Dr. D'Adamo has posted a new calculator to help people determine whether the BTD or GTD would be a better approach for meeting their health objectives.

A few people on this forum have suggested that they felt better on the BTD before switching to the new genotype diet. I wondered if these were they same people that the calculator determines would be better served using the BTD approach.

I did well on the BTD but I sense that I am doing even better on the GTD, and this is virtually what my results suggest on the new calculator.What a genius is our Dr D.!

I'm still sorting things out on the GTD and will be for some time--personalizing the food plan is going to take a while--but already I can feel a difference, a change for the better. I miss the BTD because it's familiar, but the GTD just *fits* somehow, in ways the BTD didn't for me.

I just said in another thread that the things that the GTD is helping me with are much more specific than the items that are in the quiz.  They are fine tuning kinds of things, but they are making a dramatic difference for me.  So I am not surprised that the BTD is recommended, but I KNOW that the GTD is where I belong.

I still will persue the GTD, even tho I don't think I feel better. The hunter diet is so similar to O nonnie anyway (altho there's a chance I may be a gatherer).
There are other things going on in my life along with a bad cold wave, so I'm not quite sure what's up.

I also have confidence in Dr. D that this GTD is a step better that BTD as there is more research & the blood type is considered in one's GT.
Again, Dr. D., thanks for your hard work & helping so many people out there.

I will check out the new calculator, but I need to give more time to the GTD before I know which one is better for me. Too soon for me to vote.
Okay, I did the calculator, twice, each time different because of the answers not clear yeses or nos, and both times it overwhelmingly recommended the genotype diet. So that's what I've been shifting over to lately. Will have to wait at least a few more weeks.
I did great on the btd, but found the Ononnie diet a wee restrictive. Fingers crossed.
I know it will all work out great for me one way or the other, I'm so far ahead of where I was pre-Dr. D!

I took the quiz and answered yes to three choices. A solid bar on GTD, and no bar on BTD, which makes sense since I'm feeling so much better on the GTD, and I'm not hungry all the time like I used to be.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

I really enjoyed the calculator. Thanks Dr. D.  I think the Genotype is more fine tuned than the blood type diet, for instance, chicken was neutral on the BTD but an avoid on the Genotype for me, and I always had an intolerance to chicken.

I would much rather have the reasoning behind the test spelled out, so I can read it and decide for myself, rather than just answering these questions.  BTD was recommended to me by a slight margin, but when I changed the answer to the food allergy question to no, GTD won considerably.

I am feeling better on the GTD than on the BTD, but it isn't a fair comparison because I am more compliant to the serving suggestions of the GTD than I was in the BTD.  In the BTD, I was more focused on simply avoiding the avoids, but my mindset changed while reading GTD, and I may be feeling better simply because I'm eating more vegetables and less meat/dairy.

Going through some sort of gluten withdrawal symptoms on my new hunter diet but otherwise love the new beneficial food choices I have....first time I bought millet, buckwheat and Quinoa (makes a great couscous like dish) and along with rice make up my carbs ...I do miss my spelt bread but it's a black dot avoid....used to have a slice everyday but now i don't. Loving cranberry juice and curry and turmeric are nice spices. I love chick peas and I'm allowed some hard cheeses now which I miss on the BTD since I am from an Italian background and grew up eating them. Lemon and lime are sprucing up my salad dressings now. With chocalate being a super beneficial I have to control myself because i am a dark chocaholic. The only thing I am curious about is nutritional yeast

Hey Kristin, what a dilemma. Does your gut feeling or your head come into this decision? I would not know what to do.
Keep us informed

This is how mine came out too!....and I haven't even tried the GTD as yet as my book has not arrived over here as yet!  It should be here in 4 days time.  I had mostly yes answers except for weight, hunger, thyroid & hypertension.  I tend to be slightly underweight with low blood pressure....

Any comments  

Cheers

This is so awesome.  The GTD rated a high margin against the BTD.  I am feeling better, which I thought that I was already feeling pretty good for my age.
DrD is truly a great thinker and scientist.

Hello, everyone! I justgot the ebook yesterday! I can't stop reading it.It recommended BTD, but the BTD never really did it for me, 100%. This, the Teacher Diet, looks like it's bang on. The foods are what I love and have craved. I can't wait to get back on track with my health. After reading the TeacherDiet and excercise regimen, I was saying-"Yeah...That's what I need!"I've been asking, "GTD, where have you been all my life?" I have no doubt it'll do wonders. Bye for now!

The quiz reccomended the BTD for me, however, I've been on the GTD for about 2 weeks now and the constant hunger I used to have has disappeared and I actually know what it feels like to be full now..so I'm sticking with the GTD...I was never fully able to get where I wanted to on the BTD..so time will tell :O) and hopefully the GTD will clear up the remaining issues I have...I also went through a heavy duty detox the first 10 days..so that tells me my body sees the GTD foods as higher quality

Mine came back with two lines for GT which rather surprised me as the only question I answered with Yes was the weightloss one.  I thought the GT was mainly meant to address the medical problems which I don't really have.  Only been on it a week so too soon to tell very much but as it is so similar to the O secretor I'm not really expecting a lot.  Can someone please repeat how to add genotype to profile?  I couldn't see where to do it.

I guess I have been following the gtd for a couple of weeks at about 75% compliance.  Now I think after all this constant rain in CA, I am getting sick.  Really stuffed up nose/head and feeling pretty
down.  I am going to spend some time rereading the gtd book and making some compliant soups.

I am wondering from my old "zone" days, about the amount of arachidonic acid in the gatherer plan.
It seems like it may be a bit heavy, with the dairy and turkey.  Not sure if this makes sense, but I think I will make sure to take a flax/borage oil to see if it helps.  I seem to be retaining more water,
bloated sort of and puffy.  Not really sure what's going on.  Suspect the dairy though, which I was loving.  May just revert back to the btd and follow it strickly for a bit.....

I just did the calculator and the btd came out as higher, so I think I may just do it for a while......

I am so very happy that Dr. D put this quiz on the BTD Home page !!!!!  

I scored way big for the BTD.

Now I can have my banana, yogurt, walnuts, more cheese, more fish I like, blueberries, eggs, butter and milk.  I feel better just reading about this.

But the best part of all, I can continue to refuse to eat chicken and tell people it is a legitimate reason because it is an avoid on my diet.

OK Im confused.  I put a survey up by blood type, but my comments got added to the end of this one.  Is that because the surveys were similar?  I was curious by BT which diet seemed to suit the people.
