So at last .. I'm hooked into Swami and although it's not telling me anything more than the book .. I'm still reading my report with interest and a laugh here and there...

For example, here's a list of avoids in the red meat categorie:

Beef, Heart •
Beef, Liver •
Calf, Liver •
Ham
Pork, Bacon
Squirrel •

I'm thinking ya, ok no problem - who the heck eats squirrel anyway ????????

BBQ and fried squirrel is very good. Squirrel meat is much like the dark meat on chicken. debbie

I live in San Diego, CA and we have a park called Balboa Park where there are an abundance of gray squirrels running around with their fluffy tails.  My dog, Honey (11 yr old, female, cocker spaniel) loves to chase the squirrels.  They run up the tree and then turn around and look down (mocking the dog, of course).

Anyway, I just can't see one of those creatures ... on  ... my ... plate!

So I think I'll pass on 'squirrel'.

I feel the same way about the horse and kangaroo on my avoid list!

Actually, I have no problem with Dr. D. researching these "exotic" meats and having the information available for those who eat them. But what confused me is that Andrea checked off the "kosher" box on my SWAMI and I still got non-kosher meats and fishes on my list? Nor are they all listed as avoids- opossum is no more kosher than squirrel or horse, and it's listed as a neutral!

I'm thinking maybe Dr. D. is just studying how many kosher consumers are using SWAMI software, rather than actually using the "kosher" box to alter the food lists.

ruthiegirl...that's an interesting question...If you checked off the kosher box (I don't recall seeing that option on my Swami) on your Swami...why then are non-kosher foods being recommended?

Let me go back and check ruthie and see if it stayed checked. Sometimes SWAMI has a bug.
Doing it right now..

Andrea...if the kosher box stayed checked why do you think that Swami still recommended foods that are not kosher?  Who can we ask?

  Didn't we have this conversation the day you did my SWAMI? We didn't have an answer then either.

I'll keep looking for Dr. D's comment on this subject.  It may be a glitch in the Swami program. I'll just wait to see what he has to say about it.

there might be some kosher options of the given foods which we are not aware of their existence......maybe searching for specialized kosher foods might give you some options......all is possible

Lola...I'm not kosher, but since Swami asks that question and the box is checked "yes", one would assume that Swami would then include only kosher foods on the resulting food list.  It poses the question...what would be the purpose for asking that question if not to create a totally kosher list of food options?

I just want to clarify that the Kosher checkbox is only present in SWAMI GenoType and not in SWAMI Xpress.

It may be that this feature has not been fully implimented.

If there is a specific list of nonkosher foods with settings that need to to be adjusted,
you may want to post the list of foods with incorrect Kosher values in the SWAMI bug report thread.

C_sharp...no wonder I didn't notice the "kosher" option box...I have SWAMI Xpress and so you point out that the kosher option is not there.  I took such care to fill out every option & I would've been surprised to find out that as careful as I was that I missed anything.

right, and Dr D knows exactly which boxes are nonkosher foods with settings
and tweak those for his particular patients.
