A healthful diet means eating a wide variety of nutritious foods. However, people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) may notice that certain foods trigger uncomfortable digestive symptoms.
The specific foods that trigger IBS are different for different people, so it’s not possible to draw up a single list of foods to avoid.
That said, many people will notice that avoiding some of the most common triggers — including dairy, alcohol, and fried foods — results in:
· more regular bowel movements
· fewer cramps
· less bloating
