FODMAP Diet – A Way to Cope with IBS



Welcome to my site, I hope the information found within is of help to people suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I myself am a long term sufferer (coming up to 20 years) and have learnt many things over the years on how to deal with IBS but the biggest contributor was the FODMAP diet. I was introduced to the diet by my dietitian and have found a vast improvement to my symptoms as a result. Below gives a quick overview of the diet and please browse the rest of the site for detailed information. I try to keep the FODMAP food list as accurate as possible. With the continued research and food testing the list receives additions and alterations as time goes on. Please be sure to consult your doctor / gastroenterologist / dietitian on anything you aren’t sure about.

Recent research has shown that certain carbohydrates can contribute to symptoms of IBS sufferers and these carbs are:

Fermentable, Oligo-saccharides, Di-saccharides, Mono-saccharides and Polyols
