I.B.S.

I.B.S. (I actually found a rap song about it)

Went to see a Gastrointestinal Doctor this morning.  And she confirmed that I have I.B.S.  So we are working on an action plan.  I will be going on an Elimination Diet and following a Low FODMAP diet plan.  FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligo-saccharides, Di-saccharides, Mono-saccharides And Polyols) are problematic for those with IBS.  My doctor recommended a Couple of Books, so I am going with the book listed on the following Webpage.  IBS Elimination Diet

I have already started eliminating processed foods and trying to cook most of my food at home.  Since June I have lost 18 pounds.  Hopefully I will find out what my trigger foods are and I won’t look like I swallowed a Basketball anymore.
