After a year of trying, I have finally convinced my mother to try out the SCD for her severe IBS. She's on day 3 of the intro diet and having good results already. I think she's about ready to start adding things but neither of us has had time to read the whole book yet and I have some questions that I can't find the answers to on the website or from what I've read in the book. Can someone help?

First, when is it okay to add the SCD yoghurt? I made some and then made it into cream cheese because we couldn't get any dry curd cottage cheese but I read that she shouldn't eat the straight yoghurt at first.

2. If adding frozen vegetables to the diet do we need to be careful about corn? I know many frozen veggies are dusted with corn and corn is illegal, but nothing I've read discussed this issue.

3. Same thing with spices - which are listed as legal but many have corn added.

4. Any tips for transition from intro diet to the regular SCD diet? What I've read hasn't offered a lot of advice. I guess just start adding things??

TIA -

Reintroduction is also different for each person. Someone who dosn't have a problem with dairy can introduce yogurt sooner than I can. It will probably be quite awhile for me. Whereas I can tolerate raw and fibrous things just fine and for others that will take time. The link given on the Pecan Bread site is a great rule of thumb, though.

Thanks so much for the replies. The chart is really helpful.

She tried the cream cheese made from the homemade yoghurt on Saturday. Then yesterday was a really bad day - terrible diarrhea, fatigue, dizziness, nausea. I'm guessing maybe it was a die off reaction but I think she's scared off from the yogurt and the cream cheese now. But she doesn't seem ready to progress off the intro diet even though today is now 5 days on the intro diet. So I guess we'll just proceed depending on her symptoms and not worry about time frames.

Thanks again.
