Today, I thought I would gather some of my top resources for those new to following the low FODMAP diet and for the dietitians in the field that are starting to utilize this elimination diet with their patients.
FODMAP grocery list: This one page handout will make grocery shopping a bit easier when you are starting out!
How to make a Balanced Low FODMAP menu:  This simple {super cute} one page handout reminds the FODMAPer to eat healthy and well-balanced.
Low FODMAP Cooking with Kate Scarlata: This $10 downloadable e-booklet provides numerous (47, to be exact) tasty recipes for the FODMAPer. Healthy Free Weight Loss Meal Plans – Some people try to lose weight without considering their health. Most of the menus in 1200 calories free weight loss meal plans contain non-sugared beverage, whole wheat, vegetables, fruit, yoghurt, cheese, and low fat and high protein food. Their studies of different patient groups (Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Disease, celiac disease, fructose malabsorption, patients who underwent colectomy, etc) showed that reduction of the intake of FODMAPs may help to reduce symptoms, depending on other things these people usually eat. This means that you may eat some of the problem foods listed in the tables and still fill fine. And here are two more tables with foods already listed above, just to show why they are problematic for FODMAP-sensitive people.
Note that some of the foods listed as intestine friendly may be less friendly for some people inducing functional gut symptoms. Since starting to watch out for FODMAP foods, I found out that these foods affect me in different ways. I would like to use one of these charts in my research paper for my biology class but I need to be able to site it properly. This chart is from Moshfegh et al, Presence of Inulin and Oligofructose in the Diets of Americans J. As to whether aspartame safe during pregnancy is still a problem with information I have yet to digest as there are so many conflicting information on the web.
Our long island weight loss program have showed this diagram to us and I must say, it's a great guide to staying fit and healthy.
When I'm buying food products, I always make it a point to check its nutritional facts. That is the reason why I always make it a point to read first the product label before buying it. Once it happens, I just a generic anti-motility at the drugstore and go for a basic porridge to sustain me through the day.
There are several layers to this and, frankly, there are some things we can’t fully explain – I’ll always acknowledge this.
Take a look again at the figure below, which shows you how many calories folks are consuming on each diet and, more importantly, where those calories come from. You’ll note that people on these diets, including the strictest low-fat high-carb diets, significantly reduce their total amount of carbohydrates (therefore reducing the amount of insulin they secrete).
The reason, I believe, most of these diets have some efficacy – at least in the short-term – is that they all reduce sugar and highly refined carbohydrate intake, either explicitly or implicitly.
Someone made a great point in response to my post on why fruits and vegetables are not actually necessary for good health. I know a lot of people who eat this way and, I’ve got to say, these folks do not eat a lot of sugar or a lot of highly refined carbohydrates. While I do plan to write an entire post on this topic of what one can and cannot conclude from an experiment, I do want to at least make the point here: The biggest single problem with nutrition “science” is that cause and effect are rarely linked correctly. I am, to be clear, not implying this is the case for this trial, but I want you to understand why it’s important to read papers fully. This trial, The Lifestyle Heart Trial, prospectively randomized a group of not-so-healthy patients into two treatment groups: the control group and the experimental group (or what we’d call the “treatment” or “intervention” group).
First off, and perhaps most importantly from the standpoint of drawing conclusions, compliance was reported to be excellent and the differences between the groups were statistically significant on every metric, except total average caloric intake.
Take a moment to look over the rest of the table (or just skip reading it since I’m going to keep talking about it anyway).
Though not shown in this table, the experimental group also reported less chest pain severity (though chest pain frequency and duration were not statistically different).
Let’s take a leap of faith and hypothesize that the dietary intervention (rather than, say, the social support) had the greatest impact on the measured parameters in the subjects.  It’s certainly the most likely factor in my mind.  But what, exactly, can I conclude? People don’t like to be hungry, and if they are reducing their caloric intake by reducing fat intake, they seldom find themselves satiated.
Semi-starvation reduces basal metabolic rate, so your body actually adjusts to the “new” norm and slows down its rate of mobilizing internal fat stores. I argue that reduction of fat intake has nothing to do with it and that the reduction of total calories has a transient effect. It’s *really* tough to study this stuff properly, especially compared to studying things blood pressure lowering pills, which are complex in their own right, but MUCH easier to control in a study. A nutrition department of a university accepts funds from a company that makes confectionery.
Do you think the Academy’s supporters want to hear that if you eliminate their products you will no longer need to rely on the products provided by the biggest supporters of the Diabetic Association? Pretty much solely because of their report, Suzuki was forced to eventually withdraw the Samurai from production in the US although they later won the lawsuit that was filed as a result of the forged report by showing videos from the actual testing of the car conducted by CR.
Ironically, the fact that CR had to admit it was faked somehow wasn’t plastered all over their magazines and the front pages of a bunch of newspapers. At that point, everything they publish became suspect and may as well line a birdcage somewhere. Peter, I have a coworker who has recently lost 80lbs over the course of a year on weight watchers.
Looking forward to your next post, and of course people's comments for the current one! I will discuss all of this in great detail, hopefully in the coming month, when I do a post on PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acids).
