Hey Ozboz! The Paleo diet is great, but this is the reason that I really recommend trying a diet specific for digestive disease, like the Specific Carbohydrate Diet or GAPS, at least in the beginning. These diets will have stages that slowly allow you to heal so that you are able to handle the raw fruits and veggies. This involves limiting all fruits and veggies at first, cooking and pureeing a few select "safe" veggies/fruits, and then slowly adding in raw foods (really, really slowly). I've been on the diet for over 2 months and I'm starting to be able to handle raw fruits and veggies, but I don't go overboard. I still do most things cooked. You should avoid anything that is causing you obvious distress in the beginning. Again, that is the benefit of doing an elimination diet like SCD or GAPS. They can help you to identify those foods easily.

The problem is I have tried SCD and had no luck I tried it for 3 months the first time with no results then I tried it again and again nothing which is why I'm trying the paleo but in saying that I was doing scd when my symptoms were really bad so might give him a go again

Keep a diary, and don't be afraid to share,
There might have been some foods/additives that slipped under the radar on your SCD trials.
I found the SCD yogurt sent me backwards and noticed huge gains when i gave it up (and that was the proper 24 hour home made stuff).

I found these helpful

the best way for me was to have an incredibly limited diet to begin with and add slowly as i felt better.
