I'm curious what everyone eats on a daily basis. Reason being I'm having massive bloating problems from my daily foods that I have been eating for years now. I eat extremely clean calories up to 4500 calories a day during my bulking phase and 3000-3250 calories during my cutting phase. I eat more along the lines of a bodybuilder, but I have been doing it for years now without any problems up until now. I'm not currently having a flare up but I'm just experiencing massive uncomfortable bloating thats very irritating. I know some of you wish you probably were only feeling bloated right now and I feel YOU because we all go through the pain and aggrevation. I was doing a little research and noticed that wheat,yeast, and milk are a no no for people that like us. My question though is why are these foods all of sudden bothering my stomach when I went years eating them. I just came back from vacation in Puerto Rico and was a little worried about eating the food over their because I didn't know how my stomach was going to react to it. I'm still confused because that was probably the best week my stomach has experienced bloat free in a long time. Then as soon as I come back to the states and returned to my eating habits the bloating returns. So obviously its my diet, but what foods bother your stomach? Here is my daily diet that I'm currently eating right now. I also drink a gallon to a gallon in a half of water a day.
 
Meal 1) 4 scrammbled eggs mixed with 1/2 cup of milk, wheat bagel with natural peanut butter
Meal 2) pistachios, yogurt,
Meal 3) Boneless chicken breast and sweet potatos
Meal 4) Boneless chicken breast and brown rice
Meal 5) Tuna on wheat bread
Meal 6) Protein shake mixed with 12ounces of milk, honey, and rice cakes
Meal 7) 93% burger patties on wheat bun with cheese, and a salad.
 
Meal 8) I wouldn't really consider this a meal, but I juice vegetables and fruit and usually make a drink before I go to bed.
 
Please discuss your trigger foods and what bothers your stomach I'm all open ears.

Eggs and meat
Simple meats or fish with well-cooked veggies

I eat lots of other stuff but if I stuck to these I would probably feel better.

On your list, I would probably notice problems with the milk, the wheat (that's just me), the nuts, and the salad. But it all sounds healthy and delicious (I'm on prednisone, you know, everything sounds delicious)

some people believe that some foods are a no-no for UC...I don't buy into the theory.

You are consuming a waaaaaaaaaay high amount of protein. While I believe that we need protein, and I do consume some at every meal, I add a mix of carbs in there as well.

Now, I'm not in body building, so my option probably doesn't count....and no foods trigger flares for me.

What meds are you on at this time? If you aren't on any, it could be that you're having a low in the rectum inflammation or mild inflammation...meaning starting to flare.

The other thing is that you could have picked up something from your holiday..hard to keep our digestive tracts fully covered when eating in an environment other than our own.


Are you taking any probiotics in the mix of intake?

I'm lactose intolerant and will have symptoms of gas/cramping from too much milk products...not necessarily from cheese, however.

Whole grain products and some fruits and raw veggies. Now, for me, I'd never consume raw cauliflower or broccoli....unless it was a teeny amount in something someone was serving me. Even cooked, cruciferous veggies always will give me gas. Beano would help, however...must get that stuff.

Again, are you on any meds for UC?

Yes, I do consume a pretty decent amount of protein on a daily basis without a doubt. My ample supply of protein doesn't worry me though. Yes my kidneys have to work a little more then someone else but thats what the gallon of water is for along with all of the other nutrients I supply my body with. My meds consist of fish oil and probiotics. I take 2000mg of DHA and EPA a day along with a pearl probiotic pill. I understand your concern and questioning but I really just don't believe the maintenace meds that our doctors prescribe really do much of anything except burn a hole in our pockets. I tried them in the past and they did nothing for me at all unfortunately. Even though I only tried them when I was experiencing a flare up at which the flare up was probably to developed that the only thing that helped with a steriod. Was diagnosed back in 2000 and I haven't taken any maintenace drugs since. I get flare ups like once a year managed to go 2.5 years without a flare up not to long ago. I wish I knew how I did that one....
I actually had great success with wheat grass to tell you the truth.
 
Thanks for the feedback.

I don't really track my diet, I eat a little of this, a little of that.... probably heavier on the protein & carbs than on fruits & veggies, but I do try to eat some of those daily! And of course, sugar. I just had a rice krispy treat..yum! But anyway, what struck me about your post was how you said everything was great on vacation, then when you got home, things went awry... I'm thinking it's more of a mental thing- vacation = elaxation, no work, no stress. Everyday life = tiny annoyiances, work stressors, relationship hassles... I've always found that when I'm on any sort of vacation, be it a weekend or a weeklong trip, my stomach is pretty darned good! With absolutely no dietary or med changes. Then I come home (I live in a fairly stressful situation, with my huband & child, in my Mom's house...!!!) & my stomach starts up it's old tricks. Bloating sounds like IBS, no?

