In this video, we’re going to talk about FODMAPs in relationship to IBS and IBD.

FODMAP is an acronym for:
• Fermentable – carbs that are digested by gut bacteria
• Oligosaccharides – grains, garlic, onions, and legumes
• Disaccharides – dairy products
• Monosaccharides – fructose
• Polyols – sorbitol and mannitol

IBS stands for irritable bowel syndrome, and IBD stands for inflammatory bowel disease.

The differences between IBS and IBD are:
– With IBS, there are no ulcers or lesions. It also only occurs in the colon. Essentially, it is inflammation in the large intestine.
– With IBD, there are a group of bowel issues that causes inflammation in different parts of the gastrointestinal (GI) system.

The same things trigger both IBS and IBD:
• Gluten
• Sugar
• Grains
• Lactose
• Siber
• Omega-6 fatty acids

Symptoms of IBS and IBD include:
• Abdominal pain
• Diarrhea
• Bloating
• Gas

FODMAPs increase gas in the GI tract, which can stretch and expand the colon. Those with IBS and IBD are very sensitive to this stretching because of inflammation.

On a low-FODMAP diet, you want to consume plenty of low-FODMAP foods and avoid all high-FODMAP foods.

• Broccoli
• Cauliflower
• Asparagus
• Brussels sprouts
• Cabbage
• Peas
• Mushrooms

• Shallots
• Garlic
• Artichokes
• Okra
• Beetroot
• Fennel
• Leeks
• Fruits
• Dairy products
• Legumes
• Grains
• Starches

• Bell pepper
• Carrot
• Herbs
• Cucumber
• Lettuce
• Tomato
• Zucchini
• Eggplant
• Radish
• Squash
• Meats
• Seafood
• Feta cheese
• Hard cheeses
• Lactose-free diary
• Almond milk
• Eggs
• Dark chocolate
• Macadamia nuts
• Pumpkin seeds
• Walnuts

If you do the low-FODMAPs diet and still experience gut issues, it may help to cut out all vegetables and do a carnivore diet until your gut heals.
