I am on the specific carbohydrate diet right now. do a search on google. tons of resources. I would also recommend Raman prasad's book Colitis & me. It's a good read and shows his battle with colitis until he found the diet. Thousands of us are doing well, but it won't work for everybody....
Diagnosed 8/99. Suffered for almost 10 years. I am currently on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and am nearing remission. I feel fantastic! I have lossed so many years to this disease.

MED-FREE!!!

Doc wanted to put me on 6-mp or Remicade, but I refused to take the medications! Currently on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.  I'm in remission and life is like it always should have been.

I'm surprised to see so many SCD posts...

the basics of the diet are laid out in this book:

Breaking the Vicious Cycle
Intestinal Health Through Diet.

by Elaine Gottschall, B.A., M.Sc.
