FODMAP Diet Plan (With Printable Food List)

FODMAP Diet Plan

Some individuals develop intestinal problems after ingesting certain foods.

The foods that mostly cause intestinal issues such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) are short-chain carbohydrates or sugars referred to as a FODMAP diet.

FODMAP, which stands for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols, are types of foods absorbed poorly by the small intestines.

The most common symptoms some people experience after a FODMAP diet include diarrhea, constipation, cramping, gas, flatulence, and bloating.

One of the best remedies to combat IBS or SIBO is eating a low FODMAP diet.

FODMAP Diet Plan – What is a Low FODMAP Diet?

Determining the foods causing your ingestion issues is challenging, but you can start with a low carbohydrate sugar diet (low FODMAP diet).

A low FODMAP diet is a restrictive eating plan that you follow for a short time until you no longer have intestinal problems.

It is important to note that the diet eliminates many food types from your diet, so you should talk to a physician before getting into the program.

A Low FODMAP diet follows a three-elimination process.

  • First, you stop eating high FODMAP foods.
  • Next, you slowly introduce them to your diet plan to determine the ones causing intestinal problems.
  • Once you identify the foods causing the problems, you can avoid or limit them while enjoying everything else without any worries.

Low FODMAP Diet Plan

According to John Hopkins Wellness and Health, you should not exceed two to three weeks with the food elimination diet.

Every three days after starting the low FODMAP diet, you can gradually reintroduce high FODMAP meals into your diet.

That means you add one high FODMAP meal at a time, determine if it causes s any symptoms, and if it does, limit it for the long term.

If you want to keep better track of the foods causing you IBS or SIBO, use a food and symptom diary to note every food and its effects. Here are a few things you should note before drawing up your diet plan.

  • Shopping

Check the ingredients of all the food items when you go shopping. Leave behind any foods with ingredients that contain high FODMAP (check our list of the foods to avoid below).

  • After shopping

You may need to get rid of all the old food items in your pantry or fridge that contain all the ingredients causing you problems.

Restock with your new low FODMAP food items. Work out your diet plan in advance to ease the process.
