I would hate to think I change genotypes because things change.. is that how this all works...??? that feels weird to me.


At the risk of being redundant, remember that with the software flexibility, you are much less wed to the strictures of the one in six GenoTypes that are in the book. As you body changes, the focus of the therapeutics may change as well (especially if there are only slight distinctions between one GenoType and another).

Thus if you are a GT1 because of white lines and they recede and you do indeed type out later on as an Explorer, the focus of your therapeutic efforts will shift from gut rehabilitation to liver and immune detoxification.

Since that type of slight difference will prompt SWAMI to hybridize GTD and BTD values, you will really be generating a type O/ secretor/ non-secretor with either gut rehab overtones (Hunter) or detox overtones (Explorer).

Change is what the entire diet is about, let's not be scared by it.

Excellent Dr. D.  That puts my mind at ease and makes total sense. Thank you.  As you know, our minds can go off on tangents with the sort of 'unknown's.'

Well just for fun.. I went in and changed mine to no white lines.  

Still a Hunter.

It seems I'm stuck knawing meat off bones and (in this generation), metaphorically heading off into the wild lands with my bow and arrow hunting forever!  AND.. I love it!!!

Quoted from Dr. D
The lower the first principal component, the more SWAMI is going to weave in BTD/secretor values over GenoType.


Ah, that is very interesting and makes perfect sense. (It's also great to see some of my old A favourites back! )

41% Explorer here  

I love my new food list! So many favorites are back. I'm a happy camper.  


I just added my head measurments and that bumped me up to 42% Explorer.

We went out and bought a new printer last night so I could print it all out.

That's my sense of it... I think  I'm an Explorer with celiac/crohn's, so my inflammation is more crucial to treat than toxicity, even though I have both.  But, it might be a while until my lines clear up... I have about 25 of them... so, I'll settle into Hunter (or follow LR4YT) and be happy that I can eat peaches!

I know this isn't supposed to be a competition... but I can't help but think, "I win!" lol

"Your results: 55% of your epigenetic variation is encapsulated in the GT1 Hunter profile."

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.

Type AB's First PC is considered strong at 35%. Remember, they are the only blood group with four GT options.

I think the rest is spreaded in the other possible GTs of your data, so it can be less relevant for you, may be I got it !

Very close MG. The rest is spread over the:

1. The other GenoTypes
2. Things that don't apply (in this combination) to any GenoType

Isa the percentage is not how much 'you' are 'it'.

The percentage is a measure of how much 'it' is 'you.'

Viva la complexity!

The percentage is a measure of how much 'it' is 'you.'

Color me fascinated by this entire thread.  And intrigued.  Once I get up on the net at home, I'll have to get SWAMI, although the G2 diet is working fabulously for me.  Still, once one is bitten by an interest in, and passion for, the BTD/GTD theories, one's curiousity and interest in ever-refining one's diet towards the ideal personalized fuel for one's unique-as-a-snowflake self can never be fully sated.

So, I'll have to at least find out what SWAMI has to tell me.  But I might just stick to the G2 plan anyway.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it!  Then again, maybe SWAMI will tell me something interesting regarding sunflower seeds or some other food that I know has been wrongly maligned for me as an individual.  I'm fascinated and tantalized to learn what SWAMI will deem fab and not-so-fab for me.

Meanwhile, I'm livin' la vida G2 and lovin' it.

PT, I was doing really well on the Hunter diet, but I did the SWAMI out of curiosity.  Not only did it confirm my Hunter status, but it tweaked the diet giving me lots more options, and even confirmed that things I somehow knew were OK or even good for me actually were, like carrots.  All I really lost was kelp and believe me I can live without that
