3. Remember this is only a temporary measure

If anyone finds the idea of following a low FODMAP diet is off-putting, it should help to keep in mind that it only a short-term plan. It is unwise to deprive the body of many of the excluded foods for a long time since they also contribute to healthy intestine functioning. Therefore, the dietician puts the patient on this diet for approximately two months. Once this time has passed, they gradually reintroduce some of the "banned" foods to test how the patient's body responds. It is thus possible to find out which particular FODMAP foods could be the source of problems.
