At the begining of the summer it was mentioned that there would be updates coming out at the end of the summer. Fall is almost here, where are the updates? Have they already happened and I just missed them or are they coming later in the fall? Just curious!

ExplorerInNM,

while you wait, why not take a shot at finding out your subtype and MN system?

you already have done a secretor saliva test, right?

then there s the genographic project mitochondrial dna,
and even the y chromosome if you had a blood brother close or your father living

all these can be imputed into swami, and will help narrow your genetic individuality yet more

I see you are the curious kind, like me!!

Adam, after being totally astounded that you were changed from a Warrior to a Teacher, I reran
my SWAMI this afternoon and saw that my Teacher status change to Explorer.   It's rather
daunting to start another diet.  But after reading my food list, I think this new diet suits me much
better.  I always felt something about eating cheese all wrong.  And now eggs became neutral
which sounds right to me.  How does SWAMI know so much?

You are right! I am now a Warrior! I was a teacher by the book, then Swami had me as a teacher, but I had rushed the measurements and when I fixed them I was a warrior, then I change healthe history and I was an explorer and now I am back to a Warrior! I need to print out my lists again! Or should I wait for hte rest of the updates??

I went from 38% explorer to 45% warrior. Pretty cool! So more updates are coming? Does that mean I may change genotypes again? I don't want to go crazy warrior only to find out it may change again. This is exciting to have changes. I need to go back and look at my new food lists again.

WarriorInNM - nothing has changed yet for me except last night when I logged on there was a sentence saying that my SWAMI was being edited as of 1:21 p.m., Sept. 20, 2011. Looked today, but no changes. My original SWAMI shows me as 44% explorer, how did you get percentages for the other genotype? I intuitively think I have gatherer %'s in there, but don't know the actual #. Perhaps it the blood type A's that are being tweaked at the moment as the changes mentioned thus far as from the A's? It will be interesting to see if there are changes for me; I never thought about it until now but I wonder if for some nothing much will change? We'll just have to wait and see won't we!

You only get the % of the Genotype it labels you. Some people are on the cusp between 2 or more different gentoypes, and a few "minor" changes can change their genotype, which then comes with its own %.

When your (I'm speaking to everyone who's status has changed recently) status has changed from one "type" to another, do your food lists also change dramatically?

Yes, huge difference for me.

I lost chicken livers as a superfood and wound up with lamb, which had been a neutral.

Remember me complaining about being allergic to eggs, dairy, wheat and gluten grains.

Eggs which were superfoods became neutral.....Most wheat became neutral....most gluten
grains are now neutral and yet I didn't tell SWAMI anything new about myself.

All my diamond berries became neutral...I've got a really weird group of fruits....most I've
never tasted in my life....Most are uncommon wild berries that aren't readily available where
I live.  Maybe as jam, but not as food.

Fish didn't change all that much....Minor changes there.

My grains went down to 2 portions per day....which is no big deal.

My live foods went to 5 cups from 6 cups.

My condiments didn't change much.

Dairy for the most part changed in minor ways. I got ricotta and mozarella back to superfoods.
They were Teacher toxins...

Teacher diet didn't work for me at all....THe longer I followed it, the more Explorer "issues' I
started to have.  Allergic to foods I didn't eat for so long when I followed the BTD, to airborne pollen, trees, weeds, mold. Oddly enough these were the very issues the BTD cleared up for me.
THe Teacher diet brought all these issues back...and made me appear to be overly sensitive
to my environment.  I became the canary in a coal mine on the Teacher's diet...Took me 3 years
and each month I just became more reactive.

In the past 2 months I had slipped back slowly to the A diet....but now Explorer diet has taken
away most of my soy....which was the one food I never did that great on when I followed the A
diet. I always upped my poultry instead of eating soy....and now I've got a whole bunch of
strange poultry....grouse, squab, quail, partridge, ostrich...foods I've never tasted and not sure
I can find them locally.  But still, got turkey as a superfood.  Poultry is now 2x a week. My
portions changed somewhat.

So the answer to your question "yes, my diet looks drastically different, especially the proteins"
and the foods I know don't work for me seemed to have dropped down to neutral status.

I think I will be happy with these new foods.

