You've certainly come to the right place. I'm sorry you are now amoung the ranks dealing with this awful disease.
It sounds as if you already have a good handle on what you should be eating. But things may change now that your colon has changed. Watch for any signs that things you once were able to eat may now cause a little trouble. Every one is so different. There are all kinds of diets out there but what works for one might not work for some one else. It's just trial and error.
I know there are other body builders on here as well. If you start a thread specificly looking for them they will likely show up and you can compare notes. Any questions you might have you will sure find answers to.
I'm much older and in my first flare I lost 40 lbs in about
2 months. I had a real problem with the asacol and decided I wanted to do this as natural as possible. I told the Dr my body didn't get this way from lack of drugs and I wanted to figure out how to get things back in balance by natural means if posible. At this point I getting pretty close to remission but not quite. I was dx in July. There are a lot of people on here who have incorporated both avenues of treatment and as soon as things started getting under controll were able to come off the meds. You have to figure out what is best for you.
I wish you the best and pray things will be under control soon.
