I finally interviewed Dana Lis yesterday (the inspiration for the latest lpc series on GF/low-FODMAP diets) and she told me about the: Monash FODMAP app and online resources: http://www.med.monash.edu/cecs/gastro/fodmap/low-high.html Everyone who has or suspects gut issues/food sensitivities needs this! A lot of online resources that list out FODMAP foods are inconsistent, but Dana informed be that Monash is the gold standard and they actually measure FODMAP amounts in foods. Check it out, give it a try, and LMK what you think!

A different perspective (aka trolling you softly): We’re increasingly discussing the downsides of long-term dietary restrictions in our clients. This is particularly relevant to those eating some kind of autoimmune diet (i.e. AIP or lectin avoidance) or a low FODMAP diet to manage a chronic disease or gastrointestinal symptoms. These diets are fantastic tools to use whilst fixing your (gut) health, but they are not always necessary for the long-term. The longer you restrict certain foods, the harder it is to reintroduce them later on. Though it does take some time and skill to get it right, sometimes the best way to fix a FODMAP intolerance is to eat a lot of FODMAPs.

Just downloaded! Thanks for this. My naturopath just recommended FODMAPS for me for a few months.
