Fashion at all times has the plaque of the revolution. After all, its essence — rejection of the status quo, which else yesterday strongly endorsed. Moreover, the stronger the denial, the more attractive the trend: people are a priori drawn to the spectacle.
Diet is no exception. And because of that, one of his forms where necessary a waiver of such notorious healthy of product, such as oatmeal, and less “titled” utility — Apple, was of special interest to lovers of diets. Let’s see how truly new cures.
THE BASIC NUANCES OF THE FODMAP DIET
The necessary rejection of products containing enzymatic oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols (FODMAP diet was invented by scientists of the University of Melbourne and is an acronym of the names of the substances). They are contained in such products and in the products produced using them: wheat, barley, rye, semolina, oats, barley cereals, cashews, pistachios, peanuts, xylitol, sorbitol, maltitol, mango, apricots, apples, legumes and dairy products.
EXPECTED EFFECTS ON THE HUMAN BODY
Substances and products are prohibited in the diet — a short-chain carbohydrates. Often they are not completely digested in the small intestine and cause digestive problems. In the intestine this increases the level of yeast that leads to defective absorption of nutrients and the emergence of chronic intoxication. In the end the metabolism, the weight of the person increases, there are allergies worse the immune system works. Waiver of such carbohydrates will make you healthier and normalize weight, which is the purpose of diet. Stick to this nutrition you need 6-8 weeks, during this time, you can throw up to 10 kg.

THE OPINION OF NUTRITIONIST, IMPROVEMENT WILL OCCUR
Boris Skachko, nutritionist:
“This diet was developed for people with irritable bowel syndrome, lactase deficiency, celiac disease or taking long-term antibiotics, not health for all. Those who advocate, emphasis is on the fact that anyone can lose weight with the rejection of these products. But the truth is somewhat different.
Yes, healthy people without these diseases really can lose weight, and it will decrease the symptoms of intoxication (sallow complexion, chronic fatigue, frequent colds). But not because of the menu will disappear “poorly digestible” foods: healthy GI tract digest full all. The effect of improvement and optimization of the weight occurs for a completely different reason. Just some of the products from the “black list” contain quite harmful ingredients: modified starch, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, textured vegetable protein, monosodium glutamate, sodium iodide, aspartame, neotame. And they have a number of manufacturers in the ready-made cereals, hard cheese, cakes and breads. In addition, products based on flour without bran (any cereals) do not contain fiber.

With regards to the lack of lactose. In a healthy person, of course, it is not. But what good to him will be from dairy products if they are not manufactured by the method of fermentation and for flavor they have added sweeteners and starch?
Then, of course, the rejection of banned products will benefit. And if, as suggested by the low FODMAP diet, increase the consumption of vegetables and berries and reduce the amount of sweet fruits and cereals (one of the negative consequences of their excess in the diet — weight gain), the improvement and normalization of weight will happen with time.
Gluten can be dangerous for “healthy” person. In quotes because people may simply not know that his body can not stand. Indirect signs of intolerance — flatulence, weight gain, vitamin deficiencies, anemia, frequent diarrhea or constipation. But it is not necessary to go to the lab in the presence of specified symptoms: markers of gluten intolerance a few, and what better to use, knows only doctor. Therefore start off with a consultation with a gastroenterologist or nutritionist.
