Well, Time Magazine and Health Magazine have reviewed GenoType and basically said, "there's no science behind it" - it's so disappointing as I would have hoped they would have become a little more sophistocated - or at least would have READ the book.  If you are so inclined, you can write a letter to the editor online - I know I will be doing so!

I put about as much credence in "Time" as I do in any tabloid/gossip rag.  This is about par for them....  "Time" wouldn't know science if it walked up and broke a  bell jar across its forehead!

I expected as much...

As one of my friends once said, 'You can always spot the pioneers. Their the ones with the arrows in their backs.'

Basically the biggest issue is with my being an ND and not an MD. I work in a small clinic and not a large university. I attempt to produce paradigm shifts in an environment where people get rewarded for new developments that verify the existing paradigm.

I lost count of all the negative reviews of my first book. But sometime during the last ten years, someone else managed to discover 'personalized nutrition.'

Honestly, I could care less what Time or MDs or universities or yadda yadda blah blah blah believes. I know what I know, and I know the BTD, and now the GTD, work for me, and I'll tell anyone who asks exactly HOW I know that. I have gone through many years of dieting with little or no results, have had doctors tell me I was weak, I was lazy, I was destined to be fat all my life, I needed pills, I needed surgery, I needed willpower . . .I tried the low-fat diet, macrobiotics, the Zone, the Carb Addicts diet, Weight Watchers, and many more--and NONE of them worked. And I TRIED. I tried to lose weight and get healthy, only to find I was right back where I started--and sometimes even worse off than before. Now I'm finding healing for the first time in my life, a process that started in October 2004 with the BTD and is ongoing with the GTD. There have been some bumps in the road, but they're down to my own foibles, not the elegant and profound truths of the Blood- and Genotype Diets.

So when some doctor or magazine tells me there's no science behind the BTD or the GTD, I just laugh and walk away. They don't know jack. Actually, they don't know Dr. D and the real power for change that is the heart of his work. Too bad--their loss.

Here's an interesting article, written in 2004 by Food International, an article that just might have inspired Dr. D. to be the first to find the relationships and write about them, all before 2010!

If one does not follow the herd to the end of the cliff and jump off, one is considered to be a black sheep and weird.  

Innovators, creators, artists, cutting edge medical doctors, all take the hard rap in the beginning for any new creation, science, technology, etc.

But the proof is in the pudding.  And right now I'm a big happy bowl of GT pudding that is feeling better than I ever have in my life.  

It's the people that matter the most, not the machine.  In my business of songwriting, singing and performing, it's crucial that I believe this because I don't fit the 'hollywood' machine protocol and 'box.'

Carry on Dr. D... you are leading us to full blooded balanced lifes not to the edge of the cliff where all those other poor cows are headed!  One can only stand off to the side waving the new GT flag and hope a few will stray away from the herd!!!

Ha.. what a vision!

Why oh why are people resistant to positive change? Sometimes evolution seems so slow.

Interestingly enough, people at my work who have heard me and a few other co-workers rave about the BTD for years and showed little interest - have shown interest in the Genotype diet. One of them used to be a science teacher, and this appealed to him, go figure.

It is also fascinating to watch people's reactions to the food lists. People don't like diets that don't say you can eat everything you want, just simply less of it. I told one co-worker, who had shut the book after reading the avoids for the type we figured she was, that the #1 diet success tip Dr. D recommends in this book is that it's about what you eat not what you avoid that moves you forward. I then asked her if there were any foods on the superfoods list that she liked and would eat daily. She said she hadn't really looked at those as much because she was so focused on the avoids. Later she asked to borrow my book to look up the superfoods!

Lastly, I can't help but think of the political ramifications of believing in things that actually work to improve your health. What would happen to all the wealthy drug companies? The proof is in the pudding. More and more successful diets have BTD components. They'll catch up eventually. We're the lucky ones who don't have to wait!

The change is inevitable. I think the drug companies will figure out a way to make it their own; probably working on it now.

Quoted from AnnA
Well, Time Magazine and Health Magazine have reviewed GenoType and basically said, "there's no science behind it" ...


I think what aggravates me is that this statement is usually always the first line of attack!  I think it is very important to educate oneself before making statements that are a personal attack on someone's hard work.  This applies to any area, not just medicine and nutrition.

If people took the time to search medical literature, or a search engine like pubmed, they would find that the research to back all of Dr. D.'s work does exist.  However, because it is not all neatly compiled in a textbook, this requires work.  In my experience, people, and this includes physicians mostly, are too lazy to do the work.  Dr. D. DOES the work!  

I think I take a comment like this so personal because I consider myself to be an extremely science oriented individual.    Most of you are probably aware that the foundation of my education lies in Forensic Science.  I spent my undergrad years being told, "You have to listen to the science," and being asked, "What is the science telling you?"  It would go against my personal ethics, all that I believe in, to ask someone to take a supplement, or follow a specific way of eating, if I didn't KNOW that it was backed by something solid.

On the flip side, for years people have said that the BTD isn't backed by science, but my question is, if it doesn't work, then why have so many people been helped by it?  With that side, have not the last ten years been one of the greatest scientific experiments ever?  To answer that question, just browse this forum.........

I'm done.  Stepping off soapbox and exiting stage left...

At this point, a great way that I see to overcome reviews like these (aside from word-of-mouth circulation, which is, of course, amazingly powerful), is for someone to collect a substantial body of phenomenal evidence to support that, in fact, the Genotype Diet does actually work, even if it might not seem "logical"... and that it works in a far superior and more long-lasting way than these other, conformist diets.

Last year, in a research methods class, I turned in a short suggestion that one possible clinical trial for the Blood Type Diet could entail the sequestering of research subjects in a controlled confines, whereby all their food would be supplied to them, and the efficacy of the diet could be most introvertibly established.

After having spent a few days at the IFHI convention in Phoenix last year, where I had the experience of having our food supplied to us, I've been convinced for some time that such a thing is definitely possible, and I would love to perform -- or see performed -- such a study to validate these D'Adamo diets.

Of course, you can only validate something so much, because dishonest people with some ulterior motive will never give you the satisfaction of admitting that, indeed, you have just validated whatever you've clearly just validated.  But the point is never to satisfy the corrupt; it's to satisfy the honest, because they're the true backbones of society anyway... they're the reliable ones with real money to spend, whose acknowledgement you're really after.  

All the others -- parasites of mind and stature -- will never admit it, but they do rely upon these people for just about everything in the end, including what to believe in, so targeting the honest is always your best policy.  Everything trickles down from them, in my calculation.  But they must be won over first, and thoroughness of evidence is their one essential requirement.
