SWAMI Explorer

I'm a Warrior from Genotype and, of course, a 47% Explorer with SWAMI. Many food changes. I like being an Explorer! I am large-boned (Explorer), but not left handed. No Rh negative blood type, but I am a non-secretor! I am not brown-eyed or dark-haired, but I am a super-taster! And not many doctors have ever understood any problems I've had until I figured it out myself and told them - an Explorer challenge, for sure! So far, haven't had any liver or gallbladder problems, though. I hate coffee! Dr. D. has a lot to say about the Explorer having the propensity to be anemic, but I have never seen anything like that - more apt to be the opposite. So it is all very interesting, to say the least!

SWAMI 51% GT3 Teacher Rh- Supertaster

I was a teacher according to the GTD book & according to SWAMI without my secretor status entered. I just got my results back today & I'm a nonnie. After entering in non-secretor (& making sure to select "choose my genotype"), my percentage went down from 53% to 51%. White & whole wheat flour moved from neutral to avoid (bummer). White wine & seltzer water moved from avoid to neutral (yay!). I've still gotta go through any changes more closely, but that's what I saw at first glance. I'm so happy that I stayed a Teacher since the work out suggestions & foods work well for me.

This screams Explorer, but can happen to other Genotypes to lesser degrees.

I seem to "fit" with the health challenges of both Explorers and Gatherers. SWAMI has me as Gatherer though, so I guess "blood sugar stability" is a higher priority than "detox" for me right now. I wonder if it will change if I ever lose these 25 pounds.

I definitely have more liver issues (and a lower alcohol tolerance) than my 17yo Explorer DD.

Exploring Hunter SWAMI 47% vs.47% PROP:taster

I was balancing between Hunter and Explorer and secretor status was one of the trigers. Since I've put in some more details into SWAMI (low platelet count, personality test) it puts me as an Explorer regardless secretor status. And this is interesting because according to Advanced Calculator I could be an Explorer only if Non-secretor, whereas with Secretor I'm 45% Explorer, Non-secretor 48%, 47% with no status.

By the way, how do you get your Genotype showing under avatar??

Go to the "Member Center" above, click on "Profile Information", scroll down to "Personal Message" and type in what you want.

For reference, this is where I have "34% Nomad".

Changing my husband from unknown to nonnie changed him from 44% Hunter to 40% explorer.  My son however is a warrior by the advanced genotype table in the book and swami, being a nonnie just lowered his percentage by a few points.

Yes, SWAMI changed me from a Warrior to a Teacher after I had been following the GT5 diet for four years or so......and developed arthritis...... must have been all of that celery and oatmeal I was eating!

All of my mom's folks came from northeastern Hungary in the foothills of the mountains.  I think that would also make a genetic difference-- and surely the translvanians would also be a bit different...anyone have a clue about this?

Does anyone come out as 100% of a genotype or close with Swami?

Hmm I just realized if SWAMI changes what I am my forum name won't fit any more lol.

If anybody came out 100% one genotype, or even as high as 90%, that person didn't really need SWAMI. He or she could have followed the lists in the book with great results.

I'm not entirely sure what Andrea entered into my SWAMI for nationality.  My ancestors come from Eastern Europe- Russia, Romania, and Poland. But since I got a SWAMI pro rather than a SWAMI XPress, I just gave my info to Andrea and she figured out what to enter into the computer.

Bekkki- I suppose you could try changing your nationality in SWAMI and see if it makes any significant differences in the end result. Play around with a few different options if none of them seem to be a "perfect fit."
