hi ... well been to docs and he says ibs caused by over sensitivity now off the diet ... been ok this week till last night then pow!! the pains were incredibly bad ... i dont get the runs with it though more nausea and being sick .. i had had some prawns so dunno if that caused it or not ... having never had any food intolarence i my life or gut problems it is hard to get your head round really .. cos i cant put my finger on what is causing it cos had prawns before so .. is it ammounts of food ? .. seems wknds are worse ...no problems (touch wood )when at work but i walk round all day so maybe that helps with digestion eh? ... i reckon maybe for me its not so much what foods as how much maybe i need to space my food out more .. i am a little constipated i suppose but not majorly so .. but doc said sometimes increasing fibre after being on vlcd can exabberate the problem and even cause ibs in the first instance? .. i think by introducing to much fibre into the diet too soon .... anyway i will let you know how i go on in case it helps anyone else ... its a very complex ailment isnt it ?? seems it affects different people different ways ... but all i can say is the lipotrim diet now seems like a breeze in comparison to this !!! by the way since finishing re feed still lost a couple of pounds so good stuff apart from this dratted ibs!!
