Pb4,

Thanks for your comments, however in such matters moderators make a decision and take appropriate action, should you or any other member disagree with our comments then feel free to alert Peter Waite he will assess the situation and take appropriate action, here is not the place to disagree with moderators decisions.

Moderators have a tough role and spend many hours trawling through the forums in an attempt to ensure that members don't feel offended by others comments, welcoming new members, keeping spammers out etc etc. the last thing we need to do is spend valuable time justifying our every action.

Thanks for your understanding.

Take care.

I have found that there are just a few foods that affect my UC, but I did watch that new show "Cavemen" last week and it kind of made me sick to my stomach ;)

Eric....I didn't mention meds. I have a well-rounded diet, and don't even consume what you suggested, although I might on occasion. If I did, I'd have gas for sure but it wouldn't cause me to flare or if I didn't consume it..it wouldn't heal a flare.

Common sense rules, and I don't see the need for people to go to extremes. If one has a bad diet (of course that's the common sense part and is subjective)...adjust it. There's no need to revert to an extreme diet.

Regarding food sensitivities...that's another health issue in relation to UC. Both should be looked at separately and dealt with accordingly.

Cave "people" may not have had many eating options....we do. Our brains have also evolved.

I repeat...food doesn't cause flares nor heal them. Food has action in the digestive tract...definitely.

I haven't mentioned meds at all....and if anyone doesn't like my information (which isn't to the extreme)...put me on your ignored list.

I had turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, green beans, carrots, gravy, pumpkin pie with topping, coffee for supper last night. Actually, no discomfort, only a satisfied full belly.

One normal bm today.

For those who are not aware, there's a huge difference between a "well rounded diet" and a healthy one....including inflammatory foods in ones diet is not a healthy one...if you eat inflammatory foods on a daily basis, expect to have inflammatory illnesses, IBD, heart disease, arthritis, ect.

It also takes time for the body to heal from inflammatory foods/beverages.

PB4 there is no requirement for you to quote the forum rules to me, I am quite well aware of them and took the moderator title quite some time ago in order to ensure members are compliant with them, two moderators agreed in a matter and that in my eyes is justification to request a member to consider his choice of words, I will not expain my actions to you again, so I suggest if you wish to make any comments regarding mine or anyother moderators actions direct them to Peter Waite and not on this forum.

should I say balanced instead? There's lots of information available now-a-days...again, not needing to go caveman.

If balanced includes inflammatory foods, it's no different then well rounded.

Eric all you are requested to do is to comply with the forum rules so that we can keep the peace, the forum is intended for offering mutual personal support.

Take care.

Dave

That's fine. But if you think anything I said is an "attack, insult, "flame", defame, or abuse"..... Then I see why alot of good people stop posting on these forums time to time.

Eric

Agree to disagree is usually the best policy, Tabitha and myself both said that your words came across a bit strong, you have had no words deleted to my knowledge just a request to consider your wording.

Now let's please get back to offering Connor the support he/she is searching for.
Take care.

CONNOR :)

Many have success with eliminating such things as processed/refined sugar, grains and milk producst ect...many have also had success with not only eliminating foods that they have intolerances but portion size definitely plays into the equation as well...feasting on a large dinner doesn't do the digestive system any favors, it has to work very hard to process large meals, so it's not only "you are what you eat" it's also "you are how much you eat" too.

This is not only my opinion but widely suggested by dieticians as well, eating 5-6 small meals throughout the day rather then 3 large ones with snacks on top of that.

This post seems to be going in a different direction from the original intent.  Perhaps this wonderful community can get together and take a moment for a virtual group hug - I know I could use one right about  now.

with love to all here
