For those of you who do not do well with FODMAPs, what is your usual reaction time? Can you tell within like an hour, a day, 36 hours? Does it vary?

Thank you for your responses. I get confused because I can feel fine and then pain and discomfort start pretty quickly after I eat a meal and usually are the worst about an hour after I eat. It makes me think that meal caused the issues.

Beef jerky and eggs are relatively cheap options for protein. Are you ok with plantains (or do you react to those as you do bananas?)

Is there a refidgerator in the office? Keep nautral (Paelo OK) cold cuts in the fridge, they are easy to grab, you can even make pinwheels out of turkey and Roast beef, etc. If you don't - what about beef jerkey?

Hmm, I doubt that eating something with FODMAPS yesterday would make you hungrier today. Is it possible you ate less yesterday because you were bloated and full-feeling, so today your body is just trying to compensate for the shortage?

You don't have to avoid that onion flavor. FODMAPs are not oil-soluble, so just steep onions or garlic in bottles of olive oil, and use the oil when you cook. You get the flavor without the FODMAPs.
