SCD Legal/Illegal List

The Specific Carb Diet allows simple carbohydrates. The science behind the diet says that some bodies are unable to digest complex carbohydrates, which (when undigested) damage the lining of your intestines. By eliminating these foods, your intestines heal, and you are able to manage Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's, Celiac, and other digestive diseases. It has also been shown to improve symptoms of autism.

In a nutshell, all gluten/grains/starches are illegal, including potatoes and corn. Dairy is also illegal, with the exception of some hard cheeses.

This is THE official list from the Breaking the Vicious Cycle website.
