I've been reading about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet on the web. I've been gluten-free for almost two years, but still struggle a lot with symptoms. I wondered if anyone has tried this diet, and if so, any advice?

Thanks.

Yes, I have been on the diet since a week before Easter. It is going really well and I am feeling much better!! :D I was not getting better just giving up the gluten, in fact, I was feeling icky all the time. I had reached the place where I could not eat dairy either. Time to do something!!! So, I found and read about the SCD. It is NOT easy... but it is worth the time and effort. Plus I have lost 20 lbs. so far! :) BONUS!! I have even been able to introduce cheese (allowed on the diet) back into my diet. Let me know how it goes! :D

I was on it for about 4 months. I've been diagnosed for over 2 years and was having a lot of problems with stuff like rice and potatoes. I tried a low carb diet at first (not trying to lose weight, just trying to get my blood sugar under control), then switched over to the SCD after I lost weight and realized I needed carbs. I think it's the most gut-friendly diet for celiacs, and I'm now able to eat rice and potatoes again! Anytime I do have bad reaction, I go back on the SCD for a few days until I'm feeling close to 100%.
The book makes a lot of sense-after all the damage we've done to our bodies, it's understandable why so many gluten free foods still "hurt" or don't sit right. By eating easily digestable proteins and sugars, we're allowing our guts to heal like they should, instead of scraping hard-to-digest foods over an open wound
Good luck!
