FODMAP by FM app - Stage 1 Restriction
What is stage 1?
In Stage 1 of the low FODMAP diet, try to restrict foods containing FODMAPs for 4-8 weeks as strictly as possible in order to improve your bowel symptoms. This is usually long enough to determine if your symptoms will respond to a low FODMAP diet. FODMAP restriction should not continue indefinitely.
How to use the app
The aim of this app is to support you in shopping for suitable foods, during each stage. In stage 1 the app will automatically exclude foods with high FODMAP ingredients. The search results will only show you suitable products and some products give guidance on portion limits. For a quick reference you can also use our Quick Food Checker and handy ready made lists.
For more information please refer to full guide which you can access in the app.
