The Low-FODMAP Diet

What’s a FODMAP? FODMAP is an acronym for “fermentable oligosaccharides,
disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols.” In simple terms, a low-FODMAP diet
restricts certain types of carbohydrates, providing symptomatic relief for many people
with IBS. By minimizing your consumption of foods containing FODMAPs, you
significantly reduce your chances of experiencing unpleasant symptoms like bloating,
cramps, and diarrhea.
Combining a standard elimination diet strategy with FODMAP foods instead of
allergens has become a successful strategy for managing IBS. If you suffer from IBS,
trying the Low-FODMAP diet will provide you with valuable tools to make food
choices that enhance your life and health, and could be the answer you seek for relief.

You might feel intimidated by a diet that restricts the foods you are allowed to eat.
Many aspects of family, social, and cultural life center around food, and by limiting
your diet, it may seem as though you are limiting your lifestyle. The good news is that
