Why is red snapper in 17 (seventeen!) of my Geno Harmonic Foods?

It's classed as a neutral.

Cod, which is classed as a diamond, is in none of the Geno Harmonic Foods.

Red snapper is wild-caught (I prefer not to eat farmed fish) but comes primarily from the Gulf of Mexico and I have concerns about the BP oil spill.

Mullet, also a neutral, and Wolf fish, a diamond, are listed whenever red snapper is but I have never seen them for sale here.  

Can I use cod instead?

it clearly states that genoharmonics do not necessarily appear in the superfood column, thus the complexity

I have looked through my SWAMI three times and did not find any statement of that nature.  Here's all it says:
Quoted Text
Enhancing Broad Genotrophic Effects

Geno Harmonic Foods are unique combinations of certain foods which SWAMI Xpress has determined will yield the maximum epigenetic enhancement. The epigenic value of the food is indicated by its star value, from exceptional () to very good (). Simply reference a food you will be using at the left, and try to combine it with Geno Harmonic foods that are listed to the right.

Barb, these Geno-Harmonic food relationships emphasize superbeneficial foods for your blood type and GenoType which contain nutrients that enhance the overall epigenetic health of the body. (which increases the fidelity of your gene's ability to make good quality copies of itself). Because the loss of gene fidelity is a major hallmark of aging cells, using these food combinations will have maximium personalized anti-aging effects in your body. So these Geno-Harmonic food combinations will also exert cancer-protective effects in your body as well. You can learn more about these epigenetic functions by reading Chapter II A World of Limitless Potential, pages 24-26 and Chapter III GenoType Whys and Wherefores, pages 28-52 in The GenoType Diet.

I just called all the local fish mongers and none of them can get mullet, wolf fish, turbot or herring.  Smelt might be available by special order.  

They can special order red snapper caught in the Gulf of Mexico but Dr. D cautions against contaminated fish and that area is not yet clean enough for me.

The fish on my superfoods list are readily available but none of them are in the genoharmonic combinations...

I'm also wondering why so many of my genoharmonic foods require that I combine starch (beans) with protein (fish), something that the GTD clearly states that I should avoid.

Quoted Text
8. Try not to combine starches and proteins.  Good food combining (eating meats with high-fiber vegetables and carbohydrates by themselves) enhances the transit time of the meal through the gut, which lowers the demands on the immune cells that line the digestive tract.  Decreasing the workload of the immune system in the gut increases its ability to function efficiently, which decreases inflammation.  Don't stress over it, but if the dinner plate looks like good food combining, smile and pat yourself on the back.  p. 183 GTD

Is fish not a protein?

It looks to me like I will not be able to use any of my 5-star genoharmonic combinations unless I can use sole, flounder, or halibut instead of turbot.    

Of the rest, which are all 3-star, there are a few I could manage.

Presumably because it contains something that interacts well in geno-harmonic combination with the foods suggested in combination.

If Cod had the same (nutrient feature) then it would be on your GH list as well.

The genoharmonic combinations themselves create "super-beneficial foods" because of the way those foods interact with one another. Lots of neutral foods combine with other foods to great these "super-beneficial combinations."

Some beneficial or diamond foods don't have any properties that combine with other foods to create these genoharmonic combinations. Maybe it's because they already contain every nutrient needed for absorption and healing, or maybe it's because no other foods really "blend" with it in the same way.

We call mullet "Biloxi Bacon". They are a bottom feeding fish with a small mouth. They are usually caught in cast nets at night. The roe is removed and sold seperately(it's a Japanese favorite) and the remaining fish sold in local markets. It is traditionally either cornmeal coated and fried or smoked with hot spices but I have had it several other ways.

I noticed this too! I try to follow the food combining rules as well, and would like an answer for this too. Anybody know what Dr. D would say about this?

Is fish not a protein?

For the purposes of GTD, beans are vegetable proteins, not starches...  Granted, there is some starch content, but less percentage than with grains, which are the Carbohydrates...

From an earlier quote in this thread, emphasis mine:
