Well, my opinion is,if you once live after your bloodtyp you always must do. In my nutrian job I have seen clients who don't like to live BTD all their live. But if they stop living that way,(mostly they lived very strict all foods wich are recommended) they have trouble all over their body. The gut is the most revoltating organ. The skin is looking like moonsurface etc.Do You know such efects too ?  


have a nice d(w)ay!

I know when your following strictly and than you eat an avoid, you will have unpleasant results

like eating white flour- pain comes back from artheritis

like eating sugar- your mouth, gums hurt

maybe others can give more examples??

Pen, I believe the same thing.  Your body thanks you for the good food, and if you try to return to the old ways, bad things will happen.  I haven't tried to go off the diet (why would I want to, except to change to GTD?), but I imagine it's impossible without poor results.  But your clients will figure that out for themselves without you having to tell them over and over again.

I can't see myself eating any other way anymore.  Although I have not tested it by going back, I thoroughly enjoy my way of eating now so much that I have no desire to "go back".  I'm following the GTD very strictly now & at first I thought it seemed hard but now I'm used to it & I love it.

I'm certainly not interested in going back to my previous habits of living off frozen pizza and other processed junk.  My health still has a lot of improving to do (which I hope can be accomplished with more time and the GTD), but I'm still much better off now than I was before!

Yes, I agree.  I've read other posts like this.  People say that they're more sensitive to wheat after being on the BTD.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Our bodies adapted to what we were feeding them, though maladapted is a better term.  Once we eliminate those foods, our body goes back to its natural state.

However, when I have gone off the diet for long, I maladapted to many avoids again.  Not wheat, but then I didn't really try that one.  I never, however, felt as bad as I did before discovering BTD.  I'd slowly gain weight and slow down, but no major misery.  If I'd started eating wheat again, that may be a different story.

I have found that I had to come to an understanding with my body.  If I tried to be near 100% compliant, it would revolt on me. While I try to be fairly compliant, I also allow myself an avoid or two each day.  I've found that this strategy keeps both of us happy, and my body doesn't make me feel like c**p when I eat too well.

The soul and the body are two interconnected, yet separate entities, and communciations between the two are necessary to find balance.  Paying attention to your body, and its reactions to your food intake, is important.

I think there are some improvements with the sensitivity effect and the genotype diet.  I haven't really tested it yet, but my body seems to be becoming more forgiving.

Hi, misslecop! If you try out the Genotype diet, you'll probably find it a better fit than the pure BTD you've been on. I'm guessing. Nice to see a post from you again, welcome back!

I have no desire to return to my pre-BTD days and ways of eating. I am much, much less sick and much, much healthier since starting BTD, and now transitioning into the GTD. There is nothing good to go back to, aside from the occasional piece of birthday cake, etc.

I think everyone has a different experience with this.  Initially, after eating according to BTD, I would have strong reactions to avoids.  However, over the years I have found that by being consistently compliant (and not just with food, but with other lifestyle factors) and seeking to treat imbalances in my body (through TCM and homeopathy), I can now handle avoids with much less damage.

Could someone please explain to me why soybeans are "beneficial", but tofu (which, of course, I love) is "avoid"?

Thank you!

This past winter (starting in November, actually) I really strayed from my BTD diet.  I told myself it was due to the holidays and the new gtd diet coming out.  I guess I figured I could "enjoy" (and I use that term loosely) some avoids before clamping down again on the new gtd diet.  Anyhow, my stomach paid the price.  I had many stomach issues.  However, I realized that I felt this way quite a bit before discovering the btd and, back then, thought feeling those pains was normal!  Go figure!

So I'm not sure if going off the btd for a bit created problems for me or just made me realize all the problems I previously had that I chose to ignore.  But I am thinking it is a combination of that and becoming more sensitized to the avoids I had avoided for so long.

Higher Ground, a revolt is a rebellion.  If your body revolts against something you're giving it, it's rebelling.  It doesn't like it.  It's getting angry and saying, "I don't like that.  Don't do it anymore."  That's a revolt.

Try a slice of 2% single cheese after a couple of years of BTD or GTD.  It's hard to imagine that at some point I actually liked that stuff.
