I have a number of books on the low FODMAP diet (five so far). Most of the information I had researched online, but each of the books I have purchased contributed something (however small) new to my knowledge. However, knowledge is one thing; execution is something completely different. I can honestly say that of all the low FODMAP books I have - most of which has at least a few recipes in them - this book is by FAR my favorite and my automatic go-to cookbook. Some of the others include ingredients I know are not permitted, or only in small amounts, but no explanation or clarification is given. With the Everything Guide, though, there are tips, tricks, explanations, and helpful information sprinkled in with the recipes themselves. The recipes are clearly described and extremely tasty.
Most of my family were a little unsure about this new way of eating, as I'm the only one with the gut issues, but I try a new recipe out of this book a few times a week and every single one...
I have had IBS for five years, and for the first year, I was going out of my mind trying to figure out what was causing the horrible pain and other symptoms associated with it. I knew it had to be caused by what I was eating, but just couldn’t pinpoint the trigger foods, and my doctors were no help. Then I read a news article about research that linked “high FODMAPs” foods with IBS and gave the diet a try. It worked! But trying to stick with the diet, and not really knowing how much of a “bad” food I could tolerate, or trying to prepare long-time favorite dishes and having to leave out some of the main ingredients because I can no longer digest them, have been difficult. I was so excited to find this book! Without getting overly detailed, it first discusses how these foods are not digested properly by people who have IBS and cause the painful symptoms. It then gives some practical advice to help you get your life back to normal while eliminating...
Finally, real help for IBS. This diet works if you follow it as recommended. I also suggest buying the phone app from Monash University, it comes in handy when you're dining out or at the grocery store. I saw real relief within the first week and I have been suffering with severe IBS for years and I've tried every diet out there (even gluten free and the Specific Carbohydrate Diet). They are also constantly updating their findings on their web site. For severe IBS suffers, I recommend reading the book and not just downloading the list of foods to eliminate.
