Fodmap diet should be done with a dietician/nutritionist, but most insurances don't cover them. I would start with this free download of ANOTHER diet "Eating for IBS" (even though book more thoroughly explains the "whys"), eliminating foods already known to be problematic, then introduce one at a time every 3 days. That way, you will learn about how it's not just what you eat, but "how and why."


Couple it with proper meds and otc supplements and 8-10C/day of water, good sleep and thus less stress, and I improved, ALOT.laugh.png

1/04/18: Pain's my main problem. IBS-D prone, but not with methylcellulose soluble non-gassy caplets still, 2 before anything eaten.  Also, 10C water/day (Have to if taking fiber supplement and soluble foods). Frequent, small and well chewed meals. No more salads, seeds or peel, whole grains, raw vegetables STILL. Have used in the past antispasmotics, low dose tricyclic anti-depressent (for ibs and inflammation)/both VERY drying even at low amounts and disorienting, CBD oil and IBgard's encapsulated peppermint (works better than older type enteric peppermint). Have occasional inflammation in illium at end of small intestine, but it was not crohns. Activated charcoal when needed for flatulence, simethicone only works on upper stomach area for upper gas (burping) right away btw, not flatulence at end of g.i. track. Tried Kratom, good but itchy and didn't prevent a flare up from eating a wrong foods. Raising dosage didn't kick down inflammation. Now back to being certified for (legally available here) medical high CBD Cannabis/Marijuana RSO (thick oil form), more expensive. I needed more anti-inflammitory help from the THC in regular cannabis oil, instead of just CBD oil.

Hi, I have just registered for Heather's IBS cheat sheet and was disapointed to see that it does not follow the FODMAP diet. In fact some of the foods listed as safe are most definatley NOT Fodmap friendly.

Janet Elaine, I would suggest checking the Monash University Low Fodmap page: http://www.med.monas.../gastro/fodmap/ and blog: http://fodmapmonash.blogspot.com/ . There is a lot of contradicting information out there. Everyone is going to be able to eat slightly different foods from the next person.


My doctor gave me this handout: https://stanfordheal...wfodmapdiet.pdf. By following it and discerning which foods on the list I personally could not tolerate or which foods were now deemed "unsafe" by current research, it worked out pretty good for me. There are several things I learned on the Low Fodmap diet, but one of the most essential things to know is that even "safe" Low Fodmap foods can cause issues if not eaten in moderation. 


When in doubt, Monash University is the best place to look for current information.


Best of luck! :-)
