It's a diet designed to identify trigger foods for IBS so that you can avoid them. It is not a long-term diet as its very restrictive - but its basically stripping back your diet and the reintroducing foods to work out of something upsets you, up to a full diet again so you know what to avoid.

If you google FODMAP or low FODMAP diet it will bring it all up. I was told to see a dietician who specializes in it, but I kinda knew my triggers so just avoided them. Basically they're foods that reduce the chance of inflammation in the gut.

Anyone suffer with ibs or similar?
I too suffer from IBS and have been diagnosed with mild colitis. I am also intolerant to most fruit or should I say the 'fructose' in it, wine and juice etc. I suffer when I am most stressed and also when my diet is not good. It goes without saying that I don't eat much spice, rich foods (such as anything cooked in fat or oil) also affect me quite badly, I avoid coffee and my milk intake is minimal. Alcohol can also cause flare ups as does onion and garlic.
I have been on medication in the past but as I have been actively TTC with IVF and/or pregnant for the last few years I have not been able to take it so have managed the bad flare ups with dietary changes. I suffer mainly from loose bowel movements which never really change but can be manageable when I am strict with what I'm eating. I definitely second getting a referral to a gastro if you are finding this is a recurring issue. Hope your doing ok, it can be a very debilitating situation. x
ETA- I followed the FODMAP diet with the help of a dietitian in order to work out my triggers by process of elimination.

I get IBS (is associated with some medications that I take) ... and yes I get bloated, diarreah, constipation and other lovely stuff like that.
I control it mainly with diet and lifestyle. Regular excercise (nothing too much, but a bit) helps ... but mainly just avoiding my trigger foods.
It took quite a while to identify what foods were triggering ... process of elimination really.
- Milk - I can have some milk, but too much of it (and any full cream milk) sets me off
- wine - the preservatives in wine affect me greatly. Champagne is ok (well, good champagne. some cheap champagne is bad)
- cereal and super high fibre foods - too much fibre gives me constipation, and then diarreah straight after
- some fruits
Also I cant eat too much first thing in the morning. It seems to take my digestive system a little while to wake up.

I'm also currently diagnosed IBS, the swinging from diahorrea to constipation type. I'm waiting for a colonoscopy to rule out anything else. So far I know that I can't drink milk or I'll get constipated, coffee and alcohol will set me off in the other direction. There is other triggers that I haven't worked out yet
