Back on Track

Back on Track

The Holidays are over, but with winter still hanging on, it’s easy to get off track. Off track of your IBS diet that is. I [almost] always eat extremely healthy, and I don’t have a problem staying on track in that regard, but with an IBS diet being even stricter than healthy, it’s easy to get off track.Β woman-sprinting-on-the-track_h

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I mainly suffer from severe bloating and distention from IBS. I believe that high FODMAP foods are a big contributor to that bloating and distention. Sometimes it’s not painful, just annoying, so when it’s winter time, it’s easier to just cover it up with an oversized sweater and shimmy on my leggings. But today, I had extreme abdominal pain that has made me decide to get back on track. TODAY! I am vowing to you that I’m NOT going to cheat on my low-FODMAP diet any more. I’m a sucker for avocados. But they sure do make me the sucker because my stomach HURTS from eating those superfood berries.

Avocado. It’s on the NO list clear as day. I know it’s not good for my digestion and you know it, but I ate it anyways. And now I’m paying for it! So here is a refresher of the high FODMAP foods NOT to eat, and check out the blog post on how to be a low-FODMAP Sister. Β Let’s make a Sister pact to get back on track! So we don’t look [feel] like this.

Lastly, if it’s dairy, gluten, low-FODMAP, whatever it may be that is your vice and has crept back into your IBS free diet and is making you feel miserable, just try your best to get back on track. I know it’s hard, but it’s easier to not be in pain πŸ™‚

I hope you are feeling better than me today! Now, to the heating pad I go!

Xoxo,

IBS Sister
