Can I drink coffee when starting the diet? I am a long-time coffee addict, and will not be able to function at work without at least one cup per day.
It's recommended to dilute your coffee with half water at the beginning of the diet.Does the SCD diet work for Acid Reflux too? I have both mild Crohns and bad Acid Reflux.
Yep, I used to have to take Protonix. I've been off it for over a year now. Occasionally I'll get heartburn, but it's uncommon.The problem is that it is huge, and I was hoping to start the diet immediately.
The majority of the book is recipes, so you'll have it read in no time flat!PS. Does this diet work? I saw a list of legal and illegal foods. Aren’t we supposed to avoid nuts and food with seeds, due to risk of blockages etc.?
You don't eat nuts and seeds at the beginning of the diet. Cook, peel, and deseed all of your fruit and vegetables. After you have some improvement, you can try adding in almond butter or pecan butter. Nut flour, whole nuts, beans, and raw foods are advanced foods and aren't to be tried until you've healed.
