So I have been having a mild flare and the AM has been the most difficult as usual. Im sure you all know the feeling of going and only a little coming out and the sensation and urgency to go again as soon as you pull your pants up...well I about 5 days ago I started using an Enema every morning...Just warm water. And it has made a dramatic difference in my morning. It stopped 95% of the cramping and the urgency and I am only going once in the morning. I get up and have my first bm and immediatley use a warm water enema to continue the process I do it about 3 or 4 times. I really flushes Everything out of the rectum. I hop in the shower and go on about my day. It has added an extra 30 mins to my am routine but the results have made such a huge difference in my day. Has anyone else tried this.

My main issue with the SCD was that There are a lot of main dishes but what about sides...and because my colon is so sensitive I coulnt tolerate all the veggie dishes....It was truly a pickle...on and the almond baking was suckey!

I'm only 2 months in to SCD, and am following the stages from pecanbread.com. I just started Stage 2, and the pecan butter brownies are fantastic! I limit myself to one a day, but could easily gobble up several more. A lot of people rave about the nut butter/nut flour bakes goods, so you probably just need to try some different recipes. There is a woman named Marilyn on the BTVC yahoo group, and she is a great SCD cook. All of her recipes seem to be a hit.

As for sides, right now I'm just having well-cooked/peeled/de-seeded vegetables (carrots, zucchini, spinach, green beans) and fruits (apples, pears, peaches). I'll be adding squash and asparagus pretty soon. As long as everything is cooked, I can tolerate it. I also just started taking enzymes to help break down the food my body isn't doing my itself.

Good luck to you! Hopefully you'll find something that will work!

Good for you Spooky! Thats great news....I will be honest my own vanity is what killed the diet for me...I am already a thin person and I work at keeping my weight up or looking drasticlly sick and uncomfortable with myself...I dropped below the 140 mark on the scale and that freaked me out more than anything...I did not like being that thin...so I had to add some things back to my diet...
