I did SCD for about a month with him and I remember loosing 6 lbs the first week. I think cutting all the gluten out is what caused me to loose weight so fast. I really need to start eating better. I am fine with dinner but it is lunchtime at work that kills me.
that's great that it helped him! my friend started her family on SCD and her son, who was on the spectrum, is like a new kid! he was always angry and affectionate and now he is a happy kid who gives hugs. it also helped clear her other son's eczema.

feingold talks about salicylates being culprits, and im pretty sure apples are an issue with W.
SCD is temporary too. you take a ton of foods out of your diet and basically start over from scratch and slowly add back more and more.

Processed food makes me feel so sick though so I try to avoid it as much as possible. I do eat gluten though... Anyways, I'd love it if you posted exactly what you ate or are eating for a couple days. I may try to be a copycat.
i really suck at meal planning. i feel like when i plan a meal i spend way too much money on ingredients. i usually just cook based off of what i have in my kitchen.
i probably spend way too much time cooking, some meals are quicker than others of course. i do a lot of "one pot" meals, and those are usually quick.
i can post what we eat every night if you want. i actually did plan tonight's meal, but that is rare.
tonight we are having vietnamese style pork ribs and spring rolls. spring rolls are one of the only ways i can get Vincent to eat raw vegetables. <---Vincent picked the "happy faces."
