My first couple days were the worst, my muscles were burning, aching, weak and numb.  Over the last two weeks I've had on and off of the same symptoms but the the pain isn't so bad everytime.  So far my throat is clear and I'm thinking a lot clearer when I'm not detoxing.  How long did it take before you saw results?

The Explorer diet is something of a change from an A diet (even if A-non). My change from O to GT1 was largely inconsequential. A few have decided to stick with BTD rather than the Explorer diet due to various difficulties. You could give it some more time. It depends on how you feel.

My experience was a period of several months, but the adjustment symptoms came in stages.  I had a lot of body discomfort:  aching, stiffness, painful joints (such as a flare up of arthritis), insomnia, headaches.  These symptoms would subside and then return, less than before.  The worst was something like 3 months, but even at that, it wasn't anything I couldn't handle.  Now, 9 months into the GTD, I am amazed at my sense of well-being on all levels.

Welcome to the forums, Paul.

I never experienced any detox symptoms.  I had only wonderful things happen to me when I first started the BTD.  I didn't notice anything either way for a while when I started the GTD, then I noticed good things happening.  

So while I'm detoxing currently (taking some liver support supplements), it wasn't caused by the diet.

No muscle aches and pains for me on the Explorer diet, though this might be due to being a 47 yr old female as opposed to a 26 yr old male! Body odour was/is the biggest detox symptom I experience. It only happens on high compliancy and lasts for about a week, then it's gone. I have experienced it more than once, always following a period of lower compliancy ramped up to high compliancy.

When I first started GTD, I had a few bathroom issue that went away about after two weeks into the diet.  One thing I have noticed is with the grains...I have to stick to the recommended amounts or less.  Otherwise, I am back in the bathroom.  No more aches and pains for me.  Not even when I have cheated which hasn't been very often.  (Not sure if this is a good thing or not.)  And...as Victoria mentioned...sense of well-being is sooooooo good.

One thing I would like to mention...although I don't ache like I used to...if any amount of non-compliant sweetner is in my body...I itch like crazy and I break out in sores on my face and shoulders like I used to get big red tomatoes before BTD.  Yech.  Keeps me pretty well in line.

I never had any noticable detox stuff on either the btd or the gt3 diets.  Only noticabley good stuff.  I guess I was one of the lucky ones.

I am queen of detox symptoms...

Here's what happens when I try to eat many foods that are toxins.

I get anxious
I can't sleep
I feel depressed
My body aches all over
My muscles get stiff and rigid
My stomach gets bloated
I often get a headache

These things happen the day after I give up bad foods....the day I go back to a 100%
compliant Warrior diet, loaded with diamonds.  When I began the Warrior diet, I lived with
symptoms like this for months, but now if I cheat, it takes me only about 24 hours of a detox
and I'm back to feeling okay.

Just wanted to add to this that I consider "lower compliancy" to include non-organic foods and bad food combinations involving only GTD superfoods. There will be "stuff" to detox when recovering from these habits too.

I consider non-organic to be nearly  non-compliant too.  It'll have the benefits, but you get a boat-load of poisons on top of it.  I have a friend who is anti-BTD (and she's very overweight but won't try it because it recommends soy for her and she's anti-soy in theory...and then she calls and asks me how I lost my baby weight).  But she has a friend who follows the BTD but still feels terrible.  She said, "I told her I thought she should be eating organic too, and she thought that was insane and said she hasn't read that Dr. D'Adamo requires it."  I told her I thought he did recommend it, whenever possible.  At any rate, sounds like for some people they need to add organic as an adjective in front of every noun on the list.  Whenever possible, of course.

So here's a symptom I'm having today and I don't know if it's detox or not.  I'm very cold.  This time of year is always a little tricky for me because my body is used to 90 degrees outside and suddenly it's 70.  Now I like 70.  It's wonderful.  But my body doesn't like being inside the house when it's 70 outside.  I have on a long-sleeved shirt, jeans and fluffy socks.  My children are in summer clothes and are wondering why I'm complaining about it being cold.  Is this my thyroid having trouble adjusting to the sudden change?  The first cold snap, when it freezes, will be even worse.  I love the cooler weather, but my legs ache.

There are properties to foods...some are cooling, some are warming.  This is a great
book to explain why you might want to shift your attention to specific foods to accommodate
the change of seasons.
