I am sure this has been discussed here before. I have not been to this forum in quite a while.

Due to a very challenging year, I have gained weight and would like some advice and support from those who have used the BTD to lose weight and regain their health. I am 55, female and would like to lose about 40 pounds.

I have no major health problems, but just had my annual physical and my doctor said that some of my blood profile readings were borderline and needed improvement. I am now post menopausal, and so far no major difficulties from that.

I would like to hear from those who maybe wandered away from the diet but who got back on and saw significant results. Weight loss would be a big bonus but I also very much want to get my cholesterol and blood sugar down to a very normal range rather than at borderline.

Thanks to all.

When I became 95-100% compliant on the Arthritis program, I noticed significant results.  My blood work also improved, too.  The only number that was still borderline was my good cholesterol....it needed to be higher.  And my weight started to go down, but only if I kept up the exercise.....I still have a problem staying focused and motivated regarding exercise.

Jump back into embracing the BTD.  Concentrate on your beneficials, trying to get as many as possible into you at each meal.

And, keep us posted as to how you are doing/progressing on your returnng journey.

Welcome back!


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

Thanks for your kind note. I know once things calm down a bit that it will be easier to concentrate on improving "me" instead of all of the distractions that have been around me lately!

I know the BTD does not promote itself as a weight loss diet and perhaps that is why it is not as widely known as it should be! The fad diets get all of the publicity!

I am confident that once I get back on track that things will improve and I am so looking forward to that. Hope to also hear from some Type B's like me who have had the same journey!

Hi Joyce
Well I have lost weight on BTD but still needs to loose more - but I am getting better at it.
I have been off the track alot of times
- but I have never really stepped compleetely off the road :like eating LOTS of avoids etc - sometimes life has just been too stressfull for me to follow BTD 100 %

Iīll write along piece about what I have found out about me and loosing weight
- It is my PERSONAL experience so it might not be like this for all  Bīs;
remember we are all individuals -BUT I hope it can help you anyway to get back on track.

I seem to need to change my diet between the seasons- maybe because I live a place were seasons vary a lot ( so I eat different during winter months: more fat -more starches etc - but in general:

Donīt worry too much about fats from dairy, fish, neutral nuts and really dark chocolate.
When I eat to lean - I get addictive to sugar, flours and sweet drinks.

Pay attention to neutral grains and notice that spelt might be beneficial - but only as whole grain - no flour is benefical.

I have made the deal with myself that I aim at a max of 1 serving of benefical grains pr day- from monday- friday mainly as brown rice- whole spelt- millet or oats in porridge- in the weekend it can be transformed into speltcake or bread or pancake.
Why?
1) well I find it impossible to give up bread completely or for that matter cake- so I have made the deal that I can eat small amounts in the weekend- but only good stuff.I do not find it difficult to get back on track monday- but I am not an all or nothing girl so !
2) In summer- early fall I hardly eat any flour or grains- I donīt need it that much- but when it gets cold here I need them more!

Sugar is the next problem for me
Hides everywhere and if you are a nonie: a real serious problem - but also bad in everyday life for a secretor.

I use it in my weekend cake - but I have started to use more honey ( I have bees myself) and maplesirup- I need less of theese compaired to ordinary sugar.
I have started to use fruit as a sweetener as well- mashed banana sweeten a lot ! in a cake or sliced on yoghurt.

OR you could look into the alternative sweeteners like ricesirup- molasses and glycerol.

Pay attention to you proteins -many Bīs need protein at every meal if they want to loose weight:

I rotate between eggs, yoghurt and cheese in the morning
beans, fish or cheese( only if not at breakfast) at lunch
Fish or meat at dinner.

My morning snack is alwys walnuts or almonds- they keep me satisfied for long time.
If I do not get enough protein - I get hungry and makes BAD choises!
Make sure you get enogh beneficial veggies. It is so easy to get too many neutrals

Mental/ practical connection:
Write down what you eat - it makes a lot of sense when you want to pay attention to your diet.
I write goals down as well- it keeps me focused on what I want to do- else I can often slip away - daydream - say tomrorrow Iīll make the right choise ! typical Bīs stuff ...
BUT keeping a dairy:  screams into my face that I have made BAD choises - I hate to put down that I had a regular piece of bread or only 1 piece of fruit - so after a fewdays my diet ALWAYS improve a lot !

