ts-11/insoluble-soluble-fiber . That link explains soluble and insoluble fiber. For my IBS-C, that just means that I eat soluble fiber before insoluble fiber and snack on soluble fiber things during the day as well as take a soluble fiber supplement. It's working so far!
When I have a bad bout of diarrhea I take calcium, it helps so much. But I can't take it every day it constipates. Oatmeal seems to be a trigger for me. What is soluble fiber?
A staple in my house for my IBS C is oatmeal, protein powder, flaxmeal, sugar free amond breeze, eggs ,fish oil., bannans ,apples. I also avoid dairy and most processed foods.

When I get into the habit of morning oatmeal, my D is more managable.

My favorite soluble fiber food is oatmeal. I eat it most mornings for breakfast. I eat bananas also practically every day. What is all this about eggs? Eggs are a valuable source of protein. I am sorry, but you NEED protein! IBS is unpredictable, so you have to be flexible and have a sense of humor. Have a good week! Love, Sugarcop
Mine is IBS-C so I try to have a lot of soluble fibers to snack on, i.e. bananas and I'm trying out homemade applesauce (without the evil sugar). I have to replace my bad habit snacks with soluble fiber ones so I won't crave the salt from the bad ones. Sometimes I forget that I have IBS and try to eat things like eggs! I've been taking Citrucel for the last two months, and it helps when I stick to my IBS diet. The problem is, I'm trying to gain muscle and have added a protein supplement to my diet, in addition to eating chicken 5 days a week. IBS-C hates protein! Hopefully the applesauce can help all this protein move along.
I have found taking a soluble fiber supplement before meals really helps me with my "D"
When I run into "C", I will drink alot of warm fluids, hot tea, coffee, fruits and veggies help too.
Mine is mostly "D" so I am learning more about soluble fibers.
What about you?
