Just a quick post today, a small update until I have a little more time to show you what I’ve been working on.
At almost two weeks into following low FODMAP guidelines I am feeling…somewhat better. I have had a couple of bouts of cramps but nothing incapacitating and overall I am just feeling like I’m turning a corner into something better.
It has been a hard slog at times, particularly when I’ve not been at home at meal times. I also feel very restricted at times and my inner rebel just wants to eat the onion in any meal. I am staying strong though!
This weekend I have my next breath test, so I’m hoping ok to find out once and for all whether I have fructose malabsorption or not.
I have been doing a lot of reading/research on IBS and FODMAPs, which has helped me to feel in control and positive. Food has been simple due to my time constraints but I look forward to trialling and sharing some recipes that I’ve been working on.
I’d love to hear how you’ve coped with a change to low FODMAP eating in the first few weeks, or how you coped with fructose issues so leave a comment below!
