Yes. as KK says, chlorella is the one ...its the one I used, and my health practitioner had me use lots of fish oil to move the toxins out of the body safely....that is not usually the best for O's but for this purpose, I took it. there were a couple of other things which I now forget...so maybe try working with a practitioner.....and Vit C!

Hey
I felt a difference the next day! More and more things cleared up and improved as time went on, but some pain went imediately. Some foods so clearly reacted badly in my system, and I was so pleased to find this Diet which fit with the unexplained combination of foods!

Hi AnneofJulie,
Welcome, I am a newbie also. I tried to start this in June, but I struggled and did terrible. I work around food all day. It was just so hard. Then, I got it, and I have been on this for 7 days faithfully. I can aready feel something. I am totally off of pop and I even went to a wedding Sat. and I only had roast beef and green beans, no cake. Yeah!!!! I am still having trouble with low blood sugar, but eating protein is the answer. I do not have the aches, and my headaches are better. They were an everyday accurance. I do believe that it will only get better the longer I am on the BTD diet!!!!! I am commited completely. Good-Luck to you

I started feeling the benefits - noticeably less pains and gut cramps - in 24 hours or less - seems ridiculous, but true.
dragonsgold, I had much the same allergy response, and take nothing since then for pollen. Went thru my 2nd spring listening to everyone in the office sneezing & hacking, & only joined them when I got into wheat stuff & dairy...goes away on its own shortly after returning to compliance!
Valerie and court, I think you're having typical O reactions to finding the BTD life!

welcome, anne of julie! when you stop eating avoids, it is possible to feel it right away.....!
Lisalea, you may be detoxing....the taste in your mouth makes me remember a time when I had to detox a heavy metal overload.....(I was teaching jewelry)...try chlorella, if its ok for your bloodtype....


Would be interested in hearing more about your jewelry-teaching experience and how that related to your symptoms.

One change that I noticed almost immediately is that I don't get infections from simple scrataches ie. paper cuts or insect bites that I scratch so hard that I break skin.  I had a big problem with infections before I started this way of eating and now this problem seems to be gone.  I've lost a few pounds (without trying), I eat more than ever but I do eat mostly the beneficial foods for my blood type.  I feel great & am very satisfied with the results.

One thing I noticed within 24 hours was that I stopped passing gas. I am sure it was caused by wheat intake. It had become a bit embarrassing at times.

i started BTD at the beginning of july, weighing about 135-140, i dont remember exaclty. i now weigh 140... but i have been trying to lose weight and have been exercising. however, as a young adult i do party and when i do i drink and i think that messes up my cycle of being. also, as it has been summer holidays my schedule has been completely off and i know that b;s need balance in their schedules and a organized pattern so that might be something too. i hope i can lose more weight when school starts and i a follow more steady schedule. for me, my skin is a lot less greasy (less pimples too!!!) i feel like i am alot happier, sooooo much more energy, no more constipation, no more bloating, no more headaches or tiredness from eating!! it truly works. i just want to know if anyone else has experienced a plateau in their weight loss... will it stop or will it continue later?


sorry i meant to say i weigh 130 now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1(10 pounds down)

It is dependent on an individual's current state of health before embarking on this lifestyle.

It may be immediate or it may take a few months for each person.  The rewards reaped from this lifestyle continually occur as they progress with this way of eating.

I have been on the O-Diet for about 2 weeks now, I think. My head feels fantastic, clear and razorsharp. I also feel happy - which is difficult for my friends to understand because I am still off work due to back pain and sciatica. The pain-level has decreased from 9 to 7 at night and I walk only like a 85 year old as opposed to a 105 year old (am 51). I am still in the process of fine-tuning and anticipate my back pain/sciatica to get better with the diet, some physical therapy and some exploring of emotional issues. Curious

Brand new to BTD, just 1 week,  but loving it already.  I feel like I have more stamina.  Have lost 2 lbs.

But I wanted to tell you about my 17 year old daughter.  The warts on her hands are going away.  This is amazing!  She's been to the doctor three times in the last three months and had them frozen.  Didn't go away.  But we start on this way of eating and they are disappearing.  She is thrilled.

I've been on the BTD for 4 mos now and haven't had more energy since I was a pre-teenager (I'm 38 ).  It's also been a miracle for me in the "regularity" department.  Quite an education in how to choose to consume nutrient rich foods over "dead" ones, too.  I grew up in the US eating meat & potatoes, OJ cereal & milk for b-fast and when I gave up all these foods I expected to crave them, as I've had insane cravings for "bad foods" on all other diets I'd ever tried.  I haven't craved ANY of my avoids even once, and on the rare occasion I do eat an avoid I find it doesn't taste as good as I remember.  Anybody else experience this?

