Think food friendly.

Monitoring your thoughts is a powerful exercise for people who have IBS. You may have a column in your food diary to keep track of what you’re thinking when you’re eating so you can easily see the correlation between your thoughts and your IBS symptoms.

When you’re thinking negative thoughts as you eat something, you’re associating that thought with the food. So when you reach for a food that you’re concerned may be a trigger for your IBS, stop for a moment and consider how often your thoughts take you in a negative direction.

Try to practice thinking positive thoughts about food.
