I noticed a change very quickly and then nothing for a few months after which I started to change again all for the good.  I think it will continue to be like this...I'll just keep improving the longer I remain as strictly compliant as I am now...which I intend to do.

Hi and welcome!

I felt improvement fairly quickly, too, even though I wasn't 100% compliant.

Before BTD, my biggest problem was that I'd fall into a stupor shortly after eating lunch (typically a turkey sandwich) at work.  When I switched to sliced roast beef with salad greens (no bread), I'd stay alert the entire day.

I also had extreme sugar cravings.  That went away once I cut down on carbs.

I also felt stronger, too.  But that might've been because I stopped taking Vytorin (a combination of Lipitor and Zetia for lowering cholesterol).  And I went on a course of supplements that includes much higher doses.  Although I do notice that if I eat wheat with dinner, my after-dinner gym work out suffers.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Same with me. I felt a change after 2 weeks, then nothing for the next 3 months. I hope I will feel another change soon.

I felt a change that was dramatic and fast when I started.  Within 3 days, it was really remarkable...reduction in pain/inflammation was the hugest thing I noticed.  Couldn't call it placebo either, cuz I really wasn't expecting it to work...and on the off chance it did, I figured I'd have ot plug away for at least a month. !  I've never looked back.

Hello, I am a newbie, I started last week on BTD, I tried it 3 yrs ago and I stopped. But now I am back again.

The impact/change is immediate, I was slowly weaning off coffee and pork but I decided to do the cold turkey because I was having acid reflux the whole night after eating pork dumplings for dinner. So far so good, I still slack a little since we eat out most of the time, but I have been trying to be good when I eat alone. My head is never clearer, my energy level is good, I am more active, getting myself into the gym to work out. But I have problem getting to sleep, I did see some thread about eating more carbs for dinner and more proteins during lunch, I will try that out next.

I wanted to say, I felt the change today. It is not about the food, it more of a lifestyle. I had to have coffee in the morning, but it is an avoid for Os. I realized on those days I hit the gym, I don't miss caffine at all, but yesterday, I did not go to the gym, I felt all funny all morning, like I needed a boost.

To test my theory, I jogged/walked 20 mins this morning and I did not need the coffee, my head is clear, my energy level is good. I packed my own lunch, stuck to the BTD diet of avoids, but occasionally still slip, ice-cream temptation are strong, but this morning I weigh myself, I lost 1kg. I am not overweight, I feel I am at my heaviest weight ever, using BMI measurements I am at my ideal weight, but I want to lose 3Kg if possible and I have 2kg more to go

No heaviest, this is the max weight I ever weigh. I had been underweight all my life and now, am at my "ideal" weight based on BMI, but I know I have light bone mass, so at my ideal weight I am slightly chubby. So am trying to shed/tone up and wanting to lose some weight. (I am sounding like a Hunter right?)
