Breaking the Vicious Cycle – The Specific Carbohydrate Diet

I have been on the diet for 3 months now. You will have to give up a lot of foods that you love–but that don’t love you back! The Specific Carbohydrate Diet prohibits all grains, lactose, and sucrose sugarwhich leaves you with: A good starting point, but really read “Paleo Solution” and other Primal diet books to get the holistic understanding of removing bad food from your diet and lifestyle changes are just as important; which “Breaking the Vicious Cycle” does not stress lifestyle changes ie: I feel relatively certain that we will be trying some of those soon.

At least that’s been my experience. Lots of cooking from scratch!!! There are some interesting recipes here hottschall.

I am off my medications they weren’t helping me anyway thanks to following this diet. I even have some hope that I can eventually add back some carbs and foods I’m currently allergic to once I’ve healed in a year or two. Complex carbohydrates which are disaccharides double molecules and polysaccharides chain molecules are not vicous.


My symptoms have vanished, except for twice when I let someone else cook something for me. It’s not going to be easy. After the history, the book vickous on to describe what the Specific Carbohydrate is and how it might help someone who follows it.

It points out how dietary intervention with the Specific Carbohydrate Diet addresses and often overcomes conditions thought to be at the root of autism spectrum disorders as well as some cases of epilepsy and attention deficit Disorder ADD.

Jul 26, Kevin rated it it was amazing. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. That isn’t my goal. The information is scattered around and not organized properly I would like to know what to eat when I have stomach trouble, what to eat when situation is under control, what to introduce later on Published August by Kirkton Press first published August While this book is not specifically written about autism, there is much evidence that the Specific Carbohydrate Diet will be beneficial to people with autism.

Breaking the Vicious Cycle: Intestinal Health Through Diet

My typical dinner used to be pizza, pasta, or sandwiches, always followed by something sweet–candy, cookies, cake. Researching about breaoing causes of celiac and other gastro diseases online, I ran across several references to this book. I think even a l Well, it was good enough for me to read in one evening!

The reason I don’t have it as a 4 or 5 star is because this diet is so strict and it advocates for a lifelong lifestyle change.

Since I’ve only had intermittent results ma I finished with this book a while ago. Again, highly recommended for those suffering from gastro diseases. And, if you find you really just want to have a piece of your best friend’s wedding cake–I say, bteaking for it–if you are ready for the consequences.


When I was first sick and hospitalized with a severe case of IBD, a family member provided me this book. I bought this book to get an idea of what the Specific Carbohydrate Diet is like, since I’m dealing with some digestive issues that a paleo diet has not been sufficient in healing. I’m a bit confused gotschall how one implements this diet beyond the intro diet the first days, for which the book does offer a meal planand how to add new foods. I finished with this book a while ago.

This is a resource highly recommended by people whose opinion I trust. This book should be given to anyone with IBS. Oct 29, Debra cyxle it really liked it Gottshall No more quick snack of chips or even power bars or other “healthy” processed food.

The Book – Breaking the Vicious Cycle

breakinb Very informative, answered many questions about gut health and how to enhance it without being pushy or having a sales pitch. I really thought the book was very technical and at times it was hard for me but I did get a lot of understanding of the problem with carbs. I am not some amazing person who has tons of culinary skill or patience with cooking, shopping or not eating out.

It is good food for thought. The bulk of the book is recipes and appendices, so this is a fairly quick read. You can make home-made yogurt and find some good cheeses avoid the soft ones, go with the hard ones. Apr 07, Breaing rated it it was ok Shelves: Giving this a middle of the road rating out of lack of experience with the diet.
