Too much red meat is not good for anyone. We should balance with fish, poultry, fruits, and veggies. From what I know, grass-fed beef does not cause inflammation.
I find misunderstandings in the paleolithic diet is mainly meat, but the meat does not cause putrefaction and consequently inflammation?

I'm undiagnosed at this time, but I suspect IBD (probably mild-moderate CD). Last year, before the abdominal pain started full-force, my old PCP (internist) was concerned about my gallbladder and has been ever since 1999 when I was diagnosed with GERD. Since I have diabetes, high cholesterol, and high BP in my family, she put me on the Paleo/Primal diet and told me to customize it for myself. At the time, I was low-income with no health insurance and finishing my Bachelor degree (I graduated in December). I now have a full-time job that I love, though it can be stressful, and HMO health insurance through work.

Anyway, I did my best to research low-carb diets and decided on Primal since it didn't require eliminating dairy (I love my milk and cheese). I did really well on it and lost over 30 lbs and 2 dress sizes. I started allowing GF grains again recently because I was looking for more variety. I try to stick with Primal as much as possible, but I'm not as strict as I once was.

I have no problems with meat - I eat grass fed and organic when possible - but have problems with a lot of vegetables. I also cannot eat sausages, hamburgers or any other forms of processed meat.

I just wanted to post that I am giving the SCD a second chance. I had good results for several months when I previously tried the diet, which was over five years ago. I fell off the wagon when I became more active which eventually led to eating out at restaurants that were not SCD legal. I think that since I didn't feel worse immediately I just forgot about the diet and how good it made me feel. I hope this time goes as well as the first. I think that it will, I just need to maintain the dedication.

I don't notice any problem with fiber from fruits and vegetables as long as i'm not in an acute flare. I actually think it makes my digestion better to add fruit and vegetables when i'm not flaring. My Crohn's seems to only affect my colon so maybe that helps me tolerabe fiber. Good luck everybody!

Hiya. I've decided to give SCD a try and I've been on the diet for about a month. I'm getting ready to start making yogurt. I've heard that plain Dannon yogurt can be used for a starter, but the label doesn't say which cultures are in it, just that it "contains active cultures including L. Acidophilus". Does anyone out there know what other cultures are in it? I've noticed a lot of other brands' plain yogurts have Bifidus, which the SCD people say to avoid when making yogurt.

To make yogurt I use Yogourmet freeze-dried yogurt culture (Amazon). The same brand yogurt maker too. I let it ferment for 24 hours. Makes excellent yogurt for smoothies.

I've been basically scd (plus sweet potatos, occasional rice and quinoa) and in remission for about 3 years. I have recently started feeling like I'm going into a flare. Went to the doctor today..getting tests done..but wondering about experiences of flares after long term remission on scd? Were you able to get things back under control with diet? Going back to intro diet? Or did you opt for changing/adding meds? Thanks!

When I follow the SCD I feel my best. I have followed it for three plus years...and have strayed from time to time. That is how I know it works,right?

I have found when I am vigilant with my diet I am better able to tolerate the occasional cheat. Go figure.

No, I haven't tried one of them, if you do try them let us know if they are any good. I would be cautious and mention it first to the doctor at your next visit. I would bring the ingredient list to show the doc too. I sometimes send an email if I think it will be faster to find out an answer. That's what I do for any new supplement that I'm interested in taking anyways.

Has anyone ever tried "Intermittent Fasting?" It is not a diet, but a way of changing your eating pattern(s).

Hi Lynda Lynda,
I haven't gone there (although i am heading that way due to my own circumstances)

Keep in mind most of the information out there on the web will be for weight loss dieters and not particularly relevant to us.

My two go-to people for digestive health issues are Dr Ruscio and Chris Kresser.
A few links i found helpful in understanding how i should go about it and why it might help.....

for a quickie - 5 minutes
Is Intermittent Fasting Right For You?
https://drruscio.com/intermittent-fasting-right/

For a deep dive (an hour & 10) - perfect for that walk in the park....
Starts off generally with the importance of getting the basics right before even thinking about intermittent fasting.
Actually, more of a podcast about what to do before 'IF'
The Intermittent Fasting Podcast with Dr Ruscio
https://ifpodcast.com/2018/08/06/episode68/

and lastly....half an hour....

I thought I had the confidence to start the 16/8 IF this weekend, but I have not started it yet. I know I can do it. I have gained weight since starting 6mp and Humira. But that aside, my habit is to eat all day and not just when I am hungry.

I'm saving your articles to read tomorrow.

Have you heard of this DeLauer guy who is a model/bodybuilder and a Ketosis "guru" who is a motivational speaker ? And a Dr. Eric Berg ?

Thanks for your help.

First up, sorry, big fingers small phone and an autocorrect that can't read my mind....
Not that I know anything about your personal circumstances (so take it with a grain of salt), but you might want to start easy (12/12 or 10/14) and if it isn't too onerous then go harder.
At this stage (on humira) I wouldn't be worrying too much about weight gain other than sticking to real food that you tolerate.
I tend to be hungry all the time too,
I'm starting to thing that I confuse uncomfortable intestines with hunger, and eat because I have pain and have pain because I eat......
There is not alot in the third podcast (the kresser one).
To summarise the first one.
If you are metabolically challenged (overweight/blood sugars etc) then it might be a good idea, if you are stressed/adrenally fatigued etc. it might be a bad idea, and if you are digestively challenged then you might want to modify it a bit, not a total fast, some easily digested liquid like bone broth.

And don't be dogmatic, if it feels bad, don't think you have to 'push through', back off and re-evaluate..

Th second podcast is the one I recommend, even though there is almost nothing about IF.

i have not heard of either, nothing a bodybuilder says has any relevance for me.
Am interested in keto as I feel like hat I think clearer on keto, but at the moment I find low carb (intermittent keto) suits me rather than very low carb/keto.

Best of luck...
