Hi fellow B's. I have been on the blood type diet off and on for several years and have been away from the forums for a while.

I don't know my genotype, though. Still have to get the book and read up on that.

My husband is an O, 17 yr old son is a B. We also have a married daugher who is an O. I find that some of the diet is easier to practice if you are an O, given that they have a wider and more easily found range of meats and seafood that for B's in general.

However I think it is a healthy diet and one thing I am really getting serious about is eliminating as much wheat as possible. My 17 yr old son is very sensitive to wheat - would get chronic intentinal problems and our regular doctor just said it was the result of maybe taking some antibiotics, but I knew differently since it was chronic and I figured some type of food allergy may be the reason. When I finally came to this website and we stopped wheat and substitued spelt, his problems pretty much cleared up in very quick order!

I am generally healthy but do sometimes get to be a worrier about what kinds of dread diseases we can contract.  I think following the diet helps you know that you are doing all you can for good healthy life and disease prevention! But I would also like to hear from B's who had chronic problems that stopped or even found that a disease was cured or made less by following the diet.

Hi Joyce again
Well September 1st it will be 9 years since I started
- as you can see I don´t really follow GTD much- has found it horrible difficult to adjust to Explorerness
But what has BTD done to me? :
well first of all my cronic eczema on hands, arms and feet has cleared up.
It is so rare that  I see it today.
No more ear aches- used to be around 3-4 pr year.
no more  problems with diarrea and constipation- I used to switch between those.

and I have lost aprox 15-20 kg- needs to loose more( 10 kg or so) but that is fine with me.
and I am almost never sick- it is so rare that I get down with something.

Hi Henriette: Good to hear from you and glad that you have been finding good health with the blood type diet. I too have not (luckily) had any major health issues. As I said, I do not know my genotype and I figure that just following the blood type diet itself is enough of an effort.

How compliant are you? I feel that we are about 80% or so compliant on the diet. This summer, I am making a very big effort to avoid or eliminate wheat. It is hard in the American diet because so much has wheat even as an additive. We try to eat at home as much as possible and also cook using natural ingredients.

I wish I had more time for my hobbies - I love to sew and quilt, and this time of year, I love to garden.  My Dad is 88 and also a B and he has always been an avid gardener.  His Mom who I am pretty sure was also a B lived to about 93.  I am also going to try to make more time for sewing and quilting. As a B, I need those gentle pleasures in my life to keep balanced I think!

Take care.

I can relate to wishing for more creativity time Joyce

I thougth I would check in as I am just kicking a 2nd cold of this winter   After 3 years of not coming down with anything on the BTD this has been quite suprise, as a consequence I am going back to B nonnie lists and emphasis on gatherer superfoods- like you Henriette  

I found a small bottle of wildcrafted oregano oil I have been having 4 drops, twice a day and it has been excellent.
Licorice and anise tea also.
I am amazed with the oregano oil- has been a fighter!
As this is my 3rd day of cold/flu, it has eased up very nicely.
Highly recommend this oil for other B nonnies.

I'm half B...  I am still getting better, but there are many issues that are getting better with first the AB, now the Warrior diet.  I had "allergy based" chronic fatigue - bad enough to be disabling.  It was becoming impossible to work (live) around perfumes, laser printers - the toner fumes, common cleaning chemicals, etc.  I was getting pneumonia very frequently - 3 times in the year prior to finding this diet.  My digestion / filtering / elimination systems was breaking down.  

I had asked several practitioners (MD and alternative) for help, but when I got sick going into their offices and they couldn't tell me anything I didn't already know, it wasn't productive.

Finding this diet has been a lifesaver!  I've been following it for about 2 1/2 years, and while I am still clearing out years of garbage that the body wasn't healthy enough to remove, I am at least removing it.  This means that much of the pain still exists as the junk is removed and body heals, but it is healing.  The more healing that completes, the faster the process goes, so my outlook keeps getting brighter because as the supplementation changes due to organs no longer needing help, I can tell that they are healthy and we move on to others that need it.

I am at a constant detox stage now where we are supporting the filters and using some detox protocol.  I don't know how long this will take, but am generally exstatic with the progress to date.

Joyce I think that is very true.
the last 5 months I have been working too much and I have had almost no time for my garden, sewing ( yes I love that as well etc.
Just managed to read a few books and spend time on the internet  
- so now I have asked for a change in my work load- cause it just doesn´work for me- gets irritated and frustrated.
My granny another B  died at 94 and she just loved working it the garden and knitting and cooking- I remember her when her back was completely wrecked still fooling around in her huge garden with a hoe as a stick   she basically died when she was put in old peoples home at 93 - where she couldn´t do a thing except watch telly and cook

Well I would say I am more than 95 % complient on the B diet
( I do eat about 1 oz organic bacon or ham pr week- might eat a tiny tomato or avocado)  that is about it)
I eat pretty pure real food so I don´t get any weird fillers and additives
And I bake all my bread, cookies etc so it is wheat free and even worse vegetable oil free.

