I was shocked at the amount of glowing reviews the Specific Carbohydrate Diet had received but was still in disbelief that this could actually work. I am four weeks in and have gone from symptoms that were quite debilitating to now being at the point where I at times forget I have a chronic disease. Those with Crohn's know how great a feeling that is or would be for those that haven't experienced it.
