    The Low-FODMAP 6-Week Plan and Cookbook by Suzanne Perazzini A Step-by-Step Program of Recipes, Meal Plans, and Strategies for Managing IBS and Banishing Digestive Discomfort The book is set up in two parts. PART 1: FODMAPS and the Low-FODMAP Diet Chapter 1: Understanding IBS Chapter 2: The Low-FODMAP Diet Chapter 3: Plan to Succeed PART 2 : The Low-FODMAP Diet Program WEEK ONE The introduction and elimination phase Setting the Foundation for Success WEEK TWO Relief : Becoming Symptom Free WEEK THREE St The Low-FODMAP 6-Week Plan and Cookbook by Suzanne Perazzini A Step-by-Step Program of Recipes, Meal Plans, and Strategies for Managing IBS and Banishing Digestive Discomfort The book is set up in two parts. PART 1: FODMAPS and the Low-FODMAP Diet Chapter 1: Understanding IBS Chapter 2: The Low-FODMAP Diet Chapter 3: Plan to Succeed PART 2 : The Low-FODMAP Diet Program WEEK ONE The introduction and elimination phase Setting the Foundation for Success WEEK TWO Relief : Becoming Symptom Free WEEK THREE Stay the course - getting ready for testing WEEK FOUR The reintroduction phase – incorporating Foods Back Into Your Diet WEEK FIVE Persevere - assessing your trigger foods WEEK SIX Expansion - Creating your own Low-FODMAP diet profile There is quite a bit of information about IBS, its history, why it occurs, foods that are better and worse, specifications on which foods to eat/avoid and in what quantities, meal plans for each section with recipes and case studies shared. There is a recipe for pizza that the dough uses tapioca flour. A how to test for tolerance of foods section is included. Seasoning ideas, are included along with basics and more exotic recipes. How to travel and go out and deal with situations is mentioned. Desserts and baked goods recipes as well as sides and mains are included. There are exercises for each week of the program along with what to include in your diary. The index is well done and helpful. It has information that should be helpful to someone with IBS and a specific plan to deal with it that seems to make sense. It talks about alcohol and how much and caffeinated beverages, soda and other topics that would be of interest. The photos are pretty. I have to say that the reason this book appealed to me to read for review is that a relative of mine was recently diagnosed with IBS and I was curious. I have heard her talking about meals that were basics in her repertoire that included many ingredients she has had to give up, find substitutes for or deal without. She has also found that her gastro-intestinal system is much happier as a result of the changes in her diet. I believe this book would be helpful to someone recently diagnosed with IBS and thus recommend it for that reason. Thank you to NetGalley and Fair Winds Press for the copy of this cookbook to review – This is my honest opinion. 5 Stars

    I have suffered from IBS symptoms for 30+ years, but it was only recently that my condition was correctly diagnosed and that was by going on a low FODMAP diet. The FODMAP elimination diet is extremely difficult and daunting to stick to, particularly if like me, you like to go out to eat a lot. However, for success, you have to stick to this diet 100% for the 6 week duration. Ideally, you should also get the support of a Dietician.

This book offers a good insight into IBS with lots of information about what FODMAPs are, but in an easy to understand format. The recipes are mainly original and workable. It is extremely difficult to be a vegetarian or vegan whilst following this diet, due to the high levels of FODMAPs in the staples for these diets and so unfortunately, in line with similar books, the recipes featured are largely aimed towards meat and dairy eaters. Overall, a great book though. Many thanks to Netgalley for a copy of this ARC for which I have given my voluntary and unbiased review.

    The Low-FODMAP 6-Week Plan and Cookbook is as it says in the title, a six week plan and cookbook for those who suffer from IBS. Part one of the book begins with an introduction to IBS and explains the foods and life situations that may trigger IBS symptoms. It provides a number of ideas on how to deal with an IBS episode and provides information on other health problems that accompanies IBS, such as depression and diverticulosis. The next two chapters in part one go into detail of what the FODMAP The Low-FODMAP 6-Week Plan and Cookbook is as it says in the title, a six week plan and cookbook for those who suffer from IBS. Part one of the book begins with an introduction to IBS and explains the foods and life situations that may trigger IBS symptoms. It provides a number of ideas on how to deal with an IBS episode and provides information on other health problems that accompanies IBS, such as depression and diverticulosis. The next two chapters in part one go into detail of what the FODMAP acronym stands for, which foods contain them and a plan for success. It provides a short history on the Low-FODMAP and then gives the two main structures of the diet - elimination and reintroduction.  The plan gives details of how often your meals should be spaced out, along with a general overview of certain foods, how to read labels as some processed foods contain trigger ingredients and strategies for sticking to the diet. Part two contains six weeks of meal plans and recipes, with weeks 1-3  being introduction to the diet and elimination of certain trigger foods. Each week provides recipes of breakfasts, snacks, sweet treats and dinners, which can be moved from week to week for variety. Week 4 then begins the introduction of certain foods in small doses to see what effects it has, and again provides a meal plan.  Weeks 5 and 6 carry the diet on with more meal plans and recipes. At the end of each chapter is a lifestyle exercise and case study from people who have followed the diet. The recipes look varied and interesting and have full instructions, some photography for recipes and give both imperial and metric measurements. Recipes are generally for four people, so I was surprised to see that the case study for families was included near the end of the book. I received this book from netgalley in return for a honest review.

    I was given an ARC of this book through NetGalley and the publishers for an honest review. I was so grateful to receive a copy of this amazing guide and Cookbook. I was an IBS sufferer long before it was used as an excuse for many people to make up a specific diet to help give some comfort and relief to all those who have been diagnosed with this horrible monster. The many pieces of sage and welcome advise along with easy and nitrious recipes and a 6 week plan was miracle.

