Let me know if this has already been done in this thread (I can't remember!)... But could each of you ladies jot down a quick menu of what you eat for a day--to get some ideas? Thanks :)

Hi, I would like to join this thread. I have the book and have been trying to follow the SCD diet off and on a little while. I have to go back to my doctor to see if I have celiac disease. I had bloodwork. But I don't care what the bloodwork says when I go back, I can't eat grain products and stuff like that. I kind of quit eating them a while before the blood test. I did not think my doctor would test me. Well she changed her mind. I tried to eat all I could before being tested, got really sick. I still think where I was not eating it, it might of messed up my test results? So I am not sure if they will be positive.

I get the most awful problems when I eat rice. I literally have to run to the bathroom!!!!! And even potatoes give me problems now. So this has kind of convinced me to try it. Also dairy has bothered me for years, so I have not eaten it!!!!

I have made the yogurt a couple times with a heating pad, wow, it takes a long time!!!!! Got those instructions off the site. Does any one else make it this way? My 17 year old daughter got worried about me leaving a heating pad on 24 hours!!!! Esp. while we were sleeping.

The yogurt makers are pretty expensive. But if I am sure I can tolerate the yogurt, I will have to eat more to be sure, I would like to buy one. I am still having stomach problems. I have not tried the SCD diet 100%, I need to!!!! I am 39 and my weight keeps going down and I keep getting weaker from these stomach problems. I weigh about 118 now. I have FMS and some other things as well.

I have had to get some tests, bloodwork, xrays, etc.. lately. Still under doctors care(specialists, etc...), sigh. I get some of my test results tomorrow. Some next week. I get a DXA sp? scan in Dec. Doctor thinks I have malasorption sp? I have to start on some vitamins, etc.. I don't do well on vitamins, etc.... tried so many.

But I can tell when I eat certain things I do get sicker with stomach problems. So I think I have to heal my stomach for anything to get better. I posted a couple times a while back in the other threads, everyone was so nice.

I have not been able to post a little while. Had some surgery. I am hoping things get better.

Sorry this is so long. I would love to be able to eat and not worry what I was eating was not going to make me sick!!!! I do have to avoid MSG due to it causing migraines too. Gosh it is hard some days. I am dealing with other sick family members too, different issues.

Thanks!!!!!!

It looks like I am really late coming on to this thred, I joined the yahoo group for the SCD but it wasn't helpful at all.

My husband is going on the SCD for his crohn's disease, and we thought it would be easier to switch the whole family (since half of us are gluten-free anyway) can someone email me some recipes. I am terrified that I won't be able to find anything to cook for us to eat.

Hi Connielynn38

Having problems with what one would assume is innocent rice, is what led me to try the SCD. I knew something was wrong when I couldn't even have plain rice without feeling bloated and gassy! Now I can eat potatoes and rice about twice a week with no problems whatsoever :D The rest of the time I stick to SCD guidlines (don't wanto push my good luck). Hope you manage to try the diet 100% out and hopefully you too can later enjoy these foods again....

Hi Jen

Yep, the same question was posted by LisaR on page 12 with answers on page 12 and 13 ;)

A new (and unpleasant) development!

Lately in the evenings I've been having excruciating pain right before having to go the bathroom. I'm talking about side-ripping, unbearable scream-out-loud pain. It's weird because my BMs are pretty normal and formed. I don't know what's wrong - if this keeps up, should I go see my GI? Does anyone else have this symptom?

Thanks....

Since I had to add casein to my 'can't eat' list 2 months ago, and discovered a nice new soy sensitivity last week :blink: I'm thinking I really don't want this to go any further... I can see that it'll be eggs next, then who knows... I won't have much left to eat. I also avoid corn and rice because they bloat me and just make me feel sluggish. Do you think the SCD would enable me to reintroduce these foods and stop the risk of reacting with any more foods?

I also read somewhere tonight that extra additional food sensitivities coming along one by one is a sign of a leaky gut. What's the SCD take on this theory?

Thanks! :)

Oh btw - there seems to be a lot of dairy on the SCD, and since I can't eat casein, what's the alternative on the SCD?

One by one, I developed food sensitivies, too. Gluten, casein, soy, rice, eggs, peanuts, etc. Even tomatoes and avacados. I looked at leaky gut and found some interesting things there. It seems likely that's what was happening. I started the SCD diet having lost a lot of weight. But it was the only diet that had foods I could eat still. It made sense. At first I couldn't eat any raw fruit at all. After about 3 months now, I'm able to add some foods back into my diet - like bananas and quinoa (yes, I know it's not on the legal SCD list, but I'm doing ok with it). I can't do the yogurt yet (tried that and was sick for days). I'm hoping that as time goes by I will be able to add some of the proteins back - if my body decides that they aren't something to attack. It's been very hard. I look at the people that just have to remove gluten from their diet - and I think their lucky - I just wish I could go there. The SCD diet just made sense for me - but it's not easy. I eat a lot of almonds - almond milk, soaked peeled almonds for snack, almond bread, etc. Thank god I can still eat them. I'm doing better, and have gained 5 pounds (finely). I eat all day long. Lots of salads, appleasauce, meat and veggies. Very simple foods. I'm just glad I found the SCD diet - I feel like I'm not alone - I have all of you. When I get really down about all of this, I look on this website - and I don't feel so all alone. Thanks, everyone.

