Suffer from IBS. You need FODMAP.

The Low FODMAP diet was developed by researchers at Monash University in Australia. The Monash team, led by Peter Gibson, provided the first evidence that a Low FODMAP diet improves IBS symptoms. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common functional gastrointestinal disorder common in the USA, Australia, Europe and many Asian countries.

IBS is characterised by chronic and relapsing symptoms; lower abdominal pain and discomfort, bloating, wind, distension and altered bowel habit (ranging from diarrhoea to constipation) but with no abnormal pathology. The diagnosis of IBS should be made by a medical practitioner.
