Do you need a meal plan with low fodmap recipes? Here’s a free low fodmap diet plan for one whole week! I’ve recently read a lot about the low fodmap diet and what great benefits it has for people who suffer from digestive illnesses, such as IBS, so I decided to create a low fodmap meal plan for people with these specific dietary needs.
In case you are not familiar with what a FODMAP diet really is, check out the brief description below.
What is FODMAPs?
FODMAP is an acronym and comes from:
F = Fermentable = This refers to fermentable carbohydrates which are fermented in the gut instead of broken down by digestive enzymes. These may cause bloating and poor digestion.
O = Oligosaccharides = These are short-chain carbohydrates. They include fructans and galactans.
D = Disaccharides = These is a pair of sugar molecules. The milk sugar lactose causes the most problems.
M = Monosaccharides = This is a single sugar molecule. Free fructose is problematic.
A = and
P = Polyols = These include alcohols (xylitol, sorbitol, maltitol)
Leaving the science talk aside, you can check out this list with low fodmap foods, just so you can get an idea.
A few facts about the low fodmap diet
- The low fodmap diet plan is recommended as a treatment for IBS, although it is not limited to it.
- The low fodmap diet stimulates the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut.
- The low fodmap diet is not a lifetime diet and professional guidance is recommended.
You’ll see that this low fodmap diet is very restrictive. There are so many good fruits and veggies that have to be omitted. That is why this diet is only recommended to people who suffer from IBS or other intestinal disorders, and to whom their doctor recommended this diet.
