      NEWS: Discord Server & Clubs (aka Groups) are back!   08/19/17

      Hello everyone I'm back with a couple big updates! Firstly we now have a Discord server, this is a real-time chat messaging client you can run on your phone, desktop, or anywhere. It's a pretty powerful desktop application that enables people to chat together, and with multiple channels you can find people interested in what you're interested in. If you don't already have a Discord account it's pretty easy to get one, just click the following invite link to get started: https://discord.gg/Ahzu9jC Secondly I'm proud to announce the return of Groups, it's been renamed to Clubs and is now available here: https://muscle-growth.org/clubs/. This system is entirely user generated and allows users to create groups of their own based on any subject they want. Go ahead and try it now, visit the link above to get started if you want to create or join a group!   As always thank you to all of our donators and Patreon contributors who keep the forums going!

IBS...

Recommended Posts

Out of curiosity anyone else suffer from IBS? Seriously it makes my life a living hell - every fucking day. Had it for over 20 years, probably linked to another issue, and tried most things but nothing has worked. Not great for bulking.

Like to hear from anyone in a similar situation or anyone with any ideas to cope with what is literally, a pain in the arse?

Have you found any relief? I've tried most things but with no luck I practically live on Imodium every day which I'm sure isn't particularly healthy.

I have tested probiotics. It made my condition much worse. There are differences between how IBS expresses itself in individual cases. I don't doubt, that it works for some persons, but we can't expect it to be beneficial for everyone.

I use 'Colese' medication for it.

Imodium is usually for short term use isn't it? Do you eat rice and blueberries daily? Carrot juice might be good, too.

For some, avoiding fried food might alleviate the troubles, but, as I wrote before, the individual variations has to be considered, and it doesn't work for everyone.

I figured out that I really can't handle sugar or sugar substitutes.  I can tolerate sugar in my coffee or tea, but candy or junk food will give me the runs within 30 minutes.  Also, it means I have to used unflavoured whey protein powder.  I got used to it, though.  Have you tried to cut out sugar?
