I started with BTD 2 months ago and am about 1 month into my SWAMI's GTD.

The pores on my face are smaller and cleaner than ever.

I have lost a few pounds without any exercise (I need to get back on the bike!)

But the most amazing and dramatic thing for me has been the absence of cravings.  Even when I am hungry and non-compliant foods are wafting right in front of me, I have no desire for them.  In spite of coming from an Italian family and having to say no to tomatoes and wheat, I am enjoying my new food choices (spelt, buckwheat, brown rice, pestos, egg and ghee sauces for pasta) and don't feel deprived one bit.  I was known for having a sweet tooth - must have that bit of sugar after every meal.  Runs in the family.  Well, I'm free of that now too!

I'm feeling so good I forgot to pour myself a cup of coffee this morning!  I was contented enough with my eggs.  

I have also happily ventured into making my own wheat-free foods and dairy-free milks and really enjoy it.  I am truly eating to live instead of living to eat.

I do believe this Dr. D is onto something...  Many thanks!
