How do we know what foods to avoid when it comes to IBS?
Many of us have experienced bloating and stomach cramps after eating too much triple cheese pizza at a party.

Gluten for weeks. Then you think, was it the wine after all? IBS, which is short for irritable bowel syndrome feels like this every single day which often results in confusion around what to eat and maybe even eliminating entire food groups.
