Same thing here Sue, I can eat something one day and not another day. I have found that with salads, and different kinds of foods. I have started taking fiber before meals, it seems to help with bloating and such. My main problem is in the morning or mid morning. Later in the day, seems I can eat anything and get away with it. Strange how the body works!
Happy New Year!

Welcome Sue! I have the same problem with veggies, etc. The problem I find is that I can eat a certain item one day with no problem. The next time I eat it I have terrible gas, bloating, etc. I know that you will find many members with similar problems.

Hi Everyone!

I signed up with SparkPeople a few days ago, and I'm finding it very helpful with trying to change my eating habits, and lifestyle. I'm 45 years old and have suffered from irritable bowl syndrome since 1993. I also have reflux, so it's kind of like a double edge sword.

When trying to lose weight, people just tell me "eat more fiber and grains". Well, it's easy for someone not dealing with IBS. I can't eat whole grains, wheat, or dairy. I love Greek yogurt, but can't eat it without having issues. Certain vegetables bother me and bloat me too (any raw vegetable except for mushrooms), cooked broccoli and cauliflower and I love cauliflower! It's very hard food shopping because I walked down the aisles each week wondering what I can eat without suffering. UGH

Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL Look forward to chatting with you!
