How can I figure out what FODMAP foods I can eat and which I can't?

ANSWER

Once your tummy calms down after you cut FODMAPs out of your diet, you can bring back foods one at a time at a rate of one item per week. You might discover that you’re only sensitive to one or two FODMAP carbs, not all of them.
