Foods To Avoid With IBS - Discover 3 Simple Strategies To Help You Get Rid Of Your Symptoms Quickly

By Alison Harris

Imagine you are a get together, mingling with friends and family, enjoying yourself and really having a good time.

You really could not have wished for a better ending to the day, when of a sudden you feel a tightness in your stomach. It is such a strong pain that it grips the whole of your stomach and the next thing you think is "where is the toilet?"

Sadly you know what it is. It is the pain and diarrhea associated with your irritable bowel syndrome. You know something you have eaten has triggered that pain and diarrhea but unfortunately you do not know which food it was.

You know right from that minute that your evening is over.

Later on in this article I will reveal a resource that will provide you with the most comprehensive list of foods to avoid with IBS but we will look at 3 things you can you do to help your irritable bowel syndrome.

1. Gluten: This is a protein that is commonly found in a lot of grains including but not restricted to wheat, oats, rye, spelt, and barley. The first thing you need to do is go on a gluten free diet for about 2 weeks.

This means you have to pay close attention to the foods you are eating and read food labels and even over the counter medicines because even some of the foods and medications you least expect may contain gluten.

You should see a significant improvement in your symptoms once you eliminate this protein from your diet.

2. Coffee: I used to suffer from IBS myself so I have experienced some of the symptoms e.g. gas, bloating, stomach making noises, spastic contractions of the colon, stomach cramps etc.

I noticed a significant improvement in my symptoms the very next day I stopped drinking coffee.

You see coffee is an acidic food and it will increase the acidity of your stomach. If you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, it is important that your stomach is not too acidic.

One of the simplest ways to reduce the acidity of your stomach is by consuming more alkaline foods.

3. Tailor your diet to your personal biochemistry: This means that you have to eat according to your nutritional type. We are not all designed alike and one diet does not fit all.

This means you have to know your specific nutritional needs according to your personal biochemistry,metabolism and genetic makeup.

We have briefly touched on 3 steps to IBS freedom but there is a long list of foods to avoid with ibs and other simple steps you can take that will ensure you never experience any of the symptoms of IBS again. - 30540
