After a gap of over 2 years, I'm back on SP. Weight was at an all-time high of 245lbs which just tipped me over into the 'morbidly obese' bracket and what really kicked me into action was my blood pressure shooting up at the same time my IBS ramped up the action.

Decided enough was enough and looked around for a solution. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet seems to be the only thing that claims to potentially sort out the root cause of IBS rather than dealing with the symptoms. I ...
After a gap of over 2 years, I'm back on SP. Weight was at an all-time high of 245lbs which just tipped me over into the 'morbidly obese' bracket and what really kicked me into action was my blood pressure shooting up at the same time my IBS ramped up the action.

Decided enough was enough and looked around for a solution. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet seems to be the only thing that claims to potentially sort out the root cause of IBS rather than dealing with the symptoms. I really don't want to spend the rest of my life taking medication just so I don't feel so bad. I want to get better!

It's horrendously restrictive to start with and after 10 days I got it wrong and mucked it up so I'm back to square one :-(

However......... during those 10 days I felt better than I have done in a long while, so something tells me this is worth sticking with, even if it IS a struggle (and it will be, I can tell you). Adding one food in every 4 days is going to drive me NUTS (and no they aren't allowed yet!)

And believe it or not, I am struggling not to lose weight too fast - I don't want to lose over a pound a day :-/ I want to lose at a nice steady rate my body can adjust to, but I need to find ways to make my limited range of foods more interesting, so I eat more (not a problem I've usually had......)

No I've not made 24 hour yoghurt. I think it's a bit time consuming and complicated! I will try and find out what exactly the problem is. If it's a lactose intolerance I will probably have a go at yoghurt making!

Hi! I added you as a friend. I've been on the beat Candida diet for 7 weeks, losing weight at over 2 pounds per week. But today I discovered that what I'm doing isn't enough and am currently looking into GAPS and SCD and going totally grain free!...

I am also English, a Christian, and walk for exercise (although not much since I started the BC diet as I don't feel it right to over exert myself. Losing enough weight as it is!)

Current weight 14 st 0.75 pounds. Goal (possibly interim goal) 10 st 10.

As with you, number 1 goal is to get healthy.

So glad I found you. :-)