Like you, I don't want to see my food list change again...although I agree...it is exciting to have

Now I'm wondering if the changes that happened to my swami weren't because of me putting in a new weight (which is what happened a couple of months ago). My "type" didn't change (I'm still a Warrior), but my food list changed...cabbage went from an avoid to neutral, for example, and turkey went from a neutral to a bennie). I had my old bennies and avoids laminated, and saved the cards, so I can compare.

Changes users make in the data on the intake form are normally what creates changes in diet plans.

The changes* in the next release of SWAMI Xpress are already complete in SWAMI GenoType.

These changes have not resulted in major changes to my client's diet plans.

Changes elsewhere in the product are much easier to note than in the diet plans:

The color of the data intake form changed.

Some terms changed. For instance, people now have a "Epigenotype Superfamily" rather than a "GenoType"

The meal planner has a new interface and is substantially enhanced.

*There could be things I do not know about.




I think their is one exception to the above.  The new SWAMI Xpress release should include new recipes, which I think are not yet in SWAMI GenoType (my information may not be complete).  But the presence are absence of new recipes does not affect the calculation engine that generates the diet plans.

JJR I think the changes occur more often when you are close to another geno 33 1/3 if 44% less chance perhaps although i suppose you could be 43 % of one 43 % of another and just 14 of the last like me. but is 43 33 24 change would be rare.

I would imagine that when the new version is released in its entirety, we will be notified on the board? I doubt much will change for me although for the fun of it, I put myself as a Gatherer on SWAMI and the diet was quite close except for the cheeses. I would sure love to get cottage back; the kind I used to buy is a pressed cake and has no gums in it and I have been craving it for some time now. Love it with fruit!

I didn't change anything when I ran my SWAMI two days ago.......except that 3 months ago I did add my Haplogroup but that didn't change my genotype.  Perhaps now it was accounted for.

Dianne, I get farmer's cheese as a neutral.  Do you get that?  It's rather similar in taste to cottage cheese,
just drier.

I see you're in Finland...I'll bet your farmer's cheese tastes better than what is called farmer's
cheese in America....Ours is like a block of dry cottage cheese that crumbles when you slice
into it.  It's more like dry ricotta than mozzarella...

3 of my genotypes are all very close in percentage.  Either way, mine hasn't changed in the last couple of weeks.  But I didn't go in and change anything.  I'm wondering if these people had put a new input in.  Because if I change some of my inputs, which I don't need to, things change.

which is also known in English as Finnish squeaky cheese, is a fresh cheese traditionally made from cow's beestings, rich milk from a cow that has recently calved. Reindeer or even goat milk can also be used. Commercially available versions are typically made from regular milk, and they lack some colour and flavour because of this. The cheese originally comes from Ostrobothnia[disambiguation needed], Northern Finland and Kainuu.

I did not change a thing.  I simply went in to change my weight, and noticed right off the bat that I was changed to a Teacher.  Dr. D may have run something after making his updates and some Genotypes were changed just from his changes.  I then updated my weight, retook the M-B personality test, which changed to the Artist (ISFP), and it still had Teacher.  So, I'm a Teacher, and actually looking forward to the changes to the diet.

I was eating Farmers cheese with omelets several mornings a week, and always noticed my stomach gurgling afterwards, but just thought it was part of some 'detox' process or something.  Now, without it, I'm fine.  It is a dot on my new SWAMI, so that explains it.  Dr. D is definitely narrowing in on things.  But, I could also give him more info like Lewis, MN, and A1/A2, which I've yet to do, and I really want to, but seems like it is impossible to do, due to unavailability of testing in the US.  I did the DNA thing with National Geographic, so he has that, which should tell him a lot about me.

My swami does not appear to have changed at all.  I'm still 40% Explorer.  I still get no cheese, only quark and Romanian urda as neutrals.

Chloe, look at this (can you?):

http://www.google.com/search?h.....l6l0l137l261l2.1l3l0

Quite different.


Totally different....I'm not sure if the farmer's cheese we can find in America is as correct a SWAMI compliant match as yours is.

I just re-ran my SWAMI as well, and got no changes.  I wasn't looking for any changes, so I'm not disappointed...  I wonder if those that are getting changes have run it longer ago than thoise of us who aren't getting changes...  
Prior to last night, I last ran mine in early January 2011.

