  1. Ani, I have fructose malabsorption, too. I was diagnosed a year ago. I am so glad to hear I am not alone with the veggie thing. I've actually felt ashamed that I can't down a plate of hard core veggies like other people. I have felt depressed, too, but I thought it was the combination of physical pain and dread of the hours passing and my strange self-inflicted shame. Oddly, I can eat sauerkraut and brussel sprouts. I've never tried eating them both at the same sitting... I'm not crazy! I also can't eat raw bell peppers or carrots but can tolerate them cooked.
  2. Yes! I'm on day 16 of my first Whole30. I feel so much better and tolerate vegetables so much better that I tried a big serving of steam broccoli on day 8. I had horrendous bloating and trapped gas and was miserable for about 10 hours. I was so upset, I thought that was the end of being able to tolerate vegetables. But I've avoided broccoli since and everything is back to "good."
