A real general answer is that there are a range of different effects.
Some foods cause mucous and congestion.
Some foods interfere with proper immune response.
Some foods hurt the digestive system, causing IBS, pain or bloating.
Some foods cause insomnia and/or restlessness.
Some foods affect the emotional balance, showing up as depression or irritability.
Some foods show no obvious reaction and work invisibly over years to later appear as a serious disease.

of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Yes, Joe, it's so true.

And some of the reasons that people sometimes feel mysterious symptoms that appear for a while, or off and on, after starting to eat right is like this (as I see it):

After a lifetime of eating foods that do some or all these things, our bodies can become somewhat non-responsive to them , at least overtly.  When we finally remove those toxic foods, the body gradually begins to wake up again on all levels and we can begin to see the damaging effects of how we have been eating and living.  It's different for different people.  It's different for Non-Secretors than for Secretors.  It's different for younger people than older.  And different for people who have already begun to see the manifestation of chronic disease than it would be for healthy or 'apparently healthy' people.

tired, pain, breathing, nose sinus, big belly, puffiness, more craving, depression, hopelessness, sleep and bathroom issues.. I think this is enough.. you decide...

the good part about BTD i no longer need to see a doctor when I don't get why I just gained 10 pounds and feel all the above.. all I need is my friend to ask, what did you eat last night?.. end of all questions.. answer self evident..    


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!
