I have thought like you and still do sometimes. If I'm going to go 10x a day anyway, I might as well be eating what I want! But I have found from experience, it does get better when you try to stay on the diet. It's more a lifestyle change than just a diet. You can modify just about anything you eat and enjoy it too. I love pizza, so I have bought Amy's vegan veggies only pizza or the one with soy cheese. They really aren't that bad, the veggie one is yummy. My husband thinks so too. I have given up coffee whieh I LOVED and drink teas that are just as satisfying to me. I just gave up dairy and have found great substitutes, Rice milk, soy,etc. I still have my days when I have D or go a lot but it has gotten better and I know I will continue to get better.
I think Bob's advice about taking an Immodium or two is good too. It helps with the urgency and decreases the volume. It helps on the road to stability.
This board is great too for all kinds of advice! Sandy
