Yep. I hear you. I don't think it's healthy to just/only eat vegetables. Besides which, it seems to me no matter what I eat (except spicy food and maybe too much roughage at one time) I have the same amount of going to the bathroom. ANd it's not predictable. I swear, I could have a cup of coffee, eggs, toast, bacon and half a banana and be fine one morning but that same breakfast, the same exact amount could send me into having to use the bathroom four times in a row. ANd I"m so exhausted in the  morning from getting up up up. I also feel I have to drink so much water or I feel faint. And so if I'm not using the bathroom due to food in my system, I am using it to pee!! I don't think we are really allergic to food. It's just our system doesn't function like it should and it never will. It is nice to hear about the occasional person who is commenting that they are doing great with their chosen diet but I just know it wouldn't work for me. I mean, it seems to not matter one way or another what I eat, drink, when I eat, drink.. I still am in the bathroom A LOT.  But at least I have my life back and can travel and go out. When I had UC, I bled a lot and was very anemic for years. That was also horrible.
