    I have celiac too! I was finally diagnosed a little over a year ago after suffering from migraines and severe stomach problems my entire life. I went to so many doctors and specialists and none of them could figure it out (I was told by one doctor that my problems were cause by cinnamon ?!?!). If you haven't read Breaking the Vicious Cycle I really recommend it. There is a great chapter on celiac. The author claims that celiac is actually caused by all grains (not just gluten) and dairy. It is totally true for me. I cut out grains and dairy shortly after my diagnoses and tried to add them back in this summer and I got soooooo sick!

    The scd diet is for people with damaged stomachs from celiac, crohns, colitis etc. Part of the diet is to heal sibo and leaky gut and all the other problems that come with GI issues. So just by following the diet, for an extended period of time, all those issues should be resolved. Plus, the diet recommends lots of bone broth!I'm sorry that this is such a departure from the ketosis topic.

    Just wanted to add that I got all my info from my doc and by reading Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.

    Hi, it's to encourage die off but also, according to the scd diet, people with damaged stomachs can't digest foods that aren't monosachirides and the undigested food hangs out in the stomach and ferments which causes sibo. However, fruits and nuts are monosachirides but they can be difficult for damaged stomachs to digest and can also cause fermentation in the stomach and, like you said, eliminating them encourages die off. By repopulation do you mean eating ferments? The scd recommends eating fermented yogurt and veggies, unfortunately I can't tolerate either for right now so I take enzymes and a soil based probiotic.

    Hey, Bronnyd I have sibo too and follow the scd diet along with whole 30. I can't tolerate dairy so I don't do the yogurt. I know that with sibo you can only eat monosaccharides so that means sweet potatoes are out. You can eat fruit and nuts on the scd diet, but only if your stomach can handle them. My stomach is really irritated by fruit and nuts so I'm kind of doing keto by default. According to my doc most people with sibo also have candida and the natural sugars in fruit feed the candida. So maybe you should ask your doc about it. I hope that helps.

    I'm glad you started this topic. I'm doing no fruits, no nuts, no squash, no roots because they are all too irritating for my stomach. I am doing a lot of green veggies and I'm not counting carbs, so maybe I won't be in ketosis, but I am going to follow this thread. Your posts are very motivating!
