Hello, I'm a newbie! This is my first year of college and I've dealt with IBS symptoms since I was twelve. I'm eighteen now and though I did miss a lot of days in high school, college is getting worse. I know I have to watch my diet but its really hard when all you have is a mini-refridge (that you have to share with another person) and a microwave. We've got the dining hall where they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner but most of the time the food makes me cringe just looking at it. I end up eating stuff I'll know I'll regret later but I don't know what to do. any suggestions on how to deal with this?Thanks

My suggestion? Use your precious amount of fridge space for good fruits and veggies and sandwich meats. Get all you can that doesn't have to be refridgerated. You could try finding a good health food store, because they have more nutritious and tasty versions of the (usually lame) foods that are easy to prepare in a microwave, like soups, and stuff you can make with hot water (tabouli, hummus). Get canned tuna, canned fruit (if you like it), and buy small cartons of milk and keep a large stock of cereal. I think you just have to do a bit more planning, and you'll be able to make more efficient use of what you've got!midge.

yeah work out your triggers and stock up safe foods! tuna, salmon, chicken and turkey are meats i store up... i cant do fruit or veg still but stock up on this u can eat, make your own food to take with you, try to avoid your triggers as eating them only irritates your intestines (she says a few hours after a trigger has been eaten)
