Great book for people that suffer with IBS and people who care. It would be a great book for doctors to read. I have suffered with IBS for more than 20 years. I have seen many doctors, taken many tests, tried diferrent medicines, and many different remedies. This by far has helped me the most.

I should have had more of a look at the contents of this book before I bought it. I expected a book full of recipes but instead I got a book about IBS with about 200 very simple recipes. A lot of the recipes are really methods of making things. eg. Lemonade - lemons, water, Just Like Sugar or stevia - stir well. It does give quantities but this is the basic gist of this recipe. Another recipe is for a pot of peppermint teas - peppermint leaves, water and honey. There are Soups, Salads, Breakfast, Mains, Sides, Desserts, Kid favourites and of course Drinks. Each category has around 10 or 11 recipes. I already know how to make many dishes such as herbed scrambled eggs or chicken stock and a lot dont interest me or I could find elsewhere. Because I am following the FODMAP diet for IBS (successfully) a lot of the recipes and ideas about IBS are not suitable as they contain foods I do not eat and ideas that don't work for me. I highly recommend 'IBS Free at Last' by Patsy Catsos. I really want a good book with lots of recipes for the FODMAP diet.

The book is wonderful about telling you how different foods effect your IBS. All the years I've been going to doctors for my IBS none of them have ever explained why certain foods bother my stomach or even suggested changing my diet. I had learned on my own some foods that set off my IBS, with this book I have found more and the reason why. I've learned more about my IBS from this book than from any doctor I've seen. It is a must have in your library and kitchen!

This book was just not good. There is so much conflicting, bad and misleading information here.

This book recommends so many unhealthy foods and even foods which are known to cause a leaky gut issue or prevent you from healing it. This book is not really about healing gut issues, just modifying the symptoms slightly maybe.

This book thinks soy products including soy cheese are wonderful and also recommends rice milk and rice cheese, rice cakes, rice chips, canned soup, baked potato chips, instant oats, puffed cereal products and lots of other heavily processed, unhealthy, low-nutrient foods. Soy milk and cheese are not remotely healthy foods, as books like `The Whole Soy Story' explain. Advising people to cut right back on sugar but then telling them to eat tons of white bread and refined carbs - which the body instantly turns into sugar/glucose - is illogical.

Highly allergenic foods such as soy milk are allowed on the 2 week dairy tolerances test diet, making the test useless and very misleading. Readers are told that if they don't feel better avoiding dairy for two weeks they are safe to drink it again - but they completely ignore the huge possibility that drinking soy milk in this two weeks could easily account for a lack of improvement in many very dairy sensitive people.

A quiche recipe in this book uses egg whites only and also a bought pie crust. How healthy! Any nutrition book which is ignorant enough to tell you to throw out the yolk of an egg - the healthiest part of it and one of the healthiest foods we have albeit one surrounded by propaganda by the cholesterol myth supporters - well, fails as a nutritionist really. It is such ignorant advice. Use whole eggs to make a crustless quiche instead!

Great information all round for IBS sufferers, some great receipes, and overall a great read. You will enjoy reading this if you have just been diagnosed since it gives alot of insight into the different categories of bowel issues, and the whats and whys and how to combat the issue
