I want to start the low fodmap as Ive heard so many good things but Im vegan and have been for 2 years. Im under weight so starting the low fodmap diet would not help with the weight loss as its very restrictive. Would starting to eat meat/lactose/eggs cause havoc for me? I will introduce them all slowly but its just most gluten free products contain egg etc. ANY advice would be highly appreciated! TIA x

   Just to remind you, human beings have been living on earth for 100's of thousands of years, if not millions of years.  If you do not eat any animal protein, that is a radical change in diet from all your ancestors.  Virtually all of them ate animal protein.  By eating vegan you have chosen a radical diet.  I'm not saying one can't be healthy with that diet, but just realize that avoiding animal products is a fairly radical diet choice.  If you are not well avoiding animal foods, you most certainly should begin to include them in your diet.  There have been many ex-vegetarians/vegans who have made their condition worse by avoiding animal - based foods.
