I have been diagnosed with both Crohn's and ulceriative colitis, and GERD... from what I understand they are very similar and hard to tell the differance. Because I have been diagnosed with both I am posting this same question to the IBD board and crohn's board...

what is a diet that is simple to follow that wont cause flare up...? what are some samples, recepices...

What I have found is that if something doesnt sound good I just wont eat at all... or if it is a known cause of tummy problems for me, then I refuse to eat it... however there are certian foods I wont give up because I am already a very picky eater, so cutting too much out of my diet is a scary thing for me because I am afraid I wont eat at all... I tend to lose alot of weight all the time, which is partially because of my migraine medications, however I am concerned that I am losing too much weight...
25/F migraines since 6th grade, sleep apnea diagnosed at 16, Ulceriative Colitis and/or Crohn's disease diagnosed at 18 &19, GERD/ hiatal hernia since age 18, tremors diagnosed at 24 (side effect from medication), HPV 2003...

Hi williams3.. I also have crohns and gerd.. The diet for either can be tricky.. I have found that I have to avoid all spicy foods cause of both.. I can not eat corn. nut, seeds (cucumbers, tomatoes etc..), fried foods, red meat, pork, i have to drink 2% or 1% milk whole milk kills me, cokes are suppose to be bad for both but cokes help me with my gerd for temp relief, beans, cabbage, anything with a skin (grapes.. etc), apples, corn chips.
This is what I have found I can not eat.. Crohns and Gerd both vary from person to person when it comes to diet so alot will be trial and error.. Somedays i can eat a little of something and the next day it the same and it will flare my crohns. So there is really no diet for crohns. If you lose weight easy you might want to drink boost with proten to supplement..
If have to wants the recipes you get that are good for your gerd because they may have stuff in them that will make you flare..
I hope this helps some.
