I went through the diet items and nothing about SCD stood out for me so I apologize if it's been discussed before.

Is anyone on the Selected Carb Diet and experiencing any kind of success?

thank you!

Food Intolerances : Gluten, casein, soy, and avenin, (avenin is the prolamin in oats, which is equivalent to the gluten in wheat), beef, grapes, peanuts, cashews, almonds, (but nut butters seem OK except for peanuts), citric acid, chocolate, and agar.

Hi Mary,

Many members here have tried the SCD, and many of them have felt better for a while. Unfortunately though, most of these members have limited success in the long term, because the SCD allows dairy products such as yogurt and cheese, and most of us are sensitive to the casein in those products. If dairy-based foods are eliminated from the SCD, that turns it into the paleo diet, so that is why many members here follow a modified paleo diet. It's usually modified (at least early on) because many of us can't necessarily eat every paleo food option, especially while we are still recovering/healing.

Fiber in particular has to be minimized, and many of the foods listed as paleo contain too much fiber for us until our intestines have done a significant amount of healing. Vegetables fall into this category, and so do fruits. Fruits also have the disadvantage of a high fructose content, which many of us cannot tolerate until we are healed. And of course, citrus fruits contain too much citric acid for most of us (until we have healed).

But unlike the casein in the SCD (which most of us will always react to), we do not normally produce antibodies to paleo foods, so that after we are in remission, most paleo foods are safe for us.

You're very welcome,
Tex

Thank you again!

It's really a trial and error process, is it not? Very interesting. My daughter is coming home soon and we're going to start working on her diet. I agree, dairy is a no no.

Yes it is. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and attention to detail, but it pays off with improved health and and much better quality of life.

Good luck with developing a diet that will allow your daughter to control her symptoms and heal her digestive system.

Have you heard of the LEAP protocol? Is that a good way to go about eliminating triggers?
Thank you so much once more for being so available to us! To me! :)

Mary,

The mediator release test (MRT) that is used with the LEAP program is helpful for determining additional food sensitivities that are not tested for by the EnteroLab tests. But based on the experiences of many members here, the MRT is notorious for missing the major food sensitivities, such as gluten, dairy, and soy. IOW, it can be helpful to avoid the foods that the MRT results list as reactive, but if you choose to use that program, you cannot trust the foods that the MRT results list as safe. Whenever there is a conflict in results, the EnteroLab results are always much more reliable (according to our experience).

You're very welcome,
Tex
