Quoted from Victoria
I think it's very individual, Sasha. Sometimes detox just takes the form of what seem to be temporary relapses into our old symptoms, but they get milder and less frequent.
You may find that sometimes you feel great and sometimes you feel bad again, but it's like two steps forward, one step back. You're continuing to progress along the path to wellness.


Thank you for expressing that, I think I might get a bit of that, two steps foreward, one back etc.Had  little bit of a headcahe the other day..stess I am sure.  But all in all I think I am doing ok then. I remember over the years when I start on a quest to get healthy with certain herbs etc. I get results very fast, always have been that way. I even once rid my kidney stones with pure lemon juice and some herbs...Dr.'s thought I was crazy...but it worked.
Again, great, thank you!

In regards to bingeing & cheat days- I started the diet, and allowed myself a whole binge cheat weekend, every 2-3 weekends- figured it would shock my metabolism (kind of like the ABCDE diet). Worked the first weekend. But after, my system became accustmomed to no wheat etc., and I can't binge- I get SO sick. I find the longer I'm on the diet, the harder it is to binge/cheat, because too much cheating can make me physically ill.

However, I think a "cheat day" can be great. But, what I think you should do, is pick ONE item or plate that you're not supposed to have, and have it on that day. For me, it usually means having a dessert at a restaurant (chocolate explosion dessert at BP's- cheesecake, chocolate mouse, caramel...mmmmmm....) but I'll only do it evey two weeks or so. If you make sure it's scheduled, I find it's easier, because you don't have to say "no," you can say "not now; next thursday." And it's only the one "meal" that I don't comply with- the rest of the day, I'm still compliant. And you can look forward to that cheat day, and think about what you really want to indulge in. (can also decrease guilt about eating whatever is served at family celebrations if you designated that day "cheat day"...)

Here's an update on my trials and tribulations of being on the BTD!!!!!

I'm now on Week 5 and I have now lost 13 pounds. I feel great, I'm starting to look better - I even put a pair of jeans on today that I haven't worn in almost a year because "the dryer shrunk 'em."

I saw my Naturo on Wednesday and she's very pleased with my progress. Unfortunately, I have had an acne break out which apparently is expected and I have a whole lot more gas and bloating then I'd like to admit.

So she has added some acidopholus (SP?) to my early morning regimen. That stuff is fun.

But I would rather deal with disgusting sour milk then leaky gut.....so here we go.

I have been able to live without vinegar - thanks for all your suggestions. I don't crave meat but I still miss bananas and potatoes. It's also a little hard to cook without tomatoes but I think I'm not afraid of this challenge anymore. I've gotten creative with my meals and my partner has been great in supporting and trying all the fun new stuff. Without him, I don't think I would be able to do this.

hugs and kisses to all!!!!

Well,

I started at 212 pounds and I'm now at 197. I gained a few pounds back.

This past week my dad was diagnosed with cancer so really my well being has honestly taken 2nd place. Not what I was expecting my holiday to be but I'm trying very hard to stay on top of things and at least make better choices during my bad moments.

Everyone knows food is therapy and I have been looking for comfort food a lot this week. Listening to my dad's strengths and will to fight makes me feel little more at ease. Believe me, I'm not making excuses but when you are faced with something like this, you really couldn't care less about yourself. You will to live now rests with your love one. I'm sure any of you who have been through this will understand. If you haven't, parents go home and hug your children..tell them you're proud of them. Kids, go home and call your parents..tell them you were thinking of them today. Light a candle, thank God for your blessings and NEVER ..... EVER take a moment with your loved one for granted.

Thank you everyone for your interests. I will keep you posted as progress goes on.

Happy Holidays if I don't post anytime soon.

Prayers for you and your family during this difficult time.

Is your father interested in the diet at all?  Dr. D has a book specifically for those with cancer, who would like the follow the BTD.

Hi everyone.  It's been a while since I've posted so I decided to give you a little heads up.  Since my last post, I have gotten a huge number of compliments about how great I look.  Co workers keep asking me how I'm doing it.  ENTER BTD PLUG NOW!!!!!!

My dad begins radiation on Friday.  He's a little freaked - understandably so.  Everyday for 7 weeks he will have the joy of travelling from Oakville to Princess Margaret for treatment - BY HIMSELF!!!!!!  Man that ticks me off but that's a whole other story I don't have time to write about.

My boyfriend proposed.  We have set a wedding date of November 3, 2007.  This gives my dad to get well and be there for his little girl on her wedding day, walk her down the aisle and have a dance with her.  It also gives me time to lose the rest of the weight I've been hanging on to all this time.  I am now at 188.  That's right, 24 pounds gone!!!!!  I still have about 43 more to go but at this rate, I will be there before I know it!!!!!

Thanks for reading everyone.  More to come soon!!!!

Sandra A, Great job!  Hang in there.  And I'm sorry to read about your Dad.  I agree, we A's tend to get caught up in everyone elses needs and forget ourselves sometimes.  But you have to do it for yourself when you can.  It sounds like you're doing something right losing all that weight.  Go Girl!  Welcome to your new life and congratulations!

I still miss bananas and potatoes.  It's also a little hard to cook without tomatoes



Yes, good going!

You might want to have your secretor status tested.  If you turn out to be a non-secretor, then bananas and tomatoes are Neutrals.  Can't help you with the potatoes, though.  Sorry!
