Hi...thought I would add this since I haven't had any replies... I sure would appreciate it if you have any good luck with what you eat during the day (or days) you are having a flare up. Thanks!
I am wondering if anyone could tell me what 'works best' for you when it comes to eating during a flare up? I am realizing the importance of keeping written track of what I eat. Although there are times certain foods do not make any difference...and its hard to tell WHAT is triggering it. Thanks for sharing with me.

Thank you, Peaches, for your comments. I really think you really zoomed in on the truth of the matter. I know that my 'state of mind' has MUCH more to do with how long the flare up lasts (not saying its real easy to keep turning in the right direction! )...but I agree with you that simply avoiding the usual 'problem foods' at ALL times is always helpful. I do continue to take Yerba Prima's psyllium husks before bedtime does help, at all times... even though some people think you can become too dependant upon it. I don't find that to be so....anyway, thanks again!
I have found that food has little effect on my ibs, except foods that I found hard to digest when I didn't have it. I mean things like the usual gassy culprits, cauli, cabbage, sprouts, beans, etc. Apart from those, I don't take any particular precautions during a flare up, just try to keep calm and take Immodium and extra calcium. In fact, I find if I eat more bulky foods, like All-Bran, wholemeal bread, rice etc. the better.Hope your flare goes soon
