DIET AND SPORTS SOFT DRINKS

Diet and sports soft drinks

Update to 2004 edition from Elaine:
Diet soft drinks are permitted occasionally. Those sweetened with aspartame or Nutri-Sweet may sometimes contain lactose and should be avoided if possible. However, if this is the only type available, one per week is permitted. Diet soft drinks sweetened with saccharin need not be limited to only one a week: 2-3 weekly would be permissible.
DO NOT USE DIET SOFT DRINKS SWEETENED WITH ANY OTHER SWEETENER
-
some can aggravate intestinal problems to a great extent. Bottled water without any additive is permissible but those which have been marketed as "sport drinks," or have added fiber, vitamins, or minerals should be avoided.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
