I am 49 years old and have been wearing glasses for reading for the last 4 years. Each year I get my eyes tested and each year I've had to get stronger glasses.  My optometrist said that I should expect gradual and constant deterioration each year from now on, especially as I spend my working day in front of a computer.
The last time I had my eyes tested was in January, 2005. I had procastinated this year and only went today to get them tested, almost 2 years since my last test.
I was expecting bad news, more deterioration, but, to my surprise, there was none!!!!!!!! My eyes are the same as 2 years ago!!!!
I have been on BTD for almost 3 years but really compliant for the last 2 years.
It may be coincidence, it may not. I can't prove it either way. But I sure have got an enormous smile on my dial right now.

My pre-BTD diet was the normal 'healthy' diet: pasta, rice, vegetables, occasional meat which was usually chicken, fruit, etc.

so would you say the biggest change to your diet was adding more red meat?

That was definitely a big change but, like Peppermint Twist once noted, I actually eat more vegetables as well ... and a better class of vegetable. I never ate kale pre-BTD and I now grow it myself and eat it almost daily. I've eaten more broccoli in the last 2 years than all of my pre-BTD life. I never ate walnuts or pepitas pre-BTD and now they are my daily snack.
I see pre-BTD diet as consisting of grains as staple supplemented with vegetables.
I see BTD as vegetables (predominantly leafy green ones) supplemented with protein, mainly red meat.
But I also exercise more now. I really see the BTD as a holistic package. Sleep, exercise, diet. For me, it has just all worked marvellously together.

That is a very consise summary and exactly what I was looking for.  Gotta say I'm impressed that you grow your own kale.  What type?

I've tried a couple but cavollo nero is the best I find. It's beautiful raw in salads but also tasty cooked.
It grows off a central stem and I just pick off the lower leaves. My first crop has been growing for several months and it hasn't finished producing yet.
I even started growing a second crop so I wouldn't run out so now I've got more than I can eat   So now the chickens get the surplus and it makes their eggs even more golden.
Highly recommended.

Oh yeah, pre-BTD I drank lots of coffee where now I only drink green tea, water, pineapple juice and the occasional soda.

Yes it's nice to know that you don't need new glasses. Myself it's been nearly 6 years without a higher prescription and I am 68. I do wear varifocal lense and have done ever since they came out, that long ago I can't remember. My problem at the moment since starting my new diet is keeping my eyes open, that's right I seem to be sleeping all the time, and before the diet my sleep pattern was zilch could hardly sleep, 3 to 5 hours a night. Now I go to bed at 10pm asleep within minutes and get up at 6 am by 8am I sleep for an hour in the chair, then 11am another 1/2 hr. and another about 3pm and occasionally again at 6pm. I'm not too worried at the moment it's nice to get some decent sleep, but would be a bit worried if it continues. It must be down to my diet so once my body gets used to a different eating pattern, I will look at it again.

The BTD has made huge improvements in my eyesite as well. Pre-BTD I used to wear tri-focals, for reading/computer/distance. Some point into the diet (I was much more compliant at the beginning of my journey, due to health issues) I noticed that my glasses gave me a headache and so gradually stopped wearing them. The next time I went in for an eye exam, my prescription had changed for the better and I stopped wearing glasses altogether for three or four years. I attributed that to the BTD.

Just thought I'd chime in. For me, pre-BTD I was eating red meat (not a lot though as I realized that it didn't digest that well), wheat, nightshades, ice cream, cow dairy, etc. I can't even remember all I ate, it was so long ago. Sometimes I'll be walking down the isle of the grocery store (the middle isles) and see something that I used to eat and feel a pang at longing, but it usually passes quickly.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

Janet, no you can get this stuff in all kinds of hfs....it's the stuff just before Vit. A is provided; thatswhy it's calle provit.....A and it is a mixup between leukopene, alphacarotene,Cryptoxanthin,Zeaxanthin and Lutein....and here we are able without any harm, to take higher amounts, becasue your body transforms those stuffs to Vit. A but only what is really needed; normally it will be stored in the liver...and I remarked, even as being an AB, often we, the A's (here I am an A ) are in need of muchmore Vit. A.... then the other types....without getting in a toxifying situation

p.s.
mine I've got from Natural Factors (Canada...it's much cheaper- but NAP do have ocubright in those cases )

Welcome to the forum too.




Janet I didn't start off on BTD it was just me knocking the gluten on the head and as little lactose as possible. I struggled at first without the bread but I soon got used to just eating rice cakes, butter was also a problem but reading the forum I shall try almond butter, not much because I don't really miss it now. I eat a lot of fish up to a portion a day, plenty of vegetables and little white meat, peanut butter, all the time adding to the list. I stopped milk completely and now only have soya or rice milk. The effect to me has been amazing I have lost 7lb has I've said before, but I feel great. I just have this sleep problem, too much of it.

I think the excess sleep is probably due to a combination of things; primarily - long term lack of sleep before BTD, "toxins" from pre-BTD - stored in the form of fat, and healing from the removal of said toxins.  It may take a while, depending on how much healing needs to take place, for the body to reduce the sleep need, but I'm confident that it will subside as long as you get adequate exercise (physical and mental) to keep the body active.

Arthur,

A's tend to be sleepy creatures.  There was a point in my life just a few years ago when I had an extremely easy job and very little stress.  I had the opportunity to sleep to my heart's (and body's) content, and I found myself sleeping 10-11 hours a night plus 2-3 every afternoon.  It was interesting to see what my body needed when it had the opportunity to get it.  And I was 25---"too young to need that much sleep," an MD told me once.

