I agree. The only safe thing I've seen on the menu is the cheese wrap. Even then, it's easier just to make safe ones at home.

I can't eat Taco Bell either, but I do okay with somethings on a Del Taco menu. I can eat beans and some cheese. But even better is real Mexican food. Being married to a beautiful mexican man, I find I do well with the foods my sisters in law make as it is all natural. They use fresh for everything. And I usually do well with most of it.

In moderation. You really have to experiment with the many different kinds, but I've read in several places that aged cheeses are easier on your system because their lactose content isn't the same as the softer varieties. It just depends!

Taco Bell cheese, though, is probably not the best for anyone...I know it hurts me.

You guys make me laugh. The pain was surprisingly short lived (though intense) and relieved by one big urgent BM. Then life was good again. I won't be eating it again any time soon though.

When I was pregnant with my second child (and last) we had just gotten a Taco Bell built by where we were living and although I've never been big on mexican food I craved Taco Bell like a maniac through the whole pregnancy. My hubby hated it so he'd usually grab something else for himself when I'd make him go on those midnight runs for taco bell (LOL, midnight runs and Taco Bell, no doubt a perfect combination in that sentence eh) anyways, after I had my son I never craved it or ate it again....but my son absolutely LOVES IT...isn't that so strange how things can work like that.

:)


bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

I loved Taco Bell Beefy Tostados but they don't offer them around here anymore. So I get the Nachos Supreme (no sour cream) and a Senior Pepsi for $2 (it was $1.79 until they started this recent 3 items for $2 deals) and it fills me very nicely and tastes GREAT and - causes NO PROBLEMS! (God looks after fools). I only use the Mild sauce. I'm not at all into the "hots".
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
