What if you had all the information you needed for the diet in one place, with tips and guidance from registered dietitians?

Maybe you were just diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and your physician recommended the low-FODMAP diet. Or maybe a friend or family member found relief through the diet and told you about it. However way you landed here today, I bet you feel pretty overwhelmed.

I'm glad you're here.

When I started the diet in 2013 I felt just the same way you do. I had so much to learn and I felt pretty overwhelmed.

Back then, resources for the diet were scant and no certified low-FODMAP food products existed. I carefully read the lists for low and high-FODMAP foods. I made most everything from scratch and I meal prepped. I left extra time at the grocery store to read food labels. All the hard work paid off because within just a couple of days I started to find relief.

Maybe you've been asking yourself:

  • What are FODMAPs and what do they stand for?
  • How do I spot FODMAPs on food labels?
  • How do I start the Elimination Phase and what exactly do I do?
  • Do I have to be gluten-free?
  • How do I go food shopping?
  • How do I use apps for the diet?
  • How can I find delicious and quick recipes?
  • How long does the diet last for?
  • What if I make a mistake on the diet?
  • How do I go about my everyday life and do the diet? Can I go to parties or events?
  • What do I do for abdominal pain, gas and bloating?
  • Why do I even have IBS?

It's been six years now and I've been on a Modified low-FODMAP diet, with little to no symptoms (remember no cure for IBS exists presently). I don't have to worry about going out in public, to an event or on a long trip. The Elimination Phase and Challenge Phase gave me the tools and CONFIDENCE I needed. I learned which FODMAPs I personally could or could not handle. It was so exhilarating to pack away all my "IBS clothes." It was freeing to be able to go for a run without a huge bowling ball of gas trapped inside my gut. I started to sleep better and my mood improved as well.

When starting out on the low-FODMAP diet, there are so many questions and so much to learn. The best guidance you can receive is from a FODMAP-trained dietitian, and especially one with a focus in gut health. "Googling" will only make the whole process longer for you. You'll be more prone to following incorrect or outdated information. Maybe you'll get the hang of eating only low-FODMAP foods, but without the right guidance, you may also end up eating a diet devoid of a wide variety of nutrients. For example, getting enough calcium and the right amount of fiber can be an issue if you don't know what you're doing.
