10 Tips for Making Foods Friendlier to Your IBS Tummy

Watch fatty meats (and grill, don’t fry).

Greasy burgers and fried chicken slow down your digestive system for hours and cause IBS cramping and abdominal pain. If you eat animal protein, go lean. If you can, talk to your neighborhood butcher about the cuts of meat that are leanest; you can typically get extra-lean ground beef.

If chicken is your thing, try grilled chicken breast rather than fried chicken wings.

When grilling, keep the fire to a minimum; burned meat may be kind of tasty, but the charcoal is hard to digest. Try the indoor countertop grills that drain the fat from your food while you’re cooking. You can grill vegetables and meat at the same time and have a full tasty meal while using just one appliance.
