Everyone is different and only you know what you can/can't eat. This is a general list that alot of people with IBD folow, including me. I used to be scared to eat also. I think it made things worse. Eat and have fun with it, just be careful of what your eating.I also cook everything organic. (everything I can find that is.) I found that this helped me alot. I felt a great difference. If I think of anymore I'll repost. If you have any questions let me know.
