I think it is important to discover on your own what certain foods need to be avoided to maintain remission. The problem is that these verboten foods vary by each individual. Two popular foods to avoid are gluten foods like wheat and rye, and lactose from dairy. So that is a good place to start.
I don't think it is worth it to start a comprehensive diet such as the SCD or Maker's. I find that I am perfectly fine with many foods, such as non-gluten grains or starchy vegetables, which those diets consider illegal. At the same time I find many of their recommended foods, such as kale and shellfish, to be incompatible with my gut.
So my advice is to just maintain a food diary or journal to help untangle all this. But start by going gluten-free for a couple of weeks to see if you too are intolerant to it.
