Hi All

I was in physical rehab for the last 4 weeks. While there, one of the therapists told me about the ER4YBT diet and I found the website online. I was morbidly obese at the end of April (390 pounds) and decided to stop drinking..... Permanently and I went on Atkins. While I did lose a lot of weight (about 60 pounds), I felt poorly. No energy and always tired. My meals consisted of eggs and sausage for breakfast. Cucumber, tomato and either tuna salad or chicken. Dinners consisted of either grilled chicken salads, grilled shrimp salads, supplemented by roasted chicken. I ate a LOT of chicken.
I developed an excruciating pain in my right groin area which was not arthritis which I do have but this pain was much too severe. I wound up in the hospital where after a five days of not eating Atkins, the pain subsided somewhat.
I was admitted to a physical rehab where I found about the ER4YBT diet. I ordered the book but could not get it until I got discharged last Tuesday. While there, I read all I could on the website where I discovered that I should NOT be eating chicken. shrimp or red meat.  

I tried to stick to the ER diet while at rehab, but was limited by the choices of food available. Oatmeal and eggs for breakfast. I usually wound up with a Chef salad where I eventually requested turkey, no ham or cheese and a side of tuna salad, no bread. No desserts except for some grapes I asked one of the aides to buy for me. NO bread or pasta either.

At home, it is still eggs and oatmeal for breakfast. For lunch / dinner I have allowed veggies with either tuna, sardines, or turkey with EVVOO at each meal. I broiled salmon for the first time last nite.

While I look forward to finishing the book, I have to say that I notice my sinuses are not constantly clogged and that my energy level is up somewhat. I have arthritic hips and am able to walk for longer distances now.  

I ordered and received some of the supplements sold here but am waiting to finish the book prior to taking them.

I also ordered the secretor kit but have been unable to feel as if I can produce 3 ml of saliva yet. Is there any trick to this? I have been on cyclobenzaprine, meloxicam, atenolol and furosemide (for years for high BP). I wonder if they can be causing my dryout?

I look forward to finishing the book. This plan makes a lot of sense to me.  


BTW, I am down from 390 to 306.8 as of this morning. I am looking to get to about 220.


I will choose a path that's clear. I will choose free will. -RUSH

Welcome whitescorpion! You are one the path to recovery. Results are noticeable is a short amount of time and just keep getting better. Eventually you will no longer recognize the person you once were. Many blessings to you!  

You may want to read the book : "Change you genetic destiny" by Dr. D'Adamo". It is about how we are various 'genotypes'. You can get the SWAMI X-PRESS program to help determine exactly what geno type you are. It's more in depth but can fast forward your health recovery, but it is good that you are reading ERFYBT.

Welcome to a better life.

Glad your doing the secretor test -- it was a big eye opener for me.

It's been years since I did mine but it seems to me that you can work at collecting it so to speak. (several little spits  )

the one thing I do remember is don't brush your just teeth before collecting spit.  If your gums bleed even a little it can contaminate the test.

keep up the good work toward discovering all about your genetic individuality and physiology

you are showing the world it definitely can be done!

your will and curiosity is in fact the way!

ask away if you have questions

In time you may indeed get off your meds.

I suggest getting  a SWAMi and get the best diet for yourself.

Welcome~


So glad to hear that health care practitioners are actually directing people to this way of life.

Give her/him a big hug from me!

whitescorpion, good for you for diving right in!  Sometimes we have to get in a difficult situation before we are really propelled into the solution.  At least I've found it to be that way.  A serious illness motivated me to follow Dr. D'Adamo's recommendations with great dedication and it has paid off.  

A number of members of the Forum here have lost large amounts of weight.  Many people have decreased their meds or even been able to eliminate them.  The more you post your experiences and progress, the more people you will meet who will be able to share experiences, encouragement and ideas with you.

I wish you steadily improving health and hope.  

One thing that helped me work up enough saliva to do the saliva test was to drink a lot of water before trying to spit.  Give the water some time to work its' way through your system.  Even mild dehydration will lessen body fluids.



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.

Good to see you posting!

Another vote here for going the Swami route. I believe that as you continue to see results and begin to feel healthier, you'll be inclined to hop aboard anyway. Might as well do it now. As Dr. D observed, type AB's can have the most dramatic results of all. My own results were indeed dramatic, and I am enjoying the renewal that he spoke of.

Welcome good work so far.. keep it up and you will feel better so soon it's near impossible to grab..

some sups might be needed but food is more important always..

get a 'bullet' to make smoothies to make fresh vegetables and drink them to replenish what we lost...

eat fruit whole always..

you will do great in no time.. I see Super Beneficials as meds..

going off meds?.. carefully.. discuss but don't get discouraged- it will happen mostly- in time..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Thank you all so much for the warm welcome.  

I have always been one to go slowly so I want to finish the book before doing anything else. I am sure I will have questions (I usually drive my Supervisors and others crazy because of my attention to detail).  

I would like to read more about SWAMI before diving in. Thanks for the tips regarding saliva collection.

I have stopped taking the Ultracets prescribed for me as I read that Tramadol is addictive and changes brain chemistry similar to antidepressants, I never received a warning from the Doctor who prescribed it.  

Thanks again and my mind is wide open.

you ll be in better hands from now on!

mainly your own, Dr D has made his science available to all, and it is up to us to do the work......
the more you find out about your individuality the more you will discover Dr D has already done the work for you
