I decided to go on the SCD diet. I didn't really have any symptoms but i was have D every once in a while and some of my legal foods were become bad for me. Anyways, I've been on the diet for about a week and I have more D now and cramping than i did when I wasn't on the diet. Does this mean I shouldn't continue the diet or is it normal?

I am not a pro on SCD, but I have heard when you first start the diet you can have some die-off symptoms. Maybe Spooky will be along soon and can advise more. Hugs!

Did you start the first 3-5 days with the introductory version of the diet? The link below takes you to the introductory version:
Are you eating anything now that you weren't eating before you started the diet?
