Hello!

I was introduced to BTD a few days ago and am very hopeful.  I've ordered the book and have been reading about it online.  Seems the top avoids for my blood type typically make up about 80% of my food intake.  I am a 44 year old female with well over 100 pounds to lose.  What advice can you give me?  Would love to connect with another type B who has lost a significant amount of weight.  Thanks!

Besides eating the right foods, you need to exercise and pay attention to serving sizes when you need to lose weight. You can get healthy just by changing your food choices, but you're unlikely to lose weight when you're eating too much- or if you're eating too little.

You don't need to worry overly much about portion sizes for the first few days, as your body adjusts to the new foods. But after the first week, you'll need to be careful not to over-eat. It's also important to eat enough- sometimes dieters screw up their metabolisms by eating too little, and that can inhibit weight loss as well. The key is to eat "just enough" total food, and to focus on foods that are high in nutrient density.

I've never had to lose that much weight.
But I've gone on a few weight loss diets in my lifetime, using two of them -successfully- in conjunction with the BTD.
The two were:
- The 35 Plus Diet for Women, by Jean P. Spodnick
This is a three-phase diet: Induction, Weight Loss, and Maintenance. The induction is no longer than two weeks: You pee away your excess water. The weight loss phase works because it's high protein and low starch, but you're basically deprived no "food group", except dairy fat - it's all low-fat. I tended to lose, oh, 25-30 lbs. on this one, over the course of about 3 mos.
It's a diet that particularly helps you re-orient to Protein, if you'd been veering too heavy on the starches. It also had me eating breakfast every day, which is otherwise not my habit...

- Ayurveda. This was not "meant" as a weight loss diet for me, but the pounds just dropped off effortlessly!
I lost about 18 lbs (over about 2 mos.) that I hadn't intended to lose, but the food was just so yummy, and the whole lifestyle really enjoyable for me. I love Indian food, and I really just went all out for it, teaching myself, at the time, to prepare many Indian dishes.

I think it is s very individual thing what works for you.

I lost aprox 15 kg on btd when i went from a high starch , low fat  vegetarin diet to a higher saturated and monounsaturated fat B diet with some meat and fish
Then my weight loss stopped.

I decided to stop eating grains and juice most of the time
and added a  bit more fat to my diet and i lost another 10-15 kg without a problem
  Lately i have put a bit of weight on due to major stress and snacking / higher carb intake.

Overweight is not is not simple, there are a lt of different issues.
Stress,lack of sleep, hormonal issues, maybe bad gut bacterias, as well as the wrong foods and lack f exercise plays a role.
So t is so important to take t step by step.

If I should get starting again i would
Start making sure I sleep enough and at the right time
I would avoid stress
I would incorporate mild exercise, not a hard program but walking everyday, taking a swim, riding your bike etc
I would look at the B diet, maybe keep grains and sweet fruit as a weekend thing
I would avoid snacking, try to eat enough prtein and fat at meals so you dont need to eat often.
I would make sure to get enough vitamins, minerals and probiotics
