I just had a colonscopy the other day and it was clear so Dr thinks it is just IBS. However, I am also insulin resistant so need to eat reduced carb. I am planning on call the dietician that my Endocrinologist referred me to this week and pay whatever to find out what she has to say about how to eat for both conditions since as previously noted, what I am supposed to eat for IBS is what I am supposed to avoid for the IR.

I have read that if you balance soluble with insoluble fiber at a meal that you may have better results but I know that doesn't work for everyone.

You know Mike you're not that far from the truth, especially if you have it bad. I'm in and out of it, but always always vigilant. I take many nutritional supp's I workout alot and need to have more than what I get from my breads, rice and protein. I don't see any way around it.

Take care

Salads - AHA!! I never really considered them harmful because thats the first thing people switch to when trying to lose weight. Raw Veggies!! DUH!!! I've always said about desserts and sweets "Why did God make things that taste so good be so bad for us?" I never thought I'd be saying the same thing about vegetables and whole grain products and low-fat dairy!! I have come to the conclusion that if I combine all the info from the various "experts" I'm going to have to learn to survive on dirt, rocks, and a vitamin supplement. emoticon

this page lets you do everything except update your current weight. It makes no sense. I can never remember how to do it.

I'm with both of you, for all the "healthy" reasons I know I "should" be eating whole grains, multi grains etc, and I really prefer whole grains. But....one or two days of salad and whole grains, and I'm chained to the great white fixture in the bathroom. If things turn around and I go into c mode, then I will try some of the whole grains (never the fibrous veggies because I'll be guaranteed an attack, to get things going. All else fails I go to my trusty friend Restorolax, or Restolax, whatever your favourite ammunition might be. One thing I do know is any softener with psyllium is not good as it pulls moisture from the bowel, causing bloating, gas, severe cramps etc. I've heard this on this board and have read it on other medical sites. Also any softener with inulin or chickory root can be very uncomfortable as well, just not as drastic as psyllium.

Always a difficult balancing act. I had my gall bladder removed and that is part of the reason for the fibrous veggies and digestion, as I don't have that extra store of bile to help break down the waxy stuff.

Hope everyone is doing well. Myself I'm home with a terrible head and chest cold with body aches, yuck. It's beautiful and sunny and I just wanna go out and play :(

I'm sure things will clear up soon, not like me to have a cold but a friend who still had the fever/cold kissed me and hugged me at the marathon on Saturday....and here I am, busted!

This is a good forum, hope we can keep it rockin.

I've got the same questions. I can eat the white bread with the IBS and it helps my gut. But with diabetes I'm not supposed to eat it, I'm supposed to eat whole grains, which make me sick. Same with fibrous vegetables. Then, too, I had cancer and would like to eat the best things to help prevent it from coming back, but those are the ones that give me more problems with the IBS. What a nightmare.

As a diabetic, experts recommend plenty of whole grains, fibrous raw veggies, legumes, so forth and so on. As an IBS sufferer, experts recommend staying away from the very foods the OTHER experts said to eat. What's a fella to do?
