I was in a 10 year remission then had a flare up start this past January. I'm still in the flare-up, trying to get off Prednisone and have gotton on Imuran.
I never followed any particular diet during those 10 years, other than just avoiding foods that bothered me (caffiene, anything carbonated, raw veggies, too much sugar). I've always consumed quite a bit of protein as I workout alot and it helps my muscles rebuild after a workout.
For the most part I just ate what I wanted. I was on Asacol, then Colazal during those 10 years alone with Meslamine/Rowasa enemas.
