I feel so much bet­ter...

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURES -

Many peo­ple be­gin to feel marked im­prove­ments once they’ve elim­i­nated FODMAP foods, but it’s re­ally im­por­tant not to stop there. Foods must be rein­tro­duced, un­der guid­ance, to iden­tify the cul­prits, and en­sure you’re fol­low­ing a healthy, bal­anced diet that doesn’t elim­i­nate any foods, or whole food groups, un­nec­es­sar­ily.

The rein­tro­duc­tion of each food is done over a three-day process. So you might be OK with a small amount of cooked onion in a soup, for ex­am­ple, but eat­ing lots of raw onion may bring on symp­toms. Af­ter pin­point­ing the foods that up­set you, you can then fol­low a less strin­gent FODMAP-aware diet, and just re­strict the known cul­prits.
