Motivation For Scd!

Hi there,

I am seriously considering going back on the SCD after about a year leave from it. I have celiac and found it to push me over the edge in the ehaling process last year. I was diagnosed about two years ago now (hey, my anniversary just passed!) and found ti so helpful. I am experiencing vague intolerances again. The motivation to go back on this diet is weak, though. Help!

Hi Molly

Like you, I went gluten-free about two years ago. One year ago I still felt awful with unpredictable digestion. I have been on the SCD for a year and feel that my digestion is pretty much healed. I am spending less on food and enjoying the diet thoroughly. I don't eat dairy, don't bother with beans, only rarely at lentils and don't bake much. I feel healthier and healthier all the time. I build muscle when I exercise, have increased endurance, and people are always telling me I look brighter. One small thing that really is a big deal: I can eat apples again after having to avoid them for years.

So, yes, go for it. The SCD or the Paleo, some version of a grain-free, sugar-free, processed food free-diet.

THe homemade SCD yogurt is so very good! I will make it for the rest of my life!

I've been on the diet for 7 months. I have tons of energy. I get up at 5;30 go to work 7 to 5. Walk with my friend 3 miles, come home and ride my horse and sit down and write a few responses on this website and head for bed at 10.

I sleep sound and am ready to go again at 5:30.

2 years ago, I was lethargic, pale, weak - absolutely no muscles. Wasting away. I had ticks, couldn't speak a good sentence, tripped over my own feet, crabby. Couldn't get out of bed in the morning, came home from work, fell into my recliner and didn't move til 10. What a difference the diet made! I hope you are as successful!

Hi. :)

How great that the SCD works for you, I know I was amazed to discover that the SCD was a diet prescribed for Celiacs until the 1950's. I am grateful to find that it works for me too. I spent two and a half years strictly gluten free and although I saw some improvement I was not well.

I find the diet a pleasure, I do some baking with almond flour and find what I can make far tastier than any of the substitutes available in shops. I posted a recipe on the dedicated SCD recipe thread for a simple almond flour bread recently.
