  1. Would you be ok, if I posted this on the SCD facebook group I am a member of?

  2. I see that Parmesan is on two lists, “eat freely”, and “eat occasionally”. Is there a mistake? Not sure how to interpret this. Also, what about goat cheese?

    1. Yes, this is a mistake. It should be eat freely. I need to make a correction to the chart. Goat cheese is not allowed.

    1. My version of Breaking the Vicious Cycle book says Guyere is illegal, so there is a discrepancy there – I have the 7th edition from 1999. I’m surprised the website doesn’t say anything about it since it is listed as illegal in the book – or at least the earlier editions. I’m hoping someone with a later edition can let me know if the list was updated in the books.
