... Tinker, I have been using the FODMAP book by Patsy Catsos. I love fruit soooo much though, so it has been hard to severely limit how much fruit I can have.

If you are experiencing more pain/gas/loose movements after starting the fiber, my advice is to reduce the amount for a little bit until your system gets used to it. I take mine before I eat, usually at night. It may help to eat foods you know don't irritate your stomach (or the BRAT diet) for a while so your tummy can heal. ... (92 replies)
