After my latest colonoscopy, my doctor handed me a sheet of paper on the low-FODMAP diet, and said I should try this diet. I searched the internet and discovered it is a plan to manage IBS, and other digestive disorders.
It for sure is a real change of lifestyle, one in which I am having to ease into slowly. It is gluten free, lactose free and only allows certain fruits and vegetables, and proteins.
I looked for a team here at Spark for this plan, but none were found. I was able to purchase, "The Complete Low-FODMAP diet" book written by Sue Shepherd and Peter Gibson, just trying to read now, it does make sense, and I am going to start this plan after the first of the year for sure.
At this time I am just looking for something to ease the occurrence of episodes which trigger my ulcerative colitis, not so much a weight loss plan. However, that would be an added blessing.
Has anyone tried this diet?
