I am one of a growing number of people that suffers from Crohn's Disease. Crohn's Disease is an auto-immune disorder that I have suffered and lived with since I was 16 years old. After a very recent flare-up, I decided that I should document my episodes and experiences. Most of the documents and writings I find on the web are rather cold and my hope is that I can show -- through my words -- what goes through my mind.
uf.. i couldn't eat such a breakfast... the fruit would really boost my crohns symptoms.ReplyDelete
just goes to show you that it reacts with everyone differently...
There was a point that this would have caused me great pains. Many years I couldn't eat any hard, fibrous, or seed-filled fruits and veggies. Once I removed the di- and polysaccharides, though, I found after several months I was able to start tolerating these items in smaller quantities.ReplyDelete
SO true.. same with me now, I noticed that I can eat whatever I want. BUT if in the past a certain food used to bother me, then all I would do is eat it but in really small quantities... I would eat fruit, but very little, maybe one or two times a week.ReplyDelete
Broccoli doenst really bother me, but too much tomato sauce does (the spaghetti sauce).
I also noticed that eating the same food daily affects us.
Like lets say a small box of Yogurt with fruit?
If I had that everyday after lunch (as my desert) then the diarrhea kicked in. But if I had it just 3 times a week, then my body would tolerate it much more. Same goes for cereal+milk or chocolate... even juices (orange or cranberry etc.)
I tend not to have the same breakfast everyday. Each day its something different so that my body doesn't reject it the 2nd or 3rd day/time.
Maybe it's just me...
Those items seem like they have di- and polysaccharides. I stay away from flavored yogurts and anything with sugar, maltodextrin, or high-fructose corn syrup. I noticed a MARKED improvement. And no dairy that doesn't have its own bacteria.ReplyDelete
