I gave this advice to a friend,

Look up nutritionfacts.org My GP suggested it to me. Look on the site about glyphosate. Commonly known as roundup, an herbicide(but also a very powerful antibiotic that kills off beneficial bacteria that protect our insides). It is in our foods that are GMO, meaning, genetically modified organism. The crops are genetically modified so they are resistant to glyphosate, so when the crops are sprayed the weeds die and the crops survive. The problem is the food crops absorb the glyphosate as well as the weeds do! It remains in them all the way to the supermarket, or the animal feed. The animals eat a ton of food so it becomes more concentrated in them, especially in the fat. They are full of glyphosate and this stuff causes leaky gut syndrome, which in turn leads to abscess and fistula problems. The issue with this stuff in our food is the higher you go on the food chain, (meat) the more concentrated the levels become and therefore it causes worse troubles than if you were to eat broccoli for instance. You might want to think about probiotics. I take VSL#3 it is available at the pharmacy here in Canada OTC. My doctor recommended it and told me it is the best one on the market. Make sure to check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking VSL#3. It made a world of difference for me. As my doctor put it "It gives your guts a new protective lining." If you get the VSL be sure that it has been kept cold as it has live bacterial cultures which will die off if left at room temperature. Mine comes in a cooler to the pharmacy where I pick it up.

Hope you folks read this, it really helped me to change my diet.


All the best to all of you,

cmack

I just had toast for breakfast, but a co-worker gave me a huge gourmet caramel apple before noon. I made the mistake of slicing off a taste and then I couldn't quit nibbling on it all day! It was a pitiful site. I ate the whole damn thing.

I got mine at Pharmasave. I think most pharmacists know where to get it. Just phone the one you go to and ask to speak with the pharmacist. They should be able to get some for you. That way they can check your meds for interactions too.

Welcome, gosh I miss broccoli it's a no go for me. It is great you can still eat good. Sorry to hear about the fatty liver disease but it can be reversed from what I had read with the right diet. My father had liver disease.

I ate my kids Cinnamon Toast Crunch with Lactose Free Milk. It was fun and low fiber.

I'm so curious after reading this thread. How do you know what doesn't agree with you? I'm still on steroids after being diagnosed last month, have started tapering off them. I have had no more pain since being off them and no bouts of diarrhea. Can you only figure out what does abd doesn't agree once you're off steroids? What symptoms do these foods cause you? I can't imagine not eating fruit or veges!

A lot of people try a food diary to see what foods disagree with their system. You mentioned about fruits and vegetables. My wife and I go to the hot bar at Whole Foods Market a lot. They tend to not fully cook their vegetables which doesn't set well with my system. For me personally, bananas are the only fruit that settles on my system. Everyone is a little different on what they can or cannot eat.

I agree with Ron a food diary is a very helpful tool.

I ate a banana and had a black coffee so far. Next will be veggie soup with sliced black Italian olives for lunch, afternoon snack will be 1/2 cup of chickpeas. Dinner will be a veggie stir fry Or a smoothie I haven't decided yet. After dinner snack, a little dark chocolate 1'' cube or so and maybe 1/4 cup of roasted salted peanuts.

Besides logging my food on Fitbit I can also log symptoms. The only issue is if I try more than one new item at a time. So I try to only ad one new item. It feels like I ate glass if I say ate cauliflower and like barbed wire is being dragged back and forth around my terminal ileum. I'm trying to keep a more simple diet but when family comes I blow it and pay later. Hence my Cinnabon we had yesterday. It didn't hurt too bad just too much oils.

Doing an elimination diet (Such as the intro diet for Specific Carbohydrate Diet or GAPS) then adding things back in slowly is also helpful.

Agreed about fruits and veggies - Cooking (boiling/steaming until very soft) and then pureeing them works for me when I have been experiencing symptoms. Raw bananas always seem fine. I also use 100% fruit juice to make gelatin.

Is this like a smoothie or like a porridge? Never tried chia seeds but read about them.

I had my boring but safe cornflakes, with living on the wild side, 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts. Well and coffee of course.

I feel lazy and overwhelmed by cooking sometimes too. Now, especially that I'm doing the pureed veggies thing, I am making sure to do batch cooking. Instead of having to think about every meal, I know I have food that works for me in the fridge for a few days and don't have to worry about it.

G.I. the nutrition powder is made by Bioglan.I'm on chocolate at the moment,2teaspoons in 0 fat milk.But I prefer Berries flavour.They do a veggie one as well.So if my diets rubbish,at least I know I'm getting nutrition.
For my very late lunch,I had two eggs on toast. and match green tea.Don't feel like much else for the rest of the day, except my usual nibbles of raw well chewed nuts and a few squares of chocolate.

I've bought so many protein powders hard to find a good tasting one. I've been having the ensure plus lately for meals when I can't bare the thought of food.....like now wishing I had only had the smoothie instead of the half cup of corn flakes....sigh.

Magnolia, I love egg salad sandwiches and hard boiled eggs but the last two times they hurt me bad so I'm gun shy of them right now.

Sometimes eggs used to bother me too, I quit that kind! Maybe if it was organic it would be OK for me. I should try them because I like eggs. I used to eat pickled eggs all the time(those days are long done and over).
