Maria,
I am intrigued by your story, and can't help wondering if you may still be a Warrior, as the skeletal measurements sort of got confused at an early point in your development.I hope you can work this out to your satisfaction.

I am a Bexplorer as well  and I surely needs to find a a mix between GTD and BTD as well.
The only reason why I wanted to try the GTD was  that it souded like a more advanced theory and that I still wanted to loose some weight- othervise my health was super on the B secretor dit.

I really had several problems with the explorer diet
( and there is no doubt I am one even with 10 kg over weight and no liver problems)
First of all I lost a HUGE amount of former bennies - even the dairy that makes me function so well.
I found it so hard to not have eggs ( * dot food) as well as the majority of my fruit was gone.

My blodsugar crashed every single day ( like prior to BTD) when I tried to follow the menues.
and I since so many of the diamond foods are impossible for me to find her in Denmark - my diet got really very boring and not varied enough.
I donīt do well on high  polysaturated fats/oils and lots of the superfood oils where that
I had an upset tummy all the weeks ( 2-3) when I tried to avoid dairy and only have ricotta etc.
My eczema flared up and I didnīt loose much weight.

Several of my former red flags avoids was suddenly superfood or just * dot foods
- made me really chicken, corn, tomatoes are NOT my friends no matter....

So now I am  
I have gone back to the B sec diet that I loved and was so balanced for me
- I try to eat MORE of the superfoods/diamonds from the explorer list ( that is not hard)
when we speak of foods like :
Ghee, macadamia nut oil, peas, aspargus, artichokes, - spelt and rice, lettuce,  all the new berries( that are so traditional here) honey ( I am a beekeper after all ) etc and etc

I have stopped feeling guilty when I eat my perfectly good b bennies that are neutral or * dot on explorer - but I have cut down on regular milk  (and other avoids from the  Explorer list)
and I get my dairy mainly fermented
-  when I got yoghurt back again it just made me feel so good
I must be some kind of weird B explorer that needs her dairy   to function
I have noticed that the  Bīs have actually been pretty difficult when it come to changing over to GTD  ( Looong talk under the  B group) - especially us that was put in the Explorer group ... I wonder if we are just hard to please or ?

Hey HB,,,,,,,,,if BTD suits you better, so be it ya know.     It sounds like you had alot of reasons to 'return home'.  You are the only one that knows what is best for you.
I have returned home as well.  GTD just didn't suit me either. To each his own.

Henriette,
  How long did you give the GTD a try? It does take a few months for the stomach to get used to different foods.. When I change my diet it takes 2-3 months for my stomach to adjust.

My husband wouldn't do the GTD.  I tried to change his cheeses and he quit eating cheese.  He said he wanted his old ones back, so I complied.  He's skinny enough as it is, though.  Don't feel like you have to change if it doesn't work for you.

Well I tried almost 100 % for 2 months
- added a few black dots for 1 month ( yoghurt and eggs- mainly)
and then gave up simply felt too tired, sad and uncomfortable
I am so healthy 99 % of the time on the B secretor diet, where I can eat food that is easy to get= a really varied diet - is pretty easy to do in a modern world ( I think Bīs are lucky )
my only problem is being moderately overweight- and surely some of that would get of me if I exercised more- and had less wine and spelt bread

I just got too sad and freaked out over my food choises compaired to the way I love my B diet- it does not mean that I donīt use some of the knowledge from GTD:
I donīt do coffee anymore - I have cut down on black tea - I exercise more  - I have added all the sf/diamond foods that used to be neutrals.

reason enough to go back to BTD  IMHO.  there are enough things in life to be stressed about w/o adding food into the equation.    eating should be a pleasure and make us feel great........so good for you HB for listening to your body. And girl, I gotta say, you are really in tune w/ it!!

You and me both! And I am a nomad (I think)   which is not too far from the world of the B Secretor. I have adopted some of the GTD principles like increasing my mushroom intake(which I never liked much before) no cow's milk other than cream or half & half occasionally, very little goat's milk and trying the GTD cheeses (I notice more congestion with these so I need to re-evaluate). The main thing I have been trying is to stay as gluten-free as possible. But I think I need to shoot for low-gluten rather than no-gluten. I just cannot seem to keep on weight without some spelt products. And I have blood sugar probs when I stick to rice/millet as the only grain. Quinoa also affects my blood sugar negatively. But I also tested as the BTD being a better choice for me.

So I agree... I think B's do better on a varied diet than one with lots of restrictions. Maybe we are hard to please too...  


And I still say that chocolate is a super-diamond food!

I did not do well on the GTD either, my backpain flared up and got really bad.
I am back to BTD, but have added some foods which are said to be avoids on the BTD, but I have no side-effects and feel good when I eat them (e.g. buckwheat).
