I'm starting for the first time, have researched everything, but have some questions.

1) after doing intermediate genotype testing, I was almost equally warrior as I was
Gatherer. I'm going with warrior because of my really long legs, insatiable appetite as
Young but always stick thin. I'm 26 and its so caught up with me. But I have almost a square
Jaw and not so much elongated head. My bio family has so much heart disease. Anyways
Went with warrior because it made so much sense. Is this wrong?

2) as a warrior, should I avoid gluten? Or wheat? I think it's contradicting.

3) is there an updated food list somewhere other than the book?

Thanks friends :)

FYI,
knowing your blood type only use the advanced calculator in the book
less confusion that way

if interested
More information on SWAMI, and it will compute your genotype for you:

find out how food rates for you individually, given your personal variables.

As a type A you can only be a Warrior, Teacher, or Explorer. Mostly O's and some B's are Gatherer. The way you described yourself, you sound like a combination of Warrior and Teacher.

Wheat consumption varies among type A's as well as other forms of gluten. How many horizontal white lines you have on your fingerprints would be a good indication of whether or not you can handle wheat/gluten. The more white lines, the more damaged your gut lining is.

As Lola recommended, if you can afford SWAMI (about $70), it will not only compute your genotype but it will also factor in so much more information than the genotype diet book will.

I had a somewhat similar situation. The book calculated me as an Explorer, but I knew I had Warrior and Teacher characteristics. The first time I ran my SWAMI I was calculated as a 40% Warrior. The 2nd time I added a little more information in the optional fields and it calculated me as a 39%. Then again this weekend I ran it a 3rd time adding a bit more info and changing a previous optional field and it came back as a 38% Teacher.

Lots of us are "mutts" and if you're serious about this diet and lifestyle change then I wouldn't wait any longer to get a SWAMI. Most people find it more than worth the cost.

Good luck!

I bought it...I guess we'll see!

Glad to hear you made the purchase. The Meyers-Briggs personality test is an optional field, but could be very indicative of your genotype. There is a place on the website you can take the assessment. Be careful to take your time because you have to choose between two columns of personality traits and it may not be easy choosing one column over the other. I took the Meyers-Briggs test the first time on  my 2nd SWAMI run and then decided before running it the 3rd time to take the test again more slowly and carefully as I had a feeling I may have rushed the test the first time around. I did end up changing the results in my SWAMI as I felt like the latter was a more accurate result. Other than that one change, I added one small check to my family history as my mother was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure. Between those two changes I was recalculated as a Teacher when previously calculated as a Warrior and I tend to think the Meyers-Briggs test results had more to do with it than the additional checkmark in family history.  I had more food changes than I expected probably due to the change in dominant genotype, some for the better and some for the worse.

A question I forgot to ask: since I was adopted, I only know a few things about medical history (that every uncle I've had died before 40 with heart attack, and pulmonary problems.) if I do not know about cancer or diabetes or anything like that, how should I answer the questions? Is this something I really should contact bio mom about again? And, answering questions like high blood pressure and cholesterol in family, should I assume they had those things given the heart? Or no ?

Thanks

Vicki

Btw I'm 26, 6'1, 187 lbs, athletic but tons of belly weight (Always carried it there even growing up when i was 6'0 in middle and highschool but only 127 lbs and ate like a horse) Idk if that helps anyone

Assume nothing is the best policy. Contacting your bio mom would be best if that is available to you.

Only answer affirmative to those things that you can verify.

It isn't necessary to know family history in detail to complete your SWAMI profile. There are optional and required fields, meaning that required fields involve physical measurements, age, and identifying fingerprint patterns. However,the more information you can give your SWAMI, the more accurate its assessment will be.

I had asked a similar question a while ago since my kids are all adopted and my twin sons are old enough to get a SWAMI if they each want one. We have ZERO medical history on them and I wondered if it would be worth getting them each SWAMI's in the future. I believe it would be worth it for them because there is still plenty other informational data to submit before running a SWAMI. If communication with your birth mother is awkward or stressful, then you may not want to find out more family history. On the other hand, if you have a good relationship with her and you explain to her why you want to know these things, then I think it would be in your best interest to gather as much info as you can on family history. A history of heart disease and early death is something to take seriously.

Your height and your mid-section body fat sounds very classic Warrior. However, if your SWAMI calculates you with a smaller percentage as a Warrior, say 35-45%, then that means you have a moderate association with the Warrior genotype.

Hi,
Don't worry, women are more protected against heart diease with our estrogen..that is until we go into menopause..  :) then the risk goes up.  Your height sure sounds like you're a Warrior. We are tall. I was 5'7". I shrunk an inch from old age. . :)

I got my SWAMI in! Yep, I'm a Warrior...and seems like I only lost the ability to eat the foods I thought as a generic Warrior. Blah. Oh well
