Maybe this is one for Dr D to clarify as well?

Husband is A1 with those possible genotypes.

A1 is dominant.

So the phenotype will be A1 regardless of whether the genotype is A1-A1, A1-A2, or A1-O.

Quoted from Cristina

Maybe the A2 meat eating thing is more a explorer or Teacher thing?    It certainly did not affect my warrior swami list!  


Quoted from Symbi

Interesting, probably your measurements, medical history and other results overturn the A2 result.  


Or maybe the meat eating thing is a 'nonnie' thing.  My husband, being an A1, was made a  Warrior by Swami but he is allowed to eat lamb and mutton once a week and ostrich, emu and turkey twice a week.  He then has the longest list of fish diamonds I have ever seen! His fish neutrals counts leave spare fingers in one hand and his avoids and black dots does not use too many fingers on the second hand!!!  He has his favourites tomatoes and pimentos together with Spelt and Kamut wheat as  neutrals ... i can see a pizza coming his way, but just with the soft cheeses: ricotta, paneer, quark, cottage and feta!  i will have to experiment with this ... We still have many things in common, like coffee and chocolate!!! Lucky us!  

I cheated a bit to obtain the Swami report though, because i could not take his fingerprints, did not have the ink pad, so i used the 'composite' choice for all his fingers.  Need to update this with real imprints when i get them.  Lola suggested to use a magnifier glass on his fingers ,  that may work ...

Look at them in bright light with the magnifying glass.  I'm very nearsighted so I could see them easily in the sun even without the magnifying glass.

I used a classic roller-ball pen to "color" my finger tips. Then I pressed them on a paper sheet. The imprints were quite readable.

Done! I used the magnifying glass (thanks Lola and all for the ideas).  He has arches, loops and a couple of whorls and Swami made him a 54% Swami thrifty type of warrior.  He has a very nice diet, all his favorites are there!!   I also took the opportunity of reviewing my prints, using the magnifying glass and I discovered a whorl (like inside a loop) and a couple of arches which previously I thought were loops. Swami still made me a warrior, but a RECEPTOR type warrior, which brings it into line with the Teacher side of me.  My lists changed a bit, still no red meats, but I have Ostrich as a superfood and Emu and Turkey as Neutrals in the Poultry group.  I have got Rye and all types of wheat (including gluten) added to my Carbs group and in the dairy I now have Goat milk as neutrals.  The rest is pretty much the same.

BTW, I think my ridges are so much clear now compare to a few months ago, and I do not seem to have many white lines!!  

I produced the lists for both of us, stuck them on the fridge and a quick comparison makes me think that there are not that many differences between hubby and I, so it should be easy cooking in my kitchen.

Good !
It's very important to have a number of favorite foods not only allowed but also beneficial. It compensates our efforts to stay away from other foods we also love but are avoids.

I am really ok with my own list now. Meat and poultry are allowed each three times a week. Fish, 4 times a week. The "veggie" aspect of A's diet I first followed, and later of Warrior's I thought I was, really didn't please me. I think I would not have been able to follow those two diets strickly on the long course.

I also enjoy a lot grapefruit, apple and... blueberry juices, three superfoods. Without forgetting carrot juice, a diamond !

Except for Apple juice that is a neutral, they are all superfoods for me too, with Grapefruit a diamond!!

DH on the other hand has both Apple and Blueberry juices as neutral, but enjoys the same rating as me for carrots and Grapefruit juice!!

I meant, from the scientific point of view, if there is any chance that in some cases there could be the 3 options given for a person.  Unusual, but could it be scientifically possible?  

Labs close for holidays, this will have to wait a few days for the clarification from them ...

Cristina,

I have something that is like a whorl within a loop, which I don't feel I can call a whorl. (Doing so had me end up as a Teacher.)  I have now given it composite or loop and get the same Explorer diet with each of those. I can see that my decision to not call it a whorl makes sense because, I was having too many problems crop up on my teacher diet like new cavities, skin issues, allergies/asthma, and losing hair! I may have had some thyroid suppression.

