Having IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be a pain in the ass. People who are left to deal with this ass killer can be left with more broken dreams and wasted time than they have ever had in one whole year. IBS can really be a letdown for this people because they spend too much time looking for a cure to what they are feeling. It is a known fact that a lot of psychological turmoil can cause an involuntary shifting of the sands in our intestinal tract. Peristalsis, the movement that lets our food travel from the mouth to the anus, is a very complex motion that when disturbed it can cause tons of problem. LBM, Constipation and IBS are top three problems that can be experienced by a person with an un-coordinated tract movement. These problems can and are aggravated by chowing down the wrong kinds of food. And for IBS the list of trigger foods are as long as the great wall of China.
Here are just some of the foods to avoid when you are experiencing IBS. Take note that these are trigger foods. Foods that can cause a person to go to the throne once it gets into contact with the gastric juices in the stomach.
Alcohol: Though it would be a pain to see people having a toast with wines and spirits and your glass is filled with water, avoiding alcohol would be the good for you. There is a substance in alcohol that is a GI irritant which can trigger your IBS.
Coffee: Some people couldn’t live the day without having a sip of coffee but the bad news for IBS sufferers; coffee contains enzymes that can trigger you IBS. So better be a cold turkey than have you IBS come into full swing.
Artificial sweeteners and fat: For IBS sufferers these can cause a lot of pain. These two have Sorbitol (artificial sweetener) and Olestra (artificial fat) that can cause cramping, diarrhea and bloating.
Red meat and Dairy: There are some people that have their IBS triggered by red meat. Avoiding a thick steak can be hard but if it will do you IBS good then why not right? Diary products can also cause you IBS to come a full circle not just because of the lactose but because of the high fat content in it. Also whey and casein can form the equation needed to have you IBS turn ballistic.
