  • Fruit and IBS issues

    So I know that fruit should be limited for fat loss but still should be eaten. My issue though is that I have IBS and any and all fruit causes extreme gastrointestinal issues. Is there some other source that could replace fruit??

    Source of what? You can get all the nutrients you need from veggies, meat, eggs, some nuts and seeds. Just try no fruits for a while and see how you feel, if you're trying to get more of a particular nutrient tell us what you need and we'll find non fruit ways to get it

      I don't think you need it at all. Just don't replace it!

      A good diet for IBS is Primal without fruit and dairy. Obviously you want to avoid grains, do some vitamin D and a strong B complex.

        +1 As someone who's 'in recovery' from IBS, I say stay away from the stuff until you feel better, then if you really want some start with low fructose berries and see if they're tolerable. If not, then don't eat fruit any more. Check out the threads on FODMAPS for more info.

            I second that! I've had it since 2006, and I finally think I'm about to figure it out after having tried so many diets and supplements.
            Primal has helped a lot, but it wasn't until I started my new experiment last Sunday things really improved. I've decided to give up on all the foods that are know to cause problems for at least a week or until I feel better, and then I'll introduce one food type a day and see if I get any symptoms. My hope is that I'll be able to figure out exactly what I'm intolerant to.

            I've given up
            lectins
            FODMAP's
            starch

            That includes amongst other things:
            Deadly nightshades including tomato, potato and eggplant.
            Glutens found in wheat, rye, barley, malt, and oats.
            Legumes, all beans including soy and peanut.
            Dairy including all milk products, milk, cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, kefir.
            Eggs
            Nuts
            Sweet potato
            Rice
            Onion
            Broccoli
            Cauliflower
            Coconut
            Many fruits

            It might seem like a lot, but there is still a lot left to eat. I eat all sorts of meat, seafood, mushrooms, carrots, spinach, lettuce, greens, grapefruit, beetroot, radishes, coconut oil, olive oil, dark chocolate(85%), leek, sauerkraut and probably other things too.

            Like I said, I started this experiment on Sunday, and the last few days I've felt fine. I've had no bloating or other issues at all!
