Ted Talks- My Crohn’s Diet

My Crohn’s Diet

The above video is about what i find works for my Crohn’s disease- however Crohn’s disease will affect everyone differently-  the best advice i can give you is start with a plain diet and keep a ‘Diet Diary’ and note down how your body responds after eating certain foods- if you have any symptoms after eating a specific food, note it down and remove it from your diet.

Crohn's diet

Remember to try and supplement your diet with multivitamins, omega’s, green powders, calcium, protein and probiotics: Normal food is always better than the supplement version, however if you have a flare up a lot of food sources that contain the essential vitamins your body needs are found in food sources that are taxing on the digestive system (fruits and vegetables), therefore if you have removed these food sources from your diet you need to make sure you are replacing the vitamins and minerals via another source.

Foods to avoid:

  • Dairy
  • Fried foods
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Nuts
  • Leafy vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Tomatoes
  • Seeds
  • Spicy foods
  • Whole grains

As you can see it makes eating a balanced diet quite difficult when you remove all of these food sources

Not all of these will cause everyone a problem so by keeping a food diary you will be able to track what does and doesn’t work for you.
