There’s a specific group of foods called FODMAPs (Fermented Oligosaccharides Disaccharides Monosaccharides And Polyols) that are a group of carbohydrates found in everyday foods.

According to the Canadian Digestive Health Foundation, “While some people are able to consume FODMAPs without experiencing gastrointestinal side effects, many people with

digestive disorders, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), find that FODMAPs triggers symptoms including abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, excess gas, constipation and/or diarrhea.”

FODMAPs are fermented by your gut bacteria when they aren’t digested properly and this can cause a bacteria overgrowth, which causes the above list of symptoms.

We understand that the list seems extremely daunting… I mean you can’t just cut all of these things out of your diet in one go! The best way to find out which FODMAPs are affecting you is to play a little game of trial and error… or an elimination game.

Eliminate all of these FODMAPs from your diet for at least 2 weeks and then add them back to your diet 1 by 1. Wait 1 week each time you add another FODMAP into your diet and eventually, you’ll be able to tell which FODMAPS are making you sick!
