The Low FODMAPs Diet
Exercisers can be troubled by Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and functional gut symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, wind and altered bowel movements. These socially unacceptable symptoms can create anxiety and stress, and can interfere with training and busy schedules, and potentially compromise an individuals activity level. In some individuals, these abdominal symptoms can be triggered by molecules in food, in particular by poorly absorbed, short-chain, rapidly fermentable carbohydrates.
These groups of molecules are referred to as FODMAPs™ which stands for Fermentable Oligo-, Di- and Mono-saccharides And Polyols.
