How to Eat a Low FODMAP Diet

ELIMINATION PHASE

To trial the low FODMAP diet, all high-FODMAP foods need to be eliminated or ‘Rested’ from the diet for at least two weeks, until there has been a significant reduction in symptoms.

Relevant symptoms should be monitored and recorded using my Food & Symptom Diary on a daily basis.

Read What are FODMAPS to get a detailed list of foods in each FODMAP category that should be avoided. Where quantities are given, these foods should be avoided only above the given dose. Many alternative foods can be consumed while following a low FODMAP diet, which I have listed below.
