I was officially diagnosed with IBS-D a few weeks ago and have since been trying an exclusion diet, knocking out milk products (bummer cause I LOVE milk and have always had acidolpholus) and tomato products (double bummer cause I eat a lot of pasta with red sauce) and have been trying to find things to eat OTHER than carbs (white bread, white crackers with peanut butter, rice cakes with peanut butter, sourdough toast, plain bagels, etc). So I've been doing a lot of research on which fruits and veggies I should and shouldn't eat and am feeling kind of overwhelmed by the information out there. I want to be able to eat healthy, eating enough fruits and veggies, without having to worry about running to the bathroom 5 minutes after eating them (I know you know what I mean). Maybe someone can help sort me out from your own personal experience? :-/As someone who suffers strictly from IBS-D:• I read that berries are good to eat, but on another site read that berries are high in insoluble fiber and should therefore be avoided. Soooo to eat berries or not?• Apple sauce is good but eating an apple raw is not . . . true, not true? (And why?????) Can I drink apple juice?• I was so excited to find the Mott's Medley's drinks that include a veggie serving (cause I'm not a big veggie eater) but then read somewhere that most fruit juices are bad for people with IBS-D..... any personal experience with the Mott's Medleys or fruit juices? (I'm also asking because the one I really like has carrot juice in it and I read carrots are good for IBS but I hate eating carrots so I thought if I could get the carrots in a fruit juice then it would be tolerable . . . . )• Grapes are supposedly bad to eat in their raw form yet I have no problem drinking red wine? Why would this be?• What about nuts? One site I read said they were a good source of SOLUBLE fiber and another site said they were too hard to process in their raw form. I eat a LOT of peanut butter for the protein and because I feel like it's kind of "binding" so it helps me out but I read that super fatty things should be avoided . . . so why does PB not give me any problem? What about almond butter? Do you think that would be okay to try? • I read I should eat a banana a day, that they are also "binding", but then I read somewhere else that the opposite was true. So should I eat a banana a day? (Anyone who does this who finds that it actually helps?)• I am not a HUGE veggie lover but I really do love green beans, which is good because I read that they are good for IBS. I keep finding lists of veggies to avoid so which ones should I eat?? • I read I should avoid gas causing veggies and Potatoes were listed but I thought potatoes were one of the ones we should eat?! • Has anyone tried Aloe Vera juice? Is it gross? Do you think it helps?I'm sorry for the length. It's been frustrating because before this, I was already a picky eater and dating a pickier eater, so NOW as I'm trying to sort out what I can and can not eat and ways of getting healthier, it just seems like it's all very contradictory information. I just spent a week with my BFF who has gone all organic and vegetarian and I can hardly eat ANY of what she eats so we had to make separate meals all the time and she didn't understand how things that were good for you, in general, could be so mean to my body (to put it delicately lol). She seemed to get frustrated by how little I could eat which only makes MY frustration worse because, as I'm sure you ALL know, it's incredibly frustrating to figure this out! I just wanna scream!Thank you for listening! I look forward to any suggestions and advice you have!!
