Hey, I feel your pain totally. I actually lost 50 pounds over two years a few years ago, eating mostly chicken and rice, and such. I quit all sodas (they upset me sometimes, and at other times, they don't) and of course, I worked out. Sadly, I started adding back in some items to my diet as i could tolerate them and I regained all the weight back. I also quit working out. So, here we go again. *sigh*.
But, I guess you didn't need to hear all that. Sorry.
A couple things I can eat safely, are white bread of course with a little bit of peanut butter, rice of course, pretzels are a good, safe snack usually, or cereal bars (not granola bars). i am lactose intolerant, and regular milk makes me sick, but oddly enough I can eat yogurt usually with not too much of a problem. But I switched to Lactaid milk and that did help with eating cold cereals or drinking milk. I know, it's so hard, to find things you can consistently eat without being upset by it. And the main things that the health experts recommend for weight loss, we can't eat. Oh well, I guess we learn to deal, right? I'm 43 and have had IBS for at least 20 years. My poor youngest daughter, who is almost 17, has it too.
Kind of funny but sad, too-we had pizza one night for a girl's night in (the guys were at a father-son campout) and when the pizza arrived, we both headed to the kitchen and she grabbed a box of Immodium and I grabbed another one. lol It was funny but sad at the same time.
God bless, Gwen (in Nebraska)
