A low FODMAPs diet has been clinically shown to relieve symptoms. There are doubts about it’s long-term benefits. Starving beneficial bacteria obviously isn’t a solution to anything. It’s kind of like those drugs for osteoarthritis that relieve symptoms while contributing to the destruction of cartilage – the source of the pain.
I can’t comment on the other diet but the question has to be why you’re sensitive to these things rather than just how to avoid them.
One protocol can’t possibly work for everyone, but in my view GI problems are ultimately resolved by restoring balance to the microbiota. Any approach that achieves this is worth pursuing.
People with candida overgrowth obviously need to take special precautions, so this discussion is only really relevant to people who haven’t had a proper diagnosis.
