I usually have a big appetite but can't gain any weight. I'm considered underweight for my height but it's hard to gain weight for me i guess since i generally don't eat junk food. I've been feeling better slowly but i think i went overboard yesterday.lol
 
Breakfast: 2 eggs, 2 blueberry waffles w sugar free syrup, handful of steamed spinach, 1 banana, 1 orange, mango juice
 
Lunch: tostadas and salsa, chicken fried steak w french fries, salad, spanish rice
 
Snack: mini cup of chocalate ice cream, 2 large cookies
 
Dinner: tostadas and salsa, fajita plate w grilled onions and green peppers, 2 tortillas, beans and rice.
 
I'm not taking any prescriptions and have not been able to go into remission, but I feel good enough to be introducing more foods and larger quantities into my diet lately. Why? Maybe my gut is healing more and tolerating all foods better. I think I owe a lot of this to omega 3 fatty acids I recently started and to some organic plain kifer i just baught too. I probably really need to go back to my stricter diet and cut out the alcohol I drink about everyother weekend, I'm just feeling so "normal" again and it's kind of fun. But i've been here before only to ruin it with poor decisions...

It's great that you're feeling 'normal'...enjoy it, but I agree that you shouldn't ruin a good thing with poor diet choices. Hope things keep staying normal.

Why the sugar-free syrup? At least maple syrup is "pure", and the very best taste, I might add.

Great you're feeling good...you'll probably have a bigger bm for the next few days.

What you ate sounds good for once in a while....now that you've been adding a few more things, maybe you'll find a good balance.

I really don't know why the sugar free i think my mom baught it for me. I always tell her if anything is sweet it has sugar alchohols/alternatives in it anyway. (FYI my mother is diabetic and eats more sweets than i do) I don't know if you all could tell i went to eat out twice at mexican restuarants b/c i live near the border and absolutely love mexican food. I even ate more at each meal and more chips and salsa than anyone else i ate with and they skipped breakfast and stuff. I actually always have a balanced healthy diet. My usual days include way more vegetables though. Yeah i've had larger BMs today but no visible blood so I'm happy for now...............

I love Mexican food too. For some reason I do really well with it. Although I try to stay away from really spicy salsa - it's not much fun on a inflammed rectum... :(

Glad you are feeling well enough to eat foods you enjoy! And that you haven't seen any blood from the splurge ;-)

All I can say is that if you can tolerate it ---- GO FOR IT!!!!!
Enjoy it -- I have found that what works for one person doesn't necessarily work for another. I tolerate Mexican food rather well, but not Italian food--except for Pizza. Pizza was always something I could eat when I had my colon.

I also have GERD so creamy white sauces were the death of me devil
