    This book provides a different focus on watching what you eat. With stomach discomfort, I've tried diets to limit gluten and have eatten paleo. But this book is different in that it focuses on multiple foods that are often problematic, has you eliminate them from your diet to cleanse by providing you a 28 day supply of recipes, and then you can start reintroducing individual items back into your diet to find out what is making you uncomfortable. Sounds practical to me. Looking forward to figuring this out for myself.

    This diet sounds a little bit like the Atkins diet, except you can eat gluten-free flour products like bread and pasta. It might take a little getting used to, but this diet doesn’t sound like it deprives you – you can still eat lots of normal foods. The recipes are easy to follow and don’t use many obscure ingredients, but I would eat a lot more of everything than they suggest.

    Many people suffer with digestive troubles (IBS) and researchers have discovered the connection between small carbohydrates called FODMAPs (fermentable igosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols) and IBS. These FODMAPs are found in regular foods, such as milk and pears. Even healthy foods can trigger digestive distress in people with sensitive stomachs. The 28-Day diet, with so many tasty dishes reduces or eliminates the discomfort associated with IBS. While all FODMAPs are carbohydrates, not all carbohydrates contain FODMAPs. Fructose and Lactose should be avoided. After about four weeks you can even customize your low-FODMAP diet to meet your own unique needs. It is important to track the foods you eat daily in order to identify what may cause the return of irritable symptoms, such as constipation and bloating. The awesome characteristic of this diet is that foods containing FODMAPs that once caused irritation can be slowly brought back into your diet one at time.

    This cookbook has an extensive selection of healthy options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The 28-day meal plan provides a step-by-step process that makes it easy for people to transition to this diet. There are well-seasoned vegetarian recipes as well as smoothies, like the Banana-Spinach Green Smoothie. There are also creative dishes like Meatloaf “Muffins”and Low-FODMAP Breakfast Sausage. The Garlic Oil sounds like the perfect garnish for salads as well as the Garlic Oil Potato Chips. I love how the book reminds the reader to keep the pantry stocked and be sure to read food labels.

    I found the title very interesting. This book is a wonderful tool for those who suffer with digestive issues. It covers all of the basics in an interesting manner. This tool gives a person the pantry and shopping list that coincides with the weekly meal plan. For me that is a huge part of overcoming a behavioral modification is knowing what to buy exactly and not having to buy unusual items. This book uses basic ingredients that I would normally purchase.

    Looking at the title of this book, I had no idea what FODMAP is. But it was explained quite easily in this book. I like this books solution to IBS by taking out all the normal causes in your diet and slowly reintroducing one type of food back in at a time to find out how your body reacts. The recipes are tasty and simple to make.
