well.. i dont restrict my diet very much.. my main concerns are dairy and fat. so i dont have any milk, cheese is ok..and i have to limit my fat intake.. if i can eat an egg everyday that helps 'fix' me.. i think it's a protein thing with me sometimes.. i've always been a picky eater anyways, so i cant cut much out of my diet that i actually eat, or there's not much left

I can eat almost everything...except Apple, Coconut, Mustard, Cottage Cheese, and a few others but the hardest one for me to stay away from is Sodium Banzonate...but I have been adding it back in my diet slowly without any problems...Usually for breakfast it is always something sweet

I eat: egg whites, rice cereal, tiny bit of apricot-only-fruit jelly on soda crackers, 2oz servings of turkey, chicken, and fish, canned vegetables (no sweet peas or tomato products), 1/3 cup white rice, canned lite peaches, herbal tea, water, 1 oz turkey bacon, 1 slice home-made white bread every few days, 1/2 sweet potato (cannot tolerate any type of white potatoes), 1TB very finely chopped celery in chicken or tuna salad. That's it. I have just about eliminated fat from my diet. I have recently gone back to a multivitamin and it has not bothered me yet. I take fiber with fructan in it - have not been able to tolerate psyllium or oatmeal.

Chrstiana,Unfortunately every person has a different profile of foods or additives which actually provoke the underlying reactions which produce symptoms. It is very patient specific, diffoult to assess with a high degree of reliability, and often people are taught inadequate methods so their success is limited or they end up eating an uneccessariky restrictive and unhealthy diet.The first step, though, is to learn a bit about the subject to see that this is all true, and then you can evluate the alternative methods available for getting this aspect of your symptom managment under control.I recommend these two not-expensive books as a source of better understanding of this aspect of the condition:IBS: A DOCTORS PLAN FOR CHRONIC DIGESTIVE TROUBLESBy Gerard Guillory, M.D.; Vanessa Ameen, M.D.; Paul Donovan, M.D.; Jack Martin, Ph.D. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/search-h...9085785-1742301 "FOOD ALLERGIES AND FOOD INTOLERANCE: THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO THEIR IDENTIFICTION AND TREATMENT", Professor Jonathan Brostoff , M.D.. Allergy, Immunology and Environmental Medicine, Kings' College, London http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/089...6487508-3420903 You may also want to read some of the self-reported cases here of how people got their symptoms under controlby developing a plan specific to their personal needs: http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...=4;t=000286;p=4 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...0286;p=3#000106 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000364 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...=4&DaysPrune=30 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000286 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000285 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000331#000001 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000302 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000287 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000364 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...f=5&t=000313&p= http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...0293;p=2#000069 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000276 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=5;t=000073 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...f=5&t=000356&p= http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000320#000016 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000383#000010 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...f=5&t=000126&p= http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...c;f=17;t=000033 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000363#000002 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=028290#000001 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000335#000009 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...f=1&t=028290&p= http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000353 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000389 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000427#000006 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000421 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000427#000015 MNL

I can't have dairy or soy and fruits with a tough peel have to be peeled first.Breakfast: Nothing or oat bran with rice milklunch: pretzels or a grilled chicken salad, no croutons or dressing.Swedish fish (The candy) if I lack will power that day
Dinner: usually nothingHealthy isn't it? I am working on it. There are other things I can eat I am sure like veggies and such. I just don't have time to cook all the time and all processed foods down to canned soup have some sort of soy or dairy ingredient. I'd rather starve to death than feel the way I was feeling before.

When I'm not feeling well like now this is my crummy diet and now I'm to the point where I pretty much stick to this diet and only eat this until I tired of it, then I find something else that doesn't bother me:Breakfast- Usually nothing because I work a night shift and all I want to do in the morning is sleep. If I do eat breakfast, it's wheat bread toasted with apple jelly.Snack- One medium sized bananaLunch- Ramen noodles in cup. Only chicken or beef flavor though. With Ritz crackers. Or if I get tired of that, I eat Campbell's Soup at Hand, Cream of Chicken soup.Supper- Grilled chicken breast or ribeye steak, cream potatoes or mac-in-cheese. NO vegetables.Snack- Vanilla pudding or strawberry jelloBrandi
