I agree with Jay about
limiting fruit and honey. People who stay away from the extra sweet stuff (apples, grapes, honey, etc.) seem to do better. Go light on the high carb fruits and veggies, and heavy on the low carb ones.
I've only had 2 setbacks on SCD. The first was when I had a glass of wine one month into the diet. I'm thinking the sulfates were what bothered me. The second was a two week period where I just didn't feel well, and had some symptoms flair. This was at around the 3 month mark, and from what I've read, the "3 month flair" is very common. Since then, I've been doing better, and think my energy is finally starting to improve. I just added shrimp to my diet, and was a little worried about
how I would tolerate a "stringy" fish, but it seemed to go over fine. I haven't tried nut flours yet, but nut butter seems to be a good substitute in a lot of recipes.
EDIT: When you start nut butter, it's best to go with pecan or almond. Peanut butter and cashew butter tend to bother people at first because, as a legume, it's more starchy. I haven't tried either of them yet.
