Right now I'm on a liquid diet, because I just got out of the hospital but here's what I would typically eat in a day:
Breakfast - 2 pieces toast with butter and honey (sometimes Pepperidge Farm, sometimes fresh), tea with Stevia
10:00 - banana
Lunch - Sandwich or pasta, some fruit
3:00 - 3-4
cookies and a cup of tea with Stevia
Dinner - some kind of protein, serving of veggies, a carbohydrate, and a little wine (not lately, though)
My symptoms are diarrhea with blood and some nasty cramping. I seem to be doing better today than yesterday, but I don't know what's making the difference because I'm doing so much stuff all at once (liquid diet, new meds, etc.).
Kim - I did a little research on candida, and I don't seem to have the most common symptoms (except for the UC, of course). Will still ask my doctor if its something for which I should be tested. Very interesting info... thanks again.
