[/face][face=Arial]When I feel I am not full, it is just my body telling me to drink more water.  I would eat a full meal and then remember it has been a few hours since I had enough to drink.

I have only been on BTD for a couple of months and am not bored of it, but sometimes I wish that I could just have some bread as a snack or eat most convenience or snack foods or yummy cheesy things. †I am building up a stash of quick meals (cooking extra and freezing some) and now often cook up a piece of frozen fish with soy, garlic, herbs and ginger as my alternative to pulling out a frozen meal when I'm really tired or pushed for time. †But sometimes I just wish I could have pizza! † (I'm not yet in the situation to have made my own pizza bases or baked bread.)

Like others have said, I'm eating foods that I didn't normally eat, or hadn't eaten before and finding them enjoyable. †

Luckily I don't yet react too badly to avoids (unless I eat a whole meal such as Cheese Fondue and even that reaction is managable) so I do let myself relax and just try not to have complete avoid meals!

Because its still very new to me I am a little sick of having to look at the ingredients list on almost all things I buy at the supermarket....and really not looking forward to trying to do this in another language when I move to Germany....I think it will be a very slow process to become BTD compliant there as I slowly learn the translation for English words! †And also as I get used to different brands and products.

I am becoming more aware of that initial interest people have in the diet that suddenly turns to disinterest after 30 seconds. †Even if I say 'I feel much better' and that there is scientific evidence, they still seem to look at me like I've been sucked into a scam and don't believe me!! †I want to tell other people about this great diet but am starting to get put off by the general responses!! †

Anyway, that's my winge....I really do like the BTD † †I think I am just still at the stage of having to change my shopping a little bit, and still missing creamy, cheesy food!

Thanks for the nice words to lift my spirits

Last night blew my intention of trying not to have a whole meal of avoids. †My flatmate invited me to join her, her boyfriend and his brother in a roast meal which I have often done in the past.....I couldn't think of a decent reason not to, (despite really looking forward to making stuffed roasted red peppers) so said yes and just thought I'd go easy on the potatoes. †I couldn't believe my bad luck when I found out that she hadn't cooked the usual lamb roast but instead pork....and the vegetables were potatoes, corn and broccoli....smothered in cheese sauce!! Plus there was stuffing full of bread crumbs and those British pastry things that you put gravy in.....and to top it all off, she'd kindly served us all up big plates so I couldn't even pretend I wasn't hungry and just help myself to small portions!! †  I'd been at least hoping for some pumpkin or sweet potatos!!  

Luckily I have consoled myself that prior to dinner and today I have eaten many beneficials and drunk pineapple juice and soda water!!!!

No ill effects yet except knowing that the whole meal was one big AVOID. †My flatmate does know I'm on this new diet but really only knows I'm not eating bread or milk products, and I could have made excuses or explained but I felt more comfortable eating it at this point. †It was very kind of her to invite me.

Tonight I am having the roasted red peppers full of beneficial spinach, onion, broccoli and neutral tomato and rice!!!

I'm just really glad that avoids don't affect me as severely as they do other people. (yet!)

Have a good day / night everyone! †

I'm enjoying this thread!  I'm into 7 years, now, on the BTD.  Most of the time I believe I am 100% compliant and it's not hard for me except I have to force myself to eat more protein than I have been used to in the past.

Whenever I am forced to go off the diet I never have an ill effect that I can notice, so I'm lucky.

My husband is an A and has been as faithful as I.  He has a history of heart disease and the BTD was a lifesaver for him.  He loved the BTD from the moment he started.  He, in fact, has more energy today than he did when he was in his 40s and he's now 75.  And, I'm not kidding!

The BTD has been a blessing for us.  Since our daughter and son-in-law moved in with us our dinners now are being served to all four blood types!  Can you believe that?!  I never, ever, thought that would happen.  I felt sorry for others on this message board who had to cook meals for multi-blood types and here we are doing the same.  And, guess what, it's not hard at all.

We can get all the vegetables we want at restaurants for lunch to go along with our main course but the one time I want to go astray is if we are in a restaurant at night and I see shrimp scampi on the menu.  It's a terrible temptation!!  Sometimes I give in, too.

Before I started the BTD 3 years ago, I had trouble deciding what to eat: there were too many choices. The BTD has been the answer to my dreams. Nevertheless, sometimes I get bored with eating in general. But that usually only lasts about 24 hours. When I get desperate for something new, I check out the list of neutrals & try one of those. †

Dee, to respond to your question about pigging out on avoids, I give myself Friday night when I go to the grocery to eat "junk food". For me, it's compliant, just not as wholesome as a regular dinner, things like rice cakes, chocolate, sushi.

