Thought I would chime in since I asked the question. More so than "how" I am wondering "should" I add some vegetables back in. I have severe, severe digestive issues that just have not gone away. I went from a flat stomach to pregnant looking in one day back in 2008 (on a Paleo diet) and have been that way ever since. On ZIOH I was told we don't need good bacteria if we are eating ZC. Now a doctor on ZIOH is saying we DO need them and I need to rebuild gut flora. Not sure how to do that on ZC. Also, I had a very strong reaction to probiotics and fermented foods. It makes all my symtpoms (daily headache, backache, fatigue, constipation, abdominal distention, brain fog, anger issues, trouble concentrating, swollen eye lids, fluid retention, and more) worse. I assume this is die off, but die off usually subsides while my symptoms just continue and after about a week of horrible pain and more I stop taking the probees and ferments.
So what am I worried about? Is adding veggies the best thing to do or will it make things worse? I already know they make the distention worse but I assume that's in the short term? Also worried about weight gain.
