What would you answer question like this? My friend says if my diet is that good why it is not popular? like Atkins or South Beach ...etc. Even my family doctor told me that he had heard almost all the diets but didn't hear ERYT diet.

Of course I told them You didn't hear means it is not good. A lot of people has really good results..

I want to know why we don't have more publicity or tv appearances that more people would do and try this diet?

It would be rather dangerous for the farmers....
imagine
- only very little dairy - mainly fo us B´s!
no pork....
very little wheat- corn- sugar
-What about all the big com. who are making ready meals- no additives- cheap produce starch and fillers..
Or what about doctors- medical com ? - fewer sick people!- no need for all the medicin......

AND really doctors know so little about diet- that I would never ask them about it !

Really BTD has been widely midunderstood...
here in Denmark - basically they pay only attention to what the state says about diet- and who pays for all theese surveys:
Farmingorganisations, sugar companies( danisco), dairycompanies - or the really bad ones multinatitional coorporations who make readymeals- and yucky margarine etc....

Yeah you are right! I think about that too, but like Atkins or the other diets, they have their way to advertise and many people know about them. Maybe Dr. D should go different tv programs or magazins or anything to rich more people...

I have read two of Dr. Oz book called You Owner's Manual, that was talking about how bad the transfats and all the junk foods, but still lots of people try his diet because he is at Oprah all the time. For example, Dr. D can go to Oprah or the other tv programs too..

Yeah I would be nice to see our "favourite" doc on Oprah or some other program.
I think the fact that BTD talks about individual diets- at least 4 different/8 or more- makes it difficult for people to grasp.
Last summer I went to my doc- and when we talked about my diet/lifestyle
- I said to him that just the fact that I got fatter on the official no fat diet
- and some can´t do Atkins - is a proof of BTD - and the need of an individual approach
- He actually agreed on the latter- but is still not convinced that BT is the keypoint.
He asked me about:  that he saw some A types that did really well on a high protein diet ?!
All I could say is that the might be nonnies / rh - or other subtypes....or that BTD is still not fully developed- BUT for me it is a HUGE step in the right direction !

What a wonderful idea...he once stated that he would be there, but she has never asked.   He has been on and mentioned on other shows.  They are in the media files on this site.  Check them out.

I agree with all the above mentioned that Henriette Bsec has stated.  And...since Oprah hasn't asked...that is one of the reasons we are all here to help Dr. D. help the world.   Baby steps...let's keep walking.

I had heard about BTD years ago (19 Nighty Eight) through a Infertility group but did not go on it.  Eliana's pediatrician mentioned it to me Nov 06.

Well, first of all, it is pretty popular.  I think ER4YT is still a bestseller in hardback, even ten years after its original release, so that indicates a certain level of popularity.  But beyond that and far more importantly, I would respond to your friend's question thusly:

Many things in this world that are true and/or good are not popular.  Conversely, many things in this world that are untrue and/or bad are popular.  Hitler was very popular in Germany at one time.  The idea that the world is round and not flat was very unpopular at one time.

Popularity really has nothing to do with how true, good and/or worthwhile something is.

P.S.  I've always wished that Dr. D. could get a PBS special.  That way, he could educate a mass audience about the BTD and in a time format that allows for the complexity of the theory, versus a two-minute soundbyte.  The BTD is not a reductionist diet, and similarly, it is not easily condensible (new word there) down into a very short description.  A PBS special would allow time to really get into the whole theory, from soup to nuts, so to speak.

I would phone in a pledge!

Have you ever wondered why, you don't see a large amount of products in the grocery, or even HFStores like Whole Foods, of Dr. D's products?  You see lots of Atkins labeled foods, you see lots of South Beach labeled foods, you can find Zone endorsed foods, but you don't see any Dr. D BTD labeled foods in commercial stores.

Why do you think that is?

Dr. D has talked about how he has been approached many, many times, to put his "name" (or BTD stamp so to speak) on food products.  He says there is a lot of money to be made by putting his label on something, and that lure can be very powerful.  Also understand, that getting a production up and going of specific packaged foods is a big financial undertaking, and those who are willing to finance this, want a big nice fat return on their investment.  And another reality of these type of endorsed food products is, when someone does endorse, they will often lose control over what might actually go into the products.  And what we've learned through trial and error and our own experience, is, ingredient lists are crucial to knownign if a product is okay or not for our particular blood type.

I believe this is what happened to the first BTD friendly "bars" that were developed.  The manufacturer, unbeknownst to Dr. D, started making substitutions.  Dr. D eventually pulled the bars.

Dr. D is all about integrity.  I know Dr. D blogged about this or posted about this somewheres in the past few years.  Maybe someone could find it where he talked about it.

Media wise, this has been a very busy month. Earlier this week I did another round of 'radio touring'. Ten or eleven stations this time. Went very well I think. First For Women magazine has a three page spread on the BTD this month that was very positive.

My friend doesn't say that this diet is not good or not works, just saying why not all the people know about Atkins or South B. also don't know ERYT? For example, I know Dr. Oz through Oprah show. I know Dr. D's books are all good sellers. Do we really reading every book on best seller list? People are tired about hearing this diet came that diet .. stuff because it is so many of them. They only pay attention if it is popular(people talk about a lot). I hate to say that but I live in U.S. 12 years and never heard about Dr. D and I am going to library at least three times a week and love to read about health books, still didn't hear him UNTIL I went to Turkey and one famous singer mentioned when tv show guy asked, - have you lost lots of weight lately, how did you do that? She said_ I eat accordingly my blood type... Then, I got interested in and when I came back to U.S. I have searched and found out Dr. D then... If she wouldn't say that I don't know when would I hear it...

This is such a good science and knowlegde that I want more people to know about it wheter they can do it or not. I tell all my friends about it, most of it even bought the book...

Can we do anything else to help Dr.D about more publicity?

I know Dr. D's books are all good sellers.


They are consistent best sellers.  They out sell every other diet book.  One of the reasons that Dr. D is not as well known is because of what I mentioned above.  He has not attached his name to food products sold in mainstream markets.  You see Atkins bars in every store you go in, and you are going to know what Atkins is.  Same with Zone.  Same with South Beach.  But even with all those food sales, these books have not out sold Dr. D's books.  That tells you something.  That people are more apt to  apply BT, because there is science behind the theory.

One reason it doesn't make a bigger splash is because people have no idea what their blood type is..........! So do they want to learn all about a diet that depends on a fact that they don't know...and then their family members may be eating for a different , also unknown, type....it requires a pretty big commitment on the part of the individual....
it requires a person who is really desperate, healthwise, or is intensely curious, intellectually.

I think KK is into somthing
- I feel releived that Dr D is NOT putting his name to all kinds of weird food( ?) stuff
- I won´t call the majority of Atkins products: food...
IF a diet needs all kinds of wrapped plastic it is NOT worth it !

the best publicity is by setting an example.........

people generally hop from one diet to the next, non stop.

btd is a heaven for all those who have been hopping and looking for the right lifestyle!

we need to be there for when people are ready to embrace it....


I believe BTD is not apt to be on the Oprah show........
she advocates anything commercial, and one size fit alls.......anything outside those norms is just too complicated to become a -hit-......
she even encourages pizza!!!........whole wheat....nutribars........anything full of avoids!!
I would have had my doubts, had I been introduced to BTD through Oprah s show!!!!
I m sure glad I discovered the book on my very own, and haven t been disappointed since!
It has been a decade now!!

The BTD is for people who are willing to accept accountability for their own health choices.  How many people do we know who are really at that point?  It's a big leap in emotional and mental maturity, in my opinion.
