As crazy as it sounds but Porridge or (Is it Oatmeal in US/Canada?) is very good in moderation in the morning.It's a soluble fibre so travels through the body slowly while releasing energy for hours and allows you to go for a while without eating again.It may take a few days to get used to it but it can be helpful in small portions.I found Imodium before meals was useless for me and a waste of medication because it was after meals that things got worse.Don't be afraid of taking a couple of Imodium as they aren't harmful as I've been taking them for a couple of years on a daily basis and more tablets than normal people do.
Diagnosed originally with microscopic colitis in 1992 but no inflammation detected on subsequent colonoscopies,so IBS diagnosed. Hoping to share my personal opinions and experiences to help others and become more aware myself. No medical training at all.
