I knew I was a Nonnie!

When I read, and laughed, through the "You know you're a Nonnie IF..."

Hypersensitivity!

Just found out 5 minutes ago.

So, I started the BTD in April, for digestive reasons.

Result: my complex neurological tic disorder has subsided nearly completely!

My mood has improved, my personality has changed for the better--stronger, more resilient, more confident. Sleep quality, less fatigue, less irritable, etc.

But, I knew there were some "pesky" avoids that I was likely ingesting, that could not be attributed to anything else: SOY milk, especially, which I love, but I've become more "suspicious" of lately--just not sitting well.

AT ANY RATE, add 1 more Nonnie to the Clubhouse. I'm a bit hit and miss on this forum thing--unless it's about me. Since, as my wife reminds me, "it's all about me!"

Congratulations!  Now you can really hone your diet to suit your individual needs.  I just found out my DH's secretor status (he's a nonnie, too, Type A), and I feel better now that I know, as I'm the cook in the house.  You know what...now that I know our BT + secretor status, our fridge and pantry are emptier than they've ever been - because I don't stockpile things that we can't eat.  And we eat everything I buy.  It feels freeing to have the food clutter gone.  Now if I can only de-clutter the rest of the house!  Congratulations again!  You are on the road to good health for the long haul.

Welcome to the club, really great to read about your excellent results on the diet. Are you using SWAMI?

I'm not yet using SWAMI. I'm taking this one MAJOR step at a time. It took an arthritis attack in order for me to take the BTD more seriously. I look back on April 6th as my "moment of clarity". I've cheated off and on with wheat and dairy, not with major food choices, but mostly with yummy desserts offered at small church gatherings.
I was encouraged by the SWAMI testimony in the latest e-newsletter. I'm not sure what my Genotype is yet. It must be one with rapid aging.
As an youth, I was the strongest, fittest, kid in the city. I excelled at any and all athletics; school; social life; you name it. I injured my back before 12th grade, and my health has suffered ever since:
3 spine surgeries--3rd one was a charm, but 18 years of chronic pain has a residual effect.
14 medications (anxiety)--but I'm finally down to only ONE! (BTD has helped that much!)
IBS: from getting OFF an stupid medicine--this is what drove me to look at my diet...
MY BIGGEST CONCERN: with the Genotype diet, is that I don't know if I could comply. The BTD has been a big enough inconvenience.
QUESTION: does SWAMI give recipes?
I'm HORRIBLE with recipes.
ALSO: I've tweaked my diet so many times, that my in-laws (with whom I'm currently living), can't keep up on all my restrictions.
Therefore, I'm gonna "nonnie" it for the next 2 months, by which time my wife and I are hoping to move out of state. THEN, I can make my commitment without driving everyone else crazy (more crazy, that is : )

Welcomed to the club, mpolyglottos!  Congrats on turning your health around! It's okay to take one step at a time.  My family and friends laugh at all my little food restrictions too!

one nice thing about swami is that you get more foods (or at least a more comprehensive food list)


There is a good in every bad

Yippee! Another nonnie!

Finding out I was a nonnie really helped me out. Sounds like you've got a great plan. I think taking a couple of months just to get used to the nonnie plan is a great idea. Best of luck to you.

QUESTION: does SWAMI give recipes?


Yes, SWAMI can generate a cookbook with recipes.


SWAMI also includes a meal planner (with better recipe integration in the soon to be released version--Just click on an entree name in the meal planner and you will see the recipe to create the entree ).

Actually, I find it easier to comply.

One issue is more foods are rated in SWAMI, so I have less guessing.

Another issue is foods that were forbidden under BTD are now okay to eat. This is because I only need to avoid foods that would bother me, rather than needing to avoid foods that would bother other people with type A blood.
