Don't hope to pick yourself uk, just do it!! Life doesn't wait, and you should not wait for next week to 'restart', restart tonight, or at lunch, depending from what tims it is where you are. Restart NOW!! And don't stop, keep your head down, keep running and smash walls!

What came first, the IBS flair up or the "not doing well" on your plan? Do you think that IBS flair up is a result of eating junk food? I don't understand how you can "be in a rut" when you have an IBS flair up. Doesn't eating make you feel worse? What is the benefit of waiting until next week with an irritable bowel? Will continuing junk food make the IBS better? Does healthy food cause fair ups? I guess I need to read up again on IBS, I thought that most people have greatly improved symptoms with a healthy diet.

no IBS isnt just triggered by food ,there are different forms my form is where i mainly suffer from back and bowel spasams and they cause great pain. And it can come on at any time. And i dont eat junk food. MY title as in a rut and under the weather was simply due to feeling unwell not because i went on a binge.If anything my appetite has went. Trigger foods are trial and error yes some foods trigger it but symptoms can come on reguardless. Any IBS sufferer will know this.

I understand where you're coming from. My IBS flares up most of the time due to stress or mania (I'm bipolar). Very annoying! Sometimes I don't want to eat anything because it just seems like too much of an ordeal.

I hope you feel better soon!
