My salad days just go on and on and on and on and on and on.. GREENS ARE THE ONLY FOOD MICHELLE IS ABLE TO STOMACH FOR PAST EIGHT YEARS.

Byline: Emma Grace Smith

For most of us, a diet of salad is normally just for the short term to lose a few pounds.

But for Michelle McCallum, it has been an everyday meal for the last eight years.

She suffers from severe irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and fresh salad is the only food that doesn't give her excruciating stomach cramps.

The mum-of-three, 33, from Bridge of Weir, Renfrewshire, was diagnosed while expecting her first child, Ryan, at the age of 18.

The stress and hormone change took their toll, triggering agonising stomach cramps and bloating which have continued for 14 years. &#
