My first 6 months on SCD

A couple weeks into the diet I was feeling much better, after a few stumbles (SCD is a skill), around the 10 week mark I was really settling into a groove and feeling amazing!

  • Took me 3 months to get through all the phases
  • Saw major improvements when I added digestive enzymes and betaine HCL
  • Saw another major big jump when I added SCD legal yogurt
  • Supplements @ 6 months: Multivitamin, B-complex, B12, Probiotics, Digestive Enzymes, Betaine HCL, Vitamin D3, Iodine, and Zinc (specific to my situation)

My 1 year Update (How SCD has changed me)

After a year, I was at a whole new level of health I never knew I could achieve, I got bored and started playing with things.

  • Spent 3-4 months with perfect poops and amazing health
  • Got my smelling back after I cut out all dairy (except butter)
  • After a year small cheats didn’t affect me much
  • Unhappy that my stomach acid levels were not returning so I decided to start experimenting
  • Great first year, never pooped better, learned to cook, and doubled my energy levels
