I'd like to get my intestinal ducks in a row, too. We are going to try to get pregnant after we move this summer.
So, I'm really thinking about the scd diet. Can't do the dairy, eggs or nuts, though. And I'm thinking we'd probably have to go off of it when we move until we get settled in.
So, a few questions.
Do you think the diet has to be followed exactly in the different stages to work, or could I just switch what we eat to scd legal foods? (I've gotten the book twice through interlibrary loan, and I really don't want to do it again. I guess I should just break down and buy it.)
Do I absolutely have to give up my convenience foods? Right now they are just canned tomato sauce, canned tomatoes, gerber diced baby food fruit, and the Applegate farms lunchmeat and hotdogs? I am guessing the answer is yes, but I really don't want to give them up right now.
Can you still see results with some foods and/or supplements that are illegal?
And how long would it take before you think a child would start eating the foods served to them. Right now, dd will eat meats with no problems, but will not eat any veggies at all and only sometimes eats apples, pears and peaches.
And how would I get the cod liver oil in her? Right now she only does it in oatmeal. (She doesn't drink anything but water.)
And would it be constipating for how long? I've noticed recently that dd tends to get constipated unless she has oatmeal or brown rice regularly.
I am slowly moving towards doing this. It just takes me a while to gather information and commit.
Thanks in advance for the help.
