I’m Starting the Specific Carbohydrate Diet

I’m Ryan, I have Ulcerative Colitis:

Hello, i was diagnosed with Colitis about 2 months ago and I have not really taken it seriously enough, i have not changed anything in my diet at all. And I have just finished the steroid treatment that most people have when they get diagnosed. it has been nearly a week after i finished the treatment and i am already having symptoms. it is my own fault though because i have not changed my diet. and i want to start the SCD diet, can anyone comment on this giving tips on recipes and what i should stay away from and what i should be eating. that would be much appreciated thank you for reading :).

    Hi Ryan, if you are really serious about wanting to start the scd i would recommend buying how to break the vicious cycle. It has really helped me understand the diet a lot and what I can do to start it. There is also a link on this website to download a copy of scd lifestyle whicha has also been very helpful for me. I have been on the scd a week now and with all of the tips and guidance the books have given me it hasn’t been too tough. I have been in the same flare about 22 months now and I am only now starting to change my eating habits and diet. Good luck to you. We are all here for you if you need support!!
