yuppers converting isn't the real or better said right word... because everybody on this board with success seems to have got any kind of need for changements before...that means btw. that it is everytime  un accord with this and if you dont feel anything before...sofar no changements might happen because you think all might be ok about your foodintake..... b u t...... wait until the *littleones get caught ya* called lectininteractions with bloodtype very yum-yum  

and me,I learnt my lesson- never give my books away...did this before- nobody seems to have the need to give em back to me....*all mine...- all mine* is the devisa grrrrrrrrrrrrrr
today I give only the bookadvices-ISBN-no's and thats all and of course www.dadamo com
but thats' really all .... ahem I try this now out

Great blog.   I think I'm making people at work think about what they are eating.  I talk about it all the time.  At 1st people teased me about not eating chicken, but now I think some of them are paying attention.  One guy said he was going to ask his doctor what his blood type was because I suspect he is a "B".   Another guy told me his mother told him he was an O, but when he gave blood they told him he was A-.  I wonder how many other people really don't know their true blood type.

This is really hard.

I have learned to look at people and see the glob under their chin and know that's bad.. probably a wheat eater.

I learned before BTD to check out what folks are putting in their shopping carts.  If it don't belong in a cook book, it don't belong in my food.

I've also learned that people are passionate about their wheat

We "Pray" for our daily bread

We sing about grain

We celebrate with cake... ie wheat

It's hard!

I'm good with no wheat.  I good with no dairy

I'm good with no beef or pork.

I have converted a few... how many, I don't know.....  

I made many mistakes in the beginning.

When I heard about this it was the day after a silent heart attack.  I should change my nick to foodpolice


It is what it is so I'm dealing with it.

I am working on it. I am getting a lot of compliments about my appearence and better health and have shared what I am doing.  I have actually printed out Food List for their Blood Type so they could look it over and explained that I eased into it by eliminating one or two avoids a week.  It's been about five weeks, and I'm getting feed back from three of them and this week I have a new bonus health result to share with them and with You I AM TOTALLY OFF OXYGEN DURING THE DAY!
was on it for 5 years 3 months and 26 days,24/7.  I found out yesterday afternoon and I am feeling a high higher than any high I ever felt years ago....lol.   I want to run, jump and fly around, but instead the most I can do is smile and share the good news.

Congrats to you geminisue, wow that must really be a great "visual" for your friends and relatives to see you without your tubes and such!

I have gotten a few people to just eliminate one or two avoids to see what it felt like for them. I think people convert themselves when the conditions are right and the information is with a friend or on their bookshelf. I know that when I got desparate I reached for er4yt that had been on my shelf for 5 years.

Wish me Luck!  My mom NEEDS this diet so so so bad.  To keep it brief:  skin cancer + radiation + infections + skin ulcers.  She is coming out to visit me this weekend and I am going to try to sneak it in somewhere.  I purchased Dr. D's cancer book for her.  And as if that's not enough.....my oldest sister is being treated for asthma from bronchitis!  

As stated earlier.....people are more likely to listen when they are ill.  Cross your fingers!

Illness notwithstanding, slyp., remember to pause (see my recent blog The Art of the Pauseby Santé-j). Even when people are at death's door, the BTD can sound "out there" "wacko", etc .  Don't SELL it...

Quoted from igbogirl
You're so right when you say that many ppl wait until they are sick before they try changing their lifestyle.  I also get acupuncture treatments and have had similar reactions (people saying, "what are you getting acupuncture FOR?  You seem healthy")


 Ok I can't tell you how many times people have said something like this to me and i just look at them like they are nuts. "Why do you have to go to the gym. You're already skinny."

Um... How the heck do you think I stay that way dummy?!  

Anyway... I haven't converted anyone other than my husband - and he's not so much converted as happy to eat whatever I put in front of him.  

When I worked at Trader Joe's I talked about it with a few people. Had a B and an O who shopped regularly and we talked about it a lot.

I talk about it at work some but typically in response to what people say about what I eat, rather than initiating a conversation on the subject myself.  I do suggest to people who have nasal problems that they give up wheat & dairy (and explain my dramatic success). Most of the time they look at me in horror and walk away shaking their heads.

Hey, great -- you're an A!  Have I got some questions for you!

I'm assuming that you no longer eat any wheat whatsoever.  But do you eat spelt or kamut?  What grains do you eat?

No dairy at all?

Any idea what your secretor status is?

Thanks!  I'm just trying to figure out what to try next -- assuming that my current experiment doesn't fix everything!

Quoted from Carol_the_Dabbler

Hey, great -- you're an A!  Have I got some questions for you!


Hi Carol!  Please note I'm not 100% compliant, and in particular I'm not quite compliant on the frequency of foods. I'm working on that (frequency).  I spent 2 hours Sunday making menus for just my husband and I. Sheesh!

I'm assuming that you no longer eat any wheat whatsoever.  But do you eat spelt or kamut?  What grains do you eat?

Actually, I do eat sprouted wheat bread (something like Ezekiel, though it's a Trader Joe's version called California Complete Protein Bread).  Infrequently actually lately, since I have baked my own bread the past few weekends. But I'd say I have some form of bread (bread/toast/muffin) every day.

