If you are new to SIBO and wondering what to eat,
have a look at my Sexy Sibo Level 1 Diet.
The Level 1 diet is, essentially, a low-FODMAPs version of
the SCD/GAPS Intro Diet. I created this for people with IBS-C and SIBO.
There are two levels, Basic and Advanced.
Start with Level 1 – Basic for one to two weeks,
or until symptom relief happens.
Move to Advanced as symptoms and personal tolerances allow.
(If you know you can't tolerate nuts, or coconut milk, or eggs, for example, don't eat them!)
Remain on Level 1 for at least one month, and during active treatment.
ALWAYS fall back to Level 1 Basic if flaring in future!
NOTE: Please use the highest quality meats and animal foods whenever possible.
Choose naturally-raised, organic, wild or pastured animal foods and organic produce.
And now, Introducing....
The Sexy Sibo Level 1 Diet
Here's what you CAN eat!
And here's what you need to avoid.
These high FODMAP foods will ferment in your belly
causing gas, bloating and other symptoms.
DO NOTE EAT: Beans, Grains*, Flour, Corn, Soy, Wheat, Milk, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Garlic, Onions, Cruciferous Vegetables (Broccoli, Cauliflower, Collards), Mushroom, Celery, Dried Fruit, Dates, Apple, Pear, Peach, Plum, Pectin, Inulin, Chicory, FOS, Gums, Seaweeds, Carrageenan.
*possible exception: Jasmine rice, ½ cup
