sammies - I work part time for a school district, in the cafeteria, of all places! Surrounded by food but we're so busy we never get to eat anyway........
Lately I've been wondering if a gluten free diet for 2 weeks would help me or not. I need to eat plain foods and plain white rice is one of the easiest foods I can digest. Bananas, etc. I've been reading a gluten free diet book and symptoms of wheat sensitivities/allergies match up to my symptoms.
But I'm waiting until summer to try something new.
I also am a believer in smaller meals, not 3 large ones. I haven't been able to eat a very large meal in years. I feel so much better if I eat lightly (cup of soup, half sandwich, etc.).
You could try that too. Much smaller portions but 4 to 6 times a day, not 3 times a day.
- Diagnosed with rectal cancer, April 1999 - Stage I, no treatment necessary
(5 hour colon resection: 90% sigmoid removed, 15 inches of colon removed, gall bladder removed, given temporary colostomy)
- Colostomy reversal, June 1999
- Left with IBS/D symptoms, multiple bm's every day
- On a low residue diet at least 75% of the time

All in all I do okay, I just use the bathroom A LOT! But I survived and beat cancer!