Yeah, I jump on mine every so often to see if it has updated.  Or I tweak something here and there and see what happens.  So, I've messed with mine several times since January.  I wonder when Adam had last done his......

I had changed my weight and was changed to Teacher.  Then I noticed that I never selected whether my wrist tendons were visible or not.  I changed that and then had to put a new blood test result in there.  Even with checking off liver problems and infections, still came out a teacher.   I guess the weight issues I have are from being toxic.  Certainly with Lyme and coinfections, that fits being toxic for sure.  

Still waiting on National Geographic Haplogroup results.  Should be another 3 weeks and then I can put that in too.  

I am making the changes on my shopping list.  At least my Nomad husband and I cross over on some foods, so if I have to stop eating something, he just gets to eat it!! HeHe.

I don't remember exactly, but it has been several months.  Probably early spring 2011, as I fell off the wagon bigtime early this year and ballooned my weight up to 260 by mid-summer.  Down to 230 now and want to keep it going down to around 200 or so, which is my ideal weight.

Where does it say that your Swami has been updated 100%?

Sorry, my mistake in reading quickly.. it doesn't say updated..  It says your SWAMI intake form is now 100% complete.......and that is probably something that has always been there but I never noticed.  I read it quickly and
told myself it meant that SWAMI (update) had been completed.  But I was wrong.

I'm still a Teacher.

After going through the information I put into my swami, the one thing that changed me back to a Teacher was the visable tendons section.  It said optional, so I had not selected anything in the drop down box.  When I select visible, or very visible, it puts me as a Teacher.  Not visible puts me as an explorer.  Weird that one tiny thing like tendons  being visible or not would change your geno type.

I do follow a lot of the background as a Teacher.  The only thing that doesn't make sense is the weight gain, but that started well into my 40's.  I was an underweight kid and a normal weighted adult until sometime in my 40's.  Even then, I wasn't much over what I should weigh until the Lyme disease hit.  

So maybe I am a Teacher.  Not happy about less lamb each week, but I am going to make the changes.  Biggest problem I have is getting a good variety of fish available to me.  I can't find a lot of the types in my swami list and some of the available fish like salmon, I just can't eat right now.  It just sits in my stomach and does not digest.  I can eat cod, and am able to eat water packed sardines now in my salad.  Can't find any Mahi Mahi again, red snapper, tilapia that is wild caught.  I don't mind fish 5 times a week as long as I can have some kind of variety.  I keep looking online but mostly I am finding all kinds of salmon, tuna and cod wild caught and nothing else.
in.  

Even with being sick with Lyme disease, Swami has just saved my stomach.  I am using the Digestive Gold and Lipo Gold enzymes and they are really helping.


When my halplogroup dna test comes back, it may change swami again.

I have no visible tendons either, which doesn't go along with a Teacher.  The addition of
my Haplogroup didn't change my SWAMI.  What might have changed your weight (gaining)
is toxicity and that goes along with being a Teacher.  My personality fits both Teacher and
Explorer.  I'm quiet for the most part and don't like conflict -- the soul of an artist (and I'm
an artist)....so that fit me from the start...but also for an Explorer "I like to do it my way"...
and the food/environmental sensitivities...and the fact that Teacher is the one genotype that
gets so much dairy. I do poorly on dairy and not much better on eggs.  Yet, I don't like meat
and never did.  Prefer lighter foods like fish and plants.

So for each person, one tiny thing might put you over the line and change your genotype.
I feel I fall right between Teacher and Explorer...but having no visible tendons didn't keep
me as an Explorer.  DIfferent for everyone, I'm pretty sure.

I've got that chronic Lyme thing since I'm in my late 20s...SWAMI did keep me from having
Lyme flareups...Genoma Security seems to be an amazing formula for me.  Perhaps the older
we are, the longer we're dealing with a health issue, the longer it takes to feel perfectly well.
I have more stamina..I can exercise 3x a week...Five years ago I couldn't walk up a flight of
stairs without crying.  I have made progress. I shouldn't complain about the small stuff..

You are right, even a small change can make the difference. Swami doesn't know about the toxic weight gain as there are no questions that address that.  I did mark the infections section.  

