Endometriosis Diet?

Hello everyone!

Please can you tell me what foods trigger the Endo and cause the pains? I would also like to know what foods seem to reduce the pains? I am struggling knowing what the best foods are to eat that don't cause me a lot of pains afterwards so I'd like to know ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Thank you in advance!

Different foods affect different people.

I find that dairy and wheat cause me to bloat and have pain as well as others.

Have a look at the FODMAP diet, it's for Ibs but it can help with different food groups and what can aggravate your stomach xxx

Sugar is really linked to my pain so I avoid it as much as possible. I also avoid wheat, caffeine and anything processed really. I eat a lot of fish, vegetables, eggs, lentils, quinoa and drink lots of water and peppermint tea! I have started being really strict again recently as I'd slipped into eating everything again and ive seen a massive change in energy. Hope that helps


As has been said here, it's different for every woman. I tend to react bad to red meat, caffeine, alcohol and sugar, so I try to avoid those. I find ginger tea extremely soothing, I tend to drink about two cups a day. I also drink a lot of water.
