Well, it's official:  After six months on the BTD, my dad's down to his high school weight, and he says he feels better than he has in a long, long time.

When I was growing up, he was an air traffic controller, and he had the all-too-common nervous breakdown after 20 years.  He gained all sorts of weight, got depressed and anxious and, of course, doctors put him on all sorts of mood-altering chemicals to "stabilize" his mood.

And, of course, he gained weight.  A lot of it.  At one point he was up to about 230 pounds and looking terrible.  He was even pre-diabetic.

Now, after over half a year on the BTD, he's doing better than ever.

Best regards Maria Giovanna

Great news, Ron, both for your father and for yourself too!  

I imagine you  have had a lot of influence on his willingness to try the BTD?

Well, actually, my father's one of those traditional Italian meathead (TIM) types who only listens to other meathead types, and whatever his wife or some female orders him to do.  

As I'm neither a TIM or a female, he doesn't listen to me.  In his eyes, I'm a naive egghead.  But my mother listens, and so I have her tell him to do something, and that always works.  

Anyhow, apparently now she tells me that he confides in her that "my" dietary pushing is the reason for his improvement (he knows it's my idea) but, in the usual manner, I have to hear it from her.

Anyone wanna buy a family... cheap?

Way to go Ron-O-Non... and a little dance.   Be proud of yourself for helping with your families health no matter which way it was sunk in.  At least, yours is listening.

Ron, is your dad a type O also?  I am happy for you!  I live on the other side of the country from my folks, but diet/food is something that I can not even influence with them.  They are so set in their ways, Dad compulsively overeats, a type A, probably celiac....mom is type O, not in too bad shape for one who avoids mds....but Dad is diabetic, lost eyesight to macular degeneration, etc.  He and my brother with mental disabilities like to get fast food whenever they can.  It's a NJ horror story....last time I was there, there's fast food on every corner.  And pizza galore....maybe that's why I moved so far away.  But they are my family and I miss them.
