How does the low-FODMAP diet work?

Firstly, the low-FODMAP diet is a temporary therapeutic solution. It begins with a complete FODMAP restriction for 4-6 weeks after an overview of the diet with your dietitian. At your next follow-up, you and your dietitian will review your adherence to the diet, current symptoms, and begin a controlled reintroduction of FODMAPs over 5 weeks to determine your FODMAP tolerance level. Following the reintroduction phase, you will be able to enjoy a variety of nutritionally adequate foods, restore your healthy gut bacteria, and improve your diet-related quality of life.
