Working on new app for low-FODMAP diet: want to hear your opinion!

Recommended Posts

Hi all- I am currently developing an app that is meant to help guide users through the low-FODMAP diet.

Brief Description of the app: Our app will have a meal planning feature that will offer the user a wide range of delicious low-FODMAP recipes to choose from and then generate a shopping list for them. The recipes are all inspired by the motto "food as medicine" to ensure that the patient is both healthy and adhering to the diet. Additionally, the app with have a symptom tracker and guided support during the Rechallenging phase of the diet. 

Some things I am curious about:

  1. Given that the low FODMAP diet is very restrictive I am curious if anyone has tried the low-FODMAP diet and thinks it is realistic for patients to stick to a completely low-FODMAP diet for months? 
  2. What are your general thoughts about this app proposal and do you think it would be something you would use?
  3. Finally, if you have tried the low-FODMAP diet: How did it go? What do you think would have made this an easier experience for you?

Appreciate any and all feedback, after all this app is being created to help improve the lives of those with IBS!

Due to my symptoms and fear of eating the wrong things, I have ended up eating an extremely bland diet. If I had my way I'd eat cereal every day for every meal. So a "very restrictive" low-FODMAP diet might actually give me more food options than I feel I have now. I struggle with meal planning in general, so I haven't seriously tried low-FODMAP diet.

I would like features to assist with an elimination diet, because my sense is there are certain carbohydrates that cause me no problems and ones that do.
