I have Crohn's Disease and Colitis, my dietician and nutritionist has told me that vegetables are my enemy. I can eat carrots and green beans with
safety. Fruit-wise, I can eat bananas and tinned pears with safety. My prescribed diet is white bread, proteins and fats. My body cannot safely
process husk and skins, certain spices and fibres. Anything that bulks up in my colon will make me ill.
I am 57, have a very physical job, go to the gym three times a week and at 5' 8" [not tall] I weigh an extremely constant 68 kilos. My diet has to be
supplemented with protein and vitamin drinks and I need 3000 calories per day to maintain my balance.
As with anything, balance is key. Eat too much and you will put weight on. Lead a sedentary life as well and your weight gain will be the wrong kind.
I have been told by my nutritionist that the body, by design, will find it's own way. In nature, if something tastes bad, then it's probably best
avoided...I also believe the whole cholesterol hype is just a pile of rubbish in order to ply the populace with statins. My doctor put me on them and
my body body rejected them, my joints filled with pain and aches, which ceased once the statins were dispensed with.
Everyone is different and diets should be tailored to suit one's self.
