Diet Shakes & Colitis

Hey,
I suffer from ulcerative colitis and am also trying to lose weight and eat heathier.

I have cut down on meat to 1-2 times a week and am otherwise having salads of veggies for dinner. My stomache handle seemed to handle that well.

Now I've introduced diet shakes (I'm currently taking the fat blaster ones - some other ones have given me migrains) but my stomache doesnt seem to like this at all! What are your experiences?

Re: Diet Shakes & Colitis

Not eating meat won't help you lose weight..

I suggest you eat regular well-balanced meals, include protein in most of them. Eat more often.

You can add fibre supplements...and of course probiotics.

Are you on any medications?

Weight loss foods would contain whey protein and probably lots of artificial sweeteners...all which can cause gut discomfort and fast activity.

Real food changes and mild exercise to start are how you'll lose weight.
