I’m a 26 year old girl from Montreal who loves to run. Unfortunately, it was as I “upped my game” with the training that I started to get symptoms, and was ultimately diagnosed with UC 5 months ago. I’m currently trying to learn how to get and keep myself in remission!
– Occasional diarrhea (sorry for the TMI)
– Still losing weight (Although nowhere near as fast as I was before)
– Eye twitch…? I know, I don’t know what to make of it either, it’s been 3 days, I’ll give it a week before seeing the doc….
I’ve heard that popcorn is the worst possible thing someone with UC can possibly eat. I’ve made the necessary dietary modifications overall – which includes eating a lot more rice than bread nowadays – but it got me wondering….
Are rice cakes allowed?
They’re made of rice, which I’ve been told by my doc is a-ok when you have UC. Rice is essentially what got me to remission, so I’m ok with it. However, rice cakes are very similar to popcorn in the way they’re made, although there isn’t as much “husk” for your body to process. So, I wasn’t sure if it was allowable.
Does anyone out there have any anecdotes regarding whether its a safe food? I guess I’m just searching for good snacks :)
Where I Like to be in 1 year:
Palafer – 1 pill/day [ I don’t believe in using iron pills – I’ve been on them for 3 years and feel like it is what contributed to me developing UC. However, my blood tests force me to continue to be on it!]
Probiotic pill – 1 pill/day
