Almost any food can be a potential problem. However, we have found that by far the most common intolerance for MCers is gluten. The second most common intolerance is dairy, which requires that all sources of milk protein be eliminated. Unfortunately, that means no cheese, ice cream, yogurt, butter, milk, etc. Soy appears to be the third most common intolerance. Quite a few have problems with chocolate, although for some it is because they have a soy intolerance and cannot tolerate the soy lecithin used in most chocolates.

A warm welcome from me too, Janie Bee!

When you have a chance, I'd love to hear more about your issues. Have you found other intolerances besides the gluten?

If I found out I had one day to live, I would eat a grilled cheese sandwich and wash it down with a vanilla milkshake. And eat a whole Carvel ice cream cake for dessert. YUM.

Love,

Polly

Your food choices sound really good, Polly. I'll have to think a while about mine. I miss so many things........ Sad Chocolate would be in there in some form or other.

OK Joan! What's it gonna be, in addition to chocolate? LOL!

You know, I have been tempted to just skip that swamp water cleanout before colonoscopy, and instead, spend a few days just pigging out on all of my intolerances. It would be such a pleasant way to do the prep, don't you think? HAHAHAHA.

Love,

Polly

I did that!!!

They said to eat low fibre stuff for a couple of days beforehand, like yoghurt and stewed apples and white bread. So I did. Mmm butter. Cheese. Greek yoghurt. drool.

Then when I took the horrible drink, yes I had a couple of BMs, but it was really a pretty minor matter since I was mostly clean. The doc commented on the high quality of the bowel preparation! lol!!!

Lyn!

You actually did it? That's cool! I am supposed to have another colonoscopy next week but I think I will postpone it for a mo. or two. Am just not in the mood for it. I will seriously consider doing a "natural" cleanout using my intolerances. Good to know that it works!

Love,

Polly

Polly,

Laughing Laughing How does one "get in the mood" for a colonoscopy? It never occurred to me that was even possible. Laughing Laughing

I know what you mean though. It's always borderline intolerable, at best, and there are certainly times when it's more intolerable than at other times. Also, as a professional procrastinator, I'm always happy to see others enjoying the benefits of the "sport". Laughing

Love,
Tex

Hey Polly,

It probably helped that when I did this I wasn't eating a large volume anyway. That meant the naughty stuff was a high percentage of my total daily food, and there just wasn't a lot to clean out. YMMV.

Tex,

I guess it did sound kinda funny to say I wasn't in the mood. Whoever IS????? HAHAHA. I was supposed to go in Jan. and I rescheduled for Feb. Then yesterday I cancelled until the end of March. It's really inconvenient just now. Next weekend I'm going away with some girlfriends, and I didn't want to be all wiped out (pun intended) from the procedure.

Lyn,

For my first 2 colonoscopies I was having diarrhea, and I think it was a blessing. Because...........both times I was completely cleaned out after drinking only 1/3 to 1/2 of the Nu-Lytely. So, I really think there is something to this.

Love,

Polly
