Disorder of the digestive tract, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is characterized by abdominal pain and transit problems. To relieve the symptoms of this disease, which affects at least 5% of the French population, it is essential to pay attention to what you put on your plate. Here are the foods to avoid.
When you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, also called functional colopathy, it is recommended to limit high-fat dishes, such as pizzas, or fries, because they stimulate the gastro-colic reflex of the intestine.
It is also necessary to reduce the intake of insoluble fibres, that is to say which do not dissolve in water and can promote gastric emptying and diarrhea. It is found in particular in wheat bran and whole wheat. Also avoid multi-grain bread.
Red, white, flower, Brussels… Cabbages, like all cruciferous vegetables, are not allies in case of IBS. And for good reason, they increase the production of intestinal gas and thus tend to cause bloating and other discomfort.
Coffee can have laxative effects and be a bowel irritant. That is why it is recommended not to abuse it. In the irritating drinks department, be aware that alcohol and citrus juices can also cause disorders of the intestinal wall.
Legumes such as lentils, beans, or peas are so-called fermentable foods. Once absorbed, they tend to ferment because our bodies fail to digest certain substances properly, and this amplifies digestive problems.
