Went from 106lbs to 98lbs. Trying to gain the weight back but im on a special diet for ulcerative colitis. How can I prevent any more weight loss?

You may find that. Milk and milk products are the villains. I don't know what makes up your "special diet" but I do know that stopping milk is beneficial in that awful disease. Unfortunately mental stress enters the picture all too often and some form of biofeedback or meditation (etc) is always helpful. This is not freudian psychology.

Remember to take vitamin B12 in a vegan diet. Read more...

Helps many, flora. Many people with UC have had significant improvements following the SCD but there is no formal research proving it helps (and none proving it doesn't).
