Jimmy Joy forum

NovaMosh - Would like to introduce myself :-)

Hey guys, just wanted to give myself an introduction since I’m fairly new to the forums :upside_down_face:

My name is Kori, I’m 24 and I’m from Scotland.

I used to be a computing student until I had a rather bad flare up and was diagnosed with a combination of both Crohn’s Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. :sweat_smile:

I’ve been regularly seeing a dietitian, as you can imagine having that combination of chronic illnesses mean you have to be very careful with your diet and the slightest change or variance would set me off for a few days of absolute torture. :confounded:

As such, my dietician usually puts me on a liquid diet for weeks at a time (Modulen IBD I believe the shakes were called), however they taste terrible and they aren’t too healthy to be on for long periods of time so I have to be taken off of them which I hate as I usually get ill again straight away. :expressionless:

I’m planning on going 100% Plenny Shake for a few months (possibly longer) as consistent diet helps out my symptoms a lot, combined with intermittent fasting as I feel drained and sick for a few hours after eating something so I tend to leave food until the evenings when I don’t have anything important to do.

I’ve tried being on Plenny Shake for a month straight before and I found it fantastic, the variety of flavours definitely stopped me getting bored. :slight_smile:

I’m looking forward to reading about everyone’s experiences (maybe sharing some of my own) and becoming a part of this community! :grinning:

P.S. To you amazing folks at Jimmy Joy, thank you for being the fantastic team that you are and your customer support is above and beyond! :grin:
