After being on the SCD diet for 5 months I pretty much determined most food don't hurt me, except one category: desserts. Specifically cookies and cake. Yes, I've made SCD friendly desserts and yes, they all do the same to me. Must be just the excess of butter and sweetener of any kind.
I'm lucky this is all I can't eat and lucky that I know what to expect if I eat a dessert. Sometimes it's worth it. Yesterday I made a flourless (no, not SCD friendly) chocolate cake and it made my brain glow it was so good! But this morning I paid for it. But it was almost worth it!

We always have luncheons at work when there are meetings. They ALWAYS have brownies, which I LOVE. But they don't love me, thats for sure. But every once in awhile their call is just too loud and I give in, and of course always get a belly ache. I guess we have to give in once in awhile to remind us why we shouldn't eat them. Dang it!

It sounds like a carb issue. I've read about people who says their guts just won't accept high carbs, which desserts pretty much are. Maybe you have a yeast overgrowth? That can affect people's ability to deal with carbs.

Sometimes a "forbidden" food won't bother me, like dairy. The other 80% of the time, it will make me pay terribly. I have things that I can't eat b/c of GERD and then things I can't eat b/c of the colitis. It is a growing collection including many of my favorite foods. I do give in and eat them sometimes too often. lol.. I wondered if others do the same. I quit taking benefiber b/c I thought it wasn't making that big of a difference but I am going to add it again b/c I think it was helping me.
