From time to time nutrition data is corrected or updated based on new data.

Most changes noted by users is not from this but from changes to data the user enters on the data intake form.

i order rice bran oil from Amazon.. a 3 bottle container at a great price. i love it.  i use it to fry instead of olive oil.

I ordered some from Puritan and got a good price recently. In fact, it was a little cheaper than Amazon. I noticed someone there was complaining about them going up on their price since the time they ordered before. Glad you ordered three bottles!! I really like it too!

yes i realize that.. but i haven't made any changes for awhile and did notice some changes on my Swami...so i was wondering if i could depend on Dr. Dadamo to be updating the Swami program overall so all the updates hit our individual Swami's and whenever we pulled them up they'd be there...

I like all this updating "based on new data!"


That's scientific research for you. Comes in handy.

It would also be nice to know what changes have been made, like maybe they could be highlighted or something so we don't have to go through our entire swami food list to figure out what has changed.

For those that are concerned, you can always use a diff utility to tell what has changed from your last report.

Winmerge:

KDiff3 (Windows, Linux , MAC):

Many word processing programs (like Microsoft Word) have diff utilities built in if you do not want to install additional software.

Lloyd, I think you need something else to do. Are you bored?


I was simply agreeing with you that the ability to incorporate new scientific data into the diets is a great thing.

I have plenty to do, thanks.

Dr. D. said a few weeks ago that SWAMI XP2 was in final testing.

I expect the software to be released shortly, but do not have exact date.

I am new to swami and to this forum. I am at once grateful and overwhelmed by the collective wisdom and experience. Additionally, I am curious about new XP2 info and the chatter that will follow.

One thing I just realized is that I have been assuming that swami XP2 might offer me more choices, instead of fewer.  

Note to self: Be careful what you wish for.

SWAMI XP2 will offer additional choices. These include:

Choices to join or cross reference your account to other SWAMI accounts
Lifestyle choices (Kosher, Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian, ...)
More health condition choices
Nutrient filter choices
Meal Planner allows you to choose in different ways

I have been using on and off BTD since about 1994 and Swami on and off since it first came out. The BTD on and off was because in the beginning is was very hard to give up corn and wheat - they are in sooooo many things and many times hidden. The reason for the on/off on swami was because my geneotype kept changing - at first I put in what I had figured from using the geneotype book and didn't realize that the swami program might change it, then when I let the program decide it changed, then randomly one day it changed on it's own - no data changes, then it changed again with some data changes, then it changed again with some more data changes ( my health changed) so I have been back and forth with a few genotypes. I am ahappiest as a Warrior because it is easier to eat vegan as a warrior, but I was a teacher and explorer during all the changes. It makes shopping difficult when your type keeps changing - the changes in the lists at first don't appear to be so diferent but when eating vegan fruit and veggie changes can be huge. I am hoping the new program has a vegan option (the sample I saw posted only offer vegetarian options - not vegan). I am hoping the updates eliminates all the changes.

I do not have access to the prerelease version of SWAMI XP2, but the curent release of SWAMI GenoType allows blood type A individuals to select a lacto vegetarian option, so the only thing you have to work out is whether you ignore the discussion in the report about dairy or increase the vegetable protein servings to make up for the dairy servings that you omit.

I would presume SWAM XP2 handles these food prerequisites in a similar way to SWAMI GenoType.

I've run mine twice, about four years apart.  Didn't notice any major changes.

I would appreciate it if any O Explorers would PM me if they suddenly notice that ice cream and/or coffee become a Diamond.  


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Hi, I just ordered my very own SWAMI about 10 minutes ago. Does that mean I might get the Newest Version of it?

Nope, you will get the code that will allow you to access SwamiX on line so you can input your data and produce the reports suited for you.  The reports are the ones that you can then download to pdf and keep in your computer for reference, so you do not need to log into Swami all the time, 24/7.

We all access the same version on line ... we will soon find out when one of these days, some of us will log in and notice the updates.  It will be that person responsibility then to posted in this forum and let us know, so we can all log in and get our reports from the updated version ..  

Who will be the first to spot the changes?

I wonder if it might be best if we didn't all log in the same time.  I wouldn't want to crash the system.

I bet Dr D has it all figured out!  All we have to worry about is getting it as soon as possible and apply it to our lives!
