      Where do you find this diet?   Seems to me, I read it years ago and tried to follow it but it didn't do squats for me.  Was it written by Elaine Godshalk?

     Yep, that is the book I read and the diet did absolutely nothing for me.  Thanks though.

How long were you on it? Diets generally don't bring quick, dramatic results. In my experience, diet is only one part of the solution. Probiotics to rebalance the gut and supplements to heal the gut and decrease inflammation are necessary to support dietary changes.

You can never expect immdiate results. It takes years to repair damage in the digestive system. My bloods were normal though. And you can check out www.rawfoodsupport.com this is where I am getting info.

So..... I am starting the SCD Diet in the morning......I am prepared for a few unhappy days at the beginning. My husband bought a bunch of oven pizzas and Peanut butter because I told him I wasn't cooking for him or my brother for a week so I can help myself not cheat. I read that it is extremely important to have "fanatical adherence" as the author of the book says. The only way to try it for me is to go all for it for a month or so. I need to do all I can on my own before the doc says nothing is working time to cut it out!
