In our August Newsletter, we write how some research shows that eating a low-FODMAP diet improves gastrointestinal discomfort.  Making dietary changes isn’t always easy but for some people prone to GI problems, a low FODMAP diet may be helpful. 

Below is a list of friendly low FODMAP foods. Generally trying to stop usage of the bad foods if you can is advisable but if you really need certain items try and keep the usage down to a minimum. Onion and garlic are particularly bad triggers and should be avoided as best as you can. Try and avoid processed foods and meats. Always look at ingredient lists and try and look for the main culprits: onion, garlic and wheat products. Try and keep fruit to one portion per day.

You can also look at our Low Carb Diet that is consistent with the low-FODMAP principles.
