LOL. I'm with Lynnwood, low carb, high protein, no bread no taters, cheese and a coke sounds like my lunch sometimes. I should try the elimination thing, except that there's not much left to eliminate. Sugar is bad, sweeteners are horrible for my UT, carbs horrible for the liver and diabetes, beans and soy products bad for the UT and gi, vegetables sometimes bad for the gi depending, fruit in small quantities but produce here is so horrible there is nothing really ripe and its all from south america and awful, I eat a lot of berries from my own property when I have them. I have found the thing that really gives me a great feeling of well being is bison meat. That stuff is the best, low cholesterol, low fat, high quality protein. I do eat dairy, when I don't I still feel like crap. Nuts are no-no. Soup is great, and oatmeal and bananas. Its what I eat most of the time. Like a slightly expanded BRAT diet. Patty, let me know how it goes and what ends up bothering you or making you feel better. I would really like to know. I have these red patches on my colon and small intestine and have been very sick for a long time now and I tested negative for celiac, but it has the hallmarks of a food allergy or irritation. I just can't eliminate much more and remain healthy.