Although you are eating a variety of foods, you are always eating the same things. That's not good. Your body could be missing out on something or it could be getting too much of something. If it is getting too much of something, it won't complain until one day it just can't handle it anymore, and then you'll start to see symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, and gas.

There are several foods on your list that would put me in a flare. You are consuming a lot of fructose, which is putting too much strain on your liver. Honey is extremely high in fructose. So is juice. The mayonnaise (if you use it for your tuna) might contain high fructose corn syrup. So could some yogurts.

I would start with one or two foods and then gradually add foods to see if anything bothers me. The safest food on your list might be boneless chicken breast with brown rice. Start with that. Eat nothing but boneless chicken breast with brown rice for the day. If you don't have any problems with it, add another item the next day. Keep doing this until you find out if anything bothers you.

I ditto subdued. I think a good way to find out "if" it is the foods that are bothering you would be to try an elimination trial....boring, I know. I agree that fructose may be a problem for you. It can be for me. I can only eat certain fruits or I may get gas and D. I get IBS symptoms BIG TIME when I eat anything with yeast. You are eating a lot of that throughout the day. I used to live on bread and now I must find yeast free bread. I would at least eliminate the yeast foods and see if that doesn't help. I only found out by trial and error, myself. Is the yogurt you are eating free from artificial sweetener?

Interesting that you felt better when you were on vacation. It may be an environmental issue, disappears when you are removed from the trigger at work/home, and when you return, it starts up again.

Sounds like you have IBS symptoms. Even gluten could be trigger. If you have a fungus/yeast issue (and yes, it can come on at any time in your life, especially if you have ever taken antibiotics, steroids or been exposed to mold), bloating will result after eating all those grains, yeast and sugar in fruit and honey. I again suggest you try the elimination route.

A bodybuilder's diet is just different, and I totally appreciate why you do things the way you do. And it takes discipline, I admire that! You might try an elimination experiment, to see if there is some trigger that you would not suspect.

I think the maintenance meds were much more important when there was little else available for treatment.

The only bread and bagels I consume is the Arnold brand which doesn't have any high fructose corn syrup. Like 99% of the breads out their on the market it does contain wheat, yeast, and gluten which may be my downfail. I mentioned honey that I put in my protein shake which is to restore my glycogen stores along with the rice cakes as well. Which also have a lot of frustose as well. I don't consume enormous amounts of that stuff though. Where do you guys and girls buy yeast free bread? The yogurt I eat have fructose in it as well its the dannon brand. My peanut butter doesn't have any fructose in it either. Sorry I forgot to mention that I put syrup on my eggs in the morning, but I use the sugar free and lite kind. I just noticed though that the lite Mrs. Butter worths is of course loaded with high fructose corn syrup, it is corn syrup after all no surprise their.
I guess its time to revamp my diet I plan on eliminating each food one by one. I don't mind having gas all day, actually I would rather have gas then walk around bloated and not wanting to eat.

My stomach does have to adjust when I start eating other foods.

Hope you eventually get it figured out.

I would rethink the artificial sugar/lite stuff and actually read all the labels.

Curious if your diet is what you perceived to be good for you or is it under the care of a fitness specialist who does body building?

Regarding the med/$$$....my 20 year experience plus c-scope results says it's worth it.

Still not exactly sure on my trigger foods, still experimenting, but for years, long before I had UC, I know if I drank a lot of milk all at once it would give me the scoots. Lately since having UC, I think maybe cheese and red meat at times, possibly raw salad, after one bad night I am now afraid to even eat a raw salad. Yogurt is questionable at this point for me. It is different for everyone though for sure. UC drugs, like Asacol and Colazal, while not food, seem to make me feel worse and I don't want to take them anymore.

It's better to start with one or two foods and work your way up than to go the other way and eliminate each food one by one, especially since more than one food could be the cause of the problem. I know it's hard to eat such a limited diet, but it should help you to figure out quickly what foods you are intolerant to (fructose, wheat, yeast, gluten, lactose), if your body is intolerant to anything that is.

Artificial sweeteners are the worst for me.

I forgot about bread containing high fructose corn syrup. I get my bread at Whole Foods and even then I have to check the label for high fructose corn syrup or honey. I'm really sensitive to the stuff. Even a tiny bit gives me diarrhea.

You could also get tested for food intolerances, like I did. Saved me a lot of time! My results came from Alletess, they have a website.

The gluten-free bread is often frozen. And it tastes like cardboard, frankly, with a very dry texture. I just do without bread.

