Oh wow, Doc, this is FABULOUS news! I am here keeping my fingers crossed for you that your plan of attack works!!! It sure sounds like it is!
Welcome, Crohnsboy/celtic82! I'm going to show your website to my son! Mostly he likes for me to do all the "research" and just tell him what to do, but maybe seeing someone as COOL and yourself with CD would pull him in... he's pretty COOL, too! (totally unbiased mom opinion...)
Osprey, you'll be happy to know I'm picking up a copy of Life Without Bread today from my local library--that way you won't owe me if I don't like it!
Just kidding...I'll probably end up ordering a copy from the book store soon, but I was pleasantly surprised that my library had it! Thanks for your explanation above... it all does make sense...
Oh, and Osprey, one other question. Are those muscle-recovery, whey based, protein sports drinks ok for my son in your opinion? Do you ever use them? If so, would they also be a possibility for use if one were flaring and wanted to do a liquid diet for a time? Just curious. Last year when my son had a mini-flare, he drank Crohn's Clear Elemental Shake (not truly and elemental formula, but rather a semi-elemental, I was informed by Writer here on the forum.) That product worked really well for him, but is no longer available. I suppose it's very similar to Absorb Plus on Jini Patel Thompson's website. Just wondering your opinion on this. Thanks!
