@louiseW:  I would definitely talk to your GP before starting any diet, I know you have to be careful with IBS. My mum has IBS and I know that previously changing her diet has really caused her discomfort.

Last thing you want leading up to your wedding is stomach problems!

I really love elanaspantry.com and lifeasaplate.com for recipes. They are usually categorized as “paleo” eating- but, mostly, they’re just grain free, whole foods recipes.

Im not sure what you mean, I think you just have to look at what you like and change what you think will bug your stomach.

I hate the term ‘clean’ eating though. People use it all the time to mean so many different things and its just not helpful. It seems like a fad term thats used to mask dissordered eating and food obsession as healthy eating. 

Everything in balance. Eat what make you feel good. Avoid what makes you feel bad. There is no such things as ‘clean’ or ‘dirty’ food, or ‘good’ vs ‘bad’ food. its all about moderation.

I thought clean meant organic and lots of raw.

I follow a blog called 100 Days of Real Food. It’s not a “diet” per se but there’s a set of rules and guidelines the author has set out for cutting out processed food which, I believe, can solve most health issues. The other thing I’d suggest is doing The Master Cleanse. In Tom Woloshyn’s book on it, he says it can cure IBS but he doesn’t use that term, he says “leaky bowel syndrome.”

The first I ever read about eating clean was the book The Eat-Clean Diet Recharged by Tosca Reno. I felt she did a really good job explaining it and it has shopping lists, recipes, and “cooler plans” that give you ideas to eat for all your meals in a week. 

Also, reagarding @teabiscuit:  I think eating clean is actually a really balanced way of looking at food- everything I’ve read about it is less about counting and measuring and obsessing and more about thinking about the quality of the food you are putting into your body. If you are being conscious of that, everything else kind of takes care of itself.

Yeah I would say talk to a nutritionist if you haven’t yet.  I know mine helped me alot.

I have a clean diet, but its a little protein heavy (b/c I weight train alot).  When I am less restrictive on my diet I do 40/35/25 Protein/Carbs/Fat breakdown.  I stick to mainly lean proteins (chicken breast, turkey breast, white fish etc).  I also fo greek yogurt.  For carbs, I do oats, brown rice, quinoa, ekeziel bread, beans, and sweet potatoes/yams (no flour).  I eat more vegetables that fruits and try to keep to low glycemic fruits (i.e. berries).  For fats, I do olive oil, nuts, and the occassionally higher fat protien (i.e. I do a top sirloin or salmon) once a week.    

If you want to get more restrictive, and realy focus on not consuming any foods that may irritate your system.  You can take out chocolate (replace with carob), dairy (do like soy or almond milk), eggs, flour, coffee, inflammatory spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, etc), and the list can go on.

Let me know if you have any more questions
