I just finished reading ‘Diabetes...Fight it with the Blood Type Diet’ by Dr D. I picked it up because my dad is in a pre Diabetic stage and I want to help him bring his blood sugar levels down. I have found that my book buying dollars have reached an all time high since being on the diet.
Just the other day, a close friend of mine was in town from Austin, Texas and she wanted to get together with me to catch up on things. I had a nice night planned with dinner and ‘Second City’ but at the last moment she called and canceled…the reason being she had severe morning sickness. Although I was happy for her new pregnancy (number 3), I was concerned and immediately asked her what her address was (she is staying with her in-laws 50 miles east of the city. She asked ‘why’ and I basically told her …’I want to send you something for what’s ailing you’. She is probably expecting some congratulatory flowers or teddy bear …I sent her Dr D’s ‘Eat Right for your Baby’. I will be seeing her this Friday and hopefully she’s feeling better to go out and socialize.
A good friend of mine started on the BTD diet a few weeks ago and today commented how his pants were loose. He complained he always felt bloaty, especially after meals. He had a tough time giving up wheat and other avoids for type O like milk, potatoes etc. but he has a goal to get his waist size down to 35…it’s currently 39. I bought him “Live right for your Type”. He remarked that I went to far by buying him the book, but I explained ‘you need to know the “why” before the “do”.
My job at work entails getting people to work at their fullest potential…the more they produce, the more I get paid, the more money they make…. a win/win scenario. What I find curtails most people at work from doing so (besides attitude) is what they put in their mouths throughout the course of the day. My company provides free coffee (avoid for most blood groups) and bagels, danishes and such (all wheat laden) for the employees when “their energy reserves are low’. It irks me a little when the company I work for is in some way curtailing the job they pay me to ‘do’.
There is a saying in sales ‘that word of mouth is the best form of advertising’. I’ll just keep spreading the news about BTD till it reaches critical mass…hopefully that will put more dollars in my pocket so I can buy more BTD books for the people I care the most for.
