I have AS and Crohn's disease. A clean Mediterranean diet and probiotics saved me. The first thing I did was cut out all processed (fast) foods then I went on to eliminate other foods that caused me to flare- beef, pork and artificial sweeteners.
It took a long time but was well worth it. I suggest taking it step by step and talking with your doctor. Every patient is going to be different.

Eliminate breads, sugars, replace with vegetables low sugar fruits. If you do Pinterest there are oodles of recipes...

The only thing I know of for AS is to try eliminating starches. There have been some studies supporting this but no actual "diet". I did it with some success several years ago but it was damned near impossible because I was also a strict vegetarian at the time. Thinking of giving it another try now that I eat meat and could have a more varied diet.
