I’ve always followed the diet the doctor told me after my j-pouch surgeries. It worked for a good 25yrs along with my meds. But the last 10-14 yrs has just been a struggle, meds no longer work and food making me sick. It comes down to the food I eat and how it digests through my system.
The thought of a vegan or vegetarian diet was always a no-no for someone like me. I had eliminated quite a bit from my diet, allergic to eggs, lactose intolerance, not too much fruit, gluten and off red meat for past 2yrs, geez what is there left to eat? Even with all I’ve eliminated I’m still not feeling great, I’ve always said, I feel better when I don’t eat.
Been doing lots of research on vegan, vegetarian diets this new year and decided to give it a try. All I can say is WOW. Its been 2 weeks and I’ve not had to take any anti-diarrheal meds. I still take my vitamins and a digestive enzyme. Could meat have been my culprit all along? I’m thinking it might’ve been, 10-20 bm’s a day cut down to 4-5 a day.. hmm, how interesting. I do hope it stays this way.
