A word from our founder, James:


I was first introduced to the low FODMAP diet by the dietician I was referred to after having major surgery.  They said that it helped a lot of people who had had procedures like mine.  It all seemed so complicated that I refused point blank to engage with it, especially since I'd never had any dietary requirements before.  As time went by I forgot about my dietician's advice, and my tummy got progressively worse.  Within a few years things had gotten pretty bad; I remembered the low FODMAP diet and decided to give it a go.

The learning curve was steep to say the least.  I read every label of every item I picked up in the supermarket, and was staggered to realise how much of it I couldn't eat any more.  Take aways, convenience foods, and many of my favourite snacks and sweets were off limits.  I spent so much time thinking about food, especially what I couldn't eat, and it left me feeling really low.

Eventually I got the hang of which foods were in and which were out, I learned how to adjust my old favourite recipes, and my cooking skills improved considerably.  More importantly my symptoms are now much better controlled. I was amazed that something as simple as changing what you eat could have such a big impact, but it just seemed such a shame that the journey had to be so difficult.  I decided that something had to be done.

I envisioned a shop where I could buy anything I could see, that had versions that I could eat of all my favourite foods (pizza included!), and that was staffed by people who understood my needs.  I hope that Fodpod lives up to that dream, and that it helps you to get back to enjoying your food, whatever your dietary requirements.
