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.

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 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?

Renee_2 0 · November 24, 2012 at 8:53 PM

I would disagree with that generalization. The main thing with FODMAPs is that they cause gas, not the symptoms you describe.

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.

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.

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.

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.
