I don't think of it in terms of "grams" of soluble fiber or insoluble fiber when composing my plate. I tend to focus more on serving sizes or portions.

You ultimately need to figure out the equation that works for you and your situation. Also please know that it is variable based on what's happening with your life and your IBS. For example, I've gone back to school and that's stressful and it's reflected in my IBS-D, so I've got more SF on my plate that when in a low stress phase (i.e. my plate is 50 percent SF). I re-adjust calories so I don't gain weight. Also, for me, I find that I need a good SF start to the day as a sort of foundation, so I'm careful with berries in my smoothie and tend to go more for SF foods like mango and banana and choose applesauce for snacks. I'll make a curried carrot or sweet potato soup to go with lunch and avoid the heavy-bean ones when I'm at high attack risk.

I guess it's just hard to put a specific number on the SF/IF thing as everyone is different (thank goodness). Experiment with different serving size/portion ratios and see how it goes for you.

IBS-D, stable.
