So fat has always been my biggest trigger. I've never been able to survive a slice of pizza or an ice cream cone intact. But in the past few months my ibs-d has gone from annoying to completely debilitating and pretty dangerous (well, not the ibs itself, but the consequential weight loss), and so obviously my reaction to fat has gotten worse. Because of my weight issue, I force myself to have some fat, like some peanut butter or a little olive oil in my dinner, and even that small bit wipes me out. In my attempts to try everything, I have been trying the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, which doesn't allow any complex carbs, so it relies a lot on protein. So even though I haven't been having beef or any especially fatty meat, I've been having a lot more fat than usual. But I've actually lost significant weight these past few days because the diarrhea is so much worse.I haven't given up on this specific carb thing yet. But if this doesn't somehow make me tolerate fat well, I think I want to try almost completely eliminating fat from my diet - only eating the least fatty types of protein, not cooking anything with any oil or eating any foods cooked with butter, and only eating very low fat products. No carbs every set me off, though now everything can. My question is - can I possibly have a healthy diet with very low diet. Forget about balanced - can I possibly maintain weight and not screw myself up by eating mostly carbs and some very lean protein for at least a few months, until my ibs should settle down?
