Hi there! I was recently diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I had a flare up 1 month ago that sent me to the hospital, and another one 7 years before that. Other than that I am usually constipated or go normal to the bathroom. I was diagnosed with left-sided UC. Before the last flare up I ate everything and anything you can imagine and not have any problems. From my native Puertorican food to sushi to Indian cuisine. I could eat it all, and for being 5’1, 94 lbs girl I could pack it too! But when I was released from the hospital I researched and found out about the SCD diet. So, scared that I would have another flare up I have been following it since. However, I just ate a Godiva Dark chocolate bar with raspberry filling. What are the chances that this chocolate bar will cause another flare up?!
