Specific Carbohydrate Diet

6 posts in this topic

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! :)

    • Hope it proves of use  The Umberto Volta interview is particularly interesting and the case study from England also...
    • Following a gallbladder surgery, I could not get my digestive system back to normal.  After several months of constant diarrhea, I went to see the gastro dr. and told her my problems. I also mentioned that I had a sister, brother and nephew with Celiacs.  She said, "I'm almost sure that's the problem".  I, like you, did not want to go back to eating gluten so I did the gene test but it was not positive.  I learned it is not always an exact test.  It came back with Crohns which so far I have no symptoms.  The Endoscopy  indicated Hpylori, CDiff, and one other bacteria.  After I took all the meds to clear my body of these bacterias, I was still having  some symptons of diarrhea and found that I thought I was clear of all gluten but I had a long way to go. Throwing away a wooden cutting board my dad had given me, lipstick, lipgloss, makeup, handcream, plastics in the kitchen, pans that had a scratch, any item in the pantry that had any of the items with starch that may have gluten and the list goes on and on.  I'm still reading labels but I definately can tell a difference as I have eliminated more items that I had no idea were harmful.  This website has been a life-saver for me.  Thank You so much for your wealth of information.   Linda Fortson    
    • Just wanted to pipe in that my hair started going gray at 19. Started coloring it immediately and decades later, still doing it. I had the guts to go completely without coloring in my late 40's. i was fully gray by then, I used a wig during the hair regrowth period. Then one day I started again. And I'm a bit hypo myself but I have no idea if that had anything to do with it. My mom didn't start going gray till she was 50 but my dad started when he got polio at age 20. He was fully gray in his 40's. there's this one beautiful black woman on a tv show in the morning I watch sometimes with the disabled woman I assist, who has partially gray hair, and it is gorgeous on her. It's a cooking show that has several chefs on it but I have no clue as to what anyone's name is cause the sound is always low and we are doing other stuff!
    • Thank you! That was the thread I already found and am reading my way through.
