I am a 76 year old woman that has suffered with IBS for years which led to UC. This last year my condition of UC got worse and worse with bleeding, diarrhea, etc. I was getting weaker and weaker, homebound with no ability to do inside and outside chores. I had a sigmoidoscopy and a colonoscopy, and all doctors could do was tell me what my symptoms were. They gave me medications that were of no help at all; in fact they made me worse. I was given Elaine Gottschall's book, "Breaking the Vicious Cycle." I stuck with the instructions and within only a few days, much to my amazement, the bleeding and diarrhea stopped! I've been on this diet for 5 months, following it faithfully and feeling wonderful. All symptoms have disappeared! I am a new person with energy as I never had before. I have also lost 17 lbs, now a small woman, stabilized at 120 lbs since starting this diet. I have been able to expand my meal varieties on my own and have been able to make some delicious dishes. Now, my question is, when can I go back to a regular diet of eating carbohydrates and sugars (in moderation, of course) - especially concerning going to restaurants and friends' homes for meals? Also, can I use balsamic vinegar on my salad?
