I personally live on a low residue diet all the time. I don't eat any red meat, only chicken, fish and turkey. My veggies are always cooked till really soft and mushy. I have found great success with this diet. Its easy to chew, easy to digest. And along with my diet, I always make sure to take a maintainence med. I consider the diet and meds as compliments of eachother to keep me feeling good. JMHO
