How To Start On The Low FODMAP Diet

How to start on the low FODMAP diet

So you’ve been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and have been told to start on the low FODMAP diet?

While most people are well-meaning (often in their desire to understand and relate) their questions can put you on edge. Make you feel judged, singled out, and unheard. As someone who counsels patients, it’s not the diet changes (though hard!) that are the most...

Fodmapped For You Fodmap Friendly Certified Product Review

FODMAPPED for you | FODMAP Friendly Certified Product Review

I am SO excited to have had the opportunity to try FODMAPPED for you's AMAZING products. Time and time again, my clients find the biggest struggle with staying low FODMAP is sauces, and condiments. People get tired of 'bland' food -not that low FODMAP has to be bland, per-say - but the sheer amount of foods you have to remove often make it seem like you have very few options. FODMAPPED for you, alongside FODMAP Friendly kindly sent me the whole array of their products to try out, so that I could share my thoughts with you. I don't know about you, but sometimes speciality products can be a bit underwhelming. This was NOT the case with FODMAPPED. They achieved AMAZING flavour with no onion, no...
