3. Lean Proteins
High-fat diet should be avoided by the people suffering from IBS, because high-fat diets trigger the contractions of colon, says Lee. All such persons should prefer lean proteins in their diet. Fat content is a great reason behind avoiding of fried foods and red meat.
Red meat is specifically harmful as it helps in promoting such bacteria of gut that produce the type of chemicals which increase the risk of clogging of arteries.
4. Low-Fructose Fruits
Fructose or fruit sugar may well be responsible for gas and bloating and if you have any of these problems, you should avoid high fructose diets such as apples, mangoes and pears, says Lee.
Citrus fruits such as grapefruit and oranges, and berries are less likely to cause gas problems as they are easy to tolerate due to lesser quantities of fructose. Bananas are also low in fructose, which makes them a good candidate for low-fructose diet. They also have a substance called inulin that stimulates growth of good gut bacteria.
Avocado also helps in promoting healthy digestive function as it is full of essential nutrients such as potassium. Avocado also lacks fructose and is a superfood packed with fiber which makes it an even better diet for people with gas problems.
Avocados are a high-fat diet like nuts and are also nutrient dense, says Lee. Due to this, they need to be consumed in a moderate way.
