Dr. D’s comment:  “In reality, the largest single cause of death is 'lifestyle suicide.”  


I have never read this quote, but it is awesome.  I just have to re-post it!  I know several people, including myself sometimes I am sorry to say, who act like this.


Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.  Blessings, meribelle

Gosh you uprooted on old rant of mine.. doctors who don't care to learn and then denegrate their patients attempts at SELF improvements and thus curtail help with a good diet, when the patient needs it most.  Those and other 'professionals' shutt the door before they allow the courrage to try a new life style, since after all : patients can't go against their Docotrs advice! ..

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!

I fell off the wagon on Saturday evening for dinner. I only eat diamonds on the GTD and have done so about 99.95% of the time since I started. So Saturday evening, I was behind on schedule and did not feel like cooking. I ran over to the supermarket and got sushi (they have a pretty good selection) and had soy sauce, octopus, etc. ALL AVOIDS. Lo and behold - pain (muscle aches galore) and sleepiness! I ended up sleeping way too much but it was not worth it in the end. The sushi did not taste as good, either.

I tried to tell my friends the benefits of this diet. They think I am crazy and my messages on Facebook and their cell phone are SPAM. Only my family believes the benefit because they have seen my health issues get much better.

Thank God for this message board. At least I am able to voice my happiness and praise for the diet!

I don's spam my friends on facebook about BTD. I let it come out in normal conversation- sometimes I'll create a recipe, post it to typebase, then post the link to my recipe on FB. I mentioned the birthday cake was spelt and BTD compliant when I showed the pictures from a birthday party on FB.  It comes up in general nutrition chats on FB (which only include people who are interested in nutrition to begin with.) But I don't post links to BTD stuff on FB all that often, and i don't mention it when chatting about other thigns (like cute baby pictures.)

Well, my friends thought my private message was spam. I only sent messages to two friends because they kept complaining about allergies and getting sick all the time. Oh well. I did not send the message again after that.

My classmates are interested, though, since they see drastic changes in my health.

During a phone conversation with my daughter, who lives a couple thousand miles away, we started discussing gluten intolerance.  She wanted to know how to find out so I told her to check her fingerprints which she promptly did and go figure, she's got cracked fingerprints.

She picked my brain for ideas and promised she was really going to start taking care of herself.

A couple of months ago she posted on FB something about how a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup just hit the spot.  I replied, all that gluten, lactose and nightshades?  I'll pass.  She stopped speaking to me and ended up deleting her FB page after I private messaged her three times.  All saying I was sorry but was only trying to support her decision to live healthy.  Truthfulness has never been her strong suit.  I should have remembered that.


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

I am spending time wih a doctor oriented person and there is noway to convince her of anything .. it does not matter, she is she and I am me..

people like this are just themselves and no matter what we experience they come from a different place, thousands of miles between is just good enough..

if I am around such people I wish I was not, and no matter what my concerns might be, the others are not capable to have the kind of understanding neded to progress in their life....

to 'defend' them === I have issues with not being able to adhere to BTD as I must when under stress, so staying away is just best, such relationships are most often not worth the effort, and the stress to be under the feeling of wanting to keep up some valuable relationship only makes my own journey more dangerous for me.==== thus I think the others have the same need for distance as its just to stressful for everybody.

the hahaha moments come when after 40 years of don't eat eggs, now even the doctors  reverse their advice,.......life takes time..
