Healthy eating in Dubai - best dishes

Do you know what fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols are? No? Don't worry, neither do we, but the Fodmap, as it might be better known to you, is tipped to be one of the diet trends of 2016.

The Fodmap diet basically suggests that certain sugar types may not be well digestible by all stomachs and there could be many people with an intolerance to specific sugars. Reducing the intake of them could make you healthier and be part of an effective weight-loss regime.

These are claims we’ve heard before. Gluten-free, paleo, vegan, no carbs, no sugar, no fat, probiotic. Whatever the name and no matter the suitability for each individual, there has been much, seemingly contradictory, reporting of what is considered healthy in recent years.

The problem for health-conscious diners can be knowing what to eat. Butter, for so long a condemned dairy product, we are now informed by scientists, is okay. Carbohydrates, on the other hand, should be pushed away like gone-off meat at a barbecue. Unless you have a nutritionist friend to take around with you and advise you on what to order, it can be tough to choose without going crackers.
