Just curious but is it possible for SWAMI to give back things like chicken to B or AB people? Or are the main avoids still avoids no matter what?


Some foods that were avoids on Blood Type or GenoType diet may become neutral or beneficial in SWAMI. (some foods go the other direction also)

However, I would not count on Chicken moving to a beneficial category for you.

Tami, I honestly believe that if you give up chicken for just a few weeks, you'll never want to eat it again.  It was the first thing I eliminated cold turkey, and was astonished by how much better I felt-- sort of an overall decongest. B's and AB's just can't metabolize it, and it wreaks havoc with a number of our systems.

For some lesser avoids, it may be possible to get it back via SWAMI, but the chicken lectin is so powerful that I doubt any B or AB would ever get it back...

There are 6 or 7 foods at the front of each Type section in Live Right to avoid to prevent lectin damage and I doubt anyone of any type ever gets those back via SWAMI...  It would be counter-intuitive to the whole reason we follow this plan.

Rosa, I took the plunge and just got my SWAMI, my brain just hurt from trying to be such an ace detective   ...It's brilliant...so glad I did. I happen to like boundaries and was feeling lost trying to balance blood type and genotype...it really is like fairy godmother waving her sparkly wand, and now all the worry has just gone and I can just get on with the living, and the eating, and the being happy, knowing what it means when I put food in my body...good or bad...am now in control.
Hope you get your SWAMI soon and love it as much as I do and hope you get just as many lovely surprises...yum, yum, yum...
Congratulations!

The main avoids usually still remain avoids, but I have heard of Bs or ABs getting chicken as a black dot. My daughter's SWAMI gives her wheat as a black dot, and she can eat it in moderation without any obvious symptoms. (We'll see what her overall health is like after a year away from a real kitchen.) She does a lot worse on potatoes than she does on wheat, and potatoes are an outright avoid for her.

Why is it that there would be a difference in an avoid food between the BT, genotype and SWAMI?  I don't understand that.  And, if it recommends venison, deer, elk, rabbit as meat sources, and to cut back on ground beef, and no chicken, and you would NEVER eat those (venison, deer, elb, etc.) what the heck is left to eat?  Also, how to find FISH that is not irradiated from the leakages?  Thank you!

If there was no difference there would be one system.

Different factors are considered in rating the foods in the different systems, so the foods have different ratings.

Consult the food lists in whatever system you are using. There should be lots of other things to eat.  With the exception of Chicken I never eat any of the foods on your list. But I have no trouble finding things to eat (today it is green beans, black beans, a variety of greens, carrots, walnuts, peanuts, plum, grapefruit, note that I am an A not a B)

>how to find FISH that is not irradiated from the leakages?

Fish from streams and lakes should not be contaminated by what has been spilled in the Ocean.  Perhaps I will have some trout tomorrow.

What makes you think that nothing has been spilled in the lake?


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.

The BTD and the GTD are taking different approaches to bringing your body into a state of balanced health.  The BTD is helping you to make the most of the genes you have inherited.  The GTD is helping you to change your genes by toning down or putting to sleep the negative expressions of disease and inherited weaknesses;  and waking up or enhancing the positive strengths in your genes that might have remained dormant for generations.  The SWAMI is an individualized program designed just for your body and usually includes some of the best influences of both the BTD and the GTD.

And, if it recommends venison, deer, elk, rabbit as meat sources, and to cut back on ground beef, and no chicken, and you would NEVER eat those (venison, deer, elb, etc.) what the heck is left to eat?  

I choose lean lamb and it works great for me.  

Also, how to find FISH that is not irradiated from the leakages?  

I have been eating wild Pacific Chinook Salmon for 20 years, but sadly, it doesn't appear to be a safe choice anymore.  Since I am determined to eat fish and especially fatty, cold water fish, I've started ordering canned sardines from Vital Choice.  The fish are wild-caught off the coast of Norway and packed fresh in non-BPA containing cans, with organic extra virgin olive oil and sea salt.  I get the boneless fillets, which are not smoked.  They're delicious - better than any sardines I've ever tried.





Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Well I have lots more to eat on the swami  

I have both beef,veal, venison as superfood
- turkey is diamond ( so is goat,rabbit and lamb)
I am not so crazy about lamb- so I live happy with the other meats.

Fish is much more varied as well.

For me it was a big relief to get a swami ( thank you -you know who that gave it to me )

If all 3 systems recommended the same thing, why would we need all 3 systems?

Remember that all foods have some "good things" in them as well as some "bad things" in them. What Dr D has done is evaluate "how much do you need the nutrients in this food" vs "how much will the toxins in this food harm you?" to determine the food ratings.

Blood Type Diet takes a look at blood type for determining which foods are good or bad for the individual. In Genotype, more factors are considered. Some foods that are good for "most type Bs" might not be such a good choice for type Bs who are also Explorers. The foods contain the same nutrients and anti-nutrients, but the relative weight of "how important is this nutrient" vs "how toxic is this anti-nutrient" change when different factors are evaluated.

SWAMI takes a look at even more factors. Chicken is toxic because of the way the lectin affects type B blood. Beef isn't harmful to *most* type B individuals, but there's something about it that just isn't good for you personally. Meanwhile, some other meats are especially good for you.

Do the best you can with the fish. It's really unfortunate that the planet is so polluted. You just need to evaluate how much your body needs the nutrients from fish vs how toxic that particular kind of fish is.

Well I finally completed my SWAMI...and as I said in another thread I´m swamied as      "Gatherer" which was no surprise   thank goodness I already was (almost!) on the right nutritional path for me

Just a few pleasant surprises...Lamb is diamond, so is pineapple, spirulina but so is pecorino...now that was a nice bonus!! Life is good!!!

So far I´m thoroughly delighted to be finished being "ace detective" ...many thanks to you Brimstone and everyone for gentle encouragement to just "go-ahead" even without my secretor-status...

Now I need to just stick with my Diamonds and Supers

"Kombucha tea" is listed in the "beverage" section of my SWAMI. For me, it's a black dot. It should be listed for you (though I have no clue how it will rate for you personally.) Look again. I have my SWAMI report saved as a PDF file and I can use "control-F" to search for specific words.
