The Low-FODMAP Solution: Put An End to IBS Symptoms and Abdominal Pain by Cinzia Cuneo

Millions of people suffer from IBS — following a low-FODMAP diet is effective for nearly 75 percent of those.

Approximately one in seven people suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The symptoms are difficult to diagnose and treat and until recently, patients had to endure ill health and a poor quality of life with no hope in sight.

We now understand that FODMAPs, which are Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols, are all carbohydrates that are poorly digested in the intestine, which in turn causes the pain and discomfort of IBS. FODMAPs are found in dairy, wheat, beans, pulses, fruit and some vegetables.

Cinzia's objective is to provide you with a tool that will help you attain intestinal wellbeing via a diet that's low in FODMAPs. The first part of her book presents the theory and provides the understanding of why the diet works as well as how you adopt the lifestyle. This includes everything from recommendations for vegetarians to an easy to follow chart which lists all the foods and ingredients that need to be avoided on the diet. She also offers sound advice on reading labels and adapting your favorite recipes.

In the second section of the book, there are 125 recipes and 4 weeks of meal plans that will help you ease into the diet with support and understanding. And the recipes are delicious — just because you're managing IBS doesn't mean you and your family can't eat flavorful and enticing meals.

The 125 recipes are for breakfasts, starters and salads, soups, entrees, sandwiches, sides, snacks and desserts. A typical lunch is Rice and Lentil Salad with Herbs and Tomato, or Pork Fillet and Prosciutto with Spinach, Raisins and Steamed Brown Rice. And dinner is something as easy to prepare as Chicken Fajitas with Tomato and Cucumber Salsa or if you're entertaining, Filet Mignon with a
Creamy Paprika Sauce with Greek-Style Roasted Vegetables.

And simply by buying the book, you receive a reduced-rate subscription to coaching by Registered Dietitians with IBS experience, a Facebook support group and personalized low-FODMAP meal plans and smart grocery lists.

CuteEverything More than 1 year ago
FODMAP restriction has been found to improve symptom control in people with irritable bowel syndrome and other functional gastrointestinal disorders. FODMAPs are specific carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed in the small intestine, which include many kinds of sugars. The term FODMAP stands for “Fermentable, Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides And Polyols.” So, those of us (or who have family members) with digestive problems, it’s hard to know what to eat easily and healthily. The Low-FODMAP Solution offers 130 recipes — delicious and healthy examples of what people with digestive disorders can eat and enjoy every day — and their families, too, since the recipes are great. Many are family favorites in our household now — like the citrus pesto spaghetti or ratatouille with tofu. Really good, and easy to prepare. It’s a friendly and helpful support for any household to not only live with digestive difficulties but to live well with them, regardless.
