I discovered some time ago that I am very sensitive to FODMAPs, especially fructose and fructans. My digestive problems have greatly diminished after adopting a low-FODMAP diet, but some problems still remain and I'm eager to clear this out as... (more)
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.
Hi! 25th year old acne sufferer since age of 17. The first few years I was on antibiotics which helped a bit but the acne returned when course was over. Have been on Accutane twice which improved my skin drastically. Last time I finished my... (more)
Hi guys. I'm trying to set up a paleo-influenced diet plan to follow for a few weeks/months in order to lose fat and build muscle. I'm shooting for 2,800 calories daily, I'm a 6'1" 22yo male, currently weigh around 96kg. I'm not sure my... (more)
Well, not literally. let me describe what happened with me on my paleo diet(and i think im nit the obly one to whol this occured. Well, ive been doing Fitness stuff since quite a while (1 1/2 years) now and through this, i also got in touch... (more)
I used to be realy gassy, bloated and constipated before paleo, but there was a period when it all stopped. With no mayor changes in my diet, the symptoms are back again. I've also gained some weight. I get this uncontrollable hunger sometimes,... (more)
I am ending a whole30 on Sunday and decided to try a FODMAP-free diet for the first week out because I have continued issues with constipation/bloating/gas. I am trying to develop my meal plan for the week using the various resources on here and... (more)
I'm implementing a FODMAP diet plan in an attempt to heal my gut in order to reduce inflammation/acne. I have planned out a FODMAP diet which is supposed to cater to my 4-5 days of intense weightlifting. On normal paleo I was eating about 600G... (more)
A couple years ago, I started college and actually changed my diet when I came into college for the better--unlike typical college students. It wasn't that I ate complete crap beforehand, I ate pretty much regular homecooked food (Chinese), but at... (more)
Book: Digestive Health with REAL Food, by Agla??e Jacob. It seems to be Paleo along with other suggestions for digestive issues, reflux, IBS, FODMAPS etc. I just ordered another book on FODMAP and then of course this one caught my eye,... (more)
I'm going to order it! Aglaee has been a great resource here on PH and I'm sure her book rocks. The reviews on Amazon agree!
My fellow cavemen-and-women... Help out a white collar Grok here. I just started an office job this week, and I'm at work around 9-6++. Now, lunch and dinner are fine, but the morning meal is a problem. My usual breakfast at home is bone broth... (more)
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?
I have self-diagnosed FODMAPs sensitivity (by which I mean, I get very bloated and gross when I eat them and feel better when I don't). I cut out all of them and I'm introducing them a little at a time to see what I react to and what I... (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?
Hi! Just curious if anyone has had any luck with fodmaps and ibs-c. About a week about finally starting taking some strong magnesium supplement that has started to help. Still extremely bloated and looking over fodmaps, I eat a lot of the foods... (more)
OK, I know there are dozens of GERD questions on the site, and a few asthma-related ones as well, but nothing else I've tried has worked, so I figured I'd give this a shot. In June, after about 18 months of eating Paleo, I started experiencing... (more)
Hi All, In short, male 29-years old, had lifelong bloating and digestion issue but nothing major until about 5 years ago when I started getting much worse, likely due to caffeine and pre-workout supplements and years of yo-yo dieting. I started... (more)
I've been looking into FODMAP issues, and I've decided that this may possibly be an indicator for me, and I printed out the chart, but I'd like to get some perspective on how to begin on trying this. My boyfriend is big onion kind of guy, he put... (more)
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.
It's been a roller coaster ride since I started eating paleo back in November of last year. Mostly down. The good part is that I've lost weight. The bad part is that I've had some sort of GI issue since January. I just wrote about this last... (more)
For about a year now, I've had extremely bad pain both 2 weeks before I bleed, the week of my bleeding and for the week around ovulation. This makes for about a week of feeling ok every month. Previous to this, I had reasonably severe PMS but it... (more)
I have never had any gut problems or food intolerances. However, I did adopt a pretty clean paleo diet about a year or so ago. This has really leveled out blood sugar issues with much improved sleep/energy. Problem is, with the onset of cherry... (more)
Hi, So a quick bit of background: Paleo (80%) since May 1st. Going really well, heaps of energy and feeling great but no weight loss. Whole 30 since July 1st. Going ok. Discovered last week that I am FODMAP sensitive. Eliminating certain... (more)
Sounds like you just aren't getting enough total calories. Up your food intake, maybe doing fattier meats in your Big Ass Salad rather than chicken breast. If you are fruit tolerant, try adding a little, as your activity level should be able to... (more)
I`m going to have an experiment and avoid all FODMAP??s to see if my digestion improves. So, I just wonder, what do you guys eat on a regular day? what kind of vegetables, carbs? and so on.
Okay, so i have had digestive issues. I found starches, lactose and sugar seemed to be a problem. So I looked into fodmap, specific carbohydrate, and paleo (hey, here I am). But the more I think about all these limitations, and the ideas, the more... (more)
In this interview, (from 41:29 to 43:36), Dr. Peat suggests a mechanism by which HFCS may be more harmful than sucrose, based on this meeting abstract. Note that these links do not offer much substance to support this theory, though it seems... (more)
I have a history of Celiac and Hoshimotos hypothyroidism and was starting to get symptoms of Sjogren's syndrome so I started the Paleo diet about 6 months ago to try to heal my leaky gut. The Sjogren's symptoms are gone, headaches and fatigue are... (more)
Hi everyone, As the title suggests I have been bloated constantly for a while now and I have no idea what the problem is. I have been eating mostly non fodmaps and gaps approved foods. I have also been supplementing with l-glut, probiotics, multi... (more)
sweet potatoes contain FODMAPs and are not approved on the GAPS diet the sauerkraut can cause problem, I would stop it for a little while to see make sure the amount of vegetables you eat is small if you are still feeling bloated do you use any... (more)
