Has anyone tried this diet? If you did, did you have any decrease in symptoms while being on it? I cannot tolerate any grain or starchy vegetable. This diet is supposed to help Celiacs by allowing the gut to heal. I also cannot tolerate eggs, dairy, or soy. So, as you all can relate to, finding things to eat is not easy. I thought I was the only celiac that could not tolerate any grains or starch, until I noticed a few people on this message board also cannot. Anyway, if anyone has tried this diet, i would love to hear your opinions about it.

I am on this diet and absolutely love it because I finally feel 100% after going gluten-free. I didn't buy the yogurt maker right away, and I didn't see as much improvement as I had hoped, but since buying one and making my own yogurt, I have had so much improvement and I feel fantastic, but since you cannot tolerate dairy, I guess you will not be getting one :P . There is another member that said she couldn't tolerate dairy before this diet, and now she can. Obviously only she can tell you more about that. Good luck, and I highly recommend it.

Hi, I'm also on the Specific Carb Diet. I'm finally seeing a decrease in symptoms for the first time since I started feeling sick years ago. I would encourage you to try it for a few weeks and see how you feel. Your body will tell you whether the diet is right for you or not.

About the yogurt - I think taking a probiotic will reap the same benefits without the dairy.

If you decide to start, join our posts in the Diet and Weight section of this board. Good luck!!

Hi there, you can find info about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet on this site. It is a book called "Breaking the Vicious Cycle". After reading the postings and success with this diet, I am off to buy my own copy today.

Good luck!

Yes, I am on the SCD ~ and as noted above ~ I could not tolerate dairy before the diet, and have been able to eat it after being on the diet for about two months.
It has been around 4 mos. now, and I feel great. It really does allow your "gut" to heal. Is it easy? No, but it is worth it. I LOVE being able to eat cheese again. :)

IF you decide to go this route, please join our other thread. We don't post daily, but it is nice to keep up from time to time with others on the same "road" as you!!

Good luck! :)
