leahcarn Posted August 28, 2014 Share Posted August 28, 2014 Background information: On day 26 of a low FODMAP whole45 aiming to sort out digestive issues (IBS-D). I was mostly ok on paleo, but thought I would go low fodmap for 30 days to see if that made a difference. Since I started whole30 it's been worse, so I decided to go for 45 instead to give my gut time to heal. I also have some sort of flu thing today, so I'm not sure if my current digestive issues are due to that, but it is discouraging anyway. I'm also craving banana with cashew butter. I'm taking the fact I'm craving it as a sign I shouldn't have it lol, although I did read somewhere that cashews are helpful for depression, so I'm not sure if it's that or a sugar craving???? I just really feel like throwing in the towel. I've done more research on FODMAPs on the internet and it seems some thing I thought were low, there is debate about, like yams and sweet potato. I'm worried I've done this all wrong, and wondering if I should just try and find a good doctor to help me through it (I was hoping to get the elimination diet to determine what foods I was having issues with out of the way before I saw the doctor, just for financial reasons). 19 days to go (hopefully). One blog I saw said to go fo at least 5 symptomless days before reintroducing anything, so I'll wait and see Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
