I don’t know about IBS but I feel so much better since I started taking two tablespoons of Benefiber a day.

That’s what I use too.  I just do a tablespoon in the morning and in the evening.

I don’t know if I have IBS or not but lately I’ve been feeling like crap if I eat greasy food.  Similar symptoms to IBS.  I started eating yogurt every day and eating more fiber, and avoiding greasy food.  My problem is a little better.  I’m trying to drink more water too.

You might want to try yogurt with probios – Future Father-In-Law has IBS and that helps him a lot.

Even though you are eating healthier maybe you are still eating something that doesn’t agree.  i’ve been keeping a food diary and tracking symptoms so I can talk to my doctor about it whenever I can get an appointment.  I’m trying to see if I can pinpoint something that is making me feel that way. 😛

Also consider that any diet switch can be difficult on the body – if your system isn’t used to healthy foods and is used to processed crap, real food will upset your stomach (especially with IBS) for awhile. After eating healthy for long enough, it’ll go the other way and eating junk will make you feel sick again. It’s just getting there that’s a pain in the ass.

ohhhh yeah, I unfortunately have some experience with IBS … here’s what I’ve learned: cut the artificial sweetener out completely (diet coke, splenda, etc), fiber cereal 2x a day, mineral water, regular exercise, at LEAST 8 glasses of water a day, and a regular sleep schedule.  Also, yoga and acupuncture helps as well.  GL.

Moving out of state is tough.  Maybe it won’t be as bad as you think though.

Have you been tested for lactose and/or fructose intolerance? Those both cause me some bloating issues. If you aren’t already, I’d also try to avoid any bubbly beverages and using straws as those don’t help.

i havent been diagnosed with IBS but i have all the symptoms of it. I hate it because i look prego every night.lol. In the morning i dont looks as bloated.but ones i eat…forget it.lol. its sad…but i guess im use to it now. I take benefiber everyday and try to cut back on meats, and try to add veggies in my diet.

omg thing i do recommend for the bloating is peppermint tea. Its suppose to help IBS and i heard on the radio the other day..that celebrities sometimes take peppermint tea to reduce bloating.
