for me caffeine, coffee (caffinated or decaf) and oranges give me increased bm's. I seem to be okay with decaf tea and can have coffee every once in a great while, problem is, I think I am ok but turn out drinking more and more.
I thought I was headed back into a flare two weeks ago, turns out it was the oranges I has just started eating. Went away after I stopped.
Also check out probiotics.
Hope you can reduce your bm's soon.
all my best,
