Hey All, I have been on the SCD for a couple of months now and am feeling some improvement,, I have seen a couple of posts on here about the SCD diet in the past by some people out there finding some relief with it... My question is how do people maintain their weight on the diet, is it a given that people will loose weight on this diet???It seems that most of the typical foods one would eat to put a bit of weight on aren't allowed, dont get me wrong i am enjoying having less (less severe) symptoms on this diet but am already a lean guy and dont want to loose weight, I have kept an eye on my weight and it seems to be slowly reducing which isn't what i need... Please anyone out there who is on or had success or knows about this diet i would love some advice, meals/foods to add a bit of weight etc, thank you

Mr Bumwe try using our "Search" function (towards the right side of the light blue tool bar above us here) to find other posts about trying to gain or maintain weight. This topic comes up frequently and I am sure you will find many posts asking the same as you have here.

As long as you get enough calories you can maintain weight on any diet. You may need to count your calories and see what portion sizes you need to get enough to maintain a healthy weight.The calories don't care which food they came from.

SCD's get most of it's calories from protein, feremented dairy, nuts and good fats. However SCD does not go into too much detail on the good fats like Olive Oil, avacodoes, coconut oil, flax oil, butter. Make sure you are getting around 30% of your calories from good fats and it will help stablize your weight. Add some olive oil to your salads, Eat some avacodes mixed in with eggs or just as a snack. One other thing about SCD is they say after a while you will find your ideal weight. You might gain or loose. Most importantly as long as your improving and you have energy your on the right track.Good luck and keep up the good work.

thanks for the replies all,I had a flick through past posts too , thanks for pointing that out and I have also found quite a few recipes which are a bit heavier on butter and oil so have been adding that to the daily routine,,,,I know there is no easy fix for us ibsers and similer but so far I am feeling better on this diet, energy and reduced symptons not an overnight miracle but definately feeling like I am onto something good on this..
