P.S. morning sups of multi B, flax oil, fish oil, coq10, antioxidant, glucosamine, iron, & vit C powder with 2 large spoons of psyllium husks added!  (for ongoing constipation)!  

Maybe too much protein?

My teenager daughters typical day ( O sec- rh -)

6.30:  2 eggs fried in ghee- with different veggies: spinach, red pepper, tomatoes or maybe starchy veggies (in wintertime) parsnip or sweet potato fried again. 1 piece of fruit like grapefruit or banana
herbal tea; hibiscus based or ppermint - with honey. ( on very busy mornings maybe 1x a week: rye cereal with rice/ or almondmilk and fruit)

11.20 cold salad with broccoli, romaine- red peppers, tomatoes, carrots or peas. Cold meat like roast beef- turkey or cold fish.Olive oil/lemon dressing Water, and 1 piece of fruit - apples at the moment- but cold be grapes or water melon.

15.00 Herbal tea- sometimes green tea with honey- walnuts and dry fruit like prunes. Sometimes rice cakes with mozzerella
Sports in the afternoon:
1 hour badminton 2 x a week, 2 x long walk with me ( 45-60 minutes)- 2 hours sport in school- 2 x power yoga with me.
19.00 dinner: fish or meat with 2-3 veggies with ghee, butter og olive oil on.- always at least 1 beneficial - sometimes rice or other neutral grain- like spelt pasta- but we try to keep grain portions for weekends.
water- sometimes cranberry juice.

supplements- calcium with D3, halbut oil- in winter and fish oil in summer( she doesn´t eat enough fish), sometimes poly vitamin for O´s.

Sleep from 20.30/ 21 to 6 / 6.30- she is very fit - and hardly ever sick.

In weekends she is allowed more grains- and sugar- like homemade cake or fruit icecream.

2-4 times a year we do mc D - and she is allowed to eat whatever she likes !
- we hardly ever eats fastfood- and can´t afford to eat out much- so it is easy to make sure that her diet is OK.

Interesting thread!

Upon rising and after brushing teeth, 500ml water. That gets the bowels moving.

1 table spoon ghee + polyflora, deflect & B12

Resistance training for 45 minutes. Or, ab exercises for 45 minutes.

6oz pineapple juice with 2 teaspoons powdered flax seeds, diluted to 16 oz and drunk during the 3 reps.

60 minute outdoor running. Stretch exercises involving some yoga. Followed by bfast.

Bfast: 2 hardboiled eggs, left over green leafy veggies and other veggies+ Glucosamine

12/2-2hrs later: 1-2 cups Green tea, 1 banana, 3-4 slices guava, cherries if available, or plum + handful walnuts if available or, mixed neurtral nuts.

Lunch: 2 hard boiled eggs + Broccoli soup, mixed salad, one green leafy veg, one string bean variety veg, mixed veg dish. Bromelain,Traxicum, Promitokon, Glucosamine.

Tea: 1-2 cups green tea, 1 banana, nuts

Dinner: 2 hard boiled eggs, a dish with either pumpkin or sweet potato, +left overs from lunch (not the broccoli & salad). Dinner is not later than 7pm. Same supps as lunch.

Keeling over by 930pm...but I actually sleep around 10-1015pm and wake up at 430am.

No fluids 1 hour before bed time. Doesnt give you eye bags and puffy eyes Polyflora & Deflect with 1 tablespoon ghee.

Cooking oil: Olive oil & ghee.

Rice in some form or the other creep in once a week. Totally unavoidable.

Wow, accidental chef!  You eat eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner?  How come?  I love eggs, but I don't think I could eat them for every meal.  Your routine sounds great though.  

I always drink a glass of water right before bedtime.  So, that's not good?

I assume that accidental_chef must be vegetarian (no meat mentioned), so I guess the eggs are the substitute protein.

Tina  , whimsical is right!

And yes, water or any fluids right before bedtime isnt adviseable. I drink about 3-31/2 litres thro out the day but seldom before bedtime unless of course we are having one of those non scheduled days!

It's a beauty tip-fluids just before bed give you eye bags and puffy eyes.

And of course, Laura's point as well. Especially for women...

A healthy bladder can hold up to 16 ounces (2 cups) of urine comfortably for 2 to 5 hours.


I started having trouble sleeping all night long without having to get up and go to the bathroom before I started the BTD. However, after about a year on the BTD this problem resolved itself and I rarely ever have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night now and I frequently drink 16oz of water right before I go to bed. I drink the water before bed in hopes that it will assist in flushing toxins out of my system during the night's repair and restoration processes. Besides, I don't want to get dehydrated at night.

