FODMAPs (Fermentable, Oligo/Di/Monosaccharides and Polyols) are all types of carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed in the small intestine. The low FODMAP diet has been clinically proven to be effective in reducing IBS symptoms.
The Complete Low FODMAP Diet Plan is essential reading for those who have received a formal medical diagnosis and are seeking to alleviate the symptoms of gut discomfort through changes in their diet.
This detailed handbook describes how the low FODMAP diet works, details the FODMAPs to be avoided and explains the three-stage process of elimination, reintroduction and personalisation in a comprehensive diet plan. It demystifies the reintroduction phase of the low FODMAP diet, bringing clarity to a topic where information, knowledge and experience is scarce, and providing the reader with a structured reintroduction protocol to follow. The book also includes 75 tasty, gut-friendly recipes.
Readers who follow the low FODMAP diet closely can experience less bloating and discomfort, a reduction in abdominal pain and other gut-related symptoms, and improved energy levels and mood.