Exercise
- well I am lazy or  well I just donīt like organized sports.But it is hard to loose weight without exercise !
Walking is my best friend - This summer I started walking 30 min pr day
- I kind of daydream/ mediate when I do it- lately I walk almost 1 hour a day - and I can rwally see the difference!
My only problem is that I would love somebody to pull me out of the couch- my O daughter does a pretty good job - but a doggy would be nice as well-
Maybe find a friend that needs some exercise as well- it could be hiking, biking swimming or ?

and YES I have made a fresh start so many time- It is never to late to get back !
Every time I feel a bit wiser

I am not sure Iīll ever be able to be a hardcore BTD ér never eating a single avoid- always getting the right amount of exercise- it is just not my style- BUT if one live a good BTD friendly everyday life -it is a good start!

Remember joy in your life

Good luck

Colojd,
I'm not your blood type and I'm sure the best advice has been posted on Henriette's post.
I have been a somewhat yo-yo dieter for....well, too long. You know, do really well and then begin to slide again into things which I know are bad for me personally. I know that to start eating chocolate.....is my quickest way to gain weight, I would rather eat that than a meal!!!
I know it's stupid but we're all different. My best times of even weight has been when I just refuse to eat the stuff.

So, in the last 5 weeks I've lost 8lbs. I made myself start writing down everything that I eat during the day - I seem to need that kind of discipline. Then I use a highlighter pen for each catagory of food eaten - I use purple for 'rubbish', I aim to not use that one at all!!!
I weigh and measure myself, which is an encouragement to see the inches coming off.

I'm exactly the same age as you and admit that weight loss seems to be more of a challenge as the years pass, so needs perhaps a little more effort....but I like this saying "I'm sure you can, if you put your mind to it"!!

Keep posting on the forum for lots of support and there's also the 'Fresh Start' thread which is for members specifically trying to loose/maintain their weight.

Best wishes.

Hi Janet and Henriette and thanks for your comments.

I do think that writing down, or paying very close attention to what is consumed is a very good idea. I am sue we all would snack or nibble without really realizing how much we ate in one day! I think one thing about the B diet is that we can enjoy a wide variety of fruits and vegetables - I have been good about always eating those but now will try to eat more in the beneficial category.

Only thing that is a bit of a problem is the beneficial meats are sometimes hard to find. I have a B son and an O husband and we all like lamb, buffalo and of course beef. I know chicken is an avoid for B's - but I still eat it because otherwise I would have a pretty limited scope of meats to eat. I don't seem to have a problem but possibly it is because we limit it to organic chicken and not eat it more than once a week. I know if I eat any other type of chicken such as Tyson that has the additives, I do feel the achiness that some B's report.

I think eating seasononally also makes a lot of sense and is probably something that needs more information.

I am sure once I get back on track and away from this stressful job, then things will line up for me much better!

I know that chicken is one of the biggest B avoids - someone else can tell you the reasons why - but it could possibly slow weight loss if you do eat chicken.  Try subbing the chicken for turkey and you'll all be able to enjoy it.

Thanks Lola.
This lastest gain of several excess pounds was due to the 5 week trip to Uganda....extremely hard work and I got into lots of bad habits!!  

My husband's taking me to Sevilla/Cordoba for a few days mid November, so that's really why I'm making the extra effort.
Actually, I'm only about 4lbs away from my goal now so am very pleased.

Hi mhameline:

We do all enjoy turkey. We got our first Diestle organic turkey a couple of years ago at Wild Oats for Thanksgiving and really love it so probably will continue that tradition!

Regarding avoids, it was my understanding that they affect your immune system and not necessarily weight. I am not advocating B's eating chicken but do know that it is very hard to avoid it if you are looking for lean meat substitutes and are beneficial or neutral.

I see you are married to a B+ so what challenges has he had following the diet?

Well - for me - when I have avoids that's when I have the biggest problems maintaining my weight loss - but I'm an O so it could be different for B's.  But my understanding is that avoids cause inflammation and a big part of what causes weight gain is inflammation.  

And as for my B husband chicken is truely his worst avoid.  He tries to really avoid it as much as he can because anytime he has it he feels awful - mainly with digestive problems.  So, I guess I see a B who eats chicken and I would always suggest the turkey substitute.  I have pretty much stopped buying chicken all together just because we share our meals and given how badly he does with it I just don't have it in the house much at all anymore.

