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) doesnï¿½t 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 donï¿½t think anybody has really studied this.
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
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
