I have read this 'FODMAP' word so many times and yet I am at a loss as to what it means I presume it stands for something like 'Food or Diet Making Arse Problems' but I doubt if I am right. I also understand it to be very secretive as I can't find much information on it other than it exists. Can anyone explain?
I know from experience certain foods 'do me in' and my list is very long as are the effects. Such as if I eat a grape I will suffer from acid reflux for a few hours, so I don't eat them! If I eat beef my joints hurt more than they do normally, so I don't! and so on.