- some former B avoids do pop in after they have become super/diamond foods on Explorer diet- like artichokes and lentils
And I can eat them without any side effects.( so maybe I am just a weak secretor ?)

So I would say I still eat my B diet and do no worry about some foods beeing degraded on the Explorer diet( like eggs, dairy and some fruits)  but I have changed so I eat more of some former neutrals that has become superfoods
- like peas, lettuce, apples etc.

Since I still want to loose weight - I am going slow on the B grains
- I do eat spelt, quinoa, rice, millet and oats - but mainly in the weekends and I try to eat max 1 serving.
I would say at the moment I eat a fairly high fat  ( olive oil/ghee/cheese/dairy, chocolate) diet with lots of veggies, some fruits (2 -3 pr day) and 1-2 medium servings of fish or meat( mainly neutral) pr day and it is working for me
- In the weekend I eat more basic B diet( with wine - a little sugar, maybe juice and grains)- that way I can control my cravings for cakes e c and I loose weight  

I tried the genotype - but I must be some weird "rebel" b type explorer
- cause I did not feel better- just worse   and it was so restricted for me
- since it was VERY different from a B secretor diet.
I decided it was not worth it- but I am sure that others can benefit from it...
and yes I am an explorer- no doubt about that...

well I need to work this afternoon - so I better stop- going into the garden and enjoy some B time

colojd, here is my story.

The Bad News
I have always been a bit emotionally thin-skinned, but as a teen it started becoming depression.  I was officially diagnosed with depression at age 21.  I tried Paxil, Remeron, some mood stabilizer whose name I don't recall (usually for bipolar disorder), Wellbutrin, Prozac, and finally a combination of Wellbutrin and Prozac.  None of them helped, as far as I can tell.  It's tricky to know, because I cycled up and down through depressive episodes.

I excelled in school, without really trying, but in my 20s I found it was get hard to stay focused (i.e. brain fog).  I was diagnosed then with ADD, even though I was never hyperactive (quite the contrary, actually).  I tried Ritalin, which upset my stomach badly, and Dexadrine, which helped at first, but then only allowed me to push myself harder than I should, thereby depleting my already-scarce energy reserves.  When I quit taking it the last time, I slept 10-12 hours per night, plus 2-4 hour nap in the daytime, for about 3 weeks, while recovering from that effect.

Like I implied above, fatigue was a big problem.  I think the fatigue was the biggest reason for the depression--I was depressed because I was always so tired.  This would cycle, too, with my "depression".  I'd have bouts of it where it was serious exertion just to remain standing for 10 minutes.

Tied in with the depression and fatigue is the sleep.  When I'd sleep, I would have trouble getting to sleep, but once asleep, I'd sleep soundly.  But it was a rare morning for me to wake up feeling rested!

Since my childhood, my blood sugar has been flaky.  If I didn't eat frequently I'd get headaches, moody, shaky, and even light-headed.  I had headaches a lot, usually related to blood sugar but not always.

I have arthritis in my neck and in my lower back.  One of my lumbar vertebrae is malformed and gets out of place very easily, and has been grinding down the disk below it until it's very thin.  By the time I was in my late 20s, I needed regular adjustments to keep the pain manageable, and to keep being able to move around (or walk, in one instance).

The Good News
About two weeks after starting BTD, I noticed that I'd been waking up feeling like I'd actually slept!  I began feeling more energy, and more motivation and hope.  I found I was able to think more clearly, and to stay on-task longer (this is very important for the boring, redundant job I'm doing right now )  I started losing extra body fat/water retention (about 35 lbs. total over the last year), and a few months in, I even noticed that my athlete's foot had cleared up.  I'd had it for years, and it was in my toenail, too.

I've noticed that I haven't had a single episode with my hypoglycemia since starting BTD--even while fasting!  Strong chemical smells, bright lights, loud noises, big crowds, and obnoxious people don't get to me nearly as much now as before--my "skin" is thicker for both emotional and physical irritants.  I can even drive my car on a bright sunny day without sunglasses now, without it giving me a headache from the eye strain.

I actually stopped all my meds before I found out about the BTD, because it was finally obvious to me that they weren't helping, and I was worried that I might be suffering from the side effects (including the empty wallet effect they cause ).  I've had some ups and downs even since I've been on the BTD, but I've been much more able to deal with them.  In a way, those downs have motivated me to press forward in search of more things I could do to improve my health.

Another unexpected benefit I've enjoyed is an amazing decrease in my back and neck pain.  The anti-inflammatory nature of the BTD has reduced the frequency of my chiropractor visits (also saving me time and money) while increasing the effectiveness of those adjustments.  I rarely have headaches anymore, either.  It's a rare occasion for me to need any pain medicine, and I used to use them a few times per week at least.

