I just found out I am a non-secretor...yay, so glad I know now!  I'm fine-tuning SWAMI and I have a question about wrist tendon visibility.

How visible is the Visible option?  I can see a tendon when I move my fingers.  Does that count or not?

I would say it should be visible while static.

Thanks Lola!  Doing that now!

I just thought of something else...what if I can see my tendons or wrap my fingers around my wrist because of my weight?  Do I just change SWAMI when I lose weight if I can see tendons and/or meet/overlap my wrist with my fingers?

Rest your hands palms up

See like thin elevation there? Use the other hand to feel the elevation

I also call it 'mounts and ridges' in there

My hubby is a flatty = not visible
I can see and feel them = visible

My two cents ...  :)

Thank you.  I think it is a "not visible". There isn't a difference in my SWAMI, other than I am 44% Gatherer with "not visible".

I change my Swami whenever I need to, as my measurements, metric, weight, taste, it grows with me ... it evolves with me ...

BTW, I am 20odd kgs over and I can still see my tendons ... but, we all evolve and get affected by extra weight and lectins in different ways ... you got to listen, look, feel the signals from your body and even that evolves with you as you progress in this journey of discovering and unveiling your true type ... You are doing great!!!  :)

Thanks Cristina!  I LOVE reading your journey.  I'm so happy to have my secretor status!  I feel like I can really begin now!  ;D

When I wrap my fingers around my wrist they just barely touch.  But my tendons are very visible, are they the two things that run down the middle of wrist?  Also I have a narrow space between my legs & measure out gatherer on the fingers.

You can see mine, and the are a bit outlined. In certain light they look like they are sticking out. Depending on what I have been eating you can see them farther back on my arms and they stick out farther.

My wrist size has changed some. It use to be one just touched and not much overlap, and the other like a 1/4 overlap of the end of the thumb. Now I get just about complete coverage of my fingernail on one, and full on the other. However if I eat something I should not or things get off somehow it changes. I think I could call it an overlap but I am not certain how far counts. Anyways the point is it changed over time. What does it mean for me? No idea.

I am confused...

If i tick the box that my tendons are visible I become a teacher, if not.. i become an explorer

the food values change quite a bit too

Interesting.  When I select "not visible" SWAMI puts me as 38% Gatherer category.  When I choose "visible" I'm 35% Explorer.  My tendons are "very visible" I think - the tendons are raised with my arm resting palm up, blue veins showing.  It actually kind of creeps me out.  I knew I was a cross between Gatherer & Explorer.  That's why I couldn't compute my genotype on my own.  I love SWAMI.  ♥

What would you answer if the tendons are showing only on one side? My right shows my left not.

I'm a rightie and my the tendons & veins are more pronounced on that hand than they are on my left.  But they're very visible on both.  If I were you, I'd choose "visible".  But maybe some more expert person will weigh in.  :)
