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.....

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!

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.

I'm just a wandering Explorer who stumbled onto this thread. Please don't anyone throw a spear at me .

For me, this site is as good as the GTD site and its free. My one complaint about the new book vs the earlier ones is that neutral foods aren't listed. This led me to create my own chart of allowed foods for different Blood Types and Genotypes. It helps me to think positively about the diet because it only lists the foods I can eat and that includes many things that are not Superfoods. Unfortunately, copyright issues block me from sharing the chart with others, but I encourage everyone to keep focusing on what you CAN eat.

I do not plan on focusing on my neutrals just yet!! lol

eating my diamonds has so far made an enormous difference in my BMs and I can perceive how my body is thriving .....adding certain neutrals and or black dots, has set me back a couple of days......it has been an eye opening experience though.....
so conscientiously, I do vote for staying as diamond as possible, although I do look forward for the day I have accomplished what I want and can ''keep focusing on what you CAN eat'', meaning all those neutrals and black dots..... but not just yet there!!

But when you do this, you realize how many foods have gone from complete beneficials in the ER4YT to flat out avoids in the GTD!


I just don't get that!!! If our blood type is the main key (as in the Health Series and the Encyclopedia are still okay for us to use because our blood type is so key), then how can foods go from B to A? I just don't get it!!

many have done this.......there are even complete neutral lists per genotype in the GTD site, for people to choose, and build their meal plans accordingly.

Quoted from 1323
I joined way back when for a free week and then quit.  Didn't care for it.  I don't belong to any 'diet' sites.  Don't do well on them.

At this stage the GTD site is not my personal cup of tea because I'm done with 'dieting' as most define 'dieting,' i.e. following a food plan to loose weight - comparing myself to thin models frollicking around on the beach or posing somewhere... do we really ever do any of that?  At least I don't - thank God!  ...

I'm following the GTD and to me it has nothing to do with my goal of any weight loss.. but it has all to do with my extreme and long term goal of health.  


Admittedly the public pages of the site that you see before you join the site focus on weight loss. For many health conscious folks, the weight loss sales pitch id a real turn off.

But if you make it past the Waterfront Media weight loss sales pitch to the actual site content the most active part of site is the forums.

The forums are much like the ones on this site, but focused on the GenoType Diet.

The forums are really what people want to make of them. If the members want to discuss weight loss they can   (and some do--but you can ignore those threads).

Other members want to discuss health issues related to the GenoType diet and do.

Members are free to discuss GenoType science as well, but only a few members have the expertise to answer questions at great depth (But the site does include a section to submit such questions to Dr. Dadamo)

The forums on the GenoType site could benefit from having a few more folks actively participating.

I decided not to renew when I realized that the only feature I was really using was the message boards...and there were only about three of us who were doing about 60% of the talking!



I have been observing in the background here at this site and if members wouldn't mind me joining in over here I think I am going to do the same as franklina.  I did renew on the GTD site, but think I am cancelling.  Most of the people I got to know over there are over here now and much as I love it there, this site has more fullness.

I didn't like the forums because you were sort of stuck in your own GT 'type' forum. I like the fact that here, all GT's and BT's get to interact on each thread with ease.  It's all right in front of you here on one page.  No need to go jumping around.  

I already did the weight loss 'interaction thing with groups and friends and talking about it day after day, night after night and that became my life.  Counting calories, weighing every day, trying on skinny pants every week... comparing myself to countless magazine covers and airbrushed T.V. babes...exercising to excess, etc., etc.

Now healthy eating, discovering great recipes, and good interaction about health topics is my focus.  Not how much cellulite I might still have on my thighs under a microscope!

I mean it got that obsessive with  my friends and I in our younger years.  

Pooey... I'm 49 and just about to join the 'secret elders club' where people 50 and over enjoy 'life' and let go of all those silly worries.  Or at least the people I know have!

I love you guys here!  You are all great. I couldn't ask for a better support group.   And even the occasional 'Yangy' is fun... gets everybodies blood boiling!

That's been fixed. There's a "general discussion" forum now, as well as an "active discussion" forum--a shortcut to all new posts.

Well, I'll tell you..(and Dr. D also) that after getting past the detox, and the withdrawal...ok still withdrawing...but still, I feel different. Hard to explain.. I actually went to see Dr. D and I received a personalized Warrior program. My energy is starting to increase.    

