The Complete Low-Fodmap Diet: A Revolutionary Plan for Managing Ibs and Other Digestive Disordersby Sue Shepherd
Synopses & Reviews
A diet plan proven to relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive disorders—presented by the world’s leading experts and tailored to you
The first and only scientifically proven diet for managing irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)--presented by the plan's world-leading experts.
"What can I do to feel better?" For years, patients with irritable bowel syndrome have asked doctors this question, and until now, no diet for managing IBS symptoms has ever been proven effective. Of the approximately 20 percent of adults who have IBS, most have had to resign themselves to a lifetime of diarrhea, bloating, constipation, or other uncomfortable symptoms.
The low-FODMAP diet is a revolution. In clinical trials, three-quarters of affected adults who reduced their intake of FODMAPs--a set of difficult-to-digest carbohydrates found in wheat, milk, beans, soy, and certain fruits, vegetables, nuts, and sweeteners--also saw improvement in their IBS symptoms.
The Complete Low-FODMAP Diet is the authoritative guide to this program. It introduces readers to FODMAPs, guides them through an initial elimination phase, and finally helps them reintroduce foods one by one to develop a sustainable, personalized diet. With up-to-date research, varied meal plans, and 80 simple, delectable recipes, The Complete Low-FODMAP Diet will allow IBS patients to enjoy their meals without fear.
