Manage IBS with Diet

Manage IBS with Diet

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms can be triggered by the foods you eat and how much you eat. Since diet plays a role in both the development and the treatment of IBS, dietary changes can go a long way toward helping to keep symptoms in check.

The American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends the following guidelines for managing symptoms of IBS:
  • Eat lots of foods rich in fiber, such as whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Eat at consistent times each day to help regulate bowel function.
  • Avoid large, heavy meals. Instead opt for smaller portions of lighter foods.
  • Drink plenty of water and other fluids. Skip the alcohol, caffeine, and artificial sweeteners.
Keep a food diary to help identify problem foods and eating habits that may be aggravating symptoms.
