AB mother and daughter, new to diet.. would they be able to get better shopping lists from Swami  rather then typing out shopping lists from the books? I would think the books are getting oldisch by comparison?

as for reading time, they may not have all that much time, so Swami is more concise and to the point.. but for now ,they have no clue about their geno TYPE..

Mom is tall Italian built with long leggs .. what could her geno type be?

Daughter is tall also, but more chunkey all around..

Thanks


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!

Have they followed BTD - for it might be a start for them  

However I am MUCH pro the swami - personally I don´t think that the GTD book is very good

hmmmmmnot easy to respond... I think lr4yt is one of the best books for AB'chens' ... but Swami might be clearer coz of the capacity to come along with the true individual needs of each demander....

btw... my swami recomendations are nearly 100% to lr4yt but corresponding to my type as being an A2B nonnie   .... might be that I'm a rare birdy ...

I saw that nomads might be shaped as described... ... but merely can be petite or grande  (very tall).... what do they show up from their body types?? meso-endo

If they can afford SWAMI, it is the best diet because it is so individualized.  This is especially important for AB types because they can fall into 4 Genotypes, rather than 3 for every other blood type.

The GTD is an advancement in concept from the Blood Type diet, but so many people fit one specific Genotype less than 50%, so it really makes sense to go directly to SWAMI.

It is always good to read all of the books to get the background information about why you are following this eating plan, but bottom line - people want something that works and prefer it to be easy.

Joe took the words nearly right out of my mouth.  I think we have very similar approaches.  I think it is SO good to read all of them and BTD is a great place to start.  However, I think there are some very important upgrades in GTD and I agree that if you're going to to GTD a SWAMI is so much better than the book diet.  Way more.  My SWAMI is a lot more like my BTD.  BUT, the BTD books show things like wheat and sugar as neutrals and that might give people license to overuse.  And then there is the whole coconut oil thing.  Avoid for all on BTD but so good for some of us.

^  Just what I was going to say, but coming from ABJoe give you more reason to listen.

There are going to be rare individuals that work better with BTD - at least for some time.  Catching them is what the BTD/GTD test is all about.

i know for me, SWAMI has been the best! BTD by the book worked somewhat (i saw some improvements), GTD by the book did not work for me AT ALL but i understood the principles and i knew that there was important information for me there, SWAMI combined both diets, along with a few "surprises" - avoids for me, that were neutrals or beneficials on the by the book diets!!

I agree with Joe - as an AB there are more considerations, more geneotypes, and going directly to SWAMI may be a wise move for your AB family members.
