Is there anyone else out there with IBS doing IP? If yes, I would love to hear from you and learn from your experience!
In retrospect, I have had IBS for several years (contribute to the weight gain as I would also lean towards 'comfort' carbs) but was only diagnosed two years ago. I tend to experience nausea, bloating, bad cramps and occasional D. I take prescription meds with each meal and use Immodium or Gravol when I am not feeling well or having a flare.
When I first started IP, I was amazed at the changed in my IBS. It didn't go away but it got much better. I think in part because I was not eating gluten (I am not celiac but gluten and my gut don't get along) and alcohol. And once I stopped eating sugar alchohols (especially mannitol), that was a big help.
I sometimes do have to suck on a scotch mint when I am not feeling well and these are not P1 approved. My coach knows and said I may have to expect slower losses but I am okay with that.
Would love to hear from others about their experiences and what foods are / are not working for you!
