    Hello everyone :)

    I'm Ruth and up until 2 weeks ago I was on Slimming World. Lost 6.5lbs in two weeks but struggling with my recently diagnosed (today!) Severe Irritable Bowel Syndrome, my Dr has told me to leave SW. I put 2lbs back on in the next 2 weeks and then stopped going.
    However at the top of end of 13 stone and in an overweight category with my weight and BMI my Dr has said I need to lose weight to stop my chronic Acid Reflux and Indigestion.
    I really don't know how to go about this. I'm 21 in August and don't want to feel the way I do! I could do the normal eat more fruit and veg drink more etc but it makes me ill so im stuck! I'm in despair because I feel as if I have no way of getting out of this!
    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Ruth

    Hi Ruth, So sorry to hear that you are having such difficulty with SW due to your IBS. I suffer from this too so I know how debilitating it can be.
    I am presuming that you most probably were doing the programme where you eat a LOT of fruit and veg, altho' I don't really understand the SW regime. Would it not be better if you did a calorie counting weight loss routine and that way you can incorporate the foods that are most suited to you which is what I find much better.

    Do hope you manage to get things sorted and can establish exactly what foods you are sensitive to.

    All the very best to you .... :)
