Hi all- I am currently developing an app that is meant to help guide users through the low-FODMAP diet.
Brief Description of the app: Our app will have a meal planning feature that will offer the user a wide range of delicious low-FODMAP recipes to choose from and then generate a shopping list for them. The recipes are all inspired by the motto “food as medicine” to ensure that the patient is both healthy and adhering to the diet. Additionally, the app with have a symptom tracker and guided support during the Rechallenging phase of the diet.
Some things I am curious about:
1) Given that the low FODMAP diet is very restrictive I am curious if anyone has tried the low-FODMAP diet and thinks it is realistic for
patients to stick to a completely low-FODMAP diet for months?
2) What are your general thoughts about this app proposal and do you think it would be something you would use?
3) Finally, if you have tried the low-FODMAP diet: How did it go? What do you think would have made this an easier experience for you?
Appreciate any and all feedback, after all this app is being created to help improve the lives of those with IBS!
