Quoted from sandy_dileo
Hi, my name is Sandy, I live in Yorba Linda, Ca. and I am new to the BTD, started in May. I am an O and so far it hasn't been too difficult. I have CRFYT and have found that helpful. I have been pleasantly surprised when I saw the inches melting off my hips, no real weight loss. Has anyone else experienced this? It has leveled off now, darnn!
I have had a hard time learning how to post on this forum. I hope this goes through. If it does and I get the hang of this I will write more.


Hi Sandy, I'm Caroline...I love "kinda" close to you...I live in Ventura County, but  was raised and I spend alot of time  on Balboa Island. Really glad to have another  person in  Southern California. I am also  a O, but a nonnie.
So glad to have you!
Caroline

Hello everyone. My name is Lindalee. This is my first official day on the program. I have a question about Dr. D's book "Diabetes, Fight it with the Blood Type Diet" I'm an "O" and I'm confused on the grains section listed on page 51 of the book. It indicates I'm not allowed to have wheat, millet, Barley. However, under the section titled Neutral: Allowed frequently is has listed "Ezekiel 4:9 bread. When I looked at
the ingrediients on the package of bread, it included Barley, Wheat gluten and Millet.
So how come it's listed under the ok to use column??? Can you help me with that.
I'm excited about this program, my intuition says this is going to work for me. I have
high cholesterol, high tri's and am about 20 lbs overweight. I think my biggest challenge will be breakfast...I was a big cereal eater.
Thanks for listening and if anyone knows the answer about the Ezekiel bread let me know. Lindalee

Try reading this topic in Dr. D's FAQ:

What is Ezekiel Bread?
http://www.dadamo.com/faq/smartfaq.cgi?answer=988814053

Your goal should be to try to reduce your consumption of grains to minimum.

Try eating dinner for breakfast, meaning a piece of meat and green leafy veggies.

I was a big cereal eater before BTD too.  Now I never eat cereal.

Hi Lynn-

I pulled out my magic wand and aimed it at your signature

Welcome and congratulations to all the newbies, you'll continue to get good advice here.  It took me 4 months to try the diet from the time I figured out that it was what I should do (joint pain, near pre-diabetes, overweight, eczema, depression, etc. etc.)...so glad I did!

the sprouting process takes care of the unwanted lectin......

if you plan on loosing weight, you should stay away from the grain......
add it back to your diet, once you took care of the weight issue.

Thanks!  I thought it was twins at first, but it's just one very active, very hungry little boy (my second boy)  My sister-in law has twin girls, less than 2 years younger than her first girl, so they run around together like triplets.  Should really be a handful when they're teenagers!  How old are yours?

[b][/b][face=Arial][/face]Hello Forum members,

I am new as well and I happen to live in the Bahamas, the play ground
of the rich and the famous.  Bye the way, I am an "A."

I was always of the view that the foods we eat determined, to a great
extent, the extent of our health; so, I was always in serach of a good
Health Program.  I believe, finally, I have found the right program.

My immediate problem is to get rid of the Fungus in my Blood.  I tried
Medication, Folk Medecine and Supplements, all to no avail.  The
colour of the Toe Nails of my two big toes are black and they are numbish, now.

Apart frm the Fongus, I am in robust health according to my Doctor.

Some suggestions would be appreciated.  Thank you.

Rudolph

I do not know if you have tried the yeast/fungal protocols recommended in the Blood Type Encyclopedia.

Currently the online version of these protocols is being updated.

But Cate posted these (I do not have a copy handy to check them)
protocols for type A in 2002:

Stinging Nettle Root, (Uda Plus) 1-2 capsules, 2x/day

Elecampane, 500 mg, 1 capsule with meals 1-2x/day

Caprylic acid, 350 mg; 1-2 caps, 2x/day away from food

Betaine HCL 250 mg, 1 cap with large meals

Oregon Grape, 250-500 mg, 1-2 caps, twice daily

Larch arabinogalactan, 1T, 2x/day

Probiotic, preferably A specific

Non-secretors: add zinc, 15 mg/day

---------

General tip:

You will notice to the right of my post an avatar identifying me as type A.

To identify yourself as type A, it would be helpful if you would have
a type A avatar. Luckily, it is easy to get a cool "A" icon:

(1) Go to the top right side of this Web page and click on the purple Member Center button.  
  This brings up a new page. A lot of options are listed on the left side of the new page.

(2)Iin the "Edit Profile" section of the list on the left side-select " Avatar Settings."
  This brings up avatar setting options.  

(3) Select an "A Avatar" from the "Images in gallary" list box.

(4) Finally click the save button at the base of the page.

It really is that simple to get an avatar and then you will not need to keep typing that you are an A.

Thanks to all of you for being here...I am at home recovering from cartilage repair surgery, starring at the two little holes peeking at me from my left hip. In the process I learned that I have an ever-so-slight softening in an area in my newly explored posterior, inferior hip. What?? Me? The only books I've read since Tuesday are the Eat Right for Your Type series that have been calling to me for a couple of months.

I read these books a couple of years ago, got started for a short time...didn't search for support...and disappeared into the wheat-y world around me, now becoming a plagued Type O (+).  I even wrote a letter to Dr. D'Adamo regarding my immediate and unbelievable results...and asked him to have a louder voice in the world as I felt his work could save lives.

I guess it took these two little holes to help me realize that my Type O, "Type A", first born, ENTJ personality needs real help, focus...and to slow down. My Mom has been telling me this for a long time now....

I hope I can look to these forums and this site for advice and help. I'm just getting started and have so much respect for those who've moved beyond the daily effort of getting rid of the "avoids".....this is a--void for me right now  

I've ordered the secretor test kit....and had no wheat or dairy today. I'm searching for good food sources in our little city of Boise, Idaho. I'm a transplant here, but it looks like there are good sources of organic beef.

Its just me and my two little holes, one day at a time, and heading back to work on Monday.

Welcome aboard, lots of supportive friends here on the site. Check out the Testemonials and bloggers for inspiration. Some of the foods recommended for O's, and others, have changed as new studies are continually being made. Click on "Solutions" at the top of the page and then "TYPEbase4:..." to see what is acceptable for us O's. Cheers for a speedy recovery! - Howard

Hi Rosie,

You sound like a pretty "hip" woman.

Oh Mercy  

Well, you're at the right place for recovery. If you follow the diet, and boost your system with some of the supplemental programs available (see the Protocols in The Blood Type Encyclopedia if you have it) then you should be up and about in no time.

You are most probably in the perfect place to start "the new you" because you won't have many other things to distract you. Here's to a successful recovery.  

Aaron.

P.S. Welcome aboard.

Thanks for helping me getting set up....what a great site.

We spent this morning "detoxifying" the kitchen. Looks like we just moved in ...except for the plums, bananas and almonds. Of course, the scariest moment was when I read the label on the strawberry twizzlers in the freezer...corn syrup and wheat flour are the first four words. Horrifying. I feel like I'm in a Lucasfilm just waiting for the next special effect....

[b][/b][face=Arial][/face]The following is a pecular statement:

Caprylic acid, 350 mg: 1-2 capsules, twice daily away from food.

Is this to be taken literally or does it mean to take the caps on
an empty stomach.?
