Hi PB. I need some advice, if that's OK?
When I tried ketosis before, I had the experience of feeling amazing, but in my effort to find different things to eat I ended up re-flaring my IBS on coconut or too much protein or avodaco. I also ended up eating very little, followed by being ravenous, which also flared me. I gave up, and since then it's been a rocky road, but I have managed to completely detox from artificial sweeteners and caffeine for over a month. That's the hardest thing I've ever done. My IBS is horrible at present, so I want to give ketosis another try.
I need some ideas about what and how much to eat.
I have to exclude all nuts, seeds, dairy, and raw veges. I can tolerate smallish amounts of coconut cream, well cooked brassicas, leafy greens, and other veges (pumpkin, carrots, beets, tomatoes, peas). Sometimes I have real difficulty digesting cold or reheated proteins, or too many eggs. Overeating flares me, too - so letting myself get so hungry that I can't stop eating is a bad move.
On the plus side, I don't seem to have much trouble with digesting fat.
With those parameters, can you suggest some meals? I also need to plan for days when I drive a lot - things that don't need to be refrigerated and can be eaten with fingers.
I felt so good for some of the time last time - I want it back, but consistently this time! Any help is very gratefully received.
(I've tried probiotics and digestive enzymes - they flared me. I have lots of healing to do, so part of my motivation with ketosis is to completely avoid flares for a really long time to allow healing)
