slimfast drink,equal,and type D IBS

I am starting classes tomorrow and I am nervous that my IBS will kick in.I have classes 5 days a week.I tend to skip a meal if I know I have to make a trip(College is 30 miles from my house).I was wondering if slimfast drinks might be a good choice for a light meal?Also does aspertame irritate the condition?I have started taking the calcium supplements.Thank you for that wonderful tip!!It really does help.
Thank You!

Re: slimfast drink,equal,and type D IBS

Avoid Slimfast like the plague! It contains Guar Gum which is many times used as a laxitive. Guar Gum is found in many things that you wouldn't think about such as some popscicles. I have many friends that were on SlimFast. When they stopped, the diarrhea let up or stopped completely. I used SlimFast for a while, and it did the same to me. Good Luck!
