“A must-have survival guide” —Gerard E. Mullin, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine and Director of Integrative GI Nutrition Services at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
“What can I do to feel better?” For years, millions of adults who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) have asked this question, often to be met with scientifically unfounded or inadequate advice.
The low-FODMAP diet is the long-awaited answer. In clinical trials, over three quarters of people with chronic digestive symptoms gain significant relief by reducing their intake of FODMAPs—difficult-to-digest carbs found in foods such as wheat, milk, beans, soy, and certain fruits, vegetables, nuts, and sweeteners.
In The Complete Low-FODMAP Diet, Sue Shepherd and Peter Gibson explain what causes digestive distress, how the low-FODMAP diet helps, and how to:
• Identify and avoid foods high in FODMAPs
• Develop a personalized and sustainable low-FODMAP diet
• Shop, menu plan, entertain, travel, and eat out with peace of mind
• Follow the program if you have IBS, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, or diabetes, and if you eat a vegetarian, vegan, low-fat, or dairy-free diet.
And, with 80 delicious low-FODMAP, gluten-free recipes, you can manage your symptoms, feel great, and eat well—for life.
A diet to assist the body with digestive issues.
The authors admit there is ongoing research into the right foods to eat. Every body is different so experimentation with different foods is the key. A good place to begin when trying to eliminate those foods your body rejects. The author
explains the process of finding which foods are right for your your digestive system. A 14 day menu is included.
Excellent information. The FODMAP diet provides 10 common signs that you might have a digestive disorder and then proceeds to explain which foods to eat and to avoid. I enjoyed that they really explained the science behind what is actually happening in your gut and why it can lead to digestive issues. This book also provides valuable recipes and a 14 day menu meal plan. Even though it was strict, I enjoyed how thorough it was.
