  Just got home from a 4 day trip to MIL's. Yep, I survived another thanksgiving. I ate more than I am use to eating but tried very hard to stay away from what I should not eat. Of course this means all the good stuff was off limits. My wife made me a sugar free pumpkin pie though so I was all smiles at dinner time. Yep, nothing like strained pumpkin with splenda when every one else is having chocolate cake and pecan pie. Yep I just sat there eating pumpkin mush with a big smile on my face. Yummmm. Didn't eat the candy or the nuts or the dressing. Nope not me,,just dry turkey and pumpkin mush pie. Even got to bring the rest of the pumpkin pie home. Funny ,, no one else wanted to share it with me. Lucky guy I am.

I love pumpkin pie! Now why couldn't you have stuffing? That is usually safe for me!

No potatoes without milk or butter? Or gravy made from broth and pieces of turkey?
I'm sorry you didn't get to eat much...Thanksgiving used to be a holiday I really looked forward to until this year hah.
I'm glad you're not reporting a huge flare from what you did eat though.

Nope ,,I did very well in fact. My limits were self imposed. I am teetering on the brink of having to use insulin. My doc has tried all meds to controle my diabetes and we keep coming up short so I am really trying to avoid all sugar and also lose weight. This is very hard to do with what I ,can, eat and what I need to eat to lose weight. Crohns diet and diabetes diet are about as different as day and night. Anyway doc really pick a bad time of year to ask me to lose weight but I am trying. Any magic tricks,,short of a flare, you guys can suggest ????

I like the south beach diet book and just avoid any recipes w/ fake sugar. There were some crohns friendly/diabetes friendly diets. SCD would probably also be diabetes friendly.

I found out I had Crohn's in August of '06.  I was immediately put on Pred which gave me steroid induced diabetes within 2 months.  Talk about a total life altering existence.  6 months later I found out Crohn's gave me kidney stones so another diet was ordered.  It took a long time for me to adjust my eating habits to keep blood sugar steady, crohn's in remission and kidney stones small.  turn

I know what you mean Vicky . I feel like I walk a tight rope between the kidney stones and blood sugar and crohns diet. Sometimes I feel like I cant win this one, but I really dont want to be on insulin. Fitzy, do they have a cajun version of the south beach diet? Sort of a ,deep, south beach diet ?
