I read this book last December and only excercised once in a while as I have a muscle disease that can be painful. Since January 05' to now I have lost 95 pds and 6 pant sizes!!! Yes! I am a
totally different looking person! I have not been this weight since I was 26 years old. I am 51 now and I am now picking out new clothes in the junior section of the store. All the food I am eating...is everything I have always enjoyed. All the things that the book say are to be avoided don't make me feel good when I eat them anyway. So it works perfectly. I went alittle further. I cut out Wheat, and added more Soy products. I am an A Type. Anyway THANK YOU!!! What is the "NEW BOOK OUT NOW???" Someone just told me there is a new one out in the past 5 months????[face=Verdana][/face][color=green][/color]

Hi Mystic and welcome to the forums.  What an achievement in so short a time.

If you go to your member center you can select your avatar, that way everyone can see your blood type, whilst there you can add any personal messages to your posts.

If you visit the Blood Type Store, top right hand side of the page, you will find many goodies and supps available for each blood type.  There is also a "book section" so you can check out all the latest publications.  I'll put a link for you:

Hope you enjoy the forums.

Hi Mystic,

   How encouraging for me to see how you did with out exercise, I have been on a plateau for about six weeks now, they tell me that the exercise might be making me gain muscile which is heavier the fat so that is what I am hoping for. I need to lose more then you have so feel better hearing that it can be done on this diet.
   Thanks for sharing

O.K., I'll admit it, I'm in shock    Awesome job!!  

You haven't shed just pounds, you've lost a person!

Mystic, have you found that by being on ER4YT, that it has lessened the affects of the muscle disease on you, both in frequency and severity?

Hi Everyone!!! Oh my Goodness! How Sweet you all are! You all will do the same as I did to! It takes some time and some thinking out to. And you really have to follow your type pretty closely and cut your portions down some. I can't eat like I use to anymore at all. I now eat about 4-6 small tiny meals a day. I just do not require that much food or want it anymore. With "A" I have always hated meat anyway so going semi-veggie was perfect for me! Some chicken and Salmon, "No" Wheat, Milk, Meat, Pork, Nitrates, Alcohol, Wine, Tomatoes, Green, Yellow, or Red Peppers, and there is a lot of other things. But those are some of the highlights. I replaced them with: Vanilla Silk Soy for Milk, Cascadian Oak Cearal, Nature Valley Granola Bars, "No Wheat",
Rice Crackers, Melba Crackers, Cream Cheese, salads, fresh fruit, fresh fruit smoothies. These are just some of the things I eat there are many more. When I cook for my hubby at dinner. I just cook the same as I would for myself. He has a tummy and does not eat well away from home anyway so one meal a day that is healthy won't hurt him I figure and he always says it tastes good. My Cholestrol has come down from the 600's to the low 200's. My blood suger was in trouble before I started this diet, not anymore, it is back at a normal level again. As far as my muscle disease goes... nothing will help that unfortunately but, it did help in one area. By removing that half of a person I was dragging around it helped relieve some of the pain a bit.   I am very very grateful to be here today able to tell you my story hoping I can help anyone that has any questions at all. Just give me a shout
My heaviest last yr was actually last November I topped out at 235 Halloween. I looked just like W/Judd. I read the 4 your Type during Dec and started the "Change of Life Diet" in Jan 1st
of 2005 and I weighted in at 140 on November 7, 2005.
Exercise: I work in my yard tending my gardens. I have a lot of Rose gardens. I try to ride my mountain bike on our cement trails when I can, I belong to a 24 hour Fitness Center and I have a Gym at home. Mind you I do the best I can when I am not in pain. Understand... I am in pain 24/7 I have to take heavy pain meds just function each day. I push myself very hard. I hope that helps, if not and you guys have a special question you want to ask please don't be shy. I want to help, I only wish I had known about this place back when I was going thru the tough part so I could talk to someone! Bye for now and Hang in there![/face][face=Arial][center][/center][color=red][/color]

Keep it up, girl!!  I bet that in a few months to a few years, the pain situation will get better & the disease you have will slowly go away, maybe not entirely, but enough to function well.  WOW!! What a story. I wish I could convince more  friends to just try the BTD for a few months!!  God bless you & yours!

Dearest Ee Dan,

Sea Salt & Light...humm...interesting...blessed be to you to! Thank you for your Replies and to lighten things up a bit here we go!

A Moon Vow for the Loss of Weight!

When the Moon shows cold and slender,
Stand beneath her starved light,
Wearing only white and silver-
Say, to whet her appetite,

I make my vow to fast until
This crescent Moon shines round and full;
While she waxes let me wane:
I must lose, that she may gain

While she grows, take silver wine,
Silver water, silver milk,
And bread like snow or linen fine,
And fish as clear as ice or silk-
But only these, and less of all
Than you would wish, to feed her well,
So mote it be and bright blessings to all.

A little late Halloween fun for the diet. You never know it might help?!? .
Hey Guy's you have to keep things light and airy and have some fun to!
Just consider this a Mystic fly by------>

It's funny Mystic, I've actually gained a little weight after starting BTD.

