Eliminate FODMAP Foods

Foods that contain FODMAPs are sweets (high-fructose corn syrup, honey, and chocolate), most dairy (milk, soft cheese, ice cream, yogurt, and coconut milk), bloat-causing veggies (onions, garlic, asparagus, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, and mushrooms), wheat and rye breads, pastas, and rice, and any fruit with a high sugar content (avocado, apple, mango, pear, watermelon). Eliminate these FODMAP foods for the next seven days.
