That sounds good for a few people I know.  I wonder if it is good for any BT.

Magnolia is good for all blood types... I know Dr. D is a fan of it.

Thank you everyone for all your advice and suggestions.  I've always struggled with sleeping through the night, but I think it has been worse these past couple of weeks because of the BTD.  I think I was overwhelmed with everything surrounding the BTD and it added extra stress to my life.  I am constantly thinking about what I'm going to cook and worrying about whether my husband (Type B) will be able to eat it too.  I've also been thinking about how much our grocery bills will go up.  The worst part is trying to figure out, "can I eat this?"  Lots on my mind for sure.  Trying to follow the BTD has been stressing me out more than usual, so hopefully when I become more familiar with it and better at it then I'll feel less stressed.

Well, it happened again last night.  However, this time I woke up every hour.  I think it's because I'm coming down with something.  I've been sneezing for two weeks straight and then finally yesterday I felt like it was advancing into a cold.  Last night I definitely felt like I had a cold and I couldn't sleep a wink.  I'm going to try to take a vitamin to help me sleep tonight.  Anyone know of a vitamin I can pick up from Whole Foods that is similar to Dr. D's Cortiguard?

Taking methyl b12 last thing at night worked for me.  

It is interesting to note that two Explorers use ear plugs to get to sleep.  There is another member of the board who uses ear plugs to unwind.  All may have the same issue with a poor ability to block out sounds.  Since this is an unconscious trait the answer is a re-training of your ears.  This was the basis for the therapy for my Dyslexia.  A very Explorer issue, but not exclusively so.

Leeyah, don't forget onions and other inexpensive vegetables.  Keep the canned and boxed food to a minimum.

Leeyah87 . . . I responded to another post of yours and as you can tell from this message thread, you can get so much advice from completely different human beings that react in different ways that it can confuse the heck out of you.

Guess what I would do?  Just plan some simple meals and don't worry about the rest of this stuff.  Don't even come on the forums if all the information is stressing you out.  !  From what I've read so far, they can do more harm than good if you are a newbie and just need simple, verified information from Dr. Adamo's research.  Calcium, magnesium, holy basil, earplugs, reducing blue light, it's cortisol, it's this, it's that . . . for crying out loud. Too confusing and not necessarily what the good Doctor would recommend - I saw several recommendations for supplements not even mentioned by him.

Take it real easy and focus on like, one simple breakfast you can make for yourself and one for your hubby, and eat it until you feel like exploring another breakfast idea.  Then pick one lunch and do the same.  You don't even have to eat every meal following the diet at first!  Slow and steady wins the race.  Any diet that is causing you stress is a diet that needs to be simplified.  People on these forums have been "working this program" for YEARS in many cases.  But each of us goes at their own pace.  Don't stress - chill and go super slow and the likelihood of your sticking with it will go up exponentially.  There is plenty of time to get all super-detailed down the road.
