I've been on the fodmap diet since September last year, (with help from an nhs dietitians) I have gained about 3 stone since I have been on it. I gain weight through out my trips to the Dietition too. It's helped with bloating and my mental health is better but I am sick of this weight gain, I am doing more exercise than ever before so I don't know what's wrong!

Anyone with a simular expereince?

@Funtimelem Were you able to find a way to make FODMAP work in the end, without weight gain?

I lost a little weight on the FODMAP diet, about 9lb. Mainly because I ate out more often before going on it. When I was on a FB group for the diet a few of the people had unexpected weight loss and that seemed more common than a gain. Do you think you may simply be eating more now because the previous bloating was putting you off eating? Have you reintroduced the different Fodmaps yet? I assume you would have done and are now on a modified diet if you have dietician support.
