I can't say foods don't cause flares, but I can say foods may cause flares, especially after this recent event. I have been symptom free for months now and I eat very healthy i believe. I steam brocolli and carrots almost everyday. ANd I tried to eat even healthier during lent. I would definatly say I am not flaring. But then MOnday I ate Burger King combo meal with the fried chicken, bacon, fries, ketchup and sprite and I had some blood and D later. I definetely know my body and I know that would not have happened if I didn't eat the fast food. I also now that if I continued to eat fast food everyday I would be bleeding and going to the bathroom nonstop. DOn't know how to explain it, maybe someone else can. Maybe it is just my type of UC...

I don't know if these "triggerfoods" actaully induce flairs or not, but I do know this, when I eat the bad stuff even when in remission, my stomach hurts, gas increases and my stool get soft. I find it much better to eat the safe stuff (for me) and reduce my chances of any increase in inflammation...why take a chance?
