What you were eating for snacks may also play a role.Often snackfoods are either starchy or sweet and starches tend to increase gas production. I don't know if they would caue more problems (but they might) if you eat them alone vs as part of a meal. Sometimes some things are more bothersom when eaten by themselves. For starch foods that are "high glycemic index" foods (they promote a particular insulin reaction in the blood) they are tested when eaten by themselves, but when eaten as part of meal the changes in insulin are generally not as big.K.------------------I have no financial, academic, or any other stake in any commercial product mentioned by me.My story and what worked for me in greatly easing my IBS: http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/Forum17/HTML/000015.html
