A post yesterday 'To eat?', had the following helpful advice from Greygoose:
You need a clean, balanced diet. Plenty of protein and good fat, fresh fruit and veg, some carbs, not too much fibre, and don't skimp on the salt - sea salt of pink Himalayan. Best to cook everything from scratch because processed food tends to contain unfermented soy, and other nasties.
I'd be interested in the reason for the advice about not too much fibre.
Prior to my Hashis diagnosis, I suffered IBS for decades. Finally, after investigations, GPs, consultants, I realised that too high fibre was the problem. Indeed, not chewing thoroughly gives me dreadful bloat and pain, even now. I find well cooked food suits me much better than raw. Smoothies can cause dreadful bloating. Meat is hard to digest, etc etc.
We are advised that low fibre is not great for gut health.
I'd appreciate some advice from fellow hypo sufferers on this topic
