YANMDietician, but...

I'm a fairly healthy 32yo lady with a few issues that may be related to what I eat. I have some extra time in January and would like to use it to cook and eat a more healthy diet. We are also planning to TTC in January. What diet changes will give me the most bang for my buck, so to speak? [more inside]

Chronic lateness and re-conditioning my irritable BS

I'm chronically late to work. And I have chronic IBS-D (I mean, I think? I don't know what else it would be) that pops up here and there when I'm stressed out. My poor time management in the mornings and the bathroom stuff combine to make life difficult, and I'd like to re-train my gut so it chooses more convenient times to act up. [more inside]

Neuroplasticity and IBS - What can you tell me?

FODMAP challenge - can I test it by eating a pile of high-FODMAP food?

I've been trying the low-FODMAP diet for IBS. I've avoided most of the prohibited foods, but I see now that serving size matters a lot, even for the low-FODMAP foods, so it turns out I haven't been so faithful to the diet. Question: Can I test my FODMAP sensitivity by eating a ton of high-FODMAP foods for a few days? Mmm, bread, garlic, onions, mushrooms, apples, and peaches!

Freezer Meal suggestions! Difficulty level: Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Due to busy life schedules, my family has begun cooking weekday meals in a big cooking session each weekend. We cook 'em, we freeze 'em and on worknights, we thaw 'em and we eat 'em. There are a lots of fantastic recipes for freezer meals in cookbooks and on the interwebs, but we've got a hitch - our family has a member with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which puts limits on what ingredients we can use. (exciting caveats and details inside!) [more inside]

Why does my stupid body hurt so much?

After years of mysterious pains in my side, treatment for colon cancer in 2014 and a colonoscopy yesterday, last night I ended up in the ER howling in agony for hours. My doctors aren't really sure what happened. YAobviouslyNMD, but I'm hoping the smarties of Ask Metafilter can offer some ideas about what the hell is going on with my stupid goddamned body.

I need a map. A FODMAP map.

So after all of the recent hubbub about how gluten may not be the culprit in many cases of indigestion/discomfort, I learned for the first time about FODMAPs and realized, "Wait a minute... I have gotten painfully bloated from eating ALL of those high FODMAP foods!" BUT. When I search the internet for FODMAP resources I find a lot of woo and a lot of really bland recipes. Is there a way to try a low FODMAP diet without dying of boredom? [more inside]

Painful digestive condition, round 2
