So it seems like most of my gut problems would subside if I didn’t have to eat anything. Pretty much any food I put into my body gives me some sort of discomfort. Of course I want to make sure I get enough calories and nutrients, but does anyone know of ways to eat the littlest amount possible. I thought of meal replacement powders and somehow making them into bars or maybe shakes or something like that. Has anyone had to do something similar? Any ideas? Thank you!!

Yeah, that's how it works pretty much. You feel better when you don't, but the trick is: YOU HAVE TO EAT. I wouldn't focus on eating the littlest amount of food possible, but to eat enough to not starve your body and remain all the hormones levels intact, but yet improve your gut's functioning. Did you try any diets, like more proteins, but not dairy, unsaturated fats and some of the saturated coming from meat, eat easily absorbed carbohydrates etc? I'm sure you must have consulted with doctor, so there must be something that you feel better on. Avoiding food won't help, sorry.

Hey, thanks for replying. Yeah, it seems I've tried nearly every diet out there for IBS. I guess I meant something like a meal replacement powder, bar, or something like that.
