Thanks so much for all the advice. I'll be off to the store this afternoon to buy ingredients for the yougurt.
One more quick question that I didn't find answered in the book. Is this diet supposed to help with bleeding too? That is our major concern. Does anyone have any personal experience with this? Does the diet help diarrhea and blood? My husband has blood each time he has to use the bathroom which is 3-4 times a day (we've already discussed it with his doctor who is concerned and wants to do another colonoscopy).
By the way, I love this place. I found it about a week ago and have been reading the old posts every day after work :) It's so helpful and imformative.
Awww, thanks, newcrohnwife! And welcome to the forum! I sure hope this helps your hubby!!! Also, have you run across all the online info about

Spooky, if that happens again with your yogurt, I would let it finish its 24 hours to rid it of the lactose and just use the yogurt for recipes that call for it to be cooked (cooking kills all the good guys, anyway). I'm glad you brought up the subject, though, because my yogurt maker runs high in temp., too. I'm going to look into this!
...lastly....the point has been made about
the use of the word "whining". can we let it go now?...please....
