There are many ways to learn more about FODMAPs, depending on your purpose, your budget and your time frame. You can certainly learn more about FODMAPs the way Patsy has, by reading hundreds of scientific papers a year and by traveling around the world to learn directly from scientists at Monash University in Australia (2013), the International Celiac Disease Symposium 2013 (Chicago), the SIBO Symposium 2014 (Portland, OR), Digestive Disease Week (2016 San Diego, 2017 Chicago), and GastroDiet2017 at Monash University in Prato, Italy (2015 and 2017).

 After almost 45 hours of travel Patsy finally arrived at Monash University in Australia, where she attended a  FODMAP seminar , met the Monash researchers, and delivered 80 loaves of U.S. bread to the FODMAP laboratory.

Excellent! I tried apps, online blogs & research, other books, and all I got was conflicting information. Ms Catsos explains why the conflicting information, gives seven days of menus, a shopping list for the week and recipes (surprisingly good). She teaches how to modify recipes, what foods should be in one’s pantry, and how to reintroduce foods. She explains how to customize the plan. She says not to graze & explains why. None of the blogs or books I read said this. That suggestion alone made a huge difference!
— Amazon reader review of The IBS Elimination Diet and Cookbook, October 30, 2017

Or, you can begin with some of the books, teaching tools and workshops that she has developed:

  • The IBS Elimination Diet and Cookbook (Harmony Books, 2017) has replaced IBS—Free at Last! This title is available wherever books are sold in North America.
  • IBS-Free Recipes for the Whole Family, written with recipe developer Lisa Rothstein and pediatric dietitian Karen Warman.
  • The Flavor without FODMAPs Cookbook (2014) contains 122 recipes suitable for the elimination phase of the FODMAP diet, along with a 2014 update on high- and low- FODMAP foods. It is available as a paperback, Kindle book, or Nook book. The everyday and special-occasion recipes in this book will help you get the most out of your low-FODMAP diet. Health care providers might provide or recommend this cookbook when teaching the elimination phase of the diet to patients.
  • Patsy Catsos is a continuing professional education provider for registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs), and a frequent speaker at professional association conferences. View upcoming workshops and talks here.
