It’s not what you eat
It's the way that you eat it
It’s often not just what you eat, it’s the way that you eat it that affects how you and your bowels feel. If you are anxious, frustrated or on the go when you are digesting a meal, the emotions will tend to upset the gut and cause symptoms of IBS. People who miss out on meals and then gorge themselves on high fat foods with lots of beer or wine are playing havoc with their irritable bowels. It is no wonder they complain.
Good digestion requires peace and relaxation. Don’t rush your meals. Sit down. Give yourself time. Eat with your family and friends, talk, laugh, enjoy your food and if a small glass of wine helps, then why not. Eat small tasty portions, chew and savour your food. Eating is one of life’s great pleasures. Enjoy it.
