Well the genotype site asked me to authorize a credit card charge for renewal this morning. I thought about it for a while. I came to the conclusion that I wasn't going to renew. Nothing against the diet, I like it fine but I haven't found much information that wasn't in the book. I tend to find more here as well as a higher rate of posting. I might try to renew in 6 months to a year or so. Anyhow if any one on that site wonders where I went to feel free to tell them. Same user name on both sites.

Ditto... although I'm not Kristin over there...     I haven't been very active over there the last month or so, so I doubt I will be missed.

That wipes out half the nomads, though (just kidding all you lovely wanderers on the Genotype site)

My subscription ends on 3/31 and I decided not to renew either. Things are really happening on this board. I have learned so much, being a newbie and all.

I will not authorize renewal either......I can't seem to make use of the site....I only use the journal cuz the other meal calculators are too complicated.....the meal plans are good for a little inspiration, but I never really eat those meals... sorry.(if I did I would really be losing weight....) I'm trying to put my finger on the problem...see the meal plans are too specific for me...what if I can't get that exact food...or don't like cod? I wonder if it would work better if they gave exchanges....a mix and match menu?  (I know, I know,  a lot of work...)

Done today as well. I think the site will attract alot of short term users, due to the cost.
This place will always be a community of steady people.
  
I like the GT diet but don't really recommend it as a starting diet for people. I do think that a good understanding of the BTD helps to understand  and follow the GT diet.  The food lists get more complicated as Peter's books progress BTD-LR4YT-GTD.

I disagree. The food lists are as simple as ER4YT, it's just a little more complicated to figure out which lists to use. The fact that you know and have understanding of BTD is coloring your view of GTD. If you view GTD with 'fresh eyes' it is really very simple, once you discover your GT. Perhaps more so than ER4YT and yet a more powerful diet for most in spite of the simplicity.

I'm just grateful that Dr. D. has this forum for us to discuss the GTD, even if he can't contribute.. because of the GTD website.

has anyone done the comparison with other weight loss sites?
I believe they re all around the same.....besides those are one size fit alls!! and lack the scientific background in which GTD is based upon.....

*The GenoType Diet online program is just $4 a week, billed quarterly (every 13 weeks). Your credit card will be automatically charged $52 at the time of registration and every 13 weeks thereafter. You may cancel at any time and receive a refund for the unused portion of your subscription, other than a minimum 5-week charge of $20, which is nonrefundable.

so all in all, people eventually find out ....

but its human to complain

I've found that the meal plans were cute, except when a major food was repeated in one day, but the logistics of that are not practical enough for me----If I am going to follow a meal plan I need to have the food in the fridge already, rather than open up the internet and find that I need x and y today which I don't have. I've become less involved in the GTD site too, though it did look promising, but on the whole I am parsimonious enough to want to stick with the wonderful free gift of the BTD site. Thank you once again Peter D.

considering Dr D wrote the book, he will not let waterfront distortion his 'masterpiece'.....so changes are to be expected, and only for the better, always!
so stay tuned!

Quoted Text
Dr D
I like playing with computers!

However, you make some excellent points, not the least of which that Waterfront is linked with Random House, and my not allowing them to do the GenoType site would be like my saying that I can't go on Oprah because I have tickets for the Knicks that night. No because of the money, but because of their phenomenal market reach.

The book is really good!    

Once you figure out your Genotype, it's simple and easy to follow, and I'm getting a much more varied diet with the Genotype choices.  My weight is still staying down, effortlessly, even with the addition of some cheeses!

Lola, they lowered the price didn't they?  It was $65. I saw it.   I think they should have charged less than the other sites, say, $2.99 a week, to build a customer base and then raise it after it grew awhile.. It's too new to be up there with the Big Boys, like weight watchers who's been around 30 years. Just my opinion.

There are some different folks on the GTD site also, so don't give up on it yet if you can afford it!
You can help them, too.

Wow.  I would love to eat 1 serving of red meat a week.  My body wants beef and lamb.  I avoid it, of course, but wouldn't it be nice?  I would really love to have a steak just every once in a while.  Is this really an option, or do you think they just put it on there to help people feel better about falling off the wagon?  Doesn't make much sense to me.

By saying "limit or avoid," I think Dr. D. means exactly what he says, otherwise, why would he have said it that way? Now, I feel pretty certain that I will never be able to eat a steak again, but many people don't have the problems I do with beef. I don't know whether it is an allergy or something else, but I know that I react much more violently than a lot of people. My brother has a terrible problem with it, but his symptoms are different from mine. He gets very nauseous and has upset stomach. I start having terrible pain in various parts of my body besides not being able to digest it which causes what feels like an awful case of indigestion. I have never gotten nauseated from eating it, though, or had any upset stomach. My niece's entire digestive tract was totally inflamed and she was in critical condition from it until finally they figured out that she had an "allergic reaction" to beef. She is scared to death of the stuff. This condition came on very suddenly and she had always enjoyed beef and dairy products immensely before that. Both my sons are still able to enjoy steaks fairly often so I'm hoping it won't come to this for them. They do try to be careful about not overdoing dairy and beef because of the family history.

Ribbit, as a nursing mother, you may need it. Maybe lamb would be less offensive. Give it a try!

That's an interesting point.  Especially nursing a B baby (if it makes any difference...but I do wonder if my cravings are related to what the baby needs).  I'm usually fine with my diet.  But there are days when I really, really feel like I need some red meat.  I don't eat it, but for some reason I feel like beef would do me good.  Just occasionally.

I am a bit out of touch with your baby Ribbit - how old now? My grandson is now 7 months old, and is either an A or a B, wish I knew. He loves watermelon, banana, rice cereal and pumpkin I think, but when he goes onto animal protein he will be given the lighter meats as he already seems to have allergies to animal products through the breastmilk. His mother is lactose intolerant, and thinks that beef and soy are causing excema.He has never had dairy products. She is becoming more or less vegan in the meantime.I am trying to spot his bloodtype by watching his food preferences and behaviour, and due to enormous activity and precociousness I suspect he could be B.He'll be one of those kids who don't think they are alive unless they are kicking a ball!

don t make unnecessary waves!
BT store is right on homepage and GTD sups are available with a click of your mouse.
http://www.4yourtype.com/start_gtd.asp

you can t look at the Food list on GTD website, without registering, that s logical, right?

but for that, you have your book, so no worries.
