Sensible diet that works!
I have IBS and would love a diet to lose weight safely that doesnt leave me feeling bloated in the end. i have also been told by a dr that i am very acidic and should try eating food that would combat this. failing to tell me what they are!
I am 21 and have gain about 15kgs in the last 5 months. which is ridiculous! i can hardly believe it. I really need to lose about 20kgs to be my goal weight.
I do need to do more excersise - but i want a diet that works wonders safely and effectively!

Dear Lissa
You also need to consult a clinical dietitian (check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area.). The dietitian will work out a diet that assists to keep the bloating under control and causes weight loss. You need to have a dietary evaluation to identify the foods that are causing you distress with the IBS, something I cannot do for you, so see the dietitian ASAP.