I am at my ideal weight now after almost two years of on and off dieting.  It is easier to stay close to my weight on swami, but I still go up on the scale when I eat something that my stomach can't digest.  And these are beneficial foods on my swami.  I have to eat very lightly for a couple of days to let the offending food work it's way out.

All I can add is that Lyme is a toxicity of a whole different matter. It's got a stealth component
plus a viral component....flare ups that affect every system of the body.  I'm at the point where
my weight doesn't fluctuate and I'm close to my ideal weight.  I too will suddenly find a food
that doesn't make my gut happy...even beneficial foods on my SWAMI.  I had to eliminate
dairy and eggs....in order to find a way to quiet my reactivity...  But this allergic thing for
me goes through cycles.  I started my SWAMI eating cheese and eggs ...when suddenly, I developed an intolerance for both.  Taking them out of my diet right now to see if I'm correct.... that it might be one or both of these foods, I can later add them back very carefully, one food at a time and re-check for tolerance.   But for now, my body seems happy off both foods.

From my experience, if I suspect a food doesn't work, I take it out of my diet until I'm feeling
ready to try again.  Sometimes beans will bother me...sometimes I digest them perfectly. When
you have Lyme issues, it sort of colors your world, doesn't it...

I think this is why I'm not typed as an Explorer....because at the heart and soul of who i am,
if you take Lyme out of the picture, I'm not an overreactive person to foods or my environment.
Of course a general SWAMI doesn't take these types of issues into consideration.

As far as marking the infections section, I did too...but prior to Lyme, I would have to say that
I hadn't taken any antibiotics since I was a child. I had two bacterial infections as a child...Scarlet Fever...impetigo...that I remember...Never an ear infection or even tonsillitis.....Most of my adult illnesses were colds, viruses and bugs I caught from my children...not infections that required antibiotics.  So I'm not really sure I'm fighting any bacterial infection anymore...Taking Genoma Security helps to remove the biofilms from bacteria.  I feel it's working...I feel pretty healthy.

Chloe, good to read your post.
I am celebrating my 10th anniversary of the D'adamo w.o.l. this month, and finding that I continue to want to refine my diet and activity. On the latter I have just given myself a gift of an exercise program that I plug into the TV and perform every day if I choose to...that covers the days that are too wet, too hot or too cold to go walking.
On food, I am starting to suspect that some angle of wheat may be a small issue for me..I now notice that I get stomach bloating occasionally which makes my waist band too tight...so I have a progressive plan to eliminate wheat, (using spelt instead), and if that fails, I will eliminate spelt, and failing that, eliminate all gluten products. Could have a good side effect in weight control which is always a challenge for me.

I feel the same way as you.  Before I had health problems, I used to be around chemicals and what not and never felt TOO awful.  I worked in a cabinet shop for 4 years.  Although that may have help lead to further problems down the road.  I don't know.  But I was very hearty before getting lyme.  I'm not sure how long it's been in my system though.  I have a sneaking suspicion of when, but not sure.  The first sign of something ever being wrong was a consistent arrhythmia.  It would go away, quickly, but it eventually got worse.  Then one day, the guts just stopped working severely.  So I try to go back and remember who I was before it all started, and take that into account a little bit, but regardless of that, I am who I am now, and that's the most pertinent.  Because I'm trying to work back to who I was.  And fwiw, your post gave me hope.  There are times when I'm fatigued to the point that I'd rather not go up some stairs.  It's not every day, but this spring has brought about some pretty intense fatigue.  And your post has given me hope that it can be overcome.  I am getting better.  But it's sloooooow.  But thank you.

My doctor and I went through my history and we can see Lyme symptoms 10 years ago.  Going through the history of symptoms, accidents, stress, you can see that my immune system had enough and just went off the cliff 4 years ago.  

My white count is low, I have a gene mutation (MTHFR C677T single copy gene mutation) where I can't make folic acid or B12.  I have to take prescription strength folic acid and do two B12 injections every week.  My adrenals are so low they are putting me back on cortef.  Lyme and coinfections have pretty much shut off my immune system.  

My DH sees the Lyme doctor for treatment on Tuesday. It is no fun when one person is dealing with this, but we both have it.

