Many people are reported to have diarrhea however more studies are indicating its because until recently, people did not relate constipation as an IBS disorder. Until the marketing of Zelnorm came out, a lot of people just pulled out the prune juice or mineral oil and began the rollercoaster of alternating bowel habits not bringing forth their symptoms to doctors.
I don't think that a "no" carb diet is a healthy choice either. Its all about
the good carbs vs. the bad carbs and making responsible choices (ie. whole wheat bread vs. white bread, whole wheat pasta (which is quite good by the way) vs. white pasta). Many people have indicated that they cannot do salads as most IBSers have trouble with any raw veggie. However hands down, fiber is really important in so many ways and if you can get a lot of it through diet rather than supplements, even better.
Have a wonderful day :)
