Hi   This is my third day following the ERFYBT diet and so far so good. I have had joint and muscle pain for approx. 12 years. I have tried all conventional treatments but with limited success. My lower back and knees have been really troublesome for over six months and the only relief I have had has been from anti inflammatory drugs. I have recently returned  from a five week trip through Europe and England and have been determined to find help for this pain problem [drug free]. The cobble streets of Rome and the numerous flights of stairs everywhere we went seemed to make the pain worse, especially at night. I noticed the eat right book in a book store and it seemed to make sense to me so after purchasing it and the book on arthritis I set out on a mission to see if it would help. So far so good, I have noticed a decrease in pain and some weight has started to come off. I am encouraged with these early results! and I am happy to try this eating pattern if I can get rid of excess weight and pain. My blood type is o+. I am about to try making my own wheat, gluten free bread. Regards Lesley

Lesley-Welcome to the BTD forum.  If you go to the top of this page you can go click on the member center and get yourself a nice blood type shield avatar so that you won't have to post your blood type each time you post and everyone can see at a glance what blood type you are.  

O+, joint and muscle pain, troublesome knees and lower back pain-yep-eliminating the grains as much as possible will be a great benefit for you.   I would also suggest getting your secretor status checked out.   That would be a great benefit for you from the start.  You have the Eat Right book.  The Live Right book tells you about your secretor status.  

Being an O+ and a non-secretor myself, I tend not to eat any grains at all, if possible.  Rice as a treat maybe once or twice a month.  Grains are your biggest enemy being an O and more so if you are an nonnie.

There are many recipes in the typebase (at the top of this page also) for breads you may want to try.  Remember, some may have avoids and to always check the ingredients.  And...labels on products you buy.  So many hidden avoids.  

Best of luck to you.

Just to add-eating the beneficial foods for your type as much as possible will help you to heal better.  Lots of veggies (especially greens spinach, kale, swiss chard, romaine lettuce, beet greens) and protein (red meat, fish, lamb, sardines), fruits (blueberries, cherries, mangoes, bananas, plums, prunes).  Just watch the fruits because of the sugar intake in them.

Exercise is a biggy for Type O's as we need it to sweat to get the stress out.  Most feel wonderful after their workout.

What vitamin supplements are you taking?

Welcome, Leslie!  Congratulations for joining us in Eating Right 4 Your Type.  
That kind of pain you describe sounds awful.  It must be difficult to sleep when you hurt all over.  
I'm glad the BTD is working for you.  You'll just feel better and better!  
Good luck with your bread!  I may make some tomorrow, my white spelt flour just arrived from Purity Foods.  I haven't had any bread for quite a while since I ran out.  Let us know how it comes out.  Don't eat too much of it!

Welcome, Lesley!

A really great unspoken theme about the BTD is that, when we eat the foods that harmonize with our own systemic "hard-wiring", it is very anti-inflamatory.  And inflamation is the enemy, arthritis being but one symptom of it.  I'm so glad you happened upon ER4YT and the arthritis book and are giving the BTD a try!  I'm particularly glad you found the arthritis book, as I am currently just starting reading another of the health library books (the diabetes book--I don't have diabetes and I want to keep it that way!) and I love how it is broken down into super beneficials, beneficials, neutral-occasional and neutral-infrequent, as I feel this is very helpful and user-friendly.

Anyway, cutting out the wheat, adding pineapple and pineapple juice (very anti-inflammatory), and focusing on your super beneficials and beneficials is really going to work wonders for you, me thinks.  Another thing that I do (I have very "crunchy" knees, which a doctor termed "chondromalacia" at one point) is that I take glucosamine sulfate.  If you opt for that, be aware that you won't notice much for three MONTHS or so, as what it does is provide a building block for cartilege, and it takes time for the building block to actually build, to get in there and repair.  But I really feel it helps me.  A surprise side benefit is that it seems to cut carb cravings!  No clue why that is for me, but it just is.  I went off glucosamine sulfate once and realized then just how much less crunchy my knees are when I do take it.  Oh, and also, Dr. D. says that O's should get the plain glucosamine sulfate, not one "bundled" with chondroiten, as the supplement often is.  Chondroiten is basically an O avoid, per the big guy (Dr. D.).

