Quoted from Andrea AWsec





Imagine having a genotype baby.. Wow now that is exciting!

Sharon has a beautiful baby girl who was on the GTD in the womb.


My oldest now has her SWAMI and I'm hoping to get it for my next-oldest sometime in the next year or so. Neither of them are planning on having kids for quite a few years.  Imagine how healthy my grandchildren will be!

Eric- GTD as the sequel sounds like a perfect plan! I can hardly wait for your documentary to be there on the library shelf next to Supersize Me!!

Eric, I just started watching the trailer.  I'm disturbed that you would include a clip from the Book of Mormon musical, mocking the LDS church and its missionaries.  Your former affiliation with the church is irrelevant to the BTD/GTD, and making a mockery of any religion is entirely out of place in such a work.  Your experience with naturopathic medicine in Mexico doesn't require a mention of your missionary service as a context; all you need say is that you were doing service work there.

I hope you will consider removing this offensive bit of content.  I'd like to share your documentary with my friends, but I won't share it with anyone if it includes this segment.

Those on our side are equally offended by negative publicity about the Blood Type Diet, TJ.  But that doesn't mean we should ask the authors to remove their articles from the internet.

I think we should welcome criticism, scrutiny and publicity about any of our belief systems.  That's the only way they'll stand the trial of veracity.

TJ's criticism is something I didn't even notice when I watched the promo. But since TJ did bring it up, I do think it's a valid point. Do you want to risk offending potential customers/viewers/supporters? You certainly can't please everybody, and you're certainly GOING to upset those who oppose BTD (isn't that half the point of the documentary?) but it may be wise to put aside "non-food politics" in the interest of garnering as much support as possible. This may not be the platform to expose the truth about LDS; this is the platform for promoting BTD and individualized nutrition.

One has to choose one's message. What is your message and what diverts from it?

I have not seen the trailer and therefore have no opinion on what you did.

You both have very valid, reasonable points, and I do appreciate it.  I do feel justified, however, by the fact that I merely threw in the Broadway clip for a cultural reference, rather than for malevolence.  I.e., I did not go out of my way to insult the LDS faith.

By the same token, I don't think I need to go out of my way to guard everyone's feelings.  After all, the purpose of a documentary is to arouse conflict

I watched the video and enjoyed it. I did not find it offensive personally. I personally felt that he mentioned his religion because it was what started him off on this new journey. I feel confident that Eric will do well to represent the btd. He is very positive. Good luck Eric.

Well, TJ, I can almost assure you that the documentary itself will say nothing about religion.  But this was a promo video, about my life.  And religion was a huge part of my life.  Again, sorry to step on toes.

funn Dr. D published ER4YT so many Christians discounted just on the evolutionary ideas that he included.

Loads of people focused the first 3 pages of the book rather then the over 100 ( pages are not exact just to give a perspective).

The evolutionary theory part of Dr D's work is just that: theory. The hard science is in the "this is how our bodies work NOW" aspect of it all. The biochemistry of humans today is what it is, whether it's because we evolved this way or because this is the way G-d created us.

I suspect those individuals were looking for some excuse to discount the diet (and have to take responsibility for their own health) and used religion as an excuse.

Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

This clip is distracting from your point, not supportive of it.  The continuity of the current format suffers because of its insertion.  Now that it's been brought to your attention that it's offensive and detractive, it would be best to edit the promo video to remove it and repost a new version.

I watched the promo clip, impressed.  Are you planning to film locally in Salt Lake?  I lived there for a while though am not Mormon.  If so I request a few shots of the new City Creek mall if possible, as well as many outdoors shots such as the panoramic view.

If instead of, "I used to be a Mormon", I said, "I used to be a Mormon, but now I think Mormons are stupid and cultish", we might then have a legitimate concern.  I retain my position.

Thank you Sahara, and very good point Andrea.  Actually I'm considering Albuquerque as a new nesting spot, because it's supposed to be one of the best places to make movies in the country.  But no, the majority of the movie will be filmed outside of Idaho/Utah.

Challenging beliefs on what people should eat will offend enough people.  Why add something else that's offensive to some of your potential viewers, yet superfluous to the point you're ostensibly trying to make?  I think it's pretty clear what the right thing to do is.  I have nothing more to say on the point.
