mars haven Glad to hear you are doing well managing your UC. Its always good to hear more people are going Vegan. Also as far as eggs go remember that what you may be craving is a the fat and protein that eggs contain. Try eating hearty complete protein foods like Amaranth, and adding a nut puree. Try mixing Avocado and beans. Whenever you feel like you want some eggs replace them with a vegan food that will satisfy that craving.

meagan36 My sister-in-law had uc. We and our husbands are vegan. I don't know a lot of details, but she was in bad shape for a while. She ate a healthy vegan diet with tons of fresh produce and she was also gluten free while she was healing. Now she is doing well and considers herself healed, although I know medical professionals would say she's in remission or whatever.

A little background info about me:
I've been vegetarian for 3 years now. I've been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis since 2007. Changed my diet from a heavy meat diet to vegetarian diet to help with my UC symptoms. I love being vegetarian, but I am at a point where I can make the transition to vegan in hopes that my UC symptoms will get better.

I don't drink or eat dairy but I do currently eat eggs. Today marks 2 weeks that I've been egg free.

Anyone else on here with UC who has gone vegan?

Looking forward to reading all the threads!

Hi Bezzy, and welcome to the forum.

Because serious complications can occur from ulcerative colitis, it's advisable that you plan your vegan diet with the help of a Registered Dietitian who specializes in digestive disorders. A Registered Dietitian will work with you and your physician to help plan a delicious vegan diet that is tailored to minimize your UC symptoms and complications.

In the United States, you can find a local Registered Dietitian through this website: http://www.eatright.org . Just click on the "Find an Expert" button, located in the upper-right-hand portion of the webpage.

In the U.K., you can find a local Registered Dietitian on the Freelance Dietitians website: http://www.freelancedietitians.org/

In New Zealand, you can find a local Registered Dietitian through the Dietitians New Zealand website: http://dietitians.org.nz/find-a-dietitian/

In Canada, you can find a local Registered Dietitian at the Dietitians of Canada website: http://www.dietitians.ca/Find-a-Dietitian.aspx .

Emma JC hi Bezzy

The only info I can offer you is the example of my stepdaughter who is in her thirties and has had Crohns since she was 16. She has done well over the years and yet still had many episodes and after her dad and I went whole foods plant based starchivore vegan in October, she did also and the results for her were almost instant. She had gained a lot of weight over the past few years and she dropped all of that and her pains and irregularity cleared up very quickly. We are 'no added oils' and low salt as well and she has adopted that too. She eats lots of rice and beans, potatoes, vegetables and fruits.

She is hoping to be able to eventually stop her medications.

On Dr McDougall's website he has a whole section on colitis and crohns and quite a few success stories so maybe that would be helpful for you also. drmcdougall dot com and use the Search to find the areas on colitis

I wish you all the best with this journey to health as I have witnessed first hand the pain and stress that intestinal dis-ease brings.
