Well I'm 99.999% sure I'm a nomad..just waiting on my secretor status to definitely confirm it...so I was wondering if there are any other nomads out there and if so what do they think of the food lists and what not...I'll be ecstatic if I definitely am a nomad cause all my favorite foods are on the beneficial list  whoohoo

Yep... I'm a nomad too  

I suspect more will be dropping by the oasis once they learn their type. We B's and AB's take our time with things...  

I'm still trying to get a handle on some of the new food values and I would be interested in knowing how the changes came about, not just for nomads but for all the genotype groups.

Hello! I think that i'am nomad to but not sure.. what tells secretor status ? Nomads in majority nonsecretors?

I just think that i'am a nonsecretor-nomad because i'am B with green eyes&red hair& very sensitive digestive tract,carbs making my health bad & i feeling good on nonfat kefir,yoghurt,baked onions with salmon or nonfat lamb(my primary source of nutrition), also i eat prunes but not sure is it good or not.And at all, i dont know what carbs except onions should i eat.

Can you !please!please! show superfood list for nomads?

maybe i'am totally mistaken & i'am an explorer or gatherer, very bad that i didn't have the book & can't login on genotype site cuz i didn't have right credit card..   my book should come to me in feb/08

Also i can say that my middle finger and thumb overlap,my torso < total leg length, upper leg>down leg,
my BMI < normal BMI(small boned,thin& for me it is very hard to weight gain)

Excuse for my English I'am living in mountains of Tibet & sitting in cave now, I do not know English grammar well)

Hey Kris,

A few thoughts about the GT6 diet
  • Fatty acids for colon regeneration similar to GT1 Hunter
  • Balances Catch-Up and Catch-Down Growth
  • Enhances sialic acid production in the gut (imparts an overall negative charge tot he GI tract, similar to GT3 teacher
  • Lectin avoids similar to the BTD 'B' Diet, minimize galectins
  • Enhance steroid metabolism
  • High arginine-citrulline content to maximize nitric oxide repair of immune and endothelial function]
  • Maximize p53 tumor supressor activity
  • Enhance histone acetylation (DNA winding) to minimize microbiological DNA and RNA inclusion into the host genome (as with the other receptor type GT3]

Hi Lex, and welcome!!

Based on the information you have given so far, you could still be either nomad, gatherer, or explorer... depending on your Rh status and the comparative lengths of your index and ring fingers. That is... if I am reading the charts correctly...  

If you have been eating the B secretor diet, there are some changes in the nomad plan... particularly cow's milk has become an avoid, low gluten grains are emphasized, and some of the big avoids like chicken, rye, lentils, and peanuts are now an infrequent or occasional neutral after having been on the GTD for 3-6 months. Plus there are much more beneficial fruits and fruit juices to choose from. But it still resembles the B secretor diet quite a bit with some shifts here and there.....

Thanks for reply Kristin,Dr.D,MyraBee.

I'am Rh+;ring finger>index finger on both hands.

And in additional for my assumption that i have a nomad-GT i can say that "Nitricycle" makes me feel extra-energized.

P.S. Thanks a lot for Dr.D !! GTD is one of the best things in our worlds life,but unfortunately small % of people knew about it.

Lex...here is the nomad superfood list  

[You can't list the diet foods here. It violates copyright. Sorry. -Moderator]

Lex..I hope this helps :O) These are the Nomad Superfoods that "act as medicines, balancing stress, regenerating genes, and repairing the digestive tract.  Superfoods that help nomads maintain ideal weight, increase muscle mass, and decreaes body fat are identified by a * (actually by a diamond in the book lol)...to gain maximum benefit...these foods should be routinely consumed"

Well from the measurements I did today I am an apparent Nomad. Still a little puzzled about some of the diet changes from Bnonnie to Nomad. I'm afraid the avoid of chicken and peanuts is deeply embeded in my psyche but I will dearly miss kidney beans and collard greens.

I'm hesitant about the chicken and peanuts too, especially since I have hypoglycemia and in the BTD book it says peanuts contribute to it...butter is now a superfood also-does this pertain to goat milk butter too I wonder?

my take on this is to adapt your GTD recommendations according to your health issues......much like the tier system in LRFYT......
truly individualized approach!

Under the carbohydrates list it says oat bran and oat flour, as well as rice bran, rice flour, and rice (basmati, white,& brown) are superfoods...so can I assume rice cakes and oats (like oatmeal) are superfoods too?

If they aren't listed as beneficials then I would assume they are neutrals. Perhaps they tax the digestive tract of nomads, or something similar... but just guessing there. I think if they were beneficials they would be listed as such.

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my book.  I think I may be a Nomad.  Seems by the small description on the gtd website I fit the profile.  I'm short (under 5'1"), green eyes, quiet, optimistic and rational (the jury is out on witty!).  I can have a sensitive digestive tract at times.  And according to the fingers-around-the-wrist measurement, I'm a mesomorph.  My index finger appears to be longer than my ring finger, but not by much.

I am normally pretty patient, but my book is taking entirely too long to get here!


99.8% sure I'm a Nomad.
I think........

I keep thinking of all these questions so anyone who has any insight on them, I appreciate it.  On the superfoods list it says gluten free and corn free breads...and then on the toxin list 100% sprouted wheat and essene breads have black dots.  So I was wondering whether ezekiel breads would fall under the gluten free and corn free breads since it does not have these? or maybe neutral? I'm not sure.

I am almost sure that I am nomad. I have tested 21 on the strenght test. Now I am having a really hard time understanding how coconut oil is super benedicial now, as it is avoid for B types ("AVOID: Flocculates serum or precipitates serum proteins"). So what happens if the B non-secretor- Nomad eats it??? Also, the CHICKEN is allowed infrequently after 3 month. I have not have chicken in 9 yrs, as I thought of it as a poison. Maybe I am missing something here. I hope Dr D can help understand this.
