Hi and thanks for coming to the site to look into diet and how it effects ulcerative colitis. Below you can watch the video version of the past day and a half, with some nice footage of food I ate before it went inside my mouth.
This page was created on the fly, but it represents a full day and a half of meals that I just recently ate, and digested right after with great success. I know it can be very frustrating not understanding what is going to be easy and what will be hard for your body to digest, especially when you are in the middle of great bleeding and pains in your stomach/intestine/brain etc… I remember always asking my doctors back when I went to them what I should be eating, and the answers were across the board. I definitely don’t remember them telling me to eat bacon and eggs, or tacos though. Yet, for months now, I have been symptom and medication free, and in my own sense, free from ulcerative colitis which is a great feeling. I hope if you are in the middle of the ten craps a day scenario, you see the light at the end of the tunnel soon. Nobody will ever know what you are going through until they do it. That’s for sure. As you will see on many other pages on this site: “Ulcerative Colitis Still Sucks!”
A quick shout out to Pete in Canada who wrote in earlier today talking about taking supplemental enzymes for his UC, and also his tip on gluten free pizza that seems to work real well for him. Thanks Pete
***One quick side note, I have been getting quite a bit of flack from a few people about how my coffee in the videos always looks like it has had some dairy added to it. I confess, yes, I do break the rules, and don’t practice what I preach 100% all the time. The tiny bit of milk is added to my coffee daily, and that is where I break the “no-dairy” rule. To my defense, I did try to use the almond milk for a while, but just couldn’t do it. Sorry for being a hypocrite on that one.- Adam
I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
