: Hi. I have recently been diagnosed with IBS....and of course been told thta I would have to change my eating habits. To cut out "heavy meals" and so forth. So I am looking for suggestions, different recipes and so forth on the "safe" foods I can eat that won't irritate it so much.
: Ex: I was sitting around with my family last night eating some of there Halloween candy....and this morning, I am paying. I have been cramping ever since, and have really been hurting. SO I know I need to do something. I am a veggie eater, love salads and so forth. What can I eat as far as that that won't make me feel so bad? Also, and suggestions on what I can do to releive the bloating, cramping, and irritation that I get. I have been told that Ginger Root is a ggod thing to take for stoamch trouble, but it really doesn't help. Nothing helps when it gets this bad.
: Thanks so much for any advice and suggestions you have. Please feel free to email me about this. Greatly appreciated.

Hi Michele. There is so much advice on this board, I would take some time and go back and read all of the messages you think might apply to you. Pay paticular attention to Harry's posts on fiber therapy, he is very knowledgable in that area. As for foods that might bother you, this is a trial and error thing. There are times I will eat something knowing full well that I am going to pay for it later. You just have to ask yourself if it is worth it. In my case, I guess sometimes it is!! Seriously, I would keep a journal and keep track of the things that had an affect on you. Good Luck, Janet
