    Study Finds IBS Improvement with Long-Term Low FODMAP Diet

    Study Finds IBS Improvement with Long-Term Low FODMAP Diet

    New research shows that a long-term low FODMAP diet can be used effectively for IBS. This is huge as there have been many theoretical concerns about using a low FODMAP diet long-term, such as negative impacts to the gut microbiota, nutrition levels, and quality of life. 
    However, we’ll cover each common criticism and answer them with science. 
    And if you have any additional questions about low FODMAP that you would like answered in the future, let me know in the comments!

Best of its kind

Dr Ruscio’s podcast is my favorite health podcast I’ve found so far, it’s informative, always based on fact or personal experience ( which is always clarified by him or his guests) and most importantly done with respect for his listeners time.
He doesn’t go on and on with information overload or self-aggrandizing behavior. He presents the information in a way that we can comprehend and absorb.
I recommend the show highly and have shared many episodes with other people.

Realistic and doable advice

Have been listening to the podcast ever since I began reading Healthy Gut. Months into working through my gut issues - primarily constipation-I’ve learned a lot, but found contradictions among other authors. On vacation recently I began lowFODMAP eating and within 10 days was feeling much better. Especially appreciate the focus on step by step action, clearly delivered in the book, and not pushing to have lots of tests!
