This is my 6th week on my new diet.I started feeling really bad last month and got fed up with constantly being tired and vomiting after i ate something. So i started a drastic diet change and it is working great.I've quit all caffeine( drinking coffee was one of my fav past times),sugar,soft drinks,all dairy,all breads and more or less any processed foods.The first few weeks were so awful, i craved everything. But within days i noticed that the caffeine withdrawals disapeared and i actuallyt had twice as much energy as i had before.I'm not kidding i used to believe that i needed caffeine for energy, but i now believe it was the massive amounts of sugar i was consuming daily that was making me so tired.
My diet consists of salads, vegetables,streamed chicken,rice,eggs,fruit and water.I have to say i feel great,i'm still flaring but i'm in great form apart from my back. I am no longer vomiting after i eat something,and i am a lot more active and a lot of the stress and anxiety i was under is now manageable.I believe the caffeine was playing havoc with my head.
I know now what foods are causing me to be ill, so i'm going to avoid them. So far my Uc hasn't got any better but it hasn't got any worse either.Is this diet i created something similar to the SCD diet, because it is more or less all veg and fruits.
