I started that course on micronutrition back in august 1999. Read about that book Eat Right 4 Your Type in Dutch in september, bought it, read it and was hooked immediately... October 1st 1999 I started the BTD and never looked back!!!

Still after 6 years on this gorgeous way of eating, I still experience improvements...
It is an amazing journey into wellbeing with physical and mental health...

No falling off the wagon for me... Never ever ate red meat in those 6 years behind me.. Of course I had some potatoes and some avoids, but never complete avoidmeals.. No way!!! Maybe it is my 'OCD' that made me stick to it all the way long..

Anyway, reading ER was a revelation for me!! The last puzzling piece in my health was found.. From that day on, it was way up to health...

If there is one  Doc who really revealed the secrets of our health, who really cares for our health, it is Peter D'Adamo!!

Sometimes I wonder what would have become of me, healthwise if I had not 'found' the BTD on my path... ... My bp would still have been towerhigh.. Had kidneyproblems, I was close to an braininfarct back in 1995, my MD told me when he put me on bp-meds..
Now I am free of all meds. Last year stopped my bpmeds..

I feel very confortable in my body and mind Never ever want to go back to those years before 1999.

Soo happy I listened to my body when starting the BTD..

After a few weeks !
I saw the book at the bookstore- I looked at the B diet- somehow it fitted so well- BUT at the same time I felt very provoked of the thought that it was good bye pasta, chicken and tomatoes and lentells etc- since I was trying to loose weight on a semi vegetarian diet ( well I gained weight ). I had no serious problems abit of allegy and 50 pounds overweight -
Then I looked at the O diet- my almost 5 year old daughter ate a perfect O diet. She had skinproblems and constipation when she had milk and bread- so I tried to keep her off it.

I went home and wondered for a few weeks and went back and got the book!

The next 5 years I followed the B diet most of the time- Sometimes I fell but I never dropped it.I felt fine - my allegies disapeared , I lost abit of weight- My daughter just bloomed and all her problems diasappeared.

Almost 2 years ago I had the secretor test done and I restarted my diet - started eating after the portionsize etc and finally I lost 20-25 pounds
Today it is mainly a piece of organic bacon that sneaks into my diet and my soon to be 12 daughter has lately adjusted her O diet ( mixed with B) to a more clean O diet!
I still need to loose 20 pounds and I know I can do it this way - I am just a bit lazy and loved sweet things a chocolate ( POLY I fear it is a B thing )

I still feel a bit like a freak here in Denmark- only a few other people know of it ( SO GLAD POLY JOINED US ! )

My mum thinks it makes sense and try to follow O diet. My B sister with serious health issues avoids the chicken and tomato... but sadly has not been convinced to try a 100 % version, my B friend has B twins and do it 75 % of the time....
I think it is easier to make a immediately start if one has serious problems !

My question wasn't about how long it took you to fully convert to the BTD, but more about how long it took you to really start trying to use the BTD recommendations after you learned about them.

So how long did it take you?

Oh bummer! Hm, I guess I'll have to tie hubby's hands and lock him up and stuff him with B-benes until he's completely weaned off the sweets.

Summer of 2002 I was on a three day women's retreat. There was a lot of talking and sharing about health, lifestyle and diet. One of my friends has many health issues, as I do, and she was telling me about her co-worker who had successfully tried the BTD diet which helped their Crohn's disease symptoms. My friend and I agreed to buy the $20 LR4Y and split the cost. She has fibromyalgia, anemia and is very overweight, but she tried the O BTD for about 2 weeks and gave up. I on the other hand IMMEDIATELY started the A BTD and felt much better after only 2 weeks. In the past 3+ years, I have struggled with staying compliant, cooking the BTD way, what supplements to take, health issues improving or not. My greatest success has been comfirming my nonnie status recently and along with the Arthritis Health Series book finally fine-tuning my diet. I am still experiencing some detox, but generally feel better. I had not seen my friend for over a year. Met and talked to her at a meeting several days ago and was saddened that her health seems to have deteriorated. The timing was not good for me to share about BTD, but maybe I will get another opportunity with her...Diane

