. As I had beef and mince last night, it might be that is causing my damaged intestines pain in the pushing process thorugh. I'll keep an eye on this next time I have beef or a 'heavy' meet dish.

Bowel Movements - 3 - A bit of M visible today, but still no sign of B. Not sure what is causing me to go to the bathroom today after meals. We'll see how tomorrow goes. Something is not agreeing with me. But is could also be a virus as my boy is off sick today...

Weight -
62.4 kgs(137.6lb s)

Thoughts / Problems on SCD diet
  • On Day 10 I felt really gassy, but I'm not sure what has caused this except for maybe the small portion of coleslaw
  • The stomach / intestine gurgles seem to be very much lessening. Looking back over the last 6 months, they seemed to be at their height at Christmas when I seriously stuffed myself with sweets (lollies) and cake.
  • Summer has arrived in the South of France and I was slight pink at the end of the day. You'd think at my age (and the fact that I live in Australia normally) that I'd know better!
  • On Day 11, I really wanted to give up on the diet and go and stuff myself with bread and sweets. This isn't like giving up smoking, where the craving only last for 30 secs. But I'm still hanging in there. Someone once told me that it takes 3 weeks for the brain to change to a new way of thinking :( .... oh well, half way there.


  1. You are one dedicated diva! Keep up the good work. I give you credit, it is so hard for me to stick to a diet. I tried this one before, but I had no luck. I think my colon was at a point of no return.

  2. Keep on truckin'! I'm watching and waiting hopefully as you do all the leg work on this one. I've looked into it a little since you started; really REALLY looks tough. You're doing great. Also think I should add that you are the ONLY reason I felt good about going through with my colonoscopy last week, so thank you so much. I always appreciate your comments and getting to see what you're up to.

  3. hi ya girls...thanks for the support :D. My diet is pretty bland..I seem to be just eating the same things day in day out...but my normal diet is kind of the same in that I eat the things I like all the time anyway. The killer is after dinner...I used to go made on lollies and ice cream...but heck, I gave up coffee 2 years ago for UC, so I'm going to try and see where I know what the worst thing is for me....having nothing to crunch on. I'm looking into that now and I've found some more SCD receipe web sites.
