Does anyone get IBS when eating red meat?  My food diary is showing signs that red meat is causing some of my iBS.

Also i make my own health balls with cacao coconut cranberries rice puffs and coconut oil.  (i used to use all dried fruits, apricots, raisons, goji berries, until i read that they are triggers).  But I think the coconut oil make looser stools too..

Anyone have the problem with red meat?  When I went off all red meat for 2 weeks, I found my stools were alot better.

    I find I am better without red meat. I try not to eat a lot of meat.  In fact I had a home cooked lovely roast beef dinner at a friends.  Then on Thursday for some reason I bought some belly pork which I just love.  i cooked it with roast veg and a baked sweet potato ( I try to avoid potatoes.)  Have I suffered these past twenty four hours.  I started feeling very bloated then burning up.  This morning I have been in such pain and feeling nauseous and loose .

    I eat red meat very occasionally so I would not know but I was told fish was much better though still partial to the odd steak but I eat much more fish.

    I suffer with constipation as well as IBS so I fluctuate and have found if not been for a while cranberries, raisins and ch ch ch ch cherries work very well but would not recommend to those who are reducing their loo visits.

    I would definitely say if you are better without something then cut it out. Time is more of an enemy for me rather than any particular food trigger.

    Personally red meat doesn't affect me but then I don't really eat it as I don't like it. My mum has IBS and used to find lamb would go straight through her due to the fat content.

    Coco, coconut and dried cranberries are all awful for IBS so I don't think your snack will be helping you much.

    All fats trigger the gastro-coelic reflex so will move things along faster. So if your loose you want to really limit all fats.

      Breakfast is cornflakes or porridge with soya milk

      Lunch- tuna or mackerel with crackers/oatcakes/rice cakes and veggies (Tomato, cucumber, peppers and carrots are all ok for me.)

      Dinner - chicken /fish /quorn product with potato/Sweet potato /rice /GF pasta and veg (frozen veg mix)

      Snack - chicken and rice cakes or popcorn, fruit (apple Orange or banana)

      I have only one piece of fruit a day and no more than 3 servings of veg as that's what suits me. At the weekend I have things like sandwhicheds and toast with GF bread. Soya yoghurt, soya custard are ok for me.

      For fats I eat oily fish, olives, peanut butter (smooth only-nuts kill me) and olive oil but 1 tsp max and not when I'm loose.

      Quite a bit of crossover with me here. It took me a while to get to grips with porridge as when I first started I was ill repeatedly but persevered and now I can handle it.

      I have a salad for lunch so peppers, cucumber, celery and tomato

      Dinner - Can be anything from soup to chicken breasts to salmon . The chicken and salmon with carrots and peas.

      Snack - Odd Jaffa cake. I know not great but what can I say I like them. Also a few almonds about 6.

      I have 2 halves of fruit so half an apple with half a plum for example with a few grapes on top and seems to work for me. I stick to 2 veg though.
