I seem to be a Teacher from what I can gather from reading the book the first time through. Anyone else out there find they are A-nons and Teachers?

My husband is a 'teacher'.  He has not had his secretor status done, though.  He does not want to be a teacher.  He wants to be a hunter.  Not much chance of him changing.  tee hee.  

I wish I could make him want to follow either the BTD or the GTD.  Any suggestions for the Teacher diet?

Hey there. Snowy in Denver as it is in Ottawa? Did you go through the whole rigamarole? I checked out my hands, my A+ non status and a couple of other indicators, but I didnt do any measuring or fingerprints. Both my ring fingers are longer than my index fingers and my hands are symmetrical

We had back-to-back snows last week so I still have about 10 inches in my front yard.  Warm for the next few days though so it will probably be melting big time.

I did all the measurements plus the strength charts.  I wasn't happy about being a Teacher.  I wanted to be a Warrior in the worse way but no luck.  Oh well, to quote Popeye, "I yam what I yam".   ;D

did you find it was your hand results or leg results that tipped the balance?

What's the advantage in being a warrior besides being the same as Dr. D?  None of the types will please us all!
If it's not favorite foods, it is convenience or expense that hinders us. I hope you can enjoy your GT & soon tell us of a wonderful advantage!!!!

PS For an O, all that meat is expensive & not eating wheat or corn, which are hidden in so many foods, is a royal pain.

I did the book and the online calculator - all except the taster test.

It was the leg lengths.  That was much more definite than the finger measurements and no matter how I tried, I couldn't get my lower leg to grow.  ;D

I prefer the Warrior foods so that's why I was hoping I would end up there.  Oh well, on to Teacherhood!

I havent quite started the teacher diet totally but I have started making changes. I have started using almond milk when possible and avoiding rice milk. I had cabbage for the first time in a while and it was great. I tried eating less meat but its not easy with 3 Genotypes and 4 blood types in my family. Once I start my new job I will be able to control my diet a little better to follow the guidelines more closely.

*gasp* I might be able to have cabbage again?  Yippee!

I just want to share that I gave the book to my A friend who feels the BTD has saved her life or at least extended it.
  She easily tested as a teacher (secretor status not relevant in her measurements)& is going to go gung ho into 'diamonds'!
She says she is not the type to go on message boards, but I want to share how wonderful it is that she was helped by BTD & how we feel she will be helped even more by GTD!
So thanks from this old O on behalf of an A!

DH is an A nonnie Teacher...like me.  (The cook in me says, "Hooray!")  We just did his measurements today.  

It has been a real paradigm shift for me.  It has taken a couple of weeks to open up to the idea that celery is a toxin and all the cheeses that we avoided before could now be superfoods.  I wrote all the foods out by hand just to make myself familiar with each one.

I wrote out the list too and I paid special attention to the "dosages" that is the recommended quantity of such fatty things as havarti cheese and eggs. Since I started exercising frequently and weight lifting I am struck by how my body was craving things like eggs and meat. I often make a smoothyout of egg whites and supplement with a real egg several times a week.

I was also struck by how the exercise quotient was upped compared to a standard A.  

And one other thing that amazes me was how accurate Dr. D was in terms of the psychological profile of the Teacher. Got me down to a tee, and the book reminded me of how alert we have to be to getting stressed. Kinda sneaks up on ya don't it?

Luckily I always have loved turkey.

I too, am an A nonnie teacher.  Kind of sad about the scallops and mussels but I did have parrot fish when I lived in Hawaii and it was good.  A friend speared one and really it looked too beautiful to eat but I ate it anyway. When it was legal to feed the fish while snorkeling in Hawaii, the parrot fish were aggressive and would come up and bite you to get the food.  My aunt put her fish food in her bikini top as she snorkeled out to the reef and was not happy about where the parrot fish bit her. :o

Carrots as a super food is interesting.  When ever I had those spring rolls from Wild Oats with raw veggies (mostly carrots)in them I felt good. Now I have noticed a couple of carrots energize me.

Try juicing them.  Wow.  Two or three carrots don't make a whole lot of juice but they give you a whole lot of energy.  Then take the pulp and make millet/carrot muffins.  Good stuff.

No. Nasty rumor. Maybe you were looking under carbohydrates. It's listed as a toxin for teachers under live foods on pg. 229.

wow, time to read the fine print! pg 229.-corn, popcorn; corn is not on the superfoods or toxins list (neutral?) and pg 228.- corn, cornmeal, polenta is black dot/limit. what do you all think? i have dearly missed cornbread and cornbread dressing (especially thanksgiving). what a treat to add occasionally...

So you think corn,popcorn only refers to popcorn.  Hmmmmm

I found out I was a Teacher.  When reading the book, I thought I could of been the teacher or the Nomad.  I had more the character traights of the Nomad, like the square jaw, the loop finger prints.  But I'm seeing that the teacher fits me to a "T".  I love the fact that I can have all those delicious cheeses back in my diet!! And yes, I can have cabbage back.  It makes sense to me now that I'm thinking about it.  These are foods I loved when I was a child. How interesting.  I am actually finding I feel a whole lot better, more balanced since I have fine tuned my diet to the Genotype.
