I'm a 39 yr old type O secretor....I'm a single father of an O secretor 8 yr old daughter... I live in Toronto, Canada.....About 8 years ago I lost all my bodily, scalp and facial hair due to an Autoimmune disorder called Alopecia Universalis..."hair today gone tomorrow".....I came to the BTD through a reflexoligist I was seeing 18 months ago. After reading many health books and diet books to cure all, your was the only book that was not a "one size fits all" approach. When I read in your book that type O's were most susceptible to Autoimmune Disorders, it really peaked my interest. Within 2 weeks of starting the BTD I began to notice an increase in my energy level, physically and mentally. I lost 20 pounds and 2 inches of my waist after 3 months and it was the first time I saw my stomach muscles in over 20 years without a sit up to show for.
I'm a sales manager by profession for a Fortune 500 computer company where there are always people demanding my time. the BTD diet has helped me control my stress levels and has helped me be more of an resource to the people that report to me .....From the time I started the diet I missed one day of work to illness in 18 months.
I'm from an Italian background where I ate pasta three time a week till I was about 18.....polenta(corn meal) was also one of my favorites...so for a long time I was eating all the wrong foods for my blood type...looking back I always felt "spaced out" after a plate of pasta with garlic bread.....needless to say I think the wheat was killing me because when the hair starting falling out, I felt terrible. Many medical treatments following the hair loss produced hair that only fell out when the treatments stopped....Since the BTD diet, I have seen hair grow back in places thick and strong....I'm not counting that it will all grow back but at least it gives me some feedback that my body is trying to heal and the right foods are helping.
I spend my free time playing golf, bike riding, roller blading, skiing, reading and playing guitar.
