Despite what many want to believe, there is not a shred of objective evidence that any particular diet causes or cures ulcerative colitis, or causes flares. If you're already flaring then certainly there will be foods that will worsen your symptoms.
I'm totally in favor of people trying anything they want to fight this DD, I just think before people start spending money for books, special foods etc., they should be aware of what the known facts are so they can judge accordingly. And remember those facts come from decades of studying and managing the disease.
