Project Title

Effects of an Intermittent Reduced Calorie Diet on Crohn's Disease

Project Description

There are currently no widely accepted dietary recommendations for managing Crohn's disease (CD) and maintaining remission. If successful, this study will not only prove the utility of a safe, non-invasive, low calorie, plant-based diet in improving clinical disease in CD patients, but also provide these patients with a practical diet that they can use to control and manage their disease.
