No, I am not a digestive specialist. I only speak from my own experience and observations. In fact, most (if not all) our members only speak from personal experience. HealingWell does not encourage doctor postings. I will quote what I wrote in another recent post:
"I'd like to add that this site/forum is for regular people to show support and share tips & ideas to managing their disease/disorder. We do not have doctors on the site, nor do we encourage medically trained individuals to diagnose or help treat members. Anyone looking for a diagnosis or medical advice should see their doctor. Please see Rule #4 of the Forum Rules:
4. Use good judgement. NEVER rely on information or opinions exchanged via the forums or chat rooms to replace necessary, personal consultation(s) with qualified health or medical professionals to meet your individual health or medical needs. Remember that what's right or has worked for one person may not be what's right for you."
You do not have to believe what we say, only know that we are here to help each other. We share our experiences and what works for us. However, what works for one person may not work for another.
As for other foods... I do really well with pork. I bread and bake pork chops and they come out really juicy. I make rice or mashed potatoes with WELL cooked vegetables (zuccini, peas, corn, grean beens). I also do well with pasta. I make a sauce out of chicken pieces, fake butter, Marsala wine, and vegetables (artichokes, green beans, tomatoes 'chopped fine', water chestnuts, black olives, & zuccini). It's all really healthy, easy on my gut, and pretty quick to cook. They preserve pretty well too.
