My first post on this board!
For the past 25 years or so I have suffered badly with IBS and past year had become a lot worse to the point I got so anxious when I had to use public transport in case I needed the toilet that I was starting to get panic attacks. ISB tablets just masked the problem and most of the time didn’t work so I had to take a serious look at my food intake as would be first to admit it was terrible, with junk food, satuated fats etc.
So have cut out the following and oh my word, the difference is amazing! I can actually travel to places now and no longer have griping pains, wind and need to be constantly near a toilet
Things I’ve cut out
Sunflower oil – funnily enough this was a major problem, noted by after eating Walkers crips with high sunflower oil content had immediate stomach pains and cramping
Cakes/Biscuits/bread and everything that involves these types of carbohydrates and sugars
Most dairy/(incl horseraddish sauce)/cheese
Anything with high fat content (stomach unable to process which meant rush to the toilet)
You need to be strict with the diet as if you sneak in a small cake or something high fat then you’re back to square one again so needs a lot of will power but oh, is it worth it! J
Understand everyone is different but this is what has worked for me and so wish i had done this sooner.
