Low carbing certainly resilts in much less pred face and weight game for me (not that I tend to be a gainer, but I am speaking in comparison with previous experience) before I wa slow carb. I know they also say low sodium helps avoid pred face etc., but I really find low carb helps. Of course, I also low carb to help dampen my UC. Not a universal truth - diet like probiotics can be very individual- but for some of us sugary, refined carbs do increase symptoms as well as flare frequency and intensity.
