Just received the paperback "What To Eat With IBD - A Comprehensive Nutrition and Recipe Guide for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. My husband of 4 years has suffered from ulcerative colitis for almost 10 years now (he is 52). The last flare was worse and we finally clued in! Our lifestyle and diet has to change and I found this book on Amazon.

Wonderful fast shipping, btw -- thanks, Amazon! And many thanks to Tracie for writing this excellent little book. Tracie's honesty and integrity come through well (she was diagnosed with Crohn's disease at 19) and the recipes look delicious....I'm planning to shop this weekend in order to stock our larder/fridge with ingredients to prepare the healthful, tasty meals she has developed in the menu section. This aspect of the book is great for us as we live in the country and cook mostly all our meals.

Tracie says that her dream in writing this book is to inspire others with inflammatory bowel disease to be well. Her hope is to encourage IBD sufferers like herself to face the challenges -- the anxiety, the stress, and the fear of the unknown. Good nutrition is her passion, and learning to eat well can give the control to at least one aspect of this devastating disease -- to re-nourish the body and to allow the intestines to heal. As well, she stresses that we must taken time to care for ourselves not only physically, but emotionally. Nutrition and medication to help heal the body, while hope and faith help to restore the spirit. I hope and pray I can give the support to my husband that he needs to get better now and to stay well forever.

I'm looking forward to helping my husband restore -- and maintain -- his way to better health through this book. I, like Tracie, hope others will come to terms with this horrible disease which is not an easy task. It requires much strength and determination. Thank you, Tracie!! I give this book 5 stars.

I purchased this book a few years ago for my son who was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. He was very sick at that time and finding it difficult to find things to eat that would agree with him. He used this book alot to prepare food for himself. It is easy to read, the recipes use most things you would have in your cupboards. The author is a sufferer of IBD so is writing from her own life experience. I would recommend this book to anyone who suffers with IBD or IBS.

HASH(0x98f389fc) out of 5 stars Book reviewed by a dietitian and mother of a child with Crohn's disease March 8 2007
By B. Chase - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is an invaluable resource to those affected by IBD. The author is a registered dietitian with a Master's degree in nutrition who has had IBD since the age of nineteen. (I also have a Master's degree in nutrition and found all of her nutrition information to be accurate.) The first part of the book contains essential information as to how to achieve a nutritionally adequate diet despite the problems associated with IBD. The reader will learn which foods can cause inflammation and bowel irritation, which foods can nourish and heal the bowel, how to avoid food-borne illness, which nutrient supplements are necessary, and what forms of these recommended supplements are best absorbed.

The second part of the book contains over 50 kitchen-tested nutrient rich recipes that the entire family can enjoy. Recipes for tasty shakes are also included that can be used as meal-replacements when appetite is poor.

As a parent of a child with Crohn's disease, I continually keep abreast of new materials on IBD. Unfortunately, I have found some deleterious dietary misinformation about IBD on the market.

In contrast, I was so impressed with "What to Eat with IBD" that I contacted the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) to tell them how helpful I think this book would be.

HASH(0x9a3cf3e4) out of 5 stars Great recipes!! Feb. 23 2007
By L. Leckie - Published on
Format: Paperback
My husband was just diagnosed with Crohn's. Well, he loves to cook and thought he would have to eat boring food. The recipes in this book ROCK! We are both happy campers. We're both eating healthier and the food is awesome! I recommend this book to anyone and especially those that have special diets. Oh yeah, and there was a lot a good information about IBD in the book. (You can tell which part thrilled me the most!)

HASH(0x9b81d834) out of 5 stars Maybe a bit basic Aug. 22 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
You know, less is sometimes more. What I loved about this book as someone who is Newly Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease is that the author does not put a lot of technical stuff in the book. You don't have to read through pages of research on Crohn's and nutrition. She does say that she does not really explain the symptoms and sign's of Crohn's because, other books do it better.

Instead the book starts with a few pages from the author and why she is a dietitician, then a bit about Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis and IBS. There might be a little about digestion and then she gets into what foods are more healing and hurtful. Her lists might not be exhaustive but, are enough to give you good choices and variety.

Then thing is I don't need to know the how or why...I need to know what I can have for I wished that she addressed things like Juice and if Juicing vegetables is a good way to get in some vitamins and nutrients. But, all in all a very helpful book. The main part of the book is only about 56 pages with IBD friendly recipies at the end. She says much the same things that other books on the subject says, just simpler. It took me about an hour and a half to read all but, the recipies which means I can start using the information that much faster.

HASH(0x9968cdec) out of 5 stars This is the FIRST book you MUST read when first diagnosed with IBD April 17 2012
By Sandra J. Hansen - Published on
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book a few years after I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. (2005) Those first years were of shock and denial. I was hearing so many things from experts that didn't make sense or feel good when I tried to make the changes they suggested. What was soluable fiber and insoluable fiber? Where do I start in taking supplements? one ever mentioned those words. When I finally found the book "what to eat with IBD", food and vitamins made more sense in how they relate to IBD. I finally started to understand what our bodies with IBD need in order to thrive. I have found no other book that explains so matter of factly, and that which gives a wonderful guide of FOODS that HEAL and FOODs that HURT. This really should be given out in G.I's offices for when a patient first learns that they have IBD. It is tremendously supportive. There would be a ton less people crying out saying, "what can I eat!" If you know someone who is recently diagnosed with IBD, buy this book for them to start in the right direction as they start to research and ask questions.

The recipes are fantastic, well balanced, and fit for everyone in the family. I've made almost every recipe and have only disliked one or two. You don't have to slave in the kitchen either! If you have wheat issues or don't believe in eating gluten the book will still be helpful, just substitute gluten free products.

I have to add that I did do the scd diet strictly for almost a year. It felt good because of eliminating the sugars, but nutritionally it's not as sound as Tracie Dalessandro's book.

I've had the opportunity to speak with Tracie on the phone. I am just a stranger to her, one of the millions in this world suffering. However, she took the time to reach out and answer questions that I had, and offer suggestions on how to boost my gut health. She didn't have to do this, but shows just how truely passionate she is in helping others feel good.

I would love, love to see another book by Tracie. A book that gives additional sample menus for the day like in her first. Perhaps a chapter of, "How to work your way out of a flare the best way nutritionally"... would be great for me.

Thank you again Tracie for making my last few years living with U.c. so much easier.

HASH(0x9cdca30c) out of 5 stars Too general and not comprehensive Sept. 23 2008
By catcher - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've had ulcerative colitis for four years, and a few months ago I set my mind to getting myself off the medication while following proper diet. In the process, I purchased each book I found that dealt with IBD or healing through nutrition and gave their arguments a try. I found that there are many good books out there, but this is not one of them. Yes, it is simple and easy to follow, but is also lacking in so many things. First, the foods that the author recommends for healing include soy and wheat, which are problematic for many patients with IBD. Most people would recommend avoiding soy during an inflammation, period. More importantly, the author does not provide a holistic approach to healing the body as she only focuses her attention on diet. Dietary changes are very important, but so are other things that one can do to reduce stress and rest the body. I'd recommend David Klien's Self-healing Colitis and Crohn's, or even Breaking the Vicious Cycle which has it's own cult-like following.
