The Fodmapper

This time last year, I had recently started the FODMAP diet and was seriously struggling – daunted by the never-ending list of banned foods and frustrated by the difficulty of eating out. Aware of the benefits of the diet, I was determined to motivate myself to stick to it. I wanted to introduce others with similar issues to the FODMAP diet so they too could help themselves to feel better. So with a little creativity and a lot of spare time, The Fodmapper was born.

A little nervous that no one would be interested in what I had to say and that my poor cooking abilities would prevent me from making anything edible, let alone appetising, I began to write, cook and, of course, eat.

12 months and 57 posts later, I am delighted to have received over 30,000 views in 90 countries and to have built up an amazing and supportive Instagram following of almost 5,000 people – something I never would’ve imagined possible a year ago. The best bit about about writing my blog is the messages and emails I’ve received thanking me for helping fellow-IBS sufferers – these messages are hugely appreciated! I’ve also loved joining the community of fodmappers and health bloggers and have learnt so much from them. I now really enjoy devising new recipes, teaching others about health and nutrition and reassuring fellow-fodmappers that the diet isn’t as limiting as it initially seems.

So, time to take a trip down memory lane and reflect on my most viewed blog posts of the year:
