what is proper diet for irritable bowel syndrome?

Individualize diet: There is no specific exclusion diets for ibs, although many patients have difficulty tolerating water insoluble fibers, excessive dietary fats, fizzy drinks, & bowel stimulants (caffeine). If lactose, bean husk, sorbitol, &/or gluten intolerant it is best to avoid these foods or use appropriate enzyme supplements with them. Keep a food diary. Also, read "relief from ibs" by elaine shimberg.
