Elimination diet

Butter and IBS

Butter and IBS

I have to add butter, yogurt, milk and cheese all separately because some people can tolerate specific dairy products. It’s all to do with the processes and how much the milk is fermented. Some products won’t have as much lactose as others so if you have a problem with lactose you might find bio yogurt […]

Non organic chicken and IBS

Non organic chicken and IBS

It took 2 days to get rid of the symptoms from rye. I’ve decided to add non organic chicken today because if this is OK I can start adding other meats and organic is so expensive. Also I’ve never seen organic bacon – maybe is doesn’t exist? Day 1 I found the organic chicken was […]

Rye and IBS

Rye and IBS

Day 1 Had some rye crisp bread with honey on. I much prefer rice cakes. I shan’t be upset if rye is no good as it tastes awful. I’m sure there are people who actually like these things but not me! Day 2 Well yesterday evening I had a really bad IBS pain. Its the […]

Tea and IBS

Tea and IBS

Adding tea today. It is nice to have a cup of tea instead of just bottled water. Only had one cup on the first day as I didn’t want to overdo it. After 3 days of tea I still feel well so no problems at all. It feels a bit more normal being able to […]

Soya Milk and IBS

Soya Milk and IBS

Well it took a few days for my stomach to calm down. Decided I wouldn’t bore you with each days details! Organic chicken is so expensive I would really like to try adding non organic but it feels such a waste – its not as if I would be enjoying another food type! The next […]

Carrots and IBS

Carrots and IBS

So this is what happened when I added carrots. Day 1 I had a roast and made some gravy using yeast extract. A proper meal at last!! I really enjoyed it. I have had a bit of a stomach ache this evening – nothing bad so maybe its just one of those things. See what […]

Yeast and IBS

Yeast and IBS

I have been trying yeast. It’s a huge tablet that I have to take and is such a boring thing to be testing! Its not as if I get to eat a new type of food. Anyway I have not had any problems with it so yeast is OK. Hopefully wheat will be OK and […]

Tap Water and IBS

Tap Water and IBS

Well for almost 2 weeks I have been IBS free! The dietitian says I can start to add items in. I have to add certain ones in a specific order (there’s 26 items on the official list) and others I can add as and when I like. Because all my symptoms have gone while just […]

Peppers and IBS

Peppers and IBS

I tested yellow and red peppers a week ago. Don’t really like green peppers and they are stronger anyway. I found yellow and red peppers to be fine. By the way I ate them raw in salad rather than cooked so that should mean that cooked ones will be fine too. Last night I had […]

Garlic powder and IBS

Garlic powder and IBS

Onion powder was fine so today I am adding garlic powder. I’m not going to bother with adding actual garlic since it is so similar to onions and I’m no good with onions. I added some garlic powder to roast potatoes and they were very yummy! So far so good. After 3 days I am […]
