What are FODMAPS? It could help you!

Living Beauty is my passion in life where I train girls to compete in fitness competitions or just for everyday health. I have been in the fitness industry for 20 years so I have lots of knowledge to share and am always keeping up to date with the latest developments. I enjoy the fitness industry so much and really love every minute of eating, breathing and sleeping the fitness lifestyle.

I always make quinoa, brown rice, grilled chicken and a huge amount of vegetables. This week I also made gluten free cupcakes with fresh lime. I also like to create new recipes for example: protein ice cream, protein balls and chocolate treats.

Since 2011 (5 years) I have been following a low FODMAPS diet recommended to be by my dietician. My stomach has been sensitive so I agreed to try this. Basically I always knew I was allergic to dairy and wheat but I could not understand why I was still feeling sick even though I had eliminated these for years. It turns out I have allergies including some fruits, onions, garlic, beans/legumes and dandelion tea. I was eating most of these daily so no wonder I felt sick. Fructose malabsorption is becoming more common and the dietician has clinics over Australia that are conducting research and having great success with healing thousands of people people via this diet.

FODMAPs is an acronym referring to Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols*.

These are complex names for a collection of molecules found in food, that can be poorly absorbed by some people. When the molecules are poorly absorbed in the small intestine of the digestive tract, these molecules then continue along their journey along the digestive tract, arriving at the large intestine, where they act as a food source to the bacteria that live there normally. The bacteria then digest/ferment these FODMAPs and can cause symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).


I am posting this in the hope it may help others as it certainly has helped me.
