SCD ~ Specific Carbohydrate Diet

Specific Carbohydrate Diet

I have already posted about AIP – autoimmune protocol diet and it’s benefits but I also tried the Specific Carbohydrate Diet which has helped me considerably in that it explains what and why you should eat or avoid certain foods.  A great resource for anyone who suffers from any gut issues. I use the legal and illegal lists often, you can find them here. This is the most common resource given to patients newly diagnosed with IBD.

Before I purchase a book I borrow it from the library to see if it will be worth the money and help me now and in the future. I bought these two cookbooks because they are helpful in the kitchen when working through SCD.

I found that this diet didn’t get rid of my symptoms but was a definite asset in my healing process. Some foods on this list still bother me and other items I can tolerate,  I believe that everyone is different and each person should find what foods they can and can’t tolerate and go from there to develop their own personal way of eating well for ultimate health. So many of these recipes that I have tried so far are delicious and I learned a great deal from the Breaking the Vicious Cycle that I can honestly say it was a great stepping stone. Please visit the authors page here it’s absolutely amazing what one women accomplished in a life time, how many people she has helped even after her death in 2005 and how incredible her findings were after realizing what she had stumbled upon. Here’s to healing one step at a time!  Cheers!
