    Fodmaps

    Has anyone done a Fodmaps elimination diet? Did you get results? And if so how long did it take?

    Thanks

    I'm about to start, for me. Dreading it actually. I'm also comparing it to the GAPs diet, which I suspect may be better.

    I don't much much about it. Does it treat symptoms or cause?

    It looks to be a good list of foods to cut out... though I'm not sure what healing is included in the diet? What support is given to heal the gut while these foods are eliminated? Is it presumed the gut heals while getting a rest, or do you go on this diet permanently to treat the symptoms?

    meow its a permanent diet providing he shows improvement while on it.

    We weren't told about the gaps diet, just this one. Ill have a google later when I have more time.

    Look into GAPS. It's a an enhanced, healing version of the specific carbohydrate diet. After a year or so you should be albe to heal the gut of allergies and interolerances and eat a normal, healthy diet. Just eliminating foods wont treat the cause and heal the gut.
