IBS and dieting ?

Has anyone had problems with sever tummy ache when they changed their diet whilst slimming ? I recently joined SW and have lost 12 lbs in three weeks but am now experiencing sever bloating and stomach cramping. The one thing I am doing now is eating much more fruit and was wondering if this is not agreeing with me ? I'm going to my local GP today and see what he thinks but just wondered if anyone else had experienced this ?

I think this is fairly normal as you adjust to the increased fibre in your diet. You could try peppermint tea. I find it really helpful for my IBS. It can be an acquired taste so I put sweetener or honey in mine.

I found eating better as I dropped weight helped my IBS, I've not suffered in a longgg time but things like pizza don't agree with me. It's awful!

Check out this page for a little more information depending on your symptoms:

There is also Candida. Basically a rival digestive bacteria that thrives in a sugary environment. Unfortunately as good as fruit is for you it is still essentially a source of fructose sugars. To much fruit can cause an overgrowth ( if Candida is your problem ) which gives symptoms such as bloating and digestive cramps. There are many cures for this and loads of pills n potions. If I may make a recommendation there is a book by Zoe Harcombe called Why do I Overeat? that explains it all and gives a simple anti candida diet you do for a week or so. You will know in a matter of days doing it based on how much better you feel.
