  1. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi, I am new to low FODMAP and heading to New York city in two weeks. Because I just started, I am not sure of what specific things I can tolerate. I'm very nervous about finding places to eat in nyc and not having any problems there. Has anyone been to New York city or lives there and has...

    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...

    Hello everyone. My name is Lilah, I'm 21 from England and was recently diagnosed with IBS. I'm not sure when I first noticed my symptoms, but as far as I can recall I was around 16-17 years old. I used to get diarrhoea after everything I ate, but it slowly turned into being essentially...

    Is everything on that chart with the green light edible by IBSers? Or do we need to cross-check all of that to see if they're gluten free as well? Also, when they say 1/2 cup etc, is that per meal or per day? That being said, I got these from the Monash University app and was wondering if...
  6. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Does anybody have a good chart for this? A lot of websites, especially ibsdiets' wesbite has listed Broccoli, Karela and other stuff there as low-fodmap, but that seems to aggravate ibs symptoms. I have C, but this question is for all the people who go through symptoms on a weekly basis...

    Hi all, I've just signed up to this forum to find others who are managing their IBS symptoms through a low-FODMAP diet. It is not an easy diet to implement and I am having lots of slip-ups which set off my symptoms again, but in general I felt incredibly well from the first day. My story in...
  8. Welcome!
    I've been suffering from symptoms of IBS for three years. For a long time I thought it was lactose intolerance; symptoms decreased after cutting out dairy but didn't disappear. I had occasional diarrhea and gas as well as bowel movements several times a day but these symptoms were usually...

    Hey, I was recently diagnosed with IBS-D and am taking various medications and attempting the low FODMAP diet. As long as I stick to low fodmaps and take my medication religiously my symptoms are bearable. However, I am also a long distance runner and have been having trouble finding a post...

    I suffer from IBS and have been on the Low FODMAP diet. I've been making my own stocks/broth but it's time-consuming. I haven't been able to find an onion and garlic free stock at the grocery store (in Canada) or that ships locally or from the US. So I thought, how cool would it be if I create...

    I am reintroducing apples slowly over the next three weeks. What luck have you had with this? Any tips? Would anyone currently following low fodmap who is ready to try apples want to join in on this journey with me? I would love to be able to talk about how it goes together! I am currently...

    Hi all! I really want to make the world a better place for us people who suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome and give back the day-to-day quality of life that we so badly need (and deserve!). Could you maybe help upping the numbers of people who fill out the IBS questionnaire I've made? It...

    Dear fellow IBS sufferers! In a bid to make the world a better place for us IBS sufferers, I am really keen to make a change for people who suffer from IBS, including myself. It is a tough journey and that's why I have created my IBS questionnaire which I would like some feedback on, if you...

    Does anyone who follows the low FODMAP diet know if drinking something like 1 ounce of apple/(or any "high fodmap" fruit) juice a day is ok? It is a long story why I ask, but it is in a seaweed supplement I drink, but I'm hoping since it is only 1 ounce it may not matter too much? thanks!

    Hello Everyone! I'm sorry if this question has been asked, but i'm curious to know... What is the hardest thing for you to live with on a Low FODMAP Diet? Don't get me wrong I'm happy on the diet as it makes me feel so much better, but I think for me it would have to be eating out with my...

    Hi there! I just wanted to share with you my personal experience with the low FODMAP diet, having also food intolerances. This diet has helped me manage IBS symptoms almost completely but I must say that it is not the same for everybody... There are some trigger foods for me that are low...

    Hi all, I've done a lot of my own researching about sugars and their effects and I'm not coming up with much. Obviously I understand man-made sugars aren't digestible and/ or aren't easy to pass. Why I'm here probably has a lot to do with those ;). Anyhow, my question is, is it possible to...

    This is a good recipe for those struggling with a wheat-free diet. It's quite tasty and filling and the addition of almond meal gives it more of a grainy texture. NB: The coconut flour and almond meal are both very high in fibre however low FODMAP as far as I know. The cake mixture doesn't rise...

    Hey everyone, I've got a few questions about the low FODMAP diet I'm hoping someone can answer. 1) Fennel is on the don't-eat list because it's a fructan, but it's marketed as being great for IBS because it reduces bloating and gas. What are your experiences? 2) Soy is a legume, but soy milk...
