Hi Chely,
Your best bet is chicken and turkey. Veggies aren't so bad either if you can cook them thoroughly (I mean really well, like almost mushy). I'm a big fan of baked chicken breast with mashed potatoes and zuccini. Rice is great too... really easy on the gut (unless you have some allergy or intolerance).
You should probably stay away from tomato sauces unless you know you don't have a problem with acid. Fruits are tricky.... I have no problems with pears, but some do. Apples seem to be the only fruit bad for pretty much every IBSer. Anything with seeds can be problematic (i.e strawberries & raspberries).
I'm sure others will be around shortly to add to this.
Glad you're taking the health route. :-)
Good luck!

Eating for IBS is a GREAT book! :-)
White rice is probably the safest for you. Eat how ever much of it you can handle... but whatever you do, do not stuff yourself. Eating too much of anything is trouble for IBS. Eat a small handful. If white rice is too plain and boring for you, you can try cooking it with any flavored broth to give it flavor. I'd stay away from the flavored rice (i.e. Rice-A-Roni and the like) because it contains conservatives and MSG. Conservatives and MSG are NOT good for IBSers.

I agree with 7Lil. Eating large amounts of any food will trigger IBS. Regularity and Routine is what I have to do to make my gut happy.
Pancolitis since May 2006
Have had IBS since childhood. (Maybe it was really UC)
Asacol, Atenolol, Zoloft, Hydrocodone
Acidophilus, Multiple Vitamin, Turmeric, Fish Oil

try going to amazon, ebay or a used bookstore.  You may be able to find a discounted copy that you can afford.  If you are a teacher you can receive discounts at most of the major bookstores.  Just a thought.

please anayze what you are eating by reading labels. Anything with high fructose corn syrup will ravage your digestion. I urge everyone to do this. You will be shocked. If you are drinking large amounts of soda, gatoraide, lemonaide this could be your link. Drink water. Then after a month see what the outcome is. That is all you have to do. ketchup, hot mustard, salal dressings of all kind, ice cream, soup, cake mixes etc. etc. all have high fructose corn syrup. Many people have extreme allergies or are hypersensitive to high fructose corn syrup. I am convinced that this is a key yes to weight loss but also to IBS. It has worked for me. When I don't read labels and all of a sudden have a bout with diarrea I go back and look at the label and low and behold it will have HFCS in it. Many products in fast food restaurants have HFCS. Go to http://www.foodfacts.info/high-fructose-corn-syrup.shtml. They will give you a list of items from many fast food places. Also, most IBS sufferers cannot eat or drink milk products or dishes made with milk products. Read labels and be diarrhea free!!!
