What Is the Low FODMAP Diet?
Have you or anyone you know ever had digestive issues? Most of us would probably answer “yes” to that question; we’ve all had days where we haven’t eaten very well or we’ve over-indulged (I’m looking at you, Thanksgiving) and our stomachs have paid the price the next day. But when those food issues start to happen with increasing frequency and the duration or intensity increases, that’s something different. It can be just embarrassing, of course — symptoms such as bad gas or bloating — or can be distressful when that stomach issue turns into constipation or cramping, for example. In that case, many people turn to what they’re eating to try and figure out solutions, and that may have them investigating the Low FODMAP Diet.
That diet eliminates a lot of things that may trouble stomachs, and in doing so gives people a path to relief. What’s included in that diet? This graphic explains it.
