FODMAPs

So Much Information, So Little Time!As I continue to tackle research related to digestive problems, the plot continues to thicken!I was speaking with a dietitian friend last week, and as we discussed the prevalence of allergies and digestive problems she mentioned the FODMAP diet to me. I had never even heard of FODMAPs, but I am sure glad I am learning about it now. It looks like a great piece of the puzzle, and is answering some more of my… Read more »
