Hey guys,Thanks so much for your replies. It's extremely nice to know there's a place to go if you need advice on something and people will go to the trouble of giving you some feedback.I saw somewhere some people complain about the taste so it's good to hear Annie that you enjoy taking it, it mightn't be so bad then as I thought it could be. Actually I'm a pretty lazy kind of guy so the calories factor won't be an issue for me. I'm glad too that yourself and Mike feel that it will put on weight as I'm pretty underwight myself so it would be useful to put on a few pounds. well done Mike on overcoming your constipation problems and thanks for your kind offer but to be honest constipation and diarrhea aren't really issues for me. My only ibs symptoms really are a constant crampy kind of feeling in my stomach but worst of all is the lg and fbo that I am suffering from for so long. It's nice to know though that the ensure doesn't trigger ibs in you, hopefully it will be the same with me.My heart sank a bit though when I saw some of the ingredients in Ensure so the points you make are extremely valid Anmegrl. It's a long way from the elemental diet I was hoping for, also I'm pretty sure I'm lactose intolerant like yourself. That's a very good idea of yours about going onto the sibo forum.Something like vivonex plus would probably be a lot better so thanks for the suggestion Ironlionzion, it's a pity your symptoms haven't improved but I did read some expert saying often it takes anything from 3 minths to a year for a change in diet to start to work.I'll probably try it for a few weeks alright after Easter not in great expectation though of it stopping my lg and fbo. Genuinely thanks again for your input everyone, it's really apprecaited.
