I did a search and read the previous posts, but did not see this specific question addressed. Does anyone with IBS have issues with beans? Since I went totally vegan I have been eating beans almost every day and it is just ruining me. Stomach aches, constipation etc. I think it is just too much fibre. I am having it on salads and maybe that is not the best place for it since salads have a lot of fibre too. So I am trying an experiment where I am halving the serving size of the beans to see if that makes a difference. I was using the recommended half a cup and that is just too much in one sitting, I think
I did some calculations today on Spark People because I was worried that if I cut the serving size of the beans. I would not get enough protein, but I turned out to be over the protein for today so I guess that extra bit is not going to make much of a difference.
Any experience with this? Will cutting the portion size of the beans (and upping the portion of the rest of the dish instead) help, do you think.
