BTD Forums  /  SWAMI Xpress  /  SWAMI GTD Food Synaposis's
Posted by: DoS, Tuesday, September 15, 2009, 4:24am
Hello everyone. I was wondering if there is somewhere to view the food synopsis's for each GTD that is accompanied by SWAMI. For example I can look at the descriptions for Teacher, Explorer, and Warrior because I am blood type A so SWAMI will allow me to view them (by changing GTD manually). However I would like to educate myself further on some reasoning for different foods associated with different GTD's.

Example. For Teacher I know the cheeses can be useful for low overgrowth bacteria,and preventing the wrong bacteria from absorbing carbohydrates. For the Explorer the cheeses are in main part whey containing cheeses because whey tends to stimulate insulin response, for them.

I just want to read the synaposis's for the other GTD's on these. Perhaps someone who is Type B/AB and O is interested as well and we could capture the information to send to each other.

Note: I am not suggesting in anyway that we swap food list information or anything like that, this is educational purposes of understanding benefits of foods for different people. I recognized SWAMI is completely individualized, and that is why it is affective, I just want to further my understanding. I also realize this does not explain individual foods but it does gives a basic idea of what kind of intention different food has for different people.

The Genotype book may be a better option.  It has all the food lists for all genotypes, plus all the suplements for each with explanations.  Swami it is too individualised, it adapts the individual genotype to help with the specific conditions for the individual being swamied.

In SWAMI there is huge number of possible GenoType combinations. There might be billions (I do not remember the actual number) of possible diets with SWAMI.  There would be no way to sit down and examine all the different diets possible with SWAMI.

So for instance my last Teacher SWAMI cheese list was Superfood-Manchego Cheese and Neutral are Feta Cheese, Gorgonzola Cheese, Gouda Cheese, Muenster Cheese, Parmesan Cheese, Provolone Cheese, Romano Cheese. Everything other cheese is best avoided.  My guess is your list is different.

I have to point this out but... you two are telling me exactly what I just told you what I am not concerned about. I do not care about individual diets. The synopsis for every SWAMI of whatever GTD type is the same for the different food categories.

Read the definition of synopsis. Wait here I will post example.

Sorry, I totally missed what you wanted.

Some synopses are quoted in other SWAMI threads. For instance, the bug report thread:

Dr D would have to write another book!!! ;)

That would be true if it were for the individual food. Again I am asking for the synopsis's of the food categories for the different GTDs. Essentially there is six GTD's and 13 categories under each. That works out to probably 12 pages worth of stuff.

If Dr. D did write a book about all the individual food based on how it was met in flow chart's for different GenoTypes etc... I am sure it would be a large book and purchased by me as soon as possible. I am planning on if possible becoming a Master Associate, but I am always going to want to be understanding more.

Yes I have seen that, but I meant if a book came out that explained the scores of how everything made it through the Flow Charts. Essentially it would be an encyclopedia of food in reference to the GTD. It does not exists yet, may never, but whatever. I just want a general idea of what each food category is doing for each GTD, at the moment.

@ Destroyer

I have some of the food lists typed up for people. I had to do one for my mom, who is a Gatherer like me, and for my husband and his family (all B pos Nomads). SO I have those two lists in excel spreadsheets. I can e-mail them to you if you want, I don't know how much help that's going to be unless you are familiar with the issues that each type has, as to why these foods are good.

Walk in Peace and Power

You see I am not asking for the lists of food at all. Please re-read everything and look at the picture. As far as I know the information is only available via SWAMI. Again it does have nothing to do with the amounts and the individualized food choices for anyone' SWAMI. It is only a paragraph or so about the general idea behind the food category's benefit to that GTD.

Is this sort of what you are looking for? (see page 3 of

Quoted Text
...Because they can overreact to mycotoxins, Explorer GenoTypes should avoid the so-called “blue” category of cheeses: Gorgonzola, Limburger, Stilton, Roquefort, produced by inoculating loosely pressed curds with Penicillium roqueforti or Penicillium glaucum molds.

Quoted Text
GT3 Teacher choices are designed to be low in ingredients that can contribute to malabsorption and bacterial overgrowth including complex sugars, disaccharides and polysaccharides and chitinase containing foods. Foods also high in pesticides or containing known genetically modified components or molds are also not included. The superb choices are high in fiber, lignans, isoflavones, antioxidants (lycopene, phytofluene, quercetin flavonoids), Vitamin C, folate, detoxifying agents (glucosinolates and isothiocyanates and plant phytochemicals (organosulfur compounds, saponins, phytosterols and monterpenes).

Quoted Text
GT5 Warrior plant proteins are known to be high in lignans and phytosterols. Lignans have been shown to increase steroid efficiency and have antioxidant activities. They also have anti-carcinogenic, anti-atherogenic and anti-diabetic activities. Phytosterols have cholesterol and immune modulating activity. Other antioxidants, such as the isoflavones are significant epigenetic factors, having powerful silencing and activating effects on genes. Soy is an especially good food for GT5 Warrior; it is rich in isoflavone antioxidants, which help maintain the integrity of the Mu genotype DNA. It also has other unique anticancer components as well. You may read negative things about soy, but if you are a Warior, it’s a good food.

The Warrior exercise protocol is designed to increase muscle growth, develop and strengthen the cardiovascular system and offset the Warrior’s tendency to rapid aging. Warrior GenoTypes do best with stretching and lengthening exercises that also have a resistance component to them. Try to exercise for 30-40 minutes at least five days per week. Be sure to do warm-up stretching for five minutes before you begin, and cool down with stretching for five minutes after you’ve finished. Depending on you current level of physical conditioning, choose from the following list of exercises:

Warriors are in common distribution in Africans, both New World and Old World and not unfrequent in New World Hispanic populations. The GenoType is uncommon in Asians, but rates appear to be climbing, as the nutritional value of the average Asian diet improves.

That is sort of, but those quoted and in the thread are from various places in the SWAMI report. I am being pretty particular because I care much less about the reasons to avoid certain foods and much more why some should be eaten. If you look at my example it will be instantly clear.

I suppose you could collect these sections from each genotype.

Here are my Warrior "read meat" & "poultry" explanations:

GT5 'Warrior' (Blood Group A Secretor Status Unknown)
Food choices emphasizing hybridized BTD and GTD values

In general, red meats are not healthful food choices for GT5 Warriors. They increase inflammation on the artery walls,
which can lead to atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease.


GT5 'Warrior' (Blood Group A Secretor Status Unknown)
Food choices emphasizing hybridized BTD and GTD values

GT5 Warriors can use poultry as an occasional protein source, although they should not overemphasize it. These
domesticated species are almost universally available. They should be consumed skinless if possible. Always purchase
from reliable free-range, organic farms. In general low fat poultry is best broiled or boiled.

I have access to the warrior one :) I am blood type A!

Is this what you're looking for?  I pulled it from my Gatherer report.  I don't have time to do them now... but maybe this will help someone else clarify - or maybe I can do more later.  I pulled this from the paragraphs under each food category - just before the food list.  Anyway, let me know if this is what you're after...

GT2 'Gatherer' (Blood Group O Non-Secretor)
Food choices emphasizing hybridized BTD and GTD values

Red Meats:

GT2 Gatherers use these foods (along with the proper choice of carbohydrates) to enhance the process of building lean muscle mass, which in turn increases their metabolic rate.
