Pardon my enthusiasm.  My SWAMI arrived on Saturday, and I filled it out yesterday.  I actually used the GenoTyping kit first, then did the SWAMI, but they both came out with the same answer so - I AM A HUNTER!  Given my life-long struggles with weight, I would not have guessed this just by reading the description.  That's why I'm really glad I have the double confirmation.

Anyway, I'm trying to set myself up for success, so I want to start somewhat slowly and build myself up to more rigorous compliance.  I've committed that this week, I will eliminate wheat.  

What I would also like to do, is begin tracking my food intake, based on the SWAMI recommendations.  Rather than having a food log that specifies exactly what I ate, it would be a check list - so many portions of red meat, poultry, etc.  The one thing I would actually list (they would also be included in the appropriate place as a check mark) is any avoid I ate.  That way, I would know which foods to target next (after the wheat).  Does this sound like a viable plan?  

I appreciate the feedback.

Joji732 - welcome to the campfire (as Lloyd puts it)  !

Your plan sounds like a great idea to me!

What I also found useful is a pocket-sized guide to the food lists, that you can have on hand when you're at the shops buying food - at least until you really get to know which foods are which.

I've done one for the basic GTD Hunter foods which I can email you if you would like it - then you could personalise it to your SWAMI.

Happy hunting!

Yes.

In case it is helpful, here is an example of doing something similar:

Thanks for the offer, Munchkin.  SWAMI actually produces a shopping list wallet card of beneficials and avoids.

Joji732 - no worries!

The wonders of SWAMI never cease to amaze me - might have to get me that myself!!

Happy hunting!

A weekly serving planner sounds like a great idea!

My recent weight loss came from adhering to the serving count closer than before.  Check your servings, list your avoids, and go for it!

Good plan!

Hey.  Nobody says "Happy Warrioring" to me.   I don't guess I need any help.

Sounds great, Joji, but let me give you a suggestion.  I have found, when trying to eliminate a common food from my diet (or when talking with others about how to go about doing it), it's best to give it about three weeks.  One week to accidentally forget, one week to accidentally ingest things like "modified food starch", and one week to actually get it right and start healing.  Just a thought.
