I’m starting on the low FODMAP diet and wondering if this is really how it’s supposed to go?
Eat. Cramp. Fart.
Eat. Cramp. Burp.
Eat. Cramp. Fart and Burp.
I know most of you probably don’t appreciate bathroom humor. You’re welcome. I tamed it down some from reality. I’ve had IBS for many, many years. Only recently was I tested for fructose malabsorption (aka intolerance) where your gut cannot break down a certain carbo chain and instead the helpful/not-helpful organisms in there gorge on it balloon your intestines up with their byproducts (farts). Your soft muscles (self-cramping) of your intensities work overtime passing them through and up (burp) and out (you know by now). Since you don’t get to control how hard they work, they work as hard as they want which is very painful.
God help us.
Please share your experiences with a newby low FODMAPer (and please tell me it will get better)!
