Tried to follow FODMAP and also had a difficult time with it. I also was restricting all dairy and gluten. I looked into the KETO (we have two KETO teams) and that worked well for me. It took some time to adjust and actually enjoyed that style of eating. Did it for several months and lost weight. It is high fat, low carb and low protein plan. There are some vegetables that don't raise the carbs too much that are allowed.
Since attaining my goal weight I have added more carbs and am eating full fat dairy. It is a good way to maintain and enjoy the foods you like. Still don't eat anything processed and use lettuce leaves as the bread for sandwiches.
I hope this has enlightened you. Please do your own research since there is vast information on the internet.
