Bacon is good!

Baconator (hold the bun) has helped me get through many flairs.

I found that the low-residue diet that you follow before a scope procedure was a good fit when I was flairing. All complex carbs (fiber) seemed to send me to the bathroom. So what did that leave me to eat? processed meat and dairy. I found the baconator sandwich gave me the most energy, and kept me from feeling like I was malnurished.

Sometimes eating unhealthy has its place.

Hope this helps someone!

This subject is so interesting and I was wondering if anyone has any idea why the Baconator has such wonderful flare relieving results. We had a great family conversation about this yesterday (Mom's Day), because there are 3 of us in our joint family (ours plus our son-in-laws family) that have IBS and UC. Is it just the bacon or the combo of the cheese and whatever is in the Wendy's burgers? I do know that when I eat bacon (which is not often, although I love it and could probably devour a pound by myself!) I do seem to get some relief.

Any other "testimonials" or comments on this? I just may start on my one pound bacon breakfast anytime now, although my spring flare is over.

I only wish the internet was around back in my UC days. I would have gave this idea a shot then, even though I avoid red meat now. The reason for this is living with a colon, even with UC still beats the hell out of living with a J Pouch. All I can do is look back at the past now and regret my decision. Oh I could try to make the most of my future, but depression is killing me now, thanks to my J Pouch.

How strange. Bacon makes me cramp. But I eat it anyway, of course.

I agree with you. I LOVE bacon,and even tho I don't eat a lot because of the calories/fat, when I do eat it, I load up. The best, the very best. And, we are going to Wendy's for Baconator's tonight!!! Just for the heck of it!!!!!

Why don't they just call Baconator's "Coronarynators?" After looking at the nutrition in them, I can understand why this http://caloriecount.about.com/calories-wendys-baconator-i128257 site wound up giving them a grade F.

I have trouble making myself stop eating when we have bacon. I eat my meal, and then I go back to the kitchen for "just one more piece" until there's no more left. And then I end up in pain all night. But I can't help it.

I won't give up my bacon! As I said before, I don't eat it often, but when I do, I enjoy every bite with a big smile on my face. Had bacon and eggs this morning. Enjoyed the Baconator and didn't bother to think about the bad side of it!!! Good stuff!!!!!
