Viviana

    • Don’t use past negative experiences with doctors and nutritionists to infer what this experience will be like. ModifyHealth is welcoming, supportive, and helpful in every way. There’s very little to be anxious about, this is coming from an extremely anxious person.
     
    How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
     
    • Before the program, my GI issues affected my school, sports, and personal life greatly. I had to base my schedule everyday on how long I might be in the bathroom. I either had to get in trouble at guard for being in the bathroom too long or choose to hurt during practice. Most of the time, I decided not to eat until my day was done or I had a couple hours before my next activity.
    •  
    What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
     
    Most of those problems are completely gone. My stomach aches are manageable if even existent now. I’m never in the bathroom for an unusual amount of time. I feel lighter, better, and healthier.

    • My specific instructor, Nikki, was the most helpful instructor I have ever had. She made this experience less scary, easy to understand, and enjoyable. She was an amazing listener and always gave me the tools I needed to improve.

Patsy

    • I would highly recommend this to anyone with GI issues. This food is an answer for anyone who struggles with portion control or wants to eat clean and healthy without the hassle of meal planning and shopping. My health has greatly improved in the last few months and I believe I have escaped type two diabetes because of this Low FODMAP diet. The food is tasty and satisfying. I never feel deprived or hungry.
     
    How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
     
    • I was eating the same foods everyday and my doctor recommended I expand my food selection and eat more fiber, but I had such a “love-hate” relationship with food all my life and never knew what would cause pain and bathroom issues. Frankly, I had nearly given up. It took a few weeks, but now my life is soooo much better. I only wish I had had this food service several years ago.

    What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
     
    I no longer have a struggle with what to eat and look forward to my next meal.

    • Thank you ModifyHealth!

Maurice

    • If you stay strictly with these meals you will eliminate your GI problems. The Low-FODMAP meals are safe and will keep your tummy pain free. The variety is good and it is tasty and easy.
     
    How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
     
    • There were many days when I was up all night and it still happens when I eat anything but these meals. ModifyHealth has really identified what makes me sick and these meals are a solution. I have had to miss days at the office and many other activities before. Now as long as I stick to these meals I am ok.
    •  
    What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
     
    When I stick to only these meals I am free of pain and having to travel with a bathroom.
  •  
    Is there any additional information you would like to share about your story?

    • It is not easy to give up all those other foods, not at all, but ModifyHealth really helps. I now know that if I just eat these and nothing else I will not get sick. And yes it is very tempting to eat other foods but the price to pay in pain and discomfort is high. I hope you find a way to be pain free and GI trouble free. This is definitely a good start.

R.D.

    • You won’t regret your decision to try ModifyHealth. I had the hardest time coming to grips with my IBS and coming up with meals everyday, but ModifyHealth had taken all that worry away. I’ve been using it for 4 months now and it’s changed my life completely. I no longer have serious bouts of IBS and I’ve even lost 10 lbs. I can actually remember what it’s like to feel normal again.
     
    How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
     
    • Before beginning ModifyHealth I would have embarrassing bouts of gas everyday, would be bloated to the point it looked like I was five months pregnant, and would even vomit on occasion. All of that has now gone away.

    What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
     
    Now I can live life normally without being bloated and worrying about being gassy all the time.

    If you’re struggling keeping to a low fodmap diet and at your wits end with your symptoms, give ModifyHealth a try. It relieves the worry of what to eat and will get you back to living normally.

Eric

    • For the peace of mind, and reduction of symptoms, it really is worth trying.
     
    How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
     
    The range of issues I had with IBS was extensive. It was hard to sleep, focus, work, and many other things. If you read the literature about IBS or IBD, it is really something that you need to take seriously and take proper care of.
     
    What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
     
    ModifyHealth has helped free up my time. As someone who works in a hospital, I really have enjoyed having less to worry about at home.

    The customer service is exceptional at ModifyHealth, they addressed all of my concerns right away.

C.G.

