Where's all the B testimonials. It seems like I'm only seeing type A and O testimonials. I would love to read testimonials from other Bs.

They're out riding the steppes at the moment. When they come back, they'll offer you a bowl of yak butter tea and tell you their story, don't worry.

You Bs just have to go out and produce more Bs!!!  When you are only 5 percent of the population, you're just not going to have as much coverage!

Actually, I'm kind of surprised at how many regular B posters there are.

Just wait, they'll get here.

Hi Brenna and Welcome!!


Well, you got me there... you're right, I have never posted my own story... perhaps because it is a never-ending one. But I will consider telling of my journey thus far one day...


Would love to hear yours, btw...

Still here and reading everyday.  But there's so few of us B's, that makes more work for those of us who are out here.  I'll try and write more later.
Love,

All joking is done with much affection, of course . . . Bs and Os have a lot in common. Os do the same deal about getting to things later on, they just cover it up with multitasking. *g*

Hey....trust me, I tried to produce a B.  But between my A husband and me, we only were able to make an O!!

My story is pretty much in my blog.  As with Kristen, it's is an ongoing work in progress.


OUCH!!   My dogma was just run over by my karma!

I am a B Type who's life was dramatically improved by the Blood Type Diet. I have suffered with Hidrenitis Suppurtiva from puberty. I read the "B" information and discovered that one food in particular "chicken" was toxic to my system. Every time I eat chicken my condition flares up to the point that I am almost immobilized. Through the years I have tried cutting down on red meat and other "trends" in dieting only to find my health not improving. I finally read the "B" plan and tried eliminating things from my diet and I feel and look better than I have in a long time.
I recently joined an online supporrt group for Hidrenitis Suppurtiva. I have tried suggesting these people try their own Blood Type diet to see if it is the missing link in curing this often mis-diagnosed and often ignored condition that doctors merely prescribe antibiotics and other prescription drugs for. One thing I quoted to the group members was how my blood-type is my best defense for my immune system. I am convinced that this is what has made the condition more tolerable than it ever has been. I would love for these two communities to get together and conduct study groups of people with this condition and test the Blood-Type theory. I think it would bring great releif to alot of people in pain.

Oh, they are around here, somewhere.  They'll show up sometime when you least expect it.

So - my time in the kitchen - became much longer because I wandred out in the garden and became completely absorbed in the spring... the flowers and bees summing around.

Anyway almost 6 years ago, I picked up ERT in a bookstore- I just browsed it- but got so surprised about how much of the B - diet I reconised.
I would say that I overall was a healthy person. 27 year old single mum- a  bit overweight, a little bit of allergies but nothing real terrible. So I got the book- and was delighted but also very provoked!
I live in Denmark, where we eat a lot of dairy ( easy being B) but also a lot of rye bread, wheat, pork, chicken and tomatoes. Corn wasnīt  so much  a problem then- but it is getting worse( getting more and more massproduced food with cheap corn starch, sugar and oil in
I started taking just the worst avoids away- and sure- I did feel great - no itching feeling when I went to the toilet, no sore tummy , no running nose or earinfections- and I did loose some weight- not a lot- but I felt good.

BUT BUT it is SO easy to go back - slowly more and more wheat and tomatoes got back in my diet-  they just seemed to be everywhere- and a lot of the beneficial food is VERY much in a short season or difficult to get here, so suddenly I didnīt feel so good.
BUT I decieded to go back - this time my then 6 year old daughter was tested -she was O- and when I saw how much she improved just by making very small adjustments in her diet, I really wanted to do better.

This time I planned a head alot more. Like made sure I always had good homemade bread in the freezer. Always had rice, yoghurt, cheese, carrots and bananas at my place.
Took carrots, a bit of cheese or bananas when I went out - and made a deal with myself that I,
1 or 2 - depending on serving size could eat a small amount of the less evil? avoids.
It helped- a lot - made life easier. This time I remembered HOW bad I felt when I went back to my old diet - for SURE it felt WORSE than before BTD.

Almost 2 years ago I started reading about secretor/ non- and I decided that I wanted to get my daughter and I tested. We were both secretors- -not much of a surprise really.
I started living after LRT- and WOW things happend- I lost about 1 kg a week without trying and my energy level went UP UP- I got my daughter more involved with BTD- but she still didnīt follow the portions  frequency.
I did it almost 100 % - but I found it a little bit demanding and expensive to do it that way and slowly I got away from it again. IT didnīt mean that I started to eat a lot of avoids- NO!
- but I just seemd to get too much neutral food and too little beneficials. The portion frequencies got slowly erased.
I didnīt put on weight, but I started to feel worse, got a mental fog, tummy aches and felt SO tired.
Life in general was rather stressfull, I lost my job and my dad got very sick.. so the energy to do something about my health wasnīt really there.

This December I decided that I wanted to do something for myself and get back on the right track.
I was still unemployed and poor, my dad was terminal ill, but somehow that made it easier to make the decision.
I really started well, even though I think wintertime is the hardest time to start btd- well at least the B-diet here due to the lack of beneficial fruit and veggies.
When my dad died in January my lifestyle got a lttle bit shaken, but it didnīt fall a part.
Today when spring is here (like Kristin wrote - "asparagus heaven" ) I find it easier and easier to get more and more beneficial.
I still need to do something about the mental part of the lifestyle- I used to do yoga- but since I find it difficult to do on my own and I canīt afford going to a class- I use my garden and the forrest/nature as my meditation place.

