Quoted from claymesserI have just finished first 2 weeks on the BTD, I am amazed at the results thus far. I have lost 5- lbs. and have cut my diabetes meds in half, only taking 1 4mg Avandaryl a day and my Highest blood sugar reading in the last 5 days has been 109(dance). And did I mention I no longer need Zelnorm any more either ( what a relief that is ) and that's all we'll say about that ;D
Quoted from claymesserI'm still experiencing some indigestion and a neusance 3 or 4 hic-cups after meals which I,ve always had and thought would go away by now but hasn't. Maybe later. I think I'm having gluton withdrawel. Does your body miss gluton like it does caffene ???
Quoted from EdnaThat is awesome, and welcome to the BTD support and info forums, Clay!
Another O in the house, YESSSSSSSSS! We're taking over!

Thanks Peppermint, I'm still geting a kick out of my wife, Diann, a type A, calling me a typo.
Quoted from firstname.lastname@example.orgWelcome to the BTD and Board, clay!!! And won't your Dr be surprised to hear it was just changing to the BTD that made the difference!!
It's great to have you aboard!! Sandy O
Quoted from ironwood55Your digestive system will probably continue to change for months to come as it heals and adjust to your new diet. Just be patient.
To help you with withdrawing from wheat I suggest you eat more red meat, particularly for breakfast.

wow super results, congratulations for that and thanks for sharing :D and welcome on board ;D
Quoted from Mare_eoClay, It's good to hear you're having such great success! I, too, am relatively new to the BTD (and a past Atkins dieter) and think it's the greatest! Be sure to keep us posted on your progress and let us know what the new Dr. has to say about your results. Stay safe out on the road!
Quoted from accidental chef(clap), excellent news! I wish I could convince my 76 yr old MIL, an O to do the BTD...but she doesnt have enough faith to make the great leap! I havent given up on her though(pray)...
Quoted from Brighid45Hi Claydaddy, nice to meet you. :) Another 'typo' here!
In my experience, it takes a while for your body to adjust to the good foods you're eating now. When I started the BTD, I had problems with heartburn, constipation, headaches, tiredness and mood swings for about 4-6 weeks. Gradually these symptoms faded away and were replaced with increasing energy, freedom from pain and fatigue, and a complete change in food likes and dislikes.
Welcome to the board! I look forward to your posts. :)
Quoted TextI think typo's are special don't you!
Quoted TextI have been dragging my wagon this first week and was wondering why. Been right the opposit on the constapation though.

Yah, same here. We are just hitting our 2 month point and it seems to be settling down a bit. I blamed it on the bad bacteria doing a "We're going down fighting" stand. They are not like the musinex guy who just packs up and leave ;) They seem to wage war to the end and even past (die off symptoms) As the intestinal flora levels out, so should this.
The energy has been a bit slower for me. I do have more consecutive good days, and they are much better than they had been in years. My down days are still down, but since there are fewer of them I'll take it :D
So glad to have you on board, claydaddy (aka Gheeckie TypO) ;)

Quoted from claymesserGheeckie TypO !! Huh!! I resemble that!
Speaking about the energy level, that has been a concern of mine. I automaticly think I must be eating something off the chart, but I think you're right, it's the "we're going down fighting" thingy because we're eating right.
