Greetings,
Firstly I do apologize if this subject has been discussed before.
I am new to this site and the Diet.  I have been studying the books for Type A,
and I cant seem to find if there is anything for avoiding arborio rice, I love Risotto especially pumpkin which is beneficial for me.
Thanks in advance.

It is rated as all white rice, I am rather confident, I too enjoy Arborio, as Carnaroli, Roma and Vialone nano the best Italia risotto rices. I have found them also left whole, brown but thw traditional risotto is a bit creamy with white rice. In a pressure cooker  6 ,  8 minutes and voila !
a bit of Ghee or butter and Parmesan and good appetite !

I love arborio rice and make risotto with it.
My swami gives me all types of rice as either super or neutral and I always considered arborio as white.

I thought Parmesan was an avoid for Type A?

I've been trying to use Mozzarella instead of Emmental, but I so miss the nutty taste!!

On the basic type A diet, you're correct. Parmesan is an avoid.  For those of us following the
genotype diet, some As will be able to eat Parmesan and many other cheeses.

Oh well, I was nearly getting hopeful....

I've done the test about which diet to go best for and it says the BTD. On the other hand in the result example of the genotype diet, Dr D explains that it just made some more research since the BTD and found out more.

So is it really either BTD or GTD, or is GTD an improved form of BTD?

Thank you.

The "best diet" is to get a SWAMI, a computer program that calculates the ideal diet just for you. It takes your measuremetns (the ones used to determine genotype in the book), your blood type, your health history and your family health history, and it computes a diet just for you, blending elements of blood type diet and genotype diet.

Instead of avoiding all the foods that most A's react to or that most Teachers react to (if you're a Teacher, I'm just picking that randomly from the possible genotypes for this example) you only have to avoid the foods that are problematic for you personally. This gives you  a wider diet than you'd get from any book. At the same time, it pinpoints the foods that are bad for you personally, so you don't accidentally ingest a food that's not so good for you, even though it's good for most  A's. Plus it targets your superfoods to emphasize and gives you "genoharmonic combinations"- foods to be eaten in combination that are especially healing for you. Those GH combinations only work when calculated on an individual level- he can't come up with those for BTD or GTD.

I still think the  GTD book is a good thing to read, so you get a better understanding of the way the diet is put together. But SWAMI will give you the most accurate diet to follow. It's still not perfect, as the human body is infinitely more complex than any computer program. Some people still need to tweak things. But it's far closer than any of the "book diets" available.

Thanks Ruthie. Yes, I can see genotype is almost a waste of time by comparison to swami, but not quite, cos I want to learn about that first. Sounds like swami is quite difficult to fill in. If you don't have all the information you need, I suppose you can still partially fill it in and it'll still work?
I'm shooting in the dark here of course, just going on what peops have said here n' there. Plus my computer is ailing - getting old, needs more ram, need a new one ideally, so running another programme might make it keel over? Probaly not I suppse.

Delightfuldeb, what a delightful name!   wow, tomatoes too! I would be in heaven for sure. Must get me a swami real soooooon.
