    Thanks @Contralto Last night, I learned that an acquaintance has IBS, and I really don't know anything about it. Appreciate the article overviewing the FODMAPS diet. :)

    Can I say, I've been on this diet (more or less, I adjust based on my personal responses to certain foods) and it is AMAZING! Of course I follow the diet combined with certain probiotics and anti-spasmodic medication but I fully recommend this to anyone with stomach sensitivities

    My Mum has IBS. I had to laugh at this article - all the foods to exclude she can't eat, and the foods to include she can't eat - both because she would be on the toilet after eating them!

    There are other more extensive lists of foods on other sites.
    I find it to be very helpful and the lists I have give you acceptable portions, like 3 asparagus spears or 1-2 tablespoons nuts
    Garlic and onion powder are the worst on all lists and I completely agree. I use garlic infused olive oil, which I prefer as it's not bitter at all and I need to eat onions sparingly.
    For anyone with tummy issues I highly recommend trying it.
    Some foods work and some still don't, like any food list.
