The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends these dietary changes to help keep IBS in check:

  • Eat at consistent times each day to help regulate bowel function.

  • Avoid large, heavy meals in favor of smaller, lighter ones.

  • Eat plenty of foods rich in fiber, such as whole grains and produce.

  • Drink plenty of water and other fluids. Limit alcohol, caffeine and artificial sweeteners.

  • Keep a food diary to help identify problem foods and poor eating habits.
