I never had a problem with rice, oats, potatoes, most veggies, the full variety of soy products, and was able to substitute spelt for the more problematic wheat, and rice and corn pasta instead of the durham. Chicken and fish were good protein (and better for the heart). Fruit was okay as long as I limited tomatoes and citrics because of their acid content. Fortunately, lettuce also didn't particularly bother me, so salads were good. It was living without spices that was the greatest loss.Of course, this only lessened the problem until I finally found my treatment, it certainly didn't leave me without my daily disasters.Mark
I am doing the elimination diet from the IBS For Dummies book. It is very challenging!I am eating rice and plain rice cakes, that is not causing any problems. I found some rice crackers at the health food store and they taste fine.I also eat nuts and some nut butters, like almond butter. I am fortunate in that those do not create any problems for me either.I eat a lot of vegetables. I eat some raw vegetables but only a small amount at a time.I cannot tolerate soy. If you can, there's a lot of stuff made with soy now, like cheese, etc.Eliminating all these foods is very difficult! I wish I had better suggestions on what to eat.Stokes
