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!

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!