A coupla questions - has anyone tried making the yogurt using the oven light method? They mean leave the oven temp off and just leave the light on with the yogurt in there for 24 hours right?

Second one - which wines are dry? Merlot is, right? Wine, cheese, fruit and nuts sounds like enough to sustain me everyday for a week :) Yum. I'm sure it will get old, but my goal is to add starches in one by one after a month or so to try and determine what's ok by my tummy.

Hi, yes that is what I think they mean. You would still have to check the temperature and maybe crack open the oven door. I would try the oven method. But I have no oven light. I have a cheap stove. I am thinking of buying a yogurt maker they have listed on their site. I can see if I can find that link for you about that. I will go and look. I do have it somewhere.

I don't know much about the wines.

I have not been able to do the SCD diet 100%. I have found that the honey gives me terrible problems. But I am sure it will not do that to everyone.

Can't find a link on this. Do you have the book? In the book, it says to replace your oven light with a 60 watt bulb. Always check the temperature with a thermometer first. You may have to prop the oven door open with a little stick. Caution upon completion:replace with regular oven bulb.

Of course those with a gas stove can depend usually on the pilot to usually keep the oven within the correct range.

Hope this helps.

If you can afford it, I would say it is so much easier to use a yogurt maker. I think mine was 50 dollars shipped and I use it all of the time, so it is definately worth the money.

How's everyone doing? This thread has been pretty quiet the last few weeks. Any updates on how you're doing on the diet?

Here's my update. I've been feeling really good the last few weeks. My only problem was with some chili I made a couple days ago - for some reason it was passing straight through me. I think it's because of the tomatoes though - I've long suspected that I don't tolerate them well. Same with oranges - too acidic I think. Luckily with this diet it's easier to identify problem foods.

But I've been able to eat almond butter which I couldn't before. I made a yummy pizza crust out of almond butter and eggs - super easy and just two ingredients - the best meal I've had in a long time! I'm happy too that it's getting colder because it's great soup weather. Ditto on the winter squashes - such a great side dish to supplement the meat and veggies. I think I could live off of butternut squash soup.

I haven't ordered any bulk almond flour. Is that what you used or did you buy smaller bags and crush them yourself. I haven't had pizza since being diagnosed (7 months) and I am dying for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am doing okay ~ I went off the SCD for a couple of weeks... and now need to get back on and be good!! :) I don't like how I feel when I add carbs to my diet from bread, etc. I feel much better sticking to the SCD. *sigh*

So, that is why I haven't written any "updates" ~ I've been naughty!!! I will let you know how I am doing once I clean out again. Started on Monday... feel better already! :) I guess, in reality, my body just does not like carbs from bread/pasta/muffins/crackers/cookies/donuts/etc. I could go on and on! I need to stick to meat, fruit, veggies and almond flour items.

Preoptmegs - For the pizza - I used almond butter instead of flour. I get it from Trader Joes. It's pretty pricey, but it works well. I haven't really tried almond flour for baking yet. I haven't had a lot of time to do cooking and baking lately - maybe in another week after my big exam. There are so many things I want to try when I have the time again!

Kimberly - I've been cheating a little too - a small amount of dark chocolate sometimes at night. It doesn't seem to bother me too much. I'm wondering if this diet is working because of cutting out the starches - but maybe sugar is ok for me? I think in another few weeks I'll try reintroducing more sugar and see how it goes.

Hi all!

I'm doing really well. I still follow the main SCD outlines, but have the occasional starches such as rice and gluten-free bread. What really allows me to eat starches without problems is the amount. Previously I'd eat large portions of anything really, including starches. Now I've reduced every meal and have 4 small ones instead of 3 large ones. This seems to make my digestive system very calm and content :D

Hope you guys are well too.....

Misa

Hi all,

I just bought and read Breaking The Viscious Cycle. The book strikes a presumption that one has chronic diarrhea! :blink: I (thankfully) do not. I bought the book because I suspect a leaky gut and thought the diet would help, but now I think it might be overkill for my situation. Has anyone undertaken the SCD without diarrhea? In fact, to be honest, my problems are at the other end of the spectrum - would the SCD help with that?
