The first thing to understand is that there are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber dissolves in water and can help to bulk up stool, while insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and helps to keep things moving through the digestive system. Both are important for IBS sufferers.
Some good sources of soluble fiber include oats, barley, flaxseeds, and fruits like apples and bananas. Insoluble fiber is found in foods like wheat bran, whole grains, nuts, and seeds.
When you are suffering from IBS symptoms, it is important to eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly. This gives your body time to adjust to the new food and also breaks down the food so that it is easier to digest. Eating smaller meals more often throughout the day can also be helpful.
There are some specific foods that are known to trigger IBS symptoms in some people. These include dairy products, fatty foods, spicy foods, caffeine, and alcohol. Keeping a food diary can help you to identify which of these foods trigger your symptoms so that you can avoid them.
There are also some general dietary guidelines that can help to relieve IBS symptoms. These include avoiding processed foods, eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, choosing lean protein sources, and staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
