I started following BTD in November 2006.  Since that time I have lost 15 pounds, putting my BMI within normal range for my height!!  I also have noticed that I have more energy, most of my aches and pains are gone, and I just feel a whole lot better!  

It has really meant changing some lifestyle habits.  I was not someone who did much cooking before.  Now I cook mostly on the weekends so I have things to reheat during the week, which makes it much easier.  Also, the recipe database on Dr. D's website has been awesome for new ideas!  

I don't yet know my secretor status, but I do have the test here.  Just have to do it and send it in.

Hi Jill...thanks for your testimony and glad to hear that BTD has helped you towards better health.  No aches and pains... I love it too.  Secretor test...yep...once you know you can fine tune some more or stay the way you are at if you are following the secretor way.  Cooking from scratch...love it.

Your testimony, Jill, was awesome.  Honestly!  There are so many people who think food has nothing to do with aches and pains!

I have a sister named Jill and she lives in Iowa.

Welcome, Jill, and get that secretor test done! Knowing makes a world of difference. Lots less questions about food yesses & no's.
I agree with the business about the joint pains and food connection, BTD cured my tendonitis and "arthritis." Amongst a ton of other worse complaints....

Great news, Jill!  Thank you for sharing, and I'll bet the good benefits just keep on getting better and better.  It's encouraging to others to hear of successes, and I know that many will relate to what you have said.  
What part of Kentucky?  Maybe you have told us in another thread, but I don't remember.

Hi Jill in Ky, I just posted to you in the 'sleep' thread and then noticed you here. I'm originally from Lexington. Lots of family in Ky. We, my husband and I, are both from there and get up there 6-8 times a year... not near enough!
Welcome

Welcome Jill and thank you sharing your testimony.

Many people have also expressed that they do alot more cooking at home now since starting this way of life, since the focus is on whole, natural foods.

Jill, Welcome to the BTD and the forums! It's great to hear the success of others. I have a son in Louisville that started the BTD 10 days ago and is also having some great results.  Keep up the good work and keep posting so we'll be able to share in your successes!!

Thanks everybody for the warm welcome!!  

MoDon, Debra + and OSuzana - I'll let you know as soon as I get the secretor results back!  

NHGirl - I don't meet many other Jill's.  Good to know there are some out there.  

Victoria, Slee, and Mare eo - I'm in Bowling Green, about an hour north of Nashville, TN and 2 hours south of Louisville.  I'm actually headed to Lexington next week.  

Gumby - The results for me have really been amazing!!  My parents are also following BTD with similar great results.  In fact we are all quickly becoming fanatics.    We have been telling everyone about BTD!!

Bowling Green, huh? I have family there too. Dad's side, Sutherland is my maiden name. If you know any and like them they are mine, if you know any and don't like them ... Sutherland who?  
I also have a ton of family in Louisville ... which I lovingly refer to as "Loser-ville", it's a basketball thang, I'm sure you understand! Most of my immediate family (husband's too) are in the heart of Lexington. I love that city. I'm headed that way for the May graduations!
Give Lex a shout out for me while you're there!

, don't think I know any Sutherland's (whether like or dislike  ).  I'll be on the lookout for them though.  Lexington is a great city!  I'm looking forward to my trip.  The World Equestrian Games are going to be held at the Horse Park there in the near future.  I think it's the first time they will be held outside of Europe.

Back to BTD ~ Have gotten a bottle of Pro-Berry 3 and started taking it.  I have used Sambucol before and like the results with it, but the Pro-Berry tastes better.  I'm doing a maintenance dose (1/4 teaspoon a day).  We are inundated with the flu around here.  All of the schools in this area were closed today because of it.  Anyone else doing maintenance with Pro-Berry?  I'd love to hear your thoughts about it.

I love ProBerry and take a little over a tsp a day.  It's a very effective anti-viral, especially if you don't burden your system with avoids.

When I lived in Richmond, Lexington was a modest sized city and Louisville seemed so big!  I understand that Lexington has grown by leaps and bounds.  Is it as big as Louisville now?

Jill, have your parents joined the forum, yet?  Please encourage them to log on!!  
It's more than wonderful that they follow BTD, also.  It gives my heart a big lift.

It is great that your folks have gotten into the BTD.  I can't seem to convince many people here to try it.
It's their loss.  I have various friends that are ill due to bad diet.  As a matter of fact a good friend who will be 66 on Sun. 2/18 is in a nursing home on a feeding tube.  Many years of drinking a lot of soda pop gave her diabetes & it has ravaged thru her body. [I never told her I think the pop did it.  I try to be asupportive friend.  One can't turn back the clock, but we can support friends.]
Another factor is the 'health care' system.  She has been on disability & the welfare system doesn't pay for nutritional-oriented care.  At the first diagnosis, maybe 15 years ago, another friend sold her a liquid supplement & it helped a little & at least the diabetes didn't progress. But she couldn't afford to pay so much regularly.  If I were rich, I would spend my money helping folks like this.  If she could get on nutrtional protocols & the BTD, she would be in better shape.  She is type A blood which makes it difficult in our culture.  I don't think she would like the A diet.  Maybe if she were O or B, it would be easier. [BTW, her favorite food was ham! Yuck!]
 What can we do but support her? [& pray, of course!]  
Anyway, thank God -& I know you do-that you found the BTD.   I'm so thankful I found it, too.  Congrats on your success in so short a time!!!!!!!
Love,
Mrs "T"    O+

Well, I have to say that my parents and I are trying to share BTD information with many people.    Some are very interested, but I too have the friend that I don't think will every really consider this lifestyle.  She is Type O and has allergies and uses an inhaler at times.  Also, she was diagnosed with high cholesterol within the last year.  Of course, she tried to address her cholesterol with a low fat diet as recommended by her physician and then ended up on meds.  She is a big wheat, corn and white potato eater.  Doesn't really like much else, so it would be really hard for her to change.   It is difficult to sit by and watch someone struggle when you know something could really change their life, huh?   But, I guess we can only really make decisions for ourselves.

You can't force feed her...  

I've come to the conclusion that I can offer a suggestion, then it is up to them to get more information, either from me or other sources.  Unfortunately, most just go back to the same doctor that hasn't helped them in the past.

Hey Jill - good going!  It's great to feel better and having the side effect of losing weight makes it that much sweeter.  Good for you!
