BREAD and Chocolate

Does anyone else find that bread and/or dark chocolate can cause a flare up?

    2. I have been living off of bread( I am a texture eater and I love dough, I wish I could eat raw dough, I only eat white bread)honestly it is all I probably eat, but my GI told me carbs are bad because they can absorb water, and once they go through digestion may cause diarrhea. So I was told to come off bread. She suggested corn tortillas but they make me really sick.
      Since last month chocolate has been giving me heartburn, but I only eat enjoy life chocolate. I also started ibgrad last month so maybe that idwhy, but I normally am fine with chocolate as long as it is enjoy life brand.
      I hope this helps
