Went to see my doctor Monday morning to get a medical release for an arthritis aquatics class and to discuss my hypertension medicine. My doctor was totally confused by the fact that my BP is 98/60 (even with meds it was 140/90 for years), bloodwork from the last visit in June was completely normal--great cholesterol and sugar, thyroid excellent, etc.--and I've lost 31 pounds since the last visit as well. He can't believe things have changed that much just with dietary changes, though he is pleased to know I'm eating lots of veggies and fish.

My doctor's a great guy, but he's just the physician I have to see to get my meds and check my progress. As far as I'm concerned Dr. D is my doctor, and he's given me back my life and my health.

Thanks, Dr. D'Adamo. Your wisdom and dedication to the truth has helped me more than I can say Looking forward to regaining more health and mobility as the weight slowly comes off and detox/cleansing continues via diet and exercise.

DID you do it all by BTD???

from now on take pictures and celebrate.. WOW..

exactly how what did you do???? I need to know.. I want to drop 10 more pounds and I am going to do it while on vacation so .. please spill the beans.. hahah I made a funny..    and you are O so it will work for me ..

by the way I have the same test results from my having dropped 20 plus pounds on HCG and SWAMI foods.. so I guess dropping the weight never to pick it up --- when that is possible, is the way to go..

HAD I KNOWN 30 years pre-menopause HOW to do it, I would never have KNOWN what I know now..  --- If I had known HOW, I would have stayed lower weight--- I never got fat without effort to prevent it---  .. BUT LEARNING is what this life is all about.. NOW we can KNOW.. and all the shoulds and all the finger pointing and all the good intentions are not worth a dime.. if you and I can not find a meal/ lifestyle plan You/I can live with..

I am soooooooooooooooo pleased for you and me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love my Doc.. he is a good listener.. he gives me the encouragement and proper 'tests' support, and he gave me the book the sugar connection when I first went to him years ago..

BUT YES !!!!!!  Dr D is MY DOC and he does not even know it Thanks Dr D..  


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!

Goldie: I'm doing it on the BTD Arthritis plan, with a little extra knowledge from reading up on the Gatherer Genotype, and lots of experimentation

Right now I'm eating about 3-5 cups of fresh or fresh-frozen vegetables every day, mostly greens and cruciferous veggies like broccoli, but also some root veggies like turnips; small amounts of very lean beef or lamb; turkey (staying away from chicken for now); and lots of fish. I have one egg a day, use homemade ghee along with olive or grapeseed oil, small amounts of beneficial nuts and seeds for snacking, plenty of spring water, and about a half ounce of the darkest chocolate I can get my hands on (Lindt 90% or Equal Exchange 71% bittersweet are current favorites). I eat a small banana every day but stay away from fruit in general except for an occasional homemade 'soda' made with Knudsen's Just Blueberry juice and Gerolsteiner, when I'm craving something fizzy to drink. I also make my own rooibos iced tea. No grains and little to no dairy, at least for now. Grains of all kinds are giving me terrible problems with retaining water, fatigue and mood swings. I do eat a small amount of brown basmati rice once a week, about a quarter cup's worth, but that's it. I think when my body's healed more I'll be able to bring at least quinoa and amaranth back into the picture, we'll see how it goes.  

It's a very lean way to eat, but it feels right. Eating homemade soup seems to be the best thing at the moment, I don't know why but it does.

I have no regrets in my life except one. I wish I'd found out about this diet sooner, because I'd probably still have a thyroid gland. Mine was removed in 1996 because it had grown so large it was squeezing my windpipe shut. If I'd known then what I know now, there would have been no surgery. But such is life.

That is fantastic, Brighid45!  I am really amazed at your blood pressure!  Even at my thinnest, the only thing that controls mine is exercise.  Diet and weight loss did not help at all, so you should be very grateful for that!!!  Keep up the good work

Yap...

skip the banana a day to one a week or a slice frozen here and there.. they are only needed every day by people on fluid release meds..

at least try that.. and see for your self..

Thanks all

Sue: he hasn't taken me off the BP meds yet, but he does want to scale back on the dosage in the next few months as more weight comes off. Eventually I'll be off them completely, can't wait for that day!

Victoria: the fibro isn't nearly as severe as it was. I still have flares if I'm not careful, especially if I don't get enough sleep. At this point it's hard to tell sometimes which symptoms are fibro and which are menopause. I have days when finding words can be incredibly difficult or concentration is impossible. I've learned it's better to not speak much or try to take on intricate or difficult tasks when that happens, and get as much rest as possible. I'm listening to my body now when it says it's tired and needs down time, and the results have been amazing.

This whole journey has been such a gift of healing and wisdom, and continues to be a blessing in so many ways, not the least of which is meeting you all here and receiving your support and kindness. Thanks

Back from the Y and my aquatics class. I weighed myself right after getting out of the pool just for fun and . . . 4 pounds down, mainly because I was wearing just a swimsuit, probably But there could be a pound or so really gone now at any rate. I'll check again next week and see how things are going.

First I urge you to post about these GREAT results/this great news, and then I neglect coming onto the board, for days on end, to see if you did--sorry!  I have to be very careful about getting onto the net from work anymore, and I've been really, really busy this week once I get home.  ANYWAY:  As I told you on the phone, I am so proud of you, Briggie!  I'm really, really impressed with all your great choices and hard work, too!

When people say there is no scientific "proof" for this diet, only anecdotal, I say, hey, if you are one of the anecdotes, it feels pretty scientific (i.e., REAL) from the inside out!  Who cares if anyone believes us, when you get right down to it?  Your blood pressure has normalized, you've lost 31 pounds (!), you are feeling good and not having many fibro episodes, I've lost 88 lbs, I'm feeling in balance, strong and healthy (although in SEVERE need of going to the chiro, but that is my own dang fault for not going for, like, a YEAR, but I digress!), so who cares if people say "Where's the proof?"  I say:  you're looking at 'er!

Okay, just read the rest of this thread and have two additional comments:

1.  WHAT?  You're down another 4 lbs, for a total of 35 lbs?  Wu HUUUUUUUUUUU!  

2.  Re:  "This whole journey has been such a gift of healing and wisdom, and continues to be a blessing in so many ways, not the least of which is meeting you all here and receiving your support and kindness."  So true, so true.  I've been reminded of myself this very week, which has been very stressful and busy.  My diet has kept me grounded, steady, in balance and strong through it.  And the soup you taught me to make has been KEY!  Off to go home and eat some now!  Yay!

I'm taking quercetin, nettle leaf and bromelain at the moment to help keep the reaction down, and it's working to some extent. I'll keep NAC in mind, thanks jaynee

Yeah, but you apparently were soaking wet!!! Congratulations, Brighid!! What a success story!!! I bet when you get off the BP med you will feel ten years younger. I did.
