HolisticFox, it sounds like the cells of your body are happy to be getting what they need!  

Are you eating vegetables?



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest

Lots of spinach and broccoli, and now red pepper.  I can't tell you how happy I was to see that on the "beneficial" list!

I must return to read this thread, keep grains down, keep sweeteners low including honey, rice syrup and agave; keep high gi fruits down, esp in morning, when your adrenal glands need protein, minerals, fat.
Prepare most of your own meals/food.
A little fruit and nuts as snack in afternoon.
Raw juice around 11am if possible, green salad leaves dressed with lime juice, black pepper, olive oil, two or three slices of zucchini, a little raw garlic as your salad; followed by stir-fried vegetables of different colours; and some beef steak, lamb chops, fish or poultry for lunch, maybe some brown long grain rice or brown jasmine rice; but vegetables must be most of the plate.
dinner maybe steamed veg with fish/seafood, or other protein.
Eat a little wakame or arame sea veg with your breakfast. If you like umeboshi plums, eat part of one also with breakfast.
breaky very important to set or re-set metabolism.
An early morning walk also best for weight loss.
You'll do fine in no time, this forum supports you!

Thanks for the suggestions!  I'm definitely thinking more salads would help, and protein in the morning, rather than late at night.  Some of the fun is in the tweaking.

I certainly think some salad and cooked veg is key, I need to gain back muscle and bone density, and for me, I think it is the protein in mornings plus the increase in vegetables, and salad and raw juicing, I would try not to eat late at night, as this means your digestive organs are still working, when they are meant to be resting so detoxing can be thorough and cells can rejuvinate, and for sound deep sleep.  Digestive function can slow down after 2pm.  Fasting 12 hrs a day is great, for me, this means dinner around 6pm or a little earlier, then a small meal around 6:15am before morning walk/exercise/yoga, then eating again around 8:45am to keep protein up, as am trying to strenghen adrenals and other glands.
A good salt with lots of minerals helps too, as adrenal glands need minerals to function well, and protein is needed to absorb minerals.

I'm finding that now that it's been a few weeks and I've figured out the intricacies of fitting cooking around my work schedule, making breakfasts effortless (crock pot meat cooks overnight, breakfast is always ready when I get up), and working out whenever I can, even if I don't feel like it, I'm doing GREAT.  There's no way I'd go back to raw/vegan.  30 bananas a day?  Not this little carnivore!

Wonderful!  Breakfast from the crockpot is a great idea!


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.

It makes life so much easier!  When my husband's mother bought it for us, I thought it was a joke because I was a raw vegan...  I never thought I'd use it.  Now I wish we had two!

They're not all that expensive. I think I paid $30 for my big one and $20 for my small one. That wasn't full retail price; I selected the ones on sale at Target at the time.

Ooo, Target...  There might be one an hour from here.  Maybe TJ Maxx?  I'll have to check...

Hi, it is great to know about your experience transitioning from raw-vegan to BTD. I am in the same boat so I can empathize with you at some point. I was vegetarian for 20 years, last 4 as raw-vegetarian.
I still -like you- believe in raw food, so I am eating my veggies, having my meat (raw, dehydrated as a jerky) and all my allowed seeds or nuts, deactivated first.

I certainly feel satisfied after having my meat. I did the transition overnight after reading about the BTD with no regrets and not even one stomach complaint!
I was always munching something soon after main meals during my raw-food years, so I was certainly -like yourself- depriving my body from its truly needed 'fuel'.

To the best of my knowledge it takes longer for a O- than for an O+ body to adapt to the BTD.  
I still do not feel 100% tuned though, and I think it is because of lack of exercise.
The best time to work out for an O (for cardiovascular, mental and emotional benefits) is first thing in the morning, and I am not sure if you are already doing that for better results. Any exercise later during the day will only give you the cardiovascular benefits.
You mentioned something critical: " I finally opted to take a pair of dumbbells to work because just sitting at my desk all day is driving me crazy!"
Spending too many hours sitting IS NOT FOR AN O. It is that simple!!!
Type O's who eat protein but don't exercise turn the positive effects and health benefits of the protein into a toxic situation for their bodies.
Try your workout time first thing in the morning (if you are not doing so yet) and see how you go

Another thing...Are you having some seaweed already to improve our already lazy thyroid? That is the reason which keeps our mood swings up and down.

I always wondered why many vegetarians didn't look that healthy (many raw foodie included!). BTD has absolutely answered that!

Here's another example. This guy need to start eating animal protein now!:

There are many of them available at amazon.com - both new and used at varying prices...

Holistic Fox, I'm sorry about your miscarriage.  

Sounds like you've had a lot of changes in your life and it may take a while for everything to adjust.  Even good changes in your diet can upset your body for a little while.  It's a big change to go from raw vegan to O.  Congratulations for being able to do that!

I went from eating like an O to an A, and now mostly raw.  As an A, the raw vegan diet suits me well, and I feel best when I eat that way. I still eat some eggs and a little cheese, but mostly I eat various dry beans and raw veggies.  It's been instrumental in my healing.

It still amazes me how our bodies are so different, totally based on blood type.

Posts like this make me wish we had a "like" button like on Facebook.  I like it, I just don't know what to say back.  Also, I like the quote in your siggy from Corinthians.  Thank you.

I'm working out now 2-3 times a day in smaller spurts.  I find that being more active in general is really kicking my body into gear, rather than just having a set workout time once every day or every other day.  I'm taking a dance class, walking, lifting, jogging, and still doing yoga here and there, but not as a full work out.  My body asks to be worked.

I'm taking all the supplements from the basic O pack sold on this website, plus fish oil and bladderwrack.
