After suffering from colitis for 2 years brought on by the pregnancy of my daughter, I just happened upon a blog of someone mentioning this diet. I read several reviews on how great this book was, and based on it's cheap price, I decided I had nothing to lose. It's a helluva lot cheaper than the medication I was on! I have a background in science and healthcare so when I read the book, it made complete sense to me so I decided to devote myself to it whole-heartedly and it has paid off! I feel like a new person. The diet is strict but I'm not in pain anymore or exhausted so it's not that hard for me to follow. I have tried quite a few recipes in the book and they are delicious. My mom is diabetic and she can eat them too. My husband and little kids even like them, BONUS!! This book has opened me up to a whole new world of living that makes me feel healthier and happier than I have been in some time. Do yourself a huge favor and give it a shot. I am off my medications (they weren't helping me anyway) thanks to following this diet. The book also references some websites that are helpful for SCD followers.

I was given Elaine Gottschall's book, "Breaking the Vicious Cycle." I stuck with the instructions and within only a few days, much to my amazement, the bleeding and diarrhea stopped! I've been on this diet for 5 months, following it faithfully and feeling wonderful. All symptoms have disappeared! I am a new person with energy as I never had before.
