When I was 100% compliant, I went 3 times a day like clockwork. Things were just right, if ya get my drift. Never too hard or too squuuuuushy. It was an amazing change from pre BTD!!!  Lots of constipation. I quickly realized that was from wheat. If I cheat and eat wheat now, I can count on being constipated the next day or 2.

Before the diet it was a everytime I ate something, I was vegetarian and ate a lot of whole wheat bread and fake meats.

After the diet basically after breakfast or a good meal -so average 2-3 times a day.

Funny, Atkins never changed my movements except that there was less bulk, obviously.



Really? That's interesting! What was your (argh don't remember the terms anymore) critical carb limit or whatever we used to call it!? Mine was 50 grams a day if I wanted to lose 1-2 lbs/week, and that's fairly high I believe. But still I needed the extra fibers to get things moving.

On BTD I'm fine when I eat a serving of grains every other day.

Before trying this diet, it wasn't nearly often enough. Now, I would say that it is at least once a day.

I go twice sometimes thrice a Day.  I am like another poster Chris B here.  I go more often if I eat c**p because my body decides to spit it out almost immediately.  I am guessing that is a good thing (?)

I had to be at 20 or under to lose, 50 or under to maintain. My carbs were mostly lettuce/romaine, broccoli, asparagus, macadamia, walnut, almond, squashes and so on. What carbs I got had fiber.

Never supplemented fiber, had nice (small) normal movements.

Hey Dancer! try eating a lot of one fibrous thing at a time.  Since I'm a fruit eater for breakfast, it works. E.G. eat a whole container of blueberries or a whole can of canned pineapple if you can't get fresh fruits.  Eat a cup or more of grapes or cherries, etc. in season.  I love watermelon & if I'm home, can eat almost 1/2 of one over a morning.  Then when you eat veggies, eat huge amounts.  I can make salad with half a lettuce or a whole one if it is loose.  Beets are wonderful for fiber.  Cook some ahead-they take 2 hours to boil for big ones-cool them & use them cold-great in salads.  If fresh is not available, eat a whole can of peas.
Don't eat any refined carbs.  They are like cement in our systems.
Even tho I go more than once a day, I can get constipated very easily. There is a thread about this glorious topic somewhere.  Read it.  I guess olive oil is helpful as well as water, exercise, etc., but for me, eating right is imost mportant.
Please don't suffer any more!!!

Sorry Mrs T, my 'dancing' post was actually a joke. I never used the phrase "move my bowels" and it sounded like a dance move to me.
There is nothing wrong in my poo playpen.

There was an earlier post by another member whose name is 'dancer'.

Dancer has a serious issue with BM's, among other things. The post you refer to is addressing 'dancer', not you.

What about colour? Mine has gone really dark since starting to eat a lot of beef like when I took iron supplements in the past. Is this normal?

Stool color is generally influenced by what you eat as well as by the amount of bile a yellow-green fluid that helps digest fats in your stool. As bile pigments travel through your gastrointestinal tract, they are chemically altered by enzymes changing the pigments from green to brown.

I have suffered with constipation as well since going compliant on BTD, however, if I take my FiberSmart every day then I have a couple of fluffies a day.  I've also upped my Omega 3s to twice a day and use castor oil pack, as per my ND and things are smoothing out nicely.

I've had colon cancer resection surgery so I want to keep my movements passing through regularly.  I've been told you should go once for every meal you eat per day.  I've also read that constipation can lead to breast cancer due to those toxins staying in your system.

I'm sure dark color is from a lot of meat.  Eat more veggies & fruits (fruit eaten alone or before other food).
I have seen so many colors come out. It is very interesting.  If I eat a half watermelon (of course if I stay home all morning!), I often see red stool.  It is so funny! Beets even make the urine lok a little redder & if you forgot you ate them, you might be scared.

Before BTD I was a 'once every 3 or 4 days' girl.  Now its daily and if I'm lucky, twice a day.  

I think the most important factors for me are making sure I drink enough water and not eating wheat.  Although interestingly now, if I do have some wheat bread (and don't continue it as a regular thing) then I have the opposite issue of my body recognising it as 'evil' and it comes out super schnell/fast!  

I also have to really listen to my body signals.  Part of my problem I think, is that if my body tells me its ready for a bowel movement and I'm busy doing something, then I put it off and once the signal is gone nothing happens and everything just dries up inside.  This has been much easier to manage while I haven't been working full time so we'll see how things go once I'm back at work full time.

Pre-BTD, I wasn't real regular and my plunger and I were good friends.

Now it's 1 or 2 times/day.  The plunger feels neglected.   Interestingly, I have noticed that my two A children and I all go at about the same time as each other during the day, even though we mostly eat different foods.

Dr. D:

I've noticed that if I'm able to stay totally on your diet for at least 3 days, I only have one BM a day.

But if I have any grain or grain product other than just rice, I have either diarrhea or multiple BM's during the day.

Anything sweet also messes me up. As does caffeine.

This blood type science of yours, is spot-on correct with me.

It's funny, but finding your book is a lot like that old show called "The Greatest American Hero", where the hero had the alien super-powered suit, but never had the alien instruction book to go with it... So he was always having to figure out how the suit worked, through this comedic process of elimination.

The premise for that show was a pretty compelling allegory of what life is like... You spend most of your life trying to figure out the rules, and it's just too bad you don't get it when you're born.  You have to go through a lot of needless suffering until you can finally discover the rules.

Your blood type diet is a lot like that.

It's like finally having the instruction manual for our bodies.  Too bad this stuff wasn't known when I was born.

Ronagon, I liked your BTD analogy to the super powered suit in "The Greatest American Hero" movie.

This is so interesting to me!
I just started the BTD 5 days ago, at the reccomendation of an N.D. I don't have any serious health problems, but I felt that my metabolism had been slowing down and not running efficiently over the last few years and I have put on some weight.  I have never eaten much meat, especially red meat.  I had been trying to get more healthy by going almost completely vegetarian for the last 6 months with only occassional seafood for quite a while and wasn't seeing much success... so I went to the N.D. & was surprised to find out that I was eating all wrong for my body.

In the last 5 days since my visit to the N.D. I have changed my eating dramatically and I have noticed a big change in my BMs.  I've always been really regular or even overly regular.  When eating mostly vegetarian the last 6 months or so, I was going at least 4 times a day, but usually more and also seeing a lot of undigested food.  PreviouslyI was worried that I may be developing IBS or some digestive problems.  After 5 days without wheat, corn, & dairy (I'm still working on the littler avoids, but I've cut out the big ones completely for the last few days.)  and introducing red meat back into my diet, I have had only one or two BMs each day and there is no more undigested food or loose stools.  I finally feel "regular" not too much of one extreme or the other.

Welcome Santosha, I think you will find that your health will continue to improve the longer you stay on the BTD.

Thanks for the welcome, everyone!
I'm just starting to see the potential of this way of eating and am looking forward to seeing my health improve over time.  I can already see small changes in just a few days and I'm feeling great, so I think it can only get better from here This forum is so helpful and informative as I'm getting started... I know I'll be asking lots of questions here as I'm learning more.
Namaste,
Kate

I am so happy to hear that!

Warning ---->  Gross Bowel Movement Details Follow:

Since I eat too much food, my wife thinks I go too often (3 x day +)

I took Dr D's basic "O" package for about a month and noticed a change

  -  darker and greener
  -  more solid yet fuzzier at the edges
  -  floats more

I noticed many other positive improments, but this is the weirdest