    • GI issues can be really confusing. If you've gone through the gauntlet of doctors and tests and nothing seems to solve the problem, the Low FODMAP protocol is definitely worth investigating. And ModifyHealth is simply the easiest, most satisfying way to go.
     
    How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
     
    The discomfort made it difficult to concentrate during the day, and I could barely sleep at night. I was terrified of everything I ate.
     
    What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
     
    I can sleep. I can focus on what I want to be focusing on. I can eat fearlessly, and enjoy every bite again.

    The dietitian I connected with through ModifyHealth is an angel, and I'm so glad I made use of her services and insights.

Laura

    • Making the decision to go with ModifyHealth was such an important part of my journey. I hesitated at first because I had spent so much money on treatment but I finally took the step of faith. If you are looking for a place to not have to "figure out what to eat" and have the help and support of a nutritionist I highly suggest this route!
     
    How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
     
    I was bloated all the time, lacked energy, brain fog, stomach pain, gas and some constipation. I was miserable.
     
    What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
     
    I was able to identify what my trigger foods were and avoid them. Now my stomach is 80% better than what it was. I am so thankful for this!

As a middle-aged male with family history with GI-related diseases, I have begun exhibiting symptoms requiring more intensive interactions with the GI medical specialists and generally becoming more aware of day-to-day disruptions due to IBS.

My IBS is diminishing.

  • It is definitely worth doing the package with the dietitian support - makes a huge difference to getting elimination and re-introduction phases work. I couldn't imagine doing this either without the pre-made meals - it was a great way to be introduced to eating fodmap free in a hassle-free way (I have 3 kids so don't have time for new diet cooking!)
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
Discomfort and pain.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
Feel more aware of when I have eaten something that disagrees with me and why. Feel more able to make good decisions about eating.

Nope - just thanks

Tina

  • It is well worth your time and money to try this service out. The meals are well-balanced and make it easy to adhere to what can be a very difficult and confusing diet. I would recommend that you sign up for the added option of the dietitian consult. Having a dietitian I could talk to at any point along the journey was an absolute game changer for me and well worth the extra money.
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
I missed out on social activities, had to take time off of work and my mental health suffered before I found ModifyHealth. I was trying to follow a low FODMAP diet on my own, but kept making small mistakes that would ultimately lead to days and weeks of pain that repeatedly disrupted my day to day life.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
I am much happier, feel healthier, and feel much more in control and more knowledgeable about how to take care of myself and how to handle my GI system. I am able to plan social activities without fear of my symptoms derailing my plans and have not had to take any time off of work because of my health.
 
Is there any additional information you would like to share about your story?

Prior to finding ModifyHealth, I had tried for years to figure out what was happening to my body. I tried a variety of approaches to eliminating foods I thought I couldn't tolerate without lasting success. I found out about the low FODMAP diet through a medical colleague and attempted to navigate the diet on my own for a few months, but was unsuccessful. I then found a different company that provided low FODMAP meals, but did not offer the option of working with a dietician. With the help of that company, I did manage to get some of my symptoms under control, but I had no one to systematically and properly guide me through the reintroduction phase, which hindered my ability to complete the process of discovering the FODMAPs I can and cannot tolerate. After several attempts at doing this on my own with my own research to guide me, I almost gave up and decided I would just have to deal with being in pain all the time. As a last-ditch effort, I googled "low FODMAP meal delivery" and found ModifyHealth. I decided to try it because of the option to work with a dietitian and it made all the difference for me. My dietitian, Christine, listened to my story, explained the basis of the low FODMAP diet, checked in with me on a regular basis, walked me through the entire reintroduction process, helped me understand my results and sent me multiple resources to help me transition into a diet that will work for me moving forward. I owe this program and Christine more thanks than I can express and would recommend this service to anyone dealing with IBS symptoms who is struggling to go through the process. This company, the food they provide, and the program they offer have given me my life back! Thank you, ModifyHealth!!!

