Hi there, I love your blog! Being a naturally tall and thin girl, myself, it's good to see other people who live healthily and enjoy good, healthy food :) I have IBS too and I'd be really interested to hear about your experiences with it. What did you find helped the most for you?

Hi there, I love your blog! Being a naturally tall and thin girl, myself, it's good to see other people who live healthily and enjoy good, healthy food :) I have IBS too and I'd be really interested to hear about your experiences with it. What did you find helped the most for you?

Helloo! Ah we’re quite similar, then (: I enjoy seeing it as well! When it started to get worse, I started to keep a food journal and write down the time that I ate, what I ate, and at first I wrote down how I felt afterwards. Keeping that just helped me to realize what foods effected me the most. Now this was mostly before starting my healthy lifestyle so when I think back on it, it was basically just unhealthy and processed foods. And dairy, since I’m lactose intolerant. I noticed that drinking a smoothie every day helped keep things regulated and moving, and exercise! I used to take a 10-20 minute walk about 10 minutes after dinner. Doing yoga and core exercises helped keep things moving as well, and it helped keep a lot of the bloating down. Avoiding as much processed foods as I can, and refined carbs, also helps. The biggest problem I have with it all is mostly bloating, when I’m eating well. When I eat things I shouldn’t, I get a bit of digestion problems and abnormal bowel movements. Even if you’re not lactose intolerant, avoiding dairy (and meat) helps digestion a lotttt as well. Basically, eating as many whole foods as I can, mostly avoiding processed and junk foods, and regular exercise helps keep it all good. IBS is a difficult thing to live with, but it gets easier. When I think about how I deal with it, it’s not as hard as it would seem. Well, if you have your cravings under control haha.
