Hello -

No matter how safe a food is for IBS, eating a huge portion of it in one sitting can trigger an attack. Your gastrocolic reflex reacts (or, with IBS, over-reacts) in direct correlation to the number of calories and sheer volume you consume in a meal.

While this makes it easy to see why high fat foods causes IBS problems - fat is more than twice as calorie-dense as carbohydrates and proteins - it also means that bingeing - on anything - carries serious risks for those of us with IBS.

Don't kid yourself that if your friends break out a pint of ice cream and a spoon for a splurge, you can do the same with fat-free sorbet. It's not just ingredients when it comes to the IBS diet, but quantity too. Size really does matter.

You are not alone!
