Things I craved was actually an avoid for me.



Karen-Mandi's mom, warm welcome to BTD and the forum!!

I have been told and heard more times than I care to think, that usually what you crave is what you are allergic or intolerant to. Sure is true in my case.      I really hate that, cause dang wheat and dairy sure taste gooddddddd!!!!!!!!!!

Well, my blood testing kit should come hopefully by the end of this week. And my book should be in on Monday. They had to order one in for me.

Again, I can't wait to get going. I am cutting out on wheat, and sugar already. Also most dairy.

Mitzi, gotta say, I'm really proud of you!!! You inspire me (and believe me I need it )   After you find out your BT, you'll **really** be rockin'

Hi, Mitzi,

I'm chiming in here because I'm from Canada, too (Victoria).  I'm too new (today is Day 4) to give you any advice, but I was lucky enough to know my blood type, so I could plunge right in.  Have sent away for my secretor test, too, as I want to follow the plan as accurately as possible.  

Welcome, neighbour!

Thankyou for the compliment Italy. I hope I will eventually become a contributer to this board as well. I could sit here and read all day.

And Welcome, mondurvic, neighbor to the west. I'm from MB.
How's the diet going for you?

Thanks for asking how I'm doing, Mitzi.

I'm doing satisfactorily on the diet, which is an odd word to use, but the best I've got.  I am limiting myself to Type B foods, including neutrals, with an overemphasis on the "worst" neutrals - butter, cream, beef, maple syrup, cheese - and all of it to excess.

Nonetheless, I consider this "satisfactory" because it is so much better than the way I was eating before I started - lots of ice cream, chocolate, daily buffets, etc.  And the big problem for me right now is that my place is being painted, which means ten days of painters underfoot from early morning on, furniture in huge, ghostly piles (drop cloths), living out of boxes stacked up in the bathtub (I just moved in), and S-T-R-E-S-S.  As in all things of this nature, things go wrong - people don't show up, rooms are painted the wrong colour, the vent to the dryer doesn't work, spewing filthy water all over the floor, etc.

All small problems in the greater scheme of life, but difficult nonetheless, which is why eating even somewhat better is acceptable to me right now, and, indeed, helps me to cope better with the surrounding craziness.  Once I have my kitchen, home and life back to myself, I expect to be able to tighten up more of the other guidelines.  

My secretor test arrived today, and I expect I will have my results back by the time I can function better here.

How are you doing?  How have you started out?

Judy, I can imagine what life is like for you right now. It always gets worse before it's better. (Except for the BTD, I hope ) You'll love your new clean house later and it will all be worth it.
Believe me I know the STRESS though.
At least you're doing the diet "satisfactorily". One step at a time.

As far as myself and the diet goes; well I have cut out wheat, sugar and dairy. I really don't know my blood type for sure yet, but have ordered the test. I'm guessing I'm a non-O.
