The Specific Carbohydrate Diet...
So I’ve been wondering – has anyone heard of the Elaine Gottschall Breaking the Vicious Cycle Diet? Has anyone tried it? The Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America is looking into this diet known as the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, and there are loads of blogs and youtubes going up consistently about it and how people have claimed to have found a cure in it. I’ve tried it. I’ve met Dr. Ron Hoffman at a medical conference in California last year (He wrote the forward, and he told me to my face that it works). I’ve spoken to Lucy Rossett (she owns Lucys Kitchen Shop, where you can buy a lot of the things to help make some of the food prep easier, like a yogurt maker, etc) and she says the diet cured her colitis... Now, I know there are loads of false claims and Im not saying this is one of them, but I wonder who else has tried this diet? And have you had success? I wonder what research will show when it comes out…
