Note on my last post: I talked about FODMAPs as items that are not digested well or can ferment in the intestines. It’s important to note that it’s not the poor digestion or fermentation that is the issue. This happens in all people, but one of the theories on IBS is that sufferers are more sensitive to the side effects such as bloating from increased water in the bowels or gas production. Normal processes cause distress resulting in pain.
After over two weeks of sticking to low-lactose diet, I ramped up to the full FODMAP diet on Monday of this week. This post is all about how I handled reducing my lactose intake and my first experiences with pulling wheat out as well.
