We’ve talked about FODMAPs several times here, but I have the feeling at least a few people out there still aren’t entirely sure just what they are. To help, my colleagues and I at The Experiment put together an infographic that I hope you’ll read (click on the image to view in full size) and share!
I know this is advertorial of me, since I edited the low-FODMAP books, but I truly believe the low-FODMAP diet is a game-changer for people with long-term, otherwise unexplained digestive problems. And it’s not just me who believes it—scientists, doctors, and dietitians worldwide support the diet.
Of course, folks should get tested for celiac disease and other gastrointestinal diseases before accepting a diagnosis of IBS and trying this diet. And of course, we should continue working to figure out why exactly people have these chronic gut issues and how to solve the problem for good, but in the meantime, this regimen might help.
Along with the infographic (design credit for which, by the way, really goes entirely to Sarah Schneider, who I think did a great job, don’t you?), I’m doing a giveaway of Sue Shepherd’s brand-new book, The Low-FODMAP Diet Cookbook, to help spread the word. It has recipes for every meal and everyone, and as someone who has spent many a pre-lunch hour drooling over the photos, I can tell you they’re gorgeous. Enter using the Rafflecopter below, and good luck!
