So I've had IBS for just under a year and it goes through stages of being relatively normal to being horrible...Like now. I just wanted to know how much veg I can eat and what sort of meat would be good to start on. Is chicken a safe bet? Basically if anyone wants to give me a rough diet plan I would be thankful beyond measure. I'm on a limited budget as well!

Thank you everyone!

From what I remember reading, the key thing for IBS is grain, and especially wheat elimination. Not an expert in this area. But eliminating grains leaves a lot of room in your diet for other, more complex carbs (like sweet potatoes) and for increased fat intake, if not increased protein intake also. In Paleo world, butter, olive oil, ghee, coconut oil are considered good ways to put more fat into your diet. Avacados are high in fat.

I did start spending a LOT more money on whole foods, and it really put a pinch on things. An inexpensive meat source for me has been a weekly pot roast of whatever large hunk of pork is on sale. Its an affordable, large cut of meat that reheats well.
