Phase 1: Upon being advised by your physician or Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) to begin the Low FODMAP diet, start by eliminating foods from your diet that are high in FODMAPs. This trial period can last from 2 to 6 weeks.
Phase 2: Under the guidance of your physician or RDN, reintroduce FODMAPs one at a time to distinguish individual FODMAP triggers and tolerance.
Phase 3: From there, a customized, well-balanced diet can be designed to address your personal dietary needs.
Many people discover they can still enjoy their favorite high-FODMAP foods on occasion, in moderation. The goal is for each individual to eat the most varied diet he or she can tolerate. For more information on the Low FODMAP diet, visit LowFODMAPcentral.com.