Here's one thing I do now to give myself energy (now that I can't have coffee or tea for the next year or so):  I make a pot of red lentil soup with plenty of sea salt and a good bit of turmeric (enough to make it dark yellow and spicey).  While it's cooking, I fry up a TON of thinly sliced onions and some whole garlic cloves along with some cumin seeds.  Use lots of olive oil, like 1/4 c.  Once everything's done, spoon the soup into a large bowl, and top with plenty of the onions, along with the oil.  I feel really good when I eat this.  If I feel like I'm coming down with a cold, I make myself a big pot and eat only that, every meal, for a couple of days till the cold is gone.  In my non-pregnant state, a cold doesn't get beyond 2 days (thanks to the BTD).  This is good with fried okra (sprinkled with a little freshly-ground corriander) on the side, as well as some home-made spelt flat-bread.

For some reason this lentil recipe really hits the spot on my especially sleepy days.

vandelam, My eyes also improved on BTD, measurably.  I don't need  my reading glasses as much. I wore "regular" glasses for over 20 years, with progressivley stronger prescriptions, and don't need them at all now.

Arthuritis, almond butter is the variety of butter like peanut butter. You might try making some ghee if you miss dairy butter. Ghee is a snap to make and it's so very yummy!!!
Recipe for ghee, scroll down to the bottom (almost) of the page for the oven version. Also, I cook/bake mine on 350 and for slightly longer than an hour as I like mine a bit darker versus the yellow color of buttter
Also, if you don't mind, how many of these symptoms apply to you:

   *  Tendency to gain weight and unable to loose it, especially around the waist.
   * High frequency of getting the flu and other respiratory diseases and these
      symptoms  tend to last longer than usual.
   * Tendency to tremble when under pressure.
   * Reduced sex drive.
   * Lightheaded when rising from a laying down position.
   * Unable to remember things.
   * Lack of energy in the mornings and also in the afternoon between 3 to 5 pm.
   * Feel  better suddenly for a brief period after a meal.
   * Often feel tired  betweeen 9 - 10 pm, but resist going to bed.
   * Need coffee or stimulants to get going in the morning.
   * Crave for salty, fatty, and high protein food such as  meat and cheese.
   * Increase symptoms of PMS for women; period are heavy and then stop, or
      almost stopped on the 4th day, only to start flow again on the 5th or 6th day.
   * Pain in the upper back or neck with no apparent reasons .
   * Feels better when stress is relieved, such as on a vacation.
   * Difficulties  in getting up in the morning
   * Lightheaded
   * Mild depression
   * Food and or inhalant allergies
   * Lethargy and lack of energy
   * Increased effort to perform daily  tasks
   * Decreased ability to handle stress
   * Dry and thin skin
   * Hypoglycemia
   * Low Body Temperature
   * Nervousness
   * Palpitation
   * Unexplained hair loss
   * Alternating constipation and diarrhea
   * Dyspepsia

If you want to share, , you can just quote this post and highlight and delete what doesn't apply to the symptoms, then highlight and underline what symptoms apply to you.

vandelam...congrats on your eyes staying the same and not getting any worse since on BTD.  Mine are the same in the last four years whereas before BTD they were getting progressively worse.   I only changed glasses this year so I could get a newer updated look.

Before BTD, I used to wear trifocals, but since BTD I only wear glasses for using the computer (and that's because I like the font to be really small so I can fit more on the page!), and sometimes not even then. This was one thing I was really surprised about (better eyesight). Wuu-huu!

Before BTD I needed reading glasses, now I don't. Do still need them for far away and would like to have Lasik done but am too chicken. Rich wants it too. Maybe we could both have one eye done at a time .

In Dr. Hal Huggins' book Uniformed Consent he talks about how removing mercury fillings and detoxifying mercury from the body can improve eyesight, specifically he related nearsighted and astigmatism problems to mercury. The example he gave was about a 50 year old person whose eyesight improved after dealing with his mercury issue.

Ahhh, one more reason to remove the mercury. I have both nearsightedness and astigmatism. Thanks MoDon!!!

Don't do the Lasik.  Wait & see how nutrition works.  I don't remeber how long you have been on the BTD or have been 'into nutrition'.  But certain things takes time--months & maybe years.....

Quoted from Ribbit


Here's one thing I do now to give myself energy (now that I can't have coffee or tea for the next year or so):  I make a pot of red lentil soup with plenty of sea salt and a good bit of turmeric (enough to make it dark yellow and spicey).  While it's cooking, I fry up a TON of thinly sliced onions and some whole garlic cloves along with some cumin seeds.  Use lots of olive oil, like 1/4 c.  Once everything's done, spoon the soup into a large bowl, and top with plenty of the onions, along with the oil.  I feel really good when I eat this.  If I feel like I'm coming down with a cold, I make myself a big pot and eat only that, every meal, for a couple of days till the cold is gone.  In my non-pregnant state, a cold doesn't get beyond 2 days (thanks to the BTD).  This is good with fried okra (sprinkled with a little freshly-ground corriander) on the side, as well as some home-made spelt flat-bread.

For some reason this lentil recipe really hits the spot on my especially sleepy days.


I tried your recipe and it is absolutely wonderful!  My 23 year old type A daughter said it was the best soup she ever had. Thanks!

vandelam,

Congratulations on your improvements!

Now, if you take the secretor test you'll have even more helpful information!  It's well worth buying.

Finally, I highly, highly recommend that you buy a copy of Dr. D's "Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia", and follow the anti-inflammatory protocol.  I can't tell you how much it has helped me, particularly the Deflect, ginger, and cayenne pepper.
