A lot of diet proposals are discussed here - all very informative. But for me also a bit confusing as some recommendations cover
1) Get rid of a flare (like the spinach recommendation)
2) what can out eat without irritating your bowel and get diarrea
3) What is forbidden when in flare / not in flare
4) What is allowed when xx etc etc
It all gets mixed up in my confused head!
What I will in particular appreciate if you could help me with is food for when you are in remission already and "just" wanna stay that way for as long as possible !!!
I have no bowel/diarreha (spelled wrong I know) issues, no pains. I feel perfectly normal and I WANNA STAY THAT WAY !!!
My UC condition when flaring is 15 cm up (worst ever was 30 cm, still no pain - but first time with diarreha - 3 years ago). Last 2 flares minor.
So, I would highly appreciate if you could help me sort in the recommendations to:
A) What food to include in your diet to help stay in remission
B) What definitely not to eat (e.g. sugar, coffee, beer I assume)
C) Most important vitamins, minerals, aimoacids to take.
What e.g. confuses me is whether bread in general, wheat, rice, pasta, potatoes etc are all bad also when in remission??
Some say raw vegetables/salat is good - others say bad
I start to be affraid of eating - to risk making myself sick. I also fear not to eat the good things as I don't know what they are......
Thank you all !!
