What High FODMAP Foods Do To Your Gut

A few days ago, we published an article about what a low FODMAP diet can do for those with digestive issues — specifically IBS, but not excluding diverticulitis and other forms of leaky gut. The research in favor of a low FODMAP diet for IBS sufferers is pretty overwhelming. 

The main deterrent for most people is that it seems impossible to live a life without consuming FODMAP foods. They’re not only incredibly common, they’re foods that people are advised to eat when they don’t have inflammatory gut conditions, like IBS, Crohn’s disease, and colitis.

Whole30 and Your Gut Flora

Someone in your office is doing “Whole30” this January, and they’re likely telling everyone about it.

And if you haven’t heard anyone talking about it… then it might be you.

If you haven’t heard of it (and you weren’t listening while your coworker explained it), “Whole30” is a month-long exclusionary diet. For 30 days, you cut out soy, dairy, grains, alcohol, legumes, and added sugars. 

So… probably most of what your regular Western diet consists of. The idea is that after 30 days, a participant would slowly start to introduce food groups back into their diet, so that they can see which foods may have been secretly irritating them or causing discomfort. Sort of like the idea behind the FODMAP diet for those with bowel issues.