Allison

  • This made my life so much easier while trying to eliminate high FODMAP foods from my diet and then reintroducing them one at at time. I was able to rest easy knowing that my daily lunch and dinners were going to be safe for me to eat without any discomfort and I was able to really learn what FODMAPs caused me the most abdominal distress.
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
I was extremely uncomfortable during my work day as well as when I worked out. I would get these terrible pains and it would completely immobilize me for short periods of time. I had no idea what the cause was so after a series of tests (blood, breath, etc) it was recommended I look into the low FODMAP "diet" and ModifyHealth was the first thing I signed up for.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
My stress level has decreased immensely especially because I don't cook well. I already have my meals planned out for me so I worry less about what I will eat and will it cause me discomfort. I work out now without the cramping and am learning so much about different foods and how they effect peoples digestion process.

In 2008, I lost 110lbs on Weight Watchers. Since then, I have always lived with a "weight watcher" mentality that all fruits and vegetables are zero points and you can eat as much as you want of them until you are full. Never did I think that foods I considered healthy would cause me so much discomfort. I had to reshape my thinking throughout this entire process and realized that even healthy foods can cause stomach trouble. I have been able to maintain my weight loss since 2008 and still while enjoying the delicious meals prepared by ModifyHealth!

Jennifer

  • This company was a God-send! Having a fructose and lactose intolerance for years has been so overwhelming. It is so hard to find good, filling foods without GI irritants. I used to just deal with the pain/discomfort and assumed that is just my norm. I have no pain and discomfort after eating these meals, and I feel so full! I am a huge fan and so grateful for this company. And the customer service rocks!
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
I was in constant pain and discomfort everyday, and couldn't wait to get home to lay down and get relief.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
  • I don't have to stress about preparing foods that will agree with my body. I have delicious, filling meals ready to go. And the best part is that I have zero pain and discomfort after eating. I truly forgot what that felt like.

Debi

  • I have found ModifyHealth to be the answer. I am educated in nutrition and have been diligent in providing for myself a balanced life. I only recently started to understand and learn the particulars of how to actually tailor a diet to be low FODMAP and put that in practice. I am 62 and low FODMAP diets are relatively new and pretty complicated to discern from a mere list of foods. ModifyHealth takes all the complexity out of the equation, provides a ready to eat organic fresh delicious low FODMAP meals no fuss no muss. I have seen first hand the positive impact immediately. I believe in a wholistic approach to healing. ModifyHealth meals have given me back the ability to eat hearty and head towards feeling great. I have even seen relief of nerve pain, headaches and sinus irritation. I am grateful! ModifyHealth has greatly improved the day to day quality of my life.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
I am refocusing on what I love in life: people, hobbies, ranging from reading to weight lifting and playing chess with my grandson.

I am gaining an education via the nutritionist consultation and composition of meals which I will take forward as part of my daily life. It is precious.

  • Try it out. It really made a difference for me.

Emotionally it was draining me. I felt like I couldn't eat anything or go anywhere.

It helped me identify triggers and it helped me do the low FODMAP diet in an easier way.

I have had bad IBS for years as well as my gallbladder removed. Doing this diet worked better than any supplement I was taking!

BL

  • Just do it. You won't regret it.
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
Once my symptoms started I had just had my daughter and she was a couple months old. There were a few times where my symptoms were so bad I had to lay in bed and couldn't move due to the nausea. Even on days my symptoms weren't that bad I just still didn't feel right and my wife noticed I just seemed down and different. There were also a few times where I had to leave work early because I felt so sick.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
After I started ModifyHealth I noticed a change immediately. After eating just those meals the first two days I could tell instantly I felt better. All around I feel better and I stopped taking the anti-depressants my doctor put me on because I didn't feel I needed them anymore. I also wanted to get accurate results when I started adding foods back in to see which caused my symptoms to flare up. I love that I didn't have to worry about going places or doing things away from home in fear of having to get back home to go to the bathroom.
 
Is there any additional information you would like to share about your story?

