I have had irritable bowel syndrome for 10 years. I take Metamucil every morning and also Meta Align. I find I get bloated when I eat anything with wheat in it so I try to avoid that.

Some of this information is outdated. It is now known that foods like prunes and beans do contribute to IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Go look up low FODMAP diet, it is what can help.
