Hi Dr. Graham.

I've been eating 80/10/10 for two years now, and it's the best approach to eating for dealing with my IBS that I've found, with a few caveats.

1) Eating any citrus fruits, fruits of the Annonaceae family of plants, tomatoes and related (tomatillos, tamarillos, etc), and a few other fruits causes flare ups of my IBS.

2) Eating pretty much any vegetables, including soft leafy greens like lettuce, causes a flare up. Peeled cucumbers are the only vegetable (technically a fruit) that I can eat without problems.

Earlier this year I did a 15-day water-only fast which went well. I'm glad I did it, but it didn't make my digestive system less reactive to the above foods.

So the problem I'm having is that I don't think it's healthy to not eat vegetables, but my system can't handle them.

I eat very simply. Monomeals of fruit, etc.

When I eat vegetables, I usually just eat the lettuce or whatever plain and by itself, but I still have issues of gas, diarrhea, etc.

So what would you suggest for me?

Should I start taking supplement pills?

I guess I could start juicing stuff, but I'm not really a fan of that approach.

Any advice would be appreciated.
