yes, that holds true for whole grains also. Especially whole wheat products. You can have rice cereal (hot or cold) Like rice chex or cream of rice cereal. I buy the Bob's red mill rice cereal. You can have yogurt but, if you eat too much of it you can have a problem. Some people can tolerate it better then others. There is a great web site for IBS. Its: IBS.com Iv'e found alot of help there and I have both her books and they are very good as is the site.

Have you kept a food diary to see what foods trigger your symptoms more (and less)? That might help give you some relief. The other thing I've heard about IBS is it is very much associated w/ stress, so maybe you could try some stress reducing things, like yoga, or meditation.

I've heard good things about yogurt, and I think certain veggies (like broccoli and cauliflower) are more gas producing than others. I wonder if that holds true for grains as well.

I have been checked, double checked and tripple checked by my gastro doctor and there is nothing they can do for IBS and there is no test for it either. You can have all the symptons and then some. All you can do is watch your trigger foods. I tried to eat clean (and I still do to a certain extent), I just am very careful of what I eat.

excessive gas, burping, the trots and costipation and a combination of both are all part of IBS.

Sounds like this could be more like a GI tract issue. Have you had a specialist check you out that deals with GI issues? If you have, maybe you should have a second opinion just to be sure.

Not being able to process is understandable..I thought IBS was mainly about the trots and inability to function with the bowels. I thought once it gets to inability to break down the nutrients, it's the GI system and thus needs totally different care.

I could be wrong as I'm not a dr. But it may also be worth checking into if you haven't already.

unfortunately I have tried all of thse mentioned here and none of them work. I have IBS (for many years). Flatulence is very painful and embarresing. It takes longer for fresh veggies and fruits and grains to digest and this causes gas to build-up. The only way I can eat these foods is if I cook them first and chew very well.

You can find Probiotic Quatro's (3 types of strains) or more at your local Health Food Store.

You could also have Yogurt and Kefir as well. That helps your intestinal track quite a bit.

I don't have this problem, but I have seen solutions posted before on this team. The one I remember is papaya... I think you can get it in a capsule. You might want to search the boards...

I don't have the problem with flatulence, but I do burb...A LOT! I have never had heart burn, but now that I eat mostly veggies, fruit, whole grains, and little to no processed foods, I seem to have to burp...for hours. Is this heartburn? I tried beano, but 1. it doesn't work for me, and 2. it isn't vegetarian, which I am (I took it before reading the label...Dumb). Anyone else have this problem or a solution?

I know I have seen other posts on here in the past with respect to the unfortunate side effects of eating clean ( namely flatulence). I have struggled with this since long before I was eating clean. I have always suffered from IBS. I had hoped that eating clean might improve things for me, but if anything the flatulence has become worse, and if I dare say more "aromatic"!!! I would like to try some sort of supplement to help control this, and I've seen information on probiotics as well as digestive enzymes, and I'm just not sure which route to go. Any suggestions?
