28. I have gradually worked my way into this diet. Before I began, I was an overweight, fatigued vegetarian, and constantly coming down with various illnesses. After hearing and reading a bit about the diet, I began eating meats (particularly lean reds and fish), and modified my other eating habits according to the plan. Over the past year and one half (when I began modifying my diet), I have had no significant illnesses, I've lost weight, I have constant energy, and I have a better sense of well being. I have even felt a greater hormonal drive. My life has really taken a 360 degree turn since I began the diet.

Significance of the Belts

The Belt, Title, and Color System

The belt system is just an adaptation from the system of martial arts that Dr. D'Adamo practices. In our bulletin board community belt color and style signifies 'seniority' by virtue of the total number of posts that individual has contributed and the service to the community. Of course, 'quantity' of posts is no guarantee of 'quality', but many high volume posters are committed, knowledgeable and helpful individuals. The nomenclature is Korean. Light-hearted, but also not. Member's screen names are shown in the color of the titles below.
