You won't regret this

I was diagnosed with IBS nine years ago, and have had problems off and on since then. Sometimes modifying my diet would help, other times I was on medications, sometimes both. But the symptoms always came back, and I'd have to change up whatever I was doing and figure it out all over again. And again, and again.

After only one week on this diet (one week!), I feel like a new person. No symptoms, I can eat all I want (which was impossible before, as sometimes I'd feel sick after just a few bites), and the food is great. I love to cook, and this is the diet for me, although if you dislike cooking or eat out a lot, I understand it would seem much more difficult at first. But still not impossible.

For me, the hardest thing was giving up chocolate, but I haven't cheated once and I won't go back now. I feel too darn good! I'm having normal bowel function, which I had given up on years ago. I'm not on any medication, I have energy (which I'd also given up on), and my body just feels good. The last stubborn bit of baby weight I'd been carrying from my almost three-year-old has just fallen off.

Honestly, it sounds crazy - giving up all grains and refined sugar. But once I read the book and tried it myself, I can't understand why everyone wouldn't eat this way. This is how our bodies were designed. And I'm not going back.

For those of us who are relieved to have access to information which empowers us to take care of ourselves, this book is a godsend. With it I have been able to completely regain my health without the use of medications. It is a tragedy that this information is not available to everyone with digestive disorders, so that we all can make informed personal choices about how we wish to approach our treatment. People with the determination to regain their health will almost certainly benefit from learning about this diet.
