    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.

    I have found the Monash Uni app to be really helpful in terms of telling me what can and can't be eaten. It isn't cheap but it is super helpful. For recipes I quite like www.fructosefreecooking.com as it has a section that includes different diets, which I found really helpful.
