A woman at work e-mailed me the front page of e-diet newsletter.
The lead story was about the BTD.

People do hear me when I talk about the BTD.

Well, my thoughts:

1.  I don't like the title because no one's blood type makes them fat.  It is if they eat the wrong foods for that particular type (or too much food for any type) that they get fat.  The title sort of makes it sound like one or more types are more prone to being fat than others.  I dunno, I just didn't like the title, it doesn't capture the essence of the BTD and it does sort of create a possible misunderstanding.  But luckily, that is just the title, if one reads on...

2.  The article isn't bad.  Has a few things off, like that there are "no recipes".  There are plenty of recipes for those who want that type of support!  There are recipes in ER4YT, there is the entire book of CR4YT, there are the recipes in Typebase4, etc.  Sheesh, we got recipes out the wazoo here in BTD Land.  It also says there are no "meal plans", which is true in the important sense that one doesn't need to follow any sort of meal plans (yay!), yet they do exist (again, in the back of ER4YT) for those who want that kind of structure and guideline, at least at first.  But I can see what they mean by saying there are no meal plans--they mean that there are no REQUIRED meal plans and that is a good and important point.  But saying there are no recipes is not true at all.  There are tons of recipes out there!!!  Tons, I tell you.  I'm sure they again meant, there are no REQUIRED recipes to follow, but then why don't they say that?  Who writes these things and why don't they consult ME *lol*?

3.  All in all, though, it was a very positive and edifying-to-potential-newbies piece, and it is exciting to see such a piece front and center like that in a venue where it will get a lot of attention and get the word out to lots of potential new BTDers.  So, all in all:  yay!

Thanks Sandra the link is on my work e-mail.

I like to see possitive press even if it is not perfect.

Thanks for posting the article S_A. Would have to say that it is the most positive article I have yet seen in the mainstream media. Would agree with PT's analysis with the emphasis on point 3.

Went to check out a new Health Food store today and saw 3 of Dr. D's books featured on their book display. Nice to see the positive however it comes.
