  • Chocolate & IBS don't seem to go well together. Not sure why. If I eat it plain, it's bad. With other things, not so much, but maybe that's because there's less of it. I think a chocolate-free Whole30 would probably be a good idea. Are there any dried fruits that are low FODMAPS that you could snack on?

    • FODMAPS guidelines are to avoid all dried fruit because of the concentrated sugars.

      • Tomi, if you are having afternoon/evening cravings for sugar, I suggest supplementing L-glutamine. I put a tsp. of the powder form under my tongue in the evening to head off the carb monster. Now I take it in three doses throughout the day.

        • I can't really say I crave carbs. I just crave a snack. I don't have anything to snack on except what we have in the house that is supposed to be for hubby. Oreo's and m&m's. I guess I should get more cashews since that's my go to snack when I have it available. We have corn chips - but I've been fighting the urge to go for those since its a "habit" that I'm breaking. Purhaps I should make SNACKING a habit to break - then I won't have to worry about it.

          I mean............... is there a HEALTHY snack that won't hurt my stomach, give me diarrhea or make me bloated?

          Too bad popcorn is supposed to be a no no food. But I think for the sake of avoiding the painful snacks I might consider eating popcorn again.

          I've looked at all the paleo snack foods - I can't find any that aren't chocolate, nuts or some nut flour. Or fruit which is also a thing I'm trying to stay away from. Its pretty stupid............ I will resist buying things that I know are not on my list of "ok" foods --- unless they things hubby wants. And he always wants oreos and m&ms. I'll buy those for him......... but then those are the only thing in the house to nibble on in the evenings when I want something to snack on.

          If I eat a filling, satisfying dinner I don't really want a snack -- but last night we had sushi -- and you know what happens with sushi - 45 minutes after you eat - you're hungry again.

          Maybe I should make sweet potato fries in the evening? I guess that would be a healthy thing to snack on I'll have to give that some thought............. sweet potato fries or butternut fries - even white potato fries would be 1000 times better than going for the m&ms!!!

          • If you get organic corn kernels and pop your own, I don't think popcorn is so bad. I just did that for the first time tonight and it was good. I knew exactly what I was eating... popped corn kernels, coconut oil, and sea salt.

            • Does corn bother you? If not, popcorn is the least of your worries.

                    • Pork rinds are my go-to nibbly when I want crunchy. Corn stuffs up my sinuses or I'd eat popcorn.

                      • I just ordered some off amazon that's organic. Worked okay, going to try heating the oil first next time though as some of it burned.

                          I find it interesting that the green onions are allowed. I have found this to be true for my cooking

                          • What about jerky as a snack?

                            • I second the pork rinds for the occasional snack for curbing salty-crunchy cravings. I too got burned out on them after over-indulging early in my VLC time. That's why I now recommend occasionally using them (if that's even possible). The ones from the Mexican markets are the best, IMHO. Oven roasted kale is also a great snack. My "secret" to getting past sweet cravings (I was a huge m&m lover in my SAD days) is coffee with heavy cream and sf sweetener. Not exactly paleo by any means but it helped me tremendously on my journey from 254# to my current 178# (6'1"). Now that I have lost my excess body fat and reduced my insulin, I am eating paleo to tweak my health for the rest of my life. I'm a LADA so low carbing will always be part of my lifestyle. For me, everyone is different, cutting out all grains and cereals plus added sugars was the only way I could completely eliminate the IBS, asthma, seasonal and pet allergies, and fungal infections that plagued me (I believe as a consequence of my autoimmune disease). Thank you so much for your input on fibromyalgia. My wife has suffered from this malady for 15 years and I hope I can get her off the nasty Rx drugs. Keep up the good work.
