Top Customer Reviews
This book has many benefits:
1. It is precise and clearly written.
2. It is written by someone who is a biologist and has these intolerances
3. It draws on surveys from the food intolerance network (around 800 participants) - with some fascinating information on deviations from traditional lists
4. Provides links back to the food intolerance network site for additional resources (such as food diaries).
What I did not know on commencing this book is:
1. the high incidence of fructose intolerance
2. that lactose intolerance can go hand in hand with fructose malabsorption, and
3. that celiac or gluten intolerance can go hand in hand with lactose intolerance.
and the book makes a fairly compelling case for suspecting these cross-interests when investigating intolerances.
What I appreciated most about this book however was its sheer practical nature. As someone who has got the diagnosis of an intolerance and then tried to muddle through what now this book lays out a very clear pathway. Even the recipes (around 75 pages of them) are extremely practical with a family style of cooking which takes a lot of the anxiety out of eating.
Whilst it is good to see histamine intolerance highlighted in a book on intolerances this book really is for those with either fructose or lactose intolerances. Of note many of the recipes would not be suitable for histamine intolerance and it would have been good to see a few more recipes that were also low histamine in future editions. All in all though I would say that this provides a very clear practical way forward which is by real people for real people.
After a very informative part about histamine Intolerance. Now i can explain what happens in the body after eating different food.
I love the food tables in the book! You can easily check foods according to the degree of tolerance or find them at the end of the book alphabetically sorted. Just great! Now i can see what i can eat or not.
I would reccommend the book to everybody who suffers from histamine intolerance, but also for people suffering from lactose or fructose malaborption. I bet you'll find some useful or even new information in this book.
Some of the recipe are not clear if you can eat them at the really beginning of the elimination diet or not. A weekly menu would have been helpful.
Overall, very instructive and helpful. I highly recommended!
