4.0 out of 5 stars Good Guide to Eating with a Bad Gut 10 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this book, Dr. Scala, a leading nutiritionist, provides diet and nutrition information so that people with IBD can help themselves find relief and achieve better health. The author has designed a drug free food and lifestyle program which includes: developing a personal testing program to identify foods that aggravate, cause or relieve flare-ups; "safe foods" and tips on reading labels; total fitness and stress reduction techniques; food allergies (including lactose, alcohol, and sugar intolerance); IBD and children; and recommended vitamin supplements. Recommended for folks who need clear instructions to develop their own dietary program. A useful book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful, but somewhat jumpy 14 Jan 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was very helpful in helping me deal with the diet necessary for Ulcerative Colitis. I found it to be very informative and was glad that it had an aspect that dealt with supplements of vitamins and minerals -ie. how much, how we should obtain them in the best possible way, and why we need more when taking certain prescriptions, something that is not usually mentioned by the MD. His recommendations and calculation of food amts (grams and calories) was also very helpful in learning exactly how much we should be taking in with this disease process. His practical and lighthearted way of verbalizing the diet dilema continued to push me to read more. I found his pattern of writing easy to follow with the exception that he continued to say-"I'll talk about that later in the book." I also found it very interesting when he talked about the link between Ulcerative Colitis and other inflammatory disease processes (ie asthma, arthritis, etc). I highly recommend this book for both IBD suffers and gastroenterologists. All of his suggestions are very helpful, and they give new hope that there are more choices of foods out there for IBD suffers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning: This Book Is Over-Hyped 29 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is commonly recommended by the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, but I didn't think it was very good. The observations were haphazard, and some sounded like the author was making them up as he went along. He has a kind of puppy-ish enthusiasm, but he goes off half-cocked a lot. It's also full of repetition. There are much better books out there, both on nutrition and on these illnesses.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fluff and filler 15 Jun 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The modest amount of solid, useful information contained in this book can be gleaned almost entirely from the well written reviews on this site. The actual book itself is full of fluff--mostly about such poorly defined concepts as "stress" and "supernutrition" and "excercise, the best medicine." I disliked the poor organization, the repetition, the overall childishness of the writing (it reminded me of a Richard Simmons infomercial). The author did interview (by mail) people with IBD, but the sampling was small and the conclusions he draws from these comments are dubious (I've never had problems with chocolate, and I've never had a flare-up set off by stress either. Sometimes flare-ups have their own mysterious logic) . The book, published almost 10 years ago, is also badly out of date as to medication (it doesn't even mention mesalamine, now the front-line treatment for these diseases).

By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
For sufferers of Crohn's Disease, Ileitis, Ulcerative Colitis, and other
Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. Dr. Scala, has designed a drug-free food and lifestyle program
that offers relief from the pain and embarrassment of these intestinal diseases. It includes:
developing a personal testing program to identify foods that aggravate, cause, or relieve
flare-ups; "safe foods" and tips on reading labels; total fitness and stress reduction techniques;
food sensitivities, alergies, lactose, alcohol, and sugar intolerance; Inflammatory Bowel Disease
and children; and, dietary and vitamin supplements and their recommended dosages. This book
is as much a reference tool as a guide.
