TURNIPS

Turnips

In the most recent printing of BTVC (Ninth Printing - May 2002), turnips
were moved from the 'allowed' list to the 'not allowed' list. Many new
SCDers found they were having trouble with turnips, in part because they
are quite fibrous, and because they contain inulin. For those that are
eating them and doing fine, they may continue. For those who are just
beginning the diet, they should wait until their symptoms are in remission
before introducing turnips, and then only with great care.
For those who have been on the diet for some time, and begin to find they
are having problems, if turnips are part of their repertoire, they should
be removed.

This single book has been more informative than any doctor I've spoken with. The opening chapters outline underlying causes for these various illnesses and go into great detail. This gave me the tools to better approach my doctors and explain what was going on to family members.
