I have IBS and need to lose at least 50lbs. Problem is there are SO many foods that I cannot eat because of the IBS that would really help me lose some weight. I crave sweets and carbs. I cannot eat fruit, and only a couple of different veggies, no pork or beef, no dairy, no eggs, no whole grain anything, nothing that has any real fiber. I try to exercise every day by riding a stationary bike and going for a short walk. I am on blood pressure and high cholesterol meds. Any ideas ????View Thread
I have been suffering from IBS for 25 years now and have learned thru trial and error which foods I can and can't eat. My Dr. said for me to avoid foods that I have found to bother me, so that is what I do. I too avoid artificial sweeteners and fatty foods. I am lactose intolerant but I do occasionally eat yogurt which usually does not bother me. I have tried working in fruits and veggies but as I said thru trial and error I have learned which I absolutely can and cannot eat. I avoid processed meats like hot dogs and bacon but have tried turkey based meats and have a little better luck with those and enjoy them alot. I have also tried almond milk and cannot drink it. Thank you for your input.View Thread
