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......)
