Just wanted to be sure you knew that I have uploaded a free FODMAPs 101 educational handout. This is an introductory guide about FODMAPs. For dietitians in practice, you may find this guide works well for educating your patients. It works well with my other FODMAP educational tools found here.
For those with a new diagnosis of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), I have a new SIBO guide too!
This is not a free handout. Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth is a condition that has not been widely studied. I created my recommendations based on my personal experience with this condition, clinical observations in my patients, research that I have gathered from clinical papers and personal perspectives via dialogue with leading SIBO experts, such as Mark Pimentel from Cedar Sinai. There are NO evidenced based diets for SIBO and often diet needs to be adjusted to individual tolerance. My philosophy is to implement the least restrictive diet as possible to nourish the body adequately. I believe, a low FODMAP diet is a good starting point, adjusting and adding in foods as tolerated.
