What convinced you to start the Specific Carbohydrate Diet?
For me, it was just a few printed words.
I read “Breaking The Vicious Cycle” twice… but I was still deeply afraid the diet wouldn’t work for me and didn’t start.
Until late one night when I was stuck on the toilet and realized I never read the forward to the book.
I had skipped over it… twice.
And that’s when a Doctor convinced me to try The Specific Carbohydrate Diet…
So when I read about his clinical experience with SCD it was just enough to push me into starting the diet.
He convinced me to change my life… and it is the best decision I’ve ever made!
And in today’s podcast, we had the honor of interviewing Dr. Hoffman all about his experience treating patients with SCD.
