The low FODMAP diet is the first evidenced-based research shown to help patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). This is a temporary diet that restricts short-chained carbohydrates called FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligo-saccharides, Discaccharides, Mono-saccharides, and Polyols. FODMAPs are “fast food” for bacteria and contribute to gas, bloating, and discomfort in individuals with IBS and certain other gastrointestinal conditions.
As a FODMAPs knowledgeable dietitian, I am accepting clients that would like to try this approach to manage IBS symptoms.
I am fortunate to be able to work with Kate Scarlata, RD, who is an expert in the low FODMAP diet. You can find a wealth of information on her blog.