Oh and I've seen discussions on the board before about how chicken is a big contributor to strokes in B's.  There's another huge reason to stay away from it.  Someone else could probably point you in the direction of where that information is located.  


Blessings,
Missy

There are several reasons for avoids...  Some cause cell clumping in the blood.  Others slow digestion or elimination.  There are probably other effects as well.

The cell clumping seems like it would slow the flow of blood - causing delay in getting food, etc. to cells and waste matter away from cells, as well as increasing the chance of clotting and added waste matter to be filtered.

Slowing digestion or elimination will affect the amount of nutrition and or waste matter absorbed into the blood stream.  This can be responsible for weight gain because the body does not eliminate the waste, it is continuously reabsorbed because it is sitting for so long in the colon.  If the body has excessive waste matter in the blood, it can put it out into fatty tissue for storage until a time when elimination is functioning better.

Yes, ultimately, both of these will have affect the immune system, but the body is such a complex system, I doubt anyone knows all of the possible reactions or interactions caused by eating the wrong foods.

You need to read the LR4YT book. The following is one point from a list of recommendations in the Type B - Specific Metabolic Conditions section, pages 276-280.

Quoted from LR4YT page 278-9
The Lectins in several foods inhibit absorption and metabolic efficiency for Type Bs. I have observed many Type Bs who have no trouble losing weight once they eliminate these foods: chicken, lentils, peanuts, sesame seeds, and buckwheat.

These are some great posts, and I really appreciate the extra insight on avoids and weight loss.  I only knew that when I don't eat a compliant blood type diet, my weight AND my cholesterol will climb.

Joyce, could you get your secretor status tested?  When I thought I was a secretor, even though I was doing my best to be compliant, my weight kept creeping up.  After I found out that I'm a nonnie, and I made the appropriate changes, my weight quickly dropped by about 30 pounds over less than 3 months without dieting.

If I ate like Henriette, I would quickly gain weight, but she and I are different secretor types, even though we are both B's.  If the diet is not dropping the weight like you want, you may be a nonnie.

Hi Joyce.

(now for a much different approach) .... I strongly tend to adapt BTD to seasonality like Henriette and since you live in Colorado, I assume seasonal variation is very in-your-face too!

For most of the fall eat root veggies, few compliant grains, flax, chia, or hemp seeds; compliant nuts especially walnuts and almonds; a little turkey and salmon - sockeye; and much ghee yogurt or sour-milk.  
For the transition to winter - I assume also, that you can get hold of meats that are rather rare in other locales ... like wild venison, perhaps bear ... focus on these + little/no fruit will soon take you into a mild ketosis.
For winter follow lifestyle adaptations in 'Lights Out' TS Wiley Take cod liver oil/vitamin D3 if you live at high elevation.  A magnetic mattress at http://www.magneticosleep.com/ should help for energy.  For losing fat + increasing body heat: supplement with fish oil + calcium pyruvate + L-carnitine/acetyl-L-carnitine

Yes I agree with John
- I have always wondered why I didnīt feel like eating fruit except a bit of dry fruit in the winter -I know now why !
I have often tried to explain to my friend in California why my lifestyle is so different during the year. She had only visited during summermonths - where we eat lots of veggies, fish, dairydishes- stay up late: sun gets uo around 3.30 - and down at 11 - so it is no wonder one feel alive and extravert
Last year she came in november and suddenly our candlelight, sundays spent on the couch made sense for her.
Now in the beginning of octobre I feel more tired - but havnīt yet changed my life to wintermode.
I get up at 6- but sun is first up around 7.30- and is down already around 7- so the day is so much shorter.
Sometimes around 9 I am just so tired - and in wintertime I would go to bed around 9- 9.30- but I am still mentally on sommermode

Bīs and meat !
Well I live with an O - and the B meat is hard to get, expensive and really not my favorite so my meat is more the O stuff ; veal, beef and turkey- sometimes I can afford venison and lamb - but sadly not often enough !
I think like this rather neutral protein than no protein !
BUT never ever chicken- get it out of you life now !
I might be provoking some but
Chicken is WAY worse for a B than organic pork !!!!!!

Victoria
would you share a typically day ?
I wonder - how different a typically day for you are compaired to mine ?
It could be educational for B types who doesnīt yet know their secretorstatus!

