read this blog, fruit is the answer in a general sense. Whole fruits are very good for Glycemic load. Glycemic INDEX is useless; with the exception that you are on a mono diet. Ignore Glycemic index. http://oneradionetwo...od-sugar-a-lot/
FRUIT is also the cleanest burning food for humans, Most nut protein eaten with fruit is ideal as well because protein digests better with sugar. If You have allergies to nuts or other proteins, use high fructose fruit or honey eaten together. (Example: sun ripen tomatoes eaten with red meat.)
I will also share this tip I've learned through experience. Chew and liquefy your food more. Saliva is related to the pancreas and saliva performs useful digestion. This is all very basic and should have been learned in a high school health class.
A swami teacher has said: “Cellular nectar is transmuted from the enzymes in your mouth combined with food. Drink your solids, my son, chew your liquids, my son, and you will be like the Sun.”

another tip i learned recently if you have a SIBO issue. Eat raw carrots at 6:00 pm. In the mouth chew/digest raw carrots with some real salt (not table) and a teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar. Do that for three days as a remedy.

My doctor put me on the low-fodmap diet and I have great hopes for that. Will let you know how it goes. Research has shown that the low-fodmap diet controls IBS symptoms in 76% of patients that use it. I went on Weight Watchers and lost 30 lbs but my problems got worse. When I saw the list of foods to eliminate, it made perfect sense. I was eating 90% of the foods that aren't good for IBS. He is also testing me for Celiac Disease to see if gluten is a problem, too.

tummy rumbles, you absolutely do not need carbs. Nor do you need carbs to process protein. Thousands of people and whole cultures have lived on meat alone and thrived. "Zero carbs' people who believe in eating only animal products and drinking water have cured MANY diseases, and IBS is one of them.
The whole 'carbs and wheat are good, fats are bad'...has been completely debunked in recent years. MUCH research to prove it. The whole 'cholesterol is bad' theory; also debunked. In fact, the original study on cholesterol being bad, done by Ansel Keys (look it up) was intentionally flawed, because instead of including the results of all of the countries he studied, he 'cherry picked' specific countries only to skew the results the way he wanted. Cholesterol isn't bad. It's the size of the cholesterol particles that are key. Statins are horrible for women who haven't had a heart attack, and come with risk of terrible side effects. So much of what we were taught was wrong.
I personally am doing best on a beef, chicken, tiny amount of white rice, and ripe bananas only at the moment. (still early in my post infectious IBS.) If I step outside that boundary of food, BAM. It comes right back. Seeing a Functional Medicine MD tomorrow to get her opinion/help.
Each of us are different, and that certainly applies to IBS.

The answer is fat. Low carb, moderate protein and high fat should be helpful in getting enough calories. The perfect health diet has good macronutrient ratios if looking for an example. In general 200-600 grams of protein, 200-600 grams of carbs (With at least 600 grams protein + carbs) and the rest from fat. How much fat will depend on how well you tolerate it but supposedly you can build up to more gradually. I also seemed to feel worse when eating too much meat, likely because of the high amounts of protein. Cutting back on portions and adding additional fat to make up for calories have shown improvements. The healthiest fats seems to be Tallow, Lard, Duck Fat, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, Macadamia Oil, Coconut Oil, Red Palm Oil and Butter/Ghee if tolerated.
