I am considering trying it as I had some horrible reactions to cherries and plums lately. I didn't even over do it on eating them. One plum and then like 15 cherries over the course of 2 days - on 3 separate days. I'm back in pain again and I had thought I wasn't dealing with ibs but it looks like its either that or endo.

Have had it forever and it is getting worse as I get older.
Foods not in diet: everything made with flour except a very low carb/calorie organic bread once in a while, all beans, most dairy, everything that comes in a box, no sugars, minimal nuts, potatoes,cereals, cabbage,brocolli, cauliflower, onions, garlic and the list goes on and on.

Meds don't do a thing for the symptoms. I weigh 140 pounds and at 5' 4" and very close to my ideal weight. Trust me... I am too old to be pregnant.... just look like I am pregnant. That is how bloated I am.

I am searching for solutions with no success.

Any ideas?

I was just looking into this too since I am still having issues with bloat and I have been wheat free foe years. I just see this as so hard and restrictive since most of the veggies that I eat are on the list. Might try it this weekend and see how it goes and get rid of the high FODMAP foods that are still in the house.

Make it a great day.

I can't have nuts either. I understand what you mean about fish, chicken and rice. I hate it, but at the same time, I feel so much better than I did.

I might look into it. Right now, I'm dealing with problems with nuts. Nuts are a great way to improve your HDL number, but they don't like me. There are so many foods that don't like me. I'm lactose intolerant. I get sick from even the smallest amount of chicken. I can't handle a large amount of fat in my food. Most fried foods are out of the question although I love them. I don't want to live off rice, fish, vegetables and pork. I need more variety than that, but those foods don't upset my stomach as long as I don't eat too much fat or protein at once.

Looking at the foods on both lists, I guess I eat this way. I can't have gluten (since this past summer) and have to be lactose free. Some of the other foods were triggers for me -- and my doctor told me they were common triggers. Once I eliminated and added citrucel, I feel better than I have in ages.

I am very interested in the low fodmap approach to helping IBS. It just sounds so hard to do. I read you should have a dietician or nutritionist help you do this, but I do not have one in my area. I read the "IBS free at last" book, but have not done the elimination diet. I like you, hate to lose all the fruits and veggies. I am actually going to try going on the Paleo diet first and see how I do. IF i do not get relief then I am going to try low Fodmaps. I wish you the best of luck, I would love to hear how you get along with it.

I'm starting the low FODMAPs diet today, because my IBS-D is out of control. I've been cutting out the gluten for a few weeks, and it's helped a bit, but I think I need to cut even more. Do you have any experience with low FODMAPs- any advice or ideas? Cutting lactose doesn't scare me too much, because there are so many lactose-free products, but I'm really sad to lose the high-FODMAP vegetables and fruits (especially onions and garlic). Hopefully they will pass the challenge phase!
