I used to love fresh broccoli, but now it causes me great discomfort!

I had a sudden attack this evening after eating lettuce. It can be a trigger food for me but not on every occasion. I may have a problem with it today and not have a problem with it tomorrow.

I agree that cottage cheese would probably be a better choice.

I can be empathetic with you! In my case, I apparently have lost part of my sense of feeling or touch. I can be messed up, and I do not know it....... That is a "sudden attack" too, because it prompts the same feeling you get when IBS suddenly happens.It is absolutely no fun being incontinent. I am an older Spark friend.
I have not yet determined my trigger foods, but I will say that in your case, cheese certainly seems to clearly be a trigger food. Books I have skimmed through say that cottage cheese may be much nicer to your body. In other words, instead of eating yellow cheese, why don't you experiment with cottage cheese? Cottage cheese may be much more gentle!

I've had D based IBS since I was 10....with a sensitivity to dairy and wheat that led to me cutting it out of my diet for 5 yrs when I was a teen...then slowly adding a bit in over the years.

Until I changed my diet 8 weeks ago my IBS was more or less stable. With the addition of veg and fruit in my diet I got a bit bloated and gasy but again it settled down after a couple of weeks.

However, tonight I'm in the grip of the worst attack I've had in years. Treated myself to some cauliflower cheese with a little melted low fat cheese on top...and within an hour I was rushing to the bathroom. Urggghhh....feel icky...and its certainly confirmed that I won't be eating cheese again.

This was the first time I've had cheese for 8 weeks...have others experienced this kind of thing after not eating something they're sensitive to for a while? I also wondered if there might be something in the low fat cheese that could be a trigger?