Hi Henriette!  Here in Oregon, we are experiencing a shift in the seasons also, and longer dark.  By the time mid-December reaches us, it will be getting dark by 5 pm, so people spend the entire evening in the dark and get up while it is still dark.

Some differences in my diet and yours are:
I am almost grain-free.  No flour at all.  No gluten.  I have a rice cake everyday;  that's the only grain, unless flax would be considered a grain.
I eat less dairy, and no cow dairy at all.
No sugar, honey, maple syrup, only a small amount of blackstrap molasses.

Typical day:

Wake up and have a big glass of water with my herbal supplements.
After my shower, I make fresh vegetable juice.

About 1/2 hour later,

Breakfast:  16 oz. Power Drink (I'll provide recipe in later today if you want it.)
After breakfast, a big mug of Genmaicha tea.

2 or 3 hours later:

Another 16 oz Power Drink
After "brunch", another cup of green tea or Dandelion Root tea

Around 3 p.m., my main meal of the day, which I call "dinner":

approx. 1/3 pound of meat, usually lamb, either ground or chops.  Lately it's been ground for economy!    Sometimes it will be fish, such as cod or halibut.  Occasionally, beef.  All my meats are baked or sauteed with ghee, seasoned with onion, garlic, herbs, no breading or frying.
A couple of cups of vegetables, mostly beneficial.  These will vary, and I usually do some type of olive oil drizzle on them.  A tiny pinch of good quality sea salt.
A couple of figs or small handful of grapes.

My evening meal is around 6:30 p.m.:

baked sweet potato with ghee
1/3 pound wild salmon or sardines
a lightly toasted rice cake topped with 1/2 and 1/2 raw almond butter and chopped walnuts, drizzled with a few drops blackstrap molasses.

That's my own delicious day!

Thanks Victoria - sure it is different - but no that much......

Yesterday was a pretty typical day for me

6 o clock
black tea ,
2 small soft boiled eggs,pink grape , 1 rice cake
probiotics

10 o clock coffee with milk, large pear, handfull fresh walnuts - yum ....

13 o clock
water, salad with broccoli, red pepper, romaine-3 oz  cold turkey breast - oliveoil and lemonjuice.

16 oc
stewed apples and plums  with a bit of full fat yoghurt ( 2 tbl )
Green tea

19 oc
4 oz cod baked in oven - with sweet potatoes, green beans- ghee to the potatoes- and homemade mayonaise

21 1 glass of milk and a banana

When I eat fish I alwys get so hungry ... normally I wouldnīt eat that late.

And I had more dairy than normal. but I normally change some of the cheese serving into yoghurt.

Well I think it is my good scandinavian roots that makes cows milk fine with me.

That's pretty compatible with the way I eat, Henriette.  Except that I don't drink the black tea, and also I think that sometimes you really enjoy your baking, which I don't do anymore!

Here's my Power Drink recipe!  Be forewarned.  It's suitable for type B's, so other bloodtypes need to adjust accordingly.    I make a lot because it's for both my daughter and myself.

For approx. 5 cups :

1 1/2 C juice (check your food list for beneficials)  I use Concord Grape, or Cranberry/grape blend.
1/2 C fresh or frozen fruit (use beneficials when you can) I use blueberries and cherries.
1 banana

2 Tb flax seeds freshly ground, or frozen ground flax.  After grinding, it's about 3 Tb.
2 Tb. nutritional yeast
2 Tb. green powder, such as Harmonia.  I'm currently using Greener Grasses CLICK.
1 rounded Tb. lecithin granules CLICK.  I like this brand because it's non-genetically modified, and is powdered instead of granules.
1 tsp. Chlorella CLICK
2 tsp. ProBerry syrup from NAP CLICK
1 rounded Tb. ARA6 from the NAP store CLICK
3 Cups homemade goat's milk Yogurt.  

Blend to taste.  I blend mine a long time because I like it thick and creamy-smooth, like a milkshake.  Some people like theirs blended lightly so that the fruit is still chunky.

For those blood types that don't eat dairy, I suggest substituting for the yogurt, a good protein powder, such as NAP formula for your blood type, or a good soy, rice and/or egg white protein powder.  Here a link to a good egg white formula.  CLICK

Or, you can add nut butters, or a chuck of Chevrie (goat cheese).
I try and use my Power Drink as an opportunity to get some extra beneficials in my diet, and since I'm not a snacker, this also gives me a chance to get some great fruits.




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.
