Using this book, I was attempting to compile lists of foods that are beneficial and harmful for one suffering with endo; but several foods are mentioned in one section as okay to eat, and in another section as food to avoid. For example, this book repeatedly says to avoid wheat, but then lists bulger and tabbouleh as whole grain alternatives. Rye is also listed as an alternative to wheat, but then it is with wheat in the list of foods to avoid. I can't understand if it is meant to be a gluten-free diet, or just wheat free... it's never stated. Yogurt is another inconsistency. It is detailed in the foods to avoid page, along with dairy, and she even provides a recipe for an alternative nut yogurt, but then says that live yogurt is okay to eat, and is even beneficial. And, as another reviewer noted, the books says to avoid sugars and honey, but that maple syrup and rice syrup are okay... then never explains why they are okay and honey is not (but then 1/2 cup honey is used in the cranberry tea recipe).
I am also disappointed by some incomplete information and advice. On one page it says to "avoid toiletries that contain chemicals that mimic estrogen" but never are these chemicals listed. I think if you already on the endo diet, then there are probably some good recipes, but I wouldn't recommend using this book as a starting point.
I have been on the "endo" diet since April of 2012. It has changed my life. About a month after I started the diet, I did not have to take any pain medication to deal with the pain. After being on this diet for over a year, I am proud to say that I have taken 3 pain pills total in that entire time. Before this diet, I was taking 3 a day on average during the painful times.
It takes a lot of courage and dedication to try something like this and it is not for everyone. This book is a great starting point for anyone not sure of where to start. The diet it very regimented. At this point I can honestly say that I live it about 80% of my food intake but I find it nearly impossible with my lifestyle to do this 100%. It has still made quite the difference. The main things I have given up or cut way back on are gluten, wheat, dairy, and red meat. If this is too much for you at one time just try a few of the main culprits that could have great effect on you...gluten, dairy or red meat. It's worth a shot and in my case being almost 100% pain free was worth it and you are hearing this from a complete carb addict.
Thank you for reading this, it has changed my life. You can also find out more about this diet by searching endodiet on Google. There is a great website you will find that will give you wonderful reviews and other methods to help you deal with endometriosis.
