I have UC that was diagnosed about 6 years ago. I've been on 1g mesalazine for most of the last year and have been off it again for a month or two. I weigh 10 stone 3lbs and I want to lose weight so that I'm 9 stone. My ideal weight for my height is between 7.5 and 10 stone so would like to be more in the middle so that I have a 'buffer' either side.
I've been doing the NHS 12 week diet plan for one week now. I'm eating plenty but I was a bit poorly last week with tummy trouble and I've been feeling feint quite a bit. I don't know if the feeling feint is to do with the IBD or diet. Any thoughts?
Also, any tips on safely losing weight with IBD without triggering a relapse?
