I am. Sorry, I didn't answer sooner but I don't get the computer away from the kids very often :)
I found I felt much better but didn't really lose weight (maybe a pound or two). I had to cut portion sizes too. Dr D'Adamo says himself that you can eat too much of anything .... and I did.
What type are you? I'm an A.

yeah, i'm A too. so far so good. i was trying atkins/sbd and they werent working, and now i know why. my beneficial protein is no red meat. well, that was all i was eating. so im sticking w/this. i really feel great. did you eat a lot of soy???

Is that a goat in your avatar??? I love goats, have 4!
I tried Atkins too. I lost a few pounds quickly but gained it back.
Actually, I've tried almost everything :) ER4YT while counting calories and walking is the only thing that has worked this well.
Are you having any trouble areas? I'm really missing tomato sauces and cheeses. I need to hunt for some grains and some cheesy type things.

sorry I missed the part about soy and had to go back and edit. I have soy milk and burgers and I've tried hotdogs and cheese. I'm going to experiment more with tofu and textured vegetable protein.

i have a goat, gabby, who looks just like my photo. they are very sweet animals.
yes, i really miss cheese and tomato's- ketchup, sauce, in a salad.
i hope to try more soy stuff, as i dont think i am getting enough protein. any suggestions??? have you had the ezekial bread? not bad at all. just no butter. : ( well, p/b is ok. thanks for replying. thought more people would be interested.

I was discussing er4yt with the girls at work today and ended up running off about 8 copies of food lists of various "TYPES". Some are starting to suffer from arthritic type stuff, fatigue and everybody wants to lose a few pounds. It might catch on yet.

How's everyone doing?
I tried textured vegetable protein. I reconstituted it with chicken broth and it's pretty good. We've had tacos and wraps. Cheap and very versatile.

I've found a sub for tomato sauce! Cook carrots until they are soft and puree them with some onion and garlic. I put this on pasta and it was good. But on a pizza shell with low fat mozzarella, wonderful! I'm going to experiment with other spices and turkey sausage. I love pizza.
