    grains as triggers for irritable bowel syndrome
    TwilaK posted:
    I would like to hear from anyone else with IBS, with grains(wheat, barley, rye, oats, etc, cornmeal,etc) that are trigger foods. I would like to hear what you do to get your daily requirement of grains in. I am doing Weight WAtchers, and am having a difficult time trying to find grains that I can tolerate, especially for breakfast.

    I have IBD and my digestion is far more finicky in the morning, and I've seen posts that say the same is true for many people with IBS. I'd suggest testing grains later in the day and seeing how well you do with them then. It may be that you won't be able to eat grains in the morning and will have to stick with potatoes as your morning starch.
