I gotta tell you guys...I'm THRILLED there have been so many discussions lately about
The Maker's Diet! I tried to start a discussion about
it 4 years ago when I first read the book and no one had heard of it! I'd love it if those that are already on the MD and those that are wanting to give it a try could start a thread and share a listing of what they're eating each day and taking supplement-wise (like probiotics). To be honest, when I first read the book I was gunho on trying it and I did a modified version of it (leaving off pork and shellfish) but not knowing enough about
foods beyond the typical American diet, I just didn't have a clue how to START on a true, full version of the MD. Plus I didn't have any support. I haven't understood how to even begin deciding which kind of Probiotic supplement to take! And what the heck does "predigested" mean?! Thanks to all of you who have been contributing to the discussion of this diet. It's really been helpful to me. Being a born-again Christian, I do tell to lean toward this diet for my Crohn's. I just hope I can start to gather enough info and enough self-discipline to take the modified version I've been on to the next level.
