I agree with all of the previous answers that some types of food intolerances may play a role in your symptoms, there are also many other diet factors that can play a role. For some people, increasing certain types of fibre may improve their symptoms (make sure you also are drinking plenty of water!), but for others adding more fibre can cause more bloating.
Other foods that can trigger symptoms can include fatty foods, spicy foods, coffee etc.
For some people benefit from particular type of probiotics (note, not all probiotics will improve gut symptoms, there are many different types and they all have different benefits) chat to an expert to find one that may help you.
There is no single magic solution to IBS. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a complex issue and can be triggered by any number of foods or environmental triggers, including stress.
Our clinical approach is to tease apart your symptoms and your food intake to help you identify which foods (or food groups) may be playing a role in your symptoms. I would recommend finding yourself an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) with a special interest in IBS to help you take a stepwise approach to doing this.
