BTD Forums  /  SWAMI Xpress  /  Swami Program easier???
Posted by: YouDa1, Saturday, August 8, 2009, 1:24am
Can you tell me if the Swami program is EASIER to figure out what you are than the process that you have to go through when using the GTD book. I really think the measuring parts are very confusing and people can be off a few inches putting them into a different category. Example....when measuring my torso, where do I start to measure? Starting under my armpit down to my waist? etc. I have no idea so I guessed on my measurements. I was wondering if the SWAMI program has you doing the same thing or is it ALOT easier? Thanks for the help.

you still have to give swami your right measurements....
check out the videos and read the book....
instructions on how to measure are very clear and precise.

You might want to check out this thread about guessing. It's not the scientific
way to determine your genotype.

I would think the answer to your question would be a "no"....The measurements
are required to be exact when you enter them into SWAMI.  THe only easy part is that once all data is entered you wind up getting a customized diet, including
geno harmonic food combinations and menu planning based on your specific
foods.

If the book confused you, Lola linked you to very good youtube videos which
can be very helpful as they're very explicit and clear.....and it might help to enlist a friend or anyone who is available to help you measure.

Results on SWAMI will only be as good as the information you enter...so there
cannot be any guessing of measurements. SWAMI will determine the right genotype
for you based on your (accurate) measurements...and will further customize your diet by taking into account the health issues of family members.

I can't say enough about the wonders of getting a SWAMI but there are no short cuts here for measuring..  Precise measuring will insure you input the correct data and wind up on the right diet.

Trust me on this..I followed the wrong diet for 18 months due to sloppy measuring.

The GTD never stated HOW or WHERE to start measuring your torso. Do I measure from my armpit to my waist or from my shoulder to my waist? It would be nice to know the actual spots to measure from. Thanks for the help as I want to make sure that the SWAMI is a bit more detailed than the GTD book before I purchase it otherwise it would be a waste of money to people who aren't given correct information for accurate measurement and then end up following a plan not designed for them. Just need some help understanding it all. Thanks

Torso is Top of head to seat.

Point 4 on Page 59

But the video did not show how to measure the torso. Do you get the torso measurements when you subtract your leg length from your height than that would equal torso height? Very confusing!!!

Not really, it is simple addition and subtraction.

Yes you get torso from Overall height - Leg length = Torso Length

In the book, pages 58-59, you determine your sitting height and then subtract the chair height from from the sitting height. That give you your torso length. Then, the leg length is calculated by subtracting the torso length from your standing height.

This is the same procedure as is given on the video.

The procedure of determing torso length by meausring sitting height and subtracting chair height is demonstrated between 1 minute 53 seconds and 2 minutes 48 seconds on the video.

You can also sit on the floor, if that would be easier. You just got to make sure your sit bones are on it and you are upright. Best to have knees bent or you might tilt pelvis.
