I was thinking about starting the anti-inflammatory diet to help with my UC. Has anyone tried it yet? Or think it will work?

     What diet is that?  My doctor and nutritionist had me follow a low residue diet.

Dr. Weil's anti-inflammatory diet is quite healthy and includes many anti-inflammatory foods. However, my digestive system can't handle some of the foods on his list; so I guess I follow a modified version.

The anti-inflammatory diet focuses on eliminating poisons that cause inflammation, while eating foods that are naturally anti-inflammatory.

Some sites on the anti-inflammatory diet-
