Popcorn is something that I've always been able to eat as well. But, I never consume microwave popcorn...only air-popped or theatre popcorn (yummm). Even when I was flaring, I ate it.
One thing....if you are able to slow the bms through proper fibres such as a bulking supplement, it might be easier on the colon than fibres that will help quicken peristalsis or loosen the stool or cause a lot of discomfort.
The proposed diet doesn't sound too much off what I would eat actually...I do eat rye that I slice myself....but you can find rice bread that's pretty good. Some can have maybe a low mixture of mixed grain flour rather than whole grains. Try what you can tolerate. maybe you were eating a tad too much??
We all need fibre, and not all agree with everyone...but finding the balance that can change stool consistency for the better according to your needs AND encourage proper colon "exercise" will help overall.
Not eating or having only liquids or eating only "nothing" foods may give the impression of helping the colon.....but it will also encourage a lazy colon.
RQ....The good part about
your diet is that you'll be consuming protein....
Please consider the asacol or ilk.
ps....beef has lots of plusses to it. I can understand not bottom dwelling seafood (altough I had shrimp and ribs the other night and enjoyed them immensely).

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
