Cristina's Swami Xpress is getting a bit of a rest while I try this new SwamiX GT 4 experience ...

I am getting a 45% GT4! WOW!  I am feeling like a young kid evolving into different GTs   ... Let's see where this path is taking me ...

The beauty of it all, is that in this way of life I feel safe to experiment and try different things, because the guidelines are for my blood type anyway ... You cannot do that with anybody else, I mean, with any one of those 'one size fits all' lifestyles ...

Yes, I may have to de-emphasize some 'used to be diamond' things, like the coffee (now neutral) I grown into loving while teacher, the dates, one of my fav comfort foods (now black dot) ... and get used to eating more animal protein and exercising to sweat toxins out ... done that, been there before, but this time I have the sieve of a guided true to type lifestyle to ensure I keep the damaging things out ...

Maybe I am impatient regarding my weight and Warrior and Teacher would have got me there eventually, or maybe not ... they certainly were not making me any sickier ... or were they?  What if I am the receptor explorer that allows things in until is too late?  It has happened to me in the past ... 15 years ago, find myself overweight, feeling OK and then ended up in hospital getting nuclear scanned for possible clots... It all resulted negative and docs could not explain what happened to me then ... sure Dr D would have been able to figure it out should I have found him then ...  The result of that episode was another crash diet, probably replacing meals with some powder thing not compatible for my type ... all to again put it all back on and more soon after ....

So, like I said before in the other thread, I am ready to give this a try ... I am not asking SwamiX to make me GT4, I just feed data pertaining to my past medical history, a couple of very close measurements that could go either way ... swamiX makes me a explorer within the range of 39 to 45% GT4.

I am bringing some stats from the other thread to compare where I err in genotyping me by adding the 'Explorer' applicability...

A+ = either Warrior or Teacher (Explorers tend to be A-, but they can also be A+)
A2 = Teacher [b]or Explorer

MN = Warrior
Secretor = Warrior or Teacher
Index fingers reversed = Teacher adjusting right hand makes ring longer on both, 1 or two mm difference to the ring finger ... It then becomes a Explorer trait

Torso longer than legs = Warrior or Teacher or Explorer
Ecto-endomorph = Teacher esomorphic now - muscle coming back to replace fat = Explorer
Sinew = Teacher (you can see the colour of my veins and the outline of my tendons clearly)
Slight Taster = Teacher Since I used the strips and tasted Pro = Explorer
Narrow gonial angle = Teacher or Explorer
Feeling = Teacher or Explorer
Ntuitive = Explorer
Perceptive = Explorer
Introvert = Explorer - Extrovert reduces Explorer by 1%

High WHR = Warrior


In doubt:
Lower/Upper leg measurements
Lower Longer = Warrior
Upper longer = Teacher or Explorer decided on Upper then and now
...

finger prints
Still all loops, did not change anything there, but Explorer picks them up as a trait indicating: Ridge patterns asymmetrical to blood group /Characteristic of Explorer. Is this because I have Ulnar Loops in all fingers but index fingers where they are radial

Regarding this comment from the other thread:
Quoted Text

So i am looking back at the Teacher diet now that gives me Goat in the red meats, Turkey, ostrich and Squab (what is that?) as diamonds, emu beneficial and chicken as neutral (that rooster better behave now, it is looking dangerous for him!!).  Yogourt is there in SFs and of course the pecorinos, parmesan, romanos and others sharing that spot.  Kefir, Riccota , paneer, quark all gone to black dots ...  Now I have to consume 6 cups of live foods, I was strugling with 5!! and my fruit frequency is 3 times daily when it was only 2 before!  I like all the choices, I think I could live on this diet happily ever after ...


Explorer diet now removed goat to black dots (never ate that in 6 months of teacher diet) and gave me Lamb and mutton as benes ( I can certainly eat that) and marrow bone soup in neutral (one of my fav soups from childhood!!!   )  
Explorer still kept Turkey, Ostrich and Squabs as diamonds, (will continue to eat turkey  and ignoring those other two ), it moved emu to black dot (just as well, I will never eat that), it kept chicken in neutral (eat occasionally) and added cornish hen, guinea hen and a couple of other birds to the benes ...  

