Foods like white flour, sugar, fried foods, processed foods and other hard, starches should all be removed from your diet. Opt for whole grains, beans, fresh fruits and vegetables as well as lean meats and fish. Foods high in fibre are great for keeping regularity as they help move waste through the digestive tract. These foods include cereals, whole wheat pastas, beans, fresh vegetables, fruits and bran cereals. For more information on a Low Fodmap Diet, visit