Keep the faith....although there may be ups and downs, Lyme is handled better now than it once was.
Lyme literate doctors didn't exist decades ago....I had little options but to try anything and everything
I could...many things I tried on my own...What worked and what didn't work is now becoming a blur.
I just know that it often feels hopeless when I've proven to myself that there's a light at the end of the
tunnel.

I've approached this nasty condition from every angle possible....spiritually, emotionally, physically.
I've had reiki, hands on healing, massages, chiropractic, homeopathic, osteopathic, conventional
medicine........I've meditated for hours at a time...I've prayed, cried, given up,
come back from the dark side and fought harder....I've dealt with insane fatigue, intense depression and crazy anxiety....all kinds of nervous system problems.  And all I can say after so much struggling is that I'm very much improved.  Many days I feel very well.

I wish you guys the very best of health.  I know you'll finally "get there".

Kim,
I'm seeing a traditional/holistic doctor who is treating me for chronic lyme and don't know when it started.  Part of my brain is finding it hard to believe that I have chronic lyme.  What symptoms did you see in your history that helped you see signs off it 10 years ago?
I think my adrenal/immune was off to a poor start as a child, had hayfever from age 3, and I'm told the adrenals still need help. My white blood cells and platelets dropped below the minimum about 8 years ago and it's been a struggle getting them above the minimum but did so this year.Liver enzymes not outside the range but moved up to high end, and tend to go up and down.

I thought from some of the comments that some updates to Swami had already been released.
Also, thanks for clarifying what the comment "We are editing...." on the profile..", is about.

I know you are joking, but I'm sure they can hear us...  
I also know from the Eng. perspective that it usually doesn't help the developer(s) to have marketing or sales standing around watching or "pressuring" to get the product out...  We are all anxious to get the update, but want the developers to be comfortable that it is working properly - BEFORE release.  Nothing worse than a mad scramble to fix an oversight.

Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Elderberries= Arkansas they grow on the side of the road.  Look for in wines make a great dark red wine.   I make a ticture for flu season. Makes a great jelly but that has to much sugar for us. Main ingredent in Proberry 3.  Can get Elderberry juice concentrate from Wylderwood cellars (got mine at the Post Winery here in Ark. (be warned $25 for 12.5fl. oz) If you pick your own only use the berries.

I'm so glad you asked that. I'd forgotten all about have that bottle of concentrate. Think I'll see how it does the my salad dressing instead of the wild cherry concentrate.  Elderberries are strong so I would think the one small bottle will go a long ways.

So there is an up coming update? I hope it is before I move and lose my interent for a month.
though one thing I figured out is that I can only be a hunter or gatherer. No explorer. Though I am bit confused because the book put me in as a gatherer and then swami being a bit deeper look into account health and my finnish lapp ancestry. Confusing because the first two months on the gatherer I droped ten pounds. Now due to thyroid I am up 20 lbs. So I don't know what to think.

I am gluten-free, corn-free, white potato-free, low carb, low sugar, limited yeast. Have diagnosed hypothyroidism now. Taking T3 5 mcg and T4 50 mcg daily, along with 5000 iu D3 which I am starting to alternate with 10,000 iu D3 for the winter and 1000 iu B12 both subliguals.

Does anyone have those menus that they had for the first online premium program for a hunter? I love to have to use as a guide? Menu planning is not my forte.

Well, it would be wonderful to get a response from the ORIGINAl without updates instead of "the server is not responding." Which it certainly is not.

I think we are getting closer to the release date.  I am not expecting much notification in advance of the actual release date.

The software is on the server, and Bob and Dr. D. (and possibly others) are currently involved in testing the software. But they have not said when they anticipate being able to release the software to the public.

I've seen real minor changes in mine in just how it looks and what it says on the front.  So I can kind of see what you mean.  At one time it didn't say my GTD on the front, when you're doing redoing the info.  And now that's back.  But as far as these big upgrades, I don't know.  It doesn't seem like it.

My swami changed the other day.  It was two items in the vegetable proteins.  But I don't recall changing anything in the info.  Interesting.

A few days ago I looked at mine and, strangely enough, my oils had changed considerably. So I don't know whether this is happening gradually or not. I have eight superfood oils now instead of twelve. Eighteen avoids instead of fifteen. Evening primrose and flax went neutral, but I will still use a limited amount of them as they have been staples for me these twenty plus years! And I do love sesame so it will still be around too -- maybe I can start loving rice bran oil as well, and, possibly, it could take its place.