In the cheeses, the Explorer diet kept yogurt as SFs and of course the pecorinos, parmesan, romanos and others sharing that spot.  It brought Riccota and paneer from black dots to benes (I can eat them OK), quark from black dot to neutral (may try it) and brought Mozarella from avoid to bene!!!   It still keeps Kefir in the black dots (thanks for that, it is my trouble dairy!!) ... So, spot on on the dairy department, except I have indian buffalo milk as bene, where do I get that here?  Ahh, I even have sour cream and string cheese in neutrals ...

Live foods are 5 times a week now and fruit still 3 times and I have enough choices of my taste there ...

So, my 'exploring escapade' has started, full swing.  As usual I will be concentrating in the diamonds and benes, but, at least at the begining, until some of my food supplies get used, I may also be using some neutrals (that used to be Teacher's benes and are still in my pantry and fridge) ...

Stopped the Teacher 3 pack and will replace them with the GT4 3 pack when it gets here (a few more days on from NZ) ...

All other supps I have should be OK for all GTs ...

I have a good feeling about this ...

Christina, what made you want to change to Explorer?  Thought that you were doing so well before.  Have read that some went on Explorer initially to detox or clear out before going to their original type.  

As an 'unmistakable' Explorer, I am quite curious

I have been very compliant on Teacher diet for six months or more now!!!  three good months on the warrior diet before!! and my weight still platteauing, not moving ...

Looking back in some December posts, I tend to lose weight when I did heavy work out at the gym ... so, gently exercising does not seem to help me, Explorers need to sweat it out ...

Although compliant, I tend to stick to comfort foods like peanut butter and dates when under stressed ... Maybe a bit more animal protein may help me control that here ...

I just completed details of my past, like suffering terrible period pains and PMS particularly when not eating well ... having problems with Iron anaemic at different stages,  even some blackouts ... did not want to bring these things out, but they are relevant to my body, i suppose ... So, I had to rethink my SwamiX ... just filling in the blanks ...

Explorer could be the missing link ... at least I can compare it to the others better ...

I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to try it Christina     In your shoes I may do the same ...but I have not had a weight problem and have always had some muscle so cannot relate in that regard but instead have had many health issues and still do and think that I always will     I guess swarmi is more individualistic than catagorical

Cristina - I'm excited to hear where your exploration takes you  

Indian buffalo milk is a bene for me too - luckily I can buy it here in the UK!  Have decided to stick with my home-made almond milk though for the most part - easier to get (the buffalo milk is only in the shop on certain days) and cheaper too (buff milk is £2.99 a pint  ).

Can't wait to see how the adjustments to my Swami pan out too.

Exciting times Cristina!!

Exciting eh??!! be interested to see what a difference this makes Good luck.. Oh btw not sure if it would effect you in the same way as they would me... but I am cutting out high glycemic index food & just so you know dates are way high maybe they have been holding your weight loss back?  Especially as you say they are your comfort food??!!

Thank you Shells, Andy, Possum and Lola ...

Poss ... they were part of my emergency kit, when going out shopping or to places where I was either rushed for a meal or with not suitable alternatives available ... my sugars and proteins were always taken care of with a handful of walnuts, dates, pumpkin seeds, goji berries ..., also featuring on my granola day breakfasts ...  I did not mean to imply I was eating them by the handful all the time ...   ... But, you may still have a point ... if not really right for me ... no matter how many ... they will interfere with my weight loss at least ...  

we will soon see ...

Andy, nearly 3 pounds a pint (about half a litre for us)!!! that is a lot of money ...    how did you find it, taste wise? I also think I will stick with either my almond or soy milk, they are still benes for me ...

Shells, you having health issues goes with my Swami opting for Explorer lifestyle when I feed past health issues ... hopefully as an indicative that it is the best alternative to provide healing in those areas, or to keep those areas under control ...

How long have you been on this explorer lifestyle ... it must somehow be helping you too, although health challenges still there ... Hope you find total healing soon ....

