The myth about restrictive diets…





⚠️ Don’t Make This Mistake ⚠️


Most people believe that if they have SIBO or IBS or other digestive problems…


….that they need to follow a highly restrictive diet forever.


❌ It’s not true!!!!


Here’s the reality:


✅ Bacteria in the gut feed on carbohydrates to produce gas


✅ Diets like the Low-FODMAP Diet and the Specific Carbohydrate Diet limit the fuel source for gas-producing bacteria


✅ These diets can be extremely helpful at temporarily reducing symptoms like gas and bloating


✅ In the long run, the gut microbiome needs variety AND carbohydrate fuel sources to stay healthy


✅ So a better approach is to work on healing the gut and gradually reintroduce foods over time


Don’t go it alone!!!!
