A month in, I have to say this has been relatively easy to get in to - not too much work really. I found my pre-BTD diet was all poison to me, which explained my extremely bad digestion & obsession with the bathroom!

So, after a 'clean' month, I tried a little test. I was a coffee-holic before, especially lattes, which I drank by the bucketload. So this weekend, I decided to 'treat' myself to a latte. Athough it was pleasant, I can't say that I was over the moon when I drank it. However, half an hour later I was cursing my stupidity when I was suffering severe nausea, stomach cramps & was drenced in sweat.

So, this really did prove to me that coffee & milk are poison to me! Funny thing was, I was in the middle of a massive trade show in an exhibition centre when I tried this 'experiment'. How stupid am I????

Hubby and I are doing this together, and there is no going back. This is our life from now on, no question! Why would you want to put food into your body that are poison?

Another benefit has been that I have lost 11lbs in 4 weeks. I have a long way to go, but what a great start!

I believe many have shared this sentiment.  

Once people feel or see how this lifestyle makes them feel, they are devoted to this way of life.

I have done many a test with eating meats and eating a strict vegetarian diet....I find since I am an A I have more energy and feel my best physically and emotionally when I stick to the BTD and leave out the meats.

I inadvertantly did a test at work on Friday...  It was at least as unpleasant as your incident.  
Glad you are doing well.  I have lost a bit of weight, but have resized some...  I am down at least an inch in the waist.

ArtyMiss,
The last Latte I drank was a few years ago, but it used to be my 'treat of choice' when we would travel to do big artisan's fairs.  I have to say that my reaction was very much the same as yours and I heeded the message my body was giving me!!

The other day I was wondering how I would feel if I did have the English Toffee Cappucino (I am glad that they don't sell it at Tim Horton's here in town anymore...it would have to be an out-of-town experience) that I used to drink once in a while.  Thanks for the input.  NOT going there anymore.

Congratulations on your commitment ArtyMiss and it looks like this month is your birthday, Happy Birthday a little late. You couldn't give yourself any better gift that what you are doing right now. Keep up the good work it is so nice you found the adjustment and easy one. What are your next goals? have you taken the test to find your secretor status yet? I bet working together with your DH makes it that much easier to keep compliant.
Thanks for sharing your success !!

Congrats on your success ArtyMiss.  I did "the test" over the holidays and wound up with bronchitis, diarrhea, flatulence, etc.  I got back on BTD and have lost over 10 pounds in 4 weeks.  I am working on eating as much beneficial as possible.  Thanks for sharing; it helps me tremendously!!!

ArtyMiss,

You have exactly the right attitude toward "relapse" that I think people should.

Most of the time, we're told that a relapse is a horrible, but inevitable thing which proves you will "always be addicted" to the substance you're used to.  They paint it in a very doom-and-gloom way, perhaps to encourage your codependency or something.

Anyhow, the relapse in the BTD is something completely different:  I think it's the body becoming so overconfident with how well it's doing under the diet, that it thinks it would probably be able to handle those "avoid" foods again, no problem.

Obviously, that doesn't happen.  The results are usually swift and painful.  

This leads me to conclude that these "lapses" are invaluable and even essential experiences for the BTD'er:  they allow us to notice in a clear and unconfusing way that, indeed, avoids are toxic to our systems, and are, indeed, to be avoided.

Another great feature of this diet is that I haven't noticed any withdrawal from people ceasing to eat their avoid foods, so long as they replace them with beneficials?  Has anyone noticed this?

Finally, I just wanted to say that you, ArtyMiss, should definitely get your secretor test done.  It's invaluable information that medical science -- led in its understanding by Dr. D -- is only beginning to understand.  Here's the link to the secretor test for you to order:

I'm with you on this one, Ronagon.  Beneficials have the effect on me of eliminating cravings.  I feel a deep satisfaction and no withdrawals whatsoever!

I second Victoria's quote. A compliant O is a happy O (and the other "letters," too!)

ArtyMiss,

How are things going for you?  It's been a few months, and I thought I would bump up a few of the testimonial threads to see if we can get some updates.
