I am sorry for all the questions but I'm just trying to get a few things understood, I realize everyone is different, However I think some things probably help alot of people. So I have been reading thru the posts and see that alot of people are staying away from sugar and dairy, and doing the low residue diet. On the sugar, I drink coffee and I usually put sugar in it, I really do not care for the fake sugar as it leaves a nasty after taste, I thought Oh i'll use honey instead, well low and behold I came across a page that says honey is actually as bad as sugar, So, Any suggestions? And is it best to be totally sugar free or is there some "limit" i should try to stick around? Also, I have been reading that coral calcium works well for people with crohns, is anyone on this and do you notice a difference? Just figured since I'm new to this whole CD, I might as well try to get started off on the right foot from the begining.
