Great article! Learned quite a bit about IBS. I've had it for 3 years and have controlled with diet and exercise, but certain foods I didn't know about. Report
There is an excellent diet plan for IBS and other conditions at the following website:

I wish they would have the FODMAPS foods listed in the article. The foods listed that are high in fiber tend to make IBS symptoms flare up. Wheat, barley, rye, some oats, spelt, etc, all flare IBS symptoms. Report
Wow. So I'm now gonna have to revamp what I eat again. Thanks for info. Report
I too have IBS, I have primarily been using fitness, diet, and nutrition to help reduce/eliminate symptoms for almost eight years. Tracking foods has helped immensely in understanding triggers, and working with a dietician has been a pivotal piece in bringing relief. My doctor has me taking gasX on days when I am really uncomfortable, and I too have found that sugar alcohols and artificial sweeteners are huge culprits. Best of luck to all who suffer from IBS, may you find what brings relief and works for you. Report
Most of the time IBS is related to "bad" bacteria in the gut, leading to SIBO, Candida, or both. Those can lead to Leaky Gut. So recommending refined starches (such as pasta and bread) is not a good thing, as it feeds the bacteria. As some mentioned, Paleo or Autoimmune Paleo options, as well as other FODMAPS or SCD type diet changes helps immensely! Report
I've been dealing with IBS-D for about 6 years now. Went to every possible doctor, tried elimination diets (FODMAP elimination kind of helped, but not enough improvement given how impossible it is to follow that regiment), and nothing was working. Then I started eating a paleo diet, getting more exercise, and limiting my meal portions (and snaking a bit throughout the day). I would say my symptoms are 95% gone and results were more or less immediate. It might be a fad, but the paleo lifestyle is working for me! Report
