    Female Body Builder with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Problem

    I am preparing for a figure competition but struggling with my diet as my IBS continues to flare up. I was diagnosed with IBS more than 10 years ago.
    I have been follow a FODMAP diet.
    I cannot consume any dairy based protein or pea protein. I am too scared to try brown rice protein.
    I am always bloated, and have really bad gas. I feel sluggish. I do not feel toned and fit like I should with the amount of exercise I do.
    Should I cut egg whites, my 1 tbsp. of peanut butter? How can I consume the protein I need?
    I do consume a small bottle of diet tonic water at night which has artificial sweeteners but I have always had this drink and never suffered like this.
    I have cut down alcohol consumption to a minimum. I have 2 gin and tonics every month or nothing at all.
    I come home at 8.30pm at night after work, studying and training so I have my evening meal at 9.30pm and go to bed at 10.30pm.
    Is that too late to eat even though it is a clean meal?
    I wake up with stomach pains, feel really full, bad gas.
    I look like I'm pregnant.

    My diet:

    4 scrambled egg whites, 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup blueberries

    30g almonds

    1tbsp peanut butter, 2 rice cakes

    100 grams Chicken mince cooked with zucchini, capsicum and carrot and spinach salad, 1/2 avocado, tomato, balsamic vinegar

    Small tin tuna in olive oil, 1 tbsp. peanut butter

    100 grams Chicken breast or 150 grams Salmon and spinach/rocket salad

    Have you tried playing around with fiber intake? Do you have a list of foods you know you can eat without issue? Are you stressed currently? Have you specifically tried whey isolate? Have you talked to a doctor and been tested to make sure you do not have celiac disease or some other medical issue?

    Came to post this. Probiotics may help with more comprehensive digestion/ utilization of the nutrients you’re consuming.

    I don’t have IBS, but my wife and son do, so I can sort of understand your struggles. So sorry to hear.

    Peanut butter gives me terrible gas, and to a lesser extent so do almonds, those may be giving you problems. All protein bars I’ve tried also give me bad gas.

    Can you do dairy at all? Oikos has yogurt at 15 grams of protein each. If it’s just lactose Fairlife milk is very high in protein and lactose free. If not, Quaker has a high protein oatmeal, and Special K has a high protein cereal, I eat both. Other than that, on days I eat a lot of grilled chicken thigh I’ll hit my protein without a protein shake.
