    New to SCD without a real food plan.

    Katie Jester asked a question:

    Getting tired of plain old beans??

    I saw this done on a cooking show and wanted to try it, since beans, after a while, can get pretty boring. All you need is a bean of your choice (canned), I usually use small white beans since the...

    So I've been doing SCD since August, and honestly have not seen any results. The only reason i stayed true to it is because I don't have to get on an elliptical for an hour 5 days a week just to m...

    Why aren't olives allowed? I know they are a fruit, but there's no sugar or anything in an olive and if we can use olive oil, why can't we eat them?

    Are Pork Rinds ok?

    Just read the ingredients. If all it is is fried pork skins and maybe some salt, then they're probably fine. But even so, I'd stay away from them.
