You are correct about most not having probiotics. Even some of the ones that do contain probiotics have probiotics that are bad for folks with CD. I learned this when reading the Probiotics Revolution by Huffnegal. A very interesting book if you want to know about probiotics.
The Paleo diet and SCD are very similar and as I SCD (and have had great results) I will continue to SCD. What I am paying attention to are the foods they reference as inflamitory. They say no grains, but I am already there from SCD. They talk to the importance of low carb and after Live Without Bread, I am already there. So I do not expect much change but rather a few tweaks.
They talk to the importance of elevated D3, the balance between omega 3 and 6, and some other stuff that makes some sense to me. I expect I will adopt these.
I have not been 100% for the last couple of weeks so I am looking to make some small changes to get back where I was.
The justification fro the recommendations amy or may not stand up, but most of the conclusions from the Paloe Diet are consistent with what I have read and adopted from other sources, so this makes the conclustions credible for me.
As with all of us, I am looking for the optimal diet, to gain optimal health and I find reading about different diets to be helpful. In fact I would say that I have taken something out of every book I have read.
Oh, one more thing. Paleo's response is that our ancestors died from infections and battles, not from cancer, diebetes, ...
If they had our medicine and their diet they would outlive us. I am willing to accpet this, because I truly believe that what most Americans eat is complete garbage and if we improve, we live longer and healthier lives. JMHO
