so many people have gut issues...
1 in 5 people have irritable bowel syndrome. 1 in 2 people suffer from some form of gut symptom.
IBS can be caused by a range of factors and everyone is different...
maybe it's fodmaps?
FODMAPs are carbohydrates that are found in a range of foods, such as dates, honey, onion, garlic and wheat. We know, these things are all healthy, but unfortunately they aren't digested well by everyone. More below....Fodbods have been certified low FODMAP, which means that they're safe to eat if you have gut issues – no tummy aches or bloating. Yay!
What are these gut issues you speak of?
IBS is very common - although many people live with symptoms for years, not realising that what they're feeling isn't normal. FODMAPs aren't the only cause of IBS (obviously things like coffee, chilli, alcohol can wreak havoc) but they are the culprit for 75% of sufferers.
If any of these sounds like you, maybe FODMAPs aren't your friend....

THE FODMAP DIET
Most dietitians will recommend the FODMAP diet to manage IBS symptoms.
The FODMAP diet was developed by the very smart people at Monash University. It's the best proven way to manage the symptoms of IBS and helps 75% of sufferers.
The low FODMAP diet involves identifying which FODMAPs trigger your symptoms and eliminating those from your diet. It does NOT mean cutting out all FODMAPs forever - that would be a sad way to live but it would also be bad for your health.
If you've been recommended to try the FODMAP diet, we highly recommend downloading the Monash FODMAP app. You can toggle your individual intolerances in the settings so that it filters foods that are safe [green light) or unsafe (red light) for YOU!
