the latest trend that triumphs to lose weight and deflate the belly
In recent months you may have heard of the FODMP diet, a nutritional plan reduced in fermentable carbohydrates that helps lose weight and finish the swollen belly. Although its use is recommended in people with gastrointestinal pathologies, it tends to be low in sugars and contribute to weight loss.
This diet includes a wide variety of food of the different groups, but excludes those plant foods rich in fermentable short-chain carbohydrates and that in some people they can reach the large intestine undigested and be a substrate for bacteria, causing gas, bloating, abdominal pain and even diarrhea.
It is an eating plan reduced in sugars and foods that contain resistant starch such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, legumes or whole grains. And of course, remove the commercial sweets and all kinds of processed with added sugars
Experts recommend the FODMAP diet to people who frequently suffer from abdominal distention, flatulence, diarrhea or other gastrointestinal pathologies and especially to patients suffering from irritable bowel or Crohn’s disease, as It reduces inflammation and abdominal pain and the rate of evacuation of the intestine.
Although it has become fashionable among people looking to lose weight, experts recommend not following this diet if you do not have any pathology and much less do it without medical supervision, since it can put your health at risk.
Also the FODMAP diet is very restrictive, since it is limited to few foods and preparations, so if it is maintained long-term without the supervision of a nutritionist, nutritional deficiencies may develop.
Foods that should be consumed following the FODMAP diet:
- Fruits such as blueberries, coconut, currant, banana, kiwi or tangerine.
vegetables like olives, celery, chard, spinach or endives.
- Dairy and substitutes such as cured cheeses, mozzarella, yogurt and lactose-free dairy or vegetable drinks.
The meats raw, the white and blue fish, and the egg.
- Cereals and tubers such as rice, corn or quinoa.
Sweeteners such as sugar, glucose and aspartame.
- Nuts and oils such as nuts, olive or sunflower oil.
