Hi - I've suffered agonies with constipation type IBS (and diverticular disease) for years. I keep getting told to increase the fibre in my diet, but I know some fibres - I think the soluble type - also increase stomach gas, and i produce more than enough of that all by myself, thanks! I understand insoluble fibres produce less gas, but aid constipation - BUT I'm TOTALLY confused as to which foods contain which type of fibre, and which would be best to help the constipation without blowing my stomach up like a balloon and having me almost rolling around in agony!!!
Please, can anyone help?
