I am recently diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease…I have had colonoscopies, and am on medication. I feel certain that the answer will lie in food and diet, but after a few half hearted attempts I am just confused and don’t know what to do next. I’ve had some good days, but more not so good with loose stools and grumbling swollen tummy. I have read articles on the internet, and bought the Clever Guts book – but this seems to more for IBS than IBD? I don’t know how to cut out foods sensibly in order to identify the ones causing problems. I’ve tried Actimel, and I’ve tried Kefir….the internet advised cutting out healthy whole foods, and substituting with white bread, white rice etc – the very opposite of what we’ve always been told!!
Any advice gratefully received!!!
