I became interested in the BTD at the advice of an intelligent friend. The hardest hurdle to overcome was replacing red meat and potatoes with fruits and vegetables. I found myself glued to the BTD like a bee to honey.
The first thing I noticed that as an "A" who, before BTD, ate a lot of red meat and potatoes, I had to exercise a lot to stay in shape. Since BTD, I hardly exercise (and when I do, it's walking, not the repeated trips to the gym), I'm in good shape and weigh only a few pounds more than I did when I graduated from high school.
My greatest challenge, however, was when I was diagnosed with cancer (testicular). Chemotherapy occurred a year after being on the BTD and instead of losing weight and becoming skeletal, I gained 50 lbs! It's been over five years since my cancer treatment; I'm healthy because of Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo and L. Ron Hubbard's Purification Program (designed to help rid the harmful effects of drugs - like those nasty chemotherapy drugs I got - and help you think clearly and in the present).
I've been on the BTD since 1999 and absolutely love it. My advice to anyone concerned with their appearance and whether they want to gain or lose weight: count every calorie. The 50 lbs. I gained during chemotherapy melted away by following Dr. D'Adamo's exercise guidelines. I even became a traditionally-published author since BTD and since cancer.