It is hard to explain how deeply neat the GTD is in so many ways, isn't it?  I, too, apparently went through a deep detox, even though I'd been BTDing for years and didn't think I had much tox to de, but then again, it could simply have been allopathic illness, that DOES happen sometimes, even though we in the holistic health community always tend to think there is some deeper reason WHY the given bug(s) took hold...sometimes they just are very virulent buggies.  This winter was a devastating one in my area in terms of people getting the flu and bad colds, both of which did not seem to be your garden variety flu and colds.  They are, as Massachusetts people would say, "wicked bad" and also they don't run a normal course but sort of meander around and stick around a really, really long time.  So all of that coincided with starting the GTD for me, so hard to tell what was what at first, but now I'm really settling into the groove of the GTD and loving it.  Not that I didn't and don't still love the BTD, too.  In fact, I still do sort of a hybrid of the BTD and GTD, but basically it is the GTD...from a BTD perspective **.  You can never take the BTD outta the girl.  This girl wouldn't let ya if you tried, but that said, I'm loving how sort of RELAXED and relaxing the GTD is for someone coming from the O nonnie diet.  Boy howdy, I'm allowed WAY more grains on this bad boy.  That said--and here is an example of where my BTD education, training and experience comes in--I know I need to be mindful to focus on live foods like veggies and fruits first, and not increase my grain intake at the expense of veggies.  That is my biggest challenge on the GTD, as it is so easy to go a tad wild on grains and then you notice at day's end, "Oh, I didn't eat enough--or sometimes ANY--veggies today."  But the GTD is designed to ensure a balance of proteins, carbs and fats and if you follow it as recommended, you will find it is at once very relaxed and also somehow I find it relaxING, because I don't have to worry as much about grains, I am allowed a reasonable amount to ensure a non-rigid stance/posture in this grain-saturated society.  But it is beyond that.  There is just something profoundly relaxing to the body and mind about eating food that is in tune with your genotype.

I also am loving how AFFORDABLE the Gatherer diet is, but I will post seperately in a different thread about that because this thread topic is really about the official GenoType Diet site and I'm already off on a side road, so I'll stop here, but I did want to respond to you, just to say that I agree that the GTD is very, very "different" in ways that are "hard to explain", as you said.  From the first time I shopped for GTD groceries, I had that same sensation I had when starting ER4YT years ago:  like, YESSS, this all feels natural to me, this all feels like "coming home".  The G2 diet feels like that to me in ways that are even more laser-exact and specific to ME than ER4YT's O diet or even the later O nonnie diet did.  And I'm doubly blessed because I do find that sometimes if I am confused about a given choice about something with the GTD, I will fall back on my BTD Type O nonnie diet knowledge to guide me and it always seems to shed just the needed angle of light on the situation so that I can figure out what the right choice for me is.

I said it in another thread but I'll say it again. Best and nicest forum group on the web.  

Funkey, the genotypes are segregated on the GTD website? Warriors can't converse with Hunters?  


I think you can but you have to go to a separate board "The Warrior Board" to do it.  I never did figure out how to do it.

and so one has to go and visit each board to interact.  At least that's how I remember it.

but I probably wouldn't have responded anyway, as my philosphy is:  don't feed the trolls.


That's what I did. I was watching the whole thing..I only responded to yamen because he had the most cordial and respectful post to the low life (of course besides Dr. D!  OMG he's a saint. I don't know how he keeps it together with those creeps attacking him all these years)

The more you fight with them, it eggs them on.

There are separate areas, for discussion just as there are separate discussion areas here.  Here we have forums like: Little Fishes, Another Green World, Cook Right 4 Your Type, The GenoType Diet, and Eat Right 4 Your Type. As opposed to areas for each GenoType.

If you want to see threads with recent activity from all areas you need to select "Active Discussions" from the Shortcuts menu in the Message Boards area of the GenoType site. It works like the "List Hottest Threads" link here.        

Later as Franklina has already pointed out they added a seventh area (besides the areas for each specific genotype) for people to post threads on topics that were not specific to a genotype.

...I am sorry the GenoType site is not working out better for folks ...

Maybe the Nomads were more active than the Hunters.

It was becoming quite a chore to keep up with both forums the week I received free.  As it is, I'm spending much more time on this forum this week than I have in along time due to being so sick with Sinutitus.  sigh.

In the end, I found I preferred this thread.

yes, me too. after being on these forums and learning so much, then you go back and read and it's like "wow, I get it now". same w/ the article from Dr Lam re: adrenals. lots of reading and learning to keep our brains active.

I've noticed a lot of people saying they are following a hybrid of Blood Type and Genotype. I guess its natural to follow the diet that has made you well, then transition to the diet that will preserve your DNA for longevity. Personally my hybrid is following Explorer minus the worst type B lectins (corn, chicken, lentils...). I've found a neat feature on the TypeBase4. When you click on the Known Lectin link, you will receive a reference to an article that discusses that particular protein. Its a great way to back up the diets with specific scientific work and takes Dr. D's food decisions beyond Good and Bad.

After reviewing Live Right 4 Your Type, it would make sense to follow Genotype diet while avoiding the Tier I avoids for Blood Type. On the + side, there are Tier I Beneficials that are also Genotype Superfoods. I'll have to DOUBLE emphasize those

I'm always slow at complicated things, so am happily ditching the BTD and going totally with the GTD rather than  trying to combine them. (But I might have tried it if I had a particular health issue.) Someone told me yesterday that as something that is on the A diet does not agree with her she is not attracted to the BTD. I was quick to point out that it is not that clear cut, and that individual differences will always occur and that it is up to us to find them out.

Thanks Lola,  that link sure settles my mind about flip-flopping between the two diets.  
Now, what do I do about that darn chicken?  Neutral for explorer, avoid for B......and ever since I told hubby that I could eat chicken again (because of the Explorer diet) he'll never let me go back to avoiding it again   

***(I already know the answer.....I was just frustrated for a moment )