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...

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.

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.

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?

This happened to me a few hours ago!!!  My DNA info and all medical history gone!!! I update it and change my GT to Explorer!   I think I put some different info though which shows how close I am between my GTs 38% for each Warrior and Teacher and now 40% Explorer ...

The thing is that even when I saved it, logging out and back in will find those fields blank again!!! I had to do it a few times before finally it accepted the changes ...  The other estrange thing is that I received an e-mail from support (when I did not report any faults) saying that my profile has been updated!!!  Quickly went in expecting to have new version ... but not, same old SwamiX ... But the fields were not blank this time ... so whatever the glitch was, it seems to be working fine now ... well, at least a couple of hours ago, when I last checked!!!  

Looks like we may get that update soon enough!!!  Lola watch out!!!

What? There is a new Swami software program about to be released? I just purchased my Swami Xpress software last week! I asked the customer service lady on the phone if I would be getting all of the software updates to the program automatically without any additional cost, and she said yes! Now I am hearing about this Swami XP2 software that is about to come out any day now, and we have to purchase it separately? Is this true? What's going on here?

And.... what's this about our GenoType changing? I didn't know that was possible. Dr. D implies in his GenoType book, that we only have one GenoType! Can someone please explain to me how using the Swami software would change our GenoType? That's disappointing. How would I know if my GenoType changes? When I registered with Swami, it asked me what my GenoType is, and I entered all of the necessary data from all of the tests from the book. So how is it possible that my GenoType would change in the future?

If you select a GenoType in the software, SWAMI will take the value you specified over the one it calculates.  It will not change.


If you choose to allow SWAMI to use the value it calculates rather than the value you specify it will use a more sophisticated algorithm to calculate the GenoType than the one presented in the book.

The SWAMI algorithm uses more data than the book does, thus it sometimes gets different results than one calculated using the book. But you can always tell SWAMI to not "Determine GenoType For Me" and specify the value you want to use.

Oh wow! This is news to me! This changes everything! I logged back into my Swami acct. and chose the option of letting Swami calculate my GenoType for me, and lo and behold I am not a Gatherer like I thought! It says I am a Hunter GenoType!

I am having a hard time understanding how the calculations (tests, questions, measurements, etc. from the GenoType book) could have possibly been wrong? Using the tables & advanced calculators in the book (having submitted every possible answer asked of me) it concluded without a doubt that I was a Gatherer. A Hunter GenoType was not even a possibility for me as far as the book was concerned. So how is it possible that the book can be so wrong?  

The data that I entered into the Swami software program was NOT different, nor did it ask for hardly any new info that I hadn't already used to calculate my GenoType with the book. Sounds like the book is really outdated and shouldn't be used to calculate one's GenoType anymore. I wish I had known months ago that it was possible that the GenoType that I calculated with the book could be the wrong GenoType for me. It turns out I have been eating all wrong for myself. Yikes!

I noticed some people have a percentage listed next to their GenoType, I assume there is a way to find out how much of a Hunter GenoType I am? Where do I go to get my percentage?

I have to say, this all seems to contradict what Dr. D was saying in his book: people can only be ONE GenoType, not half this and half that. He made it sound like it was very definitive, and that it couldn't change. I had planned on teaching this GenoTyping to my clients using the book's tests, but now I am seeing that the book's GenoType calculators are unreliable. How am I supposed to account for this?

Yes, it is always better to let Swami X calculate your genotype ... let it do the work for you ...

I wish I had known months ago that it was possible that the GenoType that I calculated with the book could be the wrong GenoType for me. It turns out I have been eating all wrong for myself. Yikes!

That 'hardly any new info' that you think is insignificant, is what pulls you apart from the generalization implied in the Genotype book!  The GT book is not wrong or outdated ... it is applying general rules across the board ... Your Swami report is more detailed and applies that extra data to give you a lifestyle report better suited for you!

I noticed some people have a percentage listed next to their GenoType, I assume there is a way to find out how much of a Hunter GenoType I am? Where do I go to get my percentage?

