SCD seems too hard core for me....anyone tried this book? Advice?

I have tried that diet, and I DO think it helped quite a bit. For me, it's not a cure, but it definitely lessened some of the symptoms I was having. I did it religiously for about 5 months and I started noticing improvements the first week! Have you read the book yet? If so, I can talk more about some of the things in it.

I tried it with mixed results. It has some really good ideas, like cut out sugar and caffeine. But I ended up needing to go a lot further and go full blown SCD. I think gluten is a big problem for me.
