Once the Caltrate kicks in, can you eat a little bit more freely than before, or do you have to be real strict about diet? I'm still not sure if I have any triggers. I never run straight from a meal into the bathroom except when I try to eat out and I am nervous about having a problem. In that situation, I usually end up in the bathroom even before ordering any food. I haven't eaten out since July! I do know that I can't drink any coffee at all. That sends me every time. I read in the IFFGD newsletter that yogurt, peanut butter, pasta, rice, bananas and applesauce are helpful foods for IBS-D. Any opinions? I'd appreciate it greatly because I don't want to lose weight and I'm not sure how I should be eating. Thanks!
