Starting all over again: The SCD intro diet

It's been a while. In the last months, I grew accustomed to the low-carb diet, and started being negligent: testing more and more trigger foods, not counting carbs... Eventually, I found out that some of my symptoms were back.

IBS diets: the dreaded 3-month flare

I already mentioned in a previous article that, although my low-carb diet works wonders, I had quite a bad time at the beginning of June. Fortunately it only lasted a few days. Unfortunately, I had the most unpleasant surprise to see symptoms come back at the beginning of September. What is happening here? Well, it seems to be a well-known issue with diets that lower carb consumption: Every three-months, the symptoms tend to come back.

Low-carb diet and muscle: what you should know

I have been advocating for the low-carb diet on this blog for quite a while now, and I feel like it's time to play the devil's advocate a bit. I still think that you MUST try this diet if you suffer from IBS, because it IS a life-changer, but I recently found out that too much low-carb can become problematic.

Learning to live again: 6 months into the low-carb diet

It's hard for me to believe that I have been able to maintain such a restrictive diet for quite some time now. I had a lot of ups, and a few downs. But thanks to it, I am now faced with a new challenge: forget in the first place that I had IBS.

Although there is no general agreement in the scientific community regarding what causes IBS, it is interesting to notice that a theory comes back very often.

A review of what we know about bacteria infections possibly causing IBS,  and why a cure already exists if this theory holds.

Am I cured of IBS? 2 months into the low carb diet

It has now been two months since I started the low-carbohydrate diet, after having read about an austrian doctor who cured Crohn's sufferers with it (check his book, it's a great read: life without bread).
I feel it is now time for a first review. I don't want to make you wait, so here goes: it has changed my condition in an incredible way. In fact, I am beginning to think that I can get cured within a few months. If you want detailed results, and advice how YOU can start the diet and get better, this article is for you.

A quick update

Right now I am in the middle of the low-carb diet, and I don't feel ready to write a whole article about it yet. But just to let you know, results are extremely encouraging, you may want to give it a go.

So as I had nothing new to tell, I decided to create a page for newcomers: the idea is to list the most efficient ways I know of to deal with irritable bowel syndrome, without having to read the whole blog.
You can find it in the tab "new here?" above, or you can click here.

One more thing, I'd like to thank everyone who takes the time to write a comment. This is what makes blogs so interesting, the interaction! So don't hesitate to leave a message!
