This is a good collection of healthy recipes for those on special endometriosis diet. I especially liked sweet receipes that do not require plain white flour.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice jumping stone Feb. 25 2009
By MooChelle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are several recipes in this book, all of them sound delicious (mostly)...However the majority of them do not include ingredients readily available, or available in the states for that matter. It is however a good starting point for anyone that is just starting out on the Endo Diet. I suggest you do some looking at recipes and places on the internet before sinking the money into the book. Especially if you are like me and you think you are buying a recipe book to have on hand at all times...

5.0 out of 5 stars Saved me From Pain July 30 2008
By Maggie May - Published on Amazon.com
I am a stage 1V Endo patient, and wanted to stop by here to simply say that I bought this book a few years ago and it changed my life. I started to implement the dietary changes and the major ones that changed my life were eliminating wheat and lessening sugar. I went from chronic, horrible fatigue and pain to manageable. It wasn't easy, it took me two years to get a grip on my food addictions and I used Chronium supplement to great effect for controlling cravings. I recommend this book to every woman I meet who has Endo and actually I am mentioning it in an article I just wrote which I hope will be published soon.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many inconsistencies Aug. 8 2009
By PhotoGirl - Published on Amazon.com
I respect the author's work in providing a resource for those of us suffering from endometriosis and wishing to control it with diet, but this book is too full of frustrating inconsistencies for me to recommend it as a source.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious Recipes May 31 2011
By Kimi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has excellent recipes for those seeking to improve the negative symptoms associated with endometriosis. I've had severe cramping for 1-3 weeks out a month. In desperation, I was searching for something I could do for relieving the pain. I've been on this diet using the recipes for the past 2 weeks. I have already experienced a better monthly cycle with cramping for 3-4 days instead of weeks. The cramping has been very manageable. The information on the estrogens and how the body reacts to different foods in my diet was so valuable. I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty the recipes are. I'm hopeful that as I continue the dietary guideline she recommends the months ahead will only get better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Excited about my purchase Aug. 29 2008
By A. Berry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just received my book today, and got a chance to look through it and I am very excited to try it out. This author obviously worked very hard to do her research and worked hard to help the rest of us out when it comes to understanding the good and bad foods. Her explanations are clear, her recipes look delicious. I will be starting this ASAP.
