Hi Guys
 
Wondering here what is it food wise that you love to eat and you know you cant! but you still eat it cause you cannot resist it What is that indulgence that you cant say NO to?
 
(im new to CD so i am curious on what you surrender to everytime you see it?)
 
For me at moment i eat sensibly until i see Doc for 1st time in few days, but i have had marshmellow coated in Choc and covered in coconut that was my indulgence that i have paid the price for afterwards....
 
Whats Yours?

There's only one food I break my rules for (rarely). Twice baked potato soup from Charleston's. It's a problem because i'm doing no-fiber and the potatoes still have the skin on them.

I only break that rule because the repercussions are very mild and temporary.

Thankfully, I can eat as much chocolate as I like - and do.

Quiznos sandwiches. The bread has sesame seeds and the filling isn't so great either. I try to pick off most of the seeds, but with my stricture it's still a risky proposition.

I also have no problem with chocolate, thank goodness.
Hoping to stay in remission after the birth of a healthy baby girl. On Pentasa during my pregnancy, went med-free 2 months to nurse (stupid), but back on Pentasa and still nursing.

This is how goofy I am. My wife just shakes her head at me.

Funnel Cake.

Like at the fair? I found this incredible recipe online, I put EVOO in a little pan, I only use organic flour and raw milk, free range local eggs, but still folks, its Funnel Cake! I don't dowse it in powdered sugar though, I prefer the natural nuttiness of maple syrup.

No real issues, or at least, none I'm willing to admit to!!!

Salad with blue cheese dressing, crust from my boyfriend's pizza, chocolate covered coconut macaroons from godiva, uncle ben's wild rice with blue cheese...
So many things really. BUT! I have noticed that digestive enzymes will help mitigate some of the painful aftereffects.
They've made it so that lately I can just tolerate a cheeseburger and fries from Five Guys. But they use natural, gluten free ingredients (excluding the buns) and cut their fries right there. They only fry them in peanut oil too so no diary or unhealthy animal fat.

Well ive just started a second course of steroids which i was greatful for as i knew it would kick start my appetite big time (im very thin anyway so eating is good news!) I cant stop eating evrything i shouldnt at the start though, Burger King, Mcdonalds, Pizza. I lap it all up. Is it really that bad to do this. I generally dont feel bad after eating it, a little bloated maybe so so fulfilled and content LOL. I can thank the roids for my appetite but is it really that bad to eat all this junk? , its not like im doing it forever and while im feeling good i may as well cram it in eh?!

It may not seem like it's hurting you, but things like that can be doing far more damage than we realize...the ingredients in them just aren't good for you and many of them e.g. sugar, fat, additives, etc. exacerbate inflammation. That's one the biggest mistakes is eating whatever you like when on steroids...I ended up right back in the hospital because of it :(

Red vines... They don't seem to hurt me, but how can they NOT be bad??? Salad... with blue cheese dressing. Strawberries. Been eating too many strawberries lately. Bad with the seeds... But, I am all large intestine so my worry with the seeds is one getting caught in an ulcer. The doc/nurse in the hospital said that was not something to worry enough about to not eat them. I've been told otherwise, so I consider them a big splurge!

Gah!  I just polished off a large-ish bag of The Vines!  ...though they don't seem to give me much problems, it is just a huge sugar rush.  I cannot stop eating them.  I usually only splurge on them when we go to the movies.  I tell my companion(s) I will not open the bag of Vines until the previews are over and the feature movie starts.  Once the bag is open I will chain eat them until they are gone.  I will not prevent anyone from having some of my Vines, but I will probably not think to offer them, so if you want any...you better ask before I've eaten them all.
 
Food that usually "brings me low" and I "cannot resist" is Crab Rangoon w/ Sweet & Sour Sauce from our fave local Chinese Restaurant. 
The only 'good' thing about Crohn's is it has given me a legit excuse to no longer eat at any fast-food place.  Well, other than Arby's or Sonic, of course...though I am glad I no longer have to argue about not wanting to eat at McD's, Burger King, KFC, Taco Bell or Wendy's.  Surprisingly, Hardy's has changed their menu and greatly improved the ingredients of their foods and I can now easily tolerate a burger there.
heidi   =^..^=
I have the ability of single-minded determination and accurate project focu....Hey, look, a cat!
 
Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry......I'd much rather laugh.
2001 Dx'd with UC.  No remission.  No improvement with Remicade.  5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon.  Dx changed to Crohn's.  Remission for 8-9wks after surgery, symptoms returned after resuming 6MP.  Changed maintenance med to Methotrexate (MTX) and had great results with IM injections.  Nausea and symptoms returning with oral MTX.  Switched back to IM injections and am slowly improving.

Oh yes i know i should definately knock off the junk food! Im not usually eating it everyday or anything. Its just the steroids have brought out my craving and think its made all the more tempting because the appetite was so low. As the steroids taper down so does my craving for all and everything so its not like im on a burger fix everyday. I understand we have to watch what we eat definately but in a week or so i know i will be back or a "normal" diet. Treats will be once every couple of weeks soon enough. Must say it is a chorwe trying to keep an eye on things when you seem to have no problems atall. Always the way i guess - DISCIPLINE!

Nut butters! They don't bother my crohn's, but apparently I'm allergic to some of them. I had a bad reaction (ER visit) after eating a tiny amount of cashew butter for the first time. Subsequent blood tests showed Class I to Class IV allergies to several nuts. Almonds came back as Class II, even though I eat almond butter everyday without issue. My PCP said to to stay away from ALL nuts, but I'm still eating almond butter everyday. I see a real allergist this Friday, and I'm really hoping that things will end up working out so that I can continue to eat at least one type of nut butter (Brazil nuts might be a possibility).

Other than the nut butters, I behave myself when it comes to food.

I'm starting the SCD, (hoping my yogurt works out.) and I find myself craving popcorn. I feel like I'm doing better without grains or grasses (I'm allergic to grass so it makes sense that rice could be an issue). Soda (diet) is my big vice, and I still have a cup of coffee every morning. BUT! I haven't had any diarherrea since I stopped eating sugar, and the grains/grasses. Less pain too (although now I feel kind of like someone stuffed a tender football inside of me. )
Finally diagnosised with crohns. Psoriasis, rosecea, sebborhea, contact dermatitis, food allergies.

I've gotten a lot better with my cheating but my biggest splurge is alcohol. I don't do it often but when I do I go all out. And pay.
