Best Fodmap Book

Recommended Posts

I wanted to look into the FODMAP for me and my kids, and I was wondering what the best book for the how's and why's of this diet is.  Any advice would be welcome. :)

Hi Nicole...someone recommended the book by Sue Shepard to me. I had it on hold at the library, but by the time I got it the holidays were upon us and I didn't end up doing anything with it. It looked good if that helps. Lol! I have a hard time mentally thinking about giving up any more food right now.

I have the book by Sue Shepard, it's pretty clear and informational. I also have a hard time mentally giving up any more food. I did make some changes, but for the most part I am so restricted to begin with I didn't jump into it fully. 

 

I am having surgery in a few weeks for a broken toe, and the surgeon recommended it for other issues we discussed, like arthritis changes in my bones he saw. he is sending me to a rheumatologist to check into this, and I meet with him on Friday. if this doc recommends it I will probably make more changes. 

 

always something! 


gluten free since 11/12  

dairy and soy free since 1/13

chocolate free since 6/14

 

I miss my chocolate!!!   but I'm not sick anymore, and that's what really matters  :)

LOL It helps.  ;)  I actually have a hold on that one at the library. I should have it by February.

Good luck with the rheumy!  I hope you find answers, but then again I hope you don't.  ;)  I know when I saw the rheumy I actually broke into tears of frustration when she said my arthritis must be celiac disease related.  I was relieved but ridiculously disappointed that there was nothing I could do but give it more time.  LOL  :rolleyes:   That rheumy did not recommend anything about dietary changes to me at all.  Actually, she did nothing for me but I wasn't in a flare up at the time of my appointment so I'm mot sure what she believed either.

 

Good luck!  Let us know how it goes.

Here is a link to the one my g.i. gave me.

 

http://www.amazon.com/The-Complete-Low-FODMAP-Diet-Revolutionary/dp/1615190805

 

It's really not a hard diet to follow.  I did it for about six months.  I did get a little tired of eating the same vegetables, but just in time the dietician told me to add in summer squash and zucchini.  It's very similar to the SCD diet, but I found it to be not as restricting and easier to follow.  You'll find good recipes on Kate Scarlotta's blog, also.

Together with Celiac I also have IBD and although I am now officially in remission since i have been gluten free GI recommended I go on FODMP diet in order to deal with some other intolerances and problems I also have - this book was recommended to me: IBS free at last! By Patsy Catsos is a good guide to the FODMP elimination diet - it looks like it is devoted to IBS but also deals with celiac and IBD and I have found it extremely informative. Hope this helps!!