I first heard about ER4YT about 8 years ago.  I dont think I read the book after looking at the avoid list!  To go without tea and ALL my favourite foods just wasnt on.   My sister sent me a copy in March this year and being desperate to lose a couple of stone thought I give it a try as nothing else seemed to work for me now.  I knew it wasnt designed for weight loss but I thought cutting out bread, cereals, cake, biscuits, potatoes and cream, the weight would fall off.  Unfortunately that hasnt happened and I dont really understand it.  I lost 3 lbs the first week and since then it seems to average about lb a week.  Hopefully it will all add up.  I wasnt particularly interested in the health benefits as, apart from legs which stiffened up when I sat down and a right arm I couldnt lift above shoulder lever, I felt I was reasonably fit for a 78 year old.  Three days after starting to follow ER4YT my legs felt lighter and didnt stiffen up with sitting and I could raise my right arm high above my head.  A week later some friends dropped by for a meal and to extend the meat I made a steak and kidney pie.  The pastry was delectable but within 2 hours my legs ached so much they hurt and I knew there was no going back!  Its amazing what you can get used to. Living in England some things are not mentioned or maybe they are called something different.  Is Oxo OK?  What about prawns?  What is Farmers cheese?  Cheese is another thing I miss. The things I miss most, I think are sauces, savoury and sweet, so if anyone has found a solution Id love to hear about it.

Wow rustyc 78 years old and ready to change!

Prawns are basically the same as shrimp and it is ok- neutral for Os
as for the oxo- look at the labels it could contain bad things.
Do you know the typebase?
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/typeindexer.htm
it has all foods in .
You could look up farmers cheese and see if you rerognize it.
about cheese: do you like mozerella, feta cheese or goats cheese it would be ok.

Rusty, if you're losing 1/2 lb. a week, that's actually quite perfect.  It's much kinder on the body and better for your health to not make sudden weight changes.  At this rate, you'll be 24 pounds slimmer in a year, and it won't cause you to bounce back to gaining again like common "diets" do.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

I heard about the ER4YT Diet from my Brother (who has since stopped). He heard about it from a Nutrition professor in college. I am very overweight, and have had quite a few health problems. I tried it as soon as I read it, and I felt so good. I had a problem with being all or nothing, and quiting anything, as soon as I fell off the perfect path. So I quit. I tried South Beach and lost a lot of weight really fast, but got dizzy all the time, and my head felt in a fog.

I have finally learned to value baby steps, and starting last Sunday, I have slowly but surely been changing my diet to follow Type A. It is really great. This weekend I am going shopping, and I am going to increase my compliance to a much greater degree. It just feels so great when I eat how I should, and so horrible when I don't. I just had organic whole wheat mac and cheese with my 2 year old, and you would think ..oh great..but for me wheat makes me feel horrible just as Dr. D'Adamo says.

In the last 5 years, I have had 2 c-sections, my gallbladder removed and an ectopic pregnancy that needed surgery. I also had Grave's Disease( autoimmune hyper-thyroidism) when I was 23, so my thyroid had to be killed with radioactive iodine. I also have mild eczema, which is another autoimmune disease, but I know I am going to get so much better making this lifestyle change.

Also, as further proof Dr. D'Adamo knows what he is talking about, my husband didn't know his blood type. From reading the book, I told my husband that I would bet money he is Type B. He went and gave blood and low and behold, he is a Type B. So to say the least he doesn't think this diet is hookie. I can't wait to find out what my kids are! It could be anything, because I am a Type Ao for sure (My Dad has Type O- ) and he might very well be a Type Bo!

the1 st time, I started the bdt diet 1 month after read the book, and I failed, because I'm Italian and for 30 years I eat pasta-pane-cheese-meat-vegetable, as the mediterranean diet. I like every kind of foods.. and it was very hard to me to avoids many of these, also because I haven't any healt/weight problems..

