beautiful babies!


Thanks!! Glad I finally got it fixed. I tried yours and Wulf's suggestions. Just couldn't wrap my head around them. Looked in my old threads til I found "How to Post a Picture" and tinkered w/ it until I got 'that'.  It may not be up to specs, but I did the best I could            If it's not, I"ll change it when notified.

Btw, my doctor just doesn't know what to make of the BTD. He always asks me what I'm eating when I go in for my annual checkup.


My doctor asked me this as well and seeing how much weight I had lost and how good the numbers were said to keep up what I was doing.  Didn't delve into it too much, but he did give me encouragement.  Also I came off the blood pressure medicine I was on.

Quoted from Rex
I can't figure out why it is that some people "get it" & others don't...I just know that I'm so glad that I was one of those who did.   I feel so much better...more energy & I look better too. It's a real confidence booster.  


I know exactly what you mean.

Personally I don't think it's all their fault.  Haven't we been raised to trust what the government agencies tell us?  We are supposed to trust the FDA - they are looking out for our best interest.

Food and Drugs should never be under the same authority.  It's a conflict of interest.

  • Why is high fructose corn syrup allowed in anything people consume?  
  • Let them chlorinate sugar and call it Splenda - they condone it.  Just think of all the new drugs they are going to need!!  
  • Why do they allow chicken farmers in the southern states to put chicken poop in lagoons for reprocessing back into chicken feed?  Did we not learn anything from mad cow disease?

I could go on, but I'm preaching to the choir.


It is what it is so I'm dealing with it.

Hi CybrtoothTigress and Lola, we need to speak aloud for cases as when  they allow chicken farmers in the southern states to put chicken poop in lagoons for reprocessing back into chicken feed. We must  learn it  from mad cow disease. That is a perfect reason for political and social activism ; the fair opportunuties, the environment pollution and the health of mankind !
best regards Maria Giovanna

I've only been on BTD for 2 weeks but I LOVE IT!! I find it quite easy. I gave up sugar a year ago and was already eating Ezeikel bread. I've been on a health quest for some time and felt I was eating healthy, (black beans, tomatoes, chicken, avocado's, 100% whole wheat) No wonder I couldn't lose weight. 2/3 of the foods I ate where wrong for me.
My stomach has shrunk and I feel better, more energy, already! I do not feel deprived at all.  I'm definitely going to be a lifer.

The reason many don't try it is maybe they have tried so many things, finally settled into a routine & don't have the energy to change again.  When I went to my old chiro, I could tell he didn't mind that I was on it, but surmised that he had learned so much about nutrition & had great habits. So, I think he was too tired or busy to add another paradigm to his consciousness.

Also, we all have priorities & go with what we like or what is important.  Like in my case, I just gave up on certain aspects of housekeeping--they are too stressful & repetetive & the results don't seem to be worth the effort.

The chiro also said that some felt worse on the BTD. He probably was talking about detox that many go thru. I have guessed him to be an AB or an O.  I don't know, but I think if he is an O & eats little meat & has tofu as he said, he will get worse as the years go on.  If he is an AB, maybe he has found out how to eat. His personality certainly is an enigma.

He knows a lot about certain things & I could recommend him for certain areas, but he just seemed to have a mental block about the BTD.  His substitute(the last time I was a patient) said the new practice he worked at had charts about the BTD & promoted it. He said he was an O, but wouldn't give up his cheddar chesse.  What a shame! That's one of the very worst things for an O.  But at least he knew about the diet.

Since I was active in La Leche for certain years, there seemed to be a mental block about moms who didn't breastfeed their kids not encouraging their own daughters to do it, even tho I'm sure they knew it was better than bottle feeding. Maybe they wanted to rationalize something they already did & couldn't change & didn't want to be labeled a bad parent.
Maybe the mindset against BTD is similar, altho one can change!
It's never too late. I didn't know about it when my kids were young, but I go on now.  Maybe it would have been chaotic with a 4-type family anyway!
My husband naturally likes many things for his type. My A son, unfortunately likes meat & cheese, but has a vegetarian girlfriend!!  However, she eats dairy. No blood type has that pattern.  If you can have dairy, you are a B or AB, which allows other things. This gal has a nice, calm personality so the dairy doesn't seem to bother her.(It can make folks grouchy!)
Enough rambling for now!!!!!
Happy BTDing everyone!

I gave up on certain aspects of housekeeping too . . . with two jobs, my left over energy is spent on shopping (for food), cooking (the food), washing dishes (from eating the food), laundry (no food there), and of course, some fun.  After that and a few other chores and obligations, cleaning is the last thing on my list!

I'm very tidy and very organized . . . just a little dusty.

I find that people have been schooled in the thought that  your blood type is confined to your veins. My friends at work laugh at me.. I am a nurse.
Once you get over the hurdle of believing that your gut is the center of your immune system not your blood it makes things alot easier.
   Also the word diet conjures up ideas of weight loss and not basic health and well being.
I wish we could lose that word but I think the publishers wouldn't let Peter do it on his first book so it is stuck.(correct me if I am wrong)