Hi laureliai19,
I usually don't accept avoid. Only when I am guest in someone else home for a meal I refuse to have my  guests desperated to give me something to eat. Sometime living in Italy it is so odd to go without any wheat and tomatoes (bread, pasta and pizza are everywhere every day and I am also celiac). I repent all the avoids I have but I don't feel terrible symptoms. I do not dare to have two avoids in a day and my compliance is 99 % at home, but at the restaurant is difficult and as a guest in private houses also of relatives is worst.

Hi Ma Giovanna....I gotta give you credit, avoiding pasta & tomato sauce living in Italy!  I successfully avoid the avoids 90% of the time, but I'm not celiac either. I find when I haven't eaten anything from the nightshade family (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers & eggplant) in more than a week and then I eat one of them, I get tiny shooting pains in my wrists & fingers about 2 hours later. I never was a big meat eater to begin with but BTD has helped me a lot with my vegetarian food choices, not to mention dumping pork & red meat for good! I really wish the benefits of this diet were more commonly known in my country instead of considered some kind of restrictive "alternative lifestyle".  Isn't NOT knowing what you're eating that's making you & your family sick & fat more restrictive?  I don't feel deprived at all, just VERY healthy, and it sounds like you feel the same!

Had a high school biology class and I thought I was a B for many years.  I had my annual thyroid test last month and said "while your at it, tell me what type I am."  Turns out I'm an O and been so screwed up.  I haven't tried chicken yet but I'll get there.  I'm beginning to wonder if it wasn't the breading that wasn't causing me the gastric problems.  I've gone off of dairy and onto soy milk and oat stuff for breakfast and I'm feeling so much better.  All summer my ears were full of fluid, now I don't have ear problems.  I'm really hoping to see how many ear/sinus infections I don't catch this winter.  I spent a week in Tulsa last month as well (Before I knew what type I was).  Barely touched wheat and dairy the week I was there and lost 4 pounds.  I haven't lost anything since, it's really hard when you live with someone who isn't interested in the type diet.  I don't know what type he is, neither does he but judging by what he likes to eat, he's either an A or AB.  I've been trying to buy groceries that are compatable with both of us but I haven't gone through the A or AB list enough to have it memorized yet.  I haven't need the caffeine as much either which means I only splurge on a cola once a week compared to the daily habit I'd had before.  Now when I forget to take my thyroid (slightly hypo), I don't feel sluggish like I did.  I'm thinking if I remembered more often I might loose the pounds.  The bloating is gone.  I can put on clean pair of jeans and not have to suck my gut in.  It's great!  My Co-workers are noticing too. , my nails are growing faster, I'm hungry all the time, I could go on but it's late.

So glad I've finally got this thing figured out!

I had a funny thing happen today that I had forgotten happens when I am being compliant.

I was starving. Nothing I ate seemed to satisfy me, even though it was all on the diet. (No avoids) Water helped, but nothing else seemed to, and it wasn't enough. (Actually come to think of it this has been happening for days.) I was SO hungry and still couldn't get satisfied.

Now I'm a big girl, so this was really disconcerting as I don't want my image to be that I'm ALWAYS eating. Which to this point I guess I have been. Part of why I am here. To figure why I can't seem to stop.

Finally I sat down to my lunch at work where I had packed a sweet potato, CR4YT meatloaf, and spinach. I ate the spinach and then the meatloaf and couldn't eat the potato. And they were the tiniest portions. I am a woman who can EAT and in large quantities, and about 1/2 c of spinach and as much of meatloaf had me really satisfied for the first time in ages.  It finally dawned on me what ya'll have been saying about eating bennies.  My body is screaming for them. I was eating neutrals, but my body wanted the very BEST!

That was a cool moment .

I noticed a change within 24 hours! Cutting out all powdered sweeteners really convinced me that there was something to this diet, because my mood went from depressed and anxious to happy and calm. And you know what? I don't really even miss sweeteners as much as I did, and it's been less than 2 weeks. I still shake a little sometimes after I've eaten -- but I think that's the remainder of my sugar addiction fading away.

Eating animal protein at every meal also has really helped immensely. I ate only a little protein this morning, mostly fruit, and man did I feel it 2 hours later at work. My friend offered the only source of protein she had -- a McDonald's breakfast sandwich. Understandably, I ate it, but that only made me feel worse emotionally, although physically I was a little better. McDonald's puts sugar in everything. After eating a healthy lunch, however, I was back to my new "normal" -- a good place to be!
