Back before I started the Blood Type Diet I was eating what I wanted, when I wanted. If an occasional episode of diaherria came up it was no big deal. “It must have been something I ate.”
Fast forward ten years later...
Last fall my wife bought some peaches. We had not had any in a long time so we promptly put them in a brown paper bag to ripen. After a few days when that mouth watering smell erupts from the bag, they are ready to be eaten. I enjoyed the now ripe and delicious peach just like any other time.
The next day started like any other and things were going along until (gurgle, gurgle) - uh oh! – Run to the bathroom, start sweating...Well, you know the rest. I thought to my self when I was finished “that doesn’t happen very often at all! What did I eat that could have caused that to happen?”
The rest of the day was uneventful and I pretty much forgot about it.
The next week my wife again brought home some peaches and we ripened them. I again enjoyed another delicious, sweet tasting, mouth watering peach. The next day came and started out like any other until (gurgle, gurgle) – uh oh!...
The bells and sirens couldn’t have been any louder in my mind at that point. It was the peaches!
Now keep in mind that peaches are Neutral for Blood Type O’s but I had just discovered that they are not Neutral for me. As your BTD journey unfolds, you too will find that foods listed as Beneficial or Neutral may not agree with you. The BTD is an individual way of eating. Tweaks to your diet should be expected.
The Blood Type Diet works. Back in 1999, I was eating most of the wrong foods and it was masking any problems I was having. It wasn’t until about 5 years ago that I began to see cause and effect if I happened to “cheat” with a tasty avoid. Now that all of the layers of bad eating have been washed away, I can tell when something does not agree with me even though it may be listed as Beneficial or Neutral.
Most people who start on the BTD have one problem or another. Some of the newcomers to the BTD are over the age of 25. Most are over the age of 35. My observations have led me to the conclusion that there are two key ages that our bodies decide enough is enough. Those ages are at 25 and 35 years of age. Just imagine with me that your body has put up with all of the “abuse” you have given it for the first 24 years. For some reason when that magic number 25 rolls around something changes. You get more aches and pains; you get tired more easily or just feel older. The next 10 years come and go and at age 35 you really start to feel the decline. Signs are: Stiffness; soreness, just feeling awful most of the time or any number of dilemmas.
Luckily, Dr. Peter D’Adamo has developed a way to eat that can reverse years of damage and can actually heal us from the inside out. Give the Blood Type Diet or Geno Type Diet a chance to work its magic. Six weeks is not going to do it. Even six months is not enough. Every day you eat right for your Blood Type is a day of healing. Remember, you didn’t get to this point in sixty days and you are not going to fix the damage in sixty days. Listen to your body and it will reward you.
