BTD Forums  /  The GenoType Diet  /  Newbee advanced results as a slim Gatherer??
Posted by: JapanDietEllen, Saturday, January 18, 2014, 2:17pm
I score 15 for Gatherer and 9 for Explorer.  0 blood. I could be obese but have never been probably because I am active and eat a Japanese diet low on carbs so I look mesomorphic but I am not good at exercise and have to force myself. Still I have a black belt in Aikido and go regularly for training at age 65. :D  

I see a lot of kidney support food in the diet.  More than weight gain, kidney weakness and constipation are my concerns. ??)

Could I still be a Gatherer?

COMPARISON of Gatherer and Explorer characteristics:

GATHERER Support detail:  Long concentrate and mental endurance,  problem solver,
revolutionary ideas, emotional swings, exercise challenged, High BMI,
, Gynic, extra cusp on first molar, almond shaped jaw, Type 0 blood

Different than gatherer:  Not obese. Only one lower leg is shorter only on one side ???, left and right ring fingers and breasts also different .
Opposite of gatherer because both ring fingers are longer than index
fingers

Unknown:  PROP??, Secretor?? estrogen levels?? (probably normal),

Total point count  15 for advanced calculation


----
Explorer similars:  Longer ring finger in women, mesomophic, spade
like incisor??? (Insisors are rounded between straight and pointed), torso longer than legs, borderline anemic, sensitive to caffeine

Total point count 8 for advanced calculation

Of course. What you want to do is use the diet that best suits you irrespective of generic descriptions.

Ideally you would use the tables in the back of the book to more accurately determine your GT. Or do a SWAMI (even better).

If the tables in the back require that you obtain additional information (such as secretor status) to make a determination then it is up to you to either go with what you currently know or to try to improve your knowledge.

If you turn out to be an Explorer or think that you may be one, I highly recommend going the SWAMI route.

I just read in the last section of charts in the genotype book.  I am certainly a gatherer according to those charts regardless of my secretion reactions.  This is because in either case, I am a gatherer.  

I don't need to lose weight.  I want to stop being constipated and support my kidney and immune system.  I think I should include the black dots food since my objective is lower than people who want to lose weight or have a serious illness.  

Thanks,

I am deep into alternative medicine, so I eat all kinds of fermented foods that I make myself.  Brown Rice, Spelt and braley bread, Japanese pickles soaked in kimchi broth and another daikon rice bran pickel, my own home made miso are among the foods I prepare.  I eat meat, but avoid it in general.  Not a way to fill my stomach.  If I don't eat tofu in Japan, there is little to eat when not at home.  I just bought a large box of apples which are black dot foods to help me with making green smoothies. I grow wheat grass in my back yard and am using organic ginger and carrots to make my green smoothies.  I really don't want to throw out my plans to get out of my constipation problems.  My goal is to slim down the colon by keeping the bowels moving.  Since I have this other goal unrelated to the genotype diet, seems I should include on the black dot foods.  I may not get perfect results, but my goal is not weight loss.  I weigh 48 kg and am 155.5 cm.

Some would consider being constipated and needing kidney support as serious illness, some would not.

You might give up the black dots for a couple months and then bring them back in. But even not giving them up try to focus on eating more beneficials for best results.

Best wishes!

Low magnesium can cause constipation, and many people are low in magnesium today. Do you take any magnesium supplements? If not, you might want to start.
