  • Struggling With My Diet

    I can only eat sweet potatoes, carrots, green beans , mozzarella cheese and a tiny amount
    of chicken. Every thing seems to make me flare. I'm very depressed by it especially when I see
    all the lovely things other IC's eat that I can't!
    Any ideas please, I'm tired of being hungry. I also have IBS.

    Re: Struggling With My Diet

    One thing you could try is to look at the food list for items marked with a "+" sign (foods that can be soothing) and add some to your diet, one at a time, with a few days between additions. That way you can build a better diet. Also, it's easier for me if I plan ahead. Also, you might want to consult with a nutritionist for some help with meal planning.

    Warm hugs,
    Stay safe
