I think a lot of the changes would be emotional....but if one eats a lot of junk food and sugar, there would be some withdrawal process.
I have a friend on the SCD...she loves to cook, so it's not a problem for her. She has less discomfort and is able to have treats...but of a different variety...I don't think she was a sweet addicts anyway, so the changes are more of the regimen of eating more often..etc.
The SCD is easier to digest apparently.
I definitely feel better when I have more healthy foods than junk...but I don't eat a lot of junk food anyway...it does have its place, however.
There are always better choices...but one's healthy doesn't mean it will agree.
If you're going to try it...keep us posted as to how you're doing.
