I have a SWAMI pro. I can't just re-run it myself and play around with the settings; I have to go back to the practitioner if I want it re-run. I've only done that twice: first when I got SWAMI the first time, and the second when I got my secretor status tested (she double-checked my measurements when she took the saliva sample, then emailed me the new SWAMI report.) I don't intend to go back there unless my health changes dramatically. Entering menopause would be a reason to have SWAMI re-run; losing 30 pounds would not be.

It would be nice to play around with the portion sizes and stuff, but I just have it set the way it is. I eat more if I'm not satisfied with the SWAMI portions.

I was going to say I wonder if Spring accidently toggled something on or off without realizing it.. to make such a difference in her menu?  

Can't Kent go and check it for her?

im just saying that if a person is trying to be 100%, then things change and they find out that some of the things that were suppose to be superfoods, ect, are now not. so even if they think theve been eating all the right things they then may find out that they have been eating things that are actually bad for them. ive seen many posts from people saying this. ive been doing the basic btd, it had helped me tremendously. i intend to continue it the rest of my life




I think you may be missing an important point or two.

Your body and health change over time. Why shouldn't your nutritional needs change?

The SWAMI is for the snapshot that you provide at the time the program is run.

I think she would have to contact Bob @ DPN to discuss the results...

Going back to what I said some time ago, there is no question that I am teetering on the cusp of two different GenoTypes. Throw in being a nonnie and a few other things, and I don't think there is any software yet that can figure all that out  completely. To be candid, I think I am doing exceptionally well considering everything.

As for my diet right now, I have three diamond superfoods in veggie proteins. I have seven diamond superfoods in fruits. Two I simply can't eat. Never saw a paw paw and elderberries don't grow around here anymore (I do take elderberry supplements).  So that leaves three diamonds in fruits. Of course, turkey is the only diamond in poultry. No diamonds in dairy.

So considering the fact that I don't have many of the problems that SWAMI lists as concerns for Explorers, I think I have my Warrior tendencies to thank for that. OR SWAMI, GENO, BTD, ER4YT have all performed marvelously, and I don't have to worry about eating neutrals and the occasional black dot anymore, as long as they don't bother me! I have two pages of test results here and none of the numbers are of any concern to my doctor whatsoever, and he went over every single item on there with me. Aside from that, he knows more about nutrition than all the other doctors I've ever been to put together. But looking at his demeanor tells a lot more than what he says. He has very clear eyes, a bounce in his step, listens to what you say without forming opinions before the words leave your mouth, doesn't look like he is "doped up" on anything, never seems in a hurry, but he doesn't waste a second of the appointment. I have a tendency to really like doctors who don't look like they partied too late the night before - I guess you can tell that though!

Remember when people were complaining about part of their profiles getting wiped out, and everything having to be re-entered? That happened to me a few times, but it hasn't in quite a while so I forgot about it. Just now I decided to check the drop-down box, and, lo and behold,  everything was blank, again! I re-entered the info for my family history - so far they had/have problems that I don't have - not yet, anyway. When I entered all that, strangely enough, I got my diet back to the letter! You would think it would be the other way around - that I would be more restricted instead of less!! Maybe the family profile has a different meaning than I thought.

After this round I hope I NEVER forget again that SWAMI may wipe out some of my entries and to check, check, check!!!

losing 30 pounds would not be.

I would think the only reason that it would matter to post a 30-pound loss is because if we lost that much and needed to lose another 30, our portions would be quite a bit less!

Not necessarily...  You don't want to eat so little that the body goes into "conserve" mode...

I do not like that behavior on an html form. I put in a request for a change through the online help in SWAMI.

If you are losing data when sections of the intake data are collapsed, you will want to leave all the section of the data intake form uncollapsed until there is a fix.

Sorry for the difficulty.

(I like to see the data, so I do not collapse the sections. But if you allow people to collapse, you should not wipe out the data because they choose to use the feature.)

A lot of the time the dreaded "plateaus" are a result of not lowering serving sizes - not immediately, of course, but when it is certain that the plateau is "real!" You're right about the conserve mode, though. I call it the starvation mode! I either have to raise the level of my workouts or lower the amount I eat.

On my laptop those sections collapse by default. Though it doesn't happen on my tablet.

Wow! So sorry for all your troubles, Spring!
And I thought it was weird that celery went from a super to an avoid about 2 months ago! Only thing that changed "all on its own"

Thanks, Cajun! I have everything back in order in my printed diet now so all finally turned out well. Both celery and cucumber turned into neutrals on that other crazy diet, but now I have them both back as superfoods and celery is a diamond! So I feel pretty good after all these days of feeling like I had lost several of my best friends!! I do not like that feeling!!

I know!
I think I stay with the teacher diet because it allows just a little bit
more variety than my explorer print out. I've been following it for years now anyway...2 with swami and roughly 10 with BTD and then teacher genotype.
Glad you are set now1
