Supplements and Weight Gaining on SCD

Hi all

Looking for advice on what supplements I can take while trying to integrate the SCD diet. I'm recently diagnosed with crohns, and only went to get checked out because I was losing a lot of weight way to fast. I'm 6'2 currently 170lbs, dropped to there from 210 in 6 weeks. I've always been athletic, so I am healthy in the 190lbs area. I've heard some good things about the SCD diet and the advantages/relief it has given some people. That said I know it has to be followed very strictly, so I'm looking to switch out my current vitamins for "legal" supplements. I would also like to find a way to replace creatine and protein shakes, but with something that gives me the same result. Below is what I currently am taking

Mens one-a-day
Finest Natural vitamin C 500mg
Nature Made Triple Omega 3-6-9
Phillips Colon Health Probiotic
Muscle Milk Chocolate Protein shake
Body Fortress Fruit Punch Creatine
Natures Bounty Green Tea Extract 315 mg x2

Thanks for the help!

I know nothing of the SCD diet, I have tried Paleo a few times and failed. I can relate to you that I am usually 225 ish and currently struggling to stay 180.

They do have a Paleo Protien that may also be acceptable on SCD, is creatine monohydrate not SCD safe? It's found in meat, I think issue with most creatines and SCD and Paleo diet is the Sugar added to Creatine.

Here is link to Paleo Protien http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/mh...o-protein.html

I would get rid of the chocolate and green tea because of the caffeine unless you know it doesn't give you any symptoms.

My son, E, uses these SCD legal multi vitamins.

He also takes an SCD legal probiotic since we do not use the yogurt (because of dairy sensitivities.

I don't see how creatine would be against scd rules at all.

Well I wouldn't think straight creatine is. However most of the popular creatine supplements have sugar. Cell Mass, Cell Tech and the other various major brands.

If it were me i wouldn't be worried about shedding weight initially with the scd diet. I lost 30 lbs going on it, although much of that was during sickness prior. However, i feel great, so i couldn't care less what the scale says.

I would be more concerned with adequate nutrition and achieving remission. Just my 2 cents.