I started again 3 months after the 1st tentative, and now I'm in BTD by the last June (4 monts, apprx) and I'm really happy. I have tried again the BTD diets ONLY THANKS TO THIS FORUM and WEBSITE. I feel like, and I think tht I will go on for all my life, I'm trying to apply this diet to my little doughter too, the only avoids for my type tht I have and tht I will continue to have is  PIZZA, but only 1 times each month,  I have to admit it to go on, or I will fail again...

thank you to all of you,

I had read ER4YT at least 2 years before getting serious. Not until I had been consuming white potatoes and corn on a daily basis ( after getting married, I very mistakenly took on the DH's eating habits of these 2 foods, which I prev rarely ate) and started feeling horrible. So horrible, I thought I had some disease that was killing me, as I felt worse every single day. All the drs were scratching their heads (no surprise). One day it just hit me that it was the potatoes and corn. Hunted down the book and have been following it since (sometimes too loosely )  When I read the book the 2nd time, the light really went on. It made sooooooooooo much sense. I began immediately to incorporate it in my eating. What a blessing!!

I was close to being a vegetarian and was having all sorts of digestive issues. I had tried lots of different ways to curb the flatulence and afternoon fatigue. Plus, I jump started my day with a cup of espresso and nothing else until I got to work.

When I picked up ER4YT in the diet section of the local bookstore, my first thought was that it would be just another diet book, but as I began to read a little light went on. I bought a pound of ground beef and have continued to improve my diet and my health ever since. (I've been on the diet at least three years.)

I first heard of the BTD from the father of a girl that played softball with my daughter.  That was five-and-a-half years ago.  He had lost quite a bit of wwight and I asked him how.  He was a type O, like me, and offered to let me borrow his book.  I read it and found it to make alot of sense.  I had lost some weight on the "Carb Addicts" diet and thought the BTD explained why.  It just wasn't a good time for me to be trying anything at that point, however, so............years passed.  I never forgot what I had read and even mentioned the book to several people throughtout the passing years.  Some with health problems, some that had tried Atkins (my husband and I both lost on it) and said it didn't work for them.  I found that most were not types O's so I told them about the BTD, explaining that not all blood types would do well on a higher protein diet.  HA, I was extolling the virtues of the BTD and I wasn't following it myself!  Well, after going on maintenance on the Atkins, I found that I kept putting the weight back on unless I kept my carbs very low. I got frustrated and told the hubby I couldn't live like that so I went back to eating more of what I wanted.  Big mistake!!  I put almost all the weight back on that I had lost.  I was discouraged.  I knew I wasn't going back on induction (first two weeks of Atkins at 20 or less grams of carbs per day).  What to do?????  DUH !!!!! The BTD!!  It had been there in the back of my brain just waiting for the day that I would wake-up and take notice of it!!  I went online and bought the ER4YT book, the diabetes book and the pocket book for Os (I don't have diabetes but my Dad and younger brother do and I don't want to!).  I checked out the LR4YT book at the library and now have the CR4YT from there.  I hope to someday add them to my personal collection but right now money is being spent on accumulating the many new grocery items that I am needing.   Sooooo............either 51/2 years or within a week depending on which one actually counts!!!!!!!!

I was so sick with chronic fatigue from allergies and systemic fungal infection, that I was seriously considering total disability in April, 1999.  That is when I started NAET, and the benefits were tremendous.  I truly believe that most of my health problems were due to growing up eating a diet that consisted largely of beef, chicken, pork, corn and wheat.

At the end of 1999, another patient in the allergy clinic recommended the ER4YT book and diet to me.  I got the book, read it, and started to follow it immediately.  After about 6 months, I started to slip away from it because I was feeling so much better, but didn't realize how much benefit I was getting from the diet.  I continued getting better unitl I reached a plateau that I couldn't step over...  I knew I still had problems and was continuing to do things to get better, but the results were were coming slower.  

It wasn't until a ND recommended it to my mother-in-law about five or six months ago, that we got back to the diet.  I had been having achiness in my leg joints and muscles because we were eating quite a bit of chicken.  I had stayed away from corn because it gives me bad headaches.  When my wife said the Doc had told her mom about the diet and mom called daughter to ask, "Isn't that what you were talking about a while ago?", we pulled out the ER4YT and CR4YT from the bookcase and re-read the sections for us.  Oh yeah, chicken causes these aches in the joints...  DUH!!!  I can tell the benefits now, so there will never be a going back for me!  My wife sees the difference for her, as well.