I eat spelt in multiple ways. I use spelt flour (white and whole grain) for baking. I also use buckwheat, though it has a strong flavor so I usually mix it with spelt. I also eat whole spelt berries - made like rice in chicken broth and water. I have this with black beans. I'm going to try making kasha like that this weekend and see how it goes, since it's a bennie for me.

I eat oatmeal a few times a week, and use quick oats in a couple of recipes.  I eat brown rice and brown rice cakes - one or the other every day.

Hmm what else? Well these are cereals more than grains (though I get confused on wher to draw the line since some are both places)... I eat Cream of Buckwheat (organic... can't think of maker but it's in a small yellow box at the HFS), Buckwheat Flakes (by Arrowhead Mills)...

Sometimes I make rice pudding (the recipe in Cook Right for Your Type). It's sooo yummy I don't make it too often because I will just eat it 5 times a day and nothing else if I'm not careful!

(I use soy milk for the cereals and rice pudding. For oatmeal and Cream of BW I use half soy milk and half water.)

No dairy at all?

I eat yogurt (cow's milk) about 3 times per week, and then yogurt cheese 2 to 3 times per week (sometimes - it varies as to what I'm in the mood to eat).  Trader Joe's has a yogurt cheese that is yummy - it tastes similar to Monterey Jack and melts very nicely, oh and all their milk products are rBST free.

Any idea what your secretor status is?

Not really. Hoping for nonnie so I can have tomatoes, but from the discussion I've heard here by nonnies, I'm not certain that's the case. I ordered tests last week for DH & I so I'll know in probably... a month? Or so

I would never attempt to convert anyone to anything on purpose. My husband is getting more and more interested in the BTD because he sees what it does for me. We are both Type O and were both vegetarians. We both tried everything to imporve out health including raw veganism never realizing that it was the vegetarianism/veganism that caused the problems.

He has started eating meat and fish again and has stopped eating wheat and dairy except for his beloved flat bread and a little goat feta. He admits he feels much better but he still loves pickles and peanut M&Ms (not together) and our traditional flat bread (which Americans call pita bread) but he has cut down on it. He has completely stopped drinking. He lost weight and his allergies improved so he is convinced there is something to it. He encourages me and keeps me on track.

do not insist! )
let those in need come to you.
set the example, that is all you can do.


Very good advice. I've studied so much nutritional info and because it excites me I talk about it alot. I do try not to harp, but sometimes I need to speak. Someone told me the other day that I should be a Naturopath! Maybe she was right! I get a little tired of not being listened to and bite my tongue and in the end , if they are interested they come and ask me. I have converted my sister to a degree because of her son (wheat and dairy!). My good friend converted and lost 50 lbs. My mom flirts with it. So I am making progress! Even my hubby realizes I'm on to something good! He fights me over it on principle! Something he loves to hate!

I think I have pretty much given up, on trying to convert anyone at the office or anywhere else. they consistantly complain they want to loose weight, or quit smoking. and the next min are pounding down cheese burgers and fries, getting tasty cakes and candy bars and diet sodas from the vending machine, smoking that cig. in a no smoking area. And I pretty much get sick watching them do nothing to change.

It is obvious they have no intention of making a change and only like to complain , many also suffer serious health conditions.  

One guy actualy said I want to wait a few years till the kids grow and I can focus more on myself.  I told him if you wait you may not even be around to finish watching them grow. I was harsh I know but, sometimes a kick in the A** gains more attention. (he suffers from sleep apnea, has a large gut over his size 36 pants"which he thinks is ok cause he still fits in them". and smokes like a feind).

on the home front I have a sister that is 20 years younger to me and at 15 (wont tell me actual) I am guessing she weighs in at about 290 and i feel that is concervative.  I have spoken to my mother and her and talked till I was blue in the face.  I am told I am teasing her and only making her feel bad but trying to sujest ways to start a healthier way of life.  so that too has been a disaster, I can only hope that my continued efforts to loose that last 30lbs and then maintain will be inspiration enough.  

God bless all who at least make an effort and experiment to find what works for them no matter what it is !!!!!!!!

I was only converted coz I'd experienced the benefits twice before I heard of BTD.
I went back on it "for good" when I was so sick for so long recently and had begun to feel suicidal again. I told BF "that's it! I'm done! I'm taking my health back!" He and my family have seen my health slip for many years, particularly since the Trade Center bombing in Feb. 1993.  I hadn't been well enuff to work outside the home steadily, but when I felt too poorly to even make my jewelry, with people waiting for more, well, that just tore it. I had finally reached a wall, and WAS READY.  You have to be READY sometimes.
Anyway, I have tried to catch BF up on basics so he'd understand what I was doing, reading to him from the books & website....Well!! Get a load of what came next!!!!!
I told him I was the one who was going to be most compliant for immediate health reasons and tight budget, and he would be helping eat up the leftover avoids in the house. Guess what, now he says am I trying to poison him when I do! I guess the avoids are going to somebody else's house after all!!!
I converted him inspite of myself. I guess all my speeches about what could be improved in his own health worked better that I'd thought.
Go figure!!! Oh, well, I'll take a win where I can get it!
