hey huys, went to the dietician this week and she was really helpful!apparently im not getting enough calcium (as i dont have dairy) and so ive been put on supplements for that. also she gave me a leaflet that outlined what not to have in the way of food and drink, so i am now on a low fibre diet. this sucks cuz i adore my wholemeal bread and my jacket potato skins!anyhoos ive put so much #### into me this week (period!) and so i spect ive put on 20lbs or something!if any of u get sugar cravings, how do udeal with them?Sarah

HiI wento the dietician last week too and she has put me on a low fibre diet too!!how do you find its working? it feels so much safer eating now i have a list. although low fat rich tea biscuits are a no no!! it does seem to make sense how the diet rests your bowel and can help stop abdominal pain which i get constantly. my diet was ALL fibre before i went to the deitician and things werent getting any better.im going back to see her in 2 weeks time to see how im getting on.

HiI'm going to stop it. I have had diahoea and painful diahoea at that every other day for the past week and a half. I have to take lopermide every time because it won't stop and is so horrible.I'm going back to see her in 2 weeks time and am not pleased at all! I found it easy to follow - white bread sandwiches etc.

yeh Ive sort of given up on it too- its given me a terrible break out of spots and im feeling grotty so im back on the wholemeal bread i think! the thing is i thought it was essential to have fibre, even if you have ibs-d so that might explain why it didnt work for u, im sorry to hear ur suffering from diarrohea it sucks having ibs. i did find one of my close friends has it the other day which was a big relief and i have someone else i can moan to about pains and stuff!feel free to chat to me anytime

Hi Sarah
I too thought fibre was vital for people with diahoea. I think the whole point of no fibre is to give the bowel a rest.I've had a few things with fibre in lately but am still having white bread, rice krispies etc. I'm writing down every time I have a loose bowel movement and the day. It's become far too regular!when are you due to go back to the dietician?

ha ha no i live down south!i dont have dairy anymore and although i think it has made me sleepy, its eased the pain. sometimes i hav a bowl of cereal with a little milk now and then and that doesnt seem to aggrevate me, but the thought of cheese makes me feel sick. i have Pure soya spread too instead of butter.weird how we have the appt. on the same day!!

I have my first appointment with a dietician soon -- mine's march 31st... I wonder if I'm going to be put on the same kind of diet - ?as for the sugar cravings question -- how about fruit? grapes are really sweet and certain types of apples... or mangoes... watermelon... can you eat fruit? mmm, naming all those fruits has made me hungry
I'll let y'all know what my dietician has to say!~Thanks for sharing

hi everyone,sarah - lets see what our dieticians say on tuesday! im going to mention the whole thing about the milk. im ok with chocolate in small amounts. i have been eating a LOT of rich tea bisuits lately and have been ok with chocolate type yoghurts like the rolo yoghurts too. altho egg has been making me pass wind!my period is due any minute so i know i'll be ill in the next few days. mite mention that to the dietician and see if theres anything i should change around that time. although this is the first peirod i'll have on the diet so maybe the pain and D during that time wont be as bad.

hey vicky how'd it go with ur dieticican? mine was pretty unhelpful. i said i havnt really noticed ANY benefits from the low fibre diet so im not really following that so much anymore. i do have to go and have a celiac disease test tomorrow as my symptoms are very much like that of the disease.i started my period this morning and so im feeling pretty rough- the pain and the D have already started....its guna be a long week i think! did u ask ur dietician about pre-period times? i forgot to ask mine and was wondering what yours said, if anything.Hugs, Sarah
