I agree... both Victoria and Henriette...

It seems that B's need to be struggling with a major health issue to reap clearly noticeable, tangible results from the BTD. I remember that when I started BTDing... I only had to make a couple changes in my diet and not much else. I did feel much better with those changes... but it took time to really experience the fullness of that.

And the balance thing... such a sticky wicket...   I find it to be so important to find the right balance in all things... not just the diet portion... but I am constantly working with feeling in balance and falling out again. What works one day does not work the next.

It really is a dance to be a B...

that doesn't exactly fit into this threat but I was wondering what the circadian rythms of other  Bs are, and at what times of day the are more likely to feel tired etc.

I am more of a night owl, with my spirits awakening after 10 pm. It's 2:15 in the morning here in England and no signs of getting tired. Wide awake!      I just wrote 1000 words of an essay for university, I was extremely productive!

But on afternoons I am usually useless when it comes to doing brainwork, I just feel tired and if I could choose I would sit in a cafe all afternoon just to relax. However mornings between 9 and 12 are also not that bad for brainwork.

Other Bs also experience this afternoon crash?

cheers guys.

Your lifestyle sounds like it is really hard on your adrenal glands.

I was thinking that also, Don.  If you don't get in bed by 10:30 or 11 pm, your adrenals think it's a new day, and they spike their hormones for a second time.  So every day, you're aging an extra day, essentially.  That's why you have the energy slump the next day.  Your adrenals are confused about when they can have their "down time".

I'm speaking from experience.  It eventually catches up to you, and it can be seriously damaging to your health.  Check out a very informative book called Adrenal Fatigue.  I can't recall the author since I lent my copy out.  It explains the natural rhythm of the adrenal glands and the symptoms of adrenal fatigue.

Italybound knows the author's name.

I can totaly relate you, since I know myself I like nights, I hate days.. When I am working during the day I am happy that my schedule is good, but otherwise I go to bed around 6 am, yeah when everybody gets up, right now, I am not working because I am sick, about three months now, I have a extreme fatique. If you are curious you can read my post from Dr. D library under Mononuclesis & Fatique. a lot of good posting there. I follow fatique book because ERYF book has shows food based on Beneficial, Neutral, and Avoid, it makes me confused, is that means if food neutral, is it good or bad? but fatique book has Super beneficials, beneficials, allow frequently, allow infrequintly, and avoids..

Brenna:

Dr. D has a specific set of supplements for fatigue-fighting in his Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia.  You should definitely pick up a copy.  It's uncanny amazing.

For example, I'm a type O, and he recommends, among other things, sarsparilla root for fatigue in O's.  Well, I picked some up and MAN has it given me energy!

Also, he recommends dandelion root for metabolism.  I bought some and have been taking it, and it has reduced my appetite immensely.  Actually, I don't know which has reduced my appetite, the dandelion or the sarsparilla, but it has definitely changed drastically for the better since starting those two things.

When I was in college I tutored Maths and Scince in the afternoons - I'd get so sleepy!!! I asked if I could put a cot in the storage closet...It wasn't until they realized I was a good teacher and offered me a full-time position {wasn't even graduated yet} that they said they would. (Un)Fortunately  Ifound a better paying job so it never happened.

We are in good hands however - Most "genius" have been known to need their afternoon Power Nap.

Especially hard for me, and its been 3 years now, is getting back to the 'normal 9-to-5 routine. I spent 10-15 years working Grave/Swing/Split shifts.

No matter What I try - every few months I have to just turn everything off on a weekend, and just recharge the "Olde Batteries".

Live foods, Juices, and BTD even, only seem to go so far me in terms of Fatigue.

This is SO interesting.

I always loved to stay up late at night.  I did most of my work when I was in college after midnight.  Of course, I was exhausted in the afternoons.  Since I've had kids and have had regular jobs, I've had to force myself to get on a regular schedule, but my natural tendency is to want to stay up late.  

I am aware again about the importance of balance, not just with food but with sleep, exercise, work and play, etc.  Again, I assume everyone needs it, but us B's might need it more.  My O husband can push himself to extremes in terms of exercise without consequence.  Although he was vegetarian and macrobiotic at one point in his life, he now loves meat and can't get through a day without it.  He does not follow BTD, but just seems to know what works for him.  On the other hand, I need to be vigilant to BTD avoids, or I would eat every one of them!

The Fatigue book is newer and more complete with revised food lists for the condition and tageted supplementation recommendations.

However, the Dr. D Health protocols from the Encyclopedia are also online and are a good place to start.

I am kind in between - not an owl or lark.
Like to get to bed between 22-23 and up between 7- 8- but I can´t do that.
I feel most awake btween 10- 15 o clock.
- but when I was in my 20es I used to be able to stay up late if I wanted to - but I never was able to sleep really late like my friends- so I used a few days every week to recharge my batteries.
Today I would pefer to be able to follow my inner watch- but I can´t ! and since my future job will be teaching I´ll have to live like an lark. School starts around 8- and I live in the countryside so I need some transporttime as well.

Now at almost 4 in the afternoon friday - I´m just sooo low in energy- and I know I´ll collapse tonight on the sofa with a glass of wine and some nasty dark chocolate.
I NEVER make plans friday night !!
- I need to just relax and sleep when I feel like it - and YES there have been friday nights when I have been in bed by 21- and my daughter have looked at me like ??? - are you going now....

I think now in my mid 30ies- and 7 years into BTD - I need to REALLY follow my inner clock- and get more sleep. and earlier.

If I am fatigued I need a bit more protein and to stay away from flour products of any kind.
Also, if I am mentally fatigued by overtime at work I add extra B complex vitamins and Magnesium to my system and that helps get me back on track.  Whenever I get fatigued/run down it is because I've dipped into avoid foods because of hectic pace at work and I must rectify: extra sleep, extra Magnesium back in my system, extra B vitamins really do the trick.

My personal solution has been lots of fruits, berries and green veggies.

Mainly blueberries and strawberries, pineapple, orange and banana, parsley and fresh herbs. The difference is enormous with either one, so now I make sure to get enough of them all.
