Carmen Sturdy, the powerful voice behind the website Every Last Bite, has always had a passion for food and cooking for friends and family. She became an online leader in delivering sought-after recipes that comply with the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), then broadened her scope to include recipes for many dietary lifestyles.
Carmen knows firsthand the benefits of following the SCD. At the age of 26, she was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis (an autoimmune disease), and her doctors prescribed strong medication.
At her worst, she was taking 32 pills a day and suffering terrible side effects from the medication, including hair loss, facial swelling, insomnia, weight gain, exhaustion, and a depleted immune system.
At that point, she did extensive research on alternative ways to treat the disease and discovered the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. After six months on the SCD, she was in remission and was able to slowly wean herself off her medication. She has been in medication-free remission for five years.
Carmen aims to help others by sharing her story and her delectable recipes. She firmly believes that with the right blend of ingredients and techniques, good food can and should take center stage of any diet program.
