HI All. This may be good news - I hope it is
I have had IBSD for 6 years and its been daily hell as I am sure you all know. It got 80% better 6 months ago with the low FODMAP along with exercise, and a low fat and low caffeine diet. Oh, and peppermint tea. But I started noticing that certain foods seemed to improve the remaining symptoms. And, for me, the best thing to stop it is fresh red chilli. And possibly parsley. It is early days yet but in the past 2 weeks I have eaten chilli daily I have had many more IBS free days than I have had in the past 5 years - in fact 12 out of the last 14 days have been amazing!! It seems an overnight success.
So what do you think - is an IBS diet not just about excluding foods? Can it be about including certain foods too?
Any feedback or thoughts are very welcome. J
