was it made in your kitchen or buy them pre-made Seb?
it wouldnt be the beef mince (red meat) but the filler to make the burger (mince patty) STICK together, causing you the problem. Can you make your own "beef burger patties" with mince and egg (egg will hold the patty together).

yeah Jet i made the burgers home made, thats why i'm a little confused. I just took the beef mince out of the packet, made them into burger shapes, added Thyme leaves and salt, then cooked them. Might double check the Thyme.

Cheers Jet,

From my pantry: "Sunbeam Australian Raisins": contain raisins (99.5%), vegetable oil.

These should be fine, Seb - I buy them often - some batches are 'drier' than others (been stored longer, maybe???) and they have a granular feel to them - in fact raisins have always been a bit like this, since I was a kid - it's just natural sugars, nothing added, so they should be fine for you.

When you do some CCN flour baking Seb, just chop up your treats and freeze them. Then you can keep it fresh and just get out what you need. It is expensive eating NSD - but as Tim said - think what you are saving on Big Gun meds... And if you freeze the "Seb's special stuff" then the rest of the family won't gobble it up, thereby keeping the cost down.

Hi Seb,

Ok the beef burgers...

Did they have any additives in them of any kind?
Did you test them with iodine to check?
What did you eat with them?
Any sauce, dressings etc?

Let's see if we can narrow it down a bit...

I don't think you should have a problem with red meat if it has not additives in it. But I know you have had a problem with meat before, haven't you? Was is steak last time?
Try to think what else you have had with the meat.

I am having the odd flare at the moment - I think one time it was stress-related but the others have defo been what I have eaten. Things trip you up all the time! It's a minefield sometimes isn't it?!! You have to be a detective to figure out where you went wrong all the time!
KickAS and help others do the same!

I don't think the mince had addatives, it was premium mince beef. I didn't test it. I just had 3 burgers with Thyme leaves and salt added. My parents were out so i was lazy that night and didnt bother with a salad, sauce or anything.

About the Steak. I originally thought it was the steak that caused me the problem but now i think it was the greek yoghurt. That was the first time i tried greek yoghurt and the next day i was in a horrible flare.

Right now im starting to think that maybe it's the chocolate and macadamias. Whenever i avoid these i seem to get alot better.

It sure feels like a minefield! But yeah i have definately noticed an improvement.

Update: In a horrific flare. I don't get it. It makes no sense.

The cranberry juice i tested is starch free so it cant be that. I had mushrooms, red pepper, lettuce and cucumber in my salad last night with chicken that had nothing on it....

Ive been eating raisons, dark chocolate and macadamias. Had a plum last night and pineapple. Bacon and egg for breakfast.. I just dont get it. The only thing i can point to is the dark chocolate and nuts but surely they cant put me in a flare like this. Frustrated right now

Hi Seb

Everything you mentioned is food that I would eat with no problem (except the nuts, I am not getting on too well with nuts at the moment - they can be very hard to digest). But others might have different views.

Could it be anything else that is setting you off? Are you very stressed out or anything like that? Injuries can set you off too. Or being unwell with something else.

So sorry that you are in a nightmare of a flare. I hope it dies down again as quickly as it came.

Hope you feel better soon.

remove the pepper from you diet - it's has a big irritative effect for your gut (hence it increses the gut permeability).

better remove the chocolate too (if u can) - i had terrible times with it also.

and about the yoghurt - just read some threads here - some will stand it, some will get flares from it. So until u get better...

also be carrefull about lettuce (cabbage also). Test it. I had a big surprise last evening when i've tested some cabbage i bought from the super-market - it turned black as a coal...

better test everything.

A quesstion:
ever had problems with your gut? dihareea more than others? Constipation more than others? Or strange pain inside your abdomen? sometimes to your right, some times to your left or anywhere? Ever thought your somach hurts (but without that acid taste you get in your mouth?)
34. Some rheumys say AS stage 1-2 some others say USpA
Also UC - rectocolitis.

UC curently in remission since feb 2011.
AS/USpA remission march-aug 2011. Flare - sept-nov 2011 (antibiotics). Remission now...

Modified NSD/SCD. Cook your own !
Mesalazine-Salofalk 500 mg/day

And the list of my medication has become verry short after some years on this diet smile

hey seb

i reckon it could be the dark chocolate. it has caffeine so it can have a similar effect on the gut to coffee. coffee gives me crook guts and so does too much dark chocolate. cocoa is also a bean and beans are high in lectins which can damage the gut.

Seb, I find plums (and most other fruit with stones eg nectarines, peaches, apricots etc) to be starchy most of the time.
