    IBS and SW. Any success stories?

    I am suffering with IBS at the moment and beginning to think SW is not a good match for me. I've stuck with it for nearly a year, but am sick of looking pregnant at work! I am not lactose or gluten intolerant, I think I just struggle with so much fruit and veg. If I lived on packets of crisps I would have a flat stomach!!! Does anyone have any good advice or positive IBS stories?

    From my Android Tablet, with added typos.

    Have you tried red days at all? They're less carbs. Maybe also try less fruit? I've had problems in the past with eating a lot of fruit.

    I have bid but found the opposite reaction for me with bloating but I get awful cramps and trapped wind which I take buscopan for. I agree with the above try out red/green days instead of ee or try to find if anything in particular triggers and and avoid that

    Hi toolilac
    I have been doing sw with ibs for a few months now- other than the initial usual bloating/cramps/wind that everyone seems to have in the beginning, I've been alright!
    food diaries are really helpful if you're not sure what tends to trigger your ibs- for me its usually when I've eaten a lot of meat/indulged so tend to stick to ee/green and meat is more a weekly treat. Stress is my main trigger to be honest.
    Plenty of water and peppermint tea/peppermint oil capsules with indulgent meals also help for me.
    If anything sw has helped- making more sensible choices has settled me right down.
    Hope this helps

    My mum joined a few weeks ago and also has IBS mainly triggered by fruits and veggies. She struggled a bit at first when she was trying to do it the proper way, but she's modified it after a chat with the consultant and is having less superfree than most on EE, but more than she was eating before she joined. I think she's not had as good losses but is still losing. I think she mentioned something about charcoal tablets for bloating?

    Hope you find something that works!
