    sounds a bit what i was like until i went on holiday. i was eating high fibre and healthy foods . i was watching everything i ate and cut out tea coffee alcohol and fizzy drinks to try and cure my gastritis. Then i went on holiday to gran canaria and ate what i wanted and drank what i wanted including quite a lot of beer. Dont know whether it was the sunshine or something (healthy) i had stopped eating for a week but my gastritis cleared up and i am still not suffering from my normal ibs or gastritis. yet. Now im not saying forget healthy food and go on a binge but maybe change things around a bit

      Thanks for your input Jason00106. I am currently trying to eat more white rice and bland chicken. My usual "Small" meals have to be at least 100 calories more than usual, so it is now a normal size meal. My stomach is sticking out but I have only gained a small amount.

    I think you should make changes in you food habit, because too much fiber in the diet can cause bloating, gas, and constipation. You can relieve this discomfort by increasing their fluid intake, exercising, and making dietary changes. this may be the side effect of taking excessive fiber.
