  • Ic diet help!

    Hi! I was just wondering if you all could help a bit. I have a hard time trying to follow the IC diet and I always end up eating something I am not supposed to and then pay for it. I have been in a flare for two days because I probably eat something I was not supposed to. I don't know what to eat or what I am suppose to be eating. Can you in detail tell me what you eat? I have been eating plain turkey sandwiches since yesterday ( just white bread and smoked turkey), that is it. What do you pleople eat?

    You'll find the 2009 IC/PBS Food List at the link in my signature below. It's printable (you'll want to print it "landscape") and is an excellent resource. I keep my list handy so I can check it when I have questions.

    Warm hugs,
    Stay safe

    Have you checked the ICN Shop?
    Click on ICN Shop at the top of this page. You'll find Bladder Builder and Bladder Rest, both of which we are finding have excellent results.

      Cured and smoked meats contain preservatives and other food additives that may induce inflammation. The Interstitial Cystitis Association suggests that those who have IC limit or avoid processed meats such as sausage, hot dogs, pepperoni, pastrami, bologna and canned crab as a means of preventing or reducing symptoms.
