Low-FODMAP + Paleo Autoimmune Protocol

Both the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) and the Low-FODMAP diet are a challenge to do on their own. Combining their restrictions is incredibly hard! So, why do it? Honestly, most people shouldn’t. We want to eat the widest variety of foods possible, because nutrient-density is essential to reversing autoimmune disease. However, there are two health conditions that sometimes accompany autoimmune disease: Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). A Low-FODMAP diet can be part of the treatment plan for these conditions. Only follow this diet if prescribed by your practitioner, and remember, it’s not meant to last forever. Just like the AIP, a Low-FODMAP diet has an elimination phase and a reintroduction phase, where you test your body against specific foods to see which ones you can safely add back into your diet. I compiled this recipe roundup for those of you combining these temporary protocols. My goal is to make it a little bit easier, and a lot more delicious!

Finding Accurate Food Lists

There’s a lot of misinformation on the internet when it comes to FODMAPS and the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol. Monash University is the world expert on Low-FODMAP diets, and they have an app that I recommend you use if you are following this protocol. Also, here’s an AIP Grocery List of allowed foods on the AIP. Cross-reference both lists when combining these diets, because many recipes on the internet are mis-labeled. However, with this recipe roundup, I cross-referenced these lists for you!

  1. Tóth-Váncsa Kinga

    Thank you very much for the helpful information. I have SIBO, Hashimoto and histamine intolerance, so I am glad I found your page. 🙂 (Kinga from Hungary, Budapest)

  2. This has all been so overwhelming. I’m glad i found this article with recipies. I’m currently on the AIP diet and now I’m trying to treat my SIBO. I felt my diet was already so limited and now half the stuff i was eating, i can no longer eat because I’m starting the SCD diet. I googled SCD diet/aip and no luck. I was about to cry, and then i found this article. Thanks!

    1. Hi Alisha. The SCD diet isn’t the same as Low-FODMAP. SCD is low-Starch instead. Either one can be used short-term as part of a SIBO protocol, but I don’t recommend combining all three of these diets together, because that’s too restrictive. Are you working with a practitioner? That’s important when treating SIBO because usually herbs or antibiotics are necessary in addition to the diet, for successful treatment. Listen to Episode 29 of my podcast for more SIBO information. Wishing you wellness!

  3. Hi! since I know myself I always have problems like cramps because of gas and bloating. For the first time, I went to doctor and did fodmap diet a month with some supplements and antibiotics. He told me that I have IBS. Bloating and gas problems are solved %90, but seeing mucus after or even with gas has remained… They say it is normal to see it because my GI tracks are full of gas and it makes bowel movements hard. However, every time I see it (especially when I see them the high amount, yellow-brownies color and smelling it makes me question myself that I have no problem why I see them? And, I always read if the mucus is in this form it means that there is an inflammation. Btw, I did the colonoscopy and almost every test. I am ready to try AIP any diet would help me. I just don’t know which to follow. I would be gratefu, if you could inform me about which diet to follow and if there is a solution for mucus.


    1. Hi Sinem. At this point, I recommend you consult with a functional medicine practitioner. There are many possible causes of your symptoms, and diet by itself is unlikely to resolve them. The tests you need are functional medicine gut tests – not the ones usually prescribed by a conventional MD. Here’s a link to practitioner directories: . And here are 2 podcasts you might find helpful: Episode 29: SIBO and Episode 42: Infections and Autoimmunity. Wishing you wellness.

  4. Thank you Eileen! You are so kind to take the time to answer me. I’ve been working with a functional medicine practitioner for the last year but he hasn’t been able to help with the gut or brain (just thyroid and hormones and adrenal fatigue). I have found a functional neurologist but he is out of state so I’m pondering on whether to just dive in after so many failed attempts with doctors. Thanks again for your response, it is pretty isolating when there are very few people who speak this “language.” I will continue to use your site and have seen you in several podcasts and I appreciate your willingness to help people.

    1. Hi Kristy,
      Dr Rosario is a Functional Neurologist in Sacramento Ca. at Functional Longevity Institute. They have a remote program.

  5. I have issues with all fish. It started with an anaphylaxis response to shellfish, then other salt water fish began to cause digestive issues and now freshwater fish does the same. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto. I eat gluten-free but have begun to have many digestive issues now and am considering AIP/Paleo. How do I address the issue of not being able to eat fish of any kind?

    1. Yvonne, you would just personalize your diet accordingly. There are plenty of other protein sources on the AIP, such as chicken, turkey, duck, bison, beef, venison, etc. In order to optimize your omega 3 ratio without seafood, be sure to prioritize grass-fed/pasture-raised animals. One other thought, though – sometimes histamine intolerance can be at play when you have trouble eating fish. If you’d like to learn more about that, listen to Episode 36 of my podcast.

    1. Your meaning of “the root cause” would be getting treatment for the brain injury before anything will help with the gut?

      1. I mean that diet alone is unlikely to resolve your issues. That’s why it would be great if you found a functional medicine practitioner who could help guide you. But those links I gave you will give you a headstart on what directions to pursue. Diet is definitely one piece- it’s just not every piece. Does that make sense?

  6. Thank you! I have been trying this on my own for about 6 months and haven’t been able to stick with it because I am always so hungry and have major blood sugar disregulation. In your opinion, how long does one eat AIP LowFODMAP before reintroducing? I keep starting it with no end in sight and it just seems impossible to me. I have been having gut problems for 5 years now (major bloating- even just eating zucchini) and my food sensitivities are off the chart- can’t even eat beef. I thought for sure I had SIBO but doctors will not agree with me. This all began with a traumatic brain injury- which immediately affected my gut. It has been a nightmare and I am discouraged because I have started and failed this diet so many times. Hopefully I can stick with it this time so I can start healing.

    1. Hi Kristy. I have heard of others with your exact experience – a brain injury affecting their digestion, since the gut-brain connection goes both ways. If your doctors say you don’t have SIBO, they are likely right, so a different diet and treatment protocol might be indicated instead. Would you consider consulting with one of the professionals at The Paleo Mom Consulting? Anne Angelone has been trained by Dr. Kharrazian, who is an expert in the gut-brain axis. She might be able to point you in a more helpful direction. I know it’s very frustrating to have symptoms with no relief in sight. Wishing you wellness in every way!

      1. Actually I met with Anne several times last year, but didn’t feel that she was able to help me. If I can’t handle FODMAPs whatsoever and I have reactions to pretty much everything except what is on AIP, I think that’s the way to go, whether I have SIBO or not. I have not come across anyone with brain injury affecting digestion, and I’ve done a lot of searching, so if you ever hear of anyone with a blog or something documenting their experience, I’d appreciate it if you shared. Thanks for your time!

        1. Kristy, my concern is that you won’t be able to get off this diet if you don’t address the root causes of your food sensitivities. If you want to do your own research, I recommend the book, Why Isn’t My Brain Working? by Dr. Datis Kharrazian. Here’s a paper he wrote on the TBI-Gut connection: And here’s an interview he did on traumatic brain injuries:

  7. OMG. Thank you so much!!! your an angel. I have Hashi and Sibo so this is perfect for me!!! Can’t thank you enough! Love your podcasts, so informative. I’m a big fan. 🙂
