What Are the Diet Recommendations for IBS Constipation?

Q:
What are the diet recommendations for IBS constipation?

A:
People with IBS constipation often suffer from abdominal pain apart from constipation. Such patients may want to seek help at once. The following diet recommendations may help:

  • Eating smaller servings of high-fiber foods such as cabbage, broccoli or legumes may reduce your abdominal cramps.
  • Good sources of fiber include whole-grain bread and cereals, fruits, vegetables, and beans.
  • Dried plums, prune juice, ground flaxseed, and water also help loosen bowels.
  • Stay away from coffee, carbonated drinks, and alcohol. They can slow down your stools. So can processed foods such as chips, cookies, and white bread and rice.