In the year since I started BTD, I have gone from sickly, weak, unemployed, and unable to hold to a job, to a normally functioning adult.  I still feel my limitations, and I still have to be very careful about balancing myself, but I also see the ongoing improvement and healing I am enjoying.  BTD was the start of a series of lifestyle changes I've made to get better, and by far the most important one.  Without BTD (and now GTD) as a foundation for my health, the other steps I've taken would have only slowed down the steady decline my health was experiencing.

My seasonal allergies have diminished noticeably.  I used to have to take Benadryl every day during the bad seasons.  Now I get a little bit stuffy, but that’s all.  I only resort to the Benadryl when I am overwhelmed with certain flowers or perfumes.  


As for compliance, I’m like Henriette, if a food was good for me on the B diet but downgraded on the Explorer diet and I feel no ill effects from it, then I’ll eat it.


About 2 weeks ago I started trying to lose 15 lbs I gained because I couldn’t exercise for awhile from a knee injury.  I’m attempting to cut back on my grains, which is a weakness for me.

Yeah, I also took prescription meds for allergies, pretty much all year round.  I used prescription nasal spray for chronic sinusitis.  They didn't help a lot, but BTD did.

drive 55 I am sure that all those psychomeds were  just for nada...it was merely negative in not being able to work with you very toughy N-side which is mostly the ++++ for you...all the B's   we mustn't get adjusted by society with such medication only coz we are done in a different way .....
but then we have to learn to protect ourselves for not being that permeable to other's energies..... isn't that called *
delimitation* ... ......
BTD food helped me here tremendiously.....to stay safely with it

btw....the insight of needing more l'arginine as well

Hi Lola, Henriette, Victoria and Gulfcoastguy  

To Victoria - I haven't read all of the posts but a lot of them and from what I see B's seem to share a quirkiness and in some ways appear quite wayward and tread their own paths slowly in their own time with determination (thats me  )  I don't like to be rushed!  Also I'm extremely curious and like to know the ins and outs of everything, sometimes to obsession.

I'm relatively new to this diet and this forum and looking forward to learning more and seeing results.  Just out of interest, how long after starting the diet did you all notice a substantial change in how you felt and before you experience optimal results?

For me, I immediately felt more chilled out and even a bit floaty in the first couple of days/weeks.  I think that is my body adjusting to the radical  change in diet, I went all out and eliminated just about most avoids (probably too much at once and decided to slow it down a bit as I felt strange (not enough carbs probably).  I just kind of felt all light and not quite with it as if everything slowed right down.  I don't know why but I feel like I could cut all grains out and instinctively think I would do better without them but know that it wouldnt be healthy to eat just veg carbs and protein.

Aha, so THIS is where the Bs are all hanging out!    
I've been looking EVERYWHERE for you people! We're so outnumbered here.  

I have been reading the book and following the program pretty well for the last few weeks.  The only meat I ever ate previously was chicken (thought I was making a good choice) and that is gone now.  I tried vegetarian for about 6 months for my cholesterol, but my last check-up showed no improvement at all (in fact, it went up a few points!)  It looks like I will be eating more red meat on this - beef and lamb (never had lamb before in my life - should be interesting - guess I'll throw it in the crockpot with some veggies) and turkey.  (Some of the other beneficial "B" meats seem a little bizarre to me -- uh, turtle?.)

I do have some concern regarding my cholesterol though.  It's 237, and my doctor tells me it should be under 200 (and of course is pushing me to go on statins, which I am fighting).  I do remember reading in the BT book that "normal" cholesterol is 200-220, which is higher than what the doctors tell you (but of course, they just want to prescribe meds    so I am feeling a lot better about my number - especially since the rest of my lipid panel is excellent.

Anyway, I am enjoying reading this forum, and learning a lot!

By eliminating the lectins and following portion size and frequency, your body should balance the lipid numbers to a good number for you.  

I realize 237 may be a bit high, but it doesn't mean much without knowing the ratio of LDL/HDL.  This is really where you tell whether there is a problem.

I have a simple, great tasting, fairly inexpensive way to cook lamb.  I usually buy shoulder chops.  The secret with lamb is buying cuts as fresh as possible.  Don't buy near the expiration date.  

Sprinkle salt, curry powder and fresh rosemary from my garden on both sides.  
Saute at a fairly high heat for a few minutes on each side.

It is best pretty pink inside, IMO.  Well done lamb is tougher and not as tasty.

The "B & Individuality" thread was so long, it was split into two (parts I and II) after a matter of months.

Thread I (9 pages) ran from 3/5/05 to 10/20/05 and can be accessed here:
http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-gold/m-1110066247/

Thread II (25 pages and counting) ran from 10/24/05 to the present (still going strong) and can be accessed here:
