My understanding is that this is why the Swami diet works so well.  
If we were anywhere near 90 or 100% of a genotype than we would not be the individuals that we are.  We would be one of 6 cookie cutter types.  That's why Swami combines blood type & genotype to match what parts of you are more of the genotype you are & what parts of you need more of the blood type diet.
Does that sound right to you?

Sounds right.  I really wish there was a way to find out the other compositions, but I see that like many other things in life Swami doesn't work like 1+1=2

Gatherer

I thought I would play in my input. Since I am an O, the only genotypes I could be are Hunter, Explorer or Gatherer.

I have very faint prints, so Dr. D. said I am a hunter.

When I fill out the questionnaire and leave out the lines on fingerprints, I come out as an Explorer at 36%

When I input lines on fingerprints, I come out as a Hunter 36%.

When I override and enter Gatherer, I come out with the exact same foods as on my Hunter diet.  The Explorer diet has some more grains which I tend to avoid.

When I review the part where swami shows how it calculated (measurements, history etc), similar amount of matches on Explorer and Hunter on measurements and history, but the fingerprint lines obviously tip toward Hunter.  Gatherer, only 1 measurement and ENTJ come up as Gatherer tendencies.

So, like Dr. D. has said, my diet is a unique Jean diet.  

I am a Reactive with a combo Blood Type/Genotype diet and as far as I can see, more O sec type foods.

My husband is a 53% warrior but his world view is Receptor (lots of cancer in his family, esp siblings)  His inventory list of Warrior is much longer than any of mine (so he matches more of the Warrior characteristics) but his diet is very Warrior.

I think the percentages represent more of a continuum rather than a true percentage.  Although I always test for an ENTJ, I am not as strong an E as my uber Extroverted husband.  He thinks I am rather quiet, whereas most of the world sees me as Extroverted. Overall, however, I am extroverted.

I'm confused. Are we all supposed to be told a percentage? If so, where do I find it? My SWAMI just states that I'm a GT1 Hunter. (Blood Group O Rh Negative Secretor)

You will not see a percentage if you do either of these things:

Select an abbreviated diet report.

You override the calculated GenoType.

If you have not done either of these you should find the percentage in the: "What Makes You a GT1 Hunter" section of your diet report. A few pages in, but before the diet listings.

Thank you, C_sharp! I just went back to look & for some reason I had checked the abbreviated diet report. I changed it & found my percentage & a whole lot more to read about. I'm 50% Hunter with a receptive world view, which surprised me. I would have thought I'd have a reactive world view since I feel I'm a combo of Hunter & Explorer. I need to do some more reading to try to figure out why.

Quoted from Chanur

So, does that mean I take the booby-prize? Mine's a whopping whole 34% Nomad/GT6 once I finally got all the data entered.

But, even with that measly 34%, I am already noticing changes for the better. Especially since adding the extra red meats instead of just maxing out the poultry and fish and occasionally using lamb as a treat.


You and I are cut from the same cloth.  I hope I feel the changes for the better.  I realized mine is more like my BTD than anything. So I paid 70 bucks for it to tell me to go back to BTD.  Hehehehehhehehe.  We'll see how it goes!

ABNW: I'm sure that SWAMI will show differences, however small, that will make a big difference in how you feel & heal! Maybe the omission & addition of 1 or 2 foods will make a great difference.
GT2 had oatmeal as a SF, but after eating it again after so many years, it bothered me. Then SWAMI has it as an avoid!
I don't know if it was fingerprints(lines), nationality, or something else that did that! WOW!  So I'm glad I spent the 70 bucks!
I think you will be, too!

Really?  I slept really good last night and didn't hear about it.  It sure was windy this morning though, so it wouldn't be hard to beleive.

Yeah, my lists are different than a teacher and different than a Nomad, and more like an AB.  But it isn't just an AB diet.  There are a few differences which might make a big difference.  I don't know.  But I like the looks of it.  Personally, I always thought the Nomad diet was really good.  I mean, you should see my lists of Veggies and Fruits.  There isn't much I CAN'T have.  I really like the looks of the diet, I just hope my body likes the application!!!!!  I think it will though.

62% HUNTER.  

I can't believe the differnce SWAMI has made.  No more itching!  I had no idea I had a problem with nuts, they were SWAMI'd out of my diet.  My inflammation is just about nonexistent.  My CRP went from 1.3 to .2.  I couldn't be happier and I feel wonderful.
Thanks Dr. D!

Good %%% Jenny, it certainly tops the mark here!! So far!

I was waiting to get my final results to post but it is taking foreveeeeeer!!  Yes, I am still waiting for Path Lab to get their act together, but that is another thread.

So far, without the Lewis tests, MN and all the other secretory bood types thingis as well as the blood subtypes I have two percentages:

44% for non-secretor and 41% for secretor (GT3 Teacher).

Don't worry, I know it does not mean the same as passing an exam, it's just fun to talk about it. I can only guess that being so high in one Genotype makes me more like the
the generalized model than someone who has a report of mixed types. But it was still more than worthwhile to get the work done, as it has given me a hybridized BTD/GTD due to medical problems, and I now have Pecorino and Parmesan cheese, first time for 8 years.  Woo hoo!!!

Yes, they are on my list too, but I have not been able to get Pecorino at my Woolies shop yet. Yummy Havarty was on my Teacher list, but Swami made it a black dot   Also gained Roquefort and Feta.  Have not had Feta for ages. I bought some today.

Sorry to but in...I haven't had swami done... but glad you mentioned this!! Its very interesting to hear...I can just tolerate macadamias but that is the only nuts I can eat & then I think they still cause a bit of a problem...
I didn't have any at all last week as I had run out & couldn't get into town...& now that I think about it I think I was doing better Might go off them again & see if things improve
Re Pathlab... &  your comment Christina: "I was waiting to get my final results to post but it is taking foreveeeeeer!!  Yes, I am still waiting for Path Lab to get their act together" ...
My "test"  got "lost" on its way to Pathlab... Well somewhere between Aus Post & PL...
