For people with digestive systems that work smoothly, foods are not feared and a person can feel free to eat almost anything they want. Individuals with Irritable Bowel Syndrome do not have that luxury. A sensitive GI tract requires that care be taken with the food that is to pass through. The simple act of eating can become quite a challenge.

Diet tends to be a confusing issue for IBS sufferers. Although there is no specific Irritable Bowel Syndrome diet recommended, there are some foods which may aggravate the symptoms. Generally though, it may be the act of eating in itself, due to normal or perhaps pronounced stimulation of the digestive system, that may cause the bowel to overreact to food. IBS suffers have been shown to have an enhanced response in the digestive system due to stimuli, referred to as hypervisceral sensitivity. Some suggest to eat smaller meals spread throughout the day rather than larger meals which tend to cause an enhanced gut response.