    I have not been diagnosed with IBS but I do have a sensitive stomach and diverticulitis. Whenever I eat bread or a high proportion of red meat, or if I drink milk or wine, I suffer with pain and bloating within a few hours. Since I had been thinking about trying a Low FODMAP diet to see if it makes a difference, I think this book is just what I need to guide me through the diet.

    For those suffering from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), this will be a perfect book to step you through an easy 6-week plan to clear IBS. After week 3 you should see a difference. The Low-FODMAP Diet with recipes and a list of trigger foods are something I didn’t know as well as so much other information in this book. Highly recommend this book for anyone with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

I really like how the author included recipes and food plans as well as substitutions for specific foods. As a nutrition coach, I am always learning about food and its effects on the human body. No two humans are the same which can make nutrition challenging. This book is a great addition to my nutrition education arsenal.

I was under no obligation to review this book and my opinion is freely given. The Low-FODMAP 6-Week Plan and Cookbook is a guideline for individuals with IBS to follow for a more successful and healthy lifestyle. As each person who is living with IBS has different individual needs and triggers, this book is meant as a general road map to help alleviate symptoms. Personally, I could not see the point to using specialized and expensive flours such as quinoa or rice, when plain white flour will not trigger symptoms. As a person who also suffers from lactose intolerance, I was happy that some of the recipes included lactose free ingredients. As many of the recipes included trigger foods for me, I would not be able to use most of them without adaptations. I do like how the author lays out a step by step plan, but I wish that she had included a traditional type chart with the breakdown of both good and possible trigger foods. Her list at the back of the cookbook is hard to follow and readers would be better served with a different method of delivery of the information. The inclusion of case studies at the end of each section did nothing to enhance the book, although some readers may find a connection with some of the individual stories. There is some good advice, but I really did not learn anything more from The Low-FODMAP 6-Week Plan and Cookbook than I already knew. Readers who are at the beginning of their journey back to a healthy gut will benefit more from this cookbook than those who are already knowledgeable about the low-FODMAP lifestyle.

    For anyone who has ever had any IBS, Fructose or problems with digestion due to food intolerances, this is the book for you. This book explains everything you would want or need to know, along with recipes, the reintroduction phase of incorporating foods, case studies and so much more. It is a 6-week plan and cookbook and gets into the nitty gritty of how to handle many problems, even the embarrassing ones.

It is a 6-week plan and cookbook and gets into the nitty gritty of how to handle many problems, even the embarrassing ones. For someone who is diagnosed with food intolerances, just the word "Intolerance" can put you into a real spin, what to eat, how to approach restaurants and find something you can eat without having to run to the toilet because there is an ingredient in it that sets you off, how to gain the confidence to actually approach wait staff and explain what you can't have etc. This is a must read book and I couldn't recommend it more highly, it is a step by step program of recipes and meal plans with all the extras included. Thanks to Netgalley and Quarto Publishing Group - Fair Winds Press for the opportunity to read and review, definitely a must have book for IBS sufferers. It is written by Suzanne Perazzini who is a nutritional therapist specializing in irritable bowel syndrome and the low Fodmap diet (certified by the Monash University on the low Fodmap diet), qualified teacher, award-winning author and fulltime low Fodmap diet coach, so you can be rest assured you have a book here written by a very qualified person, a book that I will certainly be referring to well into my future.

    I am sorry to say that I cannot recommend this book for reasons relayed to the publisher. Specifically, at 14% in the Kindle edition, Ms. Perazzini makes the broad statement that "People eating a low FODMAP diet do not have a problem with gluten," the protein responsible for celiac disease, an autoimmune disease, and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. FODMAPs are fermentable carbohydrates, but gluten can be found in a number of items such as soy sauce (which is actually fermented wheat, rather than f I am sorry to say that I cannot recommend this book for reasons relayed to the publisher. Specifically, at 14% in the Kindle edition, Ms. Perazzini makes the broad statement that "People eating a low FODMAP diet do not have a problem with gluten," the protein responsible for celiac disease, an autoimmune disease, and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. FODMAPs are fermentable carbohydrates, but gluten can be found in a number of items such as soy sauce (which is actually fermented wheat, rather than fermented soy) and Ms. Perrazzini does employ soy sauce in some of her recipes without specifying gluten-free soy sauce (tamari), which is fermented soy. (It's important to note that some forms of soy are problematic on the FODMAP diet, as well.) Ms. Perazzini, who trained in the FODMAP diet at Monash University, is not a registered dietician/nutritionist in New Zealand. (nutritionsociety.ac.nz) as of this writing. This book should be approached with caution by anyone who is looking for a dietary fix, without the benefit of a thorough gastrointestinal medical workup. Several other books on the market are savvy enough to cover themselves by firmly stating this to the reader. Usually they are written by registered dieticians.

    I've been having a lot of gastro- problems lately so I was happy to get the chance to review this book. The changes were a little daunting at first (no garlic! no onions! rice flours! etc.) but I'm happy to see so many delicious recipes included in addition to her wisdom about managing stress, the expectations of others around you, and more. Going to try the Almond & Rosemary Chicken with Sweet Potato Mash and Spinach tonight! I've been having a lot of gastro- problems lately so I was happy to get the chance to review this book.

    The explanations are very brief and not terribly helpful, and the weekly meal plans are very complex. The author actually stops at one point and tells people to buy a booklet from the university where she works in order to successfully follow the diet she’s promoting in this book. What?
