  fine story
. I am compliant in mostly of all cases but I do have my café in the morning and
I don't exercise much, yes I agree, ok...... but I didn't changed lots of my portions or intakes..so far, it is even less.... and I can't see any weightloss.... normally one might take notice that it is nornmal to loose weight if you don't eat to much; I never will have
the amounts recommended because if I do so... I'll be quicker a tonnelada whithin weeks.....that don't works with me!!!
and must be honest, all healthparameters have been checked and are more than ok
ok pré-menopsy's  I guess

Tuesday evening I ate a 100% compliant meal, and yesterday as well, I've lost 4 pounds since Tuesday morning.  

I also had my fat percentage measured by my ostheopath and in two weeks I lost 0.1 % of fat. Which is good because my fat percentage is 46.5% (oh yeah I know waaaaaaaaaaay too high). And that was even before I had my 100% compliant meal.

Anyway after being at a standstill for a while I am glad things are moving again.

oops! Sorry ISA ,

I knew I had asked you the question but could not figure where to read your answer.

"Weight loss" thread of course

I suppose It is menopause You are too young

You have the alternative of exercising more.

Now with your new wings, I mean wheels, you may loose some I am hoping your cortisol levels do not increase. Are AB's like A's with cortisol?

Sandra,
congratulations! )
there are no secrets......here s what Dr D tells us in lesson 8 of the tutorial on plateaus:
''..............lectins blocking insulin receptors on the surface of cells do not willingly let go. Patience and minimizing the use of  all avoid foods is called for during this healing period.''

well done!!

I am sorry some folk don't to hear about Os because we are very proud of our results!  I am an O who has written before.  But the update is I've lost 72 pounds as of today - in about 5 months.  I look great, feel wonderful, have no ailments anymore (had manyt o start) and enjoy the compliments I get.  Clothes are fun for the first time.  I know I have at least 30 more to go, but since this is a lifetime commitment, I trust that when I've reached my ideal weight, my body will stop losing and settle in.  This is beyond awesome.  I'm at the point where I can't imagine not wanting to be compliant.  Comfort foods?  I used to think that way about popcorn, hot bread, mashed potatoes - now I see there's no "comfort" in having ailments and being too heavy to enjoy life.  THIS is comfort!

It seems like a lot of you who have lost weight have had a lot to lose.  I am high normal, in that I am near the top of my weight range for height, but not considered overweight.  I would like to lose 15-20 lbs. ideally, but have not been able to lose anything on this diet unless I am 100% compliant.  If I use avoids, I regain any of the weight I lost.  So I haven't lost much.

Do any of you who are not clinically overweight, but want to lose weight, have this problem?

I think you answered your own question: "but have not been able to lose anything on this diet unless I am 100% compliant.  If I use avoids, I regain any of the weight I lost."

This is not a diet - it's a health plan.  Be 100% compliant and don't eat avoids.  This is a lifetime eating program - not like all the diets where you do it until you lose, then start slowly re-introducing what you weren't eating during the diet.  Avoids cause weight gain - period.  

If you look at this as a health plan and not a diet and commit to eat this way for life, you'll not only lose the weight and keep it off, but you'll get healthier and healthier and have more and more energy.  Best wishes for success . . .

Hello, I have lost 8 pounds in 4 weeks just by following the Arthritis A diet, not the  weight loss diet. I do watch quantities too, but I am rarely hungry inbetween meals anymore, so I only snack on what I need to snack on to get my nutrients, so basically no cravings. I have fallen off a bit, but I have not gained back. Been on the BTD for almost 6 weeks, I lost the 8 pounds in the first 4 and remain steady now.

Very well put and so so true. I started mine as a health plan, but the weight loss was a bonus!

Thanks Gorillita.

Avoiding the avoids is SO hard sometimes.  I actually started the BTD to gain energy, feel better, etc.  The diet has helped, but the weight loss is not working.  I guess I'll have to commit to avoiding all avoids.

If you avoid the avoids your energy levels will be even higher and you will feel even better.

There was a thread some time ago with this issue. It was mostly B's that seem to have the problem of loosing the few extra pounds. Do a little search it may still be there.

By finally getting rid of the last of the avoids - mostly the gums and carageenan - I have lost another 2 lbs after a month and a half long plateau. Total lost so far is 9 lbs. and the big bonus is that I am now "marginally overweight" instead of "overweight" and am only 11 lbs. away from falling into the upper edge of the "healthy" catagory according to the BMI. I have also upped my compliance of beneficials and am starting to naturally prefer the taste to most neutrals.

Okay as of today I have lost 57 pounds in total and approx. 40 of those in the last 2 months on BTD. I still have at times that I don't lose any weight for a week or more and then I lose 6 to 8 pounds in one week. Ah well, as long as it keeps going down. At least now I don't get disappointed when I don't lose any weight and most of the times I know the cause (an avoid   ).

My exercise regime has gone up from 5 minutes 3 months ago to 1 and a half hours today.  
Won't do that every day because I simply don't have the time, but it's nice to see so much improvement.

All I have to do now is really get the hang of being a nonnie. Lots of things that were beneficial are now neutral, and I haven't had the time yet to find out exactly what and what I should change.

Only 103 pounds to go and then I'm at the weight I want to be. I'm hoping to be there in September.

Quoted from Susana


Last summer, on holiday with my family, my sister and her husband saw me loose 12 pounds in 15 days. They saw how I had copious breakfasts, lunches and dinners. I actually ate more than them and I was not really fat to start with (143 pounds and 5'8 ) so weight loss is harder.



You must be tiny.  I'm 5'9 and currently about 143 and I'm only a size 4.

Hi Angie,

Welcome! You will certainly loose weight with this program.

Which book do you have? It is important you follow portion/frequencies and stay low on the grains and legumes.

You may also want to know your secretor status as it will help you refine your diet. Also, if you go to NAP store (home) there is a package available for weight loss.

Stick around and you will get plenty of advice.

Best wishes,

make those meals protein and veggies whenever possible, including breakfast,
forget about the carbs, legumes, grains for a bit, so you begin to see changes in how your clothes fit!)

Hi Angie and wellcome!

Protein you'll find in meat and eggs. It's also found in legumes, but meat is the primary souce for protein for us O's.
