OK, we’ve got Day one of the working week behind us now and it’s downhill to the weekend. I work as the Supply Manager [Purchasing] for a Tasmanian Irrigation Company and have been with them for over 13 years now. One of our overseas supplies is Valmont Irrigation in Valley, Nebraska. So if you’re from Nebraska or even know someone who works at Valley say Hi from Paul in Tasmania.
Feeling really good today, energy levels are high, so look out at work.
The BTD isn’t widely known or used in Australia as far as I can ascertain. Looking on the Practitioner database it is noticeable how few Australian Practitioners there are listed and none in my home State of Tasmania. The most publicity Dr D’Adamo has received here in Australia was when a ‘noted’ Australian Nutritionist who shall remain nameless decided to slag off [bag] the whole process, although we only ever saw one point of view and she didn’t actually talk to anyone who used and believed in the plan.
Although not listed in the database I am fortunate living in Devonport to have access to two Naturopaths within 20 kms [10 miles] radius that are believers. Also we have three Health Food stores and two bulk wholefoods stores within the same radius.
To keep up with all the BTD news and gossip I regularly trawl through the pages of
www.dadamo.com and also regularly check the major search engines for other BTD sites and bulletin boards. Try typing ER4YT into Google or Yahoo and just follow your nose. One thing that amazes me continually on other users postings is the apparent lack of Health Food stores in what I would consider major residential areas of the USA. Maybe we are lucky here in Tasmania. There are many BTD type sites all over the World and sometimes it is handy just to get another point of view or to see how other people are coping with the diet.
Anyway today’s lunch and snacks comprise :-
100% Rye bread [homemade], spread with Garlic flavoured Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Miso, Rocket leaves, Red Romaine Lettuce, Watercress leaves, Bean Sprouts and raw Zucchini slices.
Dried Fruit including Apricots, Dates and Figs.
Fresh Fruit includes Nectarine and Plum.
Fresh brewed coffee.
By the way I forgot to mention that one of the other changes I made in my lifestyle was to drink more water. I used to drink almost nil and on the advice of my Naturopath I now drink a minimum of two litres per day and sometimes as much as 3 litres. Probably accounts for my beautiful complexion. !!!
