Many abdominal symptoms like abdominal pain, abdominal cramps, diarrhea and constipation as well as non-intestinal complaints such as headaches, dizziness, rashes, runny or blocked nose, fatigue, lightheadedness, watery eyes and other symptoms can be attributed to the diet or individual foods. The identification of food related symptoms is usually difficult since we consume various foods during the course of a day. Dieticians, medical practitioners and professional societies recommend using a professional food-symptom diary that logs food intake, amounts consumed and type of preparation as well as symptoms, symptom intensity and type of bowel movements (diarrhea, soft, normal, hard, none). Such a log helps you to determine individual intolerances to foods or food ingredients. The diary is kept small in size to allow you to carry it with you wherever you go. It is important that your diary accompanies you all the time to allow you to log all important information whenever food intake or symptoms happen. Additional tables list foods that are frequently badly tolerated. These lists will help you to identify intolerances against the most frequent lead substances like lactose, fructose, sorbitol, trehalose, gluten, histamine, salicylates, biogenic amines, pseudoallergens and others.

This book demystifies the low-FODMAP diet and provides 125 tasty and delicious recipes for a happy gut. Written by a specialist gut dietitian, The Low-FODMAP Recipe Book can help you to take control of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), functional bowel disorder and digestive distress. Dietary management is key to managing IBS and other gut disorders. The most successful diet for bringing relief for symptoms such as bloating, abdominal distension, excessive wind, diarrhoea and other digestive issues is the low-FODMAP diet, which has been medically proven in rigorous clinical trials to improve symptoms in up to 75 per cent of people with IBS. Because of the diet's success it is quickly becoming an essential treatment for people with a sensitive gut and can help in the management of a wide range of stomach troubles and gastrointestinal discomfort. The low-FODMAP diet will help you to identify food intolerances, including intolerance of lactose and fructose, and may also be used to help those who are suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Coeliac Disease and functional symptoms following gastrointestinal surgery. An expert in the low-FODMAP diet and gut disorders, author Lucy Whigham will help you to understand more about the way your gut functions and what is contributing to your symptoms. This book is an easy guide to why and how the low-FODMAP diet can help, and includes tables of what foods need to be avoided for the elimination phase and beyond. FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Di-saccharides, Mono-saccharides and Polyols) are naturally occurring sugars that are found in a wide range of everyday foods. They are not fully broken down during digestion and therefore cannot be completely absorbed by the body. Instead they travel through the gut where they are fermented by the bacteria that live in our gastrointestinal tract. In susceptible people (those with a sensitive gut) this fermentation can lead to excessive wind, bloating, pain, cramping and stomach gurglings. FODMAPs also draw water into the gut, which can lead to diarrhoea and frequent bowel motions. Cutting out foods that are high in these fermentable carbohydrates and following a low-FODMAP diet can help you to regain control over your digestive symptoms and thereby improve your quality of life. Once your symptoms are under control you can start to re-introduce FODMAPs to help you identify your individual intolerances and threshold levels. In this way you are empowered with the knowledge of exactly which foods cause you problems, putting you in the driving seat and letting you control your symptoms rather than have them control you.
