Hi All, I have been following a low fibre diet for nearly 7 days now and have to say that I have only taken 2 Buscupan tablets since I started - I was taking them every day, about 2 or 3 times a day before I started this diet. I love vegetables, nuts, fruit, beans, wholemeal etc but have eliminated all of those foods for a month.
A friend of mine followed a junk food diet (she didn't enjoy it as she, like me, enjoys decent food) for a month many years ago now and hasn't had any IBS symptoms since - she slowly went back to normal eating once the month was over.
So far so good and I will report on here how I am feeling after a month of following this diet.
If I start feeling bad once I have finished and started to introduce the fibre again I will start an elimination diet.
Best of luck to everyone else on here.