If you have been told you have IBS and you have to figure out what causes your symptoms then you have to use ModifyHealth meals to get you started in the right direction because I know first hand trying to do all of it yourself is over-whelming especially when you don't feel good as it is.

Audrey

  • I was bloated (more than normal) w/terrible gas for a year until I started this diet. I tried to make balanced low fodmap meals but I always found it difficult to stick with basics so I messed up once a day which ruined everything. I also don't have time to worry about what Im eating, so these delicious meals are a godsend. Im now gas and bloat free (after 1 week of meals that happened).
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
It caused problems in my marriage.

I am SO appreciative that you exist. Especially now, it so happens, with Covid.

Andy

I have had GI issues for a good 15 years. Up and down. From reasonably ok to bed ridden for months. My last issue had me in bed for 2 weeks. Could barely eat. I was told about ModifyHealth and already understood a lot about the Low FODMAP diet. But being able to not only order fresh meals shipped to my house, but to be able to work with a GI dietitian, Christine, I have gone from massively bloated and burping nonstop to having a flat stomach and nearly no gas within 2-3 weeks time! I’ve missed out on SO many kids sports, events, parties, family birthdays, i couldn’t even count. We have an Ohio State vs Michigan party every year at this time for the big football game. Many years we have cancelled it or just not even planned it. This year i was fully able to plan the party and have all of our friends and family over for it! ModifyHealth has truly been a life changer/saver for me. Absolutely priceless!
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
I was affected a lot. Burping constantly. You cannot even work in an office (thankfully i work from home and go on mute a LOT during my meetings). Stomach bloat was so bad i couldn’t wear jeans. Sick in bed, often.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
It’s made a WORLD of difference! I’m attending all of my kids sports, not missing out on family things, able to do most anything I want now!

Kayla

My husband tried to convince me for years to work with a dietitian to help me in my low fodmap journey but I was stubborn and thought it was silly to pay someone to help me with what I could research online myself for free... I was stuck in the elimination phase for four years... I knew low fodmap helped me but I was still not feeling well most days. There were missing pieces and my dietitian helped me understand everything so much better! I have had more good days in this journey than I’ve had cumulative in the last year! ModifyHealth has given me knowledge and hope that I can not only tackle some of these issues but find enjoyment in food as well!
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
My symptoms would come on in the evening time, generally when my husband would come home from work. My go to would be to lay on the couch and watch him enjoy time with our boys. But because I feel better, I get to jump in on it too!
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
I can engage more with my kids during the day instead of spending so much time prepping and researching what food items I can/can’t have.

I’m thankful to feel like I have knowledge and power to live a different life than the symptom heavy one I felt trapped in.

Nancy

I had been having a LOT of pain with my IBS-D. My doctor recommended trying the low FODMAP diet. I am busy and single, so cooking healthy - let alone a new and confusing meal plan was just too much for me. ModifyHealth has been a godsend because of that. Healthy, low FODMAP foods that are vacuum-sealed arrive every week. I toss one into the microwave and 2 minutes later it's ready to eat. It couldn't be simpler. My pain is not quite gone, but it is GREATLY improved. Best decision I have made. Do it!
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
Sometimes I had pain so bad that I really couldn't work because it was tough to stand or do anything other than curl up in a ball. Now, much, much better.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
Pain is not quite gone - but it is 100x better. My diarrhea is gone. I'm having NORMAL bowel movements again. That alone makes this worth it!
 
Is there any additional information you would like to share about your story?

I was concerned about the cost of the food - it's more than I would normally pay. However, before I had to go to the store and spend time shopping, looking at the ingredients, then spend time at home preparing the food. Now I don't spend that time. That to me made up the difference in the cost and made this a no-brainer for this busy single lady!

