I received a couple replys on my last post, but I was wondering if I can find a diet plan online that can help me and have it split up for a whole day? Or if not that, at least have the kinds of foods I can have, and shouldn't have and etc. I appreciate all the feedback!

     You can try the low residue diet.  It works for me while flaring.  You may be able to find it online.  My nutritionist supplied me with it.  Basically it is very low fiber.  Here is just a sample of what I eat:
     Breakfast: rice krispies with Silk (soy milk derivative) with a T of honey and half a banana.  I do take 1T of Red Mill ground flaxseed MEAL on top and my colon can tolerate that.  On another day I will eat either a poached or soft boiled egg with one piece of white toast.  No CAFFEINE.  I drink decaf coffee while flaring
     Lunch:  Yogurt or half a turkey sandwich and half a banana
     Dinner:  Baked salmon with half a baked sweet potato and very well cooked vegetables..either carrots or string beans.  Sometimes I eat a small portion of baked white meat of chicken.
     Snack I usually have jello or ice pops. 
     Hope this helps

For me, I followed an antifungal diet to get well. I since have realized (after experimenting with the diet and getting well!) that my UC symptoms must have been fungus/yeast related. The SCD is similar to this diet in that it restricts (eliminates)grains, and sugar for a time, but the SCD is more restrictive, I think. There are 3 phases to the diet, the first phase listed below from website. You can also read about the science of fungus and health on this website, and other FAQ about the diet under the RESOURCES tab, if you like.

Unfortunately, one size does not fit all, but at least one could experiment with a diet to see if it may help them. It is not an overnight solution, and will often take weeks to determine if a diet is helping. You didn't get sick overnight, afterall. For me, I knew within 2 weeks that this diet was making a difference. I still follow phase 3 of the diet to maintain my good health, which allows most foods again, (no fast food/junk food!) in moderation.

i can not suggest any thing at this time as it takes along time for diets to work. There are some people who are on no meds with the SCD diet and raw foods diet. You can follow my threads but it will take me months before I am able to see if diets really work or not. You can find me on
