My colitis symptoms were definitely active, and I was using the toilet 4-8 times per day.
With this said, by sticking to the diet, and not breaking the rules at all, I was able to come out of the flare.
(For you Hard Core SCD Diet people’s, you might want to remove the bacon from the meals, mainly because its hard to be positive that it does not contain any sugars. If I was in a worse flare, I would have done without the bacon until symptoms got better)
Just a few days after shooting this video, I was back to making up my morning smoothies once again. I actually was making them not only for breakfast but for lunch and sometimes for snacks during the day too.(Man I missed that sweet taste…)
But you need to be careful. Once you start to see some relief in terms of your symptoms getting better. DO NOT RUSH back into eating other foods and think you are HOME FREE. Colitis symptom shave a nasty habit of getting a bit better and then getting out of control again if you let them.
Once again, feel free to read up more on the diet I follow on the “DIET PAGE” (which you probably already have done I’m hoping.)
