What types of foods ulcerative colitis patients should eat?

Balanced diet. You may eat any foods which do not bother you. There are no specific forbidden items. I encourage you to eat a balanced diet with some fibre. Strong oral peppermint has been suggested to help alleviate some symptoms of ibd. Good luck.
Autoimmune Paleo. The best way to improve colitis is by completely stopping foods such as grains, lentils, potatoes based items. Avoid nightshades (peppers, tomatoes, eggs) and milk protein since they cause inflammation Healthy foods: fish, meats, vegetables, avocados, some saturated fat (butter, coconut oil), olive oil are very effective. Probonix, vitD3 10k IU/day. You should feel a difference in 1-4 months.