Cristina, with your new picture, you don't seem to have a long head anymore. I don't feel that the head shape will make you 100% one thing or another. I have a long head and definitely am not a Warrior. Like you, I am receptive. Your head probably is one thing that points you a little in the direction of Teacher. For me, my main measurements (ie, advanced calculator ones), are Teacher traits, plus I do have a few whorls and GI issues too; my fingerprints have shifted me over to Explorer and it really feels right now.

Agathe, I'm like you. While I saw some benefit from the A BTD in terms of allergies, I couldn't sustain such a vegetarian diet, even though it had its appeal for a while. I love to eat nuts, fruits, veggies, beans and grains, but need the animal protein. I guess if I had concentrated more on fish, I would have been able to sustain the A diet longer. I'm glad I never ended up having to try the Warrior diet. I would have really been in bad shape.

I was being reserved until Chandon mentioned this..but when I saw the new photo
of Cristina and saw A2 listed along with Warrior, my first thought was Teacher. Face
looks more round than long to me.  And Cristina's personality "feels" to me Teacher-like too...the desire to be helpful and want to "teach" others which is very much like I am.

Chloe, Chandon you got me thinking.  If I am guided by food reactions, I could use the placing of Kefir as a determinant of suitable food lists.  I have tried Kefir in the past and I associate with a tremendous built up of mucous!!!  The one that you feel at the back of your throat on a continuous drip!!  Warrior places that in the superbenes or diamond while Teacher sends it to the avoids!!  ding ding (warning bells!!).
So I went back and review my traits:

A+ = either Warrior or Teacher
A2 = Teacher
MN = Warrior
Secretor = Warror or Teacher
Index fingers reversed = Teacher

Torso longer than legs = Warrior or Teacher
Ecto-endomorph = Teacher
Sinew = Teacher (you can see the colour of my veins and the outline of my tendons clearly)
Slight Taster = Teacher
Narrow gonial angle = Teacher
Feeling = Teacher
High WHR = Warrior

Note: The two values in bold above, I changed now, I had it as endomorphic, but that is not me. I am not barrel chested or pear shaped, I am shapelly with more belly and boobs and arms than I need, but, they are moving down (slowwwwwly though), and will be ideal soon.  Slight taster makes more sense now than the super taster I had.  I taste things, but not to the extreme of finding cabbage taste awful,  

In doubt:
Lower/Upper leg measurements
Lower Longer = Warrior
Upper longer = Teacher
Very close measurements, equal or even upper favour  
Currently is set to Lower leg longer, changing to upper leg will increase the percentage in Teacher


finger prints
Who Am I kidding? They are all loops, a couple are standish loops with a right angle bend at the very bottom which make me think they could be arches ...  And even the one that seem to have like a one line closed arch  (whorl) it is inside a very definite loop.  In other words if my blood type were OAB instead of A I will be a definite Nomad!!! So, neither Warrior nor Teacher here, no warrior arches, no teacher whorls ... Had it changed the other day to indicate a couple of Arches, but changed back now and that gave me a Teacher GT!!  Sensitive Swami!

So i am looking back at the Teacher diet now that gives me Goat in the red meats, Turkey, ostrich and Squab (what is that?) as diamonds, emu beneficial and chicken as neutral (that rooster better behave now, it is looking dangerous for him!!).  Yogourt is there in SFs and of course the pecorinos, parmesan, romanos and others sharing that spot.  Kefir, Riccota , paneer, quark all gone to black dots ...  Now I have to consume 6 cups of live foods, I was strugling with 5!! and my fruit frequency is 3 times daily when it was only 2 before!  I like all the choices, I think I could live on this diet happily ever after ...

Please, do not judge or laugh at me, the journey to discovery is a tricky one, but at least I am blessed with the fact that I am doing it by choice and not forced upon me.  I am contemplating these changes because the weight is still moving slowly, so although feeling fantastic, good lab results, I need that extra push to shake the final kgs off. I have got to do it right, without having to depend on things like the 'weight loss pack'.  I want to do it by eating properly for my type.  It is defining that type that is the tricky part.  No complaints ...  At least I have SwamiX to help me do it and adapt as needed!!