To my joy my almost 11 year old daughter has asked if she could follow her O diet even more closer- so now when my lifestyle works, Iīll start helping her to get closer to 100 % O diet

It still takes a lot of my energy to make sure I make the right choises, but it is starting to get easier. I havnīt touched chicken or sweetcorn in more than a year - I donīt miss it.
When I eat out I try to avoid the avoids, but I still wonīt make a lot of trouble about it-  so last weekend I did eat some avocado and 1/2 a tomato- and guess what -it didnīt kill me
- I still need to read the labels very carefully and cook more than I used to. I donīt think that will ever change - and I dont mind it. My family and friends tells me that I have become a "devine mistress" in the kitchen

I canīt imagined to live another lifestyle and I wish a lot of lifes would be saved or just impoved if BTD was more recognised.

Hih, hi..

I'm here as well, and will write more story "later" , I'm just waiting for losing some pounds.

Though, I feel better and better day by day, I must say.

Very energic, almost doing three people's work at the weekends at home, feel fresh all the time.

As Kristin once adviced in her blog, love is always an ingredient in my recipies.

Good for you and your husband Betul! The world needs more Bs! *HUG*

Henriette, thanks for sharing your story. I'm glad the diet is working for both you and your daughter and that it is bringing so much joy into your life. You are indeed a 'divine mistress' of the kitchen and the message board!

Right now my story is just being put together in my head!  It needs to get put on paper and edited greatly!  I could write a tome when it comes to this wonderful way of life!  And I can ramble, which makes it worse!  

So, I will get to it in a short while!    Really  


99.8% sure I'm a Nomad.

Thank you
It is just funny how a lifestyle change like BTD- can make you far more adventurous in the kitchen, most negative reports on BTD says that your diet gets restricted and bland.... not mine

Betul- what a joy to live with all theese Bīs- we need more- I would love some small Bīs

Looking foreward to hear some other B story !!!

My daugter, who is 10 years old now, was viewing the foodlists this morning. I have a colored list of most of the foods, and this red, green and yellow material seemes to be so enjoyable for the kids. It's marvellous to get them in the subject.

She was examining what was beneficial, what was poision, and neutral. That was the point to make a goal, so I told all of them that if they stop spending money on cookies, biscuits, and other wheat/corn products when they are at school, we can much more easily afford beneficials. She seemed to get interested in the matter, and I'll go on educating them about BTD. Yes, my husband is a lovely person, and he doesn't buy chicken any more, though we consumed it too much in the past; but he is not  supportive enough about the diet yet. I'm the one who is doing the shopping, and deciding what to cook, and he never speaks out negative words for the food plan, but I'm not encouraged enough yet to change their lifestyle when they eat out. Though, I can teach my kids how to choose food. Ok, no panic. They will not die if they go on as before, but meanwhile I can teach them.

On the after-birth report of each, it was written that they were Bs, but I want to have a bloodtype test for them as soon as possible, just to make sure.

I thought that I should change my eating habbits first, and if I'm satisfied, I will completely change the food plan at home. I started doing this. No tomatoes, no chicken, no sunflower oil for a long time, but I couln't replace wheat flour bread with anything else yet(not for myself, for my children).

I should take another step to improve the household's life style, and I'm trying to find out the means of it.

Love,
Betul

I love reading success stories as I am just starting.

Here's a bit of my story...make sure you get out some tissue )
I've had fatigue and GI problems for over 10 years, been to several GI doctors to no avail.  Have also tried a couple of DO's.  About 7 weeks ago I was introduced to my blood type and have stuck to the diet about 97%.  I was told that I have adrenal gland problems, leaky gutt and candida.  The doctor put me on a dosage of Fluconizole and a bunch of supplements.  It seemed to improve my bowels at first, although everything else seemed worse.  After finishing the first treatment, I got a second one and this time I got even worse.  I started having chest pains, feeling faint and extremely tired.  So, I stopped taking the meds.  Then, things got even worse. (UNBELIEVABLE!) I was falling over myself all the time.  The dizziness and what I can only describe as hot/cold flashes increased. The DO swears it's an adrenal problem.  Nevertheless, I ended up in the ER as I could no longer function and after a series of tests, I was told that it's not an adrenal issue and that it could be an inner ear dysfunction/virus. Meanwhile I got what I can only describe as the worse cold I have ever had in my life.  So, here I sit a sad and confused B.

Hello Isacap ~

Thanks for sharing your current travails with us.

You know, I don't think about it much but the BTD lifestyle has helped greatly in resolving my inner ear problems. Some doctors I know call it the "by the way" phenomenon, as in "Oh, by the way, I no longer suffer from blah blah blah" Once the healing has taken place and the discomfort is no longer ever present, we can sometimes "forget" we ever suffered from it. That's how I feel regarding ear problems... forget they were ever an issue for me but they were. The worst was episodes of vertigo/dizziness. I think eliminating wheat was the key for me in resolving inner ear problems... as well as taking active measures to ensure healthy sinuses.
