Hi Boomer I find squash is alot like turnip for me which doesn't agree with me too much but if you are going to try it just try a very small amount to see how it works on you . Someone else might have some insight on it. lol gail

No margarines, butter only. Margarine is horrible on my guts. Even though I'm not on the diet any more, I'll still never eat margarine again. At least butter is something your body can recognize as natural. Don't worry about the extra calories.

I know nothing about the squash, but if you cook it to death, it might be easy on the gut.

This is a staged diet for kids with autism, who also use the SCD.

It lists squash as a Stage 2 food, which means it may be pretty easy on you, if it is cooked very well. But the only real test, as another poster indicated, is eat a small amount and see : )

Tapered down off Entocort mid August. Now on Asacol 2400, Protonix 40mg/day.

On Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) since late July and seeing improvement in "output" quality and hopefully therefore absorption. Taking SCD legal supplements: B vitamins, Folonic Acid 800mg, EnZym Complete DPP IV Aid by Kirkman, and Saccaromyces Boulardii (a probiotic yeast).

Current biggest complaints: LRQ fullness and slight burning. Gastritis symptoms are quiet now. What was horrible right hip and low back pain has subsided about 60%.
