Harry's right - this is definitely a diet that takes GREAT self-discipline. I, myself, have not been able to accomplish due to a LACK of that, although cutting out all pork from my diet was quite easy. I think if I had a chef to MAKE the food for me every day, I'd be more apt to follow the diet! But as it is, I have not been able to discipline myself enough to take the time and energy to "make" my food (making food to me is microwaving frozen veggies! I know, that's pathetic!). I find it easier to just go get a veggie plate at the local store, which is really of no help on this diet.
I have a mild case of Crohn's right now which is also probably why I'm not being as disciplined. However, I do believe in the idea behind this diet...that God gave us a cookbook right in the Bible and told us how to eat to be healthy. I feel certain there was no Crohn's Disease in biblical times.
Hey Harry - are you "religious" about the rest of the "diet" plan, too, that does NOT involve food? Like the praying, the Clenzology, the particular Probiotics...just curious!

Thank you so much!! This has been extremely helpful info. I have already told my husband we will try it. Everyone sounds like it does help and I am excited. My stomach is starting to get on my nerves. It is hard to be on predsnisone, but I feel like if I am on it then it should work for me. I'll have to probably call my doc.
Upto106- please email me that spreadsheet when you get a chance. That would help tremendously.
Thanks for your support. I can't wait to get the book and read it. I believe in the power of prayer too and I am hoping this is the answer to mine. I will keep you updated.
which probiotics and enzymes do you use?
Are you still making homemade yogurt?
