How do different bacteria use different FODMAPs, or FODMAPs ? Do FODMAPs or some FODMAPs increase the numbers of some bacterias more than others ? Can we make a generalization like gram negative bacteria growth is less responsive to FODMAPs, or... (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.
I'm going on a low fodmap diet for my IBS, but I will also be taking part in activities, as well as strength training and walking to classes, so will be quite active. Does anyone have any tips on managing a high caloric intake on a low fodmap... (more)
I shifted over to paleo about 2 and a half months ago. I have: hypothyroidism, leaky gut, gluten intolerance, (possibly sibo as the fodmap diet has been helping) and a few other irritating things that are all directly related to leaky gut. ... (more)
I don't crave veggies or meat, but I eat my share of them. My only craving in the past 6 months has been Almond butter which I gave into again and again. I've finally got it under control and am back to being craveless.
Paleo 60 days... Doing great. Still working on some digestive issues (lifetime issues with gas, bloating and constipation)so digging for more info. Uncover the discussions on fodmaps (what, no avocado??) and night shades (what, no tomatoes?)...... (more)
I'm in a new job that involves a lot of all-day meetings with catered lunches. I'm new to the role and it's a corporate environment so I'm trying to 'fit in'. But I am really sensitive to, well, everything, but especially garlic & onion,... (more)
I fell asleep while listening to a discussion of FODMAPS, so if this sounds weird, blame the dreamworld. Anyway, various folks have said CO2 is good for you. I know I've seen a study somewhere about hydrogen therapy. Butyrate is supposed to be... (more)
I have these really bad rashes on my arms, could eggs be a contributor? Would it make sense if eggs were contributing to increased intestinal permeability and resulting in an autoimmune response in my skin?
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.
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)
Hello everyone :) Obviouslly alot of people go paleo with some kind of health malady, and especially digestive issues. (My personal SIBO story follows at the end) Anyway, Id really like to hear from others: what has worked for you?!!! What... (more)
Here is what I did when I found out I had SIBO about a year ago: supplements: ADP oil of oregano, garlic pill + 1-2 tsp cinnamon daily for 6-8 weeks bone broth every day digestive enzymes + betaine HCL the first 6 months L-glutamine on and off... (more)
Currently I am eating the following: meats (everything except chicken--allergy), bok choy, carrots, chives/green onion (tops only), olive oil, coconut oil, spaghetti squash (I might tolerate this...waiting to see), lettuce, berries (strawberry,... (more)
Informationally, you can make broths with no onions at all -- in fact, with no SEASONINGS at all -- just bones simmered in water. You can season as you can tolerate, but no reason to eschew broths just to avoid onions.
Hi all, thanks to your wisdom, I'm exploring the possibility that my continued/increased dietary discomfort on the paleo diet is related to FODMAPS sensitivity. I went through the archives here, and reviewed a few of the linked articles. I... (more)
Hi hackers, FODMAPS are kind of a double-edged sword. Many people say eliminate them and you will feel better and indeed they can cause a lot of GI trouble. But on the other hand our gut flora needs something to chew on. So under which... (more)
It's pretty unlikely you are sensitive to ALL FODMAPS. Just use the list to design an elimination diet and figure out which are bad, then don't eat them and enjoy everything else. Then later when you are feeling great, you could try titrating them... (more)
I know that avocados contain polyols which are the P in FODMAPs. But I can't figure out if they are bothering me or not (I have digestive distress every day, but notice it more if I eat brassicas. Onions and garlic are totally out.) Do others... (more)
I'll make this good n concise because it's a fait amount of info When I eat carrots, butternut squash, applesauce, sweet potato, parsnips, I have tummy troubles. This also happens with nuts but it is the worst with the above vegetables. When I... (more)
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?
I've been diagnosed with gastroparesis (slow stomach emptying), have an inflamed small intestines, and also suspect I have SIBO. Problem is, I'm so confused as to what dietary guidelines to follow. GAPs and SCD allow some foods that FODMAPs... (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)
My daughter has fructose malabsorption, so cannot eat foods high in fructose. So the FODMAPS foods are out, and she also reacts to coconut flour/meat/milk and sweet potatoes. She's also extremely allergic to eggs. We've been a gluten-free... (more)
How about a kind of porridge made of pureed carrot, butternut squash or pumpkin mixed with nuts (if she tolerate them) and blueberries (without guar gum)? Does she tolerate egg yolks? If yes, you can mix it in the "porridge". =)
Hi friends: I've been juicing cabbage and celery for my nausea/gerd, but now that I'm doing the FODMAP elimination diet, I'm wondering if I can make a juice from cabbage (which is on the "NO" list for FODMAP sensitive folks). It's great for my... (more)
You can either take it out and see if your GERD improves and then reintroduce it later or continue using it to treat your GERD. That's what's tricky about food sensitivities. You never know what's triggering what. That's why people say to take... (more)
I original came across Paleo to help me with my IBS and it did the trick, however, the past several months some of my symptoms have been creeping back. I just read a post from Melissa (Hunt.Gather.Love) that spoke on FODMAPS and others like Kurt... (more)
The past couple of days I have been nauseous, and experiencing diarrhea (I know, I know, ew) and the only thing that was different was that I had taken a muscle relaxer a couple of nights ago. Otherwise, my diet has been normal, though I will... (more)
I am also considering going low-FODMAP (but your sample diet doesn't look all that FODMAP-y) but am playing with decreasing fats & increasing veggies & starches first; too much fat can promote too much GI motility.
I figured FODMAPS are the cause of SIBO, acid reflux and constipation. Am I right to make this generalization or could there be other reasons/causes for the combination of symptoms?
Does it count as a fat? A nut? A fruit? I am confused. I try to avoid lots of fruit (FODMAPs) and nuts/nut butters/seeds, but I stil Eat copious amounts of coconut butter, thinking it is neither. Am I wrong? Also, I understand coconut oil is good... (more)
Coconut butter is ground coconut meat. Various brands contain more or less fat. A coconut is a seed. The juice inside is the endosperm. It slowly consolidates to form the stuff we call the coconut meat.
