Woman's IBS improves dramatically after banning four foods from her diet

Getting rid of these four foods made a massive difference to her IBS.

If you've ever suffered from IBS, you'll know that it can dramatically impact your day-to-day life and managing the symptoms can be difficult.


One woman has shared how she changed her diet, banning four foods in particular, and this resulted in a major improvement.

Emily Catterall has shared her story and said that before making this change, she suffered from severe bloating and stomach discomfort almost constantly.

After visiting her doctor, the Lancashire native said that she went on medication but this didn't agree with her.

After putting up with this for months, the 24-year-old decided to do a food intolerance test and this came back with a list of foods that didn't agree with her.

Update: so 9 weeks in on my dairy free journey after my @yorktestlabs results advised me of my intolerances, I took the test after being diagnosed with IBS - coming from someone who had daily flare ups, in 9 weeks I have had 4 slight hiccups ! Including one last night but I have still come so far with it, all the things I have to be without are so worth it ? - - - - #weightloss #slimmingworlduk #slimmingworld #slimmingworldsupport #slimmingworldfollowers #slimmingworldfood #lbd #nightout #blonde #selfie #girls #weightlossjourney #diet #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #thenandnow #transformation #progress #throwback #fashionblogger #gymgirls #workout #cleaneating #blogger #fashion #weave #microweft

Chatting to The Sun, she explained:

"My results came back within 10 days and showed I was intolerant to egg white, egg yolk, cow’s milk, goat’s milk, and I had a borderline intolerance to yeast and beef".


Emily eliminated these foods from her diet, said she felt amazing from "day two" and over twelve weeks, things improved massively.

She's now able to eat out without any problems and has managed to resume her exercise routine.

Emily even managed to introduce the trigger foods into her diet with the guidance of nutritionists and says that she rarely experiences any issues.

Some changes including swapping dairy for soya have worked out really well and now she's able to eat what she wants within reason.


She also has advice for anyone going through the same problems and it makes a lot of sense.

"I tell everyone if you are uncomfortable after eating you need to find out what it is because there is nothing worse. It’s so much better to know what is causing problems. It ruined my life daily".
