I'm glad you found a nutritionist that would work for you. I went to 4 different ones for fructose malabsorption, and they all told me I should be able to eat stuff I couldn't digest. One locally didn't charge me because she said she learned more from me than I did from her. Funny, but that's how much fructose malabsorption is such a new area and I believe overlooked. The symptoms can be terrible.

I was fortunate to find someone who works with digestive disorders at a major medical center. Nobody knows what your body can tolerate until you try it in very small amounts for at least three days. That’s how we do it. What works for one person may be a no no for someone else. I can have maple syrup but no honey. Go figure! Idea of Low FODMAP is that it is strict and restrictive at first but you gradually add foods to the diet. Not meant to stay restrictive forever. I am adding one to two new foods now per week.
