To say the past six months has been interesting is understating things. Becoming lactose intolerant, and with time more sensitive to foods I was consuming, was quite a learning curve. With the help of a dietitian in mid-December I finally managed to overcome an important hurdle, sadly though it was too late by then as it has caused my body damage.

My GP referred for a colonoscopy to check what was going on, which I had yesterday. Following my checkup I was recommended to commence a low FODMAP diet, which I read removes foods that are known to cause issues, then after 2-6 weeks when all has calmed down, you begin the process of reintroducing gradually from each group and diarising how you respond.

Whilst I await more detailed test results and a visit to my GP, I’m going to trial going to the elimination phase. I stood this morning at Woolworths in the breads section trying to locate a suitable bread. No spelt here. I ended up going for a gluten-free option as the Monash University app seemed to hint this was the preferred option, just limit to two slices. Sadly, when I visited the Brumby’s bakery, the one I was hoping for as listed on their website wasn’t available. I think my local IGA has better choices, so it looks like grocery shopping will be a bit all over the place going forward.
