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?

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
