This book contains clear and logical dietary advice for IBD patients. I am a Crohn's patient and the book explained to me subjects such as the difference between soluble and insoluble fibre and why mutlivitamin supplementation can be helpful in IBD. The main message of the book is to increase the amount Omega-3 fatty acid in the diet in order to promote the production of anti-inflammatory cell signalling chemicals over inflammatory ones, and the author is realistic about the quantity of Omega-3 required to affect this result. Whilst the author's style is quite repititious the advice in the book is very practical. It is easily the best book on IBD nutrition I have read.

I guess when this book was first written the information and guide lines were current, but now many of the dietary do's and don'ts in the book are not current. I have been following the autoimmune Paleo Fodmap free diet for help with IBS and Coeliacs and have had the best results ever. Many of the food recommendations in this book are not good, for example onion, garlic and apples are big NO's on the Fodmap diet and this guy recommends eating them. Some of the nutritional advice was good, but I have read so many books on this subject, especially up to date books that I feel this book is well past its sell by date.

This book was super helpful. I found out about this book on Crohn's forum and saw some great things written about it. As most diets, it is very difficult to follow it al, the way, but it gave me a great idea of some of the ch ages I needed to make to help me feel better.

I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in 1998 and have since had surgery to remove my sigmoid-colon. However, this book has proved to me that diet plays a huge role in the illness and, as a result of reading the book from cover to cover, I now understand my digestive system a lot more. The book covers some fairly complex material but is written in a way that makes it easy to follow.

I would recommend this book to anyone, whether they have a bad gut or not. I think if everyone were to read and follow it (don't worry, it's not a "rabbit food" diet) we'd all be much healthier. I have been following it since my surgery and feel great as a result!

I bought this book for my brother, who had just been rushed into hospital with a bad attack of ulcerative colitis. During his 5 week stay in hospital, he had nothing much to do, so decided to read the book. Under normal circumstances, he would have thrown the book to one side saying "it's probably a load of rubbish". However, being in hospital made him a captive audience!

He decided to put the suggestions into practise. He made note of what he'd eaten and what reaction he had. He said the reason he implemented changes to his diet, was because the reasoning was logical. It appeared that every time he deviated from the recommendations, he took a retrograde step.

It's difficult to judge the full extent of any improvement, because he came out of hospital with 4 different kinds of tablets. The main immuno suppressants were changed from intravenous to oral, which slightly impeded his progress. He firmly believes the findings are true and regards the book as his 'bible'. Hospital food is notoriously bad, but somehow he managed to order steamed fish etc. and the staff ended up bringing him different food!! He even asked his daughter to bring in sardines - for the Omega 3. A sceptic turned advocate, over night!

I sent the book straight to him, so I haven't yet read it. I'm due to see him soon, so will read it myself.

This book makes so much sense to me. I have very recently been diagnosed with Crohns disease and it seemed absolutely clear to me that my latest relapse leading to the diagnosis coincided with a short break from a fairly strict high protein diet I had been following for weight loss. Having read this book I can see that the food I had been eating while on the diet was nearly all food which is considered ok in the guidance offered in this book. While following that diet properly I had felt better than I had done for years and my spell "off the wagon" for just a couple of days included pretty much all the food which this book advocates avoiding! The advice and explanations are clear and logical, and while some of the advice, such as peeling apples, seems quite surprising, it is even more surprising that, for me anyway, it works! Unfortunately I am having to bring my condition under control through drugs at the moment, but have shown the book to my consultant, and made it clear that in the long term I want to manage it though diet rather than drugs. I have to be honest and say that he does not feel that diet plays any part, good or bad, in the onset or management of Crohns disease, but he is willing to work with me on it. Whatever your view this book is well worth a read in my opinion.

This is an excellent book that offers sound advice backed up with expert knowledge on the subject of IBD. As a Crohn's sufferer I've turned to this book to help control flare ups and get my life back together. Doctors and Crohn's experts say diet doesn't matter. They should read this and their views will change. The only criticism with the book is the poor referencing of the journal papers and books that provide much of the academic rigour to the text.
If you suffer from bowel problems you have to read this. And if you don't, read it anyway.
