Oh, my goodness! I drove to The Store in Connecticut, got my SwamiXpress, and it says I'm an Explorer! Interestingly, alot of my favorite foods have come back, stuff I'm not crazy about has left... I've "been" a Gatherer for 1 1/2 yrs, now, and this week marks a new beginning. Early in the GTD days, I expected to turn out to be an Explorer but didn't by the book. Swami got in there with its higher capabilities, retyped me and gave me a hybridized diet with alot of stuff I can eat. I haven't finished reading the printout yet, but this is the most excitement I've had with the BTD in quite a while! Wow, dudes.
Love to all, I know I've not been around much lately....hoping to return to the forums soon. Miss you all.

Hi, OSuzanna, great 2CU!!!! I theorize that, if one diet looks like it has a bunch of stuff you don't think is for you in it, and another has a bunch of stuff that you love, and it is sort of a gray area which diet is YOUR genotype, it is going to be the one that you gravitate towards. I thought I was an Explorer for a few terrifying minutes, twice, all due to user error in measuring finger lengths. What a DRAMA! But anyway, even when I was erroneously SURE that I was an Explorer, I thought, no, this can't be right. Spelt is a superfood. This is wrong. Nooooooooooooooooooo!
Well, turns out I am a Gatherer afterall, and all the stuff on that diet, when I first drank it in via reading the food lists, was stuff that made me feel like dancing in the streets. It was like, oh, well this is my BTD only with all the foods back in that I always thought should always be back in. Yay!!!
Congrats on Explorerdom, especially since it instinctively feels right, as the right type does!
Now...about your coffee thing: have you switched to kukicha (twig) tea yet? I now have not one but TWO--count 'em, two--excellent brands to steer you towards: Haiku kukicha and Eden Organic kukicha! You have no excuse not to kukicha, with all these great brands swirliing about out here!
OSuzanna on the Explorer diet and coffee free! This is gonna be BIG, I tells ya!
