Trigger Foods

by Anonymous

I think mainly avoiding trigger foods and overeating are the best way to avoid constipation. If I dont eat right I always get constipated.

Too little water
Little to no excersize
Weight gain
Chips, Pizza, Too much carbs
Too much red meat
Sometimes eating too little or not frequently enough
also causes constipation.

How I know Im constipated:
For many years I didnt even know the signs.
Flatulence but no stool
Stomache ache
sensitive stomache

If we all knew how important it was to go number 2 we'd seriously be like the old people taking are fiber. People can die from constipation. You can get poo build up. Its not good. Its called a fecal impaction it is very painful. 4 years and under also have trouble with constipation. It could be the reason for thier latest temper tantrum. So fiber, fiber, fiber.

Selium husk is found in many of those fiber mixes. Some people take them every day to help things along.

When your really struggling milk of magnesia is good but not often. You should have a bowel movement at least every two days. If you havent had one in at least two-three days Id take something. If your prone to constipation nothing to be embarassed about PLEASE talk to your doctor. Or, at the very least take fiber every day.

Coffee And IBS
by: Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,I don't know if you drink coffee, but its one of the triggers for IBS.In my case, I could drink one to 2 cups of coffee a day and never have any problems,and then all of a sudden it caused a flare up.I would stay off coffee for two weeks and then I could drink it for about a year with no problems.Go to There is a lot of information on IBS and IBS diets.I ran across this site when I was surfing the web for IBS.

I had surgery last Oct., almost 1 yr. Since then I have been researching, including your site which is great! but have not been able to find 1 good diet for IBS alternating between constipation & very soft almost diarrhea. I usually get this 3x/year but this has been consistent, going on 1 yr in Oct.
I must become regular & am sure that this goes for a lot of people. I am begging you, please you printed trigger etc. I do bran buds, drink plenty of water (60 oz. give or take) eat salads, yogurt & veggies. Very very little meat and if so, clean pork (white meat & white meat chicken (not fried).
Can you actually print a diet for IBS to follow like Breakfast, lunch & dinner w/snacks, and approximately times like if to take Mililax how long it will take to go. etc et.
much takes. Renee Tina
