: My doctor just informed me that she believes I am suffering from IBS. Where is the best place to start regarding what to eat and what not to eat? I know that everyone has theirr different trigger foods, but I don't even know where to begin to find which ones are mine. Thank you.

Hi Carrie,
Well you have start somewhere-- there are some definite triggers two sweetener that can cause diarrhea, cramping and bloating: fructose and sorbitol. Possibles are dairy, wheat and corn products ,sulfites, MSG, aspartame(NutraSweet), coffee, fried foods, chile, spicy food, black pepper,citrus fruit and juices.
You should take a fiber supplement such as Metamucil or Citricel as a bulk stool forming agent. A Water soluble fiber just promotes a gentle formed BM. All fiber is not the same.
God Bless---Harry
