I have Crohn's and IBS. The Crohn's is mild and inactive, and I'm not sure IBS alone is what's causing my current symptoms (which is, to put it mildly, the worst bloating in the history of mankind...I've had times where my stomach felt so full of air I literally had trouble swallowing...and it happens *every* *single* *day*, every time I eat, no matter what I eat). I'm at a complete loss so I thought I would try the specific carbohydrate diet.My problem is one of vanity. I don't want or need to gain weight. I started exercising a lot a few months ago, and I have worked really hard to get my figure to where it is. But my diet before SCD was much lower in calories. In many ways, I think my diet is even healthier now than it was (though it certainly wasn't bad before). It forced me to cut out a few key things which might have been bad for weight loss anyway: gum, those sugar-free Icebreakers candies (I ate them by the dozen), diet sodas/drinks, sugar substitutes, all processed foods (though I didn't eat that many, mostly just in the form of lunchmeat and veggie burgers), and to be honest, the dozen or so simethicone chewables and half dozen Gaviscon acid reducing tablets I was taking per day. But I find myself pigging out on these delicious blueberry almond flour muffins I made, dried fruit, etc. I'm going from a diet that was very low fat and low calorie (1100-1400 calories per day...I should maybe mention I'm a 4'11.5" female) to one very high in fat due to all the nuts and cheese and oil this diet involves (probably 1500-1900 calories per day at this point). Is anyone else in my situation? What has been your experience with SCD? Did you gain weight? If not, how did you avoid it? I mean, these muffins are so gooooood!!!Thanks for hearing me outI know my health is more important than maintaining my athletic body fat percentage, but I want to enjoy the hard work I put into my physique a little longer!
