Diet Help and Advice

So my GI has now put me on a low fodmap (so canned peaches and applesauce are out), low carb (due to bloating and gas), low fibre diet and I am like, what am I supposed to eat?????? Any advice would be helpful. I'm thinking a little bit of orange juice, eggs, banana chocolate peanut butter smoothies with protein powder (is a little bit of spinach ok? what about peeled seedless cucumber?) plain fish, chicken, well cooked carrots and green beans??? peeled zucchini noodles and low fodmap tomato sauce. Would mashed turnips or parsnips also be ok? What about well cooked broccoli heads only? I can't do dairy or gluten (have been gluten sensitive since a kid) though I am eating lactose free greek yogurt. @my little penguin I picked up some miralax and took my first dose today. Hoping it helps with my ongoing hard stools. I will need surgery on my stricture but have to get this inflammation fully under control first.
