:-)  Hi everyone.I am going through a major flareup,and cant seem to tolerate any food. I tried some foods yesterday,on the Special Carbohydrate Diet,and it was a disaster for me.Everything I eat goes right through me. Can anyone give me advice,as to what they eat when they are in a flare up?I understand everyone tolerates foods differently,but I just wanted different opinions on what works for others.Any input would be appreciated.Thanks-bewell

The things that worked for me when I was flaring was creamy peanut butter, applesauce (or any sauce) cheese, yogurt. PB was my favorite, and you can get quite a variety of nut butters. Also tried some pasta with a little cheese; that worked well too. Remember to stay hydrated; maybe Gatorade or Vitamin Water would be a good thing to drink for the electrolytes. Take care and hope you are feeling better soon.

Baked potatos, applesauce, hummos and pita, pretzels. I also tend to eat small meals several times a day when flaring.

Tender white meat of chicken or turkey, scrambled eggs, soft cooked carrots, greenbeans, peas. Olive, fish and flax oils, nut butters, very ripe bananas, applesauce. Broths and soups. You can blend soups and stews to make them even easier to digest. I'd also recommend supplementing your diet with Absorb Plus shakes. No grains, no dairy.
 
Some of the allowed foods on the SCD should not be eaten when you're in a bad flare. Nuts, beans, raw or crisp cooked fruits and veggies, and the almond flour goodies can cause problems. They should be omitted or eliminated until you're more healed.

Was grateful for your thread as I seem to be having my own flare today... PHHT

But here's what I generally stay away from when flaring: wheat, dairy, corn, anything raw or spicy, sugar (when possible...)
What helps: white rice, yogurt, goat cheese, rice noodle soup, baked chicken/fish, baked sweet potatoes, squash

I'd stay away from anything uber-processed or sweet!

Good luck,

Jones

I ate a lot of pasta with cheese (parmesan). Of course toast and maybe soft boiled eggs may help. I know it is a frustrating time. Make sure you drink alot of fluids. Good luck.

There are several good books out there with dietary recommendations for IBDers. In addition to Breaking the Vicious Cycle (SCD), you might have a look at The New Eating Right for a Bad Gut and Listen to Your Gut. They provide less restrictive suggestions.
