Quoted from Chloe

I am 5'3 1/2" tall and weigh about 140 right now...I could probably lose a few pounds but but I noticed that in the past week, just following the Teacher's diet instead of the Warrior diet, I have lost a few pounds.  When I entered my SWAMI information, I was 143...so that's 3 pounds lost in a week.

Hey that's great  Chloe!    Looks like the Teacher diet is working for ya!

It would be the same as the nuts/seeds qty.

The only unlimited quantity items are those that are superfoods with diamonds regardless of the category/section they belong in.


Unfortunately, ghee is not a diamond food on my dairy list...a few cheese are.  I think this is the problem for me.  I'd be better off without so many cheeses and getting to eat as much ghee as I needed.

Only problem is that I'd have to have checked off I was lactose intolerant and
at this moment, that spot is locked and can't be changed.

I'm clueless about having had 5 different options for SWAMI input data. Where
would I have had an opportunity to enter this information?  Can you please tell
me where this option is located?  I don't remember ever noticing this.


It's in your SWAMI input data section. To access it do this:

1) Log into SWAMI.
2) Click on the "Edit Your SWAMI Profile" tab at the top.
3) Scroll down to Section 2 (Blood Groups & Related Choices).
4) Find the row titled "Category Portion Size and Frequency" - it's toward the bottom of the section.
5) Click on the corresponding drop-down to select your portions.
6) Go to the bottom of the page.
7) In the last section (it's after the fingerprint pattern section), select the 2nd choice "Save and Prepare to Print Diet Report".
8 ) Click "Save SWAMI Profile and Continue".
9) The new proportions you choose should appear in your new report.

Thanks, I originally told SWAMI to compute best...but what option do you think
I should change it to now?  What did you ask it to do for you?

Thanks...

Well of course, I wasn't a Warrior and eating their diet.  I was also eating more
protein than I am now.  And more fat than I am now..although I'm eating the
nuts I'm supposed to eat, I'm measuring out portions because they're limited
to 1/4 cup per day.  You should see me squish them down with effort into that
measuring cup, hoping to squeeze in one more nut...!

More vegetables now.   I am consciously eating my 3 portions of fruit per day.

And although my grain category isn't very much, I'm not walking around hungry.

Actually, I take that back....I see that many of my nuts are diamonds...so no
more measuring.  Life is good

Either you are not understanding or something is wrong with your report/printout.

Ghee should not be in your Dairy section. It belongs in the Fats and Oils section. Re-check your dairy listings (not the portions section - ignore what it might say about ghee and butter in the portions section of dairy - Dr. D. said it does not belong there). You should not find ghee listed in any of the columns there (superfood, neutral, or avoid).

Next, check in your Fats and Oils section. That is where your ghee should be listed. Follow those portions except for foods listed as diamonds.

If ghee is not a diamond in the Fats and Oils section for you, then perhaps you need to consider the possibility that there may be other issues that need to be addressed first that you are not aware of or that some other food(s) would address better than the ghee.

I did not say that you should change it. I was only telling you how to do it if you felt you should.

What I did does not matter because you and your body are not me. We are different. You need to consider yourself on this matter, not me.

If you truly need to change a locked category, you can contact NAP customer service and request they unlock it for you.

Personally, I would not advise you do this, since from what I have been reading you saying it sounds as if cheese and dairy, in general, do not set very well with your system. I would suggest you give the diet a try as it's currently written. After all, SWAMI is meant to make changes.

I'm not making myself clear.

First of all, ghee is presently located in my dairy section.  Not in oils.

And I checked off I was not lactose intolerant.  I would like to change it to say I am.

I don't want to change SWAMI, but I've got a bunch of diamond cheese and they
don't seem to feel right in my body.

I was thinking if SWAMI thought I was lactose intolerant, I'd be getting ghee as
a diamond. I think I need ghee more than cheese.

You need to report your ghee being in the dairy section on the bug thread if you haven't already done so.

My apologies about mis-reading your lactose intolerance. Call or e-mail NAP's customer service and explain to them, like you did in the bug thread, that you have been told you are casein intolerant and so you feel that you need it changed.

Yes, I would think it would diminish your cheese choices, but as to whether or not it would have any effect on your ghee at all or not, I have no idea. I can see where it might, but I can also see where it might not. You'd just have to try it and find out.

I noticed you have already reported the ghee being in your dairy section on the bug thread.

If I were you, I'd go back over to that thread and edit what you said so that it includes the cut and paste you just posted on this thread.

With the cut'n'paste Dr. D. can see what it's doing. I think he might find the fact that it's displaying those numbers after the items especially helpful. The more info. he has the faster he can find what's wrong and correct it for you.

Tea Rose just informed me that ghee belongs in dairy....OMG....difficult to keep
noticing everything that changes so quickly, right?  

Thanks for trying so much to help me!

Thanks to Tea Rose for straightening it out for both of us

Thanks to you, Chloe, for not being mad at me for accidentally giving you the wrong information. That had to have been very frustrating for you.

Hopefully, NAP will get your lactose intolerance part straightened out very soon for you.

I don't get mad very easily unless I'm eating foods that are so wrong for me,
they make me feel horribly irritable.

Now if you had been chatting with me while I was mistakenly on the
Warrior diet.... I might have been rrrrreally rrrrreally mad!

That answers a big question for me.  I have a diamond superfood with 0 portions per week.

That said.... can I then increase my diamond superfood kefir back up from 4 oz 3 times weekly to 8 oz daily?


It is what it is so I'm dealing with it.
