Have you heard of brat to help get rid of D?  The formula is:
B - Bananas
R - Rice
A - Applesauce
T - Toast
I have used that for years, even when I was raising my kids - which they are now grown.  Really seemed to work - better than the cheese.  Don't know what made me think of this, but thought I would post it.  Lordy be, w/ all the D we suffer from any info helps!

It's a low residue diet, also one that contains foods with low allergy potential. Unfortunately, its not good to use for long periods because it isn't nutrutionally sound. Thanks for the reminder, Gigi.
