Wow!!!! Wow!!! That is all I can say. I am completely speachless after reading the posts above. I was sitting at my desk with grapes in my drawer when racing crazy thoughts of cheating, cheating and I went into the kitchen where I work and I was going to eat that cake with the yummy frosting, but I looked at it and said no go read some testimonials so I walked into the bathroom and talked to myself and went back to my desk and read all of the above posts. OMGosh!!!! Thank-You! Thank-You, Thank-You! Wow! I am going to go rinse off my grapes and I will make it through this spell. I will be honest, I am struggling with every moment. I am going to re-read all of the above posts again. I love that poem NHG and your wisdom Peppermint Twist and Thanks Victoria, I am happy to be back. I need all of you guys. I flunked out on Monday and Tuesday, but so far today I am good. My daughter joined the Navy and she will ship out next June 2011, Her graduation ceremony is in August and I want to look so nice for her and myself for this event. I am a 100lbs over weight. I am going to print the poem and keep it on my refrigerator. Puppy and I are walking tonight. I am going to make spaghetti using glutein free noodles, organic sauce and I will make it today. I am not giving up. Thank-You so much. I am sooooo happy I came and read.

Hi Valerie,

I'm really new to this. I am doing a degree in Naturopathy, and the unit I've been doing this semester is Food as Medicine. It's a real eye opener and this week, the ER4YT diet was mentioned. I looked at this diet many years ago and didn't do it because it would eliminate many of my favourite foods. However, I just bought the GenoType Diet book and it's fantastic. It's so interesting and working out where you fit is fascinating. I think I've worked mine out correctly (thinking of buying the software to check). I think I'm a Gatherer. I'm a type A and am about to work out what I can eat and how to cook/prepare it etc. I'm getting married in April and have just learned that my fiance's visa is about to be approved (he's Canadian) so the wedding plans have now gone from being on pause, to full steam ahead.

I've read every post on this thread and I agree with the others, you're a very brave woman. One suggestion I have for you that works for me (most of the time), is if you feel like junk or something that's on your avoid list, if sitting and thinking about it doesn't work, try this technique.... Think to yourself, I'll have that when I've done this... and then go and do something like weed the garden, go for a long walk, wash the dog (or wash the cat if you really want to live dangerously    ).... Also, make sure you drink plenty of water too. The whole point of this is that by the time you've finished whatever you decided to do, more often than not, you've either forgotten about it or you just don't want it anymore. If you finish and you do still want it, try having some protein and drinking water and that should help too. Don't get discouraged Valerie, your strength will win out over any bad food choices. You inspire us all......

Valeria... welcome and congrats.. for progress.. For me doing the will strength test does not work, but I am good at substituting.. like I really only want to feel I belong .. so I eat a small bit.. not the whole cake not he whole slice not even all the cake, maybe just some frosting.. offices are hard..  they tempt you every which way.. I have dark choc 85 % and eat a fingernail size.. that is enough to get rid of cravings, social eating and the like,, I never get so far as to be hungry, I eat to often, but my portions of food are 95% Beneficials so even if I eat more of them that is no SIN.. I am doing it to stay compliant.  ON the occasion when there is other food I try and seldom succeed to stay away.. but still I try to eat the jelly without the bread, or the meat spaghetti sauce without spaghetti, and I eat the butter rather than dry pretzels, so I cheat but not nearly like others who eat whole candy bars, loafs of bread, or other such foods..I cut thin slices of a bagel the other way so a few slices with food on them feels like many, I hide to choc in a bag or high up so I don't see it.. and I keep prunes (cut in small slices)or other things in the freezer, anything not to see it all day.  BUT what seems to work really well is pumpkin seeds.. a few and I am fine, walnuts well I ate them by the pound as did I with all allowed foods for years and still lost weight.. for what is Beneficial.. I am allowed..  then there are no real (meat) restrictions for me, all just to never let me be hungry!! -- so many ways to make it and you will to.. good luck!!!


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Samantha,
I don't want to burst your bubble, but a Blood Type A person can not be a Gatherer.  Using the Advanced Tables in the back of the GTD book are the most accurate, except for SWAMI...

Let us know if we can help with determining your type...

