Recently my DH announced that he wants me to "get rid" of any junk-type food that others have left on our boat.  He used to eat it just so it wouldn't go to waste. He's progressed & matured so much in his following of the GTD.  He says he's come so far and he doesn't want to spoil it now & reverse all the good that has come from his quite rigid compliance.   He's lost one full size in his trousers and has lost most of his middle-age protruding belly & love-handles...he looks so good.  I'm so proud of him.

Rex,
Congrats to your dh.  Can I ask is he the same genotype/bloodtype as you?  I am a hunter, but I am pretty sure my dh is a gatherer....just wondering....

That's great Rex!  He's an A right? He's following the A diet or the Genotype diet?

Mayf...My DH is an A and is following the GTD.

Debra...glad that "your Bill" is coming around...baby steps are still steps as long as they are moving in the right direction.  

paulam...no, my DH & I are not the same type...he's an A/Warrior; I'm an O/Hunter.  

IB...Kyan is adorible...forgot to mention that earlier.

Thanks to all who I've not addressed...I appreciate your appreciation.

Cheers to you and your sweetie, Rex!  Relationships even improve when the health of the individuals involved in the relationship improve!  

You have a right to be proud of him.  This is one of the most important things he can do.  I have been amazed again and again at how many different levels of transformation begin taking place when a person really adopts the genotype diet.  It's not at all only on a physical level.  Deeper self understanding begins to unfold, and that's a real sight to see.   ;D

Congratulations Rex!

My husband (a teacher) has come around too.  His father just had heart bypass surgery, and isn't out of the woods yet in his recovery, but so far so good.  That has been his impetus for eating healthier.  I think his dad's a warrior, though, so my husband's risk factors are a bit different.  Teachers have more cancer risks, warriors have more cardiovascular risks.

Even though he's a different type than me, it makes sticking to the diet so much easier for me... once he cut out junk and fluff from his diet there's so much more food we have in common.  I envy the cheese I give him, but it's a worthy trade off.  Now when I feed him, I feel like I'm really taking care of him, it's fun!

I have put it all our food values into excel and study it regularly, trying to focus on the superfoods we have in common, with a few of our individual superfoods thrown in on snacks or meals we eat separately.  I just realized he shouldn't have chicken, and it hasn't been all that long since I realized I'm an explorer who can, so I'm still figuring things out.  SWAMI will change more things, but I can't wait for it.

Victoria...I do see tht since my DH has begun to take the GTD as seriously as he does, we are more on the same wave length about a lot off things.  Last week, he had to spend a long day away on business after which he came home & proudly announced that Amtrak has hummis on their menu so he ordered some as part of his dinner.   He carries the NAP protein bars with him in case he needs a pick-me-up when he's away on a long day away from home.

Melissa...I do the same as you do in regards to planning for the two of us; I've listed the foods that my DH & I have in common which helps me stock my pantry & fridge.  I usually eat separately because I eat differently...I do the 5-6 small meals spread out during the day because I'm home all day & can do that...my DH works away all day so he eats the more traditional three meals a day.

Good to hear from you again. I was wondering about you. But then, I haven't been on as often, either!  My DH(AB) seems to be a warrior(mentally, emotionally, etc., not appearance-wise), but rarely eats fish. But I don't push him.  Another Greek-descended friend mentioned that b/c he is Mediterranean, he needs more iodine & should eat more fish. He may start doing that!  It pays to be really careful how you talk to your spouse. They feel more threatened by a family member than a friend or stranger.  It's good to see spouses here slowly adapt the diet. I see Ribbit's DH is getting more into it, too. Yay!!

Awesome!  Keeping bad foods out of the house and off the boat will help him a lot.  I know it helps me a great deal, although I don't have a boat. :)
