DD followed strict SCD for almost 2 yrs( 2011-2013). We sticked to it because her symptoms improved and gained weight.Though it was a healthy life style change, the time and effort to stick to it was tremendous. Luckily , she was able to tolerate all SCD legal foods.
Home made chicken soup was a must for her 2 times a day!!
When I say strict SCD , never once,in these 2 yrs she strayed from the diet.
To make it work,DD made so many adjustments- she chose near by public university over another far away interested university . She stayed at home throughout rather than staying in dorm.That way she sticked to the diet.Skipped eating out, parties and travels.
While on the diet , her skin was so glowy and flawless with out any pimples or marks.Now out from diet , whenever she had sugary stuffs - pimples for sure and it leaves black spots!!!
While on SCD , she followed some websites for recipes. Ordered from wellbees's for SCD legal snacks.
But she got C.diff after 6 months on SCD. So while sticking to SCD, we did home fecal transplant which brought her life to pre- UC days.She continued on SCD for 1 yr or more and later slowly added resistant starches to her diet.
Now she eats everything like a normal individual but avoids colored and commercial foods.
Wish I have the patience and energy to cook all those healthy foods and soups !!!!she too says she miss those turkey sausages and soups so that she can have her glowy skin back!!!
