Track food (and reactions)
Drink plenty of water
Exercise (even when you don't feel well)
Get plenty of sleep

I find that when I lose even 5 pounds, while exercising EVERY day, that my IBS significantly improves. And every time my weight goes up 5 pounds I have a significant increase in digestive problems.
I can't help thinking that IBS is kind-of, sort-of the fat metabolism equivalent of Diabetes 2. If we could get our bodies down to a fit and healthy BMI of 23 maybe we'd hardly be bothered by it.

I agree that trigger foods vary from person to person. I would suggest staying away from spicy foods and sweets. They play havoc with my bowel.
Keep a diary of what you eat daily. Find out what hurts your system.

http://www.helpforibs.com/ has a lot of great info on what to eat, what to avoid and some recipes. It's hard for me to give any suggestions as it seems like eveyones IBS is different. What are the foods that bother you?
I was diagnosed with IBS back in January and have been struggling as to what I can eat that is healthy and will not hurt my stomach. I have IBS due to food intolerances according to my doc. Which is weird because it just starting happening in last 4 months. Foods I have eaten my whole life I now can not eat, because it makes me hurt. I am struggling in finding foods that I can eat with my family as well. I have a family of 5 and everyone likes different things, but I can't eat most of what they can. Any one have suggestions of sites I can visit that might help give me food ideas and the nutrients they give.
