Looking on the recent updates on TYPEBase,i see it includes now the updated rating of foods for BTD and GENO,which makes me think what happens to our personal swami,i assume their result was made using the old rates of foods,therefore swami need to re-run with the updated rates? Example,i see foods like garlic,ginger,pecans,tomatoes now been neutral and/or beneficial for my blood type and both my largest % genotypes,while in the swami I made 6 months ago are avoids.

Dr D'Adamo has been hard at work on the new book and the tweaks to the website. To the best of my knowledge hasn't been working on SWAMI lately.

The updated TypeBase includes the foods that have been included in Genotype and SWAMI for several years. For quite some time, he was "done with" the Blood Type Diet and didn't add to it at all, while he was working on the  GTD book and then the SWAMI software.

When SWAMI gets updated, we'll here about it. This forum will no longer be here, but he'll likely update on FaceBook, on his blog (which will remain on this website) and the Personalized  Living online newsletter, which is available via email subscription as well as accessible online directly.

Well I would dream about the new forum being connected to this site somehow and Dr. D being a member so we could keep up with all that is happening here!    FB - bah humbug.  (sorry FB lovers but I'm a business owner and from my experience, there is NOTHING like the forum.. FB does not cut it unless you are paying and then it's still a poop shoot).

I'm sure Dr D will be invited to the new forum. Whether or not he chooses to join is up to him.

Yes but just think,swami results are generated by combinations of BTD and GENO diets using,to my understanding,our highest %genotypes  and bloodtype food ratings .Since rates in BTD have changed (not sure about if GENO also have changed,if someone knows the rating can check the database and tell us),then some food ratings in our swami are outdated,like the ones i've found in mine.
My way of thinking is,a food which is neutral and or beneficial for blood type and for all our % of genotypes (in my case gatherer,explorer and hunter) has to become atleast neutral  in swami.Correct?

The SWAMI ratings are current and should be used, if you have a SWAMI.

The ratings in the updated edition of Eat Right for Your Type differ from old editions of Eat Right for Your Type.  This is primarily because old editions of Eat Right for Your Type had rating values that blended secretor and nonsecretor ratings.  The updated edition only contains secretor values.

SWAMI has always contained both secretor and nonsecretor blood type values.  Even if you did not enter a secretor status, a probable secretor status was calculated for you and the appropriate blood type ratings were used.

The secretor values in SWAMI and the secretor values in the new EAT Right Book are the same.  There may be a few exceptions, but I have not found them.

Most new blood type food ratings are in fact ratings that were already in SWAMI. These blood type ratings were already in SWAMI and used to calculate SWAMI ratings of foods.  

There are few new food and beverages that are not currently in SWAMI, but are in the new type base. This is mostly from splitting existing food (food to food and butter or food to food and juice).  

The few actual new food and beverages would require genotype ratings and several hundred other values before they could be used in SWAMI.




So I am not expecting any significant changes to SWAMI as a result of publishing the updated Eat Right book.

In particular, ratings of existing foods will not change because of the updated Eat Right book

The rating for GenoType in typebase should match those in the book. The same GenoType ratings as in the book and the new typebase are used in SWAMI.

I found in the updated database some foods that were categorised as avoids in the swami I did in summertime, to be marked as neutrals or beneficial for my blood type,my secretor and all my genotypes now,this means those foods rating will change if someone would re-run the swami for me and i can eat them? I don't have swami to run it myself.

1) None of my SWAMI show evidence of changes in food values as result of the new book. I am a practitioner so I have SWAMI for others not just myself. Rerunning there SWAMIs show no changes!

If we were to rerun your SWAMI without changing other entries on your data intake form, we would get the same results as when it was ran last summer.

A SWAMI diet is not just an average of GenoType and blood type values.  Your health conditions and other data entered into SWAMI may cause foods to be rated better or worse than the blood type values.

If SWAMI just repeated you blood type values, there would be no point to do it!!

If you have SWAMI, you should use the values from it, and ignore all values from the books and all values from this web site.

SWAMI diets are ratings for your individual needs.  Ratings from the book are general for everyone with that blood type and ignore your individual values.

Did swami software got updated with the latest changes in blood type and genotype food rates ?If it hasn't been updated yet,it will not show different results for sure,does it?

A SWAMI diet is not just an average of GenoType and blood type values.  Your health conditions and other data entered into SWAMI may cause foods to be rated better or worse than the blood type values.

I don't have any health issues at all,i have no family history with any health problem,i don't take any medecine,so i am guessing swami decided for the foods rating according to BTD and GENO diets for weight loss.Foods like tomatoes,garlic and ginger that were categorised as avoids,were at that time avoids for one of my 3 genotypes? (Gatherer,explorer,hunter)? i doubt they were avoids because they cause weight gain..?

SWAMI already had the current blood type ratings for secretors and nonsecretors.

There was no need to update it.

The old Eat Right book used values that combined secretor and nonsecretor  values for their ratings.

The updated Eat Right for Your Type book  uses secretor ratings only.  These are the same secretor ratings that were in SWAMI.

SWAMI is concerned with many other things than weight loss.  So  I would not assume ratings for a food is simply based on how the food would affect weight loss.

Quoted Text
I don't have any health issues at all,i have no family history with any health problem,i don't take any medicine


I do not know what was entered for values like ethnicity, caffeine sensitivity, finger print patterns, Limb lengths, .... All these data elements would have been used to get an indication of how likely you were to develop health conditions and  what foods could you eat to prevent ones you were prone to develop.


There were also other questions that would have been entered and affected results.

Such as which of these do you want SWAMI to emphasize:
Enhance Global Methylation: This setting will emphasize food combinations that enhance methylation reactions
Enhance Histone Function:This setting will emphasize food combinations that enhance histone deacetylase.
Enhance AGE Removal: This setting will emphasize food combinations which enhance glycation end-product removal.
Ubiquitinylation: This setting will emphasize food combinations which enhance removal of cellular debris ubiquinine pathway and the Golgi apparatus.

Answer to these questions affect SWAMI results.

There is a lot more involved in SWAMI food rating  than simply averaging Blood Type with GenoType or averaging different GenoType values.

The T5 values are the same data as the starting values for SWAMI. While they do not change in T5, in SWAMI they can change quite dramatically.

What?  I just bought the new book and I'm a nonnie.  Will I be able to use it or should I cancel the order?

There's lots of great information in the new book- but you won't be able to use the food lists in it.

Non secretor values are in the Live Right for your Type Book.  There are foods (mostly beverages) in the updated East Right book that are not in Live Right book.

People with SWAMI should ignore all values in all books and use the ratings in SWAMI.

For SWAMI users the books provide an excellent explanation of how your body works and how diet affects your health.

Since SWAMI has already customized your diet for your individual health needs, you would want to ignore more general ratings based only on blood type.

I have both of the old books, live right and eat right.  I bought the new book mostly for the reasons why - why cabbage is an avoid but broccoli and kale are diamonds.   Will the new book give me any more insight into those reasons than the old one?  

I need to know why in order to follow my SWAMI.

Even though many of the recommendations have been justified by (extensive) research, and that should be enough for me to follow all the recommendations, I still need to know.

Gives you new material on how the diet works and how to apply the diet principles.

Like the earlier edition of the Eat Right book, you will only occasionally find the specific reason why food X rates well and food Y rates less well.