Finally, don't forget to incorporate daily exercise, just to the best of your ability, into the mix.  It is important.

P.S.  I have recently gotten pointed in the direction of Crocs brand shoes, by other posters on this board, for plantar fasciitis.  I LOVE these and highly recommend them.  Don't let the initial blast of ugliness vis-a-vis the fact that they are made out of hardened Vasoline or something scare you off.  They are the BEST!

Anyway, again, welcome!!!  You are definitely in the right place and on the best diet, especially for arthritis!

PT, I have chondromalatia too.  I was never told to take anything, just that I'd need knee replacements before I was 50.  I'm 43 (next week!) and my right knee hurts a little now and then but my left is fine.  I'm going to try the glucosamine supps you mentioned.  Thanks!

Hey there, I am new as well and I must say...it is such a relief to find people with the same symptoms...I have been told I was insane (possible), overly sensitive, too dramatic (ok...at times), and everything else except that my body is not suppose to only eat vegis and whole wheat....sheeeeesh!! After only a few days with the benificial foods I am having segments of each day where I actually feel clear and clean...no volcano erruptions through my system, don't have to loosen my belt every time I eat (the wrong thing), and actually feel full. I am an x-athlete and have had many surgeries on my knees etc so just thought that the pain was my way of life....it is already not so! I am feeling like I just got a lube job, very happy here. I have ordered 5 books, and am going to send off my secreter test this week, although I am staying close to the non secreter diet because it seems to work best. Any way, thanks all of you who have shared enough for us to relate and be able to find this pathway to heal.

Hi Lesley,
I am pretty new to the BTD myself (see my post a few topics down "This Diet is Amazing"). I have been on the diet several weeks now, and my joint paint, knee pain, and back pains are all completely GONE!
I agree with the person who said that your best bet as an O is to avoid all grains as much as possible--that is what I do, and it has made a huge world of difference. Honestly, I don't miss bread or grains at all.
I used to wake up pretty stiff in the morning and would have to really warm up to be able to touch my toes to the floor. Now, I can get out of bed, and touch my PALMS to the floor without any warm up at all--no pain, no stiffness!

I make a wonderful Type O "Green Smoothie" every day for dinner--it is so good! It is like a raw green soup made with lemon juice, lots of fresh ginger, beneficial greens like parsley, chard, dandelion greens, spinach, etc., and a little bit of stevia for sweetener (I put in a little bit of water or fresh celery juice to make it easier to blend it). I tell you, my body just soaks it up! And the fact that it is blended makes it so much easier for my body to digest it without having to chew it for forever and a day.

Good luck to you, and let us know how it's going!

Oh, let me clarify.  I wasn't told to take the glucosamine sulfate, I kinda figured that part out years later once I got onto the old board here.  The orthopedist or whatever he was that I went to about the crunchy knees at the time just said I had that and told me to do a ridiculous amount of leg lifts each day and that was that.  At least, at the time (pre-BTD), it sounded like a ridiculous amount of leg lifts.  And he didn't really demonstrate or give me a handout about what he meant, so I never did it.

Contrast that with my new primary care doc, who, when I mentioned that I think I have plantar fasciitis, mailed me a handout detailing exercises to do for it, which I received last night.  Apparently, it (alleviating plantar fasciitis that is, not alleviating condromalacia...although the following couldn't hurt with that, either) is all about stretching out the hamstrings.  Figures.  I have the most inflexible hamstrings in the history of the human species.  Anyway, I've already started doing the exercises today.  My new doc rocks.  I'm SO thrilled to HAVE a doctor.  Haven't had one in years and it is, very surprisingly to me, as I thought I hated doctors as a general rule, a very comforting feeling.  If anything happens now, I can just get on the horn and say "Help!  I've fallen and I can't get up!"

Hi, all you chondromalaciacs!  Wow!  So many!  I had my first flare-up when I was 9, riding bikes with my 72-year-old grandpa.  My knee swelled up like a melon.  The first of many flare-ups. In grad school, I was walking on a path once and my knee just felt like someone stabbed me.  It took a month to go away.  The mysteries of that floating cartilage!

