A food diary is really the best way. Some people feel that dietary changes have been very beneficial to them. Others have given various diets an honest try and found they made no difference. It's very individual, and only time will help you sort it out. Most people with UC can eat a normal, healthy diet (limiting fats and simple carbohydrates moderately) and do just fine. Doctors don't give dietary recommendations because there isn't one diet that helps most people.
