Hello all :)
On Monday I celebrated my 3 month anniversary on the SCD!
I am very excited to have made it to this point.
Aside from the mini flare I experienced at the 2 month mark, things have been going great and I couldn’t ask for better!
I am currently experiencing NO SYMPTOMS! I feel great and my energy levels are at an all time high!
This diet has become a lifestyle!
I am travelling to South Africa for 16 days in 2 weeks, for a business trip! I am a little worried about travelling for such a long durarion on SCD, but I am going to put in alot of effort to following the diet strictly even while I am away! I will take no risks and bring plenty of SCD legal snacks for the plane ride. I have already contacted the airline and mentioned that I want a fruit and vegetable platter instead of the regular meal which would be filled with SCD illegals!
I have spoken to a collegue in South Africa and he has told me that I won’t have to worry about being able to follow the diet while visiting. He mentioned that South African diet is high in meat protein and fresh fruits and vegetables are always available. This put my mind at ease!
Wish me luck and I will definitly let you know how it goes!
Thank You all for your continued support!
