Hi guys I'm not a sufferer and after reading about the condition I feel for you.  I am doing an assignment on it and need a 7 day diary for three meals, breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks.  I have read so much conflicting information so I thought I'd ask the experts.  Do you eat the same thing for breakfast everyday, do you need to have more protein than normal, do you avoid diary.  If any one can give me some direction that would be good.

It's very individual, jmstyles.

I recommend that you decide first how severe your hypothetical patient's disease is, and where the disease is located. Also how old s/he is, and whether s/he has help in cooking, shopping etc.

I agree with Ivy. The simplest thing would be to have your patient be in a flare and have them on the BRAT diet.
