoS
When I change level of activity from sedentary to anything all the way up to athlete I get the same portion sizes for everything.


Sometimes that will occur in people especially those who are extremely thin or obese.

Not obese.. maybe a bit overweight. It's gonna try to slim you down regardless of your activity level.

Under Teacher: Oils. It explains what Ghee is and what not. However Ghee is not on the Beneficial, Neutral, or Avoid list.

Thanks. Based on other suggestions I moved it to dairy. Now I'll have to move the description!

I just noticed something which might be a bug. When I run SWAMI without ticking any of the boxes in the "Your Health History" category, both spelt and kamut are avoids. When I tick the allergy box and re-run SWAMI, spelt is suddenly a black dot avoid. When I also tick the skin and bowel disease boxes, spelt is suddenly neutral and kamut a black dot avoid. Spelt and kamut seem to get less problematic the more diseases I have. That can't be right, no?

I was playing around with these settings because I wanted see what my diet would look like if I hadn't had any diseases and to my astonishment it was more restrictive than before.

Well, they can be 'less problematic' in relation to the other possible choices. However, let me take a look..

If the SWAMI is detecting that the person is overweight, and the person loses all the weight, is the SWAMI re-done again to get different foods, frequency and portions sizes?

Making this suggestion here in the hopes that Dr. D. will respond:

Is it possible for the SWAMI access code to be sent to the user by email upon purchase, so he/she can run the program right away rather than waiting for the card to arrive by regular mail?

If the program is Internet-access, the code could be as well.

frequency values are given according to weight and activity level of the person.....also waist to hip ratios etc come into play for swami to compute the right diet.....so I guess those values will change if
inputting a considerable weight loss and lower waist to hip ratios and such.

Pollock not listed in Mrs. T O+ SWAMI. Listed for other people.

Quoted from Mrs T O+
Pollack wasn't listed on the SWAMI. I know it is an avoid for O & B; neutral for AB; & beneficial for A.  Is it under a different name?  I know its a cheap fish, but I liked it & haven't had it for years. Is there any chance it may be OK for me? [Maybe I won't be able to find it in the stores anyway!] Thanks!



MIfHI                            I follow a SWAMI diet.

I wasn't thinking of myself so much as the millions of users to come. It's a natural thing for me to think of ways to change and improve things. I've found, of course, that sometimes others don't agree with my suggestions, but more often they do.

I realized this behaviour I reported has probably something to do with the fact that I have white lines in my finger prints. When I add diseases, SWAMI seems to ignore the white lines and concentrate on the diseases. So it seems, the old programmer adage "It's not a bug, it's a feature!" applies here

There is an upper limit on the number of food de-emphasis/ emphasis operations. This is more evident in the SWAMI GenoType version (where the user actually can tweak these, versus Xpress where it is done automatically) since if you go much beyond five or six elements (potassium, lectins, gluten, overgrowth) you wind up marching the food value one way, only to later march it back the other (producing in essence no real change)

On page 36 of 43 of my SWAMI, paragraph 7, line 3 (not counting headings), it says:

"a

I think it's supposed to say

My job is proofreading. I love to help perfect things, but feel free to ignore them if you think they are nitpicky:  

These are from my SWAMI pages:

Page 37, paragraph 8, line one:

On the other hand, Africans virtually lack it; the trait is completely absent ? Ghanaians

the word "is" might do well after "absent"


On page 39, paragraph 9, line one, I don't grasp what this is trying to say; is it a possible typo?:

it seems to turns sleepy thrifty genes

And paragraph 40:

all the while this is going one
