I make my own mayo at home. Everything that I use is slow carb friendly so I don't limit the amount that I use. Here is the recipe I use...
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard ( make sure this doesn't have any sugar]
3/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Combine the egg, garlic, lemon juice and mustard in the container of a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, then blend on low speed while pouring oil into the blender in a fine stream as the mixture emulsifies and thickens.
Mayo is similar to cheese and butter which are in the "grey" area of SCD. Why? Not because it's about lactose (butter and cheese) etc. It's just because these things are almost pure FATS. Mixing fat with carbs, especially low GI carbs (beans) elevating your blood sugar for extended period of time isn't a good thing. Fats become available in the blood stream in a few hours after ingesting, but low GI carbs also provide not a sharp but quite long insulin spike. So, the body has a perfect opportunity to keep that fat from mayo/cheese/butter.
I personally would recommend eating fatty stuff like mayo and beans in separate meals. Maybe 1 tbsp of mayo doesn't bring any harm but it's so easy and tempting to overdo. So, frying eggs -- add butter or some good quality mayo (ideally, homemade, 100% without carbs). Eating beans -- stick to lean proteins and veggies with no extra fat like mayo.
It all smells purely low-carb/keto, not SCD, but the mechanics of digestions are the same in all diets.
When I was on SCD I avoided fats mostly and lose as a monster (btw, I'm quite lean already, around 10% BF). Fat are tempting but safe when you're fat adopted but I'm not quite sure whether it's possible to become fat adopted on SCD. First of all, SCD isn't designed for it. To me, SCD is the middle option, kinda a variation of the Zone Diet when you still consule sizable amount of carbs (beans) with low fat and high protein. Plus being in the permanent but painless calorie deficit allows to lose BF.
Fat is not an enemy on SCD but don't play with it too much.
Doesn't Mayo violate Rule#1 from the book? "Avoid white carbohydrates (or anything that can be white). I know it's low on the glycemic index, but I couldn't find information about the insulin response it produces. Milk is also low on the glycemic index, but causes a significant insulinemic response (page 82) which is why we avoid it. I'm curious about whether or not mayo has the same hidden dangers.
