What Is Included in Each Box?
The low FODMAP diet is based on the belief that your symptoms are being caused by an undiagnosed food sensitivity. The diet is designed to eliminate the foods most commonly associated with IBS symptoms (lactose and fructose) to clear out the offenders and then slowly reintroduce them to detemine exacrtly which foods are causing problems. Finally, you’ll be able to live a symptom-free life, never again wondering, “what did I eat this time??” while suffering and sweating on the toilet.
Foods that are “high FODMAP” contain of short-chain carbohydrates (such as fructose and lactose), which are the sneaky little devils that are responsible for so much of your suffering.
After those high FODMAP foods are out of your system, you can then reintroduce those foods with the help of a dietitian or doctor and determine which one(s) are causing your symptoms!
Does it work?
You'll be most likely to see the benefits of the low FODMAP diet if your doctor or dietitian has recommended it to you or diagnosed you with IBS.
Studies have shown that 3 out of 4 patients who commit to the low FODMAP diet find long term relief from their IBS symptoms.
Do I have to stick to the diet forever?
No! The low fodmap diet is meant to “reset” your gut and cleanse out all types of carbohydrates that are likely causing your symptoms. Once you find that your IBS symptoms have been eliminated- usually after sticking to the diet for around 2-8 weeks.
The diet isn’t indefinite. It’s job is finished once you’ve identified only those foods that bring on symptoms. Then you can go back to your normal eating habits (just without the newfound offenders, of course).