If you select not to abreviated report option, you will find the % value for your labelled Swami GT in about page 4.

I have to say, this all seems to contradict what Dr. D was saying in his book: people can only be ONE GenoType, not half this and half that. He made it sound like it was very definitive, and that it couldn't change. I had planned on teaching this GenoTyping to my clients using the book's tests, but now I am seeing that the book's GenoType calculators are unreliable. How am I supposed to account for this?  

The fact that SwamiX gave you a GT name it does not mean that you are 100% that GT, it only means that you have a certain percentage that matches that particular GT, the rest of the percentage is a mixture within you of characteristics and trends typical to your blood type or the other GTs possible in your blood type.  

Dr D explains it very well when he says that each one of us can only be one GT and one GT only ... this means that you are YOU and I am ME, each one of us are unique individuals ... how many of us in the world? billions, trillions ... well, that is how many GTs we should have ... all individually different ... can you imagine trying to give unique names to each?  Do not get hang up on the label ... your Hunter Swami Report is unique to you and it is different to my friend's Hunter Swami report and that is the way it should be ...

EatToLive, you will also notice that others with the same genotype who have used swami wil have somewhat different beneficials, neutrals and avoids. Others of your genotype who have not used swami will all have the same recommendations as you before you applied swami. Swami individualizes your recommendations based on the additional data. Much more accurate for your individual needs, and I imagine there are some tipping points beyond lectin issues etc. that move an avoid food in the book list to neutral or even beneficial with the swami calculators.

I hope this helps.

I rechecked my swami report and I perhaps I didn't interpret properly.  Here is what I was referring to from the report:

The six GenoTypes described by Dr. D'Adamo are very broad characterizations; no individual is purely one GenoType. Since many of the GenoType characteristics overlap, most people will have aspects of at least two or more GenoTypes. However SWAMI Xpress uses powerful statistical tools to calculate which single GenoType best captures the highest degree of your unique variation.

Please, swami gurus, correct me if I am wrong, but the foods recommended should  not change for an individual based on their own perception of genotype identity.
Am I correct?.

EatToLive, a similar thing happened to me, in terms of genotype. I appeared to be a Gatherer, based on my own calculations. I have many Gatherer characteristics, such as curvy hips, blood type,etc. At earlier points, I have carried more weight--esp. in the years after pregnancies.  Now I am more lean. Of course my blood type, O, has stayed consistent--to my chagrin!  (I would prefer to be vegetarian)
When I first entered data for swami, I entered Gatherer as the genotype. Swami told me that while I had entered Gatherer, they disagreed and viewed me as a Hunter. The Strength tests support Hunter on several more points than Gatherer.

But the important thing is the specific foods that are calculated to be of benefit, not which "genotype club" I belong to.

Your particular, Swami-ized hunter diet originated from the ER4YT diet.  But other factors applied within Swami (such as health issues and family history) further refine where a specific food falls on the beneficial/neutral/avoid list. It's a matter of a higher degree of specificity with Swami.

Say for example, you have a genetic predisposition to a particular disease. A food item that might be OK for a general ER4YT type O diet might be ill-advised for you personally given this predisposition, because existing and potential health issues are considered as well. This is why the Swami approach is so strongly advocated. It's further along the evolutionary path from the original blood-type diet foundation.

The ER4YT diet is still better than any "one size fits all" diet, but Swami is better yet because it is individualized to your specific conditions.

always allow swami to do the math for you

let the software calculate your genotype for you, given all your personal data

Quoted from EatToLive
I am having a hard time understanding how the calculations (tests, questions, measurements, etc. from the GenoType book) could have possibly been wrong? Using the tables & advanced calculators in the book (having submitted every possible answer asked of me) it concluded without a doubt that I was a Gatherer. A Hunter GenoType was not even a possibility for me as far as the book was concerned. So how is it possible that the book can be so wrong?

If you look at the Advanced Tables in the book, they only use 3 ratios + 3 Blood Type questions.  SWAMI utilizes ALL of the information entered to calculate the best match for you.  To include the number of parameters SWAMI uses in the book tables, would require huge tables that people would never be able to wade through.  This is why SWAMI is so beneficial for many people.
Quoted from EatToLive
I noticed some people have a percentage listed next to their GenoType, I assume there is a way to find out how much of a Hunter GenoType I am? Where do I go to get my percentage?

