10 Tempting Trigger Foods IBS Sufferers May Want to Avoid

Push away popcorn.

You may be tempted to grab a $12 tub of popcorn at the movie theater, but even if fat isn’t an issue for you, this stuff has the fat power to launch its own IBS attack. In fact, a large tub of buttered movie popcorn can have as much as 125 grams of fat. That’s more than double the recommended daily amount for an adult with a high-functioning GIT.

Fat isn’t the only issue with popcorn: It’s simply impossible to chew down the insoluble fiber particles of popcorn that can irritate a sensitive gut. Have you ever found popcorn casings lodged between your teeth days after having eaten popcorn? Imagine those bits lurking in your colon.

If something has survived in your mouth for three days without ever showing signs of being digested, you simply don’t want to go near the stuff if you have IBS.
