How much detail should I track?
We know everyone tracks differently. We encourage you to be as detailed as possible and document meal ingredients, along with portion sizes of each ingredient can significantly impact the assessment your team makes. This is especially important for participants on Low FODMAP diets. You might recognize that certain foods change from low to high FODMAP based on the quantity you are consuming. This level of detail can greatly improve your care recommendations.
We do understand it can be a tedious process to record all of this information, so if it is easier or preferred, you can take a picture of an ingredients label or the meal itself to share with your GI-specialized care team.