Anyway, it’s nice to discover someone who takes the Taubes viewpoint on things, and also takes the time to actually post online about it with some frequency, so thanks!


Oh absolutely, I was mostly referring to the fact that most of the excess carbs we eat are converted to palmitic acid, which is a SFA.
There was an (1) average protein, low fat group (65% CHO), (2) High protein, low fat group , (3) Average protein, high fat, and (4) high protein, high fat (35% CHO).
Thanks very much, Bob, both for the kind comments and for sharing the other data with folks. This section provides all sorts of references for you to use while you are beginning your journey on the low FODMAP diet. But there are SO many other helpful resources in this section for dietitians or individuals that want to learn more about the low FODMAP diet. Just hover over the FODMAP Basics tab to find great information that will help you navigate the low FODMAP diet. Probiotic supplements WITH chicory root or inulin would be a potential issue not probiotics in general.
Thanks Kate, So foods from the fruit group and sweeteners that are “safe” should be limited to 1 serving per meal or sitting? Fruits should be limited to one serving per sitting or meal OR spaced out at least 2-3 hours.
Samantha, Yes soy lecithin should not be an issue on the low FODMAP diet to the best of my knowledge. I also had a couple of strawberries today that upset my stomach but I think they were overripe. Ten percent of the sale of this booklet goes directly to Monash University FODMAP researchers to fund further FODMAP food analysis and research.
These 10 newly designed (13 in all) low FODMAP teaching tool handouts are ready to roll for use in your GI nutrition practice.
It's not about the foods eaten in isolation, it's about hundreds of food components that are adding up. Inulins - often included in prebiotic supplements - are longer chain fructans thus are expected to be more intestine-friendlier than fructans with low degree of polymerization. Some deem maintaining a diet as a hassle so they take other procedures like colon hydrotherapy south melbourne. Your food intake directly affects your health, moreso in the abuse of certain food types within FODMAP. I want to give a list of food that my mother can try because she is bored with meals that she cooks for herself.
I've been doing a research now about artificial sweeteners like aspartame because, my wife is an expectant mother. Everyone needs body movements that can help proper circulation of blood flow, breathing and proper waste movement.
My doctor said there's something wrong with my diet, so he referred me to a nutritionist.
That said, many of the successes (at least weight-wise, though hopefully by now you realize there is much more to health than just body composition) of popular diets can be explained by a few simple observations.
You can argue that those who are overweight probably consume an even greater amount of carbohydrates.
Even the Ornish diet, which is the most restrictive diet with respect to fat and most liberal with respect to carbohydrates, still reduces carbohydrate intake by about 40% from what people were likely eating pre-diet. No one on the Ornish Diet or Jenny Craig Diet is eating candy bars and potato chips, at least not if they are adhering to it.
The point was, essentially, that telling people to eat 5-6 servings per day of fruits and vegetables can hopefully drive a beneficial substitution effect. I have no intention of engaging in a battle with proponents of plant-based eating or no-saturated-fat diets. Stated another way, it’s one thing to observe an outcome, but it’s quite another to conclude the actual cause of that outcome. In other words, for every intended difference between the groups a difference existed, except that on average they ate the same number of calories (though obviously from very different sources), which was not intended to be different as both groups were permitted to eat ad libitum – meaning as much as they wanted.
Ornish’s study?  I think the reduction in sugar and simple carbohydrates played the largest single role in the improvements experienced by the experimental group, but I can’t prove it from this study any more than one can prove a low-fat vegetarian diet is the “best” diet.  We can only conclude that it’s better than eating Twinkies and potato chips which, admittedly, is a good thing to know. And, the majority of the benefit folks receive comes from the reduction of sugars and highly refined carbohydrates. Case in point…they recently reported that olive oil is not good for you because it does not contain omega 6. 3, has a good point about some plans (including WW) having the advantage of group support, which I think is a very major confounder. It is wonderful to watch these people glow once they have found some sort of solution to their weight problem. One of my favorite things to say to people who are scared of saturated fat is that even on an entirely plant based diet, (ala Ornish Diet), if they are restricting their caloric intake, their bodies will be running on the saturated (animal) fat that they have stored on themselves. For example the degree of unsaturated fatty acids in our membrane bilayer probably plays a role in our insulin sensitivity, just as one example. But most importantly, please work with a dietitian knowledgeable in the low FODMAP diet to ensure you are following it correctly and meeting your nutritional needs. I want to make my own yogurt as its cheaper than buying the expensive low lactose probiotic yogurts and the packet stuff is gluten free too and still doesn’t have additives and gelatin and all the other crap yogurt seems to have added to it!
They do not realize that their body needs certain amount of calories to keep working properly. For lunch you can eat 3-ounce turkey breast sandwich with pita bread, ? roasted pepper, lettuce, and 1 tsp mayonnaise.
For your breakfast, you can have cooked oatmeal with raisins and margarine, a cup of orange juice, and a cup of fat-free milk. To follow the right diet, you need to identify your individual sensitivities and dietary combinations. Evidence-based dietary management of functional gastrointestinal symptoms: The FODMAP approach. In my case, I had a year of suffering until my doctor figured out that fiber was actually the problem. But for some of us who still have the will, taking a high fiber diet wouldn't be much of a trouble.


