It's been 3 months since I started the BTD life style. I had high cholesterol before BTD, and just after a month the results were very encouraging. I havent gone for a blood test to find out where the readings are these days, but suffice to say that I feel very, very healthy ! The most amazing result I saw was the subsiding of the swelling on my shoulder & joints. The resulting numbness used to give me sleepness nights which led to more health issues like fatigue. No amount of exercise would make me feel ok , but just by following the protocols of BTD, I feel superbly great . The bonus is that my clothes have become baggier  and everyone who sees me wants to know what the secret is. So far, 2 households are following the BTD lifestyle, not to a T, but atleast they avoid the avoids and focus on the beneficials. We are vegetarians, and the two households I mentioned dont even eat eggs, which I do. I've given away 5 copies of LR and hopefully they'll see the light at the end of the tunnel.

There are many challenges facing vegetarians and folks who live in Asia. Many food products are untested , but one can still follow the BTD lifestyle, with a bit of planning & perseverence . Reading the ingredients list has become second nature. It infuriates the non believers ..but hey I dont want to be where I used to be!

This board has been immensely helpful and if not for the support of the members here, I wouldnt have paid attention to many things mentioned in the book, or correctly interpreting information . I'm in turn able to pass on that info to my family members

I have found my own balance with the food categories, what is comfortable and what isnt, despite the beneficial status assigned to food categories. I have had to up my water intake from 3.5L to 4.5L, coz I noticed that the flax seeds were somehow absorbing all the water I drank.

The only small down side of my 3 month target is that, I wanted to add another kilometer to my 7km morning runs...but 10 days ago I hurt my knee by skidding and so I've been brisk walking and not running... so that stretch of additional 1km will have to wait till my knee feels better.

I'm also concerned that in a couple of weeks time I'll be going on pilgrimage..and following the BTD way of life will be close to impossible. I will be able to avoid wheat, but I can forsee that my rice intake will go up. Also, currently I eat 6 different vegetable servings everyday which will also be a problem. At the most 3 veggies, out of which cabbage & potato will definitely be there ...At least I'm getting hold of a compliant rice powder from Australia ....

So that's how it goes. Feels good to read my journal and see where I have arrived and almost predict when I will have to forgo the BTD life style.

Thanks for everything and hopefully in April I'll have a clean bill of health vis a vis the cholesterol...

Great three month testimony, accidental_chef.

A little pre-planning, organization, and buying some 'travel' foods for your pilgrimmage should be helpful to keep you on track of this lifestyle while awhile from home.  

Ideas: dried fruits, packable or cans of vegetables, protein powders, seaweed, nuts/seeds, pre-made portable homemade food, canned beans, and compliant bread/crackers if you eat grains.

More findings and updates...

I discovered that I was sleep deprived. All my life 6 hours at a stretch at night was sufficient with a top up of 2hrs siesta...but now that I'm back at work, I dont have my siesta. I didnt realise the side effects of sleep deprivation until I discovered that I had put on weight (not the scales but the waist band)...and wondered whether it could be too much nuts, or beans etc., So I eliminated the probable suspects to no avail. That's when it struck me that my schedule had undergone a drastic change and my work load had increased with not much changes in dietary portions. So I changed my waking times so that I get 8hrs sleep. My body is used to waking up at 4am, it still does, but I dont zip out of bed. And the effects are pretty dramatic. Now the body feels like a deflated balloon, the darkening on the sides of the cheekbones have disappeared and the brain certainly feels less foggy.

I also discovered that 6 eggs a day wasnt actually a comfortable option for me. Tinkering around, I figured that 1 egg a day is the best option. It's like as if I'm comfortable following the portion recommendations in LR. Mixed nuts (pumpkin & walnuts) 1 Table spoon on alternate days; Black eyed beans, cooked 100gms, on alternate days with my salad and so on so forth. I found the recommended portions for beans in LR way too much for my system. And I'm comfortable having all forms of proteins in the earlier part of the day and preferably none for the dinner.

The Rice Protein powder continue to give me lots of energy and keeps me away from craving for grainy carbs & wheat. 5 teaspoons allegedly provides 16gms of protein...and I have this 3-4 times a day mixed with pineapple, mango & banana puree, and ghee. I mix in a tablespoon of jaggery (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaggery) when I have it soon after my morning exercises.