This would be because your adrenals are stronger and can better maintain the hormonal fluctuations during the night.  Having to go to the bathroom a TON at night is a sign of adrenal fatigue.  I only go once at night, unless my body is stressed out and then I go more often

That is not true for me. My adrenal glands are much worse now then before the BTD, because of what happened when the candida in my system was killed off and the bound up mercury was released.

Me, too!  But I usually drink about 32 oz. of H20.  I drink most of my water from 4:00 pm until midnight or so.  I put it off for as long as I can!

I really struggle, I mean really struggle, with this water thing!  I need, need, need, it, but as I've mentioned elsewhere, I hate to pee. And if I drink water in the evening, basically before going to sleep, I don't have to go as often.

What is the reason that so many seem to drink a large glass of water immediately upon getting up?  If I do that, how long should I wait for breakfast?  Also, when I drink water on an empty stomach, it makes my stomach hurt.  

Additionally, water is difficult for me to drink if it is not poured into a glass brimming over with ice.  On another thread, I was cautioned about that, but I wonder if its not more of a cultural issue?

You should drink some water in the morning because since you probably haven't had anything to drink all night your body will be slightly dehydrated. You need to replenish all the fluids you lost overnight from breathing, perspiration, and urine.

I have always read that cold drinks or foods shock the organs and therefore are not good for them or digestion. I don't know if there is any truth to that or not, but I rarely drink or eat anything cooler then room temperature anymore.

Myra, I live in an area with a well and the water has a slight 'taste' to it, although it is not harmful (we had it checked before we bought the property). Anyway, what I do (because I drink almost a gallon of water every day and am too lazy to continually refill the water purification jug) is add one peppermint tea bag to my 42 ounce container of water. After three or four refills, I will have three or four tea bags. They flavor the water just so and it is very refreshing. I sometimes use roasted dandelion tea bags, but I like the taste of the peppermint better.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Laura --  I think a lot of my problems may be Adrenal fatigue.

I read the Allergy bk, am reading the Menopause bk right now - looks like the Fatigue book will be next. I think this is the right track to get help with my miserable nights of hot flashes, sweating and bathrm trips.

Hi Purlgirl.  Do you use maca powder?  This is really helpful for these type of hormonal issues.  I take it and think that it does help me...

I take the raw maca that has no starch in it.  I get it from http://www.naturalzing.com
It's called MacaPunch.  Also, just wondering, are you 100% compliant?  Something in your diet may be affecting you as well.  Just a thought.  

Magnesium at night helps as well.  400 mg at least.

Tina Thankx for your encouragement. Not 100% compliant,  but improving.  Red meat was easy to give up but Bread/grain is hard. If I could just simply not buy it I would be fine, but my dh likes bread.  Working on my A nonnie complete food list. It's shocking to see that foods I thought were ok, arn't.
I'l read up on Maca. I plan to keep improving my diet & suppliments first and see how I feel befor considering anything that might effect hormones.

It certainly feels like it sometimes.  I am used to grazing through the day and find it hard to eat large amounts of meat in a sitting.  (Can constipation do this?)

There are times where I am searching for 'I don't know what' in my kitchen.  It is hard

You are a type O, Rh-, non-secretor. Therefore, you need more protein than any other type, except a male of the same type. Also eat protein according to your size and activity level.

If you eat enough protein at meals it will keep you fueled and satisfied between meals, then you won't feel the need to graze through the day.

You definitely need to resolve any constipation problem you may have. That is not healthy. Are you drinking enough water between meals, using soaked flaxseed, using plenty of olive oil and ghee, eating any avoids, eating too many grains? You may also need to stimulate the liver to produce more bile, which acts as a colon lubricant, by drinking dandelion tea. There are also supplements which may help like probiotics.

Thanks MoDon - I work as a massage therapist in an acupuncture clinic and have never  been overweight so rely on my food immensely.  Always have a large protein meal before work ususally eggs etc. plus smoothie, but the tiredness is usually mentally before physically - thats when I feel I need to replenish.

I guess when you've been so compliant you feel you should be rewarded by feeling on top of the world all the time  

Have been totally grain & dairy free but will replace psyllium with flax seeds.  I have flax oil each night, fish oil in morn. and have already upped the evo but maybe not enough as my skin is still really dry (has been all my life).  Maybe this is internally also!
