Please note that this list assumes that you are already following a Paleo diet. All foods and beverages that should be avoided on the Paleo diet, such as grains (wheat, oats, corn, etc.), should also be avoided here.

Important tips for optimal GI health during your time on a low-FODMAP diet:

  • Liver from pastured animals one to two times weekly will help to replenish your vitamin B12, iron, and other nutrients you may be deficient in due to dysbiosis.
  • Homemade bone broths can be very healing for the GI tract.
  • Meats are most easily digested when prepared at low cooking temperatures, using moist cooking techniques. Consider using a slow-cooker, stewing, braising or poaching for at least 30 days.
  • Vegetables should be well-cooked with any seeds removed to improve digestibility; minimize your intake of raw, fibrous fruits and vegetables. For more information on this, see:


  • Be very careful when eating out, and consider calling ahead to ask about preparation methods and ingredients to find an option that works for you.
