Been scanning through posts for a few weeks now & thought nows the time to join in !
I've been 'trying' to follow the fodmap diet as closely as possible ( it's so complicated) after going to see my doctor & them recommending it could help so went to a group talk on what is is etc ... so now got the fodmap app & book & booklets from the NHS group .
As it's only been two weeks into it does anyone know how long it roughly takes to feel a positive effect on your ibs ??
The main change I have found is in my stool formation ( really can't believe I'm actually typing this down !!!) & I can only put it down to the new diet !?!?
My main symptoms are flatulence, bloated tummy with pains, rumbling tummy and recently started with burping lots ... 😳Lovely !!
Also does anyone know whether on this diet you should be avoiding all diary products as I'm not but don't feel like I'm overeating them either . Oh & one more thing I was taking probiotics but stopped once I started the diet as I wanted to see if the diet alone would help me figure out any trigger foods. Am i right to do that ?
Gosh sorry that's rather a lot for a first timer!
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
