IBS Diets


Diets, like clothes, should be tailored to you.
Joan Rivers


Eat more fibre, no actually eat less fibre.  Eat plenty of fresh fruit, no on second thoughts don’t do that either.  For most IBS sufferers,  conventional  dietary advice would have catastrophic consequences.  Learning to tailor a diet to your own personal  IBS requirements should be one of the first goals in tackling IBS.


Whilst certain foods have universally detrimental effects,  for most of us, it is a case of trial and error.  Going through the painfully slow process of tracking these issues may seem to be excessively time consuming, however the long term benefits will always outweigh the negatives.


Unique


We are unique, despite this we have a tendency to try and  pigeon hole most phenomena.  The broadness of the term IBS renders the use of simple dietary tips pointless.  A constipation sufferer, will not improve if given the identical advice of a diahorrea sufferer, however both fall under the IBS bracket.


Individual foods can also provoke different reactions in different people.  Certain foods high in fructooligosaccharides,  such as peppers and onions may cause bloating and discomfort, but not rapid movements.   Some may be able to digest gluten, others not.  Learning what is right for you and you alone should be your priority.  As stated some foods are notorious and offer a starting point, however it can be highly surprising so of the foods that you personally can eat.


Our advice  on the subject of IBS diets is clear, tailor any diet to your own condition.  Always do your very best to try and get a balanced diet, however do so in a way that leaves you comfortable.  For those who end up with a highly restricted diet, supplementation may need to be investigated to ensure that the body is nutritionally balanced.
