Welcome to the forum, fellow Aussie and Lewis double negative!  

Glad you have been doing so well on the BTD/GTD for so long! Swami won't have made a mistake BUT it cannot take into account every nuance of your bio-individuality. Hence, you may find that one or two of the beneficial or neutral foods do not sit well with you. Your body will tell you if that is the case. Just add in one food at a time and see how it goes. If it gives you trouble, drop it and try another one.

Quoted from 33378
Long time follower and devotee.  Lactose intolerant from birth and gluten intolerant (white lines on fingerprints). I eliminated wheat almost one hundred percent, because I have major mucus issues.   I started with the blood type diet (I have ALL the books), then went with the genotype diet as soon as that came out and yes it was better for me.  Just recently I purchased Swami and entered all my details - except the personality test.  
I was a little freaked out by the results, as I already knew I was an Explorer and have been following the diet from the book for Explorers.  
Swami advises that I can now have parmesan and romano type cheeses, Soy products - pretty much everything in the range and chicken egg yolk.  
I have not had any of these foods since I started on the genotype diet - except for chicken eggs which I would have occasionally.  I was having natural yoghurt, but it's a "no go" without a black dot.  I would love to have parmesan & romano cheeses, but I am paralysed with fear, at the thought of eating them in case this is an error.  
I'm really just wanting confirmation that these additions are not an error?

Other statistics:  Lewis typing: double negative a-b-, NN, GT4 Explorer 57%.


The white lines are probably why you get the aged hard cheeses (butyrate and caprylate).

The "Book" Explorer diet is a catch-all of sorts in that it has to handle all four blood groups, therefore the SWAMI is well advised for those who fall into that category to better individualize your diet experience.

since you do have a swami, why not run it once as an A1 and then again as an A2 and see if there are any changes.....?

make sure you let swami compute your genotype for you, everytime you rerun it, ok?

I've been following SWAMI since 2011 - 64% Nomad.

I eliminated GERD, environmental allergies, asthma, and more (roughly 10 medications - all prescription, just to live "pseudo-comfortably."

My only caveat is that I am not dropping pounds and I still have deep white lines in my fingerprints.

I am gluten intolerant (tested and confirmed) and probably have celiac (haven't done the biopsy - don't like the idea of cutting and creating more problems.) I do wish there were a part on SWAMI that included gluten intolerance (even though I know what contains it) and I am so so so frustrated I am not losing weight!

Nomad with Celiac. Just say, "No" to gluten. White lines, no more!

In the SWAMI Xpress version of the software, the software is designed to identify people that likely would have problems with gluten and lower the rating of foods that contain gluten.

In the SWAMI GenoType version of the software (use by practitioners), you can indicate that SWAMI should deemphasize any food that contains gluten.

Melisa,
I understand the frustration of not losing weight, but your body knows what is the highest priority when it comes to what needs to heal first.  Be patient with the body and allow it to heal...  You will be rewarded well...
