What are FODMAPs?

You’ve maybe heard this strange term floating around, especially if you have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). But what does it actually mean?!

FODMAPs is an acronym that stands for:

Fermentable

Oligosaccharides

Disaccharides

Monosaccharides

And

Polyols

While these are perfectly healthy nutrients, foods that contain these substances can sometimes cause a flare-up of symptoms in people with IBS. (But note that FODMAPs do not cause IBS!)

You are what you eat – right?

Well… partly – but there’s so much more to it than that!

When it comes to healthy living (IBS or not), I like to focus on 5 key foundational elements with my clients.

And (shock, horror) only one of them is nutrition!

While nutrition is often the biggest piece of the puzzle, there are other areas that you absolutely need to look at as well, otherwise you’re probably undermining all your efforts in the kitchen.

By taking positive action in each of these five foundational areas, the halo effect on the rest of your life can really be profound.

These are the places where one change can easily blossom effortlessly in to more change, and before you know it your entire lifestyle has been overhauled for the better!

Do you have IBS?

Odds are, even if you don’t, then you know someone who does. There are estimates that up to even 1 in 5 people may suffer from it!

It’s also highly likely that if someone you know has IBS they just aren’t talking about it. The symptoms are really something people like to discuss about openly and can make sufferers feel embarrassed or uncomfortable. 

Irritable bowel syndrome can greatly impact the person’s daily activities and quality of life. There’s a lot of stress and uncertainty around where and when they may experience a flare-up of symptoms. 

So they definitely need an extra dose of understanding and empathy!