I eat sauteed kelp in ghee twice a day and 1 sheet of Nori seaweed at tea break. Beneficials & neutrals form the bulk of my veggie intake. Pumpkin & Sweet potato are my prime carb source, and rice once a week. I must admit that I've allowed slightly more rice related stuff into my diet ever since knowing my secretor status. But the quantity doesnt exceed 1/2 a cup (cooked).

Avoids dont feature in my regular schedule unless I'm visiting or eating out. Even if I stay away from the obvious avoids, I have no control over the cooking oil used, or spices etc., So that's something I decided not to get stressed up about.

Exercises continue despite my work load. I do cardio 3 times a week, and weights 3 times a week. My stretching exercises incorporate many yoga-asanas. I think I'm doing OK here.

My supplementation continues with B complex, Bromelain, Dandelion, Chlorella, Maca, Calcium, Vit C, L Tyrosine & L Carnitine. I'm looking forward to adding Coleus Forskohlii into my daily life. Probably need to invest in a good digital weighing scale which can measure small weights like 50gms etc.,

Banana, mango, plum and pineapple feature daily in my diet. So does okra, dark green leafy veggies and also 3 varieties of bell peppers aka capsicum. Ground flax seeds go into my morning & afternoon protein mix.

Lemon-Salt water mix first thing in the morning and then throughout the morning & afternoon somehow helps me stay perky. Plain water too...

Ghee, of course through out the day. I have a hot cocoa with ghee & jaggery in the morning.

I'm scheduled for my annual check up in May, and now that I have read about the "real" deal on cholesterol numbers and the reality of triglycerides...I'm focussing on bringing down further my triglycerides numbers. It did come down significantly at the last test after being on BTD just for a month and totally eliminating grains. Fingers crossed...

Well that's about all from me now. I dont get much time to spend on the internet these days..but I do catch up on the various threads during my lunch break. I miss playing the word wrap though  ...

Thanks everyone for providing so much imformation and help! Keep up the support system going ...

accidental_chef...great work you are doing.  Lack of sleep and weight loss...yes...it can take a great toll on you even when you are eating compliantly.   If you can get the book 'Lights Out' by T. S. Wiley ISBN # 0-671-03867-2    52495...it is a wonderful book.  Especially for O's.  Thank you John (resting) for suggesting that years ago.

You are doing very well keeping in with BTD way of life...even with all the obstacles you are facing with food in your country.  I wish you well in your check-up.  

Glad to hear that you have changed the lives of others for BTD wellness.  Yes...and don't stress over what they are not following...it only makes things worse for you.    Hopefully, eventtually they will learn on their own which is the best way for them.   As the BTD forum is there for us (and them if they choose)...you can be there with your knowledge.  

Good luck and keep us posted.

Debra

accidental_chef, I find your testimonial absolutely fascinating...in how you have adapted your diet so compliantly and in a place with such  restricted availability.  

Keep us posted with the results of your tests and I hope you get good results.

Interesting to hear about the rice protein in Aus. I'll have to look into it and try and find one.  

Good to hear you now have others on the BTD - you can all encourage each other.

Good luck

Hello my good friends!

I have something to report.

Last year around this time (pre BTD of course) I had my annual check up and discovered that my cholesterol was way too high. Triglycerides and blood glucose were very normal. So the doc put me on medication, and sure enough there were nasty side effects like depression and palpitations etc., I stopped the medication after a couple of days. Scouted around for a solution, and finally found BTD in October which took care of my health immediately. Just after one month of following BTD my numbers came down drastically. You might have read about the Liver-Gall bladder flush I did last week. A day later I went for my check up. Blood test results are back now, and here it is:

May 2006    HDL 45                   Nov 2006  HDL 53        May 2007  HDL 49
                 LDL 232                                 LDL 173.9                    LDL  156
                 Total 298                                      240.2                           223
                 Ratio:6.6                                Ratio: 4.5                    Ratio: 4.6
                 Triglycerides  106                              65.6                           88
                 Blood glucose  75                               84.6                           69

I've read a lot of information about the myth of cholesterol numbers and how hyped up it is..and how the Pharmaceutical Companies are cashing in on this etc., Many members here have contacted me as well regarding this myth, and it all makes sense.

I havent seen my GP yet to discuss the results, but the above results are pretty decent, arent, they? My side of the family doesnt have a history of cardio vascular disease, so I was pretty taken aback when I saw last years results. Now I know:


the healthy wheat that I was eating was the biggest culprit. closely followed by lentils


heightened cortisol plays a crucial role. exercise is a must.


that vegetarian really means eating vegetables and not filling one's self with grains


sleep is crucial, minimum 8hrs  

I should, hopefully get the Coleus Forskohli by 3rd or 4th June, and that would help me further, wouldnt it?

