I have SWAMI Express but cannot find this percentage of genotype that folks are talking about.  Can anyone tell me where I find it?

OK, I figured all the right buttons to push on my SWAMI to get the report.  SWAMI says I'm 35% Explorer and the diet is VERY different from my Hunter/O diet report that I had earlier.  So if I'm 35% Explorer (according to SWAMI) what is the other 65%? Also, I don't understand why SWAMI would decide I'm Explorer when I'm Rh+, right handed, and can drink a pot of coffee and go right to sleep (not exactly characteristics of Explorer).  When I went through the genotype book I had every characteristic of Hunter except that my torso was longer than my legs.  I think SWAMI is wrong!  There, I said it!  Forgive my blaspheme, but something is amiss in the software and while it's a very good product, it's not perfect.  I'm going to overide SWAMI with the Hunter profile because in my case, I believe I know better.

Lady from 29 Palms,

I am also right handed, RH+, and can drink coffee anytime and still fall asleep...and swami makes me 37% Explorer when I change one item. Otherwise it makes me 38% Teacher. My torso is obviously longer than my legs also, and my thighs are a bit longer than my lower legs.
The percentage gives you an idea of how much your body encapsulates that genotype.
Most of us are some sort of mix, some more than others...as in my case. I have been following the teacher/ then teacher swami diet for years and have done fine. When I printed out both types, I checked and cross-checked each food list. The great thing about swami is it shows you the best/most personal of all the possibilities. So, since my explorer and teacher swami's are so similar I could probably do well on either. I am sure if I went and had a Swami Pro instead of Swami Xpress,( due to even  more personal details), one of my choices would be more clear; either a higher percentage of teacher or explorer.
Run your swami after checking or re thinking some of the items...ex; I had to change the western or southern European item, also one of the past health items...Then compare the food lists.   Explorer gave me lamb and different cheese and egg ratings but left most all fruits and veggies the same and very slightly changed grains. I really think I could follow either.

OK, SWAMI is getting strange again.  I changed my family history answers in regard to my grandparents.  I only marked those ailments that at least two grandparents had.  If only one grandparent had it then I left it blank.  Now SWAMI says I'm a 36% Gatherer!  Looks like a fine line between the two.  It won't let me change the part about my fingers overlapping at my wrists.  They do overlap but I marked "just touch".  If I get that changed somehow it will be interesting to see what SWAMI comes up with next.  Very, very strange.

Obviously, you are borderline between three different Genotypes.  It seems like every little change is changing the output significantly, so the only thing you can do is get the input data as accurate as possible.  If you need to change a "time-locked" field, contact the swami support people and let them know...

It is frustrating for the few that fall right on the borders like this, but there will always be some, no matter what - it is just that you are one of the "lucky" few!

Thanks AB Joe, I see that you're 34% Nomad so you know my frustration.  I know Gatherer has got to be the weakest part of my profile for a number of reasons, while Hunter is the strongest and Explorer a strong second.  I managed to print out all three genotype diet reports on me and decided to make my own diet out of the three.  I accepted all the beneficial and neutrals in common and will avoid all avoids, even if it appears as a beneficial in another genotype.  Based on this methodology, the number and types of foods I can have are quite limited, but doable.  I'm going to give this a try and see what happens.

Quoted from Niko
What percentage of your Epigenetic Variation is Encapsulated by your Swami determined Genotype?

I find it interesting that the Genotype Diet book shows the standard diets for each Genotype, however it is unlikely that any person will fit a true 100% Genotype profile.  I'm curious to see the matched Genotype percentage range within the Swami user population.

Note: If you're Genotype has changed over time, just vote on your most recent Swami determined Genotype with the most accurate data to your knowledge.  Remember, you're choosing the Genotype that Swami selected...not a Genotype that you manually selected.

Feel free to post your individual percentage in the comments below.

Even though I just recently re-ran my SWAMI with updated info re my weight, etc., I have already forgotten the exact percentage (and I am posting this from work, so don't have access to it at the moment), but I remember that I still came out strength-tested very strongly as a Gatherer.  I was actually worried that, since I lost so much weight and my measurements are so different now, that it would think I was an Explorer or something, but *whew!*, still a Gatherer.  I'm glad, 'cause if it ain't broke, don't fix it!     I do specfreakintacular (new word I just made up   ) on the Gatherer diet, yay!

Fortunately, mine is a very stable 33-35% Nomad...  Every change I've made it still maintains very close to the same % and diet...

OK, just had my wrist encirclment changed from "just touch" to "overlap" (I didn't lose weight, I just didn't mark this right to begin with).  Now SWAMI says I'm 41% Hunter.  That's the highest I've seen of any SWAMI run thus far.  But since I obviously have strong characteristics of Gatherer and Explorer, I'm still going to try blending all three diets by eating only those beneficials in common and avoiding all avoids, regardless if it's a beneficial on another list.  Manchego cheese, carrots, and pumpkin seeds are all perfect examples of foods that are white diamond beneficial on one list but evil black dot on another.  So I'll avoid them all anyway.

Finally finally...just completed my SWAMI over the weekend

45% Gatherer...no surprise there as I had been following the GTD for gatherer ...just a few minor changes to what I´ve been doing all along...I actually now have pecorino as a diamond & not cottage cheese as I had thought! Nicer!

As others have suggested, it would be interesting to know what percentages of the other genotypes make up the rest of my profile! I guess that Explorer is there also as I´m extremely sensitive to caffeine and gave up tea and coffee about 15 yrs go...dark chocolate and green tea don´t effect me so much, but still I would never have them late in the day
