The IBS Elimination Diet and Cookbook
I was really looking forward to reading this book when I ordered it from Blogging For Books (for FREE, for my honest review). It's actually a revised and expanded edition of the earlier book, "IBS-Free At Last" (also by Patsy Catsos). I really enjoyed that it is a comprehensive book on IBS. It tells the different types (with different symptoms), the scientific causes, and why avoiding FODMAPS can help your IBS. It has a great list of foods to avoid, recipes and sample meal plans both for the elimination phase and beyond. If you are an IBS sufferer this is the book for you! The only downside I found was that as a vegetarian who avoid dairy, I wouldn't be able to eat any of the recipes in the book which was a bummer. Otherwise it's a great book for learning more about IBS.