I am quite pleased with the results...and would appreciate some feedback.

Thanks a million as always,
AC

I'm so impressed Cheffy, and happy for you.  Your results are especially dear, since you have to work so much harder than many of us, to find compliant foods and work with the foods of your culture.  Very good for you, and especially since you have accepted the fact that we are each completely responsibile for our own health.  

Regarding sleep, you're on the right track, and a lot of us are discovering the same thing you are noticing.  Not getting enough sleep, and at the right time, has long-reaching effects against our health.  I want to remind you that the most productive sleep is when it starts early enough.  10 pm is the latest we should get in bed, and ideally closer to 9 or at least 9:30 pm.  This is because of the adrenal gland and the cascade of hormonal outputs that depend on a healthy adrenal gland to be able to do their job in turn.

And I think you just had a birthday a couple of days ago!  I don't know if it was mentioned on another thread, but I'm not on the board as much as I usually am, due to work responsibilities for a few weeks.  I probably miss some important stuff, but I didn't want to miss you!    Many blessings to you, Dear.
Happy belated Birthday!



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.

Up your olive oil intake and exercising a bit so that you can kick your HDL too

Hi everyone!

I could've started a new thread for my First Anniversary of BTDing...but since there was already a thread I thought I'd just add on to it.

So, October 22nd marks my 1st Anniversary and it has been quite a journey! I've never felt so well and alive (except in my 20's of course) and it's good to be able to make healthy life style choices like the BTD..which has now become second nature. There are occassions where you cannot avoid the AVOIDS, but that is life. But left to my own devices, I dont fancy the AVOIDS one bit.

I started off on this diet coz I had cholesterol issues...but not anymore. It didnt make any sense as none of my family suffers from CVD, so it was good to get to the root of the problem, WHEAT, and eliminate it once and for all.

The only small struggle I have is with my lungs. And even that can be managed if I'm careful with what I eat. The immune system resides in one's gut...so anything which is going to tax it shows up on one's weak spots, which for me is my genetically under developed lungs.

My home is free of AVOIDS for O's & B's. Initially it was difficult cooking dishes we grew up with..but when the human spirit is pushed to it's limits, it finds alternatives..and then fine tuning it. Now the veterans dont note the difference in ingredients used coz they think I have gone back to the original recipe. Broad beans, a super beneficial for O's & B's do such a wonderful job of replacing Dals. No one knows about it. Ignorance is truly bliss, and in this case the added bonus is no more gas!

My focus is on the SuperBens & Bens and Neut Freq All for O's and B's and it seems to be working very well. Of course there are loads and loads of Asian vegetables, fruits, herbs and spices which are not tested yet, but we are getting by pretty well, despite the despites.

My extended family, although not 100% compliant are more aware of the effects of food. It's good to see wheat out of their kitchens. Although, I must share with you what an American friend commented the other day. That the wheat in the India didnt give her as much problems as wheat back in the U.S. This comment was further acknowledged by an Aussie friend. Both women are O's and they piled on the kilos with joint swellings whenever they ate wheat back home, but never in India. Interesting observation, but it isnt giving me the yippees to get hold of complimentary tickets to the nearest Wheat Park.

I know that I'm not eating the most super beneficial food catagory for my blood type-Red Meat & oily Fish. I get by with eggs and the rest of what is available from the food basket. Who is to know whether I'm in less than supreme health when compared to a meat/fish eating O? And what is perfect health anyway? So it's about choices and knowing your rights from wrongs,in this case Avoids from Alloweds.

I'm doing pretty well with my marathon training, the distances are building up slowly and I love the feeling of running.

And as always, I'm indebted to the support of the forum members. It's simply and  unbelievably amazing! Thank you all very much.

Hi! Thanks for pointing me to this thread. Living in Singapore as well, I share the difficulty you have in getting compliant foods here. We must get together and share our findings!

One thing that jumped out at me was the flax seeds and needing to drink more water, and the cholesterol. Have you tried cutting out some of the flax seeds and replacing them with flax oil? The oil helps with cholesterol and is lots easier to digest than the seeds. I get mine from Brown Rice Paradise at S$15.50 for an 8oz bottle. You have to add it after cooking because it loses its nutrition if you heat it up, but it absorbs well into beans and pea-based soups.

Keep up the good work!
