I'm investigating the Blood Type Diet to see if it's right for me & wanted to know if anyone out there with health problems similar to mine have had any success.  I am AB+, but I don't know if I'm a secretor.  I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, arthritis, bursitis, & tendonitis in both hands & wrists, two deteriorating discs in my back, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  My biggest concerns are fatigue, sluggish metabolism, & allergic reactions to various inhalent agents.  I'd like to lose about 30 pounds.  Has anyone out there been successful using the AB+ diet any of the health problems I listed?  I'd like to know before I committ to doing this.  Thank you for your help.

I did a search for avatar but didn't find anything.  Any help you could give me would be great.  I see there's a test I can buy to find out about the secretor thing.  Is that the thing to w/c you're referring?

theminx,

Go to the member centre button on the top right of the page.
Under the section where it says edit profile there is a link called avatar settings.
When you get in there select your AB avatar secretor or non secretor, them click save to finish. You can then return to the forum via the main index button at the top of the page.

I'll order the secretor test ASAP. I'm so tired of the one size fits all diet mentality.  My boss & my brother both think Dr. Atkins hung the moon, but I've not done well w/ the low carb thing.  It's nice to find a program the realizes everyone's body is different & has different needs.

Hi theminx, nice to meet you!

There are several ABs on the list (the lovely Isa among them) who are wonderful examples of how well the BTD works. You might want to check through some of the older threads and read their posts. Go to the button at the top of the page called "main index", that will bring up all the forums and threads. There's plenty to choose from--you might want to sort through the Testimonials to see if there's anything there to interest you.

I hope you decide to join in with us and give the BTD a try. It's well worth it! You'll find plenty of support and advice here at the message board, and your posts would be most welcome.

Hello and welcome to the BTD boards, theminx!

I was going to put in a link to my testimonial, but it seems to have disappeared. Instead, I will tell you that I have shed about 40 pounds since I started the BTD. I could have shed even more, but I have screwed up my eating choices from time to time.

The very first year I followed the BTD I was only sick once and had lots more energy. The second year, I was never sick, still had the energy, and kept my muscle tone much easier than in years before the BTD. This is my third year and I see no reason whatsoever to stop following the BTD. My goal now is to keep correcting my inconsistencies in following it because unfortunately old habits die hard.

Hi theminx and welcome to the forums.

My health has much improved since following BTD.  I was starting to get arthritis in my fingers....it was painful to make a fist and if I knocked my hands.  Now I have no discomfort at all and my fingers are almost back to normal size....a little "lumpy" but I do not think that will go away....at least there is no pain.

Here we grow a commercial crop that when in flower gives me bad hayfever however I am finding each season that passes my allergy reduces....this last year I just had a little bit of a sniffle.  I would continue to follow BTD just for that result alone.

I have osteoporosis and now find my bone density is reforming and I have more energy.

Because I am in my fifties I expect to have to address other health issues as they arise but feel confident that I will be able, with the help of BTD, to beat anything.

Sorry....all that sounded like an advertorial....but it is truly how I feel.

Now all this is not as easy as it sounds.  It takes time and there are many adjustments that have to be made.  Eating out is a nightmare....but all you can do is the best that you can.  An avoid now and again will not wreck the grand plan but eating as many beneficials as possible and trying to avoid the avoids will go a long way to improving your health.

I do hope you decide that BTD is for you.  

Sue.

One of the nice things about the BTD is that it is safe--its just food-no funny drugs, herbs, etc. that could be harmful. The AB type is very economical, too.  You can eat grains, some dairy, & soy & those thinkgs are CHEAP & easy to get.  You can eat sandwiches, grab some bread, etc.  We Os are very expensive & time consuming in food preparation.  I'm married to an AB, so its easy to throw something together for him, whatever time he comes home.  As for me, it's almost impossibel to travel, even for a few hours & get the right food without a lot of preparation!  So, I thought you might like to know these other advantages of the diet since you are an AB!
Welcome to the wackly world of the BTD.  I think you'll find us a friendly bunch who are willing to help!!
BTD boards are  the main ones I go to when I go on line...mostly the only ones.
So I hope you will see why!

girly welcome dear... a new AB-nonnie??? another warm welcome

overweight ;   I think its the carb. problem inwhich our B-part takes the conter to get its
carb. resistancies.... so far as being a nonnie= I was just able to learn not so much carbs and as our beloved meischdda wrote.....*complex carbs* are the super-no-no's for us.... and then have a look also for "exercises" ..... not my thema but must re-learn how to proceed

Just getting the hang of posting something....How about depression, moodswings and hormonal ( Thyroid) problems. I too have 50 pounds to lose and it's overwhelming to say the least.

perhaps dear you wanna delete one of your same questions
Did ya do a medical check up for your thyroide? As lola mentioned once... it is true that
it became usual to diagnoze people with thyroide-problems to be depressive... but it isn't in reality!! I agree..........very
and I think if this is a real depression so far (seems to be AB and AB nonnie combat)
take some 5 HTP and you may feel you much better instead of such bloody ssri's which
mostly will take you into dependencies and you'll have problems while trying to quit and for sure- my dear- nobody would tell ya but they just love to prescripe Zoloft or other *fine* things.....

At first, I think the mostly benef. will be to have a güxl onto your secretor status and then as second, or better if you'll do it at the same time...check your thyroide.... and then auffiiiii pop into BTD cold turkey... let your body work on its owne- dont' force at all
and most of people of our royal race wrote that they lost more than one gram in a week!   fine- no
what I didn't realized really was that bloody question of fitness and workouts... and it seems to be really necessary... even if my lazyness calls me for noooo action at all
I booked an abonnement for one year for exercisings...

Same as what Isa-Manuela just said plus this:

Both my husband and mother notice that I am in and stay in a much better frame of mind when I get regular aerobic exercise (3-4x week). After my husband told me this plus that he had observed that I am affected emotionally by eating wrong, I started observing myself and he is correct.

If you are talking about moodswings caused by PMS the answer is still the same. The longer I was eating correctly the less the problem. While on that subject, eating extra peanuts really helped combat food cravings during PMS. The less food cravings the less time it takes to take off the extra poundage. Also, eating more of what you should be eating anyway during that TOM isn't necessarily a bad thing since the female metabolism goes up somewhat then.

Hi girly and welcome,

Firstly your not an idiot this is all a learning experience.

Not sure what 5 HPT is, feel I should know but the brain isn't quite in gear today, so I will let someone else come back to you re that one.

Discrepencies in the books occur because the great thing about BTD is it is an evolving science.  There is an errata page here on the forum, I will post a link to it in a minute - have to go find it - which will give you all the changes made.  The biggest change for AB's is that coffee was beneficial in Eat Right then the good doctor did further research and it became an avoid by the time Live Right was published.

Which is the best one?  Well I think start at the beginning with Eat Right and then progress to Live Right...if finances are a problem or you just do not want to purchase them all take a trip to the local library and have a read first then decide.

Hope that helps a little...keep asking...keep posting.....

Sue.

The ER4YT book is the best for starters. However, it does not contain
information on the secretor status which is 80% of the population. You can
have some info on secretor-non secretor issue by following the link:

http://www.dadamo.com/knowbase/subtype/subtype-kb.htm

A few food values have been updated based on new research since ER4YT, you
can check them by clicking the Typbase4 button at the top leftish of this
page.

Feel free to ask if you need further clarification.)

follow the portion and frequency guidelines as outlined in Live Right.  Also,
Peter recommends favoring Tier Two foods for weight loss.

The exercise guidelines per specific blood groups assist with weight loss,
maintaining emotional health, and lowering/stabilizing cortisol levels.
