BTD Forums  /  The GenoType Diet  /  TypeBase for Genotypes?
Posted by: san j, Sunday, July 14, 2013, 7:53am
Wasn't there talk that there'd be a database for items in each food group for each Genotype, as in the book, as there's TypeBase for the 4 ABO types?

Or is that not going to happen because it's Either/Or:  ER4YT or SWAMI?

The book discusses a database that was part of a paid website sponsored by the publisher of the book.  Subscription cost was $5 per week.

A decision was made several years ago to make the contents of that site available to the public without charge.  

Some content of the site had copyright protection and could not be made available without restrictions on a website not associated with the publisher. This included the food lists. The restricted content was dropped.

The list in the book is the current list for the GenoType diet, so there is also less need to have an online version, since there are no updates at this time.

thus swami, cause gtd values should really be considered personalized as ideal

why?
because a GT like explorer for example can be any blood type actually, and to each, their own


we have so far been learning this much by now when following our GT diet guidelines

Basically, if you're following BTD, you can use one of the books, look online, or use the app for the food values. There are lots of ways to access the information.

If you're using SWAMI, it's personalized so there's no possible way to publish the data. You get access to your SWAMI from the SWAMI website, you can print it out and put it in a binder, and/or you can save it as  a PDF file to read on your computer or iPhone.

However, the GTD information is only available in the book. It's simply not available online anywhere, not for purchase and not for free. The only way to get a GTD food list on your iPhone would be to type it up yourself. There's no copyright problem if you're typing it up for personal use, but if you tried to sell the list you'd be in violation.

I don't think there's any particular reason for the lack of "computer access to the GTD list"- it just kind of happened. And since Dr D moved onto SWAMI shortly after publishing the GTD book, it was never a priority to have this information available in that form.

I personally would love it if the TypeBase contained information for all 14 "book diets" (6 genotypes plus 8 blood type/secretor status variations) but that's not currently available and there's no indication that it will be anytime soon.

The GenoType book (and thus the food lists) is available as a $14 electronic book. Formats include kindle and nook.

Don't smile too strongly tell you've tried it, I am not sure how well the book lists render on mobile device.

If they don't render well, then it might be wise of DPN to sell electronic lists of foods for each genotype.
