5 Ways to Have a Smooth Transition into a Low Fodmap Diet


Often times, it can be very challenging to switch from a particular diet to another. According to your body needs, your regular foods might not be suitable. A low Fodmap diet is usually ideal for people with digestive issues.

If you are unaware, FODMAP stands for fermentable, oligo-, di-, mono-saccharides, and polyols. All of these carbs may be affecting your digestive system. By slowly transitioning into a low Fodmap diet, you can start to live a healthier lifestyle. You might face many challenges along the way, but here are some basic ways to start a low Fodmap diet.

Keep Track Of Your Food Intake

One of the best ways to begin a new diet is by keeping track of the foods. It would be best to keep track of everything you eat, such as the number of calories and the macronutrients inside, among other things.

You will also get a better understanding of the foods that may be affecting your digestive system. Keep track of how they make you feel, and over time the log will be very beneficial to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Slowly Incorporate It into Your Diet

It is essential that you slowly start adopting the low Fodmap diet. Eliminate all the foodstuff that has higher levels of those carbs, but only for a few days or a couple weeks. The test run will help you understand if the new diet will be good for your digestive system while providing the essential nutrients.

You should take a closer look into the foods that you usually consume, see if any of them have fructose, lactose, fructans, or polyols. Your body will feel much better once they are out of your system.

Order from A Meal Prep Delivery Service

You may not know what food would be most beneficial to start a low Fodmap diet and the recipes that can keep you hooked to it.

You can hire the services of a professional catering company that can send foods directly to your house, workplace, or any other location. You can look at the options for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Even get all three if need be. These will not only help you in the transition period, but also assist in maintaining the diet.

You can even ask the catering company to prepare a special meal for a special day, like a home date.

Let People around You Know

You may be getting used to the new cuisine, but there are temptations all around. You should inform other people about your dietary change, especially if you have a hankering for the older foods every once in a while.

You should also inform your employer of the dietary restrictions before they hire a caterer. You can ask your regular meal prep provider or find an office catering service that can help prepare low Fodmap friendly cuisine for the party. They don’t necessarily have to only make those foods, ask your boss to simply include one or two low Fodmap dishes in the event.