Ashley

If you are struggling with GI issues and/or feeling overwhelmed with the low FODMAP diet, I cannot fully express how much I recommend ModifyHealth. My quality of life is so much better. I am no longer in constant pain. I am not vomiting after every meal. I am no longer scared to eat. Yes, I had to rework my budget to allow for the price point but the meals fill me up (I sometimes have leftovers) and are delicious. Also, you cannot put a price on your quality of life. Less medications, less doctors' visits, less missed work, less missed time with friends and family. I am slowly getting my life back.
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
They started out as just embarrassing... burping all the time, etc. Not exactly attractive for dating or professional at work. The symptoms grew to be excruciating pain... I would throw up and would always need to know where the nearest bathroom was. I was trapped by my symptoms.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
I am able to be active again. I really enjoy being out in my yard and DIY projects. I can spend hours out there without any worry.

I grew up with a large Italian family in Texas. The idea of giving up large portions of the main ingredients of Italian and Mexican cooking was very scary and disappointing to me. I learned there is more than one way to create those flavors and your body will thank you for it. Don't avoid feeling better because of the cost or your "favorite" foods. Your life will be changed for the better.

Joey

How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
Being bloated and uncomfortable every day makes you operate from a place of annoyance and pain as a baseline. It saps your energy. For me specifically, it created a negative feedback loop with depression and anxiety. It meant I always needed to know I had easy access to bathrooms. and honestly, it probably negatively affected my interpersonal relationships the most, since I was much more likely to be irritable.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
I don't always stick as closely to a low FODMAP diet as I should and even at my best I'm not entirely without symptoms, but sticking to it as much as I can has seriously reduced my pain and discomfort, and helps me approach the world with more energy and a more positive outlook. ModifyHealth makes sticking to the diet a heck of a lot easier.

Dana

How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
I have been through two colonoscopies and two CT scans within the past five years. Doctors offered no solutions. I have suffered with gut pain (5 years) after every time I would awake up morning, afternoon or night, it made no difference what time it was, the key was if I slept I would awake with pain in my lower gut. I started the ModifyHealth diet and got immediate relief in the first two days and it has just kept getting better. I am very glad I made this investment. NO MORE PAIN!
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
I'm able to sleep again. And wake up pain free!
 
Is there any additional information you would like to share about your story?

I was skeptical, but I'm happy I didn't let that stop me from trying this solution. ModifyHealth's Customer Care is very helpful and attentive to customers.

E.S.

  • I think this would have been too much to manage on my own, so I'm extremely grateful for the lunches and dinners provided by ModifyHealth. I felt better less than a week after removing all high FODMAP foods.
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
My digestive issues were causing pain, discomfort and embarrassment in my everyday life - at work, in yoga classes, etc. It was affecting my life more than I realized!
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
  • I can make it through the day without having the urgency/worry of being able to find a bathroom. I have less pain, allowing me to sleep better and be more productive. I am also a lot less bloated, so my clothes fit better.

The dietitians are incredibly helpful and the program is clear and easy-to-follow. It's kind of foolproof! During this coronavirus pandemic, I've had additional peace of mind that a variety of healthy meals are coming to me and I don't have to venture out to the store as often. My digestion gets worse during stressful times, so I can't even imagine how much pain I would be in if I didn't have these meals!

A.C.

There was so much about my diet that I didn't realize was affecting my gut. I tried finding solutions on my own, eating certain "healthy foods" that I thought would cure my GI issues, but I could never have felt as good as I do now without the help of ModifyHealth.
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
As a college student, I found that my GI issues were adding to my stress. It was hard to plan ahead on social outings because I didn't know if my stomach would be up for it.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
I feel like I have better control over my gut and I am able to experience more without worrying about how my stomach might feel later.
 
Is there any additional information you would like to share about your story?

The biggest help from this program is having a dietitian support you along the way. I had a ton of questions regarding foods to avoid and portion sizes, and it makes the process a lot easier being able to communicate them throughout the program.

Alyssa

ModifyHealth has helped me control my symptoms. The meals are an easy way to ensure that you are following the FODMAP diet. I found it difficult to cook the meals on my own, but by seeing the ingredients/portions I have been able to determine what to eat at home as well. I think it is a great way to gain control of your body and symptoms.
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
My symptoms were so severe that I'd often have to leave work and social engagements early. It was embarrassing and uncomfortable.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
I have been able to control my symptoms and regain control of my life.

