Hi Fellow Dieters,

I am 28 year old male weighing 130kg. I just quit smoking, almost 60 days.
I think its time for a healthier lifestyle; so tired of carrying that extra weight around, and its time to enjoy life, find my lady, and maybe have kids...


Hoping someone on this forum would be my mentor, and guide me through this diet.

I purchased everything:
Type B supplements
Shakes
Proberry
The 3 books
and Unibar

I also ordered the Gynotyping Kit, SWAMI express, and secretor kit... should have them in 2 weeks.

Where do I start?

Welcome SuperB! Love your nick btw
I see you're jumping all in
Usually people start with one of the book diets, and work their way from there. Since you've already ordered SWAMI you might want to have a look at er4yt and start by eliminating biggest avoids and making sure you stock up on bennies.
I wish you the best of luck on your journey, I assure you you've made the right choice! And this board is the best support  you could ever hope for

Starting with the SWAMI is wonderful!

The books give the you the background to understand some of the why's and how's. The SWAMI will be your personal diet rather than one or another book version.

It can be a bit like getting into a swimming pool. Some like to dive right in and others prefer to immerse themselves gradually.

Welcome! You will find more than one mentor here on these boards. Swami is wonderful. I'm an "all-or-nothing" type, so I dove right in. It was scary at first, I felt like there wasn't anything I could eat - so not true! After years of eating this way it is very easy.

Like RedLilac said, ask questions and they will be answered!

Following Lola's link and answering a few questions will provide you with a list of the major beneficial and avoid foods for you.  While waiting for the books, etc. to arrive, you can start cleaning your diet by following these guidelines.

You can read a little longer tutorial about the diet here as well:

Welcome, Welcome, SuperB!!    I love meeting people who are willing to really dive into this way of eating and living because they are giving themselves a fantastic chance to receive the highest benefits!  

It's great that you have already ordered the tests and the SWAMI.  Until you know your secretor status, just start eating from the type B food list - with the understanding that you'll need to be flexible and adjust that list as you get more and more information about yourself.  

Do your Secretor test as soon as you receive it, and send it off.  That is an important part of the picture and also helps you with working through your Genotype materials.

Meanwhile, you can start reading Dr. D's books.  ER4YT is the foundation that all this has evolved from.  It will give you a good overview of what this way of thinking is all about.  The book was sort of pre-secretor test.

LR4YT is the next level of eating for your blood type, and is the one that I consider the blood type guide book.  Especially since I am a non-secretor, I really appreciate the way he addresses those differences in food choices.  This book offers guidance in lifestyle, exercise and supplement choices.  It has more up to date food lists than ER4YT also.

You can safely work from that level while you familiarize yourself with what the Genotype diet is.  (more individualized)  Don't try and follow the BTD and the GTD at the same time.  It will be confusing and counter-productive.  They are different programs.

You're going to have lots of support here.  There are dozens of aunties and uncles who love to participate in mentoring.    The more you post about your adventures and questions, the more input we can give you.  

Fasten your seat belt and enjoy the ride!

Congrats on quitting smoking!!!

With all the books, supplements, etc, it sounds like you've set yourself up with a well-stocked BTD arsenal.  Plenty have walked the path before you and are here and willing to share with they have learned so don't hesitate to ask questions.  Or you can always do a search of previous posts to help find what you're looking for.  Best of luck

welcome and good luck..


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!

Hi Everyone,

So sorry   I haven't been here for a long time. Thank you all for your responses.
On the bright side, I think I made new friends here. I am really happy for all the encouragement.

Its been 7 Month since I had my last Cigarette  YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY  

Been having sleep issues from Apnea. So went through some tests. The Doctor recommends I wear oxygen mask while sleeping        So, its time to make room for my lungs, lose the fat, and get in shape.

Anyway, I stopped eating chicken and corn (and all the avoids). I need to lose the extra weight, otherwise this would be all for nothing. Please support me on my journey.

I finished reading the first book and I am starting “REALLY” the dieting today.

Test Results:
- I am B+, Secretor, Gatherer (I may have messed up in filling SWAMI correctly)

My typical eating schedule:

9:00 am (breakfast)
1:00 pm (Lunch)
7:00 pm (Dinner)
(my dinner is only one serving BTD Shake with milk/banana or Papaya)

I am having problem with figuring out which vitamins to take and on what time. I have so many which makes me confused… will feel sorry if they go bad too. See the list below. And please recommend by matching the vitamins to the eating schedule above. Most of the vitamins recommend 2-3 times daily, but I only intend to take them once daily (I prefer to have the rest of the nutrition from fresh fruits and vegetables).