Bummer I was wondering about that when I read the full descriptions of the genotypes. I knew that Gatherer was mostly O's and some B's but when I did all my measurements, it came up with Gatherer and it sounded so much like me. Now when I look in the back of the book, it comes up with either Teacher or Explorer (don't know my secretor status). I think I'm going to buy the SWAMI (is it downloadable or do you have to wait to get it in the mail?). Thanks for the help guys. Will update you soon. It's still fascinating.

Okey dokey, I have gone back to the book a third time, and this time I think I have it. I'm a Warrior. I'm A+ and don't know my secretor status but secretor or non secretor, it still says Warrior!!! YAY. Thanks for your help Lola and ABJoe... I've also ordered my SWAMI. I ordered it from the US site as the AUS/NZ site was saying it was $95.15 whereas, counting for exchange rates, ordering it from the US site cost me $76.98. If it means I wait a week longer to actually get it, then that's fine.

Hope everyone's having a fantastic weekend. It's Monday for me now (just - 12.04am) and I have to be at work by 7am so I'm off to bed....

confirm that about ordering swami from the US for 77

I think you still need to pay the shipping costs, and your order might be sent to the NZ distributor, anyways.

think that s the way it works

Warrior is significantly different than Gatherer, but I think you'll be healthier following it.     ..  Much success!

There are probably import rules and possibly taxes as well as long distance shipping charges that make the NZ cost of the products more...  Please don't be too disappointed if you get an e-mail informing you that you'll need to pay more than the US price.  Your health will still be worth it!

There seem to be some similarities between Gatherer and Warrior in the tendency to hold weight, especially entering into mid-life (for warriors).

I went to the Dr. and I weigh 232lbs. I was very relieved that I had not gained back to 255lbs where I started. I am still on this roller coaster ride of eating good and then going down hill. Im not beating myself up too much. I start out really strong in the morning and then become weaker and weaker before the day ends. That is a good idea Goldie about eating just a tiny bit of something that is not a good choice, but to be really honest, I can not stop at that. I justify it very well. I am sitting here taking really big breathes, cause I have come to the point that I have to do something and I am disgusted with myself with the strength. My goodness it is food! Why does it have to be sooo hard. I was reading the beginning posts when I started and I am being hard on myself. It has been three years and I could say back then, I did not know better, but I can not say that now. I feel absolutely terrible today. I know if I can stick to this for three days, I will feel so much better. I want to feel the way I did before when I was following the BTD diet so bad. It is all about change and it is so hard. Thanks for all of the words of incouragement. I just want to go to bed. I apologize for being so down. I will start again tomorrow.

Sorry that you feel bad.  

I couldn't eat just a bit of the avoid either...  It is like the alcoholic that has to avoid alcohol totally or can't stop.  

I hope you find enough balance to be able to control your cravings.

I'll agree with that Cristina. Gina was wonderful. My SWAMI is on it's way. She sent it yesterday so hopefully I'll have it soon. I can't wait.

That is a good idea Goldie about eating just a tiny bit of something that is not a good choice, but to be really honest, I can not stop at that.
That approach doesn't work for me either. I do much better with " I can't have that at all; I'll eat something entirely different." I sometimes go overboard with portion sizes and frequencies,  but I don't eat the "poison foods" at all.

That "eat just a small portion" works well for treats: desserts baked with rice flour and sugar or agave; all neutral ingredients but I know it's not healthy to eat too much. I can easily limit myself to one small piece of cake after a large holiday meal. I have a harder time if I eat the cake when I'm genuinely hungry.

Avoids need to be totally avoided, for me anyway. I've also found that eating too many carbs early in the day leads to carby cravings all day long.Cooked veggies mixed with protein are fine, as is a little bit of juice (1oz) in a large mug of green tea, and the first thing I drink each morning is yerba mate with 1 tsp of blackstrap molasses and aobut an ounce of rice milk.   But if I start the day with a portion of grains or sweets (leftover cake made  from compliant ingredients, for example) then I'm tired and "snacky" all day.

If you're having a lot of problems with carb cravings, take a look at what you're eating at breakfast and lunch. You may be able to eliminate a lot of cravings by cutting your AM carbs and saving grains for dinnertime.

Well, I did not start tomorrow. I decided to have a pity party for a while and feel bad a little longer, but I am better today. I know what I need to do and it is just doing it. I walked this morning which is a good start and I will try to be strong. Wish me luck, I will need it. Thanks everyone for all the support!

