I'm going to give it a go. I know that people have found SCD and Paleo helpful but IBD-AID seems the one I could most likely stick to.
The diet was developed by the University of Massachusetts Medical School and is summarized like this on their website http://www.umassmed.edu/nutrition/healthy-eating/gastrointestinal/ibd/
Q: What is the Anti-Inflammatory Diet for IBD?
A: The IBD-AID was derived (and updated) from the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), and is a nutritional regimen that is based on:
1. Promoting the beneficial, anti-inflammatory intestinal bacteria with:
○ Vegetables & Fruit
○ Soluble Fiber (steel-cut oats, ground flax seed, lentils, beans)
○ Good protein & fats (beans, nuts, olive oil, avocado, ground flaxseed, fish, soy)
○ Probiotics (yogurt, kefir, miso, kimchi, sauerkraut, local honey)
○ Prebiotics (artichokes, leeks, asparagus)
2. And decreasing the pro-inflammatory intestinal bacteria by eliminating certain carbohydrates, such as:
○ Refined sugars and certain starches
○ Grains (steel-cut and rolled oats are allowed)
○ Lactose (anything containing milk or cream)
These carbohydrates are thought to provide a food for pro-inflammatory bacteria.
3. Together, the foods in this diet decrease bowel inflammation, aid in the repair of the gut, and help to restore balance to the immune system.
Preliminary results were published in Nutrition Journal, here's an abstract of the abstract:
Of the 40 patients with IBD, 13 patients chose not to attempt the diet (33%). Twenty-four patients had either a good or very good response after reaching compliance (60%), and 3 patients' results were mixed (7%). Of those 11 adult patients who underwent further medical record review, 8 with CD, and 3 with UC, the age range was 19-70 years, and they followed the diet for 4 or more weeks. After following the IBD-AID, all (100%) patients were able to discontinue at least one of their prior IBD medications, and all patients had symptom reduction including bowel frequency.
