So you’ve just come back from the doctor, and he/she suggested you go on the low-FODMAP diet. Yeah, low-FODMAP what?!? I know how you feel and what you’re thinking right now because I too was there before. Uncomfortable, low energy, a distended belly, constipation (maybe it’s diarrhea and/or constipation for you), abdominal pain, and most of the time I had no desire to do much of anything. IBS was like the evil monster lurking in the closet, always there and sometimes too scary to handle.
However, now there’s no ugly monster.
Yes maybe sometimes my IBS comes back, but it’s not scary and I can handle it. It’s all because I found the low-FODMAP diet and really paid attention to FODMAPs, to my body and to giving myself what I needed – stress relief included. I did it all on my own without a support system, and with additional training in nutrition. However, you don’t have do this whole FODMAP thing alone and you don’t need to formally study nutrition, but you can learn more about the diet, more about food, and cooking really good dishes for yourself. The road you can consider taking is a new course (no pun intended), called The Everything Low-FODMAP™ E-Course.
Before I go on, I want to be totally transparent. This course is developed by two ladies I call my friends. We have low-FODMAP books under the same publisher and series and have been working together to help people like yourself to have a happier gut and we just really want to get the word out about the low-FODMAP diet.
The two ladies I am speaking of are sisters Dr. Barbara Bolen and Kathleen Bradley, CPC. Dr. Bolen has been working with IBS clients for some time now and is also the IBS expert on About.com. Kathleen has dealt with IBS herself and they both really care about making you empowered.
