IBS Triggers that aren’t FODMAP’s

 In #AskADietitian Videos, Feature, Gut Health & IBS

Have you ever wondered why, despite following the low FODMAP diet ‘perfectly’, you still have IBS symptoms?

IBS is a complex condition where the low FODMAP diet can HELP – however I always explain it like a ‘bandaid’ solution – and putting all your eggs in one basket is never a good idea. I review the top 9 IBS triggers I see in my practice that aren’t FODMAP related – and how to fix them!

IBS Triggers That Aren’t FODMAPS

My Top 9 Triggers That Aren’t FODMAP’s

  1. Stress
  2. Eating Quickly
  3. Meal Spacing
  4. Hormones
  5. Sleep
  6. Medications
  7. Spicy Foods
  8. Alcohol
  9. High Fat Foods

I go into detail in the video about each one! Be sure to watch it. (Also – I love that on YouTube, you can choose your ‘speed’. I tend to listen to videos at 1.25 to 1.5 – but if you’re taking notes – regular speed is good too!)
