Quoted from Adopted4I'm wondering why you you can't get a SWAMI for your husband?
I wouldn't worry about your husbands not knowing his family history of cancer. The number of whorl fingerprints would be indication enough of his risk of future cancers. By the way, where do you live in the midwest? We live near the twin cities.
Quoted from Lolause only the advanced calculator in the book
knowing the bloodtype
if still trapped between two, swami will definitely compute the best fit
Quoted from MayflowersHi,
Warriors have a few arch finger prints that identifies them. I have two on each hand. Also a long head is indicative of a Warrior in many cases. How does he do eating a lot of dairy, like cheese? Warriors don't do well on cheese. Teachers can incorporate more cheese into their program. I can only have paneer, cottage, and farmers. If he looks at the diets, which one looks more like the way he would eat? I was drawn more to the Warrior diet before I went to see Dr. D.
He can just follow the A diet and do very well if you can't decide for now. :)
Quoted from KumarI also used the advanced calculator. Basic or intermediate calculators are meant for people who cannot use the advanced calculators and they often confuse the types. But the measurements need to be accurate to a millimeter! If your index finger is longer than the ring finger in one hand and ring finger longer in another, then your are more or less teacher type!
Teachers have shorter lower leg lengths and longer torsos than warriors.
Warriors have long faces/heads. Teachers have visible tendons on wrists(mine really pop, even on my ankle/shins).
Not all teachers have whorls...I have only arches and loops! ;)
Quoted from DoSPicture?
Give us the strength tests, measurements, health problems, and family history of health problems. The board can act like a dumb swami, if the information is pretty clear. Sometimes it is hard to tell.
Quoted from VictoriaMayflowers used to have a photo posted of herself standing with Dr. D'Adamo. The shape of both their faces are very typical Warriors, very long faces.
Junebug, I like doing the finger measurements on the palm side of the fingers, instead of down the sides of them. If you use a transparent ruler, it's much easier to be exact.
His leg lengths...bet he is a warrior. Teachers may be tall or short but their lower legs are shorter and their torsos are longer than their legs.
Ex; My O hunter hubby is 6'2" with a short torso and long legs. His lower legs look like stilts! :D now as his opposite...I have a long torso with short legs,the lower leg being the shortest. I am 5'5". When we sit down side by side, our heads are equal!!! ;D
Quoted from grey rabbitAs soon as you can, do swami! I am a Teacher like cajun and nothing at all like cajun!
I am a teacher that cannot tolerate most dairy! My swami only gives me manchego, ghee and yogurt as superfoods! ;)
I am also one of those teachers that does not tolerate much soy! I used to have a small amount of soy milk in my coffee but found out it was causing me more phlegm.
I eat tiny amounts of roasted soy nuts twice a week...thats it! :-/
Quoted from MayflowersYou mean this one?
Nice picture, Mayflowers! Good one of both of you. :)
Quoted from Spring
Ha! Amazing similarity!! (hugegrin)
Quoted from 19000I feel like a mix of the two myself (teacher and warrior) as I don't have a long head/face, I'm very short etc. but some of the stuff recommended on the Teacher diet just doesn't jive with me (such as all that dairy) so Warrior makes the most sense to me overall. Not for just that reason but it really fails to matter anyway (or so I'm told) once you start SWAMI (which I'm personally planning on doing soon). Just seems like it can get confusing otherwise (for some people). But if you don't have access to SWAMI (like I don't right now) I'd suggest just using common sense such as my example with the dairy. Listening to your body helps.

RawAwarrior, if you react so strongly to dairy, like myself, you must be lactose-intolerant Teacher. I adhere to my Teacherdiet, without all the dairy! Fits me super!
In Swami I tested Teacher allright, heavily lactose-intolerant!
