hello I have a question. I know applesauce can be eaten for bulking however after about a hour it goes right through me like diarrhea. Has this happened to anyone else. I thought strange but it happened twice. Thanks
There is nothing strange about this. We each have individual responses to various foods that are much more significant than general advice about foods.
Thanks Scott. Another food off my list. LOL. I may try to introduce it again after some time has passed. Are there any fruits that are good to eat with a jpouch?
Applesauce has always been good for me, but I echo Scott - we are all individual! The same would go for any fruit or food, for that matter. Unfortunately there is no universal j-pouch diet. It would be so much easier if there were!
In terms of fruit recommendations, the truth is, due to the sugar and fiber content, fruit in general can have a laxative effect for just about anyone, colon or no. Doesn't mean you can't eat fruit, it just means you'll have to try them individually to see how they affect you. Have you tried bananas? They are generally a great bulking food, though some people find them to be too bulking, so you may want to start off with a smaller banana at first or half of a banana and see how it affects you.
Hi Spooky thanks for the input. Yes I have tried bananas and they do agree with me.🍌
