Topic: Side effects of high fruit and soya milk diet
I'm a CC sufferer, my tumour was resected last October. About a month ago I started to research nuritional advice and, based on advice from the UK's Bristol Centre as well as other sources, a few weeks ago I modified my diet as follows: increased fruit intake (I've been eating a healthy diet in this respect for years, the main change was to add a couple of smoothies per day and to eat a wider variety of fruit) and cut out dairy products (I replaced milk with organic soya milk, stopped eating cheese).
Within a week of the change my bowel habits changed in that I urgently needed to open my bowels 4-5 times/day about 30mins after any food even a snack, compared with once/day previously. My doctor advised me to revert to my previous diet and about a week later my bowel habits are now back to normal.
Not sure if it was the smoothies or the lack of dairy produce or the soya milk which caused the change, my doctor advises that I should try just one diet change at a time to see what happens.
Has anyone else found such results from a super-healthy diet ?
