A few days ago I wrote a little about introducing people to the BTD and some of their reactions. Yesterday a dear friend that just couldn’t make such changes and give up favorite foods was placed in the Adult Critical Care unit with heart problems. Today they did a procedure (don’t know which) and put her into Primary Care. She should be released from the hospital tomorrow and will return either by flight or a very long drive.
I’ve talked with this friend several times over several months about the BTD. Each time I tried to encourage her to make some of the less drastic additions or eliminations. Well, “Maybe someday,” she would say. Most recently, she didn’t want to make too many changes; after all, she had just given up smoking again because of her asthma.
On the bright side, another friend is beginning to make changes to follow the BTD and see what difference it might make in her diabetes, obesity, and other health issues. She’s tired of not feeling well and is concerned about the stress causing her blood sugar levels to be far higher than normal. Today I talked with her about using vegetable glycerine instead of splenda and some other substitutions she could make. She wants to feel better, knows how much better I feel and look, and is willing to make changes to do just that.
So, some listen and do nothing. Some listen and make changes. I talk to a lot of people in a week. Telling people about the BTD is a passion. Take care. Eat right for your type.
