“Written in layman’s language, Eating for Autism will help you determine whether there’s a dietary connection to your child’s behaviors, and, if so, how to proceed.”

“A nice addition to a practitioner’s bookshelf.”

Very helpful book!

Start with the food that looks like what they would even allow to come near their mouth, basically.

I love how the author clearly explains all vitamins, minerals, diets, and multivitamins.

Before striking out on my own in this review, I'd like to correct the misconception by D. Prince that there was "...NOTHING about problems with protein intolerance" in this book. First of all, gluten IS (or rather ARE) proteins... two of them, in fact; glutenin and gliadin. Both of these special proteins make up what we call "gluten."

The elasticity we see in bread dough is due to these proteins. There are two amino acid sequences in glutenin; HMW (high molecular weight) 10 and HMW 12. Their differences are in their repeating arrays of hexamer and nonamer amino acids. Their structure is responsible in large part for the increase in elasticity when the dough is kneaded.

While the author of EATING FOR AUTISM may not have gone into great detail about this process, I think one gets a clue about the book by its title, EATING for Autism. The book is about EATING, and it's written for the layman, not the scientist, albeit some people with these diseases and/or with gluten intolerance and other food intolerances and allergies have become experts in the field.

As far as the comment on speculation, "...a lot of un-referanced and speculation babble about autism," I think even scientists and medical experts have not nailed everything down about autism yet. There is a lot of speculation in this field for that very reason. Someone with protein intolerance or other food intolerances or allergies must rely on "speculation" coupled with their own experiences until such a time in the future when all can be known about this subject.

Having read the book, I must agree that it suffers a bit from the lack of detail about protein intolerances and food allergies. However, having tried many of the recipes myself, I must also agree with D. Prince that the recipes are excellent...

My review is partly in response to another's eval that states that this author purports foods that are not nutritious and that the author must not have reviewed the literature etc.
I believe this book makes a great approach at addressing the nutrition issues most often found in those with Autism, ADHD, Asperger.
As a practitioner, eating issues are prevalent. This author cannot suggest salads,a litany of fruits, legumes if the child won't even go near those food types! Most often the parents states that this is the case. The parent comes in desperate because they have spent weeks, months preparing broccoli 10 different ways, or have pureed every legume in the book to try to get their child to eat healthy, and nothing works, because they have not started with the steps she outlines. The vegetables, fruits, legumes are the ideal end in mind. But it is reasonable to start at a place where the child is at and make changes towards the goal. Hence, the "recipes" for alternative chick nuggets, jello, etc. Start with the food that looks like what they would even allow to come near their mouth, basically. The resources provided in the back, the support literature is very appropriate. Getting a child to follow all of these steps and take every vit and min desired on a daily consistent basis, is NOT easy and can be difficult. It is not unacceptable to say so. Any child that can do this on a daily basis, therefore would not appear to have an eating problem! Simultaneously, the title does not say nutrition encyclopedia. Instead the author gives resources for one to look up the nutritional content of food and if I know a dietitian when I see one, likely would give you nutrition and food group intake and analysis/suggestions for free if you asked. Excellent, helpful, recommend it!

Before this book, I felt like I was finding my way in the dark through the nutitional maze. I found this book very helpful by giving me specific steps to follow. I liked having the correct dosage for supplements. As a parent of a child with Down syndrome and Autism, it was important to me to first have good health and then second to know when to seek help from a professional on the more specific interventions.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have three kids and one (7 yrs old) with a metabolic disorder who is currently in the GFCF diet. I purchased this book because it included recipes for my child. Since I was experiencing the same side effects of the disorder (bad temper, angry, no tolerance etc) with my first boy (9 yrs), I decided to test him and the results came positive for the same disorder. I agree with the author of the book that many of our kids are not getting the essential nutrients and minerals they need for proper nutrition. My second child was diagnosed by one psychologist and one psychiatrist with ADHD and they were ready to medicate him but I decided to explore other options like providing him with proper nutrition and going to the geneticist. I can say that after two years in the proper diet my son is a 4.0 student doing great and with no medications at all. He was just missing the right amount of nutrients required for proper functioning. It is just plain and simple we are not eating right. We need to be very careful of what we feed our children because sometimes their behavior might be due to just an allergy or bad nutrition. This book was really an eye opening for me and believe me, I already recommend it to all of my girlfriends with children.