It's always great when someone starts doing what is good for themselves...  I wish you all the good feelings you get from good decisions...  This is where your real power is!  Every time you pick something up to put it in your mouth, you make the decision for better or worse health.  Choose wisely!

I don't believe in "luck", except at the slot machines - and I know they are programmed to profit the house.

Wishing somebody "good luck" is basically a way of sending  positive energy. Somebody who "feels lucky" has more confidence that things will work out in a good way.

There definitely is luck in the world; I have no control over how fast the person in front of me is driving, or whether I'll make all the green lights, or if the store will be out of stock of an item I wanted.  But I don't need to let those things affect my moods.

Valeria: give yourself permission to ease into this diet. Do the best you can, and aim to be 95% compliant within a few weeks. It's OK if you eat "avoids" away from home, or if you use up the food already in the house and then replace it with compliant alternatives, or even if you continue eating foods that contain small amounts of avoids.

Once you're eating mostly beneficial and neutral foods, you can evaluate how much those "hidden avoids" are interfering with health, and then make more changes at that time if necessary. You do NOT need to do all of this at once, nor do you need to feel guilty if you aren't able to do so.

I agree with ruthie's approach to when to eat carbs.  Carbs early in the day can set you up for a days' worth of cravings.  Type O's thrive on a high protein/low carb breakfast, and saving the carbs for the evening meal when it has the effect of helping you relax and sleep.

I have had it! I woke this morning and felt worse than ever. I dragged myself out of bed and I could of cared less to take a shower and get ready for work which is an everyday event. I can not find anything to wear due to my weight gain. I think about calling in sick everyday, to do what, stay in bed?

I have been doing terrible with choices on food and I feel it. I ache everywhere, hurt when I touch my skin, My head hurts when I comb my hair, I am completely exhausted, I have no energy, migraine headaches, no motivation and everything is suffering because of it. Scary, I know. I am so hard on myself for not having enough will power, which makes me depressed. I am going down hill   and I have to do something. I know this program works. I felt wonderful and all of the above went away when I followed the E4YBT.
Today is the day for the life change!
It is almost 5:00pm and I feel ok. I usually do not make it through lunch. All goes down hill after lunch. I feel completely worthless the rest of the day at work and go home and fall on the couch. I am mad     and hopefully that will help guide me to success. I feel and sound like a drama queen, but this is heartwrenching. It completely comes down to how I feel about myself. When you feel terrible, you look terrible and then everything else follows. I am getting my hair cut after work so I do not go right home to an empty house and fall on the couch. One change at a time.   I can do it!

I have no food in the house that is not super food.. my treats are Pineapple in chunk size.. if it was in bigger slices I eat the whole slice this way I eat one chunk at a time.. so even 8 chunks only make up a slice.. then the same with prunes, I freeze then they don't freeze but they are out of site, and I eat one or two at a time and then I put it away out of site.

now 85% choc I have in the top shelve.. and a fingernail size helps when I have the I want something..

but tree times a day or more I eat FOOD 2 eggs for breakfast.. I know to many but I cant figure out what else to eat.

for lunch no restrictions on meat and if that makes it way more then is suggested.. so be it -I lost the most when I ate more rather then less-- now I am trying to keep it at 3-4 oz and I am not loosing a inch.. age makes it worse. with the meat I eat some vegetables.. if I make a salad its a nice size, if on onion the a whole one - most likely to much sugar..  

dinner same..

so that is all .. some spices..and nuts..  and I still don't lose.. unless I walk around and that just is tough...

but I don't eat breads, no grains no starches, no dairy, no coffee, and doing that AT LEAST I don't gain weight.. but its a struggle..

when I go out, I have pumpkin soup - still allowed..

not allowed occasionally seldom on apple/ no skin, or on ice-cream cone.. or some slice of cheese, or or.. but mostly I am beneficials or super..

Valeria..... I still encourage you to keep up your spirit.. keep losing keep walking if you can, or put your snacks down the steps so walking to it is farther away.. or I am out of suggestions as I am struggling.. but I do the best I know how, so I have no guilt.. going to bed as early as possible helps but I wake up ..

for me this diabetes cr.p is really a hefty bag to carry.. it leaves no fun in life.. other then If I found a place to go dancing..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!