I'm back on the bike again.  The biggest turn-around I had was the T-Tapp workout.  I don't actually do it much now--I did the bootcamp and a few weeks' worth--but the change in quad muscle strength (and, presumably, hamstrings) was SO amazing that my knees have barely twinged since, despite riding up some SERIOUS hills in the past few weeks.   And I had pretty darned strong quads--that is, parts of the quad muscle--before:  in college, I rowed, which is almost all legs; I also fenced; and I've been a regular walker for years in addition to having had leg-centered physical therapy for my back a few times in the last two years.   I'm now convinced that I just wasn't working the whole leg.  T-Tapp basically works out the leg while it distracts you with other great exercises.....couldn't move on day 2 of the workout, but on day 4 I was a (slightly sore) new woman!  Just another thing to add to the mix.

Of course, BTD compliance does wonders for inflammation, too!

I have condromalacia too.  I'm a skiier and used to be a tennis player.  I also have some back pain and lately my hips have been bothering a bit, sort of like they are out of alignment until I really get moving.  I'm 62 and I notice my knees the most when climbing stairs.  It doesn't bother me as much in the house if I'm barefooted.  I take glucosamine sulfate and Deflect.  It would probably be much worse if I didn't.  When I ski in the winter I wear neoprene "sleeves" and I guess it's the heat they generate with exercise that make the knees feel better.  Walking around in heavy ski boots probably doesn't help.  They don't bother me while I'm exercising just afterwards.  One of these days, I'll probably have to do something about them but for now, I just push through.

Glad to hear that, at 62, that "one of these days" hasn't come yet.  I keep thinking I should do arthroscopy, but the longer I can wait, the better.  Had back surgery last year and could do without more surgery ever!

Twisty I converted to Crocs a few months ago also. The ugliest shoes That I've ever seen and the most comfortable also. Actually after Katrina everybody around here started wearing them from little kids to coffin dodgers. They were $30 or so, could just be hosed off if they got storm surge sludge on them, didn't slip on roofs, and let air in to limit fungal diseases. The only problem was that the stores originally only carried putrid pink, obscene orange, yellow duck feet fever etc. BTW the imitation Crocs are just that, imitations.

hhhmmmm "Chondromalaciacs"-so that's what it's called.  I used to have it, but don't seem to anymore.  Actually, just checked as I had forgotten about it.  No noise going up the stairs.  I had gone to my "doctor" years ago to ask him about it.  He said "Does it hurt?"  I said  "No."  He said "Don't worry about it then."

Thanks Debra and everyone else who has commented on my post. Day 4 and I am feeling pretty good. Is this too good to be true. I have my husband interested as he had an operation for bowel cancer early this year, with good results. We want do do everything possible to improve our health as we have both suffered health issues in the last 6 months. The wheat free, gluten free bread i baked yesterday was great! Today I went mad and totally overhauled the fridge and pantry! I am trying foods I have never even heard of.  "I feel goooood"

Lesley-your welcome.  Anytime.  From everyone, I am sure.  Too good to be true...just pinch yourself.   This is for true.  Is it a miracle?  Sometimes I think yes.  Actually, it is the way we are supposed to feel.   Keep going girl, it only gets better.

Your hubby is interested too!  What blood bype is he?  Since he had an operation for bowel cancer early this year, I would pick up Dr. D's Cancer fighting book.  Another good one is the Complete Encyclopedia.

Glad you enjoyed the wheat/gluten free bread.  Have a slice for me.  I reeeaaaalllllyyyyy like pumpkin seed butter, olive oil, nutritional yeast and ground flax seeds on mine.  Now, it is just a dream.

Don't be shy.  Any questions, just ask away.  Someone will help and if they can't they will link you up with something that probably can.

Since you are on such a good roll-secretor tests would be very good to get done.  Then you will know from the beginning.

Have a great day.

Debra

The were originally designed as boating/deck shoes.  They are great for life in the Hurricane belt!
Quoted from gulfcoastguy
The only problem was that the stores originally only carried putrid pink, obscene orange, yellow duck feet fever etc. BTW the imitation Crocs are just that, imitations.

I agree, the imitation ones do not--repeat, do NOT--feel like the originals.  It is all about the material (which I believe is patented), the contour of the insole, and the depth of thickness of the sole, me thinks.

