Hi Everyone.I networked with my son and together we came up with a single page printable FODMAP diet chart.It's colorful and easy to follow.Feel free to copy and or distribute it.If it's use helps anyone reduce their suffering then I'm more than greatful.We've needed to update the chart (15 Jul 2011).Artichokes & Pistachio nuts both contain Fructans and therefore unsuitable.

Excellent result T.For years sufferers have tried many treatments without result.Distrusting of cures, to many, the FODMAP diet might appear as just another fad solution.Quite a few might find that sticking to this diet will pleasantly surprise them.I'm not sure about Collards, but Endive, Spinach & Silver Beat are all FODMAP free.Eating them with a stable gut should present no problems.An unstable gut, overloaded with FODMAP, is already compromised and is easily overwhelmed with any food one might consume. Tomatoes are acceptable however the seeds, which are very acid, can affect some.When preparing a tomato sauce, I like to sieve out the seeds.
Thank you, I look forward to seeing the attachment. The FODMAP concept has saved me from daily pain and discomfort For the past 5-6 weeks I have been living on a diet of those foods that leave me unscathed and adding one at a time, and that's working well. I am so unused to being free from gas and distension its still a daily celebration. But I sure would like to see a few FODMAP food lists that have a core of agreement. I am also very lactose intolerant.Here's an interesting bit that may be related: the muscle cramps that have limited my ability to exercise are gone. I have been athletic all my life, competing in a number of sports and when these IBS issues became serious, about seven years ago, I was also plagued with muscle cramps that not only woke me in the middle of the night, but would also seize up and not allow me to do abdominal crunches or anything that flexed the calves or arches. The muscle cramps disappeared suddenly when I began to eliminate FODMAPS. I think the osmosis of fluids to the gut had been disrupting the fluids and electrolytes in the muscles.
You'll find that early FODMAP lists were limited by the resource of those assigned to analyze foods.With time further research has allowed more to be categorized and to correct errors.Unfortunately many haven't kept their lists up to date.The attached chart has had a dozen recent changes and reflects foods listed by a large Public Hospital in my area.
but I have been a little frustrated by the variations in the available lists. Some say tomatoes and collards are safe, others say don't go near them, and so forth, leaving me to wonder if I have to develop my own list from trial and error.
