I always watch my diet, had colonoscopy in feb which was good, went on eating binge, not the wrong
food but a lot of the food we should eat, i gaine about 8lbs, now went in to flare and lost all my weight. now on pred.
question can overeating the right food, do just as much damage of eating a little of the wrong food, and will overeating send u into flare.

Anything less then a 10 lbs weight fluctution in more then a month's is not clinicially significant if you are otherwise healthy according to my doc.

For me eating foods too high in fiber will cause me a lot of problems. I end up getting obstructed with too much fiber in a short period of time.

I don't think overeating will put you in a flare but too much food volume of any type can cause partial or total blockages in my experience.

MNavvy, would that depend on how much weight you have to loose?

Either way, 10lbs in three weeks, (10%) of my total body weight is too much for me...
CD 24 years. Multiple surgeries in past 10 yrs. 4 year Illeostomy. Mesh rejection. Too close to death, twice. Large inscisional hernia. Perpetually underweight. Short bowel syndrom. Have used a variety of complementary medical therapies. Highly recommend Bowen Therapy as the best body work. Take me vites. Started Low Dose Naltrexone March 27, 2010. Got married for the only time 2008. Survive because of the love of good friends, and because I can. Happy to be alive. IBD needs more awareness and more voices willing to speak up. BE well.

Did you see over a month, under 10 lbs, and otherwise healthy qualifications I made?  That also includes a healthy adult body size.  If you are an adult and only 100 lbs, then you are probably not otherwise healthy, in fact I think you answered yourself here in that your sig says that you are perpetually underweight. 
 
The actually true caveat that I should have put up, is that if your weight changes more then 2 lbs. in a week time, because that is when if it consitantly happens (as in a steady loss) other health issues can come up.