I had tried all types of medicine and dietary solutions prior to ModifyHealth and never had any results. I am very thankful to have found ModifyHealth!

Megan

Do it! You will get relief for your symptoms and a better understanding of what specific food groups your body doesn’t like. That way you can enjoy the things that aren’t your triggers! Now that I’ve discovered that dairy wasn’t the only culprit on my diet, I have the ability to avoid other foods that make me miserable!
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
I was afraid to eat things at parties. I never wanted to go out to eat. I hated how bad my gas smelled in public. I had to RUN to the bathroom in the middle of class (I am a teacher), and I felt TERRIBLE for anyone that went in there after me.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
I can eat out with confidence! I’m not afraid to tell people about any restrictions I have. I am less embarrassed to ask for certain dietary needs. I can go to parties or cook for people and choose what is safe for me. I don’t always have to be near a bathroom!

I also now know how much of an impact stress and my period have on my IBS. I know I need to prepare for those things and give myself grace during those times to avoid more flare ups.

Desiree

How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
I suffered from bloating, constipation and fatigue. It was a struggle to complete every day tasks such as getting dressed. Additionally, walking the dog and exercise was especially difficult.

Since participating in ModifyHealth I'm aware of the foods that disrupt my stomach. Eating the ModifyHealth meals was not only convenient but made me feel better. I no longer had IBS symptoms and my inflammation in my knees disappeared. Not only was my doctor pleased with my recent lab results but I lost weight.
 
Is there any additional information you would like to share about your story?

I realized that sticking with the ModifyHealth meal plans is the best option for me. It takes the guess work out of figuring out whats safe to eat and it is best for my overall health and well being.

S.B.

It was recommended that I try a low-FODMAP diet for my GI issues. I looked at doing this before ModifyHealth and felt it would be impossible. However, this program allowed me to try the diet and experience what it was like to feel better for the first time in years. It is well worth the cost, and decreased the difficulty tremendously.
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
I could often be found in a ball at home, holding something to my stomach, in an effort to reduce the pain. I often couldn't eat, and going out to eat was not my idea of a good time with friends. I work as a therapist and would often pray that I would make it to the end of the session without a problem, due to the urgency of the GI distress I experienced. I was miserable.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
When I do go out socially, I am not miserable, and can enjoy spending time with people I care about. I am no longer having to sit in my chair essentially holding my stomach during sessions and do not have to worry about getting to the end of the session without an issue. I am able to be more productive in my life as I am not in constant pain.

I just want other people to know that this is so worth doing. I did not realize the extent of my misery until I was not in constant pain.

I highly recommend for someone experiencing GI issues to consider trying the Low-FODMAP program. ModifyHealth has been one of the keys to my success. Knowing that ModifyHealth has already done the research to prepare a delicious, nutritious meal that is well packaged has greatly reduced the stress of figuring out the right foods to eliminate.
 
How were digestive issues impacting your day-to-day life before you began the ModifyHealth program?
 
For me, the issues that I was experiencing before using ModifyHealth were loose stools, bloating, gas and general discomfort. I was constantly in the restroom when I would go out and just had no idea of the impact of eating certain foods and the effect it was having on my health.
 
What difference has participating in the ModifyHealth program made in your day-to-day life?
 
Since joining ModifyHealth and receiving meals as well as a personal dietitian, I have learned so much about eating better as it relates to improving my gut health. I have made it through the elimination phase and ready to begin introducing items from the various food groups back in.

I’ve struggled with GI issues my entire life and tried everything from taking Imodium to various probiotics with little success. I’ve also seen huge improvements to my gut health by going on a Whole Food Plant-Based diet with huge improvements but not until now have I realized that eating nutritious isn’t enough. Now, I realize that there are still foods that while they may be healthy, may not necessarily good for my gut health.
