“IBS has been a daunting problem for patients and their physicians for years. We have seen many drugs and different dietary fads come and go. So, it is wonderful that Sue Shepherd and Peter Gibson have developed this solution for many patients with IBS: a diet based on sound scientific and physiological mechanisms. Combined with good medical care that includes testing for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and fructose and lactose intolerance, the low-FODMAP diet can be individualized, liberalized, and tailored to each patient. This book also provides a great deal of information as to how the diet can be truly indulged in!”
