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.
