Research shows that your gut microbiome changes within 3 weeks of starting a Low FODMAP diet, negatively impacting the number and types of beneficial bacteria in your gut.
That’s not to say that you shouldn’t try a low FODMAPs diet to help you improve symptoms of IBS, we frequently use this first step strategy with our clients as research shows that 3 out of 4 people with IBS get some symptom improvement on a low FODMAPs diet.
However our dietitians aim to transition our clients from a low FODMAPs diet so that they are able to broaden their diet to a full range of foods again, which makes cooking at home and socializing with friends much easier
This will also help to nurture their good gut bacteria which will help to
– Reduce gut inflammation so their gut is happier and less sensitive to stress
– Reduce inflammation through the rest of their body as well which can help to
– Maintain a healthy body weight
– Improve heart health, such as cholesterol and triglycerides
– Improve blood sugar control
– Improve mood and mental health
