10 Tips for Making Foods Friendlier to Your IBS Tummy

Consider the Fit for Life strategy.

In 1985, Harvey and Marilyn Diamond wrote Fit for Life (Warner Books, Inc.), which was based on the premise that you shouldn’t mix certain food groups. It suggested that combining foods like protein with foods like fruit causes incomplete digestion of both because protein requires more acidic gastric juices than fruit does. By paying attention to what foods you eat together, you may take some of the pressure off your digestive juices.

If nothing else, it may be a way to give your digestive system a break from its usual way of dealing with food.

Eat fruits by themselves.

Eat carbs and proteins separately.

Never drink water with meals.

Avoid dairy products.
