Low-FODMAP Diet Review
The Low-FODMAP Diet’s objective is to eliminate the foods that contain FODMAPs and retrain participants on how and what to eat. Using a 14-day diet plan, the Low-FODMAP Diet book explains what foods are “safe,” what foods may be able to be reintroduced after some time, and what foods are to be avoided at all times.
Do Dieters Lose Weight On The Low-FODMAP Diet?
By design, the Low-FODMAP Diet takes out many foods that contain high amounts of sugars and fats, otherwise known as junk food. As would be expected, cutting these types of foods out of a diet will decrease caloric intake significantly, which should lead to some weight loss, at least in the short term.* However, long-term weight loss would all depend on a participant’s willingness to stick to the diet plan, as well as their level of physical activity.back to menu ↑
Is The Low-FODMAP Diet Easy To Follow?
Because the Low-FODMAP Diet eliminates many foods, and even some complete food groups, the diet may not be the easiest to follow. Those who are accustomed to dining out on a regular basis will find the Low-FODMAP Diet especially difficult, as there is not a lot of restaurant food that complies with the diet plan.*
In addition, the Low-FODMAP Diet calls for many of the meals to be made by the participant. While the Low-FODMAP Diet does include many recipes, it still doesn’t take away from the fact that someone needs to prepare the meals. Those who are short on time as it is will quite likely find the meal demands of the Low-FODMAP Diet to be too much.*back to menu ↑
The cost of the Low-FODMAP Diet book is not all that bad at only $18.95, however, a low price doesn’t mean it’s the right diet for everyone. In fact, the diet itself is not one that should be undertaken half-heartedly. The Low-FODMAP Diet takes a tremendous amount of time, effort, and willpower to be successful.
Add to that the fact that the Low-FODMAP Diet only offers advice in the way of nutrition and does nothing in the area of exercise. While nutrition is indeed a key component of weight loss, only a combination of nutrition and fitness can guarantee long-term weight loss that lasts.
