Hi! i'm 54, dx'd with Crohns 10 yrs ago and have been on Remicade for about
6 yrs. i've found the best and safest way was to join Weight Watchers. I feel like it's really worth the effort and worth going to the meetings... even with my CD, i was able to find plenty that i could eat and still lost 28 lbs in 6 mths. i got lots of exercise and ate the recommended amts from all the food groups... i never felt better. You really have to be willing to follow it faithfully. (there's built in room for snacking.... and you can eat whatever foods you like as long as you keep track) i never went hungry and felt very energetic. Just a suggestion.... best wishes! Enjoy the wedding!!