I lost 47 lbs on Atkins and switched to BTD right after I reached my goal weight (Atkins and O-diet isn't that different really - apart from the dairy and pork, of course) and I've gained 8 lbs. I know I've upped my carbs - I eat oatmeal in the morning, sometimes rye or spelt bread at lunch and some fruit now and then - but overall I've not changed that much.

In the beginning I was annoyed and planned on going low carb again, but now I'm not sure. You know, I actually like my body better at this weight (I like having my boobs back...! ). Overall I feel great, and that's what matters most for me.

boy this board is sooooooooo Corn Confusing to me!!!!! Grrrrr! Okay your name is Poly???? Right? So I called you by the wrong name, sorry . And what does the (Poly, Tag, you're it!) mean? Okay done with those questions.
Now...they other ones ,
I tried Adkins twice and got very sick on it both times by the second week. The BTD was easy for me, I guess I am a natural vegetarian and didn't know it. I hate meat...lol. I like chicken and some fish but not all the time. I use to be a carb addict. I could sit and eat a coffee cake in one sitting and start on a box of cookies next, but now I never even think about that stuff. If I get a sweet tooth I grab a granola bar with no wheat.
It depends on if your body weight is at a healthy level for you. Your heart, your height, you know all that good stuff, lol. We all want boobs...me too! !  
Have you gotten rid of the fat that you wanted to get rid of around you? That is what I was going for. I had 3 rolls around my gut!!! Now I have a completely flat tummy. I still can't believe it! I told my hubby last year as I was crying " At 50 yrs old there was NO Way I will ever get this weight off at my age and get a flat stomach again". Guess I ate my words. I do not think I will use that word "NEVER" again....
Do you replace the dairy with Soy Milk? Like Silk Milk? The Vanilla is fantastic! And it is so good for you. Are you over weight at all? Or close to your goal now? I puzzled how your not losing weight and really shocked that you have gained 8 pds??

Well...Mystic is saying Good-Bye for now while scratching her head in disbelieve!
Nice talking to you Poly!
Bright Blessing to you.

Silk soymilk has carrageenan in it which is a troublesome avoid for all blood types.
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?486

Carrageenan is in many brands and varieties of soymilk so you have to search for the few that don't have it.

Some of the following, and maybe others, are avoid free:
Westsoy
Soy Dreams
Edensoy

Hi Poly,
  If you are comfortable with how you are I wouldn't worry about a thing,
  I am losing weight and my doctor keeps pushing me to have weight lose surgery even though the surgeon says I should not because of a liver problem. I don't undrestand her at all, when I wasn't losing weight she said nothing and now she wants me to have the surgery really bad for some reason.
  I would like to lose faster but I am feeling better and able to do more then I have for a long time so I am just going to go with the flow.
   GOD Bless you.

I know there is a lot to this Diet, much...much more than I got into it. I am only stating what worked for me. As I said I lost 95 pds in less than a year. But, I really did it hard core. I cut down on everything, I really mean everything. I turned into a rabbit. I followed what they said I could eat in the book. I didn't go any further than the book, cookbook. I didn't go into the secretor stuff as I was dropping weight right and left. I had 40 pds off in 3 months. Soy milk helps me very much as I am in menopause to. And I don't drink a lot of dairy anyway as I don't care for it much. I know I read in his book somewhere that "what is good for one person, is not always good for another" on a any diet. Everyone is different. So maybe it will help for some people out there like me. I am sure this is not for everyone. I am doing something right? My husband last night after a year of saying NO Way will I go on any diet (with his big tummy) finally said, "Order me the blood test"! I have been so worried about him! I
have been so worried about my baby! Worried he will have a heart attack. He looks great everywhere but around
the middle and he has very high cholestrol & trig. This is a big step for him. I am thrilled for him!
Anyway, Lola thank you for the info on the Soy Milk, you all have the awesome info on so many things! Its incredieble the knowledge base you have! This Board is a God send! It really helps reading all the posts! Thanks again! Lola have a great day!

What a great story Mystic. Congrats on the weight loss. Eating the right foods in the right amounts goes a long way to creating weight loss in the right places. For me a high carb diet actually makes me gain weight because it sets off more cravings for carbs, which in turn puts the weight gain on my stomach. But, when I eat lean proteins and eat about half of my veggies cooked and half raw ALL the weight comes off the middle without fail. My blood sugar and lipids also  improve dramatically as well.

One thing that really hit me in the book "Mastering Leptin" (where the 5 rules below came from ) was when they said, "NEVER let doctors remove anything from your body, and do everything that you can to avoid having them do so".  The specifically go into the weight loss surgery.  I felt that was one of the most significant things that was said in that book.  Even liposuction is in question because of this.  After all, in 1996, they discovered leptin, a hormone used to regulate your weight amongst other things.  Whe is it produced?  In your fat cells.  When you remove them, you are throwing off a lot of systems in your body.

Just food for thought.
