I have just returned from seeing my GP about a recent flare-up which is still giving me trouble after the antibiotics.
I have been confused about what to eat during an attack. I was given a diet sheet to follow when symptoms are present. I will try and share this with all out there who are suffering. I have started this today.
If you have an attack the foods you can eat: white flour and baked products made with white flour eg, bread, pastry, pasta , spaghetti, macaroni. white rice, tapioca cornflower, custard and blancmange. Rice Krispies and Cornflakes, plain biscuits and crispbreads, crackers, rice cakes.
In the meat and fish dept: all types except those made with wholemeal pastry or breadcrumbs. Dairy: Milk, cheese,yogurts, cream,eggs.
Not sounding so bad so far???
Fruit and veg, thought they were taboo but avoid pips seeds,skins. Apple, apricot, cherries, grapefruit, grapes,kiwi,mango,melon,oranges,nectarines, peaches, pears, pineapple,plums, Rhubarb. Asparagus, aubergine, beetroot,carrot,celery,courgette, cucumber, leeks,lettuce, marrow, mushroom, peppers, potato, radish, swede, tomato.
But avoiding skins pips, stalks in every case.
The nice bit now: ice cream, lollies, sorbets, jelly, milk puddings, honey, syrup,jam/marmalade, (avoid pips and seeds) marmite, Bovril, corn snacks, boiled sweets, chocolate, toffee, seasoning, spices??? Yes that surprised ME!!!
Tea ,coffee, cocoa, Ovaltine, squashes, fizzy drinks, fruit juices, soups, oxo.
Well hope some good comes of this low fibre diet.
Instructed to go to normal/high fibre when the attack passes. I hope this helps because I have been totally confused up until now.
Good luck to you all
