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
"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.
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.
