handsome, what you are not realizing is that those foods that hurt your tummy are polysaccharides (multiple sugars). If you really want to find out if your symtoms can disappear you should try the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. Go to www.pecanbread.com. This diets works for a lot of people. Me being one of them. It is absolutely a Godsend! I have been on remission since I started the diet. It's hard at first but them gets really easy.

Handsome try keeping a food diary or log of which foods bother you. Each of us differ in what bothers us. Or speak with your GI about the possibilty of seeing a nutritionist. And please do not believe any ad or someone who claims a diet that states a specific diet will cure crohns. Its not there and alot of these diets can be very detrimental to a crohns patient.

I know if 'm in a flareup a low residue diet does help as the food are very gentle on the digestive system. Hon it's just a matter of finding what works for you

I find smoothies to be a great way to start the days. I use some protein powder and mix in some spinach and fruit. Since it's all blended it's pretty easy for me to digest.
