The day I started the diet I went on to read the reviews to see what people who had tryed it had to say. Reading the encouraging reviews gave me hope and inspired a dream that I would somday be able to write about my own success story. Nothing makes me happier than being able to say that this diet works and I can write to tell about it. Though it may be hard to follow the diet, it is very empowering. All doctors tell you is there is nothing you can do except take your pills and try not to be stressed out(wich is imposible when all you can think about is how sick you are getting). I also became quite the chef and am eating far healthier than I ever imagined I could. When my doctor saw my progress he was dumbfounded. After two months on the diet I was relived of all symptoms and was off prednisone. I had been on an average dose of prednisone before I started the diet and was still progresivly getting worse(also the diet prevented me from gaining wait from the prednisone). My doctor told me the next step was Remacade and even started talking about the posibilities of a colectomy. After I got better and got off my meds I was curious why I got better. Was it the Pills, or the diet? So I tryed an experiment. I ate foods outside of the diet for the first time in 3 months. I started with what I missed most. I had a beer. Two days later I felt somthing I hadnt felt in a month. I spent 2 hours in and out of the bathroom with excrutiatingly painful bool movements. I felt like my body was rejecting somthing that I had put in to it, and it was. Surprisingly several hours later. I felt fine. By the next day the symptoms were gone and I flet fine. This is what I have been through everytime I have accedentaly eaten somthing outside of the diet. Now that I know what happens when I eat the wrong food I make sure it does not happen anymore. If you have UC like I do than you have to try this diet! Get your life back on track with out the deadly sideffects of anti inflamatories. I think this diet can work for everyone. Its just a matter of being disiplined and persistant. Thanks and good luck.
