Healthy eating with IBS

Jasz | Jan 14, 2010 10:14 AM

I've been trying to eat healthier—cutting down on fats and sugar and cutting out all fast food for example—but due to my IBS I'm finding it really hard to follow the advice to eat "lots of fruits and vegetables." If I eat more that 1-2 servings per meal I often get an attack (I'll spare you all what that entails). I generally rely on pasta but have found my weight creeping up (and it took so long to lose in the first place!). I also can't do the "several small meals throughout the day" due to my schedule—I have a lunch break and that's pretty much the only time I can eat at work, hungry or not.

Anyone else in a similar boat and what do you do?
