In these days of low-carb mania, it's a real mind-bender to consider that red meat, butter, whole eggs, raw veggies and whole wheat bread might be bad for you -- and that white rice, white bread, and white pasta might actually be good. But for IBS sufferers (at least those like me, with diarrhea-predominant symptoms and lots of gas/bloating) this can indeed be the case. Following Heather's basic strategies has provided wonderful relief in a matter of days -- after months of invasive tests, ineffective medications, and futile advice from docs. Her explanation of the differing effects of soluble and insoluble fiber on IBS sufferers is the key to this diet, and many will find that they can add back "forbidden" foods to some degree after getting their gut stabilized. Who would have thought that eating things in a specific order (like eating the starch before the salad!) could actually have an effect on gut spasms? But for me, that's exactly the case.
The author's sage advice about various fiber supplements and their individual characteristics would be worth the purchase price. (Reviewers who complained that her diet doesn't work for IBS with constipation must not be following her advice about incorporating fiber supplements; I don't see how they could possibly remain blocked up under the regime she outlines.) On top of that, the recipes are great. I love food and cooking and had despaired of ever having fun in the kitchen again -- always worried that what I was putting in my mouth was going to cause great suffering an hour or two later. Playing around with Heather's recipes has brought back the old thrill, and it's stuff the whole family can eat without suspecting it's some kind of special diet.

I purchased this book because I have recently been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, an Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD) and this book claims to be good for IBD as well as IBS sufferers. I found originally found out about this book from this website [...]
This book is full of gourmet-style recipes. The recipes call for ingredients that are no longer exotic, since they can be found in larger grocery stores (even in places like Alaska), but are still fairly expensive.
Also, while this book claims to cater to IBD as well as IBS sufferers, don't be fooled. The recipes in this book contain far too much fat, spices and insoluable fiber to be appropriate for IBD sufferers.
Still, these recipes are lower in fat compared to traditional recipes. While many are gourmet-style recipes that look like they will take every bowl and pot in your kitchen to create, they do look tasty. So, if you have IBS, and are looking for variety without aggravating your condition... and you really like your kitchen, I have no reservations recommending this book.
But, if you have IBD, be cautious about this book. You will most likely find that there are unacceptable ingredients and preparation methods in the recipes, unless you have a very mild form of the disease or are in remission.

I have been suffering from IBS my entire teen and adult life, and this book has given me hope that I may at some point be able to eat, travel, and live my life without wondering whether I will suddenly have an attack. I have been following the diet recommendations for almost 4 months now and I am about 80-90% stable - which for me is a dramatic improvement. The trick with this book is that it doesn't just simply tell what you can and can't eat - it tells you HOW to eat in order to minimize irritation in the GI tract.

I know many people say they found relief within days, but it doesn't work that quickly for everyone. Do not be discouraged if it takes a few weeks, or even months, to get better. The effort will be WELL worth it.

I haven't even scratched the surface with all the wonderful recipes in this book, but the ones I've tried have been fantastic. The Chocolate Applesauce Cake alone was well worth buying the book for!

Thanks to "Eating For IBS", I am once again a normal person. As soon as I began using her eating strategy, a miracle transpired - my IBS symptoms disappeared entirely! Now her easy orange miso avocado & cucumber salad has become a favorite along with her cinnamon zucchini bread and many other tasty dishes. Her international "ethnic" cuisine assures great variety and zest. Heather's book is intelligently written in easy to understand language and very informative. She has created a simple yet comprehensive guide on how to eat absolutely delicious meals that actually stabilized my colon immediately. Her strategy of substituting safe foods for "trigger" foods makes sense and really works. I finally understand how my vegetarian diet of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole wheat were causing attacks. I was also consuming more than two entire packages of FiProFlax fiber a week (...) to control my IBS without much success because it is insoluble fiber! Doctors never told me that there were two kinds of fiber and that I needed to eat the soluble kind. But because Heather makes this very clear distinction, I have my life back. I highly recommend her book!
