I was eating red meat and since I'm going through this spell it seams like red meat bothers me.Does anyone else have this problemor am I just imagining it?I had this theory once before but then it seemed to quit for a while.

Yes, red meat bothers me a lot. The GI Dr. told me to stay away from it because the colon contracts harder to digest it. I suffer from spasms anyway but when I eat red meat, the spasms are double worse for days.

Red meat also bothers me. I try to avoid it most of the time or only eat a little bit. I used to have my worst attacks after eating red meat. Now with the caltrate, I have better luck eating it, but it still scares me to eat too much of it.Ann

The colon (or any other part of the instestine) doesn�t contract harder due to red meat per se. However, the fat content may govern how "hard" it contracts, so the more fat a food contains, the harder it contracts (at least for a short time after eating). Still, I don�t think anybody has really studied this.

I don't need any studies to know that red meat kills my insides, no matter what size, shape, cut, fat content, or doneness....but as we all know, triggers are different for different people.

Red meat in any form really bothers me--causes me lots of pain. I can eat high fat food without trouble,but not red meat. Pork doesn't seem to cause as much trouble, but I usually stick with fish and chicken. Interestingly, bread is a big no-no, but pasta seems to be okay--go figure?South

If I had a problem with red meat you might as well just go ahead and croak me. I love red meat and it makes me feel great. This message is not endorsed by the beef industry!

allinknots: Red meat is a problem for a lot of people- even some of my non-IBS friends. I can eat moderate amounts of red meat that I fix at home. I have found that when I eat out, a lot of time, it's not the meat per se, but the fact that it's been marinated that is the problem. I eat tons of chicken, but occasionally if I eat it out, I'll have a problem, again because it's sometimes marinated or prepared in some way I don't tolerate well.BAMASOUTH: Related to this, I also have a problem with many breads, especially the great homemade ones. We've pinpointed my problem to the yeasts in the bread. Some breads I can get away with, and I take my own bread with me when I travel- also can get away with biscuits,(not sourdough), most muffins, etc.Trial and error, my friends!kate

Hi Allin; It dosen't make any differance,fish,pork,redmeat,water,anything can start a flare up for me.When you have red meat,is it BBQ'd,sometimes the stuff in BBQ sauce gives me problems. I do believe FRIED foods can cause me lots of discomforts,if you think redmeats can bring on ibs,just avoid it for about a month. Good Luck:jonna
