The evil is getting into my head today. I'm almost three weeks into the SCD diet and the voices are telling me "hey, your wife is out of town..cheat on the diet! Have some beer and order a pizza! Your symptoms weren't that bad anyway. Isn't it worth being able to eat the way you want to to have a little pain?".
 
I've been so good. Lost lots of weight, feel great, but want the pizza and beer so bad!!! devil

SCD diet? Please enlighten. What diet is this.

Also one slice of pizza and one beer won't hurt. :)

I have to be by the book for at least one month at least so I can be sure I haven't sabotaged it if it doesn't work.

Yes, but who knows...if it works maybe I won't have to be on Remicade forever.

If you do have the pizza, have a piece for me. That beer is even more tempting. Ugh.

Are you in remission with the combined therapy (Remi and SCD).

I really only just started the SCD about three weeks ago. I've heard it could take 4 months to really good a good effect from it. But no, the Remicade doesn't have me in full remission and that's why I've added the desperate measure of this diet. Actually, I enjoy a lot of things about the diet but I do miss the things I've eaten for my entire life. But I'd love being pain free even more.

Stay away from those! You know, after being on the SCD for a while they don't even taste as good as they did before you had to...
Of course I say that, but I still crave cake a lot. It never tastes as good when I indulge though.
Maybe just not worth it.

Yes, I'm hoping it's like people say about becoming vegetarian.:After awhile grilled meat no longer smells good to them. Can't imagine! Hey, at least I can have grilled meat, huh?

I became a vegetarian at one point (not anymore)...grilled meat was the one thing that made me regret it. That and Christmas ham.
But yes, meat in general became repulsive.

Everyone's different - when I was a vegetarian, meat did not matter and since I stopped, I still won't eat BBQ or ham or sausage of any kind. But the ham or bacon and sausage probably relates to when I worked in a meat packing plant quality control lab one summer - the stuff is not really food for me.

The cravings reminds me of a Calvin cartoon. Calvin's sitting on a sled at the top of a hill and he has some thoughts: "I'll miss those rocks." "I'll stop short of the cliff." "Those trees are off to the side.". Then he looks at the reader and says, "My brain is trying to kill me!"
