I honestly have not tried a banana since I started this diet a year and a half ago, mainly due to initially avoiding high sugar/glycemic foods. Haven't gotten around to reintroducing it yet. I've been sticking to berries as my main fruit intake, but lately I've been moderating it again, only going for it when it's in season.
FODMAPs involves avoiding short chain carbohydrates and monosaccharides. It's an ancronym for all the main scientific sources you should avoid. It essentially involves starving the bad bacteria in your gut and aids in poor absorption.
Herbs are a godsend! I've never heard of herbs breaking out people before. Weird. That sucks.
Hey man, you have AMAZING self-control. No banana for a year and half? I eat a banana once a month, not sure if that is safe for me though.
Can you eat an unlimited amount of ground beef without breaking out (granted it is grass-fed).
Do you eat any dairy at all (i.e. cheeses or butter)?
Also, regarding avocados... isn't two avocados a day too much avocados? Do you still eat two avocados a day, or do you alternate it with something else?
Which name-brand extra virgin olive oil do you consume?
