I don't support it except maybe for a day that you're really nauseated and not wanting to eat solid food. More so for one with vomitting/diarrhea type of situation when it causes so much discomfort in the stomach. But, that wouldn't be UC related.
Are you not able to eat at all?
You could do smoothies in between your regular meals to keep up your energy, etc.
