Technically yeah. I haven?t tested all those groups perfectly, but a food in that group in addition to gluten makes my POIS worst. They are renowned for their lectins which can cause a host of autoimmune issues. So I figured I might as well omit them for a bit and see how it goes

Any specific food in that group? Can you eat boild and cooled potatoes? How about apples, I just had a very flatulent week and I've been eating 2 apples a day (hight fodmap). I can't do it anymore!

Hey so the primary indicator I am looking at is how my mood and severity of POIS is impacted from diet. I do not actually have any physical digestion problems or discomfort that I know of.

Gluten grains seems to be the absolute worst - even to the point of rendering my POIS solution basically useless. Then regular grains/pseudograins come in second, although because there is so many of them it's difficult to discern whether it's a select few or all of them in general. Due to the nature of what I am testing too, it's super subjective, making it very vulnerable to placebo.

Given that I personally have found a lot of benefit in eliminating these types of food groups i.e. grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, etc, I am going to be playing around with an anti-lectin diet and see how that goes. Haven't decided whether I am pairing it with ketogenic, although I probably will.

This is all in addition to raw minced garlic, fenugreek, etc for POIS.

If you could, try if you can tolerate millet porridge, I'm eating it every morning. Its low fodmap, low GI and less irritating on the intestines and more alkaline to the body then oat meal. 1 dm millet seeds in twice the water, bring it to boil, empty the water and add 1 new dl water and make it simmer for 10 minutes.

Yup it's on my todo list to try :). I am following Dr. Gundry's anti lectin diet
