Reading this thread has given me more hope to keep trying this.  There are definitely physical & mental changes when going from the btd to the gtd.  Maybe I will focus on the diamond foods first.   I need my mind power at it's best until the elections are over.  Ugh.  Or maybe a slow transition would be better.  Hmmm...... Help!

I know where you are at!    ....and I feel that the O non explorers are going through the most changes in diet.  It would be so much easier to be a hunter  

I initially developed some lower back pain around the cocyx area that has slowly (almost) gone with persevering with the GTD and cutting back on the grain consumption.     I do not find this an easy diet, but watching my father ever so slowly losing his life to a terrible form of dementia is spurning me on to keep struggling onwards ...

They are both great diets, even though the genotype is the new one the BTD definitely shouldn't loose it's appeal.  Even if the test suggests that you should be on the BTD I would still find out what genotype you are.  You are still your genotype no matter what diet you are on.

Some great info here - thanks guys!  Just want to add (and I'm very new to all this so I could be wrong)...

But when I did the genotype/bloodtype test I tested it by doing all "no" and got nothing (zero for both diets).

Then I went through one at a time, changing one item to Y and leaving all others N to see what would happen.

I did not choose all (some didn't apply to me).

The ones that came up pro-GTD were lose weight, family history of conditions, always hungry, chemical/environmental sensitivities

The ones that came up pro-BTD were food allergies, frequent headaches, skin condition, and the one about infections/immun?(sorry, can't read my notes now).

Also, I think I was reading somewhere that in some ways the GTD, while a complete and separate system from the BTD, is really getting into more detail about what you can eat?  Like, cottage cheese is an avoid for Type O.  The idea being, that generally it doesn't work well for Type O (as with most dairy).  But there was a genotype (maybe Gatherer? don't remember for sure), where it's actually a superfood, I think.  Probably because the gatherer, while type O, has other properties that enable them to handle the cottage cheese (while most other type Os can't).  That still doesn't mean it's right for everyone of that genotype, either.  

So the GTD enables further specification of the foods that are good/bad based on blood type plus many other factors which together make up your genotype.

Another analogy, and again I can't find where I read it - but somewhere on these forums, I think - comparing BT/GT (and maybe secretor status? not sure what the third was).  Anyway they referred to it as a map showing what state, city and street you live on, (or something to that effect) - with the GT being the most specific of all.

Sorry for the rambling and I hope it makes a little sense.  I am still learning much myself, but this is just what I remember coming across from reading the books and website.

Dr. D. wrote ER4YT, which taught people to eat for their blood type.  That was like a map which showed which state you live in.

He wrote LR4YT, which explained the Secretor status.  That was like a map which showed which city you live in.

He wrote The Genotype Diet, which explained a different approach to food choices.  That was like a map which showed what street you live on.

Each of these programs point you in the right direction.

Thanks, Lola!  That's exactly what I was referring to.