Lola, you keep that beating tuned in for me too please ...

Cristina, indeed the buffalo milk is expensive at that price.  It's actually quite nice - a bit like full cream cows milk, but slightly sweeter.  Certainly not nice enough for me to bother at the price though.  Besides, there's something rewarding about making your own (MYO) milk that I enjoy.  Of course, using all the by- products from the almond milk making (water for the plants, dried out meal for recipes) makes it really worth while - I can get raw almonds for £7/kilo which is great considering that (one kilo) will produce about 6 1/2 pints of almond milk, 800g almond flour/meal, and about 5 litres of almond water for the plants    It's a no-brainer as my Mum used to say

agree!!! It does not keep well, so it forces us to make enough for the day and ensure freshness to take full advantage of nutrient value ...  

How long do you keep yours ... ?

Absolutely Cristina!

I only make up about 750 ml of almond milk a day - one cup of soaked raw almonds to 3 cups water.  This usually lasts just over 24 hours before it's gone.  I believe that it will keep for up to 4 days - but I'd rather make less daily and have it fresh.

How about you?

just enough for the day too ...  I was curious about your bulk qty, thought you may have some secret way of keeping it longer ...  , but like I said before and you also agree, it is better to keep on making it on a need basis ... BTW, I think the few times I had some left over for more than two days, by the third day it was unedible ... yes, daily fresh is yummier ...

On looking further, I apologize for the error...  I saw some information about personality and assumed it was there for all...  I guess we will have to wait for Christina to post the real answer.  It may be something she gleaned from SWAMI...

The information comes from using Swami.  That is the way Swami has identified the different personality traits in the results page.  Once a Genotype is determined, SwamiX will then list in the results page the percentage for that genotype and what traits in your data makes that genotype.  

For explorer it listed each in INFP like this:

Strength Testing, Second Pass
Characteristic A subgroup (A2) /Characteristic of Explorer.
History suggestive of GenoType (mennorhagia) /Characteristic of Explorer.
Lab report suggestive of GenoType (anemia) /Characteristic of Explorer.
MBI EI(I) Attitude suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Explorer.
MBI JP(P) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Explorer.
MBI SN(N) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Explorer.
MBI TF(F) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Explorer.
Ridge patterns asymmetrical to blood group /Characteristic of Explorer.

While my Teacher Xwami report had something like this:

Strength Testing, Second Pass
 Characteristic A subgroup (A2) /Characteristic of Teacher.
 MBI EI(I) Attitude suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Teacher.
 MBI TF(F) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Teacher.

As you can see the reports only lists the characteristics that it finds relevant for that GT.  So, being Ntuitive and Perceptive is not recognized by Swami as being a Teacher trait, but a Explorer trait ...

That is how I draw my conclusions ... Hope this makes it clear for everyone ... it is just a game of deductions ...

Best of luck Cristina!
I will be observing closely because of my own suspicions about being a teacher.
The only real hallmarks I have are the visible tendons, short legs and long torso.
My jaw is wide angle(almond), 8 arch fingerprints and both ring fingers are longer than index.
I will be getting SWAMI done soon then go from there.

I have not touched my supps for a couple of days now!!!  I will definately make the effort of having Polyflora, Deflect, Clearcal and calm focus pack with dinner tonight!!!

I have had a couple of late nights, need to get my sleep / awake pattern back to sleeping more hours ... easily done!!

Cooked turkey broth yesterday and used some of it on a lentil stir fried.  Lunch time today was rice and turkey stir fry (different vegies and spices combo).

tonight DD is cooking a roast lamb, first try for me in quite a while!!!  

My turkey protein serves above had been very small, I rather have less in more meals than my whole portion in the one meal ...

I have this burst of energy!! Is the protein influencing this? or are there any other enviromental, diet changes that affects me this way?  or is it the pop music luring me to keep on dancing ...  

I am meant to de-emphasize coffee, but I think i had 3 small cups today!!! hubby keeps on asking for them!!! got to break that habit .....
