Just keep in mind some foods can cause gas or discomfort....it's not necessarily a UC thing.
If one restricts too much, the emotional feeling of hopelessness and depression can take over because of not enough options.
But, some people thrive on restrictions. I for one do not....leave her choices, but do suggest she eat as well as possible to keep energy levels up..that does include proteins and not to always fill up on crappy foods.
She will instinctively learn eating what will have her feeling best or worst.
