Hello!

I'm currently transitioning from a vegetarian diet to a whole food plant based diet for health reasons.

I have plant food triggers for both IBS and Migraines (cabbage, corn, kale, lettuce, and Brussel sprouts) I've watched the documentaries and have seen people heal from their previous conditions.

I guess my question is has anyone been in this situation going in and been able to eat a trigger foods later on without any trouble?

Also, more curiosity than anything, has anyone started liking a vegetable they absolutely hated before going plant based?

Thanks!:D

Hi Potatogirl, and welcome to the forum.

Because IBS can be triggered by plant foods that are important vegan staples (examples: beans, cruciferous vegetables), the standard vegan nutrition guides may not be suitable for you.

You may find it useful to make an appointment with a Registered Dietitian who specializes in digestive conditions and in vegetarian nutrition. They may be able to help you plan a vegetarian/vegan diet that will improve, rather than exacerbate, your IBS.

In the United States, you can find a local Registered Dietitian through this website: http://www.eatright.org . Just click on the "Find an Expert" button, located in the upper-right-hand portion of the webpage.

In the U.K., you can find a local Registered Dietitian on the Freelance Dietitians website: http://www.freelancedietitians.org/

In New Zealand, you can find a local Registered Dietitian through the Dietitians New Zealand website: http://dietitians.org.nz/find-a-dietitian/

In Australia, you can find a local Accredited Practising Dietitian through the Dietitians Association of Australia: https://daa.asn.au/find-an-apd/

In Canada, you can find a local Registered Dietitian at the Dietitians of Canada website: http://www.dietitians.ca/Find-a-Dietitian.aspx .
