Hi Mika. Oh yeah, I can feel

Hi Mika. Oh yeah, I can feel your pain. I'm 8 weeks into Structured Eating and I'm having terrible bloating and digestive issues. It led me straight into a slip last Thursday night - it was more to relieve the pain than anything. I am in an odd situation - I had a bacterial infection called C Diff (Kind of like having MRSA in your gut) for 7 months and that alone will take at least a year to heal. Add in the damage that I did with bulimia and I've got one sensitive gut, that's for sure. I had to restructure my SE plan around digestive friendly food and it has helped a lot. I got a lot of great advice here on this site (you can read these on my What Went Wrong blog). The following have been a godsend:
Whole Golden Flaxseeds soaked in water. I eat about 3 spoonfuls a day.
Kefir. I think it's really gross but it's wonderful for healing bellies - I mash up banana in it.
Fennel tea
Lactose free milk (I only put milk in my tea and I'm not sure if it's a problem but I switched to the Lactose free kind just to be on the safe side)
No raw veggies - cooked veggies only
Plain greek yogurt

These foods are easy on your tummy while helping to restore your gut flora. I realized I was actually eating too much fiber and that my digestive system just couldn't handle it. Even though I was eating enough I was having crazy hunger and binge urges and now that's gone away. And I no longer feel that someone is ripping my stomach out all day long - argh, the pain!!!! :-)

Hang in there sweetie, the only way out is through. Take care. Laura xx
