Hi all. I am new here. I have crohns and have recently decided to start Dr. David Kleins diet to heal myself. I am wondering if anyone here has done it and would have any advice on getting started. I am not on any meds right now but I am having troubles. I really have not eaten much in a few days. I just started the diet by eating only bananas and trying to get enough calories from them. Hopefully not to much information here but after 3 days, My BM's looked like a banana. Color was yellow like banana, and there were pieces of banana in them. Im looking for any advice / anyone maybe experience something similar. I know im having trouble digesting anything but im worried about calories.
I feel for you since I am also dealing with this problem.
Have you read Dr. Klein's book? It sounds like you might have since you're doing the diet.
If not it contains a lot of great info.
The next step would be to do a phone consultation with Dr. Klein.
I highly recommend it. Each person's situation is unique, so it requires a personalized plan.
I did a consultation with him last week, and things are starting to improve. For me the big change is implementing stress management. He gave me several suggestions, including this qigong routine by Lee Holden.
I have now learned that it was mostly stress that caused my Crohns issues.
Bananas are definitely the best. I usually start the day with melons, which are also very easy to digest.
Good luck, and feel free to contact me so we can share information.
