Fried foods are hard to digest and upset lots of sensitive tummies. If you have tummy problems, imagine what you would want to eat when you have a stomach bug. You wouldn't want to eat a fried takeaway, would you?
Go for steamed vegetables for example (look into the low FODMAP vegetables, google is your friend), have some lean protein or some fat fish (good omega 3 fats, so here fat fish is all right, e.g. salmon is a fat fish) baked in your oven without other fat than a tablespoon of olive oil or coconut oil and some boiled or steamed potatoes. Just to give you an example for a pretty simple meal.
I haven't eaten a takeaway in years because I would feel as if I was dying or something, regarding the pain, cramping, nausea and possibly vomiting. Very bad memories to takeaways here though.

So go for smooth, cooked, non-fried foods but don't avoid fat overall, just fried, as I said.

Otherwise there is good literature out there about eating for Crohn's or IBD if you need some input.

Also, you mentioned seeds and some people with IBD have problems with seeds. Are you having pain. Maybe, you could take Tylenol.

Chinese food gives me problems. Not sure if it's a particular food or maybe even a seasoning in the dishes.

Many people I know who have IBD are either sensitive to or allergic to soy. I am one of them. Fried foods cause me problems, too. And that was a LOT of food at one time.

The MSG(monosodiumglutamate) that most Chinese food is cooked with gives me fits as well! I'll have massive migraine, vomitting & severe GI upset! So I avoid it unless I know it is made without MSG....and then I choose my meal wisely, usually white rice and chicken & veggies is what I order! Better to avoid foods that contain soy sauce as it contains MSG as well in most restaurants

Chinese food doesn't bother me as long as I steer clear of known foods or condiments that trigger problems.
