Rodney, I'm so happy for your success on the BTD, and impressed that you realized something might have been off with your original blood typing, so before writing off the diet, you doublechecked it and, lo and behold, it had indeed been wrong.  And now that you are on the diet for your actual type instead of the type you believed you were due to that incorrect typing by an ND, lo and behold again, you are feeling better!  That just shows ta go ya that this diet is not about placebo effect!  If it were, you would have felt better on the B diet.  It took being on the diet for your type to work for you.  To me, this is always the most convincing thing about the BTD:  for example, all the A's I know feel better on A food and don't do well on O food, and all the O's I know feel WAY better on O food and don't do well on A food.  That proves that this customized diet works.  Otherwise I could live on salads with balsamic vinegar, almost never ingest protein or fat, and feel great, like my Type A neighbor across the street does.  But I can't.  And my Type A co-worker who hates "grease" and feels poorly anytime she eats anything other than a very low-fat meal would not react that way, yet she does.  If I ate what they eat (been there, done that), I'd be climbing the walls.  If they ate what I ate, they'd feel sluggish and probably have a heart attack.  To me, this proves the inherent truth of the BTD.  If it was really just working because it is x, y, or z (like low in junk food, high in fruits and veggies, or whatever else it is across the board), then each of the individual ABO diets would have the same effect on everyone.  But they don't.  And that is the point of it and the proof of it.

Thankfully, you didn't dismiss the diet, but instead questioned the results of your blood typing test--good for you (literally!)!  I'm happy for you and for all of us because you have become a very fabulous part of this community!

Rodney - you certainly have proved like Peppermint Twist has said that the placebo effect does not exist in this diet!

Thank you so much for sharing your very interesting and persistant journey which definitely shows that persistance pays off!!  

Thanks for your inspiration Rodney - and all of you on this board which can go toward changing the quality of  one's health which contributes to one's quality of life

Hi,
This would be a good place for an update on my BTD.
Things are all good to great.
of course there are always a few bumps in the road but don't let them discourage you.
after getting started on an exercise and yoga schedule along with the diet all I can say is WOW!!
I have been down to as low as 210 Lbs but since I have started more exercise and yoga I am eating a little more and back up to 220 lbs. but I don't see it in my waist or belly my legs and arms are gaining muscle so thats good. I am wearing my 34 levis now instead of the 36 if I got in to my old 32's that would really be something but not that big of a deal for me.
Strength is the gain I feel most now after getting over a few health issues.
With Strength everything else follows along for me.
Thanks Dr. D for everything..
and you all who have helped me along the way.

thanks Guys.

Isa replied on another thread that L-glutamine wasn't good for A's. Could someone corroborate? I was taking 500mg to 1g a day, but stopped awaiting more info...

perhaps this might help....
Cortiguard and L-glutamine have opposite effects...Cortiguard lowers your cortisol levels where L-glutamine raises them......