CROC PRO'S:

1.  Very supportive and comfortable
2.  Extremely versatile
3.  Affordable
4.  Durable
5.  Lightweight, easy to pack and carry if camping or backpacking
6.  If you have wide feet, you've found Mecca.  Crocs come in "M" only, but they run wide!

CROC CONS:

1.  The holes located near the toes in the classic "Cayman" model allow sand, grass clippings, etc. to get in sometimes.  Nothing major, though.
2.  They do not come in half sizes, and the whole sizes run large.  I'm normally an 8, for example, but in Crocs, I could use a 7-1/2.  But you get used to the roominess!
3.  If you wear the black or other dark colors with no socks, some of the dye can come off on the sole of your foot.  I imagine this stops happening as the shoes age.  Again, no big wu.

I think they are the best shoe EVER.  It is hard to find the good colors, but you know what I've recently discovered?  You can order these on Amazon and they have ALL the colors!  Stand back, world, there's a new Imelda Marcos in town!  I currently have four pairs and want to get the full spectrum *lol*!  For YEARS, I walked around in a decrepit pair of Wal-Mart faux birkenstocks, so now I'm making up for lost time.  Once I figured out that I have plantar fasciitis, I decided I have to treat myself to good shoes, this is ridiculous.  I couldn't go on with the Wal-Mart and Payless route!  So I have four pairs of Crocs:

1.  Black (a must have)
2.  Tan (ditto)
3.  Navy (ditto to the ditto)
4.  Blinding Neon Magenta (that's when I knew I had a Croc-buying habit *lol*!)

I am hot on the trail of the purple and the sky blue.

On the topic of Cros: I love them also. I have two pairs, but only got my second pair (coffee brown) after I wore off the tread on the first pair (sage green). I live in these shoes; in California, I can wear them near all year round. In Colorado, they will become a summer shoe, me thinks. They are also great for wearing around the house instead of slippers.

I only have the brown ones but I saw a pair of medium blue, not baby blue or navy and it IS payday? The red might not be bad also. The dog doesn't chew them either. Takes them outside and plays with them but doesnt chew them. Crocs can be put in the washing machine on cold water cycle if they get full of dirt while mowing the grass, just don't put them in the dryer. Oh Drea, calculus II is all about memorizing the formulas. Believe it or not all the important ones will fit on one piece of paper. Be glad you don't have the troll I had teaching it 25 years ago....at an 8 AM class at that.

Hi . My husband is A blood group and i am impressed the way he is embracing this diet. We are both sleeping better and i  am still experiencing a reduction in muscle pain [day 6] We live in Australia, I presume I can have the secretor test sent to me. Also one of the recipes in the ER4YBT cook book mentions a stick of butter. Can anyone tell me what the measurement of a stick of butter is?
I am confused about apple cider vinegar. The Arthritis book says I can have it but the other books have it as a avoid food item. I went to a naturopath 3 months ago and she recommended it daily.

Quoted from gulfcoastguy
Crocs can be put in the washing machine on cold water cycle if they get full of dirt while mowing the grass

Once again, gcg, you provide news I can use!!!  My black ones seemed to get very dirty very quickly, and you would think training the hose on them to rinse 'em off would do the trick, but I think running 'em through the cold-water cycle of the washing machine would really spiff 'em up!  Thanks!  For some reason, I wouldn't have thought of that.  You need to move down here and become my life coach.  The pay is terrible, but you would definitely be doing a public service.  I need a full-time Mr. French sort of character (remember the "Gentleman's Gentleman" from the sixties sit-com "Family Affair"?  Lord, I'm old.).  You are kinda like Mr. French, only less formal, more able to do things yourself, way more fun, and you don't always speak in the plural.

Yes I remember the show . Don't think I could handle all the work elements of the role, I am an excellent cook, a poor housekeeper, have little patience with kids(think that saying"well what are you going to do about it" is the answer to 90% of kid drama). Yep my performance appraisal would be poor. PS my washing machine is a front loader and doesn't have one of those agitater thingies inside so try it with your oldest pair first if yours does.

One other Croc "con":  long, sharp items such as Bougainvillea thorns and nails can penetrate the soft soles and getcha.  Therefore, proceed with caution in, for example, Bougainvillea-intense areas.
