I've thought about it, and wonder if some lectins are a problem for me. I don't think it is all lectins for me, as things like beans actually seem to help my GI. But I do wonder about the nightshades like tomatoes and eggplant, as I flare more in the summer when those things are abundant, so last summer and this summer I cut out all eggplant and most tomatoes...they say it is the skin and seeds mostly so tomato sauce and ketchup and BBQ sauces should be ok.

So, yeh, I've read about it and considered it, and have been experimenting with less eggplant and tomato.
