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.

              VERY disappointed because this is a USA published bind up of the two other Australian FODMAP books by Shepherd (which I have) and rewritten for the American market (which I am not). However if you are new to the FODMAP diet this is still an economical way of getting the complete information.
