How to Use Psychology to Beat Any SCD Setback

Today sucks. Today I don’t feel good. I have been on the SCD Diet for almost two years and I still have bad days every once in a while. I have to preface that the last few months my digestion has been flawless – nothing but better and better days. Then all of the sudden last night I started feeling bad and today I have been in and out of the bathroom at work. Today is an SCD setback for me.

First up the good news is kale and I are friends, no digestion issues whatsoever. Now for the bad news, kale chips are apparently my cooking Achilles heal.
