Hello everyone
I was wondering if any of you have found that if you eat a certain food, it will make you have bleed?
I have noticed whenever I eat cake, I will bleed the next morning.  The problem is I still can't stop eating the darn cakes! I think I am addicted, lol.
Can this really all be down to eating the wrong food?
Thanks for your input.

For me, it's not the next day but if I eat certain foods, or rather OVEReat the amount, I seem to start a flare which can include beeding,
The foods that do this to me are chocolate, almonds. I can eat a little of each occasionally but too much and I pay.

I am bloated big time today but it could be because Saturday night I ate my first bit of red meat - I had a little meatloaf, then yesterday I had 3/4th's of a homemade hamburger and a piece of chocolate cake.

Food doesn't make me bleed. The inflammation from a flare makes me bleed, and that isn't caused by food. If I'm flaring some foods will irritate my colon even more - chiefly spicy, fatty or high-fiber foods.

If you bleed from food, it's probably because your colon is in a fragile state even if you don't have any current symptoms. I find that if I eat raw fruits or veggies that the next day I will see some blood. But I think it's mainly because my colon is always in a perpetual state fragility that any roughage just irritates it.
