FODMAP Challenge Week 4: Sorbitol

The Challenge

This week's challenge group was sorbitol and I used avocado as my challenge food.  Peaches were another option I could have used but honestly I don't eat peaches very often whereas I eat avocado ALL the time, so that made the most sense to test.

The Results

OMG I FINALLY had 100% success with a challenge group!!  I actually ate avocado more often this week than you're really supposed to in a testing phase, but once you open an avocado you kind of had to eat it or it gets that disgusting brown color.  Anyway, even with overeating it things went really well.  No stomach pains or cramps, which I didn't really expect anyway and absolutely zero constipation.  If anything it made my life much more pleasant, and if this isn't too TMI to say, I was practically doing the George Jefferson strut out of the bathroom every day this week.  That's how pleased I was.

The Verdict

I am confident that I can eat avocado once the dust settles, which is really awesome since it's something I love.  Of course it won't be something I can eat a zillion of in one sitting since they do have so much fat, but it's nice to know I can add it back into my life.

Next week's test group is GOS and I'll be using green peas as my challenge food.  Wish me luck!
