The low FODMAP diet should only be undertaken under the supervision of a registered dietitian. The elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet is extremely restrictive and should only be implemented for a limited period of time as part of a monitored treatment programme for medically diagnosed gut conditions. Due to the restrictive nature of the diet, it is not recommended for people with a history of disordered eating. Please talk to a professional if you have any concerns regarding the suitability of the low FODMAP diet for your individual circumstances.
