I began your program last Friday (5/23) and I am beginning to feel the benefits.My cramping has pretty much subsided but I am still struggling with diarrhea so any suggestions would be most appreciated.
My diet consists of the following:
Steamed veggies:parsnips, squash, turnip greens, kale, spinach, carrots, and brussel sprouts and I drink the water used.
½ cup of Brown Rice at each meal with 3 tablespoons of pearl barley.I am currently soaking some of the brown rice and will begin to use it once it sprouts
½ grilled chicken breast or canned salmon with a little salt
¼ of plain yogurt
The other question is the medication I am taking.I currently take (8) 400mg tablets of asacol and 5mg of prednisone each day.Should this be tapered off as I progress through this plan??What do you suggest?
Also, how long were you on this diet before you began adding foods back in?I am NOT a vegetable person so it is tough knowing this is the majority of what I can have.I do plan to stick to this plan religiously because I am to the point I do not want to leave the house… Anxiety levels get too high not knowing if I would be able to make it to a bathroom….(horrible feeling that can not continue).
Thank you so much Sheldon and I look forward to becoming healthy once again
