My SWAMI/GT2 plan gives me frequencies for meats, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, etc.
Are they meant to be MINIMUM frequencies or are they meant to be MAXIMUM frequencies?
I have the same question regarding portion sizes: are the portion sizes meant to be MINIMUM portion sizes or MAXIMUM portion sizes.
Too, for example in the dairy category, the only two foods that are superfoods are ghee and Quark cheese. I don't do well with cheese at all (I get congested), and ghee doesn't appeal to me (and though butter does appeal to me, it's a neutral for me and right now I'm sticking to diamonds, superfoods, and gh foods). So is it ok to skip the dairy (I anyway eat sooo many fats (sesame tahini, oils), is it so necessary to have my ghee (ugh)?
Sorry, I just dislike the taste of ghee. (And I can't find kosher quark cheese, never mind if I'll like the taste of it or not)
Thanks all for helping out!

The frequencies and portion sizes are targets to help optimize your weight based on the data you inputed. They need not be adhered to rigidly but should be respected for what they are. The SWAMI also has options (switches) to eat more or less frequently or to eat larger portions, if you choose to use those.

Also, by following the suggested serving/portions you will probably more closely optimize your macro and micro-nutrient intakes as well as getting the specific things to help reset your genes and heal or detox problem areas.

Ghee/butter is very useful as a source of short chain fatty acids which are helpful for gut flora and intestinal health.

I am eating sooo much carob, sesami tahini, and quinoa, I fear I am going way over the recommended frequencies and serving sizes and I hope i still get the benefits' after all, it's carob and quinoa and sesami and NOT ice cream or pizza....

you can stick to all that what feels right to your individuality....
our body has ways to make us aware of anything out of line, so no worries as long as it feels right!
