Low FODMAP Fueling for Exercise Handout
Are you an athlete with digestive issues?
Exercise-induced gastrointestinal syndrome is common, occurring in >60% of athletes, particularly those competing in ultramarathons and multi-sport events such as triathlon. The fuel you use can make a big impact on digestion, and can affect your overall performance!
FODMAPs are short-chain, fermentable carbohydrates that can worsen digestive symptoms. Dietary FODMAP modification has shown some potential to reduce gastrointestinal symptoms in athletes at rest and during exercise.1
