OK, it arrived!!  After all this time and now I have to wait some more to get my secretor status.
In the meantime I'll be playing with it and going with the majority of the population, I will use secretor value.

Both my parents are descendants of immigrants from Italy and Spain, so I am ticking 'Southern European' for ethnicicity.  OK?

Hi Cristina, sounds exciting. I am curious to know what % of teacher the SwamiXpress will accord to you, and what major changes in your regular teacher diet will it make. Looking forward to know the results. I am as eager as you are!

It looks like swami is making me a Teacher, secretor or non, I tried them both.  But I did not get a chance to check the food plans/cookbook because Swami has been optimized to use Mozilla and I am using Explorer.  So here I logoff to download Mozilla and get back into swami.

Jenny,

I have not done SwamiXpress as yet and do not have plans to do it in the near future too. Since all those who are doing it are reporting % (Jumari? just did it too) without fail. Possibly, some of our friends can tell you how to see it?

Jenny,
You will find the percentage on your report, a couple of screens down where is talking about your Genotype under RESULTs section.  In one of my reports it is in the 4th page.

Yes, I have printed 2 reports, one for secretor and the other one non-secretor.

When choosing secretor status I get a 45% (Good Association) with the GT3 Teacher Genotype.

When I choose non-secretor I get 41% (again good association) with the GT3 Teacher Genotype.

I have not have time to digest the lot yet, but a quick skim through the reports indicates that the diet choices have expanded and I have more options than the GT book (except for dairy).

AT first impression, if I were to choose one, I will keep the nonnie diet plan, I get tomatos ( no ketchup or tomato juice), I get peaches, strawberries, apples, lots of juices and red wine.  All diamonds.

In the dairy department I gain Feta and lost to the Black Dot category most of the GTD cheeses in both reports. No Neutral in the non-secretor report while I gained Goat milk in the secretor report under neutrals.

No Superfood or Neutral meats for secretor, but I have 3 choices with a diamond in the non-secretor.

Because by the time they send me the saliva test kit, perform the test, send the specimen and get results back it may take at least a couple of weeks, I will be compiling a 'common' ground list of items to get me through.

My portion sizes are small in the range of 'smaller than the palm of my hand' and quater cups or single tbsps per week!!!  I will check the forum first to see if there are comments or answers regarding my queries, otherwise I will keep on posting them here.

So we have one more case of confirmed "philanthropist" among us! The portion sizes recommended are possibly linked to your weight loss target? May be the sizes go up once you are around the expected weight?

I thought all of my 1/4-cup and Tbsp foods were "Weekly" but it turned out some of them are "Daily". Big sigh of relief.

My First Swami breakfast!!

warm lemon water 1st thing in the morning. (missed the walk today, got up at 6:00am, record late time for me!!  And I went to bed at 9:30pm last night.  Is my body using more hours to sleep now? Walked up as usual feeling great. Now back to the breaky:

Yogi berries (SF), currants (SF) (demoted to BlackDots thanks to C_Sharp advice below), some plain yogurt (D), 1 small sliced kiwi  fruit (D), a few sliced strawberries (SF).  Sprinkled Chia and pumpkin seeds (both neutrals but love to have them back good vitamins contributions), and flaxseeds (D).

2 Diamonds+ 3 SuperFoods + 3 Neutrals + (1 Hidden Black Dot)= One plateful of yummy Swami medicine taken under a beautiful sun for a boost of hormones!!

Lets talk portions:
I have created a printout of Swami suggested portions for each category.  I have stuck this to the fridge and pantry door, so they are on my face, grabbing my attention when I most need it.

But, I do not walk around with a measuring cup and a spoon in my hand. A little bit more of this, a little bit less of that, knowing that I am being honest, truthful and closest to the diet as possible, using the right positive energy when putting food in my plate or glass, with the feeling of doing the right thing and with my eye on the writings on the wall and fridge, is more important to me.  I know it is what keeps me going ...

I weight myself today and I am proud to annouce that I have been demoted to the very healthy 87s: 87.5kg.  That may sound like a lot to some, particularly when I am only 1.56m, but looking behind an unhealthy over 95kg a few weeks ago, this is big!! very big!! I owe it all to Dr D's GTD system, Teacher GT.  It has been an easy, effortlessly ride.

I am expecting nothing less from SwamiXpress and today marks the beginning of it.

(Although I missed the walk this morning, I will be compensating with some more reboundings later on.)

You may already be aware of this, but just in case you were not. The currants referred to in the blood type diet and GenoType (and I presume SWAMI as well) do not refer to small raisins.

Instead they are small red, black, or white berries similar to gooseberries.

Typebase explains the difference between currants which are small dried grapes and the berries:

My stragegy to fight hunger cravings:

Well, doing what Dr D and many wise people out there have been telling us for ages: Use our grinding devices before we send the fuel down the digestive ride.

Last night we had steamed brown rice (cooked on rice cooker) and tossed on an iron pot with some dry curry, sage (D), sea salt and broccoli and enough water to make it nice and saucy (very tasty). We accompanied this with grilled portobello mushrooms filled with tamari sause, minced onion and garlic. A few leaves of lettuce and grated Romano cheese completed the dish.
I served a plate for myself and a plate for DH.  We sat down to enjoy our meal.  I like to enjoy my meal, eat slowly and chew it, chew it, chew it before I take my next mouthful.  Our servings were generous, fill my plate and I tend to give hubby a bit bigger serving, thinking his male constitution can handle it better.  Well, before I had a chance to finish my serving, DH finish his first plate, had time to get up and munch on something else in the kitchen while he dish his second serve, sat down and finish his second serve, a few minutes before a finished my first serve.

The interesting thing is that, I could hardly finish my serving.  I completed the meal feeling very satisfied and did not need to eat anything else for the rest of the night.  Needles to say, within the hour, DH was munching on Apples, kiwis, nuts, flaxseed bread ...

I should be happy though, at least he is now eating his teacher food, since it is all he can find at home now ... He is starting to get the message now, at least he is asking if this is OK or not to eat ...

I used to behave like that, living with this constant hunger, sloping butter on bread all day, craving for chocolate and eating whole bars on my own.  Feeling the hollow feeling in my tummy, and the desperation of covering it up with food ... Those were the bad old days ... It seems so far away now ...

C_Sharp, Thanks for the advice.  I did not know that there were two different fruits for currants and it did not occurred to me to check Typebase for it.  I have contacted the suppliers to confirm if our currants are the grape or berry type, but I suspect it is the grape type.  I am waiting for their reply.

In the meantime, I demote them from SF to BD (Black Dot, same category as Grapes in my swami).

Didn't the tip of the day for teachers recently mention using the typical dried currant that we readily find? I think it said they were like raisins but smaller.

Could some of the moderators maybe check this?  I usually download those tips, but I missed a few and the one you mentioned was one of them ...  But Currants do get mentioned for teachers in at least one I have (to sweeten up yogurt), but not explanation on them.

The tip of the day data is not organized in search a way that I can search it (or even access it, beyond the current day).

The tip of the day material used to be emailed by WaterFront Media to a mailing list. When this was done it was noted that some of the tips contained advice that was counter to the GenoType diet book. I do not know if all the errors were edited out after WaterFront Media no longer controlled the GenoType diet site.

As a teacher I keep hoping to find grapes and dried grapes that would not be avoids. But I think the reason currants are diamonds is they are not derived from a grape.

Oooops! Reality check!!  And I thought that Dr D himself was putting up these tips!!     I still find most of them useful and appropriate, but I will be keeping a weary eye on their content though ...
