This is very inspiring reading for me. I have been knowing the SCD diet for 10 years now and i have been reading life without bread 5 years ago.
I just was not ready at the time to restrict my diet.
However I have just recently startet living after the Life without bread principle or similar to that (1 of august 2011) I have been reading "The Primal Blueprint" by Mark Sisson and am now doing a diet which incorporates different aspects of both the Life without bread and Primal Blueprint.
I avoid bread, potatoes, rice, sugar, corn.
I eat vegetables - also root vegetables. Lots of eggs in the weekends and meat and vegetables for normal everyday dinner.
At lunch I eat from the food at my works canteen but only meat, vegetables and eggs.
In the last 3 weeks I have been eating flax seed bread for breakfast on work days with butter and cheese. http://lowcarbdiets.about
The primal Blueprint says 100-150 g. of carbs a day all to come from vegetables, nuts and seeds which I think should be okay when I dont eat other kinds of carbs.
For snacks I eat nuts, cream with frozen berries, a piece of dark chocolate or freshly shredded apples with chopped almonds, a bit of chopped dark chocolate (70%) and whipped cream.
I dont do the snacking on apples and berries much, besides occasional in my weekends.
I just dont seem to get any noticeable breakthrough on controlling my diarrhoea besides that the 2 years on remicade has brought the frequency down to 2.
I have been sick for 17 years now with crohn's disease and all the time have had 4-5 times to toilet a day. Much bad smell and very much liquid.
I did 10 years without meds. but had to do something because my intestines was worsening to a degree that I could not expect to live a (normal) life any further without action.
Only last 2 years when having remicade treatment have I been much better gaining 16 kg. of weight but my bad stomach hasnt disappeared. Better but not disappeared
Should I just continue doing what I am doing and have patience?
Im getting a little frustrated here. Any guidance would be much appreciated.
Would the Remicade slow my healing process on a low carb diet?
In the beginning after incorporating this new way of life I did however fell better energy and i have tried to wake up after 6 hours of sleep and feeling more rested than I did before after 9 hours. I did feel that i gained strength in the beginning but now I feel like I have weakened. I would so much want to get really active again and do workouts and build muscles. But 6 month on Imurel (Worst drug ever taken) destroyed my really good condition and made me feel really really bad also worsening my diarrhoea so I have stopped taking this in July without noticing my doctor because i didnt get any response when I told the nurse that i suddenly had stomach pain very unusual to me. And he did not take it serious that my liver count was quite high. Last week I got a letter that my liver count is now back to normal again (Surprise) I dont eat your crabby medicine anymore.
Have anyone got experience with flax seed bread? Lately I had some cramping that I never experienced before. But at the same time I could connect it to eating either bread or rice the night before because I was invited to dinner.
Could it be so that bread or rice freaks my body out more than ever because I dont eat it anymore than once a month or so now.
Dont know what I want from this post actually.
Just annoying that i dont get results fast like somebody does.
I have been ignoring the yoghurt after trying to make it for 14 days but it kind of makes me angry and annoyed when I eat it.
Never had any milk because it upsets my stomach badly.
