This diet is described in the book



Elaine Gottschall

There are specific carbohydrates which can be trouble makers in the digestive system.  Many people  suffer from gastric distresses ranging from mild to more serious disorders such as Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis, IBS, Chronic Diarrhea and Celiac Disease. The purpose of the SCDiet is to eliminate certain carbohydrates and cause a healthy, natural, controlled remission.
