Some symptoms return


This sure is an unwelcome surprise... I'm going to play it safe and eat boring food till I get better.

I completely understand about eating applesauce two days straight. When my symptoms started acting up, I would go a whole day or two without eating, hoping that would clear things up. Of course, I wasn't on SCD yet, so as soon as I started eating again, my symptoms would come back. I think I'm barely eating 1,000 calories a day right now as well, which is probably why I'm losing weight so fast. I've lost 8 pounds since starting SCD and I've only been on it for 2 weeks! Health wise, your only supposed to lose 1-2 pounds a week. Anyhow, I truly believe you are going to feel better before having to visit your doctor. I'll pray for ya! Good luck!

Thanks for the well wishes. I was doing so well for years now! But I guess on-the-job stress can't really be helped. If an environment is negative, its only a matter of time before it reaches everyone. Unfortunately for me, it comes with more risks than the average Joe (or Jane).

SCD is actually designed to make you gain weight. When your symptoms start clearing up, you can start making baked goodies with almond flour and you can start gaining back healthy weight.

I gained my weight back with the help of SCD peanut butter brownies, but I can't suggest that now because of that salmonella thing going around. I'm not going to eat peanuts/peanut products for a long time. The last thing I want is colitis AND salmonella.
