Farer ved FODMAP-kuren -- Dangers of the FODMAP-diet

Nu har jeg så fulgt FODMAP-kuren i godt seks uger, så nu vil jeg skrive en lille opsummering af hvad der er sket. Efter 3 dage havde jeg ikke ondt i maven længere - og det har jeg ikke haft siden - tænk seks uger uden mavepine! Og så har jeg fået energien igen. Det er farligt, for denne kur har et par bivirkninger, jeg ikke er blevet advaret imod ;)  Og de kommrer til at koste os penge. Prøv bare at se:

After 6 weeks on the FODMAP diet I feel like writing a bit of what has happened. After 3 days my tummy stopped hurting after having done so for 30 years, and I'm still pain free! Yippee - 6 weeks without stomach-ache.
And I've had my energy back.The diet also have had some secondary effects, I was not warned against. And they are potentially expensive. Just look at this:

  • Haven ser sådan ud. Der skal indkøbes frø og småplanter til at fylde bedene! 
  • My garden looks like this. I need to go shopping for seeds and small plants to fill up the beds. 

  • Og her er vore haveredskaber - jeg har knækket / slidt et par af dem op nu - der må købes nye. 
  • Our garden utensils. I have broken / worn out a couple of them, and need to buy some new. 

  • Fantastisk billede af mig ;) Jeg må have nye bukser - eller i hvert fald nogle bælter, da de her (og deres kolleger i skabet til højre) er blevet et par numre for store. Jeg kan tage dem af, uden at lyne dem op først. Det er kun smart, når man har meget travlt. 
  • Fabulous self portrait. I need some new pants, as these, and all other like them living in the cupboard to the right, are now several sizes too big. I can undress without unzippering - practical in a hurry, but for normal wear it's plain irritating ;) 
     En anden bieffekt er at min "pyt-muskel" er vokset. Jeg skælder ikke længere ud over småting, men smiler og siger pyt!

One more side effect. my "never mind-muscle" has grown. I'm not scolding so much over small incidents. Rather I'm doing what I always saw as the ideal way to handle it. Asking "Was anybody hurt?" If not then clean it up and carry on.

  2. That's so great, Uglemor - to be pain free after so many years! I'm really pleased for you:-)

    You look to be in great shape, too. I hope you're able to buy yourself a nice, new set of clothes to wear. It must feel wonderful that your diet has worked so well!

    God bless, Uglemor:-)

    1. Yes it's great It's so wonderful to hear the Owlets complain that I'm working too hard. Their normal complaint has so far been, that I was too lazy ... When my weitgh has stabilized, I'm going to buy new clothes, but until then I'll make do with a belt ;)

  4. Uglemor,

    Your blog title was attention grabbing! If I wasn't already reading all your posts, I would have clicked over immediately to find out more! I love your sense of humour.

    Wow! You need new clothes. I hope you get to enjoy a shopping trip. New outfits are just as important as seeds and tools. Just noticed your comment above about buying clothes. Andy is in the same position. He's tightening his belt as he wants to lose more weight before he goes shopping.

    I can see I'm going to have to find out more about the FOD-MAP diet. So glad to hear you're feeling so well.

    1. Unfortunately I hate shopping clothes :( I do it once every 2-3 years and bring Big Sister (my oldest) as my fashion advisor. Of course I mostly wear the pieces of clothing I chose myself, and she declared "not totally hopeless", probably mostly because I love being comfortable and not getting cold while working in house and garden. Sundays and for more formal occasions I see the wisdom of her choices.
      But I must admit that I love buying tools and seeds, and I'm just waiting for a rainy day to get doing it.

      Thanks for your inspiring comments.

  5. Kære Uglemor.
    Tak for din besked på min blog. Jeg skyndte mig selvfølgelig herind, men faktisk var det første, der skete ikke et smil på læben, men i stedet en klump i halsen og en lillebitte tåre i øjenkrogen. Men det blev selvfølgelig efterfulgt af et smil: hvor er det bare fantastisk! Jeg bliver simpelthen rørt, fordi jeg jo er gået helt det samme igennem. Og det er en befrielse og en forløsning uden lige. Jeg er så glad for dine - og på mine vegne, for ingen skal leve med daglige mavesmerter, ingen energi og en mave, der ser gravid ud.
    Det er rigtig godt gået, Uglemor! Fortsæt det gode arbejde og nyd dig selv. Det er altså ikke dårligt, sådan også at skulle ud og have nye bukser - det kan jeg godt nok ikke prale af, men til gengæld så strammer mit gamle tøj ikke længere og jeg behøver ikke knappe bukserne op over middag ;-)
    Kærlig hilsen Maja
