The low-FODMAP diet is changing lives. If you suffer from the pain and discomfort of a digestive condition such as IBS, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, or nonresponsive celiac disease, it just might change yours. The Complete Low-FODMAP Diet (cowritten by Sue Shepherd) introduced this revolutionary treatment, which is rapidly becoming the first-line recommendation by doctors and dietitians worldwide. FODMAP is an acronym that stands for a group of difficult-to-digest carbohydrates found in foods such as wheat, milk, beans, soy, and some fruits, vegetables, nuts, and sweeteners. More than three quarters of adults with IBS who reduce their intake of these foods gain relief. Now, this follow-up cookbook brings you 150 simple, delicious, and brand-new recipes that are full of flavor but low in FODMAPs. The mix includes: breakfasts to start the day off right (Blueberry Pancakes; Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins) starters and sides for every occasion (Spring Rolls; Chicken, Bacon, and Pesto Mini Pizzas; Stuffed Roasted Bell Peppers) soups and salads full of flavor (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Salad; Creamy Seafood Soup) entrées that make you feel good (Chicken and Vegetable Curry; Speedy Spaghetti Bolognese; Beef Satay Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce) desserts that satisfy (Flourless Chocolate Cake; Almond Cookies; Baked Blueberry Cheesecakes). The low-FODMAP diet puts an end to suffering in silence, fearing the possible consequences of every meal, or confining yourself to a handful of bland, “safe” foods. The only thing missing from this comprehensive collection is the FODMAPs—and you’d never know it!

This book demystifies the low-FODMAP diet and provides 125 tasty and delicious recipes for a happy gut. Written by a specialist gut dietitian, The Low-FODMAP Recipe Book can help you to take control of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), functional bowel disorder and digestive distress. Dietary management is key to managing IBS and other gut disorders. The most successful diet for bringing relief for symptoms such as bloating, abdominal distension, excessive wind, diarrhoea and other digestive issues is the low-FODMAP diet, which has been medically proven in rigorous clinical trials to improve symptoms in up to 75 per cent of people with IBS. Because of the diet's success it is quickly becoming an essential treatment for people with a sensitive gut and can help in the management of a wide range of stomach troubles and gastrointestinal discomfort. The low-FODMAP diet will help you to identify food intolerances, including intolerance of lactose and fructose, and may also be used to help those who are suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Coeliac Disease and functional symptoms following gastrointestinal surgery. An expert in the low-FODMAP diet and gut disorders, author Lucy Whigham will help you to understand more about the way your gut functions and what is contributing to your symptoms. This book is an easy guide to why and how the low-FODMAP diet can help, and includes tables of what foods need to be avoided for the elimination phase and beyond. FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Di-saccharides, Mono-saccharides and Polyols) are naturally occurring sugars that are found in a wide range of everyday foods. They are not fully broken down during digestion and therefore cannot be completely absorbed by the body. Instead they travel through the gut where they are fermented by the bacteria that live in our gastrointestinal tract. In susceptible people (those with a sensitive gut) this fermentation can lead to excessive wind, bloating, pain, cramping and stomach gurglings. FODMAPs also draw water into the gut, which can lead to diarrhoea and frequent bowel motions. Cutting out foods that are high in these fermentable carbohydrates and following a low-FODMAP diet can help you to regain control over your digestive symptoms and thereby improve your quality of life. Once your symptoms are under control you can start to re-introduce FODMAPs to help you identify your individual intolerances and threshold levels. In this way you are empowered with the knowledge of exactly which foods cause you problems, putting you in the driving seat and letting you control your symptoms rather than have them control you.
