Blog: The right diet for IBS

Helpful dietary changes

Foods and drinks that may cause or worsen symptoms include:

  • fatty foods (most takeaway foods are fatty)
  • milk
  • chocolate
  • alcohol
  • caffeine - coffee, Red Bull
  • fizzy drinks

Some things are helpful. Fibre from fruit and vegetables is helpful, and if you want to take extra fibre, then Psyllium husk is the one to choose. If you haven't been eating fruit or veg much, then start slowly. New foods need new enzymes to digest them, and your body needs time to build them up.