I do read labels, believe it or not hahah. I have been eating this way for years. I really don't consume a lot of processed foods at all.
Quincy, my diet is what I composed and made up I used to be a collegiate so I have been eating like this for years now. My diet isn't really catered toward an UC diagnosed person, but that might be changing very shortly. For the average person my diet would probably make someone fat, but it has done the total opposite for me given my lifestyle and activity level.

I kinda live on bread or should I say yeast. I could eat wheat bread and bagels all day with some form of meat all day if I had to. It just never gets old with me. I noticed you guys/girls are saying fructose is the devil but I'm really not consuming a lot of it all. Wow some of are very sensitive to corn syrup. Even though I will attest to Splenda because it rips my stomach apart. I'm just going to start eliminating each food one by one, starting with wheat bread.

I don't believe I'm having a flare up or even in the beginning stages of a flare. My body usually starts to show me certain signs, that I know we are all familar with unfortunately and dread.
Does anyone eat large amounts of raw vegetables? I know its usually a big no no but I'm curious if anybody does.

Hi..large amounts of raw veggies would be hard on me, and I'd probably blow a hole in the wall from so much gas and pressure I'd have.

Now, the raw veggies I can consume would be carrots, celery, sometimes raw cabbage but not the kind that's been soaked as coleslaw, small cucumbers/english cucumbers... Tomatoes are fine for me. Salad is A-OK, and I can consume a fair amount, but would only do so with a meal. It would loosen my stool a bit depending on just how much I had, but I wouldn't get cramping gas as with most cruciferous veggies whether raw or even cooked.

You could look into Beano to help break down the raw veggies....I'll be looking into that myself, as my doc suggested.

If they disagree, you could do juicing instead.

Any of the above would be even if I didn't have UC, because nothing's changed since I was a kid.

Studies show foods do not cause or stop UC flares unless you're allergic to them. Softer foods are more comforting to pass through an irritated colon. Fruit will worsen diarhhea. Other than that you should start eating simple things and introduce new foods, one by one, in order to determine what you can tolerate. The juice and salad I would watch and don't overdo the yogurt.

Burli, I have been in remission for three years from diet change alone so I can tell you for a fact that foods have an impact on some with UC. Nutrients are what controls just about everything in the body and healthy foods is what supplies us with nutrients so it makes sense that foods could have a huge impact on if something goes wrong in the body or is not working right. I believe nutrient imbalances or deficiencies are responsible for many things that go wrong in peoples bodies.

I eliminated whole wheat bread and bagels yesterday and actually noticed a difference. Figure I'm just going to have to eat other carbs that don't have wheat or gluten in them. Even though I'm only a day into this I think wheat might possibly be the problem, but its to early to tell. Been eating brown rice, grits, and I think I'm going to work in oatmeal during this week also.
 
I agree with Burli, I know certain foods cause my flare ups. Prime example the one I had this past summer was caused by over eating junk food. It was my cheat day and I completely over did it. Managed to eat half a pizza, bunch of ice cream, a bucket of board walk fries, and funnel cake. I ate that in one seating and it killed my stomach. I really think it was the ice cream honestly, because now all of sudden my stomach is very sensitive to ice cream.

Gluten and dairy are common offenders for anyone with digestive issues. Peanuts are often also a problem. It doesn't matter what you used to eat. Your intestinal health and gut ecology change over time. Things that didn't bother you in the past could certainly cause issues now.

I've had bloating issues with all kinds of protein shake mixes. What kind do you use? If you're using whey protein, it should be an isolate, not a concentrate. If the isolate bothers you, you may try egg white protein.

An elimination diet, although not fun, will identify the culprit. Since your bloating sounds extreme, it's probably something you're eating every day, so it's a cumulative effect. Check out the book The False Fat Diet by Elson Haas to learn more about bloating, foods that are most often problematic and how to do different levels of elimination diets.

I think wheat or gluten is the culprit, but like I mentioned before I'm not entirely sure yet. I drink milk on a regular basis and it doesn't bother my stomach, even though I only drink it directly once a day and its only 8-12 ounces mixed in with my shake. I use ON whey or optinum nutrition protein shakes. I might just have to look into the isolate that you mentioned. I tried the latose free milk about 3 weeks ago and didn't notice any difference so I don't think its the milk or dairy, because I eat a decent amount of dairy chesse (cabot) and it doesn't bother my stomach.
I'm starting to think my sweet potatos were also the issue maybe, because after I would eat them the bloating would increase.

Sweet potatoes contain fructose. You really need to start with just the rice and chicken and then start adding foods. There are quite a few items on your list that could be causing problems.

Yeah I already started today! Breakfast consisted of scrammbled eggs and grits, while the rest of my meals are going to be chicken and brown rice for the rest of the day. I don't think my stomach likes the pistachios either......
