and nice to see you again!

IBS-A for 20 years with terrible bloating and gas. On the diet since April 2004. Remember this from Heather's information pages:
"You absolutely must eat insoluble fiber foods, and as much as safely possible, but within the IBS dietary guidelines. Treat insoluble fiber foods with suitable caution, and you'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of them, in very healthy quantities, without problem." Please eat IF foods!

You're welcome! I tell it like I know it--lentils for me spell fiber-bomb city. Too much fiber for me in one feed/meal = gas, bloating and D. I can do beans if they are kind of a condiment or a topping--that's probably why hummus and other bean dips don't really cause me a problem. Even with Beano (which I don't waste my money and energy on anymore--I apply good old fashioned common sense and past experience to the situation), I might by-pass some gas and discomfort and bloating, however the inevitable zoom-zoom of D would come anyways.

Lentils are little insoluble fiber-bombs, so tread cautiously. They're good and good for you, but a little goes a long way! Those little lentils are high-test! I think a serving has more fiber than Fiber One cereal or All Bran buds! Call in the Gas-busters!

I'll pop in now and then to the boards--I just need to guard against being to obsessive, a tendency of mine!

Yes, I eat a ton of beans, usually one or two servings a day. When I switched to eating more vegetarian, I did have some problems with gas early on. Beano didn't do much for me, but fennel did, and ajwain is also good ( But those just help with the gas, so if it caused a D attack... well, I'd go slowly. Hummus or the red lentil dip (IBS cookbook one) might be a good place to start again.

IBS-C, D and nausea with acute attacks, stable on EFI for 3 years
