Yes this year no holds barred for me. I will be having Christmas dinner at my house this year and even though its a lot of work... I can eat what I want and even though I know I will pay for it... I am comfortable knowing that I can hide away in my master bathroom in my bedroom if need be. The stress of not being in someone else's house this year might make my symptoms not as bad as they would be also. :)

I've learned to not over-produce too many treat gifts for friends and relatives......because I eat them. But darnit, this year I made too much "White chocolate chex mix". I swear, it's my downfall every year. You'd think I'd learn my lesson, but I don't! It has corn and rice chex, cheerios, pretzels, roasted peanuts and m&ms, then you pour melted white chocolate over it all. I fall for this every year. I eat and eat and eat it. And I think I'm doing okay........then I hit the wall! I'm really suffering now. Have I learned my lesson? Probably not!

Blondie15,
I also feel your pain!!!!!!  Oh, and Happy Holidays too!
 
Haystacks, Thumbprints,Apricot bars,Lemon bars,Fudge,Magics bars, Harlequin dippers,Rum balls,Costco's Lemon cake.. skull need I say more? I also have tins of delicacies that I hate to part with.
 
What I will say is Thank goodness this comes but once a year!
   I keep asking myself what in the world did I do to deserve this IBS? Coffee? yep. Spicy foods?  yep. Dairy? all my life. and KAPOWIE! No more pizza,coffee,Mexican or Italian foods, Dairy with casein,or sweets.
Sure, I could indulge,BUT WHO WANTS THE PAIN? nono I'm finding out it's safer not to eat these types foods than to spend it afterwards in painful Cramps. eyes
uh huh..uh huh....right-T-O  ................................... yeah
 
BTW....Does anyone have any luck with yoplait yogurt? IBS safe?
What other types of foods do you eat safely?
                    Thanks and Take care.
The only thing that I can stomach is a protein Drink ( ice, banana,Shaklee Soy protein power,ground flaxseed,organic cherry juice-trader joe's)  in the morning,and because I'm afraid of cramping, I don't eat anything else for the rest of the day/night.

Hi unhappycramper,
I don't have problems with yogurt however remember we all have different tolerances. Its gonna be all about trial and error. A food diary will work best in identifying the foods that cause you problems. Its really not that bad to maintain and a lot better at knowing what is causing you problems.
Take Care
