The low-FODMAP diet isn’t forever, and it’s really only a tool to use to reduce your IBS and SIBO symptoms while you work on healing your gut and getting rid of any overgrowths.

I know how difficult it is to work on expanding your diet after you’ve been eating low-FODMAP for a while and feeling great. But it’s important to reintroduce these carbs as they’re the only source of food for your good gut bacteria.