The list:
Polyvite B (multivitamin formula) – can be taken with food
Phytocal B (sea-based mineral formula) – can be taken with food
Polyflora B (probiotic formula) – taken away from food
Live Cell B/AB (sprouted foods complex) – taken away from food
Nitricycle - Does not say with food or without
Deflect B (lectin-blocking formula) (will take only on a cheat day)

Please Help me

Phytocal B (sea-based mineral formula) – can be taken with food
Polyflora B (probiotic formula) – taken away from food
Live Cell B/AB (sprouted foods complex) – taken away from food
Nitricycle - Does not say with food or without
Deflect B (lectin-blocking formula) (will take only on a cheat day)



I can attest to taking a lot of supps lately, too, and I take some of these.

First off, my tummy doesn't like taking multi vits on an empty stomach, so I take them with breakfast (if I don't do that at the beginning of my day, I "forget" at subsequent meals).

Deflect and Polyflora, I take those right before bed, on an empty stomach. Deflect, taken on an empty stomach, will affect lectins ingested in the past, whereas Deflect taken with food will affect lectins eaten currently. Make sense?

I might also take the Live Cell right before bed (since I know my stomach will be empty, as I make a best effort to stop eating by 7:30pm, and go to bed by 10:30p), but make sure that it plays well with the Polyflora...

Hope this helps.



And a big for quitting smoking! Quitting is not for sissies! It took me three times to finally kick the nasty habit.



It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Thank you Lola and Drea.

I am worried about the drug interactions. I just wish a specialist answers those questions here. I did take the multivitamins and minerals together.

The other 4 seem like they should be recommended by a specialist.

I will take another look at SWAMI soon. I think mostly the parts I made mistakes are the finger prints, measurements, and teeth.

Congrats on being smoke-free!

As a Gatherer, you need to make sure you're eating enough food, or your body will go into "starvation mode" and hang onto that excess weight. It's a delicate balance- too much food and you'll fail to lose and possibly even gain weight, but too little  food and you'll plateau. What you need to do is eat "just the right amount" of food, which isn't always easy.

I'm worried that your dinner may not be large enough to sustain you and support weight loss- but since you didn't post the rest of your meals, I could be off-base here. If you're eating enough at breakfast and lunch, then the small dinner may be fine.

Also, are you exercising? I've found that the weight will NOT come off if I'm sedentary. Even a small amount of walking daily gets the scale moving down, and I expect that I'll need to exercise even more as I get closer to goal.

You might start running low on energy with the 3 meal a day routine.  In-between meals I may eat rice cake, nuts, Cassava chips, fruit, frozen yogurt or carrots.  With the chips, yogurt & nuts I’m careful to only have 1 serving.  It depends on my activity level how much and what in-between meal snacking I do.  You have to balance your activity level with your food level.  Exercise is a must to lose weight and tighten up the skin that will be sagging if you lose too fast.  Slow and steady is the best way to eventually reach your goal and keep the weight there.

Hi,

I'm 130 kg

Typical day is about (1500 calories)

Breakfast: 2 eggs with parsley
Lunch: stir-fry with mutton or turkey breast
Dinner: Banana shake with protein and milk

No More Sodas (high fructose corn syrup), I drink herbals, chamomile, coffee, etc no sugar. Only 2-3 packets of sweetener per day.

I know my body requires more calories, but I find it hard to snack on something when I have to take the supplements which require an empty stomach. So I am spreading my supplements throughout the day cause I am worried about drug interactions if taken together.



I will start exercising next week, I will have to bring up the calories up to (1800) or so I guess. So to the above food sample, I will add something like cottage cheese with pineapple to breakfast, and 2 bananas for the shake with more milk rather than mix in water.

I am no expert, but this what I came up with so far, and your input is valuable.

What can I use as a food/sauce thickener that is suitable for type B?

And for the stir-fry, is there any substitute for oyster & teriyaki sauce? Since soy is an avoid, I love soy

These are all nutritional supplements, made from food products, etc.  There should be no "drug interactions", as these are not drugs, and are designed to be easy on the system.

Any compliant flour or starch...  Check for compliance on your plan and availability in your area - arrowroot, rice, millet, amaranth, even grinding compliant legumes into flour would work as long as the flavor doesn't interfere with the dish...

As ABJoe said, those supplements are not drugs.  In general, do what works for you.  I take vitamins and minerals with food.  Everything else, I just take between meals (This includes all herbs, Nitricycle, Deflect, etc. Polyflora just before bed).  That works well for me because I don't snack between meals.  That also encourages me to eat enough volume during each meal so that it sustains me until the next meal.  So I eat Two small and two large meals per day.

I didn't see mention of vegetables in your sample meal menu.  Are you eating veggies?
