13 Common Irritable Bowel Syndrome Food Triggers

Many people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) report that symptoms are triggered by certain foods. One way to find out if any of the following foods cause a flare up (cramping, bloating, diarrhea, etc) is to keep a food diary. Take notes on how you feel before and after certain foods and try eliminating one food at a time and recording how you feel.

There is no cure for IBS, but making changes to your diet and lifestyle can manage it.
