Hello, All--

My 26 year old son has decided that he wants to be a BTD'er, too!  

These last couple of months he has seen the difference its made in my health, and it seems as if he's decided to make a pre-emptive strike; in the best possible connotation of that too-used phrase!

He asked me to go grocery shopping with him this evening, so I was happy to spend some time with him.  He's an A+, but not sure of his secretor status, yet.  He made some good choices, and he also made some "getting there" choices.  He really eats lots and lots of cheese, and was feeling a bit stressed about not having Any.  When we turned down the aisle that had all of the Mexican food and he saw ALL of these yummy looking cheeses, he asked me if I would please write Lola an email to see if maybe some of the made-in-Mexico cheeses would be OK for an A!  

When we were at the check-out, there was a very young mother with a sick 2-week old baby at home.  She was trying to determine if Triaminic and Vapor Rub would be Ok to give/use with her precious little newborn.  He nudged me, and whispered to me, "Mom, you better go tell her about Dr. D's Baby Book before she really hurts that baby!"

I'm so proud of that young man of mine!

Love,

Myra.

Thanks for all of your support!!!  

I've really learned alot about how to encourage without nagging family members to consider BTD by reading the different threads here on the forums.

I passed on your messages of good will to John, and he said he might like to join us here---but not until Next Week.  He's in grad school and this is the last week of the semester, and he is pretty busy right now!  

Incidentally, he has so much work to do this week, and is so used to grabbing a burger or pizza, and feeling sluggish afterwards, that he decided to embrace BTD; he wants to feel good enough to stay awake and get his papers finalized!

Love,

Myra.

MyraBee, I would be jumping up and down for joy if my blood type A son would get on board.  An A could easily be in for a heart attack if he keeps eating red meat.  I'm lucky my A husband follows BTD.  I only wish I had heard about BTD earlier because he might have escaped his heart attack and subsequent bypasses some years later because of another attack.  But, I reckon 8 years on this plan since has done very good things for us.

I would say it's never too late to begin the BTD program.

Congratulations on your son's decision. I think he's made a very wise and important decision regarding his own health and perhaps influencing his quality of living.

It's so nice to have family members and friends who partake in this lifestyle so you can share in shopping, preparing, and eating healthy meals together.

Since your son is in the "transitional stage of being an "A" when he has a choice between a burger and pizza suggest he choses pizza.  I've totally transferred to turkey meat in all its forms and I don't miss "beef" at all.  I know it's not easy to go out and order a "turkey burger" but at least the pizza doesn't have all that "beef" to have to digest.  It's much easier on one's system to digest pizza, I believe.  It always takes time and before you know it your son will start choosing healthier type A foods.  

It sounds as if he's off to a "great start"!!!!!!

Thanks for all your good wishes!

As I said in an earlier post, this is John's last week for this semester--he's in Grad School. Worrying about getting all of his papers finished up was the catalyst for deciding to take the plunge into the BTD Pool. Well, I think it's making a big splash, and he's enjoying every minute of it!

Last night, at my suggestion, OK--Strong Suggestion--he took a tin of sardines with him to the Library for a late night. (He usually keeps the vending machines in business) This is the email he sent me--


That was so smart.

I just had my sardines. I wasn't crazy about the oil so I took them out and put them on a rice cake like an orderve. (sic) It was good and the best thing is there is omega three in them. So My brain function jolted. Talk to you later.

John


Isn't that great?! When one starts eating compliant foods and Feeling So Much Better, well it's a no-brainer!

Love,

Myra.


Now, if John could just remember more of his Private ElementarySchool French!

I'm happy for you and John, Myra!  

My University student daughter is also a BTD'r now, and it has helped her concentration ability!

In my own experience, cheese was one of the hardest things to give up, next to bread.  Now, after being dairy-free for 9 years, I can't stand to walk past the cheese section in Whole Foods because it stinks to badly of mold.  It's gross.  My husband and daughter love the smell and can't wait to get their block of mold home to eat.  After John gets over the first few weeks or months of no cheese, his body will  work through the cravings and they'll go away, IF he never gives into them.  Encourage him that there are other non-cheesy A's out here who have done it and he can too!

Wow, why am I just noticing this thread now?  Weird, wild, wacky.  Well, better late than never as far as noticing and responding:

1.  Myra, that is great that your son is taking this step for his health.  Hallelu!

2.  I think that when people either experience the BTD for themselves or see its results in someone they know, it is the best "advertisement" imaginable.  Once you experience it or see it up close and personal in another, you know it's the real thing.
