I have to say that I feel...younger since being on the GTD!  It's only been about a month and a half. I'm feeling it mentally...so soon, I hope to see some physical changes! (weight wise)

Has anyone noticed any actual mental or physical changes?

No question about it, Mayflowers, there are physical and mental changes that the diet just keeps on giving!!! Incredible and amazing!!

I feel younger, think faster, handle stress better, clothes fit better, stomach pain continues to be gone and this alleviates the urge to eat all the time too!! Many more pluses besides these.....

   I'm more alert, less of the old afternoon slumps on GTD, unless I have wheat (which is sometimes unavoidable).    Also my eczema has all but cleared up, something I've had since I was a baby.  

Just have to wean myself off that little splash of milk in my morning cup of tea, ensure I stay wheat free and add more diamond foods to my daily intake and I reckon I'll be bouncing round like tigger

Not to be gross but my Mom and I both have been having better BM's.  I think mine are more due to the AB Polyflora but I'm sure the diet is not hurting.  The only thing she changed afaik is going to the Gatherer diet from the B diet.

I have had a little more energy too.  I think mine is a combination of a couple things, Nomad diet being one.

Cool. (Not to mention the supplements Dr. D prescribed are probably doing their job)

ABNoWay, my dad was an AB+Sec. Do you have high blood pressure?

I've had problem nails for years and since doing the GTD, they are looking a lot better...stronger, shinier

Also...I have always felt I was underweight which makes sense since Hunters have a great metabolism...well mine was a little too high and I feel I wasn't absorbing nutrients well. I've gained 10 pounds (165 to 175)I'm 6ft.... since being on the GTD I feel much stronger.

I have noticed that my detox is much more constant...  While on BTD, I would have a period of really heavy detox, then a recovery period.  Now, the degree of detox is much more even, although not as heavy as the heaviest parts before...  It is much easier to deal with the same level rather than a roller coaster, although constant pain is never fun.

Other possible explanations:  
I have changed /added other nutraceutical and homeopathic products to limit damage to surrounding tissue from the pesticides / heavy metals being detoxed.

As more junk is removed, it may be easier for the body to regulate the flow, so it naturally became more constant...

Well its been just under 2 months since I visited the clinic...probably 7 weeks or so...so I think its time for an update.  My stomach has healed more in this short time than it has from any other attempt (and I've tried oh so many) over the last 7 years.  I tried cow milk yogurt and I'm very happy to report my stomach hummed afterwards.  Considering I couldn't even eat beef because it was from a cow without having excruciating stomach pains, shortness of breath, tingly/num hands and feet, and really bad "D"...this is a huge feat!!!! Up until Saturday though I was still having really really low energy, even walking felt like a process...but then sunday I decided to try steak since the yogurt did well...and I had the biggest burst of energy afterwards and ran home to work out which I haven't been able to do in months.  Thinking back to when I first attempted the BTD last August, I had started to have an increase in energy much sooner than I felt these past 7 weeks and realized I had been eating lamb almost everyday which I haven't at all these last 7 weeks.  Naturally I have a tendency to go for the carbs, whether its bread, veggies or fruit.  So for the last couple days I've been eating protein with every meal and I've been able to work out these past few days.  Next grocery trip I'm stocking up on lamb!!  So while my stomach is healing up and energy seems to be on the upswing, I'm hoping my hormones will start to sort out soon-cause yikes!!

Mayflowers; No, last three times it was checked it was 100/70 every time baby.  I'd say that's pretty good.  I do have high cholesterol though.  

ABJoe; How do you know you're detoxing? What I mean is, what symptoms help you know?  You mentioned pain.  Can you be more specific?  I think I may be going through the same thing but I'm not even sure.

Well I kind of hinted to Drea on another thread, but she didn't get it.. Mine's within a couple of days of hers. Thank you ladies!

I wasn't expecting to actually feel younger with the GTD. I was just looking for longevity and basic good health. This is very cool.

Great thread...I think that the GTD is working miracles for me...when I first started I thought that I couldn't wait until the day that I could get back my black dot foods...now I don't care of I do or not because I'm so used to the "plan" & loving it that I have no need to expand it.

Aha the penny drops at last, so that's why you ate out twice last week.        So many clues, can't believe I missed it lol

I was having a lot of food sensitivities on the O Sec diet, even to Beneficials.  Now my digestion is much better, and I can eat every Superfood I've tried.  I attribute this to eliminating all gluten containing grains.  I've also gained a few much needed pounds.

I'm finding this healing process going very slowly but consistently and the ability for me to measure
improvement is happening in "waves" ...some very good days and weeks and then another week or few days of repeated detoxing.  It's happened to me continually since January when I began the Warrior diet.  I've had everything from skin reactions (breakouts ...strange places...backs of arms, shoulders...neck).  I'm way too old for acne.  And I've also had days where my gut is perfect only to have a few  days when I unload more toxins again.  I've felt the same about aches
and pains....Many good days but often a few where I'm feeling a little worse, then suddenly much
better. So I think I'm making great progress because I'm sure my body is releasing toxins when it's ready to unload more.  I must be a bottomless pit of toxins.

I've realized that I'm most likely to have an outpouring of toxins when I eat more and more diamond foods.  One day I ate 15 of them and the next day I felt worse.  BUT, the day after that I felt much much better.  Some days I slow down my intake of diamonds to slow down potential toxin release.

The super foods are no problem for me at all.  They are the bulk of my diet every day.

It's a brilliant diet and I love it. I will stick with it for life.  I haven't reached the 6 month point
yet...but I have no doubt that I will be in a better place the longer I stay on this diet.

Very nice Chole.   I have to say that I feel the effect of avoids more intensely now, than when on the BTD by itself.  I had some vegetarian Indian the other night and it had..tomatoes as an ingredient..I felt sick the next day and I knew it was the tomatoes. I even took Deflect and I still felt sick.

Well, if those are truly symptoms of detox, which hopefully they are, just think of all the good you're doing your body.  That's how I feel about it but mine are more just the weird aches and pains.  Not so much skin stuff.  Sorry to hear that.

Hi guys, all your results sound great!

I have to admit that at the beginning of the GTD I was sceptical about if it would have any effect. Sure, wasn't I eating BTD for nearly 9 years at that stage and IT was supposed to be the end of all questions regarding what to eat!

Well it sounds from all your testimonies that I was wrong- as for me, the only way I could describe my own improvement to my mum was this:
On the BTD I felt 'freshly washed', now I feel 'whiter than white' !

(By the way, this is a slogan for washing powder in my part of the world- just in case you are wondering )
