The FODMAP diet is a successful diet that can help you to allieviate IBS symptoms. It has been researched and developed by Monash University led by Professor Peter Gibson. The diet is gaining popularity as more and more people are finding that the diet is a big help in reducing their IBS symptoms and allowing people to live their lives and not be chained to their toilets or be in constant pain.
About the Low FODMAP Diet
The FODMAP guide is a good place to start learning about the diet. For a more detailed look at what FODMAPs really are go to the What Are FODMAPs? page. After getting to know the gist of the diet it is helpful to go to the FODMAP Food List and study the list and figuring out which foods you will have to be wary of and which you may have to substitute when cooking. You can view some helpful FODMAP friendly recipes at the recipe page.
