That is similar to what happened to me on Sunday except I was going to and at a dog show. I ate a sandwich on the way and later one for lunch. Both times I ended up running for the restroom. Fortunately, it didn't start on me until I had already gotten to the show and into the building I was headed for.

I've had a big problem when my friend and I go to the Chinese place. I don't eat too fast, but seem to eat too much. And Wednesday I apparently did the same thing, even though most of my salad is in my refrigerator. I keep visiting the local police when we are on the way home from those places.

Thanks for the advice. I first notice today that waiting too long and eating to fast could be an issue. I was worried I would be late for an important meeting so I quickly ate a sandwich in the car on the way to the meeting. Needless to say as soon as I got to the meeting I had to head to the bathroom! Tomorrow I plan to start trying the smaller more frequent meals

Hi Melodee and welcome. I can comment a little on how to eat, though I have a lot of problems finding what triggers my IBS. You said something about wondering if more frequent, smaller meals would help. Yes, that can help. I have found that if I eat too much, even not realizing it at the time I'm eating, my IBS will hit hard and fast.

I have been very similar in not being able to eat certain things. I can manage the berries and SOME melon, though not a lot. There are very few raw vegetables I can manage and even have problems with fresh. I have been able to eat the white, starchy, but that is becoming a problem, too. My problem with that is I also have diabetes, so they are bad for it. The other day I ate baby carrots with dip and about killed myself.

I hope that people here can give you ideas that will help. Trying the smaller meals would probably be an idea that might help.

Darlene

I have had IBS most of my life. My mother had it and I think I probably even had some symptoms as a child. Stress plays a big role in my IBS and I am learning how to manage it more effectively. I also have a very strong family history of heart disease. Every member of my family--mother, father, younger brother, younger sister--have died from a heart attack or a blood clot. I am the only member left of my immediate family. I have two beautiful grandchildren and want to be around for them so I have to get myself healthy including eating more healthfully. My problem is I cannot seem to tolerate fresh fruits or vegetables so salads and fresh fruits are just not possible for me. I can tolerate anything cooked. I can eat apples and bananas but no berries and limited amounts of melons. Fresh, raw, uncooked veggies are a big no no for me. When I am really struggling with my IBS about the only things I can eat are white carbs--potatoes, toast, applesauce, etc. I do take a probiotic every day and that seems to help and I eat yogurt everyday (no artificial sweeteners) and that also helps.

I found it interesting in some of the articles I read on Spark People that waiting too long between meals and eating too fast can contribute to IBS issues. I think that is probably true for me also. I tend to eat much too fast, don't chew my food up well, and sometimes wait until I am too hungry to eat. I am wondering if I should try smaller more frequent meals?

I am glad to find the support this group can offer! IBS can be embarrassing and hard for others to understand. Thank goodness for this group!
