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.
