I just heard of fodmap yesterday. Seems kinda huge.
Personally, about mid-July I quit eating grains. I replaced the grains with lots of veggies on my plate, hard boiled and scrambled eggs, nuts, avocados and more meat than I had been eating, which wasn't much. I've also recently switched to using coconut milk in my coffee. The first two weeks were a bit rough energy-wise and now that's getting better. My appetite and energy levels have really leveled off nicely. It's amazing that after cutting out grains, my sweet tooth is almost non-existent. Yogurt and blueberries sound much more appetizing to me than ice cream, which used to be a favorite of mine. Dinner is much more enjoyable as it no longer goes *thunk* into my stomach, and I start to get nicely sleepy somewhere between 9 & 9:30 pm.
Best wishes with modifying your diet to improve your gut. I hear ya! I've had serious problems with my gut that have landed me in the hospital a time or two. For me, I think grains are a big part of my problem. Again, best wishes!!!
