IBS should not make you skip a beat—get your groove back!
Tired of missing the fun because of your irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)?
Confused about what to eat?
Think you’re the only one who feels miserable while eating healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, beans, and yogurt?
You are not alone. IBS affects up to 15% of teens and adults. If you have IBS, you might be missing more than a good time. Although not a hot topic around the water cooler, IBS is the second leading cause of missed work and school, after the common cold. If you could get your groove back in just a few days by trying a new kind of diet, would you do it?
High-fiber diets for IBS are old school. You deserve to have the latest information on how the foods you eat might be causing your IBS symptoms. It’s time you learned about FODMAPs!
Registered dietitian Patsy Catsos spells out a diet program to help you find your FODMAP food triggers. Thousands of readers of the first edition of IBS—Free at Last! (Pond Cove Press, 2008) were the first to benefit from her program. Now it’s your turn.
What readers are saying about IBS—Free at Last!
“IBS—Free at Last! is a must-read for anyone with IBS who thinks they have tried it all. Many books about IBS claim they are revolutionary; this one truly is life-changing. As a registered dietitian, I have observed first-hand how reducing FODMAPs in the diet can really work to reduce IBS symptoms quickly. My well-worn copy of IBS—Free at Last! is my go-to reference for the FODMAP diet; now Ms. Catsos brings us a second edition that is even better than the original, with expanded menu ideas, travel tips and all new Frequently Asked Questions from her readers. Her practical advice and realistic approach to the FODMAP Elimination Diet is inspiring and empowering; it offers the IBS-sufferer something that is so often elusive—hope!”—Niki Strealy, R.D., L.D., Author of The Diarrhea Dietitian: Expert Advice, Practical Solutions and Strategic Nutrition
“I was just stunned—within two days on your FODMAP Elimination Diet I felt relief. I can’t believe that I’ve been miserable all these years and not one doctor asked me anything about my diet. I had every test in the book and ‘eat more fiber’ drilled into my head. I was trying to be a good patient and it was just making me worse. It’s been two months and I feel like I’ve died and gone to heaven.”—C.F.
“The book is full of great information on a new way to treat IBS through diet. It is easy to read, goes through each step of eliminating, then reintroducing, FODMAP carbohydrates, and explains the science behind it. My IBS symptoms improved dramatically after restricting FODMAPs in my diet…The book really changed my life and health!—CA Dietitian
“Your book, IBS—Free at Last, is a dream come true for my whole family!”—C.D.
