Quoted from Brighid45
At which point I put down my book and said, "Who has lost and kept off fifty pounds this past two years? Who has normal blood pressure and blood sugar?" The coworker, who has been yo-yo dieting since I've met her, put on an extra twenty pounds by her own admission, and just spent two weeks taking care of her husband after his quintuple bypass, went red and shut up.


Oh Brig, that's priceless!  Way to go!

Quoted from teri
An understandable dilemma, Dr. D, though me thinks that possibly you under-estimate the "average person". Either that, or your followers are not "average people".


I don't believe BTD/GTD adherents qualify as "average" people.  This may sound condescending, but it has been my experience that "average" people prefer to complain about problems instead of taking action to fix them.  Them prefer to numb their minds to pain, frustration, etc., by staying too busy, eating or drinking too much, or other vices.

From another point of view: People don't like pain.  Change is painful.  Therefore, people are only willing to change when they are convinced that the pain of changing is less than the pain of NOT changing.  That is how it played out for me.  I spent years believing I had "depression", hoping for a "magic pill" that that would cure me (depression is a symptom, not a disease in its own right, I don't care what the APA says!) (and once you've been diagnosed with "depression", everything that's wrong with you henceforth is also "depression", if the doctor isn't interesting in or capable of figuring out what is really wrong with you).  After 10+ years with 7 different prescription drugs, and spending most of 2006 playing "World of Warcraft" for 6-12 hours a day (my own particular vice), I finally woke up and decided I would have to take responsibility for getting well.  That decision set my feet on the path that eventually led to the BTD, and then the GTD.

Ok, sorry for ranting, I got a bit carried away...

Drive55, I hear you. I used to subcontract my health to doctors. What I mean by that is I just basically did what they suggested or told me to do. And even though I was a healthy eater and followed a healthy lifestyle, what the BTD and Dr. D showed me is that I have a lot more control of my health than I ever thought. I will never subcontract my health to doctors again. I may employ them from time to time, but I will never put them in control of my health.

Exactly, Don! Though, I had arrived at this way of thinking about 2 years before finding the BTD. Always seemed to have a closed mind towards "diets". It was the "live blood analyst" guy that I hired to show me what was going on in my blood who told me about the BTD. The point I was trying to make about the "average person" was that I don't think it is going to be  the "average person" (as described by D55) who will buy the GTD book (hope I'm wrong about that actually). I think it will be someone who is already on the path of self-health who will be steared in the direction of the GTD somewhere along the way. Anyway, that's how it worked for me. But then again, I wasn't "looking" for a diet book. For someone looking for just that, they will probably find the GTD sooner, and hopefully give it a good try.


I'm onto you, 'euphoria'

I can relate...  I got so tired of the pain and no one being able to determine why or what would make it better that I didn't have a choice but to look everywhere...  When someone pointed me in a direction that might help, I went...

Fortunately, it ended up with me finding BTD, and picking it up again after I had dropped it once...  It is a bit early to tell what the results are going to be with the GTD, but so far, I am really happy with the way I feel after 1 week.

I haven't been on a scale since I started, but don't really need to lose weight, only continue to clear the toxins and inflammation and maybe build some muscle to hold the bones together...

I also like Don's likeness to subcontracting my health to someone else.  No one cares about how I feel more than me, so why should I let them run the show?

I trashed my reply, too, since it wouldn't make much sense without the context.

Thank you for making that observation, sometimes it's easy to forget how far I've come.  Remembering how true that is makes me even more happier!

I thought I had posted on this thread but maybe I didn't - can't seem to find it anyway.  I sent an e-mail to this gal about her "review" and told her, among other things....., that her review was about as scientific as hospital housekeepers gossiping in the breakroom. These pompous know-nothings get on my nerves - only because they may keep an unwell person from getting help. Not that the unwell person wouldn't be interested but those looking after them might not. I've decided this GTD is majorly catching. Of course, I have a tendency to get really excited about something different that has to do with health issues when it makes all kinds of sense to me.  That has not happened very many times in my life.... Sad to say.  Anyway, people around me know this, so when I start improving and showing obvious results, they get really excited too. My children and their wives and their wives' families are sitting up and taking notice. Big time. So I mean to be a success with this if there is any way possible.  Just for instance, some of you may remember me complaining about the lack of REAL yogurt on the market. Well, I found some that I felt pretty sure was, but yesterday evening I gave it a big trial. I had a totally compliant lunch so there wouldn't be any after-affects of something lurking around, waited about five hours before I did the  test. I ate a whole cup of this yogurt with a little maple syrup stirred in it. Man, was that stuff good!!! and felt SOOOOOOOO good in my stomach! Okay, well and good - but the next test was what my stomach felt like when I ate something else later. A couple of hours later I ate a light meal and there were no stomach pains whatsoever!!!!! I slept great last night and have had NO stomach pains today. So I think anyone would agree that I can indeed eat this yogurt! I am so happy to have a good source of calcium that I can eat and enjoy. I feel so good I can hardly sit still - about the only times I sit for any length of time is when I am on this computer and eating!!!!!!! With the histories some of us have, it is no wonder that we among all people know how to appreciate the absolute bliss of really feeling well.

look at the amount of drug ads you see in your Time magazine and the review makes sense...anything that is going to lower the profits of Time drug advertisers is not going to be looked on in favour
