So - following the IBS guidelines and excercising you lost weight? I have about 25 more pounds to lose (I've lost 22 with Weight Watchers). I've been following the IBS plan and counting my points using IBS friendly foods. I've been the same weight for 3 weeks (no loss or gain) and it's frustrating. I've been following Heather's plan for about 4 weeks. Do you think weight loss could be an effect for me?
