Have you tried eliminating any foods from your diet to manage or relieve symptoms? What foods seem to trigger symptoms the most? Share any tips and tell us about your experiences!

The foods that I tend to regret a while after I eat them are my favourites, mostly pasta and pizza. So I generally avoid wheat and dairy. Eliminating them from my regular diet has made a huge difference. I definitely experience less bloating and discomfort. I also switched to decaf, and it has made a bit of a difference, although I'm sure it would be better if I could quit my caffeine addiction entirely... I may get there one day 😀 – Jessie (team member)

@slh11192 - yes! Same here about the bell peppers. I learned bell peppers are a nightshade food, which some people can have allergies and reactions to! I think that is my case for sure. It can cause inflammation and all sorts of GI issues. I didn't realize a few other foods fell under that category as well. And here I thought I was eating well! How have you been feeling lately? -Kimberli (team member)

Yeah. Unfortunately I'm intolerant to most of the groups so I'm reasonably restricted as the only I was able to reintroduce was fructose. But within fodmap I have worked out which foods have the biggest reaction and others that are just uncomfortable. My biggest intolerances are wheat, lactose, onion and garlic, polyols which include sorbitol, mannitol and xylitol found in mushrooms, cauliflower and apricots. Beans, peas and legumes also cause issues but if they are in food that's been cooked for me it's not the end of the world. I like to advocate for people having gut issues to try fodmap because even though I'm still restricted in my eating knowing what triggers me was super helpful to find out.
