I went on this diet based on the reviews...it took a while, lots of patience and a lot of time spent cooking. No more eating out and increased food costs.
However about six months into the diet I really noticed improvements. (Started seeing improvement about 2 months in)
It has now been 9months since I started and I have been very good. I have definitely been more slack these past couple months, eating out and not being as strict on sugar and other things. I still am very careful on not eating any flour and try to limit other grains and sugars.
Overall, I have found that this has been completely successful in dealing with the symptoms of my Crones. I have no doubt that if I strictly adhered to this diet for over a year, my body would completely heal...I just have been lazy and at this point in life I am good with just keeping the symptoms at bay.
Side note: Supplement this book with information from SCDLifestyle.com. It fleshes out the diet more and helped me to figure out some triggers.
Also, I took a large amount of natural supplements from "Stand Process" that focused on intestinal/digestive health.
I give it as a gift whenever I meet people experiencing health issues due to Crohn's or ulcerative colitis.
Everyone I know has to hit rock bottom before undertaking the dietary change because it is a huge headache.
