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.Read more ›
Don't be fooled by potions and pills that claim a cure for IBS. Believe me, I've tried them all and "Eating for IBS" is the only cure. Yes, I said cure!!! Not relief but a cure for all who suffer from IBS.
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!
