In Nov., I was so miserable I started researching IBS-C on the net and got a book that turned out to be mainly for IBS-D sufferers but one thing it did for me was get me off all the constipating fiber I was taking. For lots of C folks, fiber seems to be just a brick in the gut that won't move. I now have great luck with the following: "Soft" fibers like white & sweet potatoes, beets, cooked greens with olive oil, squash, quick or instant oatmeal, soft fruit without the peel, pineapple in any form with unfiltered raw honey on it, licorice tea, digest-tea, small amount of magnesium with each meal, flax oil gelules.Keep a food journal. Write down what you eat each day and what results you have the next day. Then start lists of what you are sure helps you, what you are sure is bad for you and a ï¿½not sureï¿½ list. You will gradually move things from the ï¿½not sureï¿½ list to one of the other lists. Eventually, youï¿½ll have a long list of things that you can eat and youï¿½ll know what messes you up.
