I was just wondering if anyone cared to share any improvements they're currently experiencing on the GTD so far..it always gives me hope, keeps me thinking positively, and gives me something to look forward to I believe I'm still in the detox phase lol but my digestion gets an A+ and that's big for me!

I believe that by avoiding chicken for the first time in my life a fortnight ago when I started the GTD, I seem to have eliminated a stomach irritation that has been bothering me for the past 2 years.
Digestion is very good, especially now that I have eliminated white bread which I used as a treat on the BTD, but which had a bit of a clogging result.I am planning to stay with Warrior beneficials for a while, and later on will have some treats (tomatoes, eggplants, etc.) when I am sure about my condition.
Cheers,
Jenny

I am almost afraid to post this (knock on wood), but I haven't had a nose bleed since I began genotype about Jan 1.

Also, I don't know if this counts, but my pants keep feeling like they are going to fall off - I think I'll have to buy suspenders.  I haven't really lost weight, but maybe there's some type of other chemistry going on.

Some of my clothes were looking ragged, and I found exceptionally good buys on some clothes at Christmas, and I sure want to get my wear out of them as they are quite attractive.  At least the pants (like sweats) have the pull strings so I could cinch in the waist if I do loose inches.

Great news!

I can't really say, I've only being on BTD 4 months before GTD, so I haven't gotten anywhere near an "equilibrium" stage!  But counting them both together, I am definitely in better shape--less depression, better digestion, better sleep, relief from hypoglycemia.  As slender as I was at the outset (5'10" and 165 lbs), I've still lost about 15 lbs of fat!

I feel less bloated.  Iíve lost 1 of the 5 lbs I listed at the healthy rate of Ĺ lb a week.  I want to lose the other 5 in the spring/summer.  I need some winter fat.  I was at the high end of my weight range.  I like to stay in the middle where I feel most comfortable.  I donít feel healthy at the low end any more as I age.

My breast pain has diminished, but that isnít always constant.  It was getting worse and I am way behind in getting my 6 month recheck.  Iím hoping it is just a fluid filled cyst like Iíve had before.  I want to wait and see if the diet change helps that condition.

Is it possible you've been misdiagnosed (maybe not a Gatherer), or do you think you're detoxing?

Iím taking it slow and toe dipping.  I have removed more old foods (cheeses & fish) than Iíve added new ones.  The only new item that I added that caused me problems was goji berry juice.  Goji berries give me red bumps on my stomach.  I had a combination juice of Noni, Goji & Acai plus raspberry puree.  This week I got Noni only plus raspberry puree.  I had it in my head that Noni was an avoid on the BTD.  Iím happy I have it back again, I feel better with it.  I switched my breakfast from a hard boiled egg and banana to whey protein powder, carob powder and an apple during the work week.  On weekends I have hot quinoa with ghee and sea salt plus my apple.  Since I was allowed to have butter on the BTD, I had never tried ghee before.  I tried Paneer cheese last week.  It reminds me of the consistency of tofu.  For my salads I use olive oil and rice vinegar.  Oh yes, I am now eating cream cheese on my rice cakes.  I am also eating string cheese, but I cheated on the BTD with that anyway.  Since apples are now a superfood for me, I started putting a little bit of apple cider vinegar in my water.  I sure hope all vinegar is not bad for me, just the white, red wine and plum.

I don't think I have been misdiagnosed - I measured myself and had a friend measure myself with the same results.
I don't think I am detoxing. I think somthing in the GTD diet - or the GTD diet itself does not agree with me.

It is possible. I have eaten small amounts of organic quark since this is supposed to be beneficial on the gatherer diet. I have stopped eating it now.
