this page lets you do everything except update your current weight. It makes no sense. I can never remember how to do it.

MR, to me, a bland diet consists of such foods as those which go down your throat and esophagus real easy, foods you do not have to chew. Some examples I can think of are: Tomato Soup, Oatmeal, Grits, Jello, Milk Shake, and nutrition drinks such as Glucerna (recommended for Diabetics). There are others I am sure. Just think of smooth foods, of those that are made in a blender. Think about foods that practically go down your throat by themselves without you having to chew.
Have you thought about being eligible for a power chair? Power chairs can go faster than an ordinary wheelchair! If your doctor recommends one, insurance may pay for a power chair, or at least most of the cost. Think about that possibility!

I just came from the helpforibs page. Thanx, everyone. I had no idea insoluable fiber could be BAD as well as good. I will certainly start following the recommendations and recipes and see if it helps

Hey there MR,

Don't give up yet, if spicy foods give you grief at the moment, maybe try some new herbs, they are less likely to give you grief. At the very least I would do a form of bland, but add the herbs to help you enjoy your food. I find when I'm in a particularly bad d stage, salads are out, sweet potato, turnip rutabaga and corn, things that are waxy and fibrous. When things settle down I'm able to go back to some things spicy and garlicky but the sweet potato rutabaga and corn (whole kernals) are a rarity in this house.

Good luck....

K

This site helped me figure out which foods to avoid (see Trigger foods) and which ones that I could eat.

Invaluable information. I hope that it helps.

Try going to the Mayo clinic site. I was on a bland diet when I had a flare but, it does not work long term because you are so limited in what you can eat. Hope it helps

I googled the words bland diet and got 145,000 links. I think you might find the answer you seek in those 145,000, lol.

Sorry you are sick. Lay off the Tex-mex and you will not have nearly as many problems. Cream of rice hot cereal is easier to digest and clean up.

I am SO tired of not making it to the toilet in time and having to clean myself up, especially since I am in a wheelchair with a broken ankle. I am sure all this urgency is the result of what I eat. I love Mexican, pizza, and Chinese, but would give it all up if that would solve my problem. I also love to add various spices, from cumin to chili powder, coriander to tumeric to cayenne, to whatever I'm cooking. Again, I would give them all up. I was hospitalized for an appendectomy in 2005 and was put on a "bland" diet. I think this is what I need to eat permanently. Does anyone, medical professional or otherwise, have a link to such a diet? I think if I had it in black and white what I can and CAN'T eat, taped to my kitchen cabinet, I could do it. I am desperate. Thank you. MR emoticon
