Hey everyone. Hope all is well. I’m coming close to the three year mark with my j-pouch. I’m happy and healthy. I’m very thankful for how lucky I’ve been. I was just wondering if there is any other j-pouchers who have experimented with the pescatarian diet or even the vegetarian diet. The last thing I want is to cause any damage but it’s something I’d really like to do.

I have had my j pouch since 2013 and am pescitarian.  I have no difficulties at all.  Everyone has their sensitivities which are many and varied.  For example, I can’t eat blueberries or citrus fruits.  Causes horrific butt burn and are indigestible for me.  I love nuts and raw veggies.  Pay attention to your own needs and foods that keep your pouch happy.

I am not a fan of any one type of diet or anything that restricts your intake of healthy foods. 

Find what works for you and stick to it...and do not forget to try to introduce new foods or food groups in small quantities over time.

Do not avoid any one food group (unless you are allergic to it or have sensitivities) for too long or you may end up with deficiencies.

I am prudent...and cautious...and have a full panel of bloodwork done annually to make sure that nothing is missing in my diet.

Other than that, do what you feel is best for you...we are all so very different that it is really a made-to-measure lifestyle.
