I had my gallbladder removed in 2000 and was diagnosed with IBS last fall.
I eat an unprocessed protein low carbohydrate diet (with benefiber soluable fiber with each meal)and lc vegetables each day - cooked soft. I also eat only healthy fats/oil, no trans or hydrogenated. My triggers include: Processed food, milk/products, coffee, citric acid, pepper, caffeine, sugars, all starches, cocoa products, fatty red meats including bacon and uncooked egg yolk.
This week I goofed and ate lots of bacon and I got puritis ani extremely bad.
Could the sugar in the bacon or the nitrites be the cause of puritis ani?
Sometimes I eat a high fat/protein diet and I get diahrea, but this does not bother me if I don't have puritis ani with it. I also took lots of tylenol (is this an irritant for some people?)
LEAN beef does not seem to bother me...but regular beef does. ?? Should I cut out all red meat? LEAN porkloin (4g fat per serving) does not bother me, but a t-bone steak does! I think I can eat beef if lean...anything if lean yes?All added HEALTHY fats (olive oil, canola oil etc) do not bother me unless I really binge on them. Does all this make sense? Could all this be due to IBS or simply a missing gallbladder? Did having the gallbladder out cause IBS?What role does bile play in my situation???? Do you think I'm on the right track?
sorry so many questions/I'm new. I plan to get your book today.