Prepare for diet and meal plans that include high-fiber food and less saturated or trans fat. But for the purpose of simplicity, let’s assume even the folks who go on these diets are consuming the national average of approximately 450 grams of carbohydrate per day (in compliance with governmental recommendations, as a percent of overall intake). If you tell someone who eats Twinkies, potato chips, and candy bars all day to eat more fruit (and they do), you’ve almost guaranteed an improvement in their health if they eat bananas and apples instead of the aforementioned junk food.
I’m reasonably confident that the proponents of these diets are good people who really want to help others and have nothing but the best intentions. Ornish was the principle investigator on a trial published in the journal The Lancet in 1990.
In other words, there were not enough subjects in the study to determine a difference in these “hard” outcomes, so we can’t make a conclusion about such events, only the changes in “soft” outcomes.
Good science, bad interpretationGravity and insulin: the dynamic duoIf low carb eating is so effective, why are people still overweight? His clinical interests are nutrition, lipidology, endocrinology, and a few other cool things. Eg, the criticism of the Ornish Lifestyle Heart Trial is excellent (and I LOVED the kitten-stroking quip), and really could and should have stood alone. After short diologue with her on the particulars of her daily intake I quickly realized her consumption of carbohydrate was significantly reduced and eliminated almost all fructose.
I have been following the FODMAP for about a month but we have a freezer full from our garden and was wondering if they were ok to eat?
I only have a small amount of yogurt with my breakfast but its still a good source of morning protein, calcium needs and those wonderful probiotics that help our tummies too! I break my bones and stretch those muscles as hard as I can, then take sierrasil to relieve myself from it. Popularity, of course, was determined by a number of factors, including compliance with current government recommendations (sorry Atkins), number of people who have tried the diet, and reported success on the diets. That doesn’t mean bananas and apples are “good for you” – it just means they are less “bad for you.” Here’s the kicker, though. But that doesn’t mean we can or should overlook the errors being made in drawing their conclusions. I’m not discounting soft outcomes, only pointing out the distinction for folks not familiar with them. They never factor in that the chicken was breaded or that when someone ate steak or fish they had a large amount of bread of potatoes along with it.
The M stands for monosaccharide or the sugar, fructose, when present in foods in excess of the glucose content–found in some apples, pears, watermelon, honey and agave syrup! For dinner, you have to eat 4 ounces of grilled sole or flounder, 2 grilled tomato sliced with 2 tbsp parmesan sprinkle, a cup of steamed broccoli, a cup of cooked couscous, and a cup of fat-free pudding. For lunch, you can eat taco salad that contains ground turkey, tortilla chips, tomato slices, iceberg lettuce, black beans, salsa, low-fat cheddar, lime juice, and avocado. No matter where you look at it, your health - and figure - relies on your actions, or lack thereof.
We’re led to believe that the reason such folks get leaner and more healthy is because they are eating more fruits or more vegetables or more grains or more [fill-in-the-blank], rather than because they eliminated the most egregious offenders from their diet. Ornish personally, and I can only assume that he is a profoundly caring physician who has dedicated his life to helping people live better lives. But as always, I STRONGLY encourage folks with access (or folks who are willing to purchase it) to read the paper in its entirety. For dinner, you must eat whole wheat roll, spinach lasagna with mozzarella cheese, and ricotta, and a cup of fat-free milk.
For people who don’t want to read the study completely, or who may not have much experience reading clinical papers, I want to devote some time to digging into this paper. The end conclusion is the whole thing must be bad and therefore needs to be reduced or outright expunged from the diet. I recall hearing Gary talking about his discussion with a participant from the Biggest loser on Larry King and the rapant weight gain after the show.
It will give some bad effect such as fatigue, loss of concentration, fainting, and malnutrition. It’s hard to tell if this change was statistically significant by inspection, so you glance at the p-value which tells you it was not. That is one big difference I’ve noticed between studies cited by writers who want to condemn the entire diet consumed by Americans vs those who look at it with a more in depth eye and realize that certain components are the problem not the whole diet across the board.
Therefore, if you are on a diet, you must watch your calories intake so that it will not endanger the health of your body. Why did the people in the China Study who ate more plants do better than those who ate more animals (assuming they did)? Well, for starters, reading abstracts, hearing CNN headlines, or reading about studies in the NY Times doesn’t actually give you enough information to really understand if the results are applicable to you. Parenthetically, if you actually want the answer to this question, beyond my peripheral address, below, please read Denise Minger’s categorically brilliant analysis of the study. Beyond this reason, and let me be uncharacteristically blunt, just because a study is published in a medical journal it does not imply that is worth the paper it is printed on.
Steve Rosenberg, once told me that a great number of published studies are never again cited (I forget the exact number, but it was staggering, over 50%). Translation: whatever they published was of such little value that no one ever made reference to it again.
The thing is, it is possible to eliminate wheat and still eat way too many carbs (can we say ice cream?).
I’m now happily in ketosis, and the best part is, I know the WHY of weight loss now, how totally liberating and hope giving.
