I've had a digestive disease for the last 23 years. I've struggled with diet-related issues because of that more or less dramatically for that whole time. _Gutbliss_ is the first book I've ever read that is making a difference in that cause.

Using a conversational style, Dr. Chutkan explains the likely causes behind every common - and not a few uncommon - issues with the GI tract in a way accessible to someone like me without a medical degree. In every chapter, there's a story of someone she's treated successfully. She provides solutions that are reasonable and actionable.

I'm cautiously satisfied with my results of following her suggestions after only 8 days. That's pretty amazing considering I'm combating 23 years of disease.

I'm recommending this to every female friend I know who is interested in this subject and will continue to do so. I'll have a hard time sharing this book when I'm done!

As a Family Medicine physician and public health professional, I was intrigued by this book. I read an interview with the author and the premise seemed interesting. I wanted to check it out not only for potential information for my patients, but also for myself, since I have had various digestive issues over the years.

First, the good: the book, while very basic info for me, will probably be a good resource for the average layperson. I like how she describes the function and importance of the GI tract, and the matter-of-fact way she talks about the health issues associated with the gut. I think it is a good resource for the average person. While her "program" is basically a brief food-avoidance regimen, I think probably some people who haven't read about such regimens before will get some interesting new information. For my part, I already avoid the majority of the items she mentions (alcohol, caffeine, soy, processed food, sugar, etc) but the book did inspire me to increase my veggie intake and perhaps try a trial of no dairy for a couple of weeks.

Now, the bad: The chapter on hormones is very minimal and is so inaccurate and full of holes that I am amazed it was written by a medical professional. Here are some quotes:
"Birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy are also forms of xenoestrogens and a major cause of bloating." This is a gross oversimplification; there are tens of different formulations of oral contraceptives (OCPs) and how each woman responds to them is extremely individual. If your OCP is causing so much bloating that you are uncomfortable and noticing it, for heaven's sake talk to your OB/Gyn or other health professional to change it!

First saw this book and its author featured on Dr. Oz. I don't typically buy things because they are recommended on a television show but what she spoke about made sense. There is a ton of great information in this book from a doctor that takes into account the whole person; a common sense meets science approach. The book is divided into three parts; Digestion 101, What's Gone Wrong In Your Gut? and On The Path To Gutbliss. She includes a list of foods to avoid (SAD GAS) Soy, Artificial Sweeteners, Dairy, Gluten, Alcohol and Sugar, foods to limit, and foods to include. A worthwhile investment.

I read a nutrition book every 1-2 weeks. Although I always get something out of them, Gutbliss has so much great info, that it is one of only a few that will have a place on my permanent shelf.

Dr. Chutkan, while having an impressive resume in traditional medicine, seems to recognize its weaknesses and deficits--mainly the tendency to treat symptoms rather than causes. She makes an overwhelmingly convincing argument for the GI system's health (or lack of it) being the basis for our overall physical (and sometimes emotional) health. She thoroughly, and humorously at times, discusses just about every symptom or question you might have concerning some "delicate" issues. Chutkan offers simple, non-pharmaceutical solutions to most of them. But in responsible fashion, she doesn't hesitate to recommend traditional/pharmaceutical/surgical solutions when necessary. In short, she represents the best of what a doctor should be, believing in the body being enabled to heal itself through natural processes, and relying on modern medicine as a last resort instead of the first assault.

Gutless discusses just about any digestive subject you can imagine (and many you may never have heard of), from IBS to gas. The information and citations regarding the gallbladder gave me the information I needed to convince my doctor to work with me to avoid surgery for gallstones. Using what I've learned from Chutkan, I'm taking control and helping my body heal the cause of my gallstones rather than simply yanking out a crucial part of my digestive system. So, in a very real sense, this book may have saved me thousands!

Be advised, the 10 day plan is a tiny part of the book. Yes, it's easy to follow, and it's all there, but it is not the most important aspect of the book.
