SCD Diet?

Has anyone followed the SCD Diet or have experience with it? I already searched Chowhound, and it did not come up, but I am wondering. Thanks!

  1. What is the SCD diet? Scarsdale?

      I won't pretend to know a lot--so here are some basic sites:

      It has been 'used' for those with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, coeliac disease and possibly autism--however, there seems to be a real lack of proof that it works

    2. Check out the low carb discussions. I think most of the benefits of the SCD come from carb restriction, from what I recall of it, and from quite a few anecdotal reports I recall.

      I know from a long time participating on low carb discussions for the past 15 years that IBS often goes away overnight with very low carb dieting, along with GERD and asthma, from hundreds of anecdotes.
