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!

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.

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.

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?

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."

I'm assuming this poll will be around at the end of summer when I go to the Teaching Shift and get everything re-run. I'm still eating Explorer Diamonds with no problem except for the foods indicated that would speed up or slow down the thyroid (tubers, nuts and veggies.) otherwise I'm still Explorer - with no hot flashes, but adrenals and thyroid that See-Saw around and a liver that's "malcolm in the middle"

I could not participate in the survey because:

The reason I ordered the SWAMI Xpress kit was that I didn't even come close to fitting any of the GT's in the book.  Every food list sounded ghastly to me, and none of my measurements fit any GT and neither did my bone structure or other detail things.

When I did the SWAMI Xpress with help in measuring from a friend who really knows how to measure correctly, I wound up in the right place for me - with a food list that fits - and lost a bit more weight from what I had lost on the BTD over the years.  My bone structure is definitely not Explorer, but like others, the "part of me" that is explorer is less than 50%.  The part of my custom food list that is "right 4 me" is over 90%** and that is what counts, right?  

**Yes, there are things on my food list that I can't eat because of my wonky digestive system, but no computer program and no human could come up with the perfect list.  Mine is awfully close to perfect for me though.  


6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.  THEN:  
Dec 2013: Started Swami Xpress - I'm 48% Explorer with hybridized Explorer/BTD list. A new adventure for this old lady!  -- LOST 5 more pounds on SWAMI!

As Lola has said: Use the Advanced Calculator in the back of the book.
The option to go for more individuality than a 6-type system can provide is always yours, of course, but the Advanced Calculator does work, for those who'd like to use the GTD.
