When I had SIBO-like symptoms, there weren't any vegetables at all that I could tolerate. A diet that was basically zero-carb/VLC very high and fat was the only thing that stopped the constant diarrhea and gas. I followed this for about a month.... (more)

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.
