I've developed IBS in the last couple months. I can handle most sugars (since I have them in moderation), but a full order of mac & cheese will give me a lot of loose stool. Benefiber has helped with bulking up stool, I can't eat spicy foods and Mexican foods from restaurants (but I have no problem with homemade Mexican food). Even when I was flaring last year, I was able to eat just about anything. But now that I'm in remission, I'm actually limiting my food options much more.
I agree Sam--campus food sucks! Most days I just ended up eating wraps or sandwiches with grilled chicken b/c it's the healthiest thing offered!
