What the FODMAP? In an effort to see if I can eliminate all symptoms of IBS, I am attempting the FODMAP elimination diet and challenge as outlined by Patsy Catsos in her book, IBS-Free at Last and on her blog ibsfree.net. Today is day 1 of my elimination diet. Since I don’t like to eat a lot of simple carbs and since I already know that wheat is a major problem for me, I’m trying to focus mostly on allowed vegetables and fruits and trying not to load up on carbs and fats.
I’m taking this to a potluck tonight.
