Oh chickies!

I had that eating setback 2 weeks ago, got back on Phase 1 and had another intestinal setback. My GI Doctor attributes it to South Beach and doesn't want me following the plan anymore. Which of course, makes me terribly sad. And depressed as it works for me, usually.

I am going to go see a dietician/nutritionist in a few weeks as well. It seems that all the raw foods I consume, sans any white carbs, does a number on my stomach/GI tract. I feel like a complete failure and want to binge but am not. I am going to take what I know from Ph2 for now, continue eating wheat and brown rice products and will introduce potatoes back into my diet as well. I need to eat processed foods so I am going to do the Kashi meals paired with a salad and minimize all/most of my sugar intake.

But I am so sad to have to leave you all I feel like a hypocrite if I stay - how can I dole out advice I can't take myself? I am so frustrated because I don't know what is wrong with me physically and it's hard to overcome the mental - but I have to find what is going to work for both sides of it.

I am leaving now to join the ReCenter by us and go work out. Hopefully, I can keep on top of portion control and continue eating mostly Ph2 + processed foods. I hate to even think about the processed stuff as it goes against everything I know! Ugh, now I am babbling.

I guess it's TTFN. Do good out there!!!!

Jenne, YOU are not a failure! You tried hard to follow SBD, despite your digestive system's situation, and you did very well. Now, it's time to look after your health and find an eating plan that works well with your system so you can stay healthy!

I agree! I can only begin to imagine how frustrating it is to have those GI issues and be told to eat the goods you are trying hard not to eat! I, for one, would love to still see you here, with your humor and support and friendship.

hi there, is your doctor recommending a low residue diet? He can't be recommending a processed food diet..at least I hope not.

I have crohn's disease so I know about intestinal woes- LOL
My gastro said I'm the most severe case he's ever seen! Yay me, I knew I'd be best at something! LOL

keep in mind too that most doctors know very little about nutrition , I heard they only spend one day in their entire medical education on nutrition?!
So feel free to experiment with your body!! Perhaps you were just going a bit too gung ho on the fibrous veg? You could cut that back but still have lots of lean protein, cooked non fibrous veggies and lowfat dairy. That's STILL SB as I see it! LOL
If you ever want to vent about IBD woes feel free, there is also a very supportive website out there for this kind of thing, very informative if you want to pm me.
Take care and don't feel discouraged!

Not low residue - that is only when I have flare ups of whatever it is I have (I was tested for IBD, IBS, Crohn's, Ulcerative, Ischemic, Celiac -- all negative). He wants me to balance fresh veggies/fruits and lean meats with some processed foods to give my intestines a rest.

I am going to try as Ph2 as I can be working other stuff in. Thanks for the support. I just feel like a hypocrite and like this was yet another lifestyle change I couldn't stick to. Regardless of why...

I'm sorry.
You've done great, there's no reason to feel like a failure - just take care of yourself and get feeling good again. And whether or not you can follow SBD anymore I hope you'll still pop in to our daily chat threads and let us know how you're doing.

Jenn, you are our friend here. That doesn't change and you are trying to figure out how you "can" eat with your medical situation. It sounds like you are going to follow a "modified" plan anyway. I am one to realize just how important the daily contact with friends here is to me and I encourage you to keep checking in as you work towards a plan that works for your body.

Don't feel bad at all - you are doing what is right for your body, which is what this whole thing is all about. I do hope you will stick around here!
