People with IBS constipation often suffer from abdominal pain apart from constipation. Such patients may want to seek help at once. The following diet recommendations may help:
- Eating smaller servings of high-fiber foods such as cabbage, broccoli or legumes may reduce your abdominal cramps.
- Good sources of fiber include whole-grain bread and cereals, fruits, vegetables, and beans.
- Dried plums, prune juice, ground flaxseed, and water also help loosen bowels.
- Stay away from coffee, carbonated drinks, and alcohol. They can slow down your stools. So can processed foods such as chips, cookies, and white bread and rice.
