I have suffered from IBS for about 4 years now. The symptoms had gotten progressively worse over time before it was diagnosed and i began to make attempts to get it under some kind of control. I suffered severe bloating, , wind, gas, you name . I underwent a colonoscopy and all to no avail. Finally i realised what triggered my symptoms and what provided sustained relief . For me it has been to simply avoid over eating and when i do eat i eat only when i am actually hungry . If i am not hungry . IE no hunger pangs then i don't eat, I have found that since i adopted this practice literally all of IBS symptoms have disappeared as well as those few extra pounds that had creeped in which i had
difficulty shifting. It might not work for everyone but for me it has been a revolution in my quality of life with IBS Because i now eat only when i am hungry i can enjoy a good square meal any side of the day and plenty of fruits and veg spaced throughout the week. As soon as i over eat the effects are instantaneous so for me this practice of eating only when i am hungry and not over eating has now become a way of life.