My wife (A) and I are eating a reasonably compliant diet.  I really feel it if I'm out and can't get mostly beneficials for a meal.  We do need to get the secretor testing done and need to get our daughter typed, etc., but she is eating mostly an AB diet plus ice cream and too many sweets...  Just in the last couple of months, her tastes have changed quite a bit.  She is eating less sweets and more fruits and vegetables.  We could all benefit from more variety of beneficials and will continue to incorporate them in.

So Don, I guess to answer your questions, immediately and 5 1/2 years.  Yes, I had so many problems that almost anything on the right path made me feel better.  Unfortunately, when you start doing so much beneficial, it is sometimes hard to tell what is and isn't helping.

I heard about it from a doctor when I was on the border of needing thyroid medication for an underactive thyroid, had high white cell counts and was passing out all the time.  On top of that my cholesterol was way too low, I was getting allergies to everything, had quite bad endometriosis/pcos and was constantly sick.

Interestingly when I'd heard about it, I'd already given up all dairy & wheat (celiac & lactose intolerance) however I noticed a real difference straight away when I cut out the soy, pork and SUGAR.  

However, following on from this I had a really stressful time and although I remained compliant, my adrenals were on the verge of collapse and my thyroid dropped again.  Even with 100% compliance my body just didn't want to repair itself. Anyway, I developed Chronic fatigue as well and then started to get acquainted with ovarian cysts that were larger than the usual.

To cut a long story short, I'm still on the diet with 100% compliance and now on a fairly stringent regime of supplements and exercise/lifestyle.  I guess I do a modified version with extra allergies to consider, but basically it's still avoid the avoids with a passion.

You should vote immediately!, since you did try it immediately even though you slacked off later. I'm glad you found your way back and that is working out well for you and your family. Have you tried calling your daughter's doctor(s) to see if they might have her blood type on record? Once you get that done you need to have a spit party (saliva colection for secretor test). By the way is your mother in law following the BTD per her doctor's recommendation?

MoDon,
One of my beefs with my daughter's doctor group is that they destroyed her file because we hadn't been in the office for 3-5 years.  We called both the hospital and the doctor and both said they have never had reason to type her, but the records were no longer available, even if they had.
MIL - no, she doesn't cook enough to do BTD.  She is a single empty-nester and doesn't think it is worth the time to cook for herself.  She didn't like cooking when she had kids at home, but now just won't hardly cook anything.  When we go for holidays, we have to restock her kitchen from almost nothing because she doesn't even keep staples in it anymore.  I need to get her together with P'Twist...  Maybe some of her enthusiasm would rub off.

I have read ER4YT in  2001 and started to try a little bit: After some months I found LR4Y and I was completely hooked by Dr. D medical evidences and deep strong points. All my clinical tests were tipically A like and are better without medication with the diet and supplements asl gingko and vit C.
My A diet gives enough calcium and iron from food ! My energy is strong and with gluten free diet my allergies are nearly gone away. Just a little dermatitis on the scalp and a sensitive nose still to improve but God bless Dr D and BTD !

I was visting Canada for the summer holidays and checking out the reading material I came across the original BTD book. I took it to the cottage with me and read it cover to cover.
Well, since noone in my family was on BTD, I hate to wait till I got back to Japan. It was fairly easy once I was back because I am a type A and there are many soy products.

Now, since my blood pressure is too low 91/73 and apparently not enough range between the high and low numbers I am also taking Chinese herbs. Had no choice as there are no naturopaths here. If the numbers are too close that means you have bad circulation and not enough blood vessels, etc. Anyway, according to Chinese medicine that is not good and I do not have enough "ki". I have been making a tea everyday and also drinking a mixture of Reishi mushroom and some special carrot and of course I have been eating pretty close to the diet, staying away from wheat as much as possible. Good news is that after two weeks I have lost 2 kg, my blood pressure is normal. My heart still beats too fast and that is because I worry too much and need to sleep better at night.
But, getting better.....

This diet does work!

Northstar,
If you have a good chinese medical doctor, you are fortunate.  Chinese herbs, along with the BTD, can work wonders.

(I take reishi everyday also)