If you choose the "Full Report", it should show up on page 4 or so...

If you determine the Genotype, instead of allowing SwamiX to determine it, Swami report will only give you foods that are appropriate for that genotype you forced it to report on ... In other words, the lists from a forced upon Swami Genotype vs the Genotype determined by Swami X itself, are DIFFERENT! (unless of course you are the unique individual that encapsulates 100% of the said Genotype) .... Always let SwamiX do  all the calculations .... Simple and accurate!

Thank you to all you Swami Gurus! That really helps me to clarify what I thought was an exact science. Your answers to my questions are very much appreciated! I am ready to proceed now, thank you!

I'm going to copy and paste an older post of mine, explaining how SWAMI can "change" your genotype:

We're all unique individuals. GTD divides us up into 6 different categories. Some of us fit really well into one category. Some of us don't seem to fit into any of the categories well, while some of us seem to fit into several all at once.

SWAMI takes into account lots of information about you, and computes a diet just for you. Genotype labeling is part of the computational process,  but in the end it's not very important. My SWAMI diet plan varies widely from the Gatherer plan in the book, but interestingly it's not all that different from Goldie's diet plan, as we're both O nonnie Gatherers with some of the same health issues (diabetes and arthritis.) My food list is closer to Goldie's (whom I've only met online) than it is to my own daughter's, who' an O, assumed secretor, Explorer. So that label does have some value in finding somebody with a similar food list to swap recipes and eating tips with.

Then there are people like Henriette who see their "genotype label" change when she changes some of the input data. That's because she's already straddling 3 different types; she never fit particularly well into any one of them. It's like she's standing on the border and takes one step to the east, and she's in ExplorerLand. Then she takes one step north and enters Gathererland. Move a little to the southwest and she's in Nomadland. Meanwhile I'm standing in the middle of Gathererland and I could move a few steps in any direction and never get anywhere near the borders with Hunterland or Explorerland. It's not that her whole outlook on life changes when she changes genotypes; it's just that she's already showing characteristics of all 3 types, and the genotype label changes when she needs to emphasize one health issue rather than another. My SWAMI is just as sensitive to changes in the input data and refining my food lists, even though the label does not change.

If you find yourself switching from Nomad to Gatherer, that means that you've always had those "Gatherer Traits" in you; they were just overshadowed by the "Nomad Traits." Once you've healed some of the "nomad problems" some of the "gatherer problems" may become higher priorities to heal next.

Quoted from Cristina
If you select not to abreviated report option, you will find the % value for your labelled Swami GT in about page 4.

WOW!  I didn't know this was an option.  

It's showing me as 43% Hunter, less than 50%.  I realize that the diet is generated for me specifically, so the category shouldn't concern me, but I'm curious as to why I'm classed as a hunter when 57% of me is other genotype(s).

BHealthy - I figure you must have bits of 2 or more other genotypes, so that the other genotypes are individually less than 43% of you, leaving Hunter as the dominant one.

43% is actually a very high percentage. It's not that 57% of you is "other genotypes." It's that 53% of you is "uniquely you, not fitting into any genotype label at all."

Thank you Ruthiegirl for that explanation. That's what I was looking for! Just what I needed to make sense of it all. I wish Dr. D would add a little paragraph at the beginning of the Swami Intake form explaining that it is very possible for your GT label to change once you let Swami calculate what your GenoType after filling out the entire intake form. I think people need a heads up, that just because they have figured out their GT from the book, doesn't mean that they should actually be following that GT diet, in other words, it could be the wrong diet for them. Swami is the best way to go, if you want to be sure!

Thank you Ruthie for this excellent explaination.

My warrior status was initially only in the mid 30s, percentage wise. As my statistics improved, my warrior status got stronger, and my food lists changed slightly as well. Interesting how positive health changes can solidify one's genotype.

I know I keep asking, but the timeline has changed several times. First is was last summer, then last fall, then this summer, then more specifically this July and now here it is almost October and still no updates. I am not complaining - I would love to have the updates and waiting for all the bugs to be out is worth it, I was just curious if there was a new time frame in which we can expect the changes?