I wish that companies in the business of selling wholesome food were more aware of the BTD & would offer a line of products. For example, Amy's makes a great frozen mac&cheese combo, one with rice pasta & dairy cheese, and another with whole wheat pasta & soy cheese. If Amy's were aware of the BTD, they might consider producing a mac&cheese with rice pasta & soy cheese.

I am not tired of it.  I do not like how i feel at all when i don't eat right.  And that is really hard being in Cajun country.  We love our rice and gravy!!  So much yummy wildlife and seafood.  I do cheat every once in a while but not too bad.  

Thank you Dr. D for sharing this awesome lifestyle!!

You can make gravy out of sweet rice flour...getting restaurants to do that is more challenging though

I should have read this post last night.

I have accepted that this new way of eating is something I am pretty sure I will do for the rest of my life. I noticed the difference in energy after a couple of weeks and I also realized that migraines were far and few between.

Last night I had my third migraine in a row but they were not 3 days in a row like I have dealt with in the past. Instead it was just the evening hours that the migraine came on.

I hope never to get tired of the BTD. It has been so helpful in helping me find foods that taste good and new ways of cooking. I love olive oil and so happy that it's okay to cook with it. So many stories about what you can and cannot do with food, etc. has driven me to the point where I hated to eat. The only thing that was good was junk food. † Needless to say, I gained many pounds over the last 8 years, which was something I could not do in my younger years. When I think back at how I ate as a child, I realized that what I liked back then was very similar to what I am being told is right for my blood type. Interesting how we don't listen to our bodies.

I am nearing the end of my 9th week on BTD and getting more involved in it ever since I found this website existed. Way cool! †

I have noticed that I have a hard time getting full, although I do not have the other problem you mentioned. I'm not sure why, but like you no matter how much i eat I usually don't feel full. It causes me to want to eat all day so i have to hold myself back.

Chris,

Are you sure you are eating enough? I don't have any problem feeling full. My hubby doesn't either and he use to consume mass quantities.

On the BTD, I am actually eating more different types of food than I was when I was not on the diet....

To be honest, sometimes I really do get tired of the diet, for one reason: the big avoids for B, chicken, corn, wheat, pork, tomatoes are very challenging to avoid, because among others these are the number one staple foods in our western society! It's especially annoying if you are invited somewhere and you get served a meal full of avoids and then you have to explain why you don't eat it. And the worst thing is, if people laugh at you, because your BT dieting. They say something like: "You really believe this c**p? Are you serious? What does blood type have to do with diet? That sounds ridiculous" or something. And all the label reading: "is corn starch in there or not etc...." gets really really old sometimes!!!

But I don't only want to complain.   I still stick with it, because the benefits of the diet by far outweigh the challenges! I feel more energized and I'm not sick as often as I used to.

And to be honest there where times where I questioned the whole concept of the diet myself, but my own instinctive dietary choices and my reactions to avoids proved to me that the blood type diet must be true and is no hocuspocus!

For example, when I was a kid and I didn't even know my blood type, I always got extremely tired after eating chicken. And if we had chicken in the family, I alwys ate the leg and not the breast, which according to D'Adamo contains most of the harmful lectins! And I never was a bread eater my whole life, and surprisesurprise! rye (which almost every bread in Austria is made of!) is an avoid for type B.

so people, never give up no matter how hard it gets! And don't let all those BTD-haters get you down! It doesn't matter what they say, because WE are on the right side, right??

peace,
rapidler

Goodnight you all*

I have to confess I never get tired of following BTD.  It's like second nature.  When I'm having a meal at someone else's home I eat everything even if I choose only a small amount.  I have no problem with that but I will admit to having an anxiety attack if the hostess serves chicken.  I think to myself, "Is this the night I'm going to have a stroke?!"    

If I can help it I never, ever eat chicken, not even soup in a restaurant in case it's made with chicken broth.  I'm a real stickler when it comes to chicken.

New Hampshire Girl, I'm the same way about chicken. I flat out refuse to eat it. I also know what you mean about soups my favorite used to be Hot and Sour soup at chinese resteraunts but some use chicken broth and all use tofu. Now at least I can't remember when I've had an antiacid. Oh yeah try living on the gulf of mexico and avoiding shrimp! At least since I'm a non I get tomatoes, even made turkey gumbo last night without pork or seafood.

Yes its worth it.

Well, gulfcoastguy, I have to admit that when I do cheat in a restaurant it is invariably shrimp.  Perhaps it is a very, very good thing I don't live where you do!!
