I know that when my children get sick the doctors will put them on what is called a B.R.A.T diet. It's banana's, rice, applesauce, toast. Do you take vitamins? I know iron constipates but you can't take too much of it. Ask your pharmacist I'm sure he/she would know.
I agree with soulcatcher, i had a real bad problem with dia. I ate rice(works really well), bananas, oatmeal, and bread. Of course it didnt stop the dia. so im on a antispasmatic med, but the foods do help slow me down.
Thanks for the info. Do rice, bananas, oatmeal, and bread have the nutrients a person needs to only just eat them? What about meat and veggies? Or do you need to take a multi-vitamin with that diet? I have been taking immodium AD about 3 times a week for about a year and then I had to up it to every day and now it's not working as well. So i'll have to try changing my diet.
