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!

The only thing I avoid when I am out is the salads. I also limit the tomato sauce and onions on my food but I can have small amouts of them.Other than that I eat just about anything I want. I have been taking the Calcium since July 1998 but I did not have to wait long to be able to eat other foods I stayed away from.Linda

I have been on the caltrate since June 1999, but have found that I still can't eat my trigger foods. Darn. Everyone seems to be different as far as what they can do with the Caltrate though.Christine

I've been taking Caltrate for a couple months and I'm finding that I can eat more and more of the "bad foods," like ice-cream (with lactose pills) and tomato sauce. Soccer Mom, what is that newsletter you referenced? How can someone subscribe to it?
