Dairy Free Specific Carbohydrate Diet?
0

10 posts in this topic

I have read some of the threads about the SCD diet. Can anyone post some links on where to find SCD recipes that do not contain dairy? I know the dairy in the diet is lactose free, but I am going to try to avoid all dairy. I just need some substitutions for the dairy ingredients. I just ordered the Breaking the Vicious Cycle book and I saw that Amazon has a Grain-free cookbook. But again, it is difficult to make the recipes when they call for butter, yogurt, cheese, cream, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I find this diet hard to follow being dairy free. Eating the yogurt seems to be key. You can find out how to make the yogurt by using coconut milk or almond milk but I don't know how its done. I only have that advice so invest in a yogurt maker and google yogurt made with other milks like coconut and almond.

You might look into the Paleo Diet as an alternative. I didn't want to do specific carb because of dairy either. I think the Paleo diet works pretty well, though sometimes it can be tough to get enough calories, and not eating ANY grains can be difficult out at restaurants (if any of us even go out to restaurants at this point).

there's a book called The Paleo Diet, one called Neanderthin...and some more I don't know the names of. I do it losely and am happy to talk to you about it more if you're interested.

Cordain says that all meats should be trimmed very well of fat and, then you turn around and supplement the diet with perilla oil??? This in no way resembles any diet eaten by Paleo people during recent times, nor does the fossil record support this. They always ate the fatty parts. If you don't, you will end up eating way too much protein, yet not taking in enough calories.

Among people who do a diet based on paleo principles, there is the feeling that making it a low fat diet is a compromise he made to keep the diet from getting slammed by the medical establishment. Personally, I would rapidly go into the "rabbit starvation" mode if I ate that little fat and few if any starches.

It is hard sometimes to feel full, but you do get used to it. I was losing weight like crazy, and I don't have it to lose - once I added nut butters and some almond milk in there, my weight evened out.

To be honest, I haven't read the books. I read the principles: fruit, nuts, seeds, non-starchy veggies, and relatively lean meats. I did get his book on Paleo diet for athletes, because I was starting to play tennis...but it didn't mention the fat stuff too much. His approach is overly wordy and scientific when it needent be, in my opinion. I like to understand the way I am eating, but political argument about fat or cholesterol or salt or whatever I find ridiculous - those are the kinds of things that individuals work out for themselves.

I eat meat, usually lean but sometimes not - like bacon - and I eat beef but only grass fed for the omega balance and the fact that it doesn't make cows eat corn which they weren't meant to digest. I actually think right now I'm having a hard time digetsting fats altogether - so my liver must be clogged or something. All of my bm's are floating, and if I mix avocado and beef together, something I loved doing two months ago, my stomach is unhappy like crazy.

I guess my point in suggesting the diet was that it bears a vague similarity. When I quit all grains and all beans, lots of my digestive problems disappeared. I wanted to do the SCD, but don't want to add back any dairy, whether or not it has lactose in it.

Another diet that helped me out quite a bit was the BODY ECOLOGY DIET. It's meant to restore flora and balance in the digestive tract, and she does suggest, after about a year, adding kefir to the diet, which is like yoghurt. I found the diet difficult to maintain for lack of energy, but it did seem to decrease my bloating and get me off sugar entirely.

Bully4You,

Is it worth buying the Paleo diet or should I just scan the web for recipes? I think that diet is for me because I cannot tolerate grains or dairy. Do they make any good Paleo cookbooks? What is a list of safe foods? What am I suppose to avoid?

Thanks for your help!

Don't buy the book. I'm sure they have it at your local library. It's a sure "once read" book.

I haven't seen the Paleo book exactly - I bought one for athletes because at first I was having a bit of trouble with energy levels, and I was starting to play tennis. I think I either adjusted or finished with some yeast die off or something, because I got much better with the energy and the muscle cramps.

I, therefore, am an example of someone who has done it from the Internet, and from common sense.

The gist is, if paleo man could not have eaten it, neither should you. Thus, grains would not have been feasible (can't be eaten raw, and are extremely difficult to harvest if you have hunter/gatherer society), nor legumes of any kind (goodbye hummus), and probably not starchy vegetables, though there is some contention in anthropology circles about this one.

NOT TO EAT:

dairy, beans (including soy), grains, starchy veggies, super fatty meats, sugar, lots of table salt

TO EAT:

veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, lean meats, fish.

I EAT ALSO:

winter squash (a bit starchy, but frankly, the paleo diet has nothing that feels creamy in it, except nut butters, so I like to whip up some squash soup with apple); ocassional sweet potato.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:

sugar - it'll hit you like a ton of bricks on this diet. You should avoid sugar. Try stevia, and eating sweet veggies like carmelized onions, summer squash, winter squash, etc. Also, if you eat a lot of dried fruit (which Paleo chick/dude would have), you want to watch out you don't have any yeast problems. It'll feed the yeast. If your yeast is under control, and you don't have diabetes, dried fruits are probably fine. I think you could well get a lot of natural sugar on the paleo diet.

salt - you should use either himalayan crystal salt (which is ultra delicious but spendy) or sea salt. table salt has problems. (this is true for all, not just pelo dieters)

water - you'll get more in the veggies, but you'll need more with all the protein. i'm usually a bit dehydrated - this is some advice of mine I wish I would take myself.

It takes a bit of getting used to. Snacking is perfect, you've got tons of choices on snacking. And if you like veggies, you won't be sad at dinner or lunch either. Breakfast is a bit tough because we're used to having special breakfast food...I have yet to master breakfast, because I think I eat too many eggs.

Also, the only "milk" that works if you put "milk" in your coffee/tea, is almond milk, and it's a bit odd. Again, be careful to get gluten-free almond milk if you do choose to do almond milk.

As to weight gain/loss - watch the nut butters. They're yummy, and they'll help keep the pounds on if you need that (or they have me anyway), but if you want pounds off, you might want to take it easy on them. Lots of calories.

If I think of anything else I'll tell you. But I would google paleo diet and see what you come up with. And then experiment.

I thought of something else, actually. I'd really look into trying raw sauerkraut. It has some of the same good intestinal bacteria as yoghurt, but it's dairy free. It also helps to digest proteins, and is really good, for some reason, for your skin. It's relatively expensive in the store (healthfood store), but you can make it yourself i you have a food processor. I eat it almost every time I have meat - it's good in meat rollups and with chicken, it's good on a hamburger with carmelized onions and avocado. I like it. It does stink though...and your friends/family will doubtlessly make fun of you.

I kinda eat a paleo diet like diet, since I (on top of gluten of course) avoid legumes and nightshades, and dairy, and generally don't eat a lot of grains. So I end up eating a lot of veggies and fruit plus meat and fish. I do have a couple rice cakes for breakfast though but that's all grain I usually have in a day. I was completely sugar free for a while, too, but nowadays I might have some every now and then, if I have some jam for instance.

I don't cut out the fat in meat, and I add liberal amounts of olive oil to my stir frys, and I like to use coconut milk for some things like smoothies. I have actually lost weight! I feel full and satisfied the way I eat though, and my tummy seems happy, too.

      Thanks for pointing all that out Gemini! I look forward to finally getting off gluten for good to see how much everything changes.  I never thought about the absorption of my synthroid with all my other issues.  I just see my primary dr. for all my thyroid, perhaps I will ask for a referral to an endo dr for further evaluation and treatment.  Thanks for all the information! 
    • Gluten And Vertigo
      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
