Foods to Avoid with Colitis

Ulcerative Colitis can be caused by many different factors, but it is also a disease that you can manage it at home naturally instead of paying those high doctor and medical bills. There are a lot of natural remedies for colitis and there are also Colitis diets that you can follow to help with the symptoms. These diets will help you to understand what foods to avoid with Colitis. Your diet is not the only thing you need to consider but Colitis diet is still important for those suffering from Colitis.

Managing fiber intake is an issue that people that suffer with Colitis face. Soluble fiber is good for their diets but insoluble fiber is not so good because it will irritate your colon and can cause inflammation. This would include whole grain food and veggies like broccoli and cabbage. Other foods to avoid with Colitis are the skins of some fruits, such as apples and grapes because they are entirely insoluble fiber.

Another group of foods you should avoid with a Colitis diet are anything that contains gluten. All grains, breads, and processed food ingredients contain gluten so you should stay clear of these things. Most of the processed food will have a thick agent containing gluten, such as, seasoning, sauce, and canned foods should not be in your diet plan. If you suffer from Colitis you can easily avoid these foods by cooking from scratch at home. There are also some drinks like packaged drinks and some beer that contain gluten so make sure you read the labels to find out what is in them.

Diary products can cause problems in your digestive tract in you digest them in large portions. Two or three ounces a day is probably a good limit. Anything over that may cause inflammation and can lead to lactose in your colon. So dairy isn't really one of the foods to avoid with Colitis, just make sure that you keep track of your daily intake of dairy and you should be OK.

Just remember that everyone is different. One food might cause a bad reaction for one person and not even effect another. Try to keep track of the different foods that you eat and make a note if they make you feel sick or uncomfortable. Use a food journal if you need help keeping track. Once you get in the hang of it and used to using it you will be able to decide if similar foods would be a good idea to try or not.

I know that Ulcerative Colitis can be a scary condition, but it can be managed and controlled with the proper Colitis diet. Keeping track of what you eat and the reactions, cooking from home, or eating out with gluten-free options is a good stay to taking control of your Colitis. Now that you know some of the foods to avoid with Colitis you are well on your way to living as normal of a life as you can.
