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 am in tears and actually doing the happy dance at the same time as I write this. My IBS was so bad before finding Eating for IBS that I was up all night with cramps and throughout the day. I begged my doctor for some relief because the spasm medication no longer worked. He had no advice but to live with it and take more meds. What? No way! I searched the internet again. Then I found Eating for IBS and ordered it right away hoping it wasn't just another thing that wouldn't work but the price was very easy on my pocketbook and I thought it worth giving a try. The very first day I got relief and by the second day I had no symptoms at all. I can not say enough about this book. Everything I say seems pale to the results it gave me. The diet is so easy and fun to follow and the recipes are delicious! This is a diet? Not for me. For me it is a miracle and I stay free of symptoms and enjoy every bite of delicious food from the recipes that are so full of flavor you actually ENJOY eating instead of dreading it for obvious reasons. I can not thank Heather Van Vorous enough for writing this book, giving us a choice of great recipes and making it available for us. Don't let the oportunity to get well pass you by. There really is a cure
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 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!

For years doctors had been telling me that I had IBS, but that was it.
> I was never given any information on how to handle IBS. I was given
> pills for the pain. But, the pills did not fix the problem. Then I
> was hospitalized a number of times due to excrutiating pain that
> rendered me unable to walk or talk. Again I was told the same thing -
> "take these pills - you have IBS".
>
> The last time I became that ill was in November of 2002. I refused to
> go to the hospital and be put on demerol for days. After I recovered
> I went on line and found your book. I ordered it right away. I felt
> as if you'd been following me around in order to write this book! You
> described my pain and medical experiences perfectly! Since November I
> have not been hospitalized even once and have taken very few Donnatals
> (it use to be a daily thing). I feel like a new woman! I have my
> life back! I am happy. I can eat!!! In fact, now I'd like to lose
> about 10 pounds! I think I've eaten too many graham crackers and
> pretzels! I didn't know I could drink Citrucel daily - I thought it
> was a laxative! I learned so much from your book. My family has even
> gotten use to how I eat now and they have quit proding me to eat the things I know I
> shouldn't eat.
>
> In fact, I feel so good that I sometimes forget what I shouldn't eat.
> A couple of times my husband stopped me from biting into something
> that I shouldn't eat - usually something with nuts!
