You have to eat every 2 hours because why???
From a general health and IBS standpoint, yes, it is more beneficial to eat several smaller meals throughout the day, but it's not necessary to be regimental with it.
Grazing is also really good. Do you work at a place where you can be constantly drinking or nibbling something?
I always used to have a large thermos of hot peppermint tea and drank that and sipped water throughout the day. Also, fat free saltines (soda crackers) were an awesome staple, plain hot rice, applesauce cups, bread, lots of soluble fibre. Low fat peanut butter is a great protein to keep you from being hungry, and if you have small portions, it's healthy to maintain muscle and won't upset your IBS. Make sure your snacks aren't too large. If they're too large, and they make you sick, that's not going to help your weight either.
I always feel the sickest when I eat too much at a time. Also, I've recently learned that I do much better with unprocessed foods. Start with peppermint tea, then a SF and then something else small. See if that helps at all.
